Happy Festivus

I would have held some festivus gathering but a lot of folks have cleared out of town for Christmas. That’s a problem with being a city like ours, so many people are from somewhere else that Christmas is celebrated elsewhere.
Anyway, Festivus.
For dinner I’ll be having either the salad mix I bought from the Dupont Circle farmer’s market last week, or pasta salad or something from Thai X-ing because I love curry.
No festivus pole.
Ah, the Airing of Grievances:
My neighbors who have friends who come by after midnight on a school night honking their horns instead of getting their butts out of the car and knocking on the door, get new friends.
Dear lovely people of Dunkin Donuts, how hard is it to have glazed doughnuts after 5pm? You’ve got 5 more hours to go before closing.
Corbit (the boxer dog) stop being crazy, you know it’s me, stop barking at me.
People of Square 507, stop stealing the neighborhood cats. The cats don’t even want to hang out on my block anymore.
For the Feats of Strength, I challenge Jimbo, who having way more muscle mass than little old me, oh, this will take all of 1 second.

  1. You need to get better cat food & play with them.

    Happy Holidays!

    Oh…tell the rats we said hello 😉

  2. Amen on the DD mention…can we also get our favorite coffee in less than 15 minutes -especially when it’s cold and we’re standing OUTSIDE? I know they’re warm, but just pour the drink and let me go.

  3. we not “stealing them” so to speak. It’s not like I WANT to spend that kind of money at Petsmart on cat food, and when the cashier asks how many cats we have we say, oh, like 25! The neighborhood cats just know that we are suckers.

  4. I think I have the same neighbors with honking (honky?) friends that you do.

    Do you need something moved around in your house or something? I can help, but I have limits due to the bad back.

  5. From Wiki:
    The Feats of Strength: The head of the family tests his or her strength against one participant of the head’s choosing. Festivus is not considered over until the head of the family has been pinned to the ground. A participant is allowed to decline to attempt to pin the head of the family only if they have something better to do instead.
    Jim-
    As I said, ‘1 second’ because a) you are far stronger than I and b) you usually do have something better to do.
