This, from 119 years ago –
This from much later –
Not many more days until Christmas, which means there’s a good chance you’ve either been or will be going to a Christmas party.
A time to put on your best sweatshirt because it’s important to look nice while heading across the room to where the booze is.
I myself like Christmas parties much better than Halloween parties. Ever since I showed up at a Halloween party and was the only one with a costume. With Christmas parties, there’s no costume. Except for the lampshape on the head after drinking DKRFSB.
I’m almost comfortable at Christmas parties. In fact, all I ever worry about are small things like foreign objects hanging from my nose, holes in my socks, and saying something I’ll regret for the next fourteen years.
Other than that, pretty darn comfortable.
Habs in Philly Thursday night.
And speaking of Philly – This, from Feb. 11, 2010:
PK Called Up
PK Subban has been called up to play in Philadephia Friday night. This is terrific news because the young buck is considered a keeper and part of the future of the Habs blueline, but it also reminds us that it’s a little bit like pre-season in Montreal right now, with guys being called up and sent down and others called up etc.
It’s never boring with the Montreal Canadiens.
