Home for the Hostilities Volume II

Last year I composed this post. It still contains many truths but I thought I would update it a tad!

Congratulations! You survived last year. Now here we are again.

Most of us will be traveling over the holidays. Well, those of us who still have $200 in our flat busted savings accounts may be able to eke out a berth on a transatlantic cargo ship manned by former Chinese and Somali pirates who are licking their chops while they look at you.

Assuming you can go anywhere and actually pack anything without having it confiscated at the airport because it's pointy, fluid, or is a book by Patrick Buchanan, once you get to your destination you may have some challenges. Be charitable.

Or, perhaps this year you are having people over to save money because no one has any money to go anywhere. I don't know what you are all going to eat because no one has money for more then that radioactive powder with dry pasta in a blue box these days.

WTH am I saying? There's no reason for this post! No one is going anywhere or doing anything this holiday season.

That said: GO TO CHURCH! OFTEN! PRAY OFTEN!!! GO TO CONFESSION (not general absolution!) You've got time. Yep, it may cost you-only if you don't.

Even better news: no worries about family conflicts this year, everyone is too flat broke to get in your face!

If Buchanan ever comes out with a pointy, liquid-filled book, you are totally hosed.
