Harv's a smart motherfucker

The Christmas Song - the original Nat King Cole version. How did we lose all our class and style? The CEO came to shake my hand an hour ago and I'm having scotches at my club until I need to leave.

I agree - whatever that italicized part means.

Usually the Christmas season is very hard for me. Starting around Dec. 22, I just hunker down emotionally and try to get through it. But for some reason, I'm very happy this Christmas season. I don't know what's different about this year.

Reading this made me smile, L'Inc. Glad you're in good cheer for Christmas. Have a great one.

Making me happy is a few weeks where all I have to do is exist. A nice little hiatus from our usual lives. Sitting out back in the sun with a pipe and a Bourbon right now (Pappy 15), doing some reading, cruising the Netwebs, and knowing the most pressing thing I have to do today is decide what wines we're bringing to dinner tonight.

Hope everyone is having as relaxing a week as we are.

I'll be honest, I've been spelling honour and neighbour and all those words with a u because it pissed off my fourth grade English teacher, Mrs. Delany. The dictionary we had at the time had honour as an alternate spelling which therefore was not technically wrong on a spelling test. I hated her so much that every chance I could to fuck with her I took advantage of. The spelling has since stuck with me and every time I write it I think of her being unhappy with me and it makes me happy.

When I was in second grade, I insisted on spelling Jeff as Geoff, even if the person's name really was Jeff. I had a baseball card for Geoff Zahn of the Twins, and my mom explained to me that it was pronounced "Jeff." I thought that was the coolest thing in the world. My teacher did not.

You should have just gone full blown and used "Gottfried."

Spoke to one of my clients in state prison. His case is shit but he's really looking forward to tonight. Amid the terrible drudgery of prison there is one bright point amongst the rapes and beatings. On Christmas Eve every prisoner gets an ice cream sandwich.

Merry christmas.

Ham is my least favorite of all roasts. I'm doing a tenderloin roast. Made one about 8 weeks ago and it was icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
