The snow is over. School is almost out for the holiday. I had a cavity-free dental check up this morning. I have a day off tomorrow. I’m watching the new Big Bang Theory and tonight is the last night that Larry King will be on television. Can it get better than this?

The only thing that stands between me and this glorious three day weekend is two hours of elementary school Christmas parties where I will have to eat hardly identifiable homemade concoctions and resist the urge to hit unruly children in the head with inedible burnt sausage balls.
