Christmas is Coming...

"It's beginning to look a lot like... Florida..." What?

I live in the Kansai area of Japan, near Kobe, and it just doesn't feel like Christmas this year. The coldest it's gotten at night is around freezing, and today was 55 degrees. It only snows 2-3 times a year in a cold year, and maybe 1/2" will stick once.

You know, like Christmas in Florida. I remember watching "Invasion USA" in college, and thinking that not only was this a particulary stupid movie, but also that Christmas and Florida just didn't fit. Palm trees and Santa Claus? His name isn't Suntana Claus, you know. His nose is red because of the cold (and the high-octane eggnog), not sunburn.

Although Florida, at least, has eggnog. I'd give my left ___ for a carton of that thick artery clogging 'nog. I've tried to make it myself, and I always end up overcooking it, and have a pot full of custard.

So, here's hoping for a little snow?
