This year, however, I'll be stuck in So Cal on Christmas Day--loved ones far away and nary a penny to spend on festivities.
So, here's how I'll be celebrating the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...
- Cleaning. Cleaning is free. It is fun. It should take up at least 2.5 hours of my day. Which is a start.
- McDonald's. Did you know that Mickey D's is open on Christmas Day? Well, it is. At least the one in K-Town. Hopefully the checker-playing, elderly Korean men of the neighborhood will be out in full force. Because I will talk to them. And I will join in their checkers game. And I will lead them in Christmas songs. You know I'll do it.
- Movies. No, not the in-theatre kind. The rent 'em at Ralph's from the big vending machine for $1 / day kind.
- Wine. Can you say Two Buck Chuck anyone? Sure you can--just try it.
