Happy Chanukah!

Sufganiot and Latkes for all. As I am perhaps the only one of the Tribe who dislikes latkes, I fully embrace the jelly doughnut as a religious celebration today.

Last night, my wife and I were out at Barnes and Nobel, and ended up buying a book for our son. We had picked up a Dr. Seuss classic, as he’s really starting to enjoy them.

In line I was making a slight mockery of the Chanukah cards that they had displayed. Its not exactly a holiday you send cards for. I was wondering who was still a bundle of nerves, having so much Chanukah decorating to do, so much to get ready, with the one candle and all.

The lady in line behind me noted: Isn’t it a bit ironic that you’re buying Green Eggs and Ham as a Chanukah present for your son?

Sam, I am.
