Off-Topic 011: Holiday Filler 2004

20Dec2004 (Monthenor): As promised/threatened, here is the holiday filler for this year. I leave very soon for the week-long family gathering. Assuming no vehicles try to kill me I will return in the early days of January. That vehicle thing is a very real possibility, as my car cut its own brake cable in an attempt to strand me at Fleet Farm in single digit temperatures.
