... again, home again, jiggety jig. Home again, home again, to be a fat pig.

Home. Travel? Smooth. With the exception of my ride to the airport being passed out, the day went well. Got into O'Hare just in time to buy my ticket and hop on the bus. On the road within ten minutes.

First thing I had once I got to Beloit? An eggnog shake. From Culvers. Two things that California lacks. Oh... the McD's has a shake that they call an eggnog shake (if you can even find one that serves 'em), but they ain't like here. Culvers? Nearest one is in Phoenix. It's damn criminal that they've not moved to Fresno, yet.

Back to the eggnog shake phenomenon... I asked around, and was told that they used to serve them, many years ago. Now? As a Hispanic friend of mine told me, "Find the whiteys, you'll find your shakes. You'll have to head into the mountains. Ain't no brown man gonna drink that shit, so you won't find it down here." Sooooo... I'm thinking that come St. Patty's day, should I want a shamrock shake, I'm going to have to find a damn leprechaun...

How can you have Christmas without eggnog shakes?

I wonder, how do you get those shamrock shakes? Do you have to suck a leprechaun? I'm just saying . . .

So glad to hear you made it home for the Holidays. Now you can 'shake' it up. Enjoy the moments!

That should be "Glad"... I don't know what gald is - but it doesn't sound very nice.

There are no Culvers in California?
Well, I'll be. I just looked it up and you're right. Guess butter burgers aren't healthy enough. I suppose Cali has some okay food but a few of the fast food places serve up some pretty questionable fare. I mean, fish tacos? Why would you want to eat a taco that smelled like fish? I'm just saying, too...
