First the bad news: remember that Christmas party we were going to go to? Well, we can't make it.
I'm bummed out about not going, but all you really need to do is substitute the word "Christmas Party" in place of "BBQ" and you're pretty much there.
The good news is that I have a nice bunch of stories for you. Freaks, idiots, dullards, simpletons, assholes, a Cow and a Brit.
In the meantime, here is a vacation shot for you to drool over. Feel free to steal it for your own use.
