Merry Christmas: The Run on Eggnog Edition

Filed under: local news — Tags: , , — edge of the sandbox @ 9:25 pm

We have the eve of the Christmas eve tradition of drinking eggnog and bourbon and watching Marx brothers movies.  Only this year we had hard time finding eggnog two days before Christmas.  For some reason most stores in our town sold out of eggnog, so we nearly had to go to Oakland.

Anywho, merry Christmas to my Christian friends and happy Festivus to everyone else.

We are going to LA tomorrow morning, but a comment by Infidel de Manhattan made me think of a little essay I wrote for a zine a had 10 years ago.  I think I might just find and post it.




  1. Out of egg nog? Yikes!

    I’m not much of a drinker, but I DO enjoy egg nog with brandy from Thanksgiving through New Year’s.

    Merry Christmas to you, Edge! May the weekend be filled with the best of surprises!

  2. At least you’re not looking for butter in Norway!

  3. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and here’s to the Bestest New Year ever, Missy Lady.

    I hear that one can actually make homemade egg nog, but not sure of the ingredients beyond the egg, and the nog . . .

    what’s a nog, anyway?

    my best,
