It's Beginning to Looks a Lot Like Christmas?

Yesterday evening not one but two homeless men serenaded me with "The Christmas Song." While walking through the Dupont Circle area with two friends, we stopped to give each of them a couple bucks, and each, in turn, began to croon us a carol -- the same carol, as it turns out. You know the one: "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."

It's not often that three Jews receive Christmas musical performances while walking to the bar on a Tuesday evening.

That's appropriate because the song was co-written by Mel Torme (who was also Jewish).

I love hearing your wit!!! Good job giving a few bucks and helping mankind; hopefully it wasn't spent on booze but something a little better for them!

I'm responding to your comment on my post here because I can't find an email address for you! Umm you should totally come to the Blog Ball. I will be there, and I promise I am nice and friendly! I predict that everyone will get very drunk and probably not remember their own names - you won't have to worry that they can't remember yours.
