Fuck, but I hate the holidays. All those images of happy people with familes and warmth and joy. I think this season is designed specifically to make loner losers like me kill ourselves. Well, they won't defeat me, dammit! I will survive and kick Santa in the ass!
"The Mets were great in 'sixty eight,
The Cards were fine in 'sixty nine,
But the Cubs will be heavenly in nineteen and seventy."
