Okay, who wants to go see the Gaithersburg holiday lights?

I'm thinkin' Thursday. Maybe go for a coffee at Mayorga in King Farm afterwards? (That's near the Shady Grove Metro.)

C'mon, somebody else has to be a sucker for holiday light displays!! It's $10 for a carload of people - a bargain for 3.5 miles of festive fun! Whoo-hoo!

So... any takers?

Remember Carson Williams?

I noticed that they are using his 2004 display for a beer commercial during a football game over the weekend.

I kid you not, it was for a "lite" beer. Get it? LOL!

Hopefully, he will make enough to money to pay for next year's show.

I schlep to Les Boonies for one reason and one reason only: To visit my hairdresser. But I have seen those before. It's... quite a spectacle. Have fun!

VO - I hope he's getting a nice paycheck for that. The beer companies can sure afford it.

Chairborne - if you can get a flight from Baghdad, you're on! I was planning on Thursday, but that schedule might be a little tight for your particular travel agent, eh?

Always - I totally understand that! I was in Baltimore tonight to pick up a friend at BWI, and I stopped by Hampden to see the lights there. The traffic was wacked, but it was fun.

Suze - you would be very, very welcome company!!

Cheers!

I swore after I wrote my last piece on flaccid Santas that I was done with Christmas for the year. Time for me to start packing it away. I did have a good holiday, though and managed to see a lot of fun things.
