A Tough Announcement

Well, this isn’t easy, but I suppose today is as good a day as any to announce that I am leaving Little Italy behind to go and manage an Olive Garden. Just kidding, who do I look like, Danielle Smith? Ya, no. Not happening. Okay, all kidding aside, I have lots to get to today. We’ll see you at lunch, and in the meantime, please enjoy a different take on a Christmas classic.

One Of My Favorite Christmas Stories

Okay, so here we sit, a mere 8 sleeps to Christmas and I am almost done my shopping but I still need a few things, a few being for my son. Reminds me of a very pleasant experience I got to have a few years ago shopping for him. My son is an aviation junkie. Already at 13 he knows so much about them, makes, models you name it. Anyways, a few years ago he wanted some model planes, not the kind you assemble, but the small die cast kind. Well, we were really up against it, so much so we took a late Sunday night drive to the Edmonton Airport. Well wouldn’t you know it, every single kiosk on the general side was closed. However, the ones on the secured side were still open. Trick is, how do you clear security so that you can go to some of the kiosks to try and purchase a couple of late Christmas gifts for your son? You don’t. You don’t get to clear security, it just isn’t going to happen. What does happen though, is you meet a very personable and understanding Airport Security Officer by the name of Bert Jager. This guy is a gem. Although at first he looked at us with a touch of skepticism, he quickly came around to understanding our plight. So good old Bert goes and looks in the kiosk for us and with $50 in hand from us, he purchased our requested gifts. It was really just such an awesome feeling to have him help us out like that. He didn’t have to, but he did. Thanks Bert, that act of kindness has never been forgotten. Oh, and my son loved his planes, still does, keeps adding to his collection. Okay, time to get some lunch on the go. Oh and it’s Chanukah starting today, so here is Adam Sandler.

Tips On Being A Parking Spot Holiday Stalker

Well here are are a mere 13 sleeps away from Christmas, and the 2nd last weekend to venture out to the malls and get some shopping in.  Although I am tempted to go, because I only go the malls with Cinnzeo in them, I think I will bypass the weekend madness and maybe hold off until a weekday after work, do some shopping and indulge in a Cinnzeo. We’ll see. Plus I don’tfeel like playing parking lot stalker. You know the people, the ones that slowly creep about 20 feet behind someone walking into the parking lot. You gently apply the gas, not too much, easy on the brake, not too hard, no need to squeal. Wait for them, watch them, are they near their car? you have to have your hand ready for the turn signal, becasue that’s the international parking lot law that indicates right of way right? If your blinker is on, that’s basically telling everyone approaching from the other side that you got dibs. Here’s a tip, watch for them to hit their lock button, the headlights will flash, then you can stake your claim. Then, they get in the car, loading their 3 kids or so, the back up lights will be on, but they can’t leave yet, because they need to check their phone and tweet about how crazy the mall was first. Then and after a minute or so, they back away from the stall and you really want to zip in their, just in case the other car tries to pull a fast one and snag your spot. Yes it really is a joyful experience. Anyways, be patient, there is still some fun to be had. Speaking of fun, I hope you come in with your Ugly Christmas Sweater on today. You will get a dollar off your meal for showing us your yuletide ugliest. We’ll be wearing ours, and they’re spectacular. Well mine is anyways….Oh wow, just 13 more sleeps to Christmas, which means tomorrows starts the 12 days of Christmas right? Well to kick that off, I present the Italian spin with the 12 Days of Guido Christmas.

Happy December 9th

So the Mighty Oilers are back at it tonight, trying to build on that big win Sunday night against the Sharks. They go for 2 in a row against the same Sharks back in San Jose. I see where Ottawa fired Paul MacLean this after they came from behind to beat Vancouver on Sunday night and not that far removed from having made the playoffs. There record isn’t that bad and are only 4 points back of a wild card spot. I guess they just have different expectations in Ottawa, you know, with all that rich deep history of championships and whatnot. Oh well….We’re having some fun here as we get into the spirit of the season. That’s why the next 2 Friday’s are Ugly Christmas Sweater Fridays. Where your U.C.S. and score yourself a dollar off any of our coffee drinks. Yes, we will be wearing ours. So yesterday we had the jingle dogs, and today, we give the cats their due. Enjoy today’s Christmas tune from the Jingle Cats.
