Well, I'm going to take a much needed break from this golf blog to enjoy some of the balmy weather here in Los Angeles. It won't be a White Christmas here, but I'd much rather have a "Sunny" Christmas in T-shirts and shorts each and every year. I lived on the east coast for about 3 years so I know that people who claim to want a White Christmas are just trying to make something positive out of a miserable situation. I think my sociology professor called this "cognitive dissonance
Here's what a White Christmas means to me:
- Freezing your arse off
- Layering and bundling, but the cold still finds the smallest opening to freeze your arse off
- Staying indoors and going stir crazy
- Sliding out of control on the icy roads
- Astronomical heating bills
- And most of all, no golf
Anyway, I plan to play a couple of local So. California courses with some friends that are visiting for the holidays. I may also venture out to Vegas for some cooler climate golf and some Texas Hold'em...
I will return to golf blog again in the first week of 2005. Best wishes to all.
