Jingle All the Way

Happy New Year! At long last, The Armchair is back. Whether or not it's better than ever remains to be seen.

So what have I been doing all of this time? Well, when I wasn't scaling mountains or taming wild boar, I was building wind turbines with my bare hands and feeding the hungry in the slums of Potosí. Don't believe me?

The truth is, I have been busy. I've been everywhere from London... Brussels... Branson, Missouri.

And you wouldn't believe the celebrities I've run into along the way!

Yet somehow, when I wasn't making new friends or experiencing the thrill of my brakes failing or discovering I like pickle spears, I was wasting a lot of time. Consider the fact that I recently watched the better part of Jingle All the Way. Surely I could have spent that time updating my blog.

1996 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad stars in the new movie "Jingle All The Way".

Apparently Sinbad (see above) has jingled his way into a lot of trouble. Wikipedia claims that Mr. David Adkins "has the third highest tax delinquency of all active delinquencies in California." Pay your taxes, Dave.

Anyway, we'll get back to the meat and potatoes next time. Or should I say, Fleisch und Kartoffeln? The topic: Graz, Austria. Why? Because Sinbad's hometown is Benton Harbor, Michigan.


(Whatever, like you would have been able to resist.)
