Snicker!

Now here's an interesting item anent the world trade talks. My thanks to hakeber for pointing this out...

In other news, it's raining (Ok, that's not big news lots of places but this is Los Angeles. And while it's technically the rainy season, actual rain tends to wait a few weeks into January.) Pausing to check the Weather Underground predictions for Pasadena... Hmm.. Monday: Rain and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Breezy. Rain may be heavy at times. Highs in the 50s. Southeast winds 20 to 30 with gusts up to 40 mph. Maybe this is the year we finally see it rain on the Rose Parade (On Jan 2 this year since Jan 1 is a Sunday). Though I doubt it - the radar map makes it look like most of the storm will pass south of us and Tuesday's "Partly Cloudy" may turn up on Monday AM after all. And of course there are the two local theories as to why rain usually does not fall on the Rose Parade: God likes to watch, and the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce knows weather magic. :)

On the other hand, you can COUNT on it raining on the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York!

Well, you wouldn't want to break up a tradition!

Speaking of which I had my usual New Years Eve celebration - attend the Times Square celebration vicariously over the TV and 3 hour time delay, whilst sipping something fizzy (Martinelli's Apple Cider this year) in company with Nicolai and Vicky, then as the celebrants slowly filter out of the crowded square go home the easy way.. by turning around and crawling straight into bed. :) Between Christmas and Hanukkah I get enough partying this time of year.

In fact I just got back from one tonight over at the Golds. Barry Gold's latkes.... mmmmmmmmmm.....
