No Chinese here … — 5 Comments

  1. Black-eyed peas is another must. It always amused me that we Jews (well, the Sephardic community) share that one dish on our new year holiday as well, and I believe for the same reason. The Hebrew word for these beans is “rubiah”, similar to the word for “to increase” – “rab.”. They symbolize increasing one’s merits. We just don’t mix ’em with collards or pork of any type, lol…

    Chinese! Movie! Movie is a must, even VH1 is showing Xmas music videos. Might just hit the closest redbox (these things are like mobile blockbusters, look like British phone booths, can rent a movie for a buck a day).

  2. Why mac and cheese-someone on the staff is Southern. I just got off the phone with my sister and that is exactly what she is preparing for the big family dinner at her sister-in-law’s house.

  3. Thanks for sharing the description of the dinner at the base. Your posts make the situation so much more real.

  4. I hope you had a nice peaceful time of it. I would have expected that the people in the hills would make a point of shooting lots of rockets just to make their point on Christmas eve.
