the holiday train is coming!!!
it is at this moment that i most sympathize with ebenezer scrooge. because i do not know that i am a fan of the holiday train. though i should enthusiastically support anything that forces men fronting as santa to sit in the chicago winter open air, i simply cannot reconcile myself to a form of public transit that is a cross between a bing crosby christmas special and a game of candyland sprung to life.
