Housekeeping: Merry Happy Holidays, 2020 Edition
The hellfire of a year that 2020 has been is almost over, and while 2021 likely won’t be a picnic — especially at first, as we wait for the pandemic to abate as vaccines are rolled out — I don’t think too many people are going to miss this year.
As for us, we’re going to spend the next week or so limping into the new year. There will be posts here and there, but even with Covid restricting our travels, most of us are taking some time off from the blog grind. Expect TTAC lite until January 4.
And as for you people out there reading, well, I GOT A LOTTA PROBLEMS WITH YOU PEOPLE! Just kidding, Festivus was yesterday and I have no grievances to air (by the way, that episode of Seinfeld was naturally re-run yesterday, and it’s one of the show’s better ones, even aside from the Festivus plotline). I just want you all to have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season, whatever you celebrate.
Safe takes on a new meaning this year — it’s not just about not getting behind the wheel after too much mulled wine and spiked eggnog. Do what you need to do to stay Covid safe — mask up, wash or sanitize your hands frequently, avoid indoor and maskless crowds, and follow public-health guidelines if you’re getting together with anyone outside the household and/or traveling. With any luck, Christmas will be normal next year — even if normal means Uncle Stu complaining about his sciatica and Aunt Emma taking you to task for spending too much time on the “TikToks and ChatSnaps”.
Merry Christmas, belated happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa, happy holidays in general, and a joyous New Year to you all.
May 2021 be full of horsepower and torque.
