Once upon a time, a Russian couple was walking down the
street
in
St.
Petersburg when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I

think
it's
raining," he
said to his wife.

"No, that felt more like snow to me," she replied. "No,

I'm
sure
it
was
just
rain," he said. Well, as these things go, they were

about to
have a
major
argument about whether it was raining or snowing. Just

then
they
saw
a
minor
communist party official walking toward them. "Let's not
fight
about
it,"
the man said, "let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's
officially
raining
or
snowing."

As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us,

Comrade
Rudolph,
is
it
officially raining or snowing?"

"It's raining, of course," he answered and walked on.

But
the
woman
insisted: "I know that felt like snow!"

To which the man quietly replied: "Rudolph the Red knows
rain,
dear!"

Lame. Totally lame. Its the sort of joke Dickless would

tell
at
xmas
time.

You think he would do that well? I didn't realize he even

had a
sense
of
humour.

I don't think he does. BTW, would you like to hear some more

music
from
movies?

Anything but that!!

OK, consider it pluto'd.

Thanks!

You're welcome.

Say, is it snowing over there where you are?

No :-( Not a single flake, and some of the lawns are still green.


Strange.

Do you guys have all the same winter Xmas songs that we do, like "Sleigh
Ride" & "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas"?


More or less. A bit odd when you consider how hot it is.

I'm so sick of the stupid Xmas
songs in all the stores & malls - next year I'm getting my shopping done
early!


Or wait for the post-xmas sales.


That would be early for next year :-)


Ours start on Boxing Day.

No wait ... that's an even bigger madhouse!


You're probably right. Maybe I'll just order online next time.


Just don't buy from anyone disreputable. Like say a certain FORTRAN
programmer hocking crap.

Ours too. Actually, that's when I buy all my Xmas cards and put them away
for next year.


Smart move.

No wait ... that's an even bigger madhouse!

He's not selling anything I'm interested in.


No market for used octocontrafarttubes, eh? What about recordings by
bands of ABBA? Might make cheap xmas stocking stuffers.
