(Or: If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em!)I recently had the pleasure of helping a friend of mine, Bitchy Bluestocking copy edit a draft of her rather lively Christmas experience in our fair burgh. As of today, dear readers, it is up! Follows is my favorite passage:

…I told my roommates that I’ll be in Istanbul from January 13 through the 18. If during that time they’re awakened by Martin Luther King, Jr. carols then they’re welcome to join the party — I’m serious, we have a standing invitation — and drink as much of the landlord’s booze, smoke as many of his cigarettes, and tell everyone spierdalaj (spear-doll-eye), Polish for “fuck off,” which I take as being the true meaning of Christmas — or any other holiday — in the 94th precinct.

Read it for yourself. It’s a hoot!
