Countdown to Christmas #5: Egg Nog

Marge: Homer, didn't you get any milk? All I see is egg nog. 
Homer: 'Tis the season, Marge! We only get thirty sweet noggy days. Then the government takes it away again.


Honestly, I have no idea why I like egg nog so much. I can't even describe how it tastes (it's, uh, creamy, and, um, nutmeg-y...?) but I loves it.

Maybe it's just because, as Homer suggests, that like the Bacon Club Chalupa, Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist and Frankenberry, we can only have it for a limited time before it gets taken away again.

    Ditto, and tell me about it.

    have you ever had the alcohol version?

    Oddly enough, considering I like booze and egg nog, I have not. I really should some time.

    @Joan: Consider it done.

    Oh, good to know. I will have to pick some up as well.

  6. ooooh, organic egg nog, you say? On it.

    I recently picked up a giant carton with Sam and he looked at me all wide-eyed. "you're not going to drink all that are you?" my reply, "i most certainly am. It's only once a year, dude! Tis the season and all that crap."

    mmmm, I wish I had some here with me at work.

    It's like Christmas music. Gotta fit a year's worth of nog into one month.
