‘Tis the season

Festivus season is nearly upon us. Have you picked up your aluminum pole? Are you ready for the Feats of Strength? Have you catalogued all the ways the people closest to you have disappointed you for the “Airing of Grievances”? If not, you may not be ready for Festivus.

My plans for the holiday are pretty simple – take advantage of the lull to get caught up on a zillion things I’ve been letting fall by the side lately due to time constraints. But, the apocalypse is an unforgiving wench, and “I didnt have time” will NOT be accepted as an excuse for being underprepared when the wheels fly off things.

Things I need to do? Well, I have, literally, a pile of various packs, vests, pouches, and other gear about two feet high. It’s piled in a corner waiting for me to get it put away to the proper place. I’m sure there are some things in that stack that I should pull aside, take pictures of, and post about. Perhaps thats what I’ll do on the various holidays.

What does Commander Zero want for Festivus? Hmm. Well, I want a couple things that money can’t buy, but when it comes to things money can buy I wouldnt mind a couple cases of .223 or 7.62×39, a lovely Ruger 22/45 Tactical, or just a metric buttload of Amazon gift cards. What about you? What’s at the top of your “What I Want For [Hanukah/Kwanzaa/Festivus/Christmas/VoodooDay]”? Is it a gun? A vehicle? A knife? A supermodel with low self-esteem and poor judgement?

I need to figure out what sorts gifts to get the LMI. For Paratus I passed out 10/22 mags to everyone on my Paratus list (hey, I had plenty of them to go around so why not). It’d be tacky to give more of the same so I need to think about this a bit. Maybe PMags or some freeze drieds.
