The Oslo Christmas Tree has been lit, and it can only mean one thing. Time for Ed to go on vacation.
Yep, I'm climbing aboard one of those big jet planes and leaving the rock today.
But Ed, it's only December 7, 2004. There are still 18 shopping days before Christmas.
Yeah, yeah. But remember, I've got loads of siblings and nieces and nephews to shop for. I need a head start.
But before you readers get vacation envy, you should know that for the first week this will be a working vacation. You see, I'm headed to Florida to write a destination piece for our magazine.
And I expect it to be so warm that I'll be forced to wear shorts, and maybe even go swimming to cool down.
Oh, woe is me. EW
