Think about all our holidays... it's true!

There's even a song about it:

They Tried To Kill Us (We Survived, Let's Eat)

Yeah - when Ilana summarized the holidays for me, she replaced "We won" to "We survived", but the concept is still the same (as well as the end result).

Heard that for the first time on J.S. a week or two ago. Was it David Sedaris? Can't remember now. Had to pause to recover. Good one busyba!

This is Thing 4's favorite pizza variant. Now I just need to convince Thing 3's kosher-ish GF that TCF says that it is good to go.
