Yeah, PoppaGator hasn't posted here since Thursday.

I find that passive aggression is always a lot more fun than direct confrontation. You're still every bit as pissed off as you would be with the direct route, but some people may not notice, and it sure makes things a lot more peaceful on the surface. Plus, you can tell stories about it (I love thinking stuff like that up). OTOH, once the syrup was gone, direct confrontation was pointless, so you only had to deal with the aftermath.

I saw curmudgeon in the store yesterday and reminded him about pancakes. It's not really part of my tradition, but any excuse for butter and maple syrup... I also have to find some appropriate clothing for work.
