Dashing Through December

Some holiday elves spread Christmas cheer through Cape May

during the Elf Dash on Saturday, December 18. As 2021 comes to a

close, a little cheer is exactly what we all need. Aleksey Moryakov

Reopening Presidents Weekend in February

Beach & Grant 609-884-3772

Every week, the Exit Zero crew goes for lunch (or dinner or,

maybe even on occasion, breakfast) at one of Cape May’s

excellent dining establishments. Then we give you the skinny

on what we ate, what we talked about (or some of what we

talked about), who spat their drink from laughing too hard,

who served us, who we bumped into and, you know, the general lay

of the land.

The place: The warm and cozy dining room at the Blue Pig Tavern

inside Congress Hall. We haven’t eaten out in a while and Jack wanted

to treat Kayla and Nicole to a Christmas lunch before we were off for

the holiday weekend.

The surprise: Despite the hustle and bustle of town, we were able

to grab a parking spot and table with ease on this Thursday afternoon.

It was VERY cold out — probably the lowest temp we’ve seen thus far

— so it was nice to have a seat near the roaring fireplace to keep us

warm.

The conversation: With so much going on between the ferry terminal,

Exit Zero Filling Station and the whole new baby thing in the

Wright household, this was one of the few days we saw Jack for more

than 20 minutes here and there through the day. It was nice to chat

about the work being done at our other location and hear about some

exciting updates. We also chatted about our holiday plans and how

crazy they can be when you have multiple families to visit, whether or

not they are our own. Laughs were shared at the expense of each other

— details cannot be published, but would we expect anything less?

The drinks: Since it was a holiday, Jack said he was going to enjoy

a glass of merlot and encouraged Kayla and Nicole to do the same.

After a little arm twisting, they decided to enjoy a couple of bloody

marys. It was just what we all needed after a hectic couple of days.

The food: We all decided what we wanted to eat pretty quickly.

Jack went for the steak frite with a side salad, Kayla enjoyed the

chicken BLT with a side salad and Nicole the turkey avocado and

bacon sandwich, BUT she went with French fries. Jack at least waited

until she was boxing up her leftovers to begin picking at her fries.

The takeaway: The Blue Pig never disappoints. With the restaurant

being open year-round, it’s convenient and delicious.

Undertow

Terry O’Brien’s legendary column... social satire, shameless plugs — and general self-indulgence

In the immortal words of Barry Manilow,

looks like we made it. It’s my last one of

these for the year and I’ve got 10 months

worth of leftover notes, so you can

expect a really low-effort offering this

week. (I know, I know, they all seem really

low-effort but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet…)

I would do a whole Year In Review thing

but, really, who wants to linger on 2021 one

second longer than they have to? Let’s just

start with a clean slate in 2022, when things

are bound to get better, right? (He says as

2020 laughs maniacally in the distance…)

We managed to have a serviceable

Christmas this year despite half the O’Brien

adults not working much in the last quarter.

I’m usually your average, depressed, Irish,

tamp-your-feelings-way-down-deep-inside-then-drown-them-in-alcohol

type, but

took a mental health break in October that

laundered my karma (good), while eviscerating

my bank account (bad). Thankfully,

our sons are grown enough to want mostly

clothes and gift cards because PS5s and

iPhones weren’t happening. We also enjoyed

a wonderful breakfast (cooked by me) and

a wonderful dinner (cooked by me) while

watching the sneakily excellent Enctanto

on Disney+ as Owen and Jackson argued,

Henry played on his phone and Cathrine

kept asking me “what just happened?” In

other words, an awesome day.

Speaking of breakfast, I’m sure there’s

some deep-seated psychological reason why

I make my (delicious) breakfast potatoes by

cooking big potatoes, then chopping those

big potatoes into small potatoes, a task that

takes the better part of an hour, when there

are literally dozens of pre-seasoned breakfast

potatoes hanging in Acme that you just

brown and serve. Probably something to do

with my Catholic upbringing, but as a good

Irish boy, I’d rather tamp those feelings down

until I die than talk about them.

I spent my Christmas week reading Jack

Reacher novels. Three of them. All great.

Couldn’t tell you what one of them was

about.

Speaking of books I love but can’t

remember, the Station Eleven adaptation on

HBO is stunning (for five episodes, anyway).

Turns out I completely memory-dumped the

book, though, because every moment has

been a wonderful surprise. (Warning: It’s

bleak. New moms should NOT watch it. Jack

Wright, this is me telling you to keep Diane

Stopyra away from it in case you’re too thick

to break my code.)

It’s always jarring when Larry Crinkle

pops up on my TV (which is, somehow,

mysteriously, always tuned to Fox 29 every

Sunday at noon). I’ve got this

and the Showtime bit I filmed

last week under my 2021 belt,

and I’m up for a “modeling” gig

on QVC that would put a nice

button on my year. Hey, wait

a minute… Brady Schoenrock,

doesn’t your fella have some pull

up there? Tell Jeff Raiczyk to put

a good word in for me, willya?

I won’t do nude but I will do

thong. Test photos incoming…

Because my wife and I

both have problems sleeping (I

have apnea because I’m 80lbs

overweight, she thrashes and

screams because of a nerve disorder

and crippling meth addiction)

we often trade between bed

and couch. Well, a few nights ago

as I stretched out on our new

sectional, she says, “You don’t

have to sleep out here tonight.

Come to the bedroom with me if

you want. I can’t promise it’ll be

very pleasant, but…”

And they say that romance

is dead.

I recently suffered a catastrophic

eye injury while playing

peekaboo. They put me in the

ICU.

Good News/Bad News of the

Week: Bummed to go two weeks

in a row without Jehovanny

Nunez being at Antojos to chat

about the latest goings-on the

in Marvel Cinematic Universe

last Thursday, but turns out he

was absent for a pretty good reason;

helping bring little Manuel

into the world. Congratulations

to Gee and Kerri and good luck

entering your 40s with a tod-

dler(HAHAHAHAHAHAHA-

HAHAHAHAHAHA!)

By the time you read this

I will have started my new job

in the warehouse for the good

people at Cape May Peanut

Butter Co. and Cape May Olive

Oil Co. and Wingnutz and The

Spice Cellar of Cape May and

the Weed Dispensary Co. of

Cape May (okay, not yet). I’m

not exactly sure what it is I’ll be

doing, but whatever it is they’ll

be paying me, so I’ll try to do it

pretty well. Unfortunately, Tim

Shriver works there, as well,

meaning every day will start

with a 15-minute ball-breaking

session over coffee before any

actual work gets done.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

isn’t the most fun I’ve had at

a Marvel movie (that honor is

shared by Guardians of the Galaxy

and Avengers: Infinity Way) but it’s

awful damn close. A nerdgasm

of the highest order. It was a

travesty that Spider-Man 2 was

not nominated for Best Picture

in 2004 (which The Incredibles

should have won) and it will be

a travesty now, especially with

the expanded format, which

was implemented precisely for

movies like this. You know, ones

that people have actually seen,

as opposed to whatever gay

fish-screwing Korean teacher

drama is currently knocking

them dead in Manhattan.

Lastly this year, along with

my new job for the Peanut Butter

Mafia (which makes sense,

because I’m chunky, yet smooth),

I’ll be returning to the mic at

Exit Zero this Saturday (with a

bonus gig on Sunday) before settling

into Fridays and Saturdays

for the long haul. We’re calling

these gigs Terry O’Brien & Co.

as I’ll be playing with an array of

wingmen this year. I’m excited to

work with these guys and I think

you’ll enjoy them, too.

Additionally, and as I’ve

been teasing for the last, oh, 18

months, I’m pleased to announce

that my tribute bands, Love Me

Dudes (Beatles) and The Terry

O’Brien Band (Beatles/Billy/

Bruce), will be playing every

third Sunday at Exit Zero Ferry

Station (EZ’s new Cape May-

Lewes Ferry venture) starting…

when they open! (Hopefully

March, probably April.) More

details when we come back in

February, but it’s a killer group of

musicians.

Out of space. I love you all!

’Til next year, don’t get

caught in The Undertow.

A

picture may be worth a thousand

words, but when it comes to good

filmmaking the words still count!

One Oscar category I’ve been

drawn to recently is Outstanding

Achievement in Visual Effects. This used to

be called special effects. Either way, it seems

to be reserved for blockbuster films — despite

the fact that many smaller films take the time

to artfully consider the visually pleasing.

This year, Variety magazine has five predictions

for its top visual arts movies. Three

of them are superhero movies, not surprisingly,

with Spider-Man: No Way Home, Eternals,

and Shang-Chi. A reimagining of Dune and

continuing saga of The Matrix round out the

category predictions.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is

visually stunning! This martial arts superhero

movie also gets credit for being well-written

— although sometimes formulaic storytelling

needs to be overwhelmed by the aesthetic.

Like many movies from the Marvel Universe,

you barely have time to catch your breath to

The Movie Column

By arts columnist Tom Sims

see the subtle overuse of some story elements.

What’s becoming clear is that Marvel has

mastered the art of keeping the plot simple.

It adds a great deal of humor, especially with

comedic favorite Awkwafina as the would-be

leading lady. In years past, some superhero

movies featured too many characters and subplots

that made me feel less entertained and

more like I needed a scorecard in the theater.

Not the case with Shang-Chi.

Simu Liu plays the lead character, a son

who is uncertain about the powers his father

wants to bestow. The father is played by Xu

Wenwu. Ben Kingsley’s character also brings

a lot of comic relief. Even though this could be

a complicated story, Marvel keeps the mood

light and the action lively. As I think about it,

“lively” is a huge understatement.

Some debate that visual effects are just

another way of saying cinematography. Not

sure I disagree with this. But you are not going

to get a listing of superhero movies under

cinematography — just not going to happen.

What you get there is a list of the nominees

for best picture. That’s just the way it works.

And it’s unlikely that superhero movies will be

nominated for screenplay adaptation. Variety

gives Shang-Chi a nod all the way down on its

list of movies for this nomination.

So get in front of a big screen and see

some of these cool flix over the holidays.

Don’t forget to email flixyoumissed@gmail.

com about the experience! Merry Christmas

and Joyous Kwanzaa! See you in 2022!

Bird Droppings

Dispatches from the nation’s birdwatching capital… by Seymore Thanu

Every season has its special charms,

winter notwithstanding. When wife

Linda and I first became involved,

we asked each other the important

questions that couples ask. “Favorite

book?” “Favorite movie?”

And while I no longer know the answers

to those questions, I do recall Linda’s surprise

to my response to her question, “What is your

favorite season?”

“Winter,” I replied.

“Not summer?” she probed.

“No...” I replied, simply but sincerely, “...I

hate summer.”

Summer means sweating under the sheets

at night and breathing the same air they were

breathing in Birmingham, yesterday. Give me

the clean, crisp ice-tinged air seeping out of

Canada, anytime. It makes every breath intoxicating

and the low-lying winter light gilds the

landscape. Summer air blurs the edges and

coats the world in bland uniformity.

I guess winter light helps explain why I

find winter waterfowl so appealing. That and

their abundance. In summer, ducks and geese

are paired and spread out across the Prairies

and the Arctic. Only in winter do the birds

coalesce into flocks where their cavorting and

gabble is a seasonal delight.

In February, if you head for coastal inlets

that are stirred by the tide, you can hear the

courtship calls of male Long-taileds. It sounds

like the birds are saying South Southerly...

South Southerly....” In fact, “South Southerly,”

was the name market gunners ascribed to

the flagellum-tailed birds. In the Arctic the

Inuit know the bird as the “Ah-guy-achook,”

Another phonetic rendering of the duck’s call.

One vocalizing bird will set off a chain reaction

of calls followed by a spirited tail chase

in which females invite suitors to show their

best stuff.

One Spring, Linda and I were camped

at the edge of the seasonal ice sheet near

Pond Inlet, Nunavut. Spring was running late,

and thousands of Long-tailed Ducks were

jammed up against the ice, waiting for tundra

ponds to thaw. Sleep was about impossible

given the din of yodeling Long-taileds and the

near 24-hour sunlight. The threat of prowling

Polar Bears only added to our inability to

sleep.

But Cape May residents can avoid bears

and save the expense of a flight to Pond Inlet

and still be treated to the sight and sound

of Long-taileds in love. Just head over to

Townsend, Cape May or Hereford Inlet and

get an ear full.

A

clean house is a great way to start

the new year, so it’s no wonder so

many cultures incorporate cleaning

into their New Year’s celebrations.

In Portugal, it’s considered good luck

to start the new year with an empty clothes

hamper, which means New Year’s Eve is laundry

day. In China, sweeping on the first day of

the new year is bad luck, so the house must be

clean before the calendar turns. After you rest

in a clean house for a few hours, you can think

about your resolutions for 2022.

You may resolve to help clean up your

town. Maybe you’re ready to “trashercise.”

Trashercise, or “plogging” is a combination

of exercising while picking up trash. Though

we all know kind souls who have been doing

this for years, it became trendy in Sweden in

2016, when concern about plastic pollution

encouraged Swedes to take action. “Plogging”

combines the Swedish words “plocka upp,”

for “picking up” with “jogga” for “jogging.”

Generally, you turn one of your regular outdoor

exercise sessions into a cleanup. One

The Activity Column

Catherine Dugan’s guide to getting out there... this week, cleanup the beach trash!

plogger advises a light jogging warm up to

scout for garbage, followed by a walk with

frequent squats to pick up the litter. She wears

gloves and carries a couple of trash bags,

which she deposits into municipal trash cans.

Though it may feel like you’re trying to

empty the ocean with a teaspoon, experts say

these clean ups can make a difference. Picking

up trash encourages you and others to be more

aware of what we create. And people who

participate in a group effort become ambassadors,

encouraging others to reduce single-use

plastics and be careful of where to dispose of

things like cigarette butts which may take a

decade to degrade. This chain reaction may

keep streets and beaches cleaner — healthier

for wildlife.

Americorps is sponsoring a New Year’s

cleanup on Sunset Beach, Sunday, January 2,

from 10am to 2pm providing buckets, gloves,

bags and pickers. Register online at www.

eventbrite.com/e/new-years-sunset-beachclean-up-tickets.

Wear closed shoes and

dress for the weather, including sunscreen.

If you’re going to do your own beach cleanup,

wear sturdy gloves and use a grabber to pick

up sharp objects like broken glass. Use your

kitchen tongs as a grabber and sterilize them

in your dishwasher later. If you plan to make

plogging a habit, consider making or buying a

special tool, like a long stick with a sharp pin

on the end. Don’t touch your face with your

gloves on. Wash your hands thoroughly when

done and pat yourself on the back.

The Answer Lady invites inquiries from

gentle readers on all manner of relationship

quandaries, matters of the

heart and ethics. If you’d like to send

a query, write to info@exitzero.us. Or,

simply sit back, enjoy a cup of coffee and contemplate

the wisdom herein.

Dear Answer Lady

A person has been bugging me for the

last month on Facebook about meeting

somewhere. Where would you suggest? He

wants to take me out on New Year’s Eve, but I

don’t do New Year’s Eve and I especially don’t

do it with someone I don’t know. With this

COVID scare I don’t know what would be open

after New Year’s because that’s when I told him

I’d meet up. Any suggestions? — Perplexed

Dear Perplexed

Why not make a luncheon date for New

Year’s Eve afternoon? There are several places

which are COVID sensitive and offer an

excellent menu or an excellent view. Fins, the

Mad Batter, the Blue Pig or the Lobster House.

This accomplishes several goals at once. You

The Answer Lady

Wise answers to perplexing questions

get to meet him in a public place, enjoy a meal

without the worry of New Year’s Eve revelers

breathing all over you and you can safely say,

“Yes, I did go out on a date and started the New

Year with a new slate. P.S. If you make the date

after the holiday — the suggestions would be

the same. Happy New Year!!

Dear Answer Lady

I started dating a man two years ago.

He soon started talking about marriage but

said we had to wait until he finished law

school, which he finished earlier this month.

Christmas has passed with no engagement

ring. I’m 33 and want to have children. I trusted

him and now feel I was lied to. I saw a letter on

his desk for a job offer in Chicago. He knows I

can’t relocate because of my job, my parents

and my love of Cape May. I am so hurt. I’m

waiting for him to bring this all up but so far —

crickets. What should I do? — Devastated

Dear Devastated

He may be weighing his decision and is

having a hard time himself. Your silence is fearbased.

Fear that it might be over or that your

chance has passed. He might have changed his

mind but isn’t it time you brought all this out

into the open? Whatever his personal goals

are, you clearly have some of your own and

this needs to be openly discussed. Don’t allow

yourself to put your fate in someone else’s

hands. A quiet dinner at the Sunset Supper

Club is an opportunity to tell him how you feel

and ask what his intentions are. Knowing the

truth is better than shirking in the dark.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

Three beautiful dogs from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 609-465-8923

STORM is a sweet and gentle big girl who

came to the shelter when her family moved

and couldn't take her along. She is 95 pounds

of happiness. Storm gets a lot of exercise in

the yard, and she has excellent leash skills. She

is friendly to any human that comes near her,

and does well with other dogs, cats and children.

She will make a wonderful family pet.

SNOWBALL is a seven-year-old girl who

loves attention. So much so that she needs a

home where she will be the only pet. Snowball

loves running around the yard and playing

fetch, but her favorite thing to do is go on

a brisk walk. She has excellent leash skills and

will stay close to her human. Snowball would

do best in a quiet, adult home.

ROCKY is a mature boy who came to the

shelter when his family could no longer care

for him. He is a sweet and mellow dog who is

easy to harness and loves long walks. Rocky's

leash skills are excellent, and he mostly enjoys

attention from his humans. According to his

last owner, he gets along with children, cats

and love frequent trips to the dog park.
