Lol, whoops.

I think it's "god awful" because of what it's become, a two month long consumerist self-fisting. I don't get all uppity atheist about it, that's not where my hatred of it comes from (more friends and fam, less Amazon Prime).

Also, G-pops is at the moment alive and well enough. And tomorrow I'll be bellied up to the table with him listening to all his old stories I've heard 10,000 times before, and it will be awesome.

Dark Cloud not intended. This one just slipped out.

Merry Xmas to all, and a Festivus for the rest of us.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

I realized I never saw The Santa Clause and
will watch it tonight. I like Tim Allen, and
it got pretty good reviews.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Just read "Twas the night before christmas" to the little one in her pajamas. Putting her down for the night and Santa has to get busy wrapping get presents.

Wake up early open presents. At that point my responsibilities are done. The next few hours are all about eating Amish food and casting a line off the dock to see whom is biting. A lazy day will be had.

Ah, remembering when you were a kid......

"Why is this present put together wrong?"
"Santa had too many highballs last night...................."

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the day!

Happy Holidays to all who celebrate other days!

I don't believe in the thing that begins in October or earlier...that part of this season drives me nuts.

Happy Holidays


Beat me to it!

A cashier at the grocery store yesterday said Merry Christmas as I was leaving. I replied "I'm Jewish," (I'm not Jewish, I just wanted to see how she'd react). She said "Well then, Happy Hanukkah!"

Now I'm wondering what she would have said if I told her I was an atheist...

Some people just want to be insulted.

Have a happy freaking day and get over it. People wishing you any kind of happiness...even if the wrong holiday for you...is a good thing.

Life must suck for people who feel a need to be insulted over everything. They can brag about all their success, but there is some kind of unhappiness that they just can't get away from...

Happy WhatevertheHeckYouCelebrate Day/Week/Month!!!

Yes. Happy Christmas is saying 'hey, I celebrate this holiday where my culture wishes for peace, love and goodness to all, I'd like to share those good thoughts with you regardless'.

So Happy Christmas. Peace, love and good things to all.

Tomorrow, the same except for the Dallas Cowboys. They can have an off day.
