Yeah. I suck at blogging lately. So what? I’d love to say I’ve been too busy to blog, but that’d be a lie. I’ve just been slacking supremely.

I have a little more Christmas shopping to do (I don’t do much, believe me!), and all my Christmas cards are ready to drop in the mailbox. We don’t have any Christmas parties on the agenda this year so far, and for that I am thankful. The hustle and bustle of this time of year is enough. I kinda wish someone would hit me in the forehead with a ball peen hammer – just hard enough to put me out until the 2nd of January.

Connect This
Shelley kicked my fucking ass at Connect Four the other day. Yeah, I know. It’s a kid’s game, but it’s addicting. She hasn’t gloated too much about it, but I suspect she wants to, and will. I want a rematch!

Oh…Everyone congratulate my chum Shell for getting a raise! She hasn’t got it yet, but it’s in the works. The only downside of it is that she’ll be moving to the other side of the office, and I’ll be forced to resort to my own devices to maintain my sanity. Plus she’ll be traveling more. So it’s a little bittersweet for me.

How exactly does one tactfully and gently say “congratulations” and “thanks for deserting me” to someone me without sounding like a selfish fuck? ;-) Just kidding Shell! You fucking rock, and deserve it!

I don’t get frothy over the topic of “Chrismtas vs. “Holiday” because there are more important things in life than that - like trying to remember what kind of toilet paper I usualy buy.

But…this is rich…

Some braniac (hopefully fired by now) at Lowe’s decided to market Christmas trees this year as “Family Trees”. Read it on Snopes. It’s true.

I think someone at Lowe’s finally figured out that calling a Christmas tree a Family tree makes about as much sense as calling a Menorah a candledealy; or calling a dog a cat.

Found this vid while "Stumbling" in my Firefox browser. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but I do.

Ha! I finally got to be first.
If the rest of have to deal with the hustle and bustle of the season, so do you. I guess I'm getting off pretty easy this year though - I hope.
Congrats on the raise Shelly!
Oh and did anyone else see on the DIG blog where the mayors son wrote Carlos for calling his dad a dumb ass. Awesome. Way to go dude!

It is wrong to call them Christmas trees. How could we forget about and disrespect the great tradition of the Kwanzaa Tree?

CONGRATULATIONS SHELLY Sorry she is abandoning you buddy. ;)

Woozie,What is a Kwanza Tree? Do you have a photo of one to share? And please educate me bout the history of a Kwanza Tree;)

Merry Christmas, Pookie. I miss knowing what's going on in your life!

Sheila said...

I'll knock you out with a ball peen hammer if you will do the same for me - YOU GET TO GO FIRST! Ha Ha!

Good job Shelley! Congrats to you on the raise!

I feel your pain Carlos on the "Connect Four" failure. We think we have Tic Tac Toe mastered..........then much to our surprise - no.

The only fights I get into over Christmas is fighting over who gets to drink most of the beer....

The Kwanzaa Tree, also known as the Ugmababamababab Klicky Klacky, has a storied tradition in the African continent.

beginning in 1997, some monkeys in the jungle got a hold of Christmas lights and decorated a tree near their homes. Several tribesmen witnessed this event, and decided to copy the newly born tradition of the monkeys, now their brothers of the jungle.

And so the Kwanzaa Tree was born!

Bunny~n~Early: Yay! You're first. I did see the mayor's son's posting. Kinda baffling how he was nice on minute, telling me everyone has their opinions; and then pretty ugly the next. Oh well. He must be one of those Republicans who beleive in freedom of speech only if they agree with it.

Wooz: Fuck. How could I be so, well, stupid?

Nay: Of anyone, I though you'd like the video Nay!

Jules: Where the fuck have you been hiding!?

Sheila: Deal!

FlyinFox: I seldom drink beer any more, but hey - if fightin's part of your holiday ritual, more power to ya ;-)
