Oh, vindication, O sweet truth

Ok, so I just read the most touching and amusing story I've read about the holiday season in many years.
It brought a twinkle to my eye and a chuckle to my belly.
I'd love to make a film short of this. A docudrama, if you will.
this is so beautiful


BAH XMESS, here's to blind consumerism of the masses

So I've got to say it, I'm sick of all this Xmess crap. I am a scrooge, a grinch and really bored with all the hype. I know many companies make all their money for the rest of the year in a few weeks or months from all this. Whatever.
I don't have the tradition instilled in me to get all blubbery when I see stupid nativity scenes, I don't start saliviting when I hear sleigh bells and I think the best thing ever made about Xmess was the "Nightmare Before..."
I'm bothered by the guilt associated with buying gifts for people, even relatives that you don't even like that much; I guess it's quite a fitting behavior for good little Christians though.

I like winter, and I even like the idea that you should be kind and giving to your fellow man, but that should be all the time, not just once a year, on a fake birthdate of some over-publicized dude who may or may not have walked around in the fertile crescent many many years ago.

As for most of the traditions that are perpetuated during the holiday season, most of them are much older than this whole "Christmas" thing, and that whole conversation is so trite I'm not even going to go into it. But if you want to read more, go Yule up your butt

So enough with my rant, below are some activities, info and just stuff for people who may or may not share my sentiments

*Holly Jolly My Ass*

"Have a holly jolly Christmas" my ass. The best time of the year?

I don't don't know if I'll survive all of this bloody "cheer".

"Have a holly jolly Christmas" songs like this fill me with fear.

And if this season is the best it gets, just shoot me dead right here.

"Have a holly jolly Christmas"....what is it to have a "holly" something? It sounds rather queer.

"Have a holly jolly Christmas" I took out my Walmart gun, and drank another beer

"Have a holly jolly Christmas", I went across the street, and shot my neighbor's plastic raindeer.

"Have a holly jolly Christmas", plays as I sit here in my cell.

The guard tells me to can it as I hollar "Christmastime can go to hell"

From my world

I wanted to share a few things I found this week that amused or interested or just scared me.
In honor of my birthday which was surely an amusing but scary day, 28 years ago:

Tis the Season

So this post is not only about how awesome December 15th is because it's my birthday, but also because I am finally putting a new post up AND I have finally figured out the whole fucking layout finally!

Have some cake!



I find this amusing because if I had been born a boy my parents WERE going to name me DALLAS!

(Refresh if picture doesn't show.)
Dallas Winston: Dally is the toughest one in the
greaser gang and never likes to follow the law.
He is 17 years old, hates most people, is cold
and bitter, and doesn't like to be told what to

Which Outsiders Character Are You?

Is that a compliment?

So, Tom just informed me that he won the red stapler award at work. They actually gave him a red swingline stapler!!
I think that a certificate to starbucks would have been nicer, or a trip to Ireland, or something.
I'm not sure if this is a good thing, actually. Wasn't Milton the one that got moved to the basement and burned the place down?


It's for my health, to my health

Ok, so, this article proves that I'm doing good. Sadly I'm not sure if I can be classified as a moderate drinker. Most days it's just one or two drinks, some days none, somedays one or two bottles of wine, so either way it balances out, and I'm healthier!

I still can't figure out the stupid link option.
