Yay! It's done!

A sweet, sugary, delicious, mouth-watering 364 days from the next annual blasphemous vomiting of colossally annoying human tricks!

Time to break out the tunes, booze and bong!

Hope Santa left scantily-clad grooviness underneath your dead or plastic plant!

I am so glad that there is no chance of turning on the TV and seeing that annoying kid droning on about his desire for a red rider bb gun. With no hyperbole, I HATE that movie.
Glad that holiday is behind us.

Fuck! I didn't get a bong for Christmas!

Nor a one hitter. Bastards. And they have the nerve to say they love me.

I do like a Christmas story but mostly for the nostalgic times not the whining of Randy the tic.

We don't need a one hitter or bong. We just need to find that Salvia Divinorum that is hidden deep in the garden and then have a chaw.

Santa didn't deliver what I wanted...

It's over, its over, it's OVER!!

Ot, what's this I hear about Clevland maybe making the playoff if the Titan's lose to Indianapolis?

Looks like Dungy won't play Petyon much.

Have you put in your call to Tony yet?

In the words of Tiny Tim, Merry F'n X-mas!

Wow...what a bunch of grumps!

I had a great time talking to my daughter in New Hampshire via video cam which helped take away that feeling of being separated for the first time at Christmas. My other daughter in PA sent me a fantastic slide show with video and still pictures of the kids opening their presents and decorating Christmas cookies, and it had the coolest Christmas music in the background! That was the best gift of brought me right into their living room that day. I couldn't believe how fast she got that put together and sent to me. We all enjoyed watching it after Christmas dinner.

The funniest thing was looking at the amazement on my 80 year old mom and 95 year old mother-in-law while they were able to talk to and see my daughter in NH with the video cam. My mom said it was "something out of Flash Gordon". They were also flabbergasted by the slide show and how quickly we could see it.

All in wasn't too bad of a day, minus a few glitches.

LBR, gasp! Blasphemy! Yeah, they play the hell out of it, but come on, it's so much better than It's a Vomit-Inducing Life.

dcup, if I have any of my stash left over, I'll send it on down.

mathman, agreed. Great flick, but man, don't you just want to let Randy stay on the ground after he falls down? And watch it, The Warriors On Drugs might be reading.

frederick, heh heh, what a wonderful invention. God Bless Entrepreneurs!

Poli, that is indeed the case. If the Titans win, they're in based on having a better record against common opponents. Come on, Tony, play those regulars!

kip, I'll drink to that!

ME, why yes, yes we are. ;-) Speaking only for myself, I prefer the more intimate holidays. The one year when the weather was, er, frightful, it was just the kids, my wife and I. That was a lot of fun. I just don't enjoy gatherings, and there are a lot of wingnuts in my family.

But that's what's cool about technology, is that when you want to connect, you can, more than ever. Not the same as being there, but, almost. :)

randal- I told my husband that next year I want to go to New Hampshire and spend Christmas with my daughter there. We can't stay in her place because it's really really small, but we can stay at a nice bed and breakfast or inn nearby. If we leave early enough and drive out, I won't have to deal with flying and all the crap that goes with that. I don't mind driving, in fact, I enjoy road trips. It would also save me the hassle of shipping her packages, just load 'em up in the car!

Randal Graves said...

You guys really should do that. That would be a hell of a haul, but if you don't mind the driving, why not, plus as you said, you'll save on the insane shipping costs and not have to worry about lugging junk on and off the plane, getting a rental, etc, etc.

And if you want to borrow any of my albums for the cruise, just let me know. ;-)

I'm with LBR... that movie irritates me to no end. I recently dated someone who told me that was his favorite Christmas movie and I think that fact alone ripped any respect away that I may have had for him!! Shit, is it any wonder I'm single?! ? :-)

La Belette Rouge said...

B was so right to stop dating a guy who favored this film. If I were still in the man market, it would be on my questionnaire of must-knows before commitment. Very wise, B!!!

I would gladly watch "It's a wonderful life" over and over ad naseum rather than sitting through this cinematic horror show just once. I know what hell looks like and that annoying kid and his lament for the BB gun are very much involved.

Randal Graves said...

b and LBR, I'm shocked and appalled at your close-mindedness! No, I am left completely speechless at your choice of that maudlin hunk of putrescent garbage over a quality film. I'm very, very disappointed and glad I'm off the market!

Of course, if any potential female lover type were to say the same thing about Immortal Beloved or Halloween, then the date would end right there.

Yes, I gleefully choose to overlook my hypocrisy. ;-)

We got an Eye Clops and that's all we need! Oh, and the number for Pizza Hut.

Yes, it's over. Although my I enjoy christmas almost as much as I did when I was a little girl, I rarely decorate. This would make me lazy. Bonjour laziness. Next year I'll be lazy in France.

Randal Graves said...

SWB, bah, Papa John's is better!

Colleen, another bah, nothing wrong with not decorating. Merely time wasted that could be spent doing something more productive. Like laying about on the couch channel surfing. And I imagine being lazy in France would be pretty cool.
