Happy Festivus

DSC_0015

I've got eight or nine grocery bags sitting on the kitchen floor. One has a box of rapidly defrosting waffles in it. Must run and unpack. 

I had such good intentions for a productive day of blog post. I've got loads of material stored up. Including one on wrapping presents with brown paper and some multi-colored masking tape that I found at Pearl Paint. I love that store, so much that I almost begged the  heavily tattooed and pierced cashier for a job there. Maybe after the break. 

Well, all will have to wait until next week. While I drinking eggnog, I'll figure out a new design and concept for the blog. 

So, if you celebrate, then have a Merry Christmas. Drink and eat lots. If you don't, then enjoy the lovely Chinese food and empty movie theaters. See y'all next week.

  1. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you.
    It’s our fourth day of Hannukah, the day in which we’ve agreed the children will give rather than get a gift.
    The littlest one doesn’t really get the concept, but we’re working on him. The older one felt bad last week, that she wasn’t getting presents for her parents (not a Hannukah tradition, as far as I know) and made presents for us.

  2. I got a lot of problems with you people! And now, you’re gonna hear about it.
    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to Laura and family and the internet.

  3. Pearl Paint! I grew up about 3 blocks from one! (OMG, it doesn’t exist there any more! Argh!)
    As my son would say, Happy Christmas and Merry New Year, everyone!

  4. We celebrated Festivus for the second year in a row. It was great fun and we invited another family over this year. We kept it simple, one grievance about each family member. It couldn’t be cruel, had to be true and should be funny. If you didn’t want to do that, then you could state a grievance with the world. My favorite from one of the college girls “The people at Starbucks are too friendly and try too hard with the small talk.”
    We found that out of the 8 children, only one was brave enough to issue a grievance about their mom. That grievance- “We’re all too scared of you to bitch about you.” All the kids were ready to slam it to their dads though. “You yell at the TV and connect politics to everything” was the most common theme.
    It was a great time, we will do it every year.

  5. “We found that out of the 8 children, only one was brave enough to issue a grievance about their mom.”
    It’s not a good idea to mess with somebody who controls your food, clothing, shelter and when you’ll get your first cell phone.
