I’m not so much a Christmas hater as I am a hater of Christmas lights. And it’s not so much that I hate Christmas lights as I hate people who go completely apeshit overboard on Christmas lights. It’s Christmas, not fucking Vegas.
I guess that’s not too bad either. I don’t mind holiday light displays too much if the owners take them down (or at least turn them off) before Valentine’s Day.
The blob in the the middle of the picture is faux cake that says “Happy Birthday Jesus!” on it. Great. So now this is Christmas AND a fucking birthday party too? I hate birthday parties more than I hate Christmas. It’s hard enough to find and buy a present for my asshole relatives, now I have to worry about What Would Jesus (really) Want for his birthday? Think of the pressure. You need to get something that the Son of God already doesn’t have (a Kohls gift card only works if Christ needs new sheets or some scented candles). And birthday cards are a bitch too. One of those black themed “Over the Hill” cards probably would be in bad taste. I could keep it classy with something like “two millenniums is the new one millennium, my Lord”. or a Maxine card. Everyone loves those, right?

Students at an Ottawa university are pulling out of a Canada-wide fundraiser that provides close to $1 million a year for cystic fibrosis research and treatment, arguing that the disease “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” — something experts say is untrue.

I’m thankful for Sweden (and knee high boots)
I’m thankful for old ladies (and beards)
I’m thankful for accessories (and mondegreens and Janet thanks you for the sample )
(and I’m thankful for parentheses)

Fact: In order to cook and eat a turkey, you have to kill it first. Shocking, I know. So what’s the problem with Sarah Palin standing in front of someone butchering turkeys. Here’s the vid:
Yeah, it is not the best backdrop for an interview but it reinforces the point that people are too far removed from their food. That’s why I love MSNBC’s “Breaking News” running commentary at the bottom of the screen.
GOV. SARAH PALIN PARDONS TURKEY IN WASILLA
MSNBC is all about the facts, bitches!
TURKEYS DIE AS GOVERNOR PALIN TAKES QUESTIONS FROM MEDIA
Let’s hope one of them was Keith Olbermann
GOV. SARAH PALIN KEEPS TALKING WHILE TURKEYS GET SLAUGHTERED BEHIND HER
What? You want her to have a moment of silence?
TURKEY KILLING FOWLS PALIN NEWS CONFERENCE
Ugh. News puns suck.
GOV. PALIN APPARENTLY OBLIVIOUS TO TURKEY CARNAGE OVER HER SHOULDER
GOV. PALIN NOT REALIZING THE INCONGRUITY OF HER WORDS VERSUS HER BACKDROP
This I don’t get. Where’s the incongruity? She wants to eat a turkey.

ESTP – The Doers
The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
Great. Now time for my nap.
