I’m trying to talk my mother into having Christmas at our house this year.
She’s being stubborn.
I’m offering to do this, because my mom works like a dog and deserves to be able to take it easy, relax and ENJOY the holidays for a change.
I have the perfect plan – Dude and I will drive over the 24th and pick up the gifts and her AWESOME stockings (she fills them each year with tons of useful / fun things and everyone always looks forward to them every year), and the food so then on Christmas day, all mom and dad have to do is get in their car and come over.
No mess. No stress.
I’m thinking this is a good idea. And now that I’ve put it out on the Internet, MOM, you sort of HAVE to do it.
How do you make someone you love slow down and enjoy the holidays and NOT be the hostess for a change?
Kevin compares pot roast and cooked carrots to candy.
Who even does that?!
Such an odd man. It’s a good thing I LIKE odd or we’d be in a pickle.
We have a winter storm coming through tonight (and thank God we’re on the tip of this storm because I hear it’s been dumping A FOOT OF SNOW on some folks! EEK!) and OMG, my head.
I can always tell when the weather is about to change, my sinuses go nuts and I’m like this all day:
But seriously, go away headache. Or I’ll start whimpering like Robert Gibbs when he’s forced to explain the actions of our idiot government..
OH … PWNED!
I witnessed two accidents yesterday. One was while I was waiting for the boys, the other was while Dude and I were out getting the pot roast that we ate tonight.
I was sitting there, waiting for the boys after school, when I noticed this red car, full of kids and none of them wearing their seat belts, drive erratically through the parking lot that I was waiting in. They do this every day. They parallel park on the road and then use the parking lot to turn around. And like every other student driver, they are goofing off and showing off for their peers.
They were trying to turn left. But there were several cars parked alongside the street, so it was hard to see what was coming in both directions.
They pulled out and though the car coming tried to swerve and miss them, the red car, instead of braking, sped up as if to try and make it and they crashed. Head on. Car parts went everywhere and though I don’t think anyone was hurt, I can’t be sure because like I said, none of the kids (and this includes the kid that they hit) were wearing seat belts.
Dude and I ran across the second accident shortly after it happened. It was another T-bone accident right in the middle of a busy intersection and it looked bad.
Oh, I forgot, the kids and I ran across another accident the day before yesterday. We didn’t see it happen, but it must have happened shortly before we got there because there wasn’t a cop car to be seen and smoke was pouring out the guy’s motor.
What do you want to bet that other than the kid accident, the others were on their cell phones when it happened?
Hang up and drive, people.
Did you hear that Global Warming is a hoax? Is anyone surprised by this information? I’m not.
And did you also hear that the EPA has deemed C02 harmful to humans? And does anyone else find this colossal news, that was released shortly before the climate summit in Copenhagen, incredibly stupid?
The media is a bird feeder, we are the birds and we are gorging ourselves on what they want to feed us.
Seriously. It’s time to wake up.
You must, must, MUST, do this. Your children’s eyes will bug out and they will love you forever.

You have to admit, this guy’s Christmas decoration is hilarious:
But yeah, after more than one person tried to use the ladder to rescue “the man” and other countless cars drove off the road looking at “the man” in horror, the owner had to take it down.
And yes, these are the kinds of things going through my mind at the moment.
What can I say, I’m a deep thinker.
