'Twas three nights before Christmas and all through the office,
everyone was swearing, because the company scheduled,
a major project before a holiday weekend
Sorry for the nonexistent rhyme scheme. My corporate overlords aren't helping the ol' muse today. Anyway....
Gus Van Sant: drunk driver Still, I can't imagine that he called anyone "sugar tits."Looking for $100 ideas? Millions of them? You can find them over here at MoHDI.I wonder how long it will take them to turn these into condos.If you were born between 1975 and 1983, you may have fond memories of this and not even know it.Now even Disney has declared war on the holiest and jolliest of holidays. If Fox News is to be believed, the Baby Jesus just can't get a break these days (thanks go out to Pete for passing along this link).But I think the Smurfs are on his side. Or completely neutral. Their holiday celebration seems pretty non-secular. Honestly, they might swing either way in the ongoing War on Christmas Everyone else is linking to this so I guess it means I have to do the same.Well, this was inevitable.I'm a fan of his Halloween special but Garfield also had a Christmas one at some point in the '80s. Hmmm, you learn something new every day.Simon Sez Santa is back this year and he's even more surly than the '05 model
Not to end this on a sad note but it's a shame that the Alpenrose family decided not to bring back "Christmas in Dairyville" this year. The festival was an annual tradition going back decades. Unfortunately, they made the tough decision to pull the plug this year because of low attendance. I have a lot of warm/fuzzy childhood memories of heading over to the dairy with family to watch cartoons in the opera house and visit Santa. Here's hoping it makes a comeback in 2007. If not, I'm happy to say we headed over there one last time in 2005. If you're unfamiliar or in the mood for a walk down memory lane, click here for a Flickr gallery.
