Merry Christmas everyone
Merry Christmas. In the “no new is good news category” there are no reports this morning of a heavy-set man in red being shot and killed while trying to break into a house through the chimney.
The actual beginning of “White Christmas” is “The sun is shining, the grass is green, the orange and palm trees sway. There’s never been such a day. In Beverly Hills LA. But it’s December the 24th. And I’m longing to be up north.”. And a bunch of folks up north and in the midwest and east are calling bullsh*t
A passenger was tossed off an American Airlines flight yesterday after he flipped out when two flight attendants wished him Merry Christmas. Apparently after he first started screaming ” Not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
Guess someone is now on the naughty list.
Not that I am a “spare the rod, spoil the child” type, but it does strike me that these days too many parents view the “naughty” or “nice” Santa choice as overly stifling to their children’s spirit and creativity. #spoiledbrats
Great moment in parenting from Alex Kaseberg:
“Me last night: “We forgot to name the Christmas tree.”
(his teen daughter) Ann Caroline: “How about Tom Cruise?”
Ann Caroline: “Because it’s not straight.”
(Sniff) I am so proud.”
Wonder how many cheap parents are telling their kids that Santa got delayed by weather and air traffic control , and are waiting to buy all their presents at the after-Christmas sales?
Doug Fister posted a Starbucks gift card code for his twitter followers and told everyone to have a Christmas cup of coffee on him. Really nice of him. But now you KNOW baseball players are overpaid, if they can afford thousands of cups of Starbucks coffee.
Brad Pitt and Angelina’s daughter Shiloh now wants to go by the name “John.” What’s odder, that the girl wants a boy’s name? Or that a celebrity child wants a normal name.
Michael Sam said in an interview that closeted men in the league contacted him to give their gratitude and respect after he came out. Of course, if some of those other men, in the NFL and other leagues would follow, we’d be closer to this all being a non-story.
Finally, seriously, merry Christmas – or happy whatever you celebrate – to all my readers. You are the reason I write and I hope this blog has brightened your day or days over the year!
(And for the jokes you don’t think are funny or don’t agree with the politics, thank you for sticking with me. I think the world would be a better place if we all were a little better at civil disagreement.)
