…This sounds like a horrid way to spend Christmas Eve.

Seriously?

Most Americans view Christmas as a time to consider such lofty things as peace on earth and good will toward men.

Not MSNBC’s Chris Matthews who actually devoted his entire Christmas Eve Hardball show to mercilessly attacking eleven conservatives with assistance from a panel of some of the most conservative-hating liberals in the nation…

Seriously?  Is this what happens when you don’t have anybody to go home to?  I spent Christmas Eve bringing up the gifts while my wife planted the candy canes, and if I was thinking about politics for any significant amount of time then I don’t remember it.  And I can’t say that I’m worse off for that.

Merry Christmas!

…This is pretty much the start of Christmas for the family: the in-laws arrive tomorrow, and it all doesn’t really end for us until the Sunday after Christmas.  So if I appear grouchy, harried, incoherent, or just plain zoned… I am, and this is why.

Happy holidays for everyone so inclined to celebrate them.

PS: Posting will be – I dunno.  Could be light.  Could be heavy, as a form of distraction. Guess we’ll find out!

Merry Christmas Day!

…And, dang, the toys are light years ahead of the ones that were around when I was a kid.

I think that I’ll be on a holiday posting schedule…

…for pretty much the rest of the year. Between Christmas activities and running around, it seems least SAN-destroying. And, with any luck, nothing will happen that will require me to change that policy.

Just realized something.

If I snapped at anybody yesterday, it was probably because I was putting toys together for two small children, one of which has just really gotten what this Christmas thing is all about – and who has apparently developed a sudden phobia of talking dolls, although that may have been the homemade chocolate chip cookies talking.  Now I understand why I associate certain cuss words with Christmas; my father apparently liked to save the worst ones for special occasions.

So.  Sorry?

…Christmas stuff, actually.

You know: get the tree assembled, go buy the wreath, have the kids melt down, go out shopping and hide in the basement level of the slightly pretentious pub in the highly pretentious arts-and-crafts retail center*.  Christmas is in two weeks, after all: gotta get some of this stuff done**.  Quite a bit left to do, in fact.

*Because, slightly pretentious or no, the beer was both local and tasty.

**Yes.  You should go do some shopping.

Report: WH in full CYA/BDS mode over Christmas attack.

A quick survey of priorities:

  • In 2001, the American government’s response to a successful series of terrorist attacks was to look outwards to see who to hit for this*.
  • In 2009, the American government’s response to an only-because-we-got-lucky unsuccessful terrorist attack was to look inwards to see who to blame for this. (H/T: Nice Deb)

I think that, all things considered, I prefer the first approach.

*To somewhat purify the Onion’s point.

Everybody have a good Christmas?

I’m pleased with mine, particularly dinner. We had a roast, and a surprisingly appropriate pinot noir. Plus, Order of the Stick compilations that I didn’t have! All in all: low-key, but nice.

It’s Christmastime.

I liked this.

Particularly the use of not-cool musical instruments. Perfect.
