Random Stuff, Take 99

Happy Holidays!

A few pre-Christmas random notes before I head out of town again:

  • What’s with all the anti-Christmas hysteria? You hear all the conservative gasbags going on about how Christmas is under attack because people say “Happy Holidays”. Note to assorted windbags: Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve. Last time I checked, that’s four – count ‘em – four separate holidays. Therefore, if you say “Happy Holiday,” you’d look like a fool – there being four holidays and all. I looked it up: the plural of “holiday” is “holidays”. So here’s a suggestion – TONE DOWN THE FUCKING RHETORIC FOR ONCE! That way, we might take you seriously when you babble on about all the other made-up crap, like the liberal media, the war on terror and judicial activism.
  • Better yet -- how about not worrying about what Target, Wal Mart, K-Mart, S-Mart, Joe's Lamp Shack and Billy Bob's House of Knives does to acknowledge Christmas and just try making the season as pleasant as possible for you and those around you.
  • Lesson learned from writing the book – have an actual idea before starting. Paper-thin plots pretty much die by word 15,000. I’ll be at it again next year, though.
  • Charlie Brown Christmas? It still rocks – 40 years after it first aired.
  • Four days of little to no sleep = messed up sleep schedule. Messed-up sleep schedule + post-Vegas exhaustion = pre-Christmas cold.
  • I hate Kohl’s.
  • I also hate Christmas shopping. Next year, it’s all online, baby!
  • I still believe in Walt Jocketty, but I’m starting to get kind of nervous.
  • Don’t give suckers the benefit of the doubt. Odds are, they’re just as stupid as they look and act. (More on this later)
  • Have a safe and wonderful holiday, everyone. Enjoy the time with your friends and families.
