December 26 notes
For the most part Christmas was great this year. I don't feel like discussing the positives, however, but instead want to say, "yeah I know Grandpa can't hear the television if it isn't this loud but maybe he could go without and I would retain some of my hearing."
The kids under 5 were the only thing louder than the television. I have no idea how parents deal with that noise nor do I understand how they manage to stay sane having to devote so much attention to someone else regardless of what they want to do.
And why is Santa said to deliver coal to bad children? Wouldn't that have been valuable back in olden days. Thank you so much Timmy. Because you were a bad boy this year we will be able to have heat this year. Next year if you war good and don't get polio, I think Jolly Old Saint Nick just might bring you that shiny red bicycle you wanted so much this year.
UPDATE: "Christ Converts to Islam" is my favorite Onion story ever.
Somebody needs to be informed of the Divinity of George C.W. Bush.
Perhaps Iran needs to wage a war without on end against earthquakes and those that support earthquakes. Or maybe not. I'm sure this earthquake will lead to democracy and freedom and so the loss of these lives was, without a doubt, worth it. 7:41 a.m. 12/26/03
UPDATE #2: If "the terrorists" were to give up their desire for what I would term "spectacular" attacks and just focus on carnage, I suspect they could do a lot of damage with ease in the U.S. Just set off some type of bomb in a densely populated area. 11:51 a.m. 12/26/03
