guess what i'm giving everyone for christmas...

The Day of Judgement
from the center panel of the
Memling Triptych in Gdańsk.
come judgement day, i'm pretty sure i'll be headed straight to hell for that one.  and for trying so dang hard to get out of christmas this year. only to be over ruled, i might add.

[phone call]
"are you serious? do you have a reason?"
"i've got half a dozen reasons."

before i even got to the 3rd one i was interrupted and the rest was never spoken.

as rodney daingerfield used to say, "i don't get no respect."

sometimes i hate being loved.

nothing personal, but...
bah fucking humbug.


this is unrelated, but it brought a much needed smile to my face. it's highly addictive, loads of fun...and very civilized, if you ask me.

and if you watch the 2nd video here you'll see my xmas offering at exactly the 2:57-2:58 mark.
(and if you watch the 1st video, tell me if you were as surprised as i was that there was no adolescent-boy-breast-poking involved.)

merry christmas, y'all

Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis
ante diem rationis.

I know its hard to join in with jollity when you'd rather pull the covers over your head and sleep till spring, but this is a good thing you can do for the people who love you - they wouldn't enjoy Christmas half so much without you. I'm even glad my mum has changed her mind about having Christmas dinner with us - I would have felt awful thinking of her at home on her own on Christmas day. Sending you a hug and hoping life gets lighter soon x

Back a few years ago, I felt kinda the same way about my Birthday. The ExMrs bulletholes asked what I wanted to do with my kids.
i said "I don't care nuthin bout my Birthday!!!"
She looked at me like i was nuts and says "Maybe you don't, but your kids do"

Yeah, I'd say I was a dick.
Christmas can be tough though, Cornbread, just remember its not ALL about you.
