I just need to pay some bills; when I need something, I get it (which is why I need to pay some bills).
I want Christmas/Festivus/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa to just go away. Think Jim Carey as the Grinch.
I want all my relatives to get sick and stay home leaving Uncle Nash to his solitude; so's I can watch all the tackle football games and old movies I wanta, read for hours and hours on end - my fourth favorite thing to do, and eat mass quantities of ribs, Chinese food and ice-cream.
I don't want to get or give any presents, have to smile and shake hands with people I think are stookid and smell funny, talk too much about anything I don't want to hear about, and hold little babies who are imminently going to crap or pass water on my lap.
I don't want to hear or sing ANY Christmas Carols - none of them make any sense anyway, go to church and listen to a buncha kids try to sing about baby Jesus who I'm rather pissed off at right now, or have to shake hands with smiling fat people and eat green and red popcorn.
Holidays and Vacations are for resting and recuperation, and not for seeing how much activity we can all generate to amuse ourselves. Have you ever tried to not only select a restaurant for, get seated, and food ordered for 17 people?!? Well, let me tellya............................
However, Uncle Nash will be summarily foiled again, as he married and spawned females of our species, to whom this time of year is particularly important for renewing of family and friendly relationships, giving thanks for another year of relative health and happiness, and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth (where the heck is that place anyway?). The welcoming of our oldest and newest tribe members, preparation of all kinds of beast parts 'n veggies 'n, taters 'n 'Relish Trays', 'n pies, and Uncle Nash's home-made, hand-cranked ice cream, for which the kids argue and fight to get to turn the handle.
Finally, to exercise the one of the few measly gifts he possesses, the reading of Christmas and Bedtime stories for all the kids will fall to Uncle Nash - as his wife will have hidden and removed all the batteries from the TV remote controls.
I don't like New Year's much either.
Wow B. Tell us how you really feel.
I want prices to go down on electronics, to not get clothes that I won't wear, and a destruction of GT on Saturday.
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
Can't say I disagree with you Nash....except that the 4 year old is so excited I can't help but have some enthusiasm with her. There is still a little magic about christmas, you just have to be around the right age group to see it. As for the relatives, ads, etc.- yeah, go away.
Most of my diatribe is just pretend wind and tongue-in-cheek. I love the kids, as we have what seems about 50, all running around with their high pitched voices having a ball. After so many years in man-management, I can get them all organized into doing stuff by getting them to think everything is their idea. They turn the crank on the ice-cream maker, trim the tree, stuff the stockings, and take care of 'Papa", who pretends to not see so good, causing them to have to do all my chores (heh-heh) with a smile. For that they get stories and readings from me, trips to the Adventure Science Museum (we almost got kicked out last year for conduct unbecoming, as Uncle Nash failed to exert proper control on their stinkbutts, allowing them to terrorize the visitors). Chuck-E-Cheeze, and to see the fantastic Christmas lights and decorations at Opryland. If they're extra special bad, I'll even take them to a movie where I can sleep off gobbler beast sammiches.
The adults, well, they can raid my liquor cabinet, and get good and soused. Last year, I opened my bedroom door, to find one of my 60 year old cousins, having 'relations' with a lady other than his wife. If I'd had my iphone with me at the time, I'd have recorded him with his derriere going faster than a demented fiddler's elbow complete with sound effects. Here comes Santa Claus, Here comes ................!
Damn, always good for a laugh.
It'll be hard after new Year's. LOL
Anyone else want to chime in on this? Or perhaps what you think Santa will bring your kids?
I'm already finding it's tough to come up with stuff for the second child. They are the same gender, and we still have everything of Charlotte's.
I typically buy what I need/want but my parents are forcing me to give them a few ideas for a few gifts. For some reason they still think they need to get me stuff. My Sonicare (electric toothbrush) died a month or two ago and instead of going out and buying one I told them I needed a new one which they said they would get. Hopefully they are getting me one cause they are awesome.
I would just like to get some gift cards to barnes & noble, best buy but I will most likely get gifts that i dont give a crap about or dont want or will even use
I want these......my line of work a comfortable pair of shoes goes a LONG way.......
Shop Under Armour for Men's UA Valsetz 7 Tactical Boots in our Mens Non-Cleated department. Free shipping is available in US.
We agree on this one, I haven't celebrated a holiday since I was really young... maybe 8 or 9
Christmas is just day with very little traffic for me
