HAPPY FESTIVUS!


Oh happy day, kiddos! That special-ist of days is here. That most nondenominational of holiday celebrations.




In the spirit of Festivus, it looks like we won't have snow for Christmas or New Years Eve...


In an office Feat of Strength, I actually picked up my phone today. Additionally, I: checked email, unlocked my office door, and added a ream of paper to the printer. Oh yeah. Bask in my masculinity

Totally made myself hungry with all that high impact working out. I plan on preparing the traditional Festivus meal of meatloaf served on a bed of lettuce. What are your Festivus dining plans? Oh damn, I almost forgot.









Reno: You are too damn upbeat
JSierra: You are too damn absent
Dumb Old Girl: You are too damn quiet
TTM: You are too damn good at recapping. My abs hurt from laughing
Sandy: You are too damn good at predicting the winner of DWTS right out of the gate
Veronica: You are too damn good at actually knowing the names of characters on shows
Becks: Your time zone differential STILL fcuks with my head
Violet: Bakes Christmas pudding too damn good!
Steamy: You confuse me with your mystic ruminations too damn good


Happy Festivus, you chatty mofos!

    6. And I don't even like BIC. But my boss gave me a bottle so I suppose I'd best put it to some use.

      Delete
    7. You guys take this Irish/English hate to the extremes. I bet TTM would gladly help you kill that bottle. Canadians are like the UN. They love everyone.

    3. I think I'd better have a coffee before I air my grievances

    4. Sounds like maybe I need to as well then

  6. TTM - The amount you accomplish in a day puts me to shame. You stop it right now. Don't make me get out the shame bell.

    Charlie - Your snacky food talk makes me hongray. Stop talking about salt and vinegar kettle chips.

    Reno - Your positivity makes me realise what a grumpy old troll I am. Except your hate of Bieber, this gives me life!

    Becks - Your sausage is way too adorable. Make him stop before I buy a puppy.

    Violet - Your cricket team is better than ours. But our rugby team is better than yours, so there!

    1. I will not mention the 4 dozen cinnamon buns I am currently baking, so as to not be challenged to a feat of strength

  13. Do you guys remember that gossip website we checked out for a littlest bit: Evil Beet Gossip? It's shut down for good!

    1. Yes, as of the 15th. I remember KW saying it used to be really popular with a solid readership then they got rid of a writer named Emily and everything imploded. And now it's completely done. If I were another certain website, I'd be feeling that bullet whistle by

      Delete
    2. I remember that site! Seems like we lost a few good one this year.

    3. They ARE good TTM. Like a party in your mouth, and all of your taste buds are invited

      Delete
    4. That sounds kinda awesome too! Does anyone else have Christmas Eve traditions?

      Delete
    5. I give my kids jammies and a new Christmas ornament every Christmas Eve. I use a Rapido pen to write the year in an unobtrusive place. When they leave the house, they can take their ornaments with them

    6. I'm watching Die Hard tonight. Christmas Eve tradition!

      And yes, it IS a Christmas movie, okay?

    9. big big big xmas eve dinner here (not here actually, at my mum's) with the infamous chocolate chilli game. followed by trying to find beds for 13 people. followed by trying to keep six children asleep until an adult friendly time. Good times.

    10. 4 hours til Santy comes here V. Santy might need a few more drinks first though

      Delete
    11. Here's hoping the 'big man' floats through xmas day in a gin filled haze. It's quite likely that by the time he reaches the Northern hemisphere gin will be on the agenda (in particular my SIL's home made sloe gin). Good luck V. May the force be with you. God speed.etc etc.

    12. We do secret Santa in our family. Then my mom forces us to watch The Santa Clause which I DESPISE after a lifetime of being forced to watch it. If ya want your kids to love something, tell them they can't watch it. SC is the most dreaded part of Christmas Eve.

    13. We used to watch The Ref but made do with Rudolf this year since the kiddos are just that little bit too young for The Ref

  15. Happy Festivus! This year I will make an effort to be more present. And write those recaps, time keeps slipping away from me. My favorite part of festivus is the eating! Yum yum yum. Happy hot winter, y'all!

    BTW, fuck this 72°F nonsense. I came to DC to escape the heat!
