What did you get? I got some jeans, some shirts, a fleece, a poker set, some undies and socks, a movie (Serenity), and a round trip to Atlanta. Not bad, nothing big, but I didn’t want anything big.
I’m trying a new blogging program, BlogJet. i think I like the layout better. I’m going to use this and find out how well the spell check works. If it does better than w.bloggar, then I’ll keep it.
I’ll update again tomorrow with details about the fun last night.
Christmas was fun. It was good to see all the family and have a good time. It was also nice to get out and play some paintball on the 24th. Everyone enjoys a game of paintball.
It’s always fun to hang out with the cousins. We had a ‘discussion’ about differences in age and dating someone.
the other side of the family, however, is different. There were two wheelchairs, an eighteen year old functioning at about two, and a guy who could barely walk at the diner table. Along with my immidiate family making up 2/3 of the combined IQ of ten people in the room. It was interesting. I did see my cousin Ian for the first time in a few years though. He’s doing well. I was glad to see he’s grown up and responsible. He had to leave thoug because his friend was having a baby.
I’ll update you on the rest of the holiday later.
Thanks for the card Mike, I feel special. I’ll be down in Philly, at Dre March 30th – April 1st. All you old Dre peeps, leave me a message or something and we can hang out one night or something.
This week I’m working almost 40 hours, 32 of which i’ve done already. Basically, I’ve been working a lot. This is the first day off since last Thursday. That’s six days in a row of work. Somewhere in between all that working I managed to do my christmas shopping. Granted it wasn’t too hard since I only had 3 things to get, but I still had to go get them, which is a task for me. The only catch is that my dad’s present won’t be here until the 29th. I’m going to print out a picture of it and wrap the picture in a box.
I should be wrapping the other gifts instead of sitting here writing this and listening to TWiT.
I made two more car drives, but for some reason wordpress is being a bitch about me uploading the files. Maybe I’ll try again today.
I was looking forward to another knee slapping episode of Family Guy. It was interrupted, however, by the monkey that runs this country.
Lets’ make some commentary on his speech as he’s talking.
First, he lightly touched on the whole “I was wrong” point. He should have said that two years ago. Then, maybe, his approval rating wouldn’t be so shitty and everyone hate him.
Right after he said he was wrong, he shot back with “terrorists are scary and trying to kill you” and “remember 9/11?” I don’t think a number exists for the amount of times that this administration has use the scare tactic.
Let’s talk about these elections in Iraq. Here’s my take: The elections will work for the first few years. the government will stabilize and people will generally be happy. Slowly, one party will rise, whether its the Shities, or the Sunnies, or whoever, I don’t know. After the party has gained enough power, they’ll be able to pass whatever crazy laws they wants and a dictatorship will rise again.
Bush, you have failed as a leader.
Thank God Fox started Family Guy at the beginning.
Guess who’s a new ‘reporter’ on the Daily Show? Sweet monkey love, yes, it’s Demetri Martin. He’s freakin’ hillarious.
I hope his career takes off now.
Have you seen the commercials for the McDonalds arch cards? They now have a gift card. I’m not going to discuss the giver or reciever of that card, but they deserve a mention. For a second, think about the type of person that would give a McDonald’s gift card to someone.
As the title indicates, I’m going to make some crazy prediction. Before I make my mark in history, lets look at what led up to this prediction.
Before McDonald’s introduced the arch card, they introduced a few other new things. They’re slowly been rolling out a whole line of ‘Select’ meals. The selects are supposed to be better quality meals. Also, with the introduction of the selects comes a new look. McDonald’s isn’t the red and gold tacky that it used to be. The scarlet shade of red they used to have plastered everywhere has been slowly been replaced with a darker, more maroon shade of red. Not only has the bright red been phased out, but their entire color scheme has changed. They’re not the bright, young company they once were. Now they use darker ‘adult’ colors, much like the bigger M&M’s.
Now, we also have a gift card that will keep us coming back to use it all. A gift card for a fast food restaurant? Seems unheard of.
Ok, I’ll give you the prediction now. I think that McDonald’s is making the transition from a fast food joint to half decent restaurant. They’ll still get you your food quickly, but, mainly, they’re trying to shed the ‘shitty food’ image. I’ll even say that someday, they may go as far as sit down service. Hey, they have to cater to their grossly obese clientele.
