Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Now Get The Fuck Out.

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Now Get The Fuck Out.

That may seem like a harsh title without any context.  It will probably still seem harsh even after I’ve given you some.  About 9 months ago my wife suggested that we host Christmas this year for our relatives.  I told her sure, yeah, why not?  Not because I really wanted to do it, but because I knew that all my relatives were scattered across two countries and this would NEVER happen.     Eleven of the relatives that were invited…

Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?

Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?

I was bored so I decided to type in the five W’s and How into a Google search field and see what it came up with for the first ten predictions of each one.  Then I figured I would put my own spin on them.  I don’t recommend using any of my verbiage for a term paper though.

Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday. What’s not to like? There is food, alcohol, and football. Those right there are three out of the four basic things needed to make this small cog a happy boy. The fourth one is sex, but really, sex is pretty much off the table after stuffing myself into a food coma. Oh yea, and being thankful for things. Of course, I am thankful for my family who is spread all across North America. From Virginia…
