Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Christmas Already??!!

Holy crap and jingle bells! It is seriously almost Christmas! Yes that's right I said Christmas. For those of you who want me to say happy holidays... Suck it! Seriously I grew up with Santa Clause and Rudolph if you celebrate any other holiday I ain't mad at you but by all means don't pee on my parade. I like Bing Crosby, Karen Carpenter and Natalie Cole singing my Christmas carols and further more I LOVE having a tree in my house! How it all ties into the birth of Christ who knows really the same way chocolate eggs and a giant rabbit are the symbol for when he rises from the grave I guess. The bottom line here is I do like Christmas and all it's shiny lights, presents, stress, alcoholism with friends and family, $10 Yankee swap gifts, ugly sweaters and terrible ties, the opportunity to refresh my sock and underwear drawer, opening 1 gift Christmas Eve and the rest the following morning and getting completely sick of the family in your home by 4pm until the next big holiday.

Yes Christmas is here and I have been a slack bastard when it comes to writing here in this blog. In my defense I didn't have a computer for almost a week because some viruses where found on my hard drive from only God knows what internet porn site were visited for the past 2 years. Then there is the stress of having to find the time and energy to find the perfect gift and the wrapping and parties and the list of excuses could go on and on...

I had every intention of doing a "12 Cocktails of Christmas" theme for the better part of the month but again that just didn't happen and much like my high school and college career I am now down to the final days before the big day of judgement. Was I naughty or nice? And here I have to cram. So cram I will! With 4 day to go I will pack these next few days into ideas you can use for your Christmas or whatever big holiday feast you might have on December 25th.
