Friends Call Me Heatmiser...



Echo, I am in 100% agreement with the Year Without a Santa Claus pick. Of all those old Rankin/Bass puppet clay movie things, that one is a standout. I dig that Big Bad Voodoo Daddy did such a nice job covering this. Personally, I have felt like the Heatmiser the last couple of days as I have "taken ill" with the flu. At least I made it to El Vez. Anyone can ask Lulu, I could not stop laughing when the big blow up Santa and Snowman came out. It was like some sort of freakish silly mosh pit. I really want to make people mosh with Santa and Frosty before they enter my house. Now that would be fun.

We finally have our tree, although it was a somewhat pathetic trip as Sweetness had a fever and I had to run out of the store to get fresh air before I hurled. Not very ho-ho-hoey. The tree made it home and we managed to get it in the stand and then I collapsed into bed. I'm feeling much better today, so I think Christmas is officially underway again. This is one weird Christmas so far.

I have always loved the Miser brothers. Tonight there is a live action version of the show on one of the networks. It'll probably suck...but I'll be there watching...with a sinus infection feeling like shit and singing along...

whatever I touch...melts in my clutch!

I wanted to watch that, but I was vetoed by Bink and his gaming addiction and Monday Night Football. I figured it would suck, so I didn't try that hard. How was it?

It sucked....ass....

Are y'all feeling better over there??

I'm better today, thanks. Sweetness has the nasty bronchitis thing. How are you? I am always at risk for some pesky illness because I work with little kids. I knew I was doomed when BOTH of the twins that I work with got the flu. I'm in such close quarters with these kids in therapy that there's just no way to avoid it. Oh well. The only bonus points that the flu gets is that it is usually only 24 hours long.

I've got the creepy crud and it's not going away... sinus headaches and deadlines... what a combo!
