I miss you guys! Let me know what’s happening in your world…I’ve been busy, but have thought about all my blogger friends often. Here’s an absolutely hilarious video to add humor to your day, hope it works
(Trust me, watch the whole thing.)
All credit is to EpicYolo and the Bad Lip Reading company…Happy Bloggin’ Ya’ll!
I normally don’t post twice in one day, but I can’t hold my tongue (or typing finger) on this one. I’m having a marathon Christmas movie night and on comes ‘Christmas with the Kranks’. It had been a few years since I’d last seen this movie, so I thought why not? I’ll give it a try…worst move of this season so far. It’s awful…stressful…technical term – yucky.
If you haven’t yet seen it, please save yourself the trip down depressing lane. Although there are some famous names at the top of the credits, the torture the Kranks face when the decision is made to skip Christmas is absurdly unrealistic and honestly, if all this happened to me, I believe I’d move. Someone please tell the Kranks there are better neighborhoods well…EVERYWHERE!!
Here is the info, but only so you know what to avoid. You’re welcome!! Lol.
Otherwise, I guess my favorite Christmas movie is still ‘The Grinch’ or ‘Elf’. How about you???
Happy Merry Bloggin’ ya’ll!!!
And here’s one more Christmas song from the group who will make you laugh…definitely a way to de-stress during the holidays. Enjoy!!

If you haven’t heard the group Straight No Chasers, this is where you should start. A strictly a Capello group yet you would think there was a band right behind the singers. Fantastic, and possibly the best version of 12 days that I’ve ever heard. They’ve taken what is normally a somewhat boring Christmas tradition and turned it into a very different and hilarious song. Listen to it all the way through to get full value and enjoy!!!

Straight No Chaser performs their version of “12 Days”….
Happy Merry Bloggin’ Ya’ll!!!!
I received this in an email today (so I can’t take credit for any of this) and COULD. NOT. STOP. LAUGHING. It may be because I deal with contracts every single day of my existence, but either way, the humor and possible reality of this email is hilarious. In fact, it’s so funny it’s almost sad. There’s a hint of today’s youth involved, so if this is where we are headed…well, I’ll let you read it and decide.
Either way though, I say GO SANTA, GO SANTA, WITH YOUR BAD SELF, GO SANTA!!
How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the elves, is fine. I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X-Box 360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas. I hope you remember that come Christmas Day.
Thank you for you letter. Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves are all fine and thank you for asking about them. Santa is a little worried all the time you spend playing video games and texting. Santa wouldn’t want you to get fat. Since you have indeed been a good boy, I think I’ll bring you something you can go outside and play with.*
Seeing that I have fulfilled the “naughty vs. Nice” contract, set by you I might add, I feel confident that you can see your way clear to granting me what I have asked for. I certainly wouldn’t want to turn this joyous season into one of litigation. Also, don’t you think that a jibe at my weight coming from an overweight man who goes out once a year is a bit trite?
While I have acknowledged you have met the “nice” criteria, need I remind you that your Christmas list is a request and in no way is it a guarantee of services provided. Should you wish to pursue legal action, well that is your right. Please know, however, that my attorney’s have been on retainer ever since the Burgermeister Meisterburger incident and will be more than happy to take you on in open court. Additionally, the exercise I alluded to will not only improve your health, but also improve your social skills and potentially help clear up a complexion that looks like the bottom of the Burger King fry bin most days.
Very Truly Yours,
Now look here Fat Man,
I told you what I want and I expect you to bring it. I was attempting to be polite about this but you brought my looks and my friends into this. Now you just be disrespecting me. I’m about to tweet my boys and we’re gonna be waiting for your fat ass and I’m taking my game console, my game, my phone, and whatever else I want. WHAT EVER I WANT, MAN!
Listen Pizza Face,
Seriously??? You think a dude that breaks into every house in the world on one night and never gets caught sweats a skinny G-banger wannabe? “He sees you when you’re sleeping; He knows when you’re awake”. Sound familiar, genius? You know what kind of resources I have at my disposal. I got your shit wired, Jack. I go all around the world and see ways to hurt people that if I described them right now, you’d throw up your Totino’s pizza roll all over the carpet of your mom’s basement. You’re not getting what you asked for, but I’m still stopping by your crib to stomp a mud hole in you’re ass and then walk it dry. Chew on that, Petunia.
Bring me whatever you see fit. I’ll appreciate anything.
That’s what I thought you little bastard.
HAPPY BLOGGIN’ YA’LL!!!
In case I don’t say it enough…….I appreciate each and every one of you, so this post is ALL ABOUT YOU!!
YES, YOU!!! In a day where people don’t take the time to say thank you…I SAY THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND DEDICATION TO THIS LIL’ OL’ BLOG!
Happy Bloggin’ Ya’ll!!
I’m not saying this will work, but if you know of a family going through hard times, please write a little bit about them and their situation here…
Maybe we can use this blog as a matchmaker…not like a dating site, of course, but maybe there is someone near to your friends who would like to send a helping hand…
When I get a few different stories, I’ll highlight them and let the world know that these are people who could use a little assistance to get them through the holidays.
Got someone in mind?? Let us know and we’ll try to bring some Christmas cheer!!
When I learned of the awful tragedy in Connecticut on Friday morning, my heart felt like it was literally tearing into tiny pieces. I’m sure we all feel and felt the same exact heartache, whether we are parents or not, whether we are teachers or not, whether we are supporters of the right to bear arms…or not. This is an absolute nightmare for every single person directly related, or indirectly affected. As the confusion began to clear into several small details, fragments of the truth, I thought of this blog and all of you, my sweet friends…but I could not yet force myself to sit and write. Feeling as if possibly putting the words into sentences would somehow negate the hope that it was all a dream…a nightmare, that we could wake up from, recover from, and still hug and love these children…watch them grow…help them learn…learn from them….and thank God for each additional second granted in their company. But no…it was not a dream. My lack of cementing the events into a published forum had no bearing on the reality, the horror, the pain of the truth. I wish it did.
There are no words…
To cover my condolences…
To cover my sympathy…
To cover my grief…
To cover my love of 20 children and 6 adults (heroes, if you will) I have never even met…
To cover my confusion…
To cover my anger…
Yes, there it is. That’s the raw emotion that takes over when the tears have spilt and the confusion begins to clear. ANGER. Pure unadulterated anger.
If you recall, I posted a few weeks ago about another unnecessary death caused by someone who shouldn’t have been able to obtain a gun…“Children with Guns…It HAS to stop!”, but this latest horrific tragedy has brought to light something else that America should consider. It’s not gun control. Gun control, to me, would be ideal if the “control” part meant no guns AT ALL. But, reality is gun control means no guns in the hands of law abiding citizens. Thugs will always have the means to obtain weaponry. The gun control measures I’ve heard of will essentially reduce us all to being completely defenseless against bad people. That’s not what I want and not at all what I think we need. I would like tighter controls over who exactly gets a gun…a full and lengthy battery of tests comes to mind, but I also believe that should be done before procreation and we all know neither of those are possible…but again, the wrong people can buy weapons capable of destroying small cities from the back of a car parked in a dark alley, so preventing the good people from being able to defend themselves in this circumstance will not do.
What we need, and is obvious from this latest tragedy, is more mental health assistance. According to an article by Shaun Hensley, “Mental Health Nuts are ‘National Crisis’, Report Finds”, published here on March 09, 2011, from 2009 through 2011, two-thirds of states slashed funding for mental health services.
Another chilling reference point comes after the shooting rampage at an Aurora, Colorado movie theatre in July 2012. This article, written by Donna Cooper, is titled “Cuts to Mental Health Services Could Lead to More Spree Killings” and goes on to describe the same budget cuts and report referenced above, as well as an extremely scary statistic…“According to National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in four adults—approximately 57.7 million—experience a mental health disorder in a given year.”
Now, before you yell at me for taking this time to highlight America’s issues instead of showing respect for the victims and their families, know this…WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STOP THESE KILLING SPREES IF WE DON’T ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS. And this, among other ways, is how I am showing my respect and devotion to those who have been affected. LET THEM NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN……LET THEM LEAD THE WAY TO SAVING OTHERS!!
Please…share with me your thoughts. How are you remembering and paying tribute to the beautiful souls affected Friday? Can we, as a Nation, do anything to prevent this from happening again?
