One More Day

Less than, actually.

I just got back from the super-wallymart for a couple of gallons of milk, and I damn near killed 12 annoying people, 3 shopping carts, and an overhead music system....

...'in a pear tree
'. (<---there's my Christmas Spirit, drink it up, y'all.)

Justifiable homicide, I'm certain.

It's also a rough time if you tend to have a news channel on somewhat regularly, as I do. Like now, for instance, just tippity-tappiting away on my laptop, I can almost guarantee hearing the following upon flipping through the channels...

"...the world's most perfectly cut diamon-"


"... [orgasmosigh & flashing ring] he went to Jarro-"


"... so come to America's number one jewelry sto-"


"[woman, sitting on bench] ...but I don't remember this spot. [man, kneeling] you will..."


"... every 'kiss' begins with-"


Almost makes me long for ole Billy and whatever crap he's selling nowadays, as weird as that sounds... well, not quite.

Granted those commercials can be a wee bit...trying...but what happened to the bright-eyed optimism of the bedroom furniture post?

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sgt., and all of God's blessings of peace, joy, and some special treats from Santa.

I drove through the local Wallymart parking lot this afternoon. When the parking lot is half full, the store is almost unbearable.

The parking lot was 90% full. Since my wife doesn't want me to openly carry a firearm, I left.

Merry Christmas Murphy. You're my favorite Grinch. ;)

HEB was good. No one ran me & Eldest over. Only 27 shopping carts left in the middle of the aisle. Random person with an IBC name tag gave the girl a lollipop. The cashier was pleasant & said Merry Christmas.

I stayed the hell away from Wal-Mart.

Feliz Navidad.

I had to do out briefly yesterday for a couple of last-minute things, but got all my wrapping done and was mostly able to relax - finally.

Merry Christmas, Murph.

WEll, let's take a reccy around MY place...

(the 12 days of Christmas at OUR house this year)

12 bills that were paid
11 limbs a hanging
10 neighbors gawking
9 houses burning
8 chainsaws humming
7 shelter opening
6 cars a skidding
5 frozen squirrels
4 firemen sliding
3 power lines down
2 leaks in the basement
...And 1 much LIGHTER bank account NOW!

Sounds about right.
(Oh, and the wife's CHK ENGINE light is "festive")

Can't WAIT for NEXT!

Have a Merry, everyone!
