So true!
If Egg Nog is the best part of Christmas, I'm gonna have to go stand in line with those folk who only say Happy Holidays. Egg Nog is nasty.

Sounds like somebody needs to make you some with a little extra Nog in it.

Last Christmas,  I gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away. This year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to someone special.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't know that you can pass pregnancy around.  It isn't a virus... it's a baby.
Well it'd have half my DNA, sooo....

So apparently Bob the Tomato is posting on these forums now.

Looks like Frederica Mathewes-Green got to him!
Well since the fast just started for those of us on the Old Calendar, so I propose as this as the official Lenten season theme song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI9yvAx3uCQ

He said to her, "I'd like a cheeseburger
And I might like a milkshake as well"
She said to him, "I can't give you either"
He said, "Isn't this Burger Bell?"

She said," Yes it is but we're closed now
But we open tomorrow at 10"
He said, " I am extremely hungry
But I guess I can wait until then"

'Cause you're his cheeseburger
His yummy cheeseburger
He'll wait for yo-u, yeah
He will wait for yo-u

Oh, you are his cheeseburger
His tasty cheeseburger
He'll wait for yo-u
Oh, he will wait for you

He stayed at the drive-through till sunrise
He may have dozed off once or twice
When he spotted a billboard for Denny's
Bacon and Eggs for half price

How could he resist such an offer?
He really needed something to munch
Cheeseburger please do not get angry
(Don't get angry)
He'll eat and be back here for lunch

'Cause you're his cheeseburger
His precious cheeseburger
Be back for yo-u
He'll be back for yo-u

Won't be so long cheeseburger
Oh, lovely cheeseburger
Be back for yo-u
Oh, he'll be back for you

Because he loves you cheeseburger
With all his heart
And there ain't nothin' gonna tear
You tw-o apart

And if the world suddenly ran out of cheese
He would get down on his hands and knees
To see if someone accidentally dropped
Some cheese in the dirt

And he would wash it off for you
Wipe it off for you
Clean that dirty cheese off
Just for you

You are his cheeseburger

On a scale of one to 10, seven is the level of annoyance I feel when I hear the word "furbabies."

No.  Only damnatio memoriae.
What about the mankini?
If that's that bright green thing Borat wore, I think it's acceptable.

I apparently left a bunch of change in a trouser pocket as it went through the wash, and now dryer.

It's annoying as heck, but am I actually going to get up and stop the dryer to get the change out of it.......probably not.

Do they still put those president fellows on the coins? I seem to remember them from ages gone by.

Do they still put all the different states designs on the backs of quarters or is that over now. If so, did they just go back to the old eagle that used to be on there?

Just read that Scott Weiland, former lead singer of the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, died in Bloomington while on tour. So sad.

I'm going to bring in a Barbarazweig in a bit. First, I am of German extraction, second, I love St. Barbara and today is her feast (well, for us ecumenist New Calendarists). I hope my cherry tree has a suitable branch.

http://www.fisheaters.com/customsadvent2a.html

During her time in the tower, she kept a branch from a cherry tree which she watered with water from her cup. On the day of she was killed, the cherry branch she'd kept blossomed. From this comes "Barbarazweig," the custom of bringing branches into the house on December 4 to hopefully bloom on Christmas (some reserve the custom for the unmarried).
