Merry Christmas, Ya'll!

I just have to get better at adding stuff to this thing. Become Blogger Extraordinaire.

Hey--maybe that should be my New Year's Resolution! Then when I don't do it I won't feel that bad about it. . .

Merry Christmas! (I'm Christian, so I can say that)

Oh wow, I hope that doesn't offend anyone--I guess I should have said the more PC "Season's Greetings." But I always think that's kind of confusing--which season? I mean, if I said that and somebody reads this in April, then they'll think I mean "Happy Spring" but then they're gonna wonder why I'm celebrating spring. Whoa--then they'll think I'm like Pagan or something and man, would my mother ever be ticked off about that!

So, since I'm celebrating Christmas later today, I'll just say Merry Christmas. And then after that, I'll probably say something like Happy New Year--but, I'll say that because I really want everybody to have a happy new year and not because I'm trying to force my fervent hope that the 365 day period following December 31 is more prosperous and joyfilled for everyone. Hopefully that's not gonna be offensive.

Ho Ho Ho! (and I don't mean that to be offensive to any women with looser than normal morals.)

Starting Over

Oh, whatever will I do?

My absolute favorite reality tv show, Starting Over, has ended for this season! Now we're into reruns for the rest of the summer. Total bummer. I mean, TOTAL.

You know, there's nothing quite as self-affirming as watching real-life people be real-life miserable. And folks, I'm here to tell you, these women made me feel like the Queen of the World!

Any problem I had, they had it worse.

I HATE walking up steps. I'm too old to walk up steps. But poor Megg--claustrophia so bad she had panic attacks just thinking about going in an elevator! So, to help her out, well, I always take the elevator. You know, as a kind of karmic support system.

Then there was Candi, who wanted to be more in touch with her feminity. So, being the supportive viewer that I am, I bought lots of really pretty lingerie and make up and designer perfumes--again--that cosmic karmic support system.

I'm telling you--this is a great show.

So, I guess I just have to wait around until next season. . . or watch the summer re-runs and figure out more self-indulgent ways to be supportive to the troubled houseguests of the Starting Over house.
