I work 40+ hours a week and pay all my bills. I may be a bit cynical but I prefer to call it like I see it which is what I did. And I dont wear Aeropostale my jeans are ripped from actual work not as a fashion trend.

    Oh so your jeans are ripped? OK not Aeroprostate or whatever it's called, Hot Topic, different store same mall.


    Merry Christmas.

    Happy Christmas to all.  Holidays are what you choose to make them.  It's all how you look at it.

    Don't get bogged down in the whole christianity aspect of christmas as the religous undertones of christmas barely remain for most people now days. It's turned into more of a holiday to celeberate friends and family. Before Christmas there were similar holidays almost at the exact same time of year like the Roman winter solstice or the pagan winter festivals. Christmas has a mix of traditions at this point as well. There are customs and traditions that are pagan in origin, some christian ones and then whats considered secular ones. 


    At the end of the day whether you are religious or not what Christmas has become is a time of year to gather your loved ones together and celebrate. So kick back, don't be so serious and enjoy. 


    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

    Merry Christmas!


    Like the OP I looked on longingly at the atari and took every chance I could get to play.  After a lot of parents finally broke down and got me a game console.  I still remember the excitement as I unwrapped the box from under the Christmas tree and there it was....a Magnavox Odyssey.  It was not the first....but one of the most memorable WTF moments of my childhood.  I had never even heard of a Magnavox Odyssey.  In fact, there was only one kid in my entire school that ever had the Magnavox Odyssey, and he went on to become our towns notorious hammer murderer.  I'm sure it was just a cooincidence he had an Odyssey...

    Christmas is a joke. The whole theme is to celebrate being thankful for what you have and spreading joy. Somehow that got translated to people scrambling to get gifts which usually turn out to be something the receiver doesnt want. Everyone puts on a fake smile and acts like they care about other people. Maybe my family is just dysfunctional but you all know what I'm trying to say. So many ungrateful kids "I asked for a red sweatshirt not blue omg TAKE IT BACK" its ridiculous. Theres kids in other countries that juwt want to survive for christmas, or have a meal. USA needs to wake up as a country

    thats the spirit.  fight having a positive thought to the bitter end

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Oh and to the bah humbugs out there - we don't exchange gifts at all anymore, not even drawing names out of a hat - there again we knock ourselves out with the food we bring to the potluck.  It really is about spending time with people.


    We are planning a game filled weekend, none of it electronic.  When the big crowd gets together it will be Charades (can't wait to get our fussy old aunt to act out an octopus).  One of the kids came to town bearing 3 new games for us all to try out so I can't wait until work is over today.  I have all my shopping done until tomorrow when I pick up the food for the party so tonight will be pure board game heaven.


    hahaha..I love the mental image of a fussy old aunt acting out an octopus! I think that is one of the best images ever. Thank you and Happy Holidays to everyone!

    Do you want some cheese with that whine? :)
