You're OK. I guess. :-P

Merry Christmas to all my Fark friends.

I think I must have been on the "naughty" list this year. If only i could remember the "naughty" part. *sigh* I'll kvetch in a more specific manner some time later this week, but in the meantime, I could use any spare juju that fell out of your stockings.

‘’ 2011-12-25 10:21:51 PM  
I hope you all had a great day and some time with those you love. You guys are great!

Join the club, Kevbo. My present is going to have to wait a couple more days. It's all good.
‘’ 2011-12-26 1:40:35 PM  
My stocking is going to have to wait...until next year. When the Mrs. will actually remember to fill one for me.

And a day of peace, good will towards our cat, will have to wait until our youngest stops attacking him with a stick.

And being able to actually worship at a Christmas service will have to wait until my kids stop climbing over the pews and running around the other worshippers screaming.

And that's just the icing on a crappy holiday. *sigh* I wouldn't kvetch here, but I have no other venue to vent without causing irreparable damage to my family/marriage/friendships/etc.

At least it's almost over. It can only get better from here, I'm guessing.
‘’ 2011-12-26 3:20:25 PM  
Sounds like one to remember, Dave. :-/ It'll get better. Someday.
‘’ 2011-12-26 3:23:07 PM  
I doesn't seem like it now, but you will look back on our kids' shenanigans and have a good chuckle.

/been there

Christmas madness. I have to try REAL hard to relax...And even then, it catches up. Some is self inflicted, some is unavoidable. Avoid what you can, and surf the rest.

*Big hug*

What happened to FESTIVUS?
‘’ 2011-12-27 10:24:27 AM  
It's for the rest of us.

It's not for me this year.

I'll have to learn how not to burn food for Christmas Eve dinner before the celebrating can begin.

And how to kindly and sensitively request of my children that they not physically hurt each other, whether or not they really want to play with the other's Christmas presents.

And how to cope when the Mrs. is always more upset with me for raising my voice even in the slightest than she is about the subject of my voice-raising (namely the yuletide combat occurring between children or the complete disruption of church services.)

And how not to explode inside when an in-law regurgitates whatever was on Fox News last week about how everything is the Democrats' fault (including tsunamis and the Black Plague), even when this in-law is fully aware that I worked in Congress for four years. For a Democrat.

And how to keep a cheery face on when I am made hours late for work before and after Christmas by immediate family members who can't allow me to leave until they've all taken showers & simultaneously can't be bothered to take said showers until I am already late for work.

*sigh* This is the point where someone from Seattle should bring the hammer down on me for having the audacity to vent about people who aren't here to defend themselves, and that if I really loved them I wouldn't ever visit this website. But I don't really have any other options that don't involve physically hurting myself. I apologize if I'm bringing everyone else's holiday spirits down: it can just be added to my heaping pile of holiday failures this year.

I'll shut up now.

Hanging a heavy bag in the garage has really helped me out with stress relief. Might be worth a shot.

Hanging a heavy bag in the car port might make the roof come down. :(

hazeleyedwolff: Hanging a heavy bag in the garage has really helped me out with stress relief. Might be worth a shot.

It's a thought, if you can avoid the police questioning.
‘’ 2011-12-28 12:21:59 PM  
Speaking of police questioning, the one big downer on the holiday is that my mom's car was stolen from her garage.

While she was home.

And the thieves left another car, full of other people's stolen loot, behind because it got stuck in the driveway. No idea if that car was stolen from someone else or not.
‘’ 2011-12-28 12:49:14 PM  
That's creepy and strange
‘’ 2011-12-28 2:05:27 PM  
yeah, but was the loot good stuff?

wasn't this a jetson's episode?
‘’ 2011-12-28 3:28:05 PM  

Mike: And the thieves left another car, full of other people's stolen loot, behind because it got stuck in the driveway.

How did they get her car out if theirs was in the driveway? Or did they pull hers out first and then pull theirs in? And if they're going to do that, why not pull it all the way in the carhole just for the lulz?
‘’ 2011-12-28 3:33:21 PM  
Depending on the relative values of the cars, she might have come out ahead, Mike. Merry Christmas!
‘’ 2011-12-28 3:37:10 PM  

Soup4Bonnie: How did they get her car out if theirs was in the driveway?

They pulled off the driveway into the grass and got stuck in the mud. (It's a farm)
‘’ 2011-12-28 5:22:54 PM  

Soup4Bonnie: carhole

I read that in Moe Sizlak's voice, and it was HILARIOUS. "You people and your fancy French 'garage'!"

If you ask me for f*cking help because you forgot your gmail password, don't argue with me about what you did or didn't do because clearly you didn't do what you thought you did.

Goddamn inlaws.

Ah, 'tis the season of Free Support.

And this is an email I get from a user this morning:

"Whats my chances of getting the two set up from programming since they are getting new, so I don't have to keep getting in and out of the Stel"

‘’ 2011-12-30 6:43:50 AM  

leftyblonde: I still have a myspace account?

With all your sparkly GIFs, this does not surprise me :)
‘’ 2011-12-30 6:49:35 AM  


I don't know, but I would answer "One in twelve", just to keep 'em guessing.
‘’ 2011-12-30 7:43:58 AM  
Doesn't matter what it means. Tell him to charm whack like stellar obelisk over the coatrack, and you'll get it done.

Or, possibly, it means that he'd like you to set up new accounts for the two new guys from programming, so he doesn't have to keep handholding them from his account.

Next time, run it through babelfish before asking, okay?
‘’ 2011-12-30 8:29:02 AM  
I asked him. His verbal clarification wasn't much better than his email, but what it boiled down to was: can I get a 2nd monitor for my PC?
‘’ 2011-12-30 8:41:47 AM  
That's like people I work for. I am a big short and to the point kind of person and not saying what you mean succinctly is a pet peeve of mine. I should probably get a different kind of pet.
‘’ 2011-12-30 8:43:40 AM  
I think this is more of a fundamental lack of English proficiency.
