Merry Christmas! [f] [k] [p] [h]

It's a day early, but what the hell. Merry Christmas everyone! And to make it somewhat more timely, Merry Christmas Eve! To all of you heathens, happy whatever-it-is-you-celebrate, Yule and the Solstice, or Hanukah, or Kwanzaa, or whatever the hell. Merry merry!

Most people have seen it by now, but some of you may enjoy tracking Santa on NORAD's radar:

Last we checked, he was flying west over China. Go Santa go!

I've got to wrap the kids presents today (I guess I've got until he hits the East Coast on the tracker to get them done :P ) and do other Christmassy sorts of things. I'm kinda tired (went out and had some fun last night, and fortunately I'm not one to suffer hangovers, but I didn't get much sleep either) so I don't know how spirited our day today will be, but tomorrow should be fun. For those of you who are easily amused and have nothing better to do, you can always try watching the WPIX Yule Log which will be running for 4 hours tomorrow morning. They're even broadcasting it in Hi-Def this year, for those of you who really want to see every detail of... a log... burning. I'm not sure if that's cool, or just plain weird.

Gift-wrapping

If I ever become President (or even Governor, I should go run in California), the first thing I'm going to do is outlaw oddly-sized, non-square-cornered boxes. All stuffed animals and other soft things will be required by law to be put in a box. A square-cornered box. All dvds will be required to come in exactly the same box. Same with cd's and computer games. Anyone attempting to sell any goods without first putting them in a square-cornered, even, flat, firm, and regularly-sized box will be shot on sight.

In other news, I just finished wrapping the Christmas presents.

Christmas Day things to do

Not sure how many people on my f-list know about The Lunch Club, but for all of those of you in the city tomorrow with no plans, you may want to check this out:

Looking for something to do on Christmas day? Come join The Lunch Club for our annual Christmas Day gathering for Chinese food & the Movies! We did it last year and it was a big hit :-) It's a Jewish tradition, but of course, all are welcome!
