What I Want For X-Mas /Winter Solstice /Saturnalia

Well, I don’t celebrate Christmas or the season, also known as WinterSolstice /Saturnalia /Kwanzaa /Hannukah /Yuletide /GreedyShoppingandGettingPresentsTime. DON’T get me going on Christmas!! I’ll explode! :explode: It’s a pagan holiday with Catholic clothes on. :rage: I don’t hate it as much as I hate Halloween, but I do still hate it. I refuse to do the tree thing, the mistletoe thing, or the going-broke-to-buy-everyone-presents thing.

Ooo but I will receive a present if given to me, heehee. :santasmile:

Like this t-shirt. Isn’t it SUPERB! I think it’s perfect for someone like me!

iudude

I also love this.

Both items are from Despair.com, that phenomenal company who should give me some kind of affiliate contract (since I mention them so often). They sell SOOOO much good stuff, perfect for crabbies and crabby-wanna bees! They don’t have any medical equipment (although my doctor’s office could sure use some of their demotivational posters– there’s one secretary there is just TOO durn cheery! The other one is always horribly nasty and crabby, so she’s fine). Well, ANYWAY… Despair.com has calendars, mugs, posters, t-shirts, etc. This is NOT a sponsored post for them, either– although I wish it was! I should be getting a hefty cut of their online profit, since so many of my crabby-infected readers go there and buy that stuff.

But, dang, I just love that t-shirt. GOTTA get me one, and wear it to WalMart. Think anyone will understand it? :huh:

Why is Amazon’s Shipping So Slow?

What’s happened to Amazon.com, huh? Used to be, I could order something, and BAM my book would be here in a week, sometimes 5 days later. Not too shabby!
But HOLY COW, I’ve been waiting in the wings for over two weeks, and my books are not even in my state yet! :grump:

It seems to take FOREVER– a WHOLE WEEK, almost!– to even get the product out of Amazon’s warehouse anymore!

I ordered my books on November 13th, so you can’t blame “the holidays” for the shipping delay. Unless, of course, Amazon was just swamped with orders over Halloween. :-p

Photobucket

But look! My books weren’t even shipped out of the warehouse until November 18th– and even then, I wonder if they were really shipped out, because the Postal Service doesn’t even mention receiving anything until November 24th!

Photobucket

So it took Amazon a whopping TWELVE DAYS to get my three paperback books (which Amazon said were in stock!) OUT of their warehouse to the local post office?!
The estimated time of delivery is November 28th– over two weeks from my order. And guess what? It’s November 28th today, and books still aren’t here! :grump:

Yeah, I opted for “free shipping.” I shouldn’t have been such a cheapskate. Because Thanksgiving has come and gone, and my books haven’t come in yet… *sigh*

I Hate Halloween

It’s almost here: the night responsible citizens and property owners sit up all night, guns in one hand and phones in the other, preparing for that one night of “mischief” where the worst of the population is allowed to wreak havoc, destroy property, and worship satan. All while law enforcement and other mindless citizens chant, “Oh well, kids will be kids…”

I HATE HALLOWEEN. Hate it. I’ve hated it ever since I was 14 or so. What a crappy “holiday.” I can’t believe that people actually recognize this day, let alone “celebrate” it!

Don’t give me that crap that this is “all for the kids” and “it’s only about dressing up.”

NO WAY!

Let me ask you something, you who say this– if my town celebrated Hitler’s birthday, what would you say to that? Oh, we don’t bake a cake that says “Happy Birthday, Hitler” on it, no… but we dress up, pass out holiday cards, and have games and pass out goodies. We carve zucchinis with little arms in the raised “heil” position; some of us dress up with little black mustaches, too, ALLL in GOOOOD fun– knowing in the backs of our minds that it’s Hitler’s special day and it’s because of him that we set aside this day… but we celebrate guilt-free, and what we’re doing is OKAY, because ALL we’re doing is HAVING FUN and DRESSING UP! That’s what makes it OK, isn’t it?? Well, isn’t it?!?!

So now do you see how stupid that kind of reasoning is?

Halloween has disgusting pagan roots, and anyone whose brain hasn’t been washed by commercialism knows this. You can cover up the crappy celebration with decorations, treats, costumes, goodies, and apple-bobbings….. but we all know what it’s about. In the United States, Halloween was anathema to our godly forefathers… until the Celts brought the crap over in the late 1800s. Once the businessmen got ahold of the idea that they could sellsellsell all sorts of useless trash for this day and this day only, *BANG* it became a nationwide, celebrated “holiday!” There was no stopping it! And what’s absolutely gut-wrenching is that Christians actually take part in it, too! :wassat:

In other countries, holidays have spiritual significance underlying the physical celebration (for good or bad). America is unique in that the only thing that makes us tick is MONEY and SHOPPING. Thus, Halloween is a-OK. It’s *just* a dress-up day Let the shopping celebrations begin!

BAH.

HUMBUG.

I’m staying home, with my Mace. I’m also thinking of renting a rabid, nasty German Shepherd and setting him lose in my yard, to bite the prowlers who dare to paper my trees. I won’t get in trouble for it! No one ever gets in trouble on Halloween! After all, like the police department says every year, “these things will happen on a night like this.”

P.S. Does anyone happen to remember that October 31 is Reformation Day? Does anyone even know what that IS?! If not, well, WHY NOT, huh??? How come Reformation Day isn’t celebrated in public schools, but satanic Halloween is, huh???

BAH! :rage:

How Could I Miss This?!?!

How on EARTH could I have missed my Favorite Holiday of the Year?!?!
:rage:
I’m really peeved with myself.
In case YOU missed it, too (commiserate with me, my friend!), it was National Grouch Day!! Yes! I cannot BELIEVE I missed it! I was so wrapped up in learning about identity theft protection (I have had my personal information stolen TWICE I’ll have you know) that it entirely slipped my mind until today. GAH!! Earlier this month, I checked to make sure exactly WHAT day it was this year… and made a mental note to remember.

Well, we all know what I did wrong, now, don’t we?

Gah! I love National Grouch Day! I had all these party plans, too, like serving only black and green jelly beans to guests… handing out used Kleenexes for party favors… inviting only friends who were sick…. I am really, really steamed I missed it. Why didn’t any of you remember to remind me?!

Oh well. It can’t be helped now. But you’d better believe I’m not going to forget next year! Sheesh– they should have this holiday twice a year: once for the real holiday, and again as a double whammy for those of us who forget things! By the time the second holiday rolls around, you’d BETTER BELIEVE it’ll be a grouchy day!

So Happy National Grouch Day, people. Belated. :nyah:

Global Forgiveness Day

Well well! According to Margie and Edna, today is Global Forgiveness Day! I’m no party-pooper– I’d just love to join in and party. So in commemoration of Global Forgiveness Day, I’d like to say: I forgive you, World! Even though you do the stupidest things on a constant basis without any regard for posterity! You stupid world! Gah! :explode:

I’m glad I got that off my chest. Yes, I do feel better now. It’s a beautiful thing to forgive your globe. :ermm:

So where’s the champagne?

July 4th: About Everything But Independence!

Did you know that the word “holiday” comes from the term “holy day”? A day that is honored and sanctified above others? July 4th is Independence Day, a “holy day” to us, granted from our holy rollers, the Founding Fathers. They didn’t see it as a time for us lazy, beer-burping baseball spectators to rah-rah the home team or run to grab all the sales at the stores (as wonderful as that is).

Independence Day is about our independence from Great Britain! It’s NOT about immigration! Hello?!

I grew up in the 70s and 80s… and all those stupid TV shows and newscasts were about how wonderful our country is because of all the immigrants we got, and we celebrate it on July 4th, feverishly reciting The New Colossus over and over again. Holy cow, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. July 4th has NOTHING to do with immigration, especially the profligate and unbridled immigration our country saw during the 1800s and late 1990s.

“[Is] rapid population [growth] by as great importations of foreigners as possible… founded in good policy?… They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. These principles, with their language, they will transmit to their children. In proportion to their number, they will share with us the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its direction, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass… If they come of themselves, they are entitled to all the rights of citizenship: but I doubt the expediency of inviting them by extraordinary encouragements.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.VIII, 1782. ME 2:118

So while that “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” stuff makes for good poetry, a nation that has not a stable immigration policy with ENFORCED borders isn’t really defined as a nation! And the United States of America does not owe its greatness to the gazilions of immigrants that flooded here from other countries!

P.S. Before you start up on your brainwashed blabber about how xenophobic I sound, please be aware that THIS IS REALITY. So get a life. I’m not xenophobic.

Independence Day is about our independence from Great Britain! It’s NOT about veterans! Nowadays I keep hearing how “We wouldn’t be free without G.I. Joe.” Ummm… sorry, that’s not true. G.I. Joe didn’t go to Normandy or Korea or Vietnam or Kuwait or Iraq to set us free. G.I. Joe went to set Europe, South Korea, South Vietnam, Kuwait, and Iraq free. Oh by the way, the government did a pretty crappy job managing the wars as well as managing the G.I. Joes’ pensions and medical care. :-p Enough said.

Independence Day is about “No King but Jesus.” Yes, a shocker that may come to the brainwashed public school masses, where you learned that the Americans rebelled because our tea was being taxed, and because the patriots were free-thinkers who wanted to be secular humanists and live in a socialist utopia! Ha ha! Have I got an education for you– WRONG.

P.S. Before you start up on your brainwashed blabber about how George Washington was a Deist and etc, please be aware that I am a HISTORY SCHOLAR. Please don’t give me quotes from Thomas Fleming, George Wood, and the other revisionists. Go read the writings of Washington (you can start here), Hamilton, Franklin, Witherspoon, Rush, Webster, and Jay, like I have. You JUST may get an education!

Yeah, I’m feisty today. But there’s something about Independence Day that gets my goat. I have that Patriot blood surging through my veins, and by golly, I hate commie coup d’ etats.

So go out there and eat your hot dog and drink your beer. But remember that it was those God-fearing, Bible-thumpin’, iron-backboned, liberty-loving folks who made it so you could eat and drink in peace and liberty.
