Like Bill Crosby Or David Letterson

I was flipping through the Best Buy flyer and got to the part with all the cheap knock off software.

I had to laugh and then feel a little sad - there are going to be some terribly sad children and some terribly confused Mothers when some kids open Guitar Master for PC on Christmas morning.

Forgive Me Internet For I Have Sinned

A few weeks ago one of my roommates lost their phone. It sucked, he looked everywhere for it, vigorously retraced his steps and nothing, no phone. So he took the opportunity that life handed him to get an iPhone. It's been quite the event in the house to have it here. He's been downloading new apps every night and shares with great enthusiasm the slick features of each one. As you can imagine, I have been a wee be jealous and coveting this sweet piece of technology. He got it on Saturday and it wasn't until last night that I finally broke down and asked if I could play with it. Mmm. When he said I could play it with, he told me he wasn't responsible for puting temptation in my hands. I told him if I was going to make an expensive Apple purchase it would be of a Macbook pro, preloaded with Final Cut.

Well Good For Me

So my time with the unnamed labour group has been up for a few weeks now. Unemployment has looked pretty good on me. I have been doing more: sleeping; knitting; Christmas card writing; Christmas present making; phone talking; visiting; watching of various DVDs and VHSs; cursing the snow and falling in love with Sack boy.

I have also been applying for some jobs. I got one. In the new year I'll be working for the YMCA here in London. They have hired me on in one specific department with a lot of chat about cross training me for a few other departments/programs that me and my zany skill set could help in. It looks pretty promising and fun. And after 3 months it comes with a free gym membership. Yeah!

Something I've Always Wondered (For The Past 2 Months)

I believe the song "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" works on an assumption. Until this year I hadn't really thought about this assumption. At first I thought the assumption was that a child had witnessed their mother in an adulterous act. Then it occurred to me that in some family traditions, Dad dresses up as Santa and brings the presents.

The good in me wants to work on the assumption that the song is about a couple in a loving married relationship, being caught sharing a bit of physical lovin' by the product of their relationship. But the pessimistic pragmatic in me says that Mum is a ho.

So what do you think -

Is "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" about a loving married relationship, or adulterous acts?
Love, love, love.
She's a ho, stone her.

It's A Sad, Sad Night

Tonight is the midnight breakfast at Redeemer. For the past 7 years I attended this event - both semesters. I feel sad I will miss bacon and breastfest tonight. This is truly the end of an era.

Things You Never Want To See

Sometimes it's quite disturbing to walk in on one of your roomies making a pattern for the knitted underwear she's going to make her uncle for Christmas. Cough.

A Milestone

This guy turns 25 today.

In case you're new around here, that's my little brother up there. Little brothers should not turn 25. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally enjoying the maturity (sisters, there is hope!), but still, little brothers should not turn 25.

I would like to point out that this particular little brother is a foreman (yup, he got 2 promotions this year) at the 2010 Olympic Bobsled/Luge/Skeleton track in Whistler, BC. Aside from that, he's a pretty good kid who calls his sister pretty regularly and has learned to ride (a snowboard) like he was born to it.

Happy Birthday Johnny, I love you.

(also, a very happy birthday to the L.Bo - Les, your commitment to fighting the results of sin is a constant conviction and encouragement to me, keep fighting the good fight!)

Here and There

Friday I am going to this with this.
Saturday I am going to this with this.

There is a Joni Mitchell quote that would apply here.
