Tracking Santa etc.

I asked my nieces if they tracked Santa online and they said yes.  I always do, too.   I will see them tomorrow, and I hope that they all got what they asked for.  One probably won’t, but that’s the pet dilemma that I just don’t want to get into.  All of my shopping is done, including buying sweet potatoes.  The fried slices were such a hit at Thanksgiving, I decided to do it again.  I spent less this year due more to a lack of imagination and the vet bill than anything else.

I know this is nothing new, but I am amazed at the brazenness of right wing radio.  Dennis Praeger has  — wait!! this just in —

I was going to write about this, but now it’s just funny.  Earlier today, Bush pardoned a guy who — wait for it — had enticed poor people of color into buying money-trap homes in New York.  His penalty was pretty light — 5 months — and he was young enough to start over (30 something) but his dad made a contribution to the RNC this past April and voila!  The boy is cleared.  But NOW, Bush has “rescinded” that there pardon.  Dumbass.

Back to Praeger, he’s gone all Dr. Laura, e.i. women should just do what their husbands want, blah blah blah.

Michael Medved does to Christmas what he did to Saint Ronnie’s biography, and then Hugh Hewitt brings on Mark Steyn to trash Obama, but it’s the HOLIDAYS!!!! No matter, the current scandal is worse than Whitewater and a BIG DEAL.

One last thing — Twitter — it’s just ink and if the Republicans think they can save the part by knowing when someone is in the bathroom, that’s just sad — which is what I had intended to  to title this post when it started out.  But it got better.

    Hope you had a great visit with the family and got some great loot to boot!

    I’m at my sister’s place, whining about the dial up. The big news is my stepdaughter called from Iraq! They had a gift exchange, stockings and a tree (thanks to one of her co-worker’s mom) and best of all she should be back in the US very shortly -the best gift of all.

    Best wishes for a great 2009

  2. It was a good day. I always enjoy my nieces — the littlest one finaly pooped out around 5 this evening — she had been up for hours and no nap for two days. She’s three and at he age that she gets it all and gets very excited.

    The adults were all rather subdued in gifts, but the girls made out like bandits.

    I hope your Christmas was good, too. That’s very good news about your step daughter — I hope she stays safe.

    Best to you and yours and like you, 2009 looks like a difficult, but very good year.

    I am hopeful.

    Take care!
