The Day After

Well, it looks like we all made it through another holiday season and I can say that I am officially another year older. I hope your Christmas was jolly and merry. For many this should be the slowest workweek of the year as we prepare for New Year’s. We got Monday out of the way and got to open a few presents, so the week is off to a good start.

I had a few good story ideas for you today. I had a great post planned describing how the Slinky on stairs is like the state of our nation’s current housing market. Since the end of the year is near, I was going to write obituaries for all of the celebrities who passed away in 2006 that you may have never heard of and I thought I might break down the field of presidential hopefuls in any easy to understand way by comparing them to famous SNL sketches or your favorite cartoon characters.

I was also toying with writing about how I may have offended some very good friends of mine when I sent them a photo late Christmas Eve but I feared it may not cast me in the best light, so to speak. It was a picture of my new half-size lady leg lamp (from A Christmas Story) as it sat beautifully illuminated in my front window. In the excitement of putting the lamp up after my wife very reluctantly gave me the ok, I neglected to realize that I had put the provocative lamp next to a miniature nativity scene. That is until my friend pointed out that I had combined electric sex and the nativity on the same table. Oops. I should also mention that I forgot to notice I had placed the lamp next to Santa, who is every child’s favorite guy on Christmas Eve. I’d like to think that this just makes me a bad decorator, not a bad person. In my defense, I was just really, really excited to put my lamp in the window.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to write about any of that today. I now not only have to go return almost every gift I opened yesterday, but I also have to put in a few good hours of confession…

lol. I have a friend who owns the leg lamp too. She displays it proudly every xmas! I think that it goes perfectly with a peanuts nativity. Who is cast as baby jesus?

Well, I don't think you'll go to Hell for it. Maybe to Heck. It's sort of like Hell Lite. You know, fire and brimstone but you also get margaritas and cabana girls who'll slather burn cream on you.

Hey can you come over and redecorate my house? It looks like you have a very unique sense of style and I like that in a decorator.
