ACLU, Bite Me

Missie and I are going to be as busy as the rest of you this week, with family and baking and kids home from school. We're taking a bit of a blog vacation, and we'll be back December 29 with fresh cover snark to ring in the New Year. I can't believe it will soon be 2007. Remember when we all wanted riot guns for the sure societal meltdown after Y2K? And let me tell you, the Holiday iceberg has struck our ship, and she is leaking money all over the darn place. It's like:

Huge big-box bargain store who will go to Machiavellian lengths to ensure they won't pay their employees more than $7.00 an hour even though they will rake in an obscene amount of money: 1

Struggling parents who are trying to teach the kids about the true spirit of Christmas but still be the cool mom and dad who manage to give the insanely expensive (insert MUST HAVE OR WILL DIE object here) so the child's peers will not laugh, ridicule, heap scorn upon, or throw darts at said child: 0

And notice I just said the forbidden word. Christmas. Yes, frightened wussy airport and township lawyers, I said CHRISTMAS. Loudly. Proudly. I'm going even further-

A Christmas Tree! Flagrantly displayed! HA!

The PC police will not silence me. They cannot stop me. I will say, and say again, Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, everyone, and thanks for a great year of comments and group-snarkiness.

Those of you who are having a nice quiet family holiday at home with your immediate family (read: ROBYN), pray for those of us who will be having MANY MANY RELATIVES COMING TO STAY AT OUR VERY SMALL HOUSES FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME, INCLUDING SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE BRAND NEW TO THE FAMILY AND NO ONE REALLY KNOWS YET BUT WILL STILL BE STAYING IN THE VERY SMALL HOME!!! Not that any of that is happening to me, just sayin that we should keep others in our prayers, is all.

Yeah, and nix on the quiet family at home thing. We're going to the parents-in-law, but hosted by the siblings-in-law, because their heat went out so they couldn't have it at their house. Any way you look at it, I'm still going to be stuck with the dishes.
