Season’s greetings!  Cervezahombreroberto is still on furlough from the content mines, so you’re getting a very worn out mongoose handling the reins instead.  I have been hosting relatives since December 18th.  Mostly it’s been my wife’s parents, who arrived that day, but during the last few days I’ve also hosted my brother-in-law, his wife, and their three children.  On the 23rd my mother and her husband came by, followed by my sister, her husband, and their two boys.  Which meant that I was cooking for a total of fifteen people.  Hosting such a large group was my own fault; I’d bought a 21-pound turkey at Costco the week after Thanksgiving for $6.00 (i.e. one-half of one dfo-dollar) and needed to get rid of it, so I invited everyone over.  I’m still exhausted from entertaining so many people, but I’m also exhausted from managing the household during this time, which included a very major plumbing scare that has turned out to be a very minor repair, thankfully.  I also installed a microwave, which was no picnic, then combined two broken microwaves to produce a single working SUPERMICROWAVE.

I don’t think I’ll be getting much of a chance to watch sports tonight, but you will, so here’s what’s on tap for you:

  • NHL:
    • Everybody vs. Everybody Else, apparently.  Oh wait, no, that’s tomorrow.  Tonight it’s Nobody vs. Nobody Else.
  • NBA:
    • All the Teams that Didn’t Play Yesterday vs. All the Other Teams that Didn’t Play Yesterday
  • NCAA:
    • QUICK LANE BOWL (sorry about that Mrs. Kiffin)!
      • Minnesota vs. Georgia Tech – 5:15PM | ESPN
    • CHEEZ-IT BOWL!
      • Cal vs. TCU – 9:00PM | ESPN
    • Basketball
      • Teams with an aggregate record of 52-7 go up against teams with an aggregate record of 17-47.  Probably not a lot of excitement from this slate.

I hope your Christmas hangover isn’t too strong.  I’ll see you in the comment section for more griping.

Stupid sexy Boxer.

No shit. What I think was probably my last shot at a fulfilling long term romantic relationship seems to have died horribly tonight. And I don’t even know why.

I tried to talk to her about it. About why. Only made things worse.

I just don’t get it.

On the bright side, I can ride Space Mountain for like six straight days.

TCU’s cheerleaders are not too shabby.

This game sucks.
So does life in general.

Anyone know where to find discount Disney World or Epcot tix? I suddenly have to fill six days in Florida next week, the reservations for which are not refundable. So as depressing as it will be, I’m going anyway.

Are we SURE these teams are bowl eligible?

This game is an abomination and insult to the sport of footed ball.

NINE pickerceptions. NINE!

This game may go 7 OTs with no scores.

There’s an irony in the “first responders bowl” being on a delay

My girls (ages two and-and-half, and 15 months) are dancing to “Enter Sandman.” I feel like I’ve done good as a dad.

I’m staring at a painting of a rhinoceros wearing a bowtie and tophat smoking a cohiba. And I’m not high.

god: *creates wolf* you’ll be a ferocious hunter, master of the forest

wolf: sweet thanks

god: but your descendants will live in an apartment with some lady who’s gonna feed them dried nuggies from a bag and chop off their nuts

dog: dude what the fuck

/Checks into Cheez-It Bowl
//still 7-0 in the third quarter

For the first time, I’m not regretting playing Frozen in lieu of a footed ball sport.

Way to let it go.

Well, it must be pretty safe there now, since Commander Bonespurs visited there just yesterday.
