Yes, the chicken nativity. My husband – the Buddhist – wants a nativity scene because there are chickens. Yes, there is something wrong with it.
Also, I was reminded once again why I don’t let my husband get the stamps for the holiday cards. If you would have gotten a card from our family, the stamp would have been a celebration of Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. He couldn’t get the snowmen.
In more Friday randomness, check out this video. Another Garbanzo find…
This truly is how a cat reacts in snow. At least mine did.
I saw this on Obtuse Goose and laughed:
I actually just watched a mockumentary about the Real World: San Francisco, and specifically about Pedro, the man who was on there who was HIV positive. I had this same realization as I was watching it. This was the only season I watched because I wanted to see how Pedro’s appearance affected people.
I had to attend my first girl scout leader meeting tonight. Can I just say that I hope this is not an indication of organization? It started 20 minutes late. I learned not to sit in the back because that’s where the gossipy, committee women sit. It was pretty annoying not being able to hear because they were talking. Oh, and then there was no agenda, and the cookie ladies spent waayyy too much time talking about the same cookie stuff they talked about for two-and-a-half hours during “cookie training”. I drove 35 minutes to this damn meeting from my house….yeah, not worth it.
Being serious for a second, I just have to comment about this story. Go read it, I’ll be here when you get back.
When I read the first article to Garbanzo, a teacher, about what happened, he was appalled. Who didn’t notice these kids were missing? Why weren’t the halls and stairs being monitored? This was a total breakdown of procedure at this school – rape aside. And now the fact people are saying that the girl could have fought back or screamed or something which means the administrators should not be in trouble – WTF?? I can’t help but wonder what other teachers think about their “excuses”? I know my husband’s reaction.

I love the time and effort someone put into this table. Makes me feel the way I did when I went to The Taproom the first time with Hubman and Veronica. I wanted to try it all so I can start checking them off the list.
I read this article today and couldn’t help but think about the Sookie Stackhouse series (aka True Blood for those who watch the HBO series and don’t read the book) and the series of books by Kerrelyn Sparks. Both involve vampires coming out into the open after the discovery of a synthetic blood. Looks like some scientists have created a synthetic blood that acts like real blood in form and function. Should be interesting to watch.
Tonight, we are dumping the kids at an overnight at taekwondo school, and then we will be finishing the Christmas shopping. Then, it will be home for some adult fun. We had some great fun the other night in front of the fireplace on this – a naughty Santa gift from several years ago. I think we’ll be doing that again.
Hope everyone has a good Friday!
