Weather, happy happy joy joy

And I’m not being sarcastic.

There is something about Christmas that brings out the worst in people and I am no exception. There is just something too delightful in the thought of the orphanage burning down on Christmas Eve, or Scrooge waking up on Christmas morning with a hearty “Bah! Humbug!” and then going out with Marley’s ghost to break Tiny Tim’s other leg and throw him into the Thames before doing business with Bob Cratchet’s eldest daughter at her street corner office.

And tonight, one of the busiest travel nights of the year, the weather is horrid in the Midwest. Travellers are stranded at airports and will probably not be unstranded for days. Cars are sliding off the roads and in some parts the skeletoned remains of their occupants will not be found until June.

It is wonderful! I’m inside with my wife, warm and cuddly, our presents waiting to be wrapped tomorrow and put under the tree, our larder full to overflowing and the light from the computer monitors casting a delightful glow in the office/laboratory.

It is nights like that this that make it fun to be alive.

    Well Put Uncle Chuck! I couldn’t have said it better myself. The thing that disgusts me the most is all the bell ringers(in every doorway) during the Xmas season with their cans of donations they will use on cheap wine and dildos for the chaplains. If only I had a buck infested with the anthrax germ?
    Glad this fraudulent emotional season is over. Soon onto 2010. My New Years resolution is to view the following with delightful splendor — wishes are richter 10+earthquakes, meteorites showers, Suicidal Jesus clans, Anus Worship churches built on consecrated holy grounds, and Computers that masturbate the users –among other things.
    Happy Evil New Years!!!
