Christmas card exchange-get a card from me!!

charlie brown Christmas

As I have gotten older Christmas has had less and less meaning for me. When I was a kid I was all about the presents but somewhere down the line not being able to give gifts like I wanted soured me on the holiday.

Now mostly I enjoy Christmas vicariously through my nephew, making sure he gets the hottest games for whatever video game system he has. Recently in the last few years I have gained some enjoyment by sending or giving out Christmas cards.

Mailing them to people,leaving them on windshields, giving them to cashiers at the bank and drive through restaurants,some I don't even know. Anyway I would love to give out some this year so if you read this post between Nov, 18th 2008-DEC 1,2008 sign up to receive a Christmas card and if I can, I will send you one.

Leave your: full name and address and if you are not from the United States leave your country and zip code.

pushing daisies

pushing daisies
So another show I like is going to be canceled. The Nielsen’s ratings system really needs to be overhauled, are we really suppose to believe the opinions of a few people are the viewing habits of millions of Americans. Anyway about Pushing Daises it is one of the most creative and interesting shows to come to prime time TV in a loooooong time, I'll be sorry to see it go.

I guess I should describe the show a bit for the uninformed. The series is about a guy named Ned that is a pie maker with a unique ability, the ability to bring the dead back to life with a touch, he also can "redead" them by another touch. The only drawback is if he does not redead something after 60 seconds something or someone else has to die to balance the scales out.

he is joined on the show by his partner Emerson Cod, a private investigator that uses Ned's gift to help solve crimes and his childhood friend and girlfriend Charlotte(A woman he brought back to life and can never touch again or she will die again). The rest of the cast is rounded out by his waitress , Olive Snook and Charlotte's two aunts Vivian and Lily Charles. also his revived dog Digby.

some of the funny things about election 2008

Election 2008 was historic and also funny, from the things the candidates said to what was said about them on late night TV and SNL. here are some of the funny moments


South park made a episode that showed that the whole election was not about change but spare change, as both candidates for the presidency are revealed to be thieves and try to pull off an Ocean's 11 type caper to steal the hope diamond.

candidates joke at Alfred e Smith charity dinner

The two candidates took time out from campaigning to attend the 63rd annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a charity event organized by the Catholic Archdiocese of New York, a dinner where they showed their lighter side.

Tina Fey does Sarah Palin

Saturday Night Live had been doing political parodies for most of the election season but the ratings went through the roof when Tina Fey started doing her impression of Governor Sarah Palin.

male enhancement pills

Do male enhancement pills work?

There are a lot of claims made about male enhancement pills and I tend to think they don't work. There is an infomercial running on late night TV with a bevy of beauties sitting around discussing there past relationships. Each woman complains about how small their partner was and how it affected the relationship.After seeing this infomercial you will quickly call an order up a case of their products.When Viagra came out guys went wild about it, comedians made jokes, studies were done on it, Bob Dole advertised it. If male enhancement pills worked, the company would be the richest company in the world. Now when I say male enhancement I mean the claim that pills can increase the length of your" little partner". If a pill made you bigger, guys would be taking these things like Tic-Tacs. So my answer, researched on WebMD is no.

Barack Obama wins presidency

barack obama wins presidency
After a long and contentious campaign at times Barack Obama wins the presidency. The first man of African descent, the first ethnic person other than white to hold this position. I don't know what the future holds but for now we have a snapshot in history.
