Can you say Merry Christmas? Yes, you can!

May all your Christmas wishes come true!

Have more fun this Holiday Season and Reach out and touch Someone

Hey, kids! Try this at home  (and away from home) 

Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone.

I say, “Bah, humbug!” to the bland, vanilla, PC “Happy Holiday” malarkey.

Take it up a notch, say “Merry Christmas” to the people on the bus, in line at Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the Lyft driver, the salesclerk, the bus driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…

“One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.”

Robert A. Heinlein

Yikes! The holidays are upon us, already?

Holiday Madness:

… on my heels like so many barking, braying, hunting dogs as I skip along darting in and out of shops and websites thinking: turkey, cranberry, gifts for the ex-in-laws, coal for the Ex, a necktie for lousy lover from EHarmony with ego the size of the Transamerica Pyramid.

***Bake cookies for therapists, Life Coach, trainer, and running partners.

***Order pencils with names emblazoned upon them for writing group.

Like wolves howling at a full moon: The threats of holiday madness – scratching at my door.

The frenetic and the frantic and I’m so freaked

There are the cards, the cookies, cranberry, the dreidels, the Christmas Carols, Ted and Alices, for dinner parties. Book club gifts, Stitch and Bitch trinkets to buy, tchotchkes for the Pilates pals (all those overachievers with Botox- so much Botox.)

Purchase Papyrus holiday cards for clients and Ex- clients and commence with the annual scouring the address book for once a year pals – they are the Hallmark friends- the list grows longer every year.

Do I compose a Christmas letter one filled with fallacy and fol der rol? Embellished to the max to make a dull life look like Florida perfect, sunshine, beaches, lush gardens, multiple beaus, and a social calendar ablaze with what’s haute and hot?

I have a cadre of fans– who long for my Sunshine State life and they are buried in snow in dull times three Pennsylvania and Upstate New York, Wisconsin, and Montana.

They want to read about my romances and rendezvous -my glamorous weekend jaunts to the resorts, the Keys, San Diego and Beverly Hills.

There is no way I can tell them the truth.

I’m not a well-rehearsed, practiced, fiction writer for nothing!

Skipping a reunion? Don’t even think about it

“Class reunions are the most important events to man”  Sartre

“Maybe by the 50th,

with all their FRICKIN’ grandkids born,

their PRECIOUS traveling done,

and their SOB STORY surgeries completed,

THEY’LL GRACE US WITH THEIR PRESENCE.”

Camus

            “Never miss a class reunion.” Goethe

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

Mother Teresa

“To miss a class reunion is like missing jello at Benson – unthinkable.”

Einstein

Things don’t go better with The Evil Koch Bros…

Psst!  Things don’t go better with The infamous Koch Brothers

Shocking: The Volume of Koch Industries‘ Toxic Output leaves you gasping for air:

Guess Who are the Top 30 Polluters in America?

According to the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Political Economy Research Institute, only THREE companies rank among the Top 30 Polluters of America’s air, water and climate:

  1. ExxonMobil
  2. American Electric Power
  3. Koch Industries

How now Koch – Pollutants are Dumped!

Thanks to Koch’s paper-mill giant Georgia-Pacific, Koch Industries dumps more pollutants into the nation’s waterways than General Electric and International Paper combined.

Koch ranks 13th in the nation for Toxic Air Pollution <gasp>

Koch’s Climate Pollution – outperforms Oil Giants like Valero, Chevron and Shell.

Gassed!

Across its businesses, Koch generates 24 million metric tons of greenhouse gases a year.

 

See:  The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party – by Frank Rich – New York Times

“Koch and his brother David Koch have quietly assembled, piece by piece, a privatized political and policy advocacy operation like no other in American history that today includes hundreds of donors and employs 1,200 full-time, year-round staffers in 107 offices nationwide.

That’s about 3½ times as many employees as the Republican National Committee and its congressional campaign arms had on their main payrolls last month, according to POLITICO’s analysis of tax and campaign documents and interviews with sources familiar with the network.”

And the staggering sum the network plans to spend in the 2016 election run-up ― $889 million ― is more than double what the RNC spent in the previous presidential cycle.”

Daddy Knows Best? A Joke!

Dr Cranium was in the middle of a complicated brain aneurism/corrective surgery when he needed a break  – he asked his daughter, the hospitial Candy Striper to take over.

General Patton Eishenhower Grant was involved at at National Security Conference pertaining to Russian Intel and – had to take a call about a July 4 Fireworks Committee – he asked his daughter, Mimi, the Girl Scout, to sit in for him at the Classified Event with 16 Generals. 

Captain Elmo Washington, the head of the NYC Fire Department, was at the site of voracious, devastating fire – and needed to get away for a bit. He asked his daughter, Macy’s top Chanel Cosmetics Clerk, to take over in his absence. Carley refused to don any protective gear – she thought it would wrinkle her ensemble and “smoosh” her hair.
