So, Tuesday I took our 18 month old daughter to the department store to get Mrs. Mojo a pair of UGGs as she has no winter footwear at all. After 30 minutes of last minute madness, the daughter started getting really impatient, so I gave her the boot we were trying to size. She put this boot on, her "thigh-high" boot and started walking around, except it was so heavy that she limped like her booted leg was completely frozen. Moreover, she had to keep the boot on, which meant holding it up with her hand. Wearing the giant boot, stiff legged, and holding it up with her hand, she looked like Tiny Tim holding his little crutch limping around spreading Christmas cheer. Perhaps I like an audience more so than she, because when the small crowd of people gathered around to watch her, I called out in my best faux-Dickens, "God Bless us! Each and every one!"

Oh yeah... the Icelandic Christmas Cat... good ol' puss... anyway, here's a fun write up about kitty. Excerpt:
Jólakötturinn is a lovable, wholly unholy beast, a sort of proto-fashion police whose impeccable sense of style, in your face attitude and lack of respect for human life terrified Icelanders into stylistic submission in ways that today’s anorexia-inducing Vogues and Cosmopolitans can only dream of. The ginormous cat’s sole purpose in life is to eat children (and adults, some say) that do not get a new piece of clothing before Christmas. Yes, it devours financially disadvantaged children.This is the kind of message Icelanders like to send out in their folklore: if you do not have the money or means of acquiring new items of clothing before the festival of lights, you will be eaten by a gigantic cat. This is one of the reasons that Icelanders clock in more hours of overtime at their jobs than most European nations: to avoid the cat, we stayed up sewing or knitting in the olden days, and we stayed up graphic designing or stock-brokering in early 2008.
Icelandic folklore in general, much like all folklore, is really fucked up.

By far, the name Kriss Kringle is the most blasphemous. With Kriss, Satan slowly removes the mask. There is no doubt about the intentions of "Kriss Kringle".

Believe it or not. . . Kriss Kringle is German for "little Christ Child".

    Kriss Kringle A US name for Santa Claus derived from the German Christkindl (little Christ child).
    (Brewer's Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Phrase and Fable, p. 334)

Santa Claus or Kriss Kringle is the counterfeit "Christ Child"!
Is it possible that these subtle allusions to Satan and counterfeit attacks at the Lord Jesus Christ are just merely coincidences?

All you loving MeFites who saved my life this year (yup, you really did), you gave me Christmas in March, April, May and June when I really, really needed it. Thank you from the roots of my heart for being caring, generous and kind. Before you helped, I'd lost my hope, didn't think I could pull through. *cue violins, Tiny Tim wisecracks and kleenex. No, really.
You certainly showed me that spirit people talk about in the holidays isn't some fake Hallmark thing. Truly, thank you.

I'm on my feet now, a little weak still but coming along ok, feeling charged with renewed hope (and speaking of the h-word, Obama ws elected! Whoo hoo!).

Merry Christmas dear MeFites and sincere wishes that you have an excellent New Year. Wishing you worthy links, weeping tears of hilarity snark, zappy wit, erudite comments, eye opening amazement, all kinds of cool learning, joy, peace, feeling healthy, getting through these financially difficult times ok, loving, feeling loved, appreciated and everything good.

Last night as I was drifting off into an uneasy sleep, kinda unhappy in the moment, trying to reset my mind, the heat was up too high so I had opened the window and someone outside, around 2 am dredged up this guttural scream, almost a verbal vomit "Baaaaah Humbug!"

This morning I made bacon and sausages and my step daughter (based entirely on me once semi-facetiously saying I wished I had an Xbox 360 in a passing moment) saved her pennies and secretly bought me one (she had just enough money to get me a refurbished one, on Black Friday, no games or anything else), this surprised the shit out of me. So there it sits, next to the TV, this act of kindness by my thirteen year old stepdaughter (whom we have recently entered into all the battles of teenagerhood with). I don't really care if I never play a game on it. I'm not really a Christmas type, although I like the trapping of the day well enough. But today I learned something, like a real sitcom type lesson about love and generosity.

My warmest wishes to you and yours.

CHRISTMAS IN THE WORKHOUSE’

Twas Christmas in the work'ouse,
The best day of the year.
And the paupers all was 'appy,
for their guts was full of beer.

Now the master of the work'ouse,
Strode those dismal 'alls,
and wished the men "Merry Christmas"
and the workers 'ollered "Balls!"

Now the master he grew angry
and he swore by all the Gods,
They'd 'ave no Christmas pudding,
the lousy lunk of sods.’

When up stood a war scarred veteran,
who'd stormed the Khyber Pass, and said,
"You can take your Christmas pudding
and stick it up your ass!"

jessamyn: "No. Why aren't you at the movies?"

Once upon a time, like all properly secularized Jews, this was my family's tradition, too. On Christmas Day, we'd go to a movie, and we'd run into the Cohens and the Goldsteins and the Levines there. And no one else. Fast forward to 2003 or so, and the movies are fucking packed on Christmas. Somehow in the past ten or fifteen years, going to the movies has become a tradition for the Gentiles. So now, on Christmas Day, we wait for our neighbors to go to the movies, and then break into their house and play with their toys and enjoy hot cocoa and each others' company by the crackling fire.

We figure someone oughta.

Dammit I'm late. I went to the woods, where there are no Internets. Have a bloviated, post-Jesus everything, y'all.

I just got back home after 2 days with family. *Cradles a glass of wine* Cheers for the holidays and cheers for them being... umm... over!

Wow, I'm so happy to be safely home where I belong.

Last night, I gathered up a group of about 6 friends. We tried Absynthe for the first time, then split the bacon-candy bar my secret Quonsar sent me. Then, I inflicted upon my party the films Troll 2 and The Room, movies I'd first heard about from an Askme thread a few days ago. That's just how much Mefi infected my holiday season.
Also: The Room is awesome. So is bacon candy bar. Absynthe has me in hungover mode, however.
