I felt a little enlightened after reading this piece over the use of “merry” as in Merry Christmas.Â But I was already aware of the Xmas part of the article.
I enjoy creating our Christmas letter each year, but I’m always left with that feeling I could have made it better or I left something out.Â I’ll post it in a few days, I’m waiting for WifeGeeding to put them in the mail.Â I would hate to ruin the anticipation of reading our card from any of you that’s on our list.Â [Note: That last sentence should have been read with a sarcastic tone.]
The last four years I’ve sent the same Christmas card, and this is the year I think I’m finally going to run out of them.Â Sigh.
Every year around Halloween and Christmas our local fire department will drive down the street and turn on the sirens and lights.Â On Halloween they throw out candy, during Christmas Santa waves.Â I appreciate them doing such a thing.

The other night WifeGeeding fell asleep before I did (that’s nothing new) but before I was about to turn in for the night I went to give her a kiss goodnight.Â But that startled her and she actually punched me in the face.Â I tell the guys at the office the black-eye is a result of me running down a purse snatcher.

I’ve started to watch the Fox medical drama “House.”Â Not bad.Â I needed to find another hour long drama other than “Friday Night Lights.”Â There’s something I enjoy about freeing myself from the everyday world for an hour and getting lost into a make believe world.Â At least “Lost” comes back on next month.
I had a Papa Murphy’s pizza the other day since I friend recommended it to me.Â I went with the Chicago style and it was great.Â Basically the make the pizza for you, and you take it home and bake it.Â Normally I wouldn’t do such a thing, but they turned me into a believer.
I heard someone reference “brain cloud” the other day.Â Can you name the movie?
If you like to eat and travel, then you must be envious of Adam Richman since that’s what he does for a living.Â He on this show called Man v. Food.Â Here’s the show in a nutshell: After hunting down the can’t-miss flavors that make up each region’s unique culinary history, Adam will take on the city’s toughest food challenge.
The other morning Bryan Adams’ “Summer of 69” came on the radio.Â There’s something about that song that make me feel good, so I had to crank up the volume.
Sometimes I wish the Daily Show didn’t have an audience.Â There are times when Jon Stewart is in a very interesting debate with a guest and the crowd ruins the counterpoint by cheering.
Here’s an interesting story about a Dodge that was left alone since the 1940’s.
I like miniature candy canes better than regular size candy canes.
