THE QUOTES OF THE DAY

Quote I

This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse. — Clark W. Griswold Jr.


Quote II

"It was a perfect conversation. Absolutely perfect. I was simply talking to little Billy and asked him to keep tabs on his sister, Sally, who has been involved in some corruption. Who doesn't want to stop corruption? Did I offer Billy a new Nintendo Switch in exchange for his good behavior? Possibly. Am I planning on giving Sally coal because she's a little punk? Maybe. Where's my lawyer?"Santa Claus

As we approach Christmas, there are oodles and oodles of Christmas movies. One of the classics can be seen here.


Yes Morons, it really is a wonderful life. It's A Wonderful Life (H/T Bluebell)

Don't care for It's A Wonderful Life, feel free to discuss these movies.


And yes, Die Hard is a Christmas movie.

Wonderful idea. Maria was just a Russian gal wanting to buddy up with some Americans. She was not a government official of any kind.

What would happen to professional law enforcement agents or attorneys that took an oath to defend the Constitution?

What would happen to a man that was Vice President for 8 years and is now running for the office of President?

Oh, this is a really good idea.

Wonderful idea. Maria was just a Russian gal wanting to buddy up
with some Americans. She was not a government official of any kind.

As an interesting point, if you started arresting Western/Central Europeans that come to the US attempting to influence domestic policy, would we have enough prisons?

Really?

I DVR'ed it many months ago, but a couple of nights ago, watched it.

I immensely enjoyed it. Just like I remembered from decades ago. And none of the explodey scenes were CGI, just good old-fashioned blow the chit up stuff.

Now, if we are talking Bruce Willis's hairline, or those women with Farah Fawcett hair, I would have to agree.

The first scene with Willis, and my thought was "geez, that guy has aged".

Then I thought, I am about the same age as Willis.

Thank goodness I had a glass of bourbon in front of me.

216 I LOVE "A Christmas Story"! And "It's a Wonderful Life", too. And "Die Hard", as well, even though it's not a "traditional" movie about, well, you know, Christmas per se.

I seem to remember a movie called "Prancer" which was sort of good. And a TV movie with Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton which hasn't held up as well, but I liked it at the time.

It was about a man who knew that he wasn't going to see another Christmas, and wanted all of his kids to be together one last time.

Kind of brings it home for me this year, since I know that this will be my last Christmas with my Mom (maybe my Dad, too, just due to his age).

277 In regards to Zola and their ads, last time I checked, television stations aren't obligated to contract with ANY company for advertising.

And I am so FUCKING tired of seeing lesbians in my living room (and if you know that I do NOT use the f-word, you might have an idea just how upset this makes me) every time I turn on my television set.

And my late daughter was a lesbian (who I always wanted to see in my living room)!

Lesbians are even rarer in the wild (by a ratio of around 3:1) than gay men - how about some proportionality in entertainment offerings?

288 Hallmark has been rabidly anti-gun for at least 20 years now.

Every other degenerative trope follows from that one primary stance.

And I don't mean the gay as being the "degenerate" of whence I speak.

I mean the absolute Maoist practice of forcibly demanding that a society bend to it's whims, no matter what.

Go ahead and replace "gay" with *any* leftist stance, and the response from the Hallmarks of the world will be exactly the same:

Submit, or die.

That's their bottom line.

Rule .303 is mine.

Yeah, but here's the thing: gays (men especially) have a lot of disposable income because they don't have kids. Or wives. Or ex wives. So the wokecorps figure they'll get their greedy little hangs on that lifetime of gaybucks and live happily ever after.

A few years ago, a fundamentalist Christian church opened in Portland that thought that homosexuality was a sin, and received extensive, disapproving news coverage.

The imam of the biggest mosque in Portland called for the execution of homosexuals in an interview, and crickets. (He was stripped of his citizenship and deported earlier this year, after he admitted that he failed to disclose his service with the mujahedeen in Afghanistan on his citizenship application.)

As for forgotten/overlooked Christmas classics, I nominate "The Homecoming", the pilot/inspiration for The Waltons, with Patricia Neal as the mom, Andrew Duggan as the dad and Edgar Bergen as Grandpa. The rest of the cast (Richard Thomas, et al) is the same as in the TV series.

405 Holiday Affair (1949) with Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh is an offbeat Christmas movie but really not very good. It's very Christmas-y which I like. Some Christmas movies don't have the feel of Christmas at all. They're set during the holidays and have all the trappings but all of that seems incidental somehow or a mere plot driver.

406 An odd season for me this year.
A week ago I pulled a book from my shelf to check on some geology thing. A note from Karen, my late partner was in there.
She's been gone 5 1/2 years and I burst into tears.
I'm in a newish relationship. She knows all about Karen and understands my mourning her loss. It made for a tough week. Had laser tag in my eye Thursday to break up a membrane that had formed behind the new lens that had been transplanted with cataract surgery. Bright lights and disoriented all weekend.
Drinking bourbon tonight and enjoying a good cigar with friends here.

Yes, that's why the nieces and nephew gets a card with green in it. Licking it closed is easy and the color is always right. The great nephew has actually gotten gifts picked out and wrapped by me, without much input from my wife. My niece has been impressed.

Dave, the AoS Moron Handbook clearly states that in this situation you are to seek out the party and invite yourself.

I once got stuck at a hotel in PA during prom night. Good lord, they were a noisy lot until they wised up and got down to proper prom night hotel business.

Mandarin oranges/tangerines used to always be a Christmastime treat where I grew up. Grown in Japan, they came in little pinewood crates, and all wrapped in green paper. And yes, we'd get one in the stocking, but we had been enjoying them for several weeks by then.

Systemantics:

They promise to do a hard job faster, better, and more easily than you could do it by yourself. But if you set up a system, you are likely to find your time and effort now being consumed in the care and feeding of the system itself. New problems are created by its very presence. Once set up, it won't go away, it grows and encroaches. It begins to do strange and wonderful things. Breaks down in ways you never thought possible. It kicks back, gets in the way, and opposes its own proper function. Your own perspective becomes distorted by being in the system. You become anxious and push on it to make it work. Eventually you come to believe that the misbegotten product it so grudgingly delivers is what you really wanted all the time. At that point encroachment has become complete... you have become absorbed...you are now a systems person!

521 Just finished the second draft of my novel. Literally like an hour ago.

First draft took several months. This took, well...about two years, give or take. It's over 200k words at this point.

It still needs a lot of work, but it feels like I reached a huge milestone, because I think this time I pretty much solved all the big problems that stymied me in the first draft. I think I finally found the story I wanted to tell and told it to my satisfaction. The first draft felt like a rough sketch where I just cheated my way around the parts where I didn't know what I was doing. This feels much closer to a finished painting. I just want to go through it a few more times and tweak and polish it until I feel like it's as good as I can make it.

At any rate, I think I learned a lot from the process.

I know there are some moron novelists out there. Any of you have any advice/insight about what comes next?

Said pretty much the same thing to a guy at work on Friday.

Also, when you bought the place there should have been a description of the property in the paperwork.
Around here they put pegs in the ground that can be located with a metal detector at the corners of the property.

538 Skip, I can find the pins. It's just that a transfer of a portion of the neighbors' lot to mine (that was reflected on my warranty deed at the time of purchase) seems to have gone unrecorded. I can hardly wait to get tangled up in this. /s

Some years back our kindly older neighbor called me and asked if we were in trouble and why it was that our house had been listed as a sheriff's sale in newspaper notices. I said, "No, and let me get back to you on that second point."

It turned out that the deed for our purchase had been misfiled with another property at the registrar of deeds office and that it actually was the other property In the mixup that was in distress. Needless to say, we pressed for a correction vigorously and often until the error was corrected.

554 soy itself, soybean oil, soy flour, soy lecithin, *anything* soy.

they use the fould in hot dog buns, among other thing.

there's freaking soybean oil in tomato paste, of all things.

the local good gourmet burger place cooks their fries and onion rings in a combo canola/soy oil mix.

i'm afraid to eat doughnuts, because of soy possibly being in the mix, or being the oil they cooked them in.

i have contacted the restaurant we traditionally eat Christmas Eve dinner at, to inquire what menu items would be safe for me, besides the steak. as i pointed out to them, a baked potato with butter and sour cream ought to be safe, unless, of course, they wipe it down with soybean oil before the foil it up.

559 One of my neighbors has a peanut allergy. She goes through the same process...checking everything for any trace of peanuts or peanut oil. They rarely eat out because of it. You have an even worse time because soy is even more common than peanuts.
