Present Tense

cherry poptartIs Xmas over already?

Dang it.

Just when I was starting to hit my "seasonal video" stride. Another week or so and I could have managed to squeeze in a few more viewings of "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" and/or "A Christmas Story". Better luck next year, Ralphie.

Generally speaking, I did pretty well this year in the gift-receiving department, mainly because my family decided to forego the usual gift swap, so I didn't go home with a handful of novelty t-shirts and more coffee mugs than your average Starbucks. Instead, the kith and kin collectively donated a handsome sum to the American Cancer Society in honor of my late sister, Karen.

My dear nephew didn't get the memo, though, and bequeathed upon me an heirloom-quality, though disappointingly PG-rated, print of Larry Welz's "Cherry Poptart". If you don't know what I'm referring to then its probably just as well.

Beloved girlfriend surprised me with a snazzy table saw which I shall put to good use. She also whipped-up one hell of an exceptional Xmas Eve meal featuring the finest in Polish comfort foods. Who knew she could find pierogies in ethnic-blighted Dallas?

We also made some Santa-hat Brownies. Just sayin'.

Hope you had a great holiday. Now onward to 2012!

Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #125 in a list of Republican job creation activities since the GOP gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(125) 12-26-2011: At the moment the GOP is home and snug in their whorehouses, licking their wounds as a result of the Payroll Tax ass-kicking they so justly deserved, but I'm sure they'll be back at work torturing the poor and the weak any day now.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.
