Little Drummer Boy

Since it's the Christmas season, here's something to chew on. We've invented microwave dinners, put a man on the moon, and pioneered genetic research. But in all our technological wonder, no one has thought about making freaking tangle-free Christmas tree lights. You know the scene - you've got the tree up, the decorations are on, and everything is perfect. Just the lights to get on the tree and you're done. But you reach into the box of decorations and pull out a jumbled mass of wires that looks like someone's intestines. And the worst part is, you will spend the next hour or so enlisting the help of an entire household to get the damn thing untangled. Of course, you're actually making things worse as you go along, but you're determined to be victorious. And you know what's even better? Those stupid sharp plastic lights that are supposed to look like stars or some shit on your tree - the crap ones that the store guy gleeful sold you because they looked good on the store tree. These little fuckers will carve into your skin as you go along, so in the end you hands look like you've been manhandling a cat. Here's my suggestion - why don't we just set the whole damn tree on fire? There is nothing better on a cold night than a nice big warm fire to cuddle around. Oh and the fragrant smell of slightly charred pine.

Speaking of trees, can someone please explain to me this new phenomenon of an 'upside down Christmas tree'? I nearly passed out when I saw this in a mall - a tree that's basically standing on its head with its ass up in the air. Which guru came up with this radical design? The best thing - truly the best thing, was the number of people who were coming up, admiring the sad excuse for a tree, and picking up boxes of the it! Will we buy anything these days and call it a tree? A co-worker of mine has decorated a palm tree with tinsel this year. A palm tree? I mean we may be in a freaking desert, but what's next - a Sahara Santa?

Up and Down
People love to give advice. Whether you've asked for it or not, someone is always going to tell you what they think. Wouldn't it just be easier for everyone if there was a 1-800 number you could dial for advice? And I don't mean those lameass anti-depression phone lines you can call and talk to some bimbo on the end who's probably too busy filing her nails to worry about your O.D. No, I mean a proper phone service with certified people who can actually relate to the shit you're going through. Want to work at the suicide hotline? The requirement would be that you should have attempted suicide at least 4 times (and preferably lived). But then again, the only reason your dumb ass is still alive today is that you didn't listen to someone's advice about the proper height to jump from. See? It all ties back into itself quite nicely. And by the way, what's with the little sign near the bridge that says "DON'T JUMP - CALL THIS NUMBER" I'm committing suicide and you expect me to have a cell phone on me? Hell no - I'm not taking my Nokia down with me! And what if the lines are busy - do you get a message like "All are staff are busy helping other lunatics. Please don't jump, your life is important to us"

Growing up, I got all sorts of useless advice, especially from my mum. SO digging through my morbid childhood, let's go through some of her real gems:

Don't eat seeds, a tree will grow inside you.
If I had a buck for every time she said this, I could go out and buy a freaking palm tree, stick it in the toilet, and then tell my mum Look ma - come see what I made!

Leave a little bit left in your glass or people will think you're greedy.
For the life of me, I don't know what this one is supposed to mean. And you want to know the really retarded thing? I'm still leaving a bit of juice or whatever in my glass even today! Stupid fucking subliminal programming...

Don't play with dogs - you're going to get asthma.
I used to get this only when I'd go over to my Uncle's house. He had an adorable Alsatian dog, and I would love to play with it for hours on end. But clearly my mum must have had some sort of tragic encounter with a dog when she was a kid, because every time we got home, she would march me into the bathroom and scrub me down like I was a chopping board.

Later on in life though, she quit preaching her own words of wisdom, and starting quoting other people. Oh so-and-so said that soaking your utensils in bleach water will make them SHINE. Yea, go ahead with that one ma - when I'm foaming at the mouth please don't be alarmed. And recently she has gotten to quoting Oprah. Now I like Oprah, she's a cool woman on a mission to clothe the unfashionable and what not, but not a day goes by without my mum instilling some or Oprah's words of wisdom. Oh today Oprah said this and then this happened and then he came on the show.. I mean it sounds like a ball by ball play when my mum talks about the Oprah show. I tell you that Oprah's gotten a bit drunk with power - "Okay everyone, today's show is going be taped in...this jumbo jet! Yea! YES! YES! WOOHOO! YES! And we're all going to go on...A MYSTERY FLIGHT! YEA! YEA! Now instead of landing on the runway, we're going to park our plane right into the side of that building over there...now I can see a few worried faces in the audience, but don't worry - you all get...A FREE TOTE BAG!

It Takes Two

Re: Pride & Prejudice

Dear Mr. _________,

It has been brought to our attention that you recently made a false comment regarding our organization's founder, Mr. Harrison Ford.

On the morning of December 12th, 2007, you stated that Mr. Harrison Ford starred in a film production 'Pride & Prejudice'. I would like to clearly state for the record that Mr. Ford did not act in said film, and the credibility of your information is clearly questionable.

We would appreciate some token of public apology on your behalf for discrediting Mr Ford's reputation with said comment.

Yours sincerely,

The Ford Foundation.

Jingle Bell Rock
So the Christmas season is upon us, and as usual I am running around like a headless turkey because I have way too much work to get down and zero time on my hands. I've got 11 cake orders to fill in, a 7ft christmas tree to put up, decorate the entire house, finalize my Christmas Party plans, finish gift shopping, and carol rehearsals. But there's one thing about Christmas which actually makes me smile. Christmas has no longer become a Christian-only tradition, and many of my non-Christian friends are gleefully telling me that they're going to be putting up their tree soon and arrange a Christmas dinner. Now all this of course is purely the commercial aspect of Christmas talking, but in all honesty, it really is nice to see how during a time of thanks and giving, most people can pack up their shit and enjoy some quality time with friends and family, regardless of their religion. So go ahead - put up a Christmas tree, fix a bear trap for Santa, and snuggle into bed.

Do you know what I find to be the funniest thing in the world? People who are so insecure about their luggage being lost or stolen during a flight, that they not only lock the suitcase, but bind it with plastic rope and write 'DXB - BOMBAY' on white tape all over the damn thing. Take note people..it's called Mumbai now. The second funniest thing? Guys who straighten their hair to look all sophisticated, but end up looking like a dried mop head. I've seen a couple of guys who've had their hair straightened, and then cut up properly so that it looks really good, but so many guys I've seen recently just have it straightened and then combed flat back across their head, as if to carve a drag-race track in their skull. Whenever I see these guys around I just want to go up to them and say "Ever heard of a stylist?"

Take me Home
So a little bit more publicity for me today - I got my blog reviewed by a site called "Our Blog Review". Basically if you have a blog and you'd like to know what someone else thinks of it (I mean what they truthfully think...no money bribes here) then give them a holler.

You can read my blog's review here. Thanks for making this drama queen smile (:
