Bring on 2011!!

Alanis Morissette (*cringe* – *shudder*) gave birth to a boy on Christmas day! Normally, the family life of washed-up singers with grating voices is not very high on my blogging priority list. But this one stands out… Somehow that fact that her baby was born on December 25 seems oddly appropriate.
She plays God in a movie, then her first son is born on Jesus’ birthday?
In case you were wondering, they’ve named the kid Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway. Why do celebrities find it so hard to choose decent names?
Oh, and no, it is not ironic.
See if I care…
In fact, I hate it at least as much as this guy – though I suppose he wins just for having the presence of mind to dedicate a blog to his hatred.
But you know what is awesome? This website -> Ten Reasons Why I Hate Christmas
Now, I know what you are thinking: “Bah, only ten reasons? That’s nothing.” Well, I agree. But the website isn’t awesome because of it’s content – oh no. It’s awesome because:
- It is hosted on Anglefire.com (If you don’t remember Anglefire from back in the day, then you’re a damn kid. Go ask your Dad.)
- It was created in December 1998. (Yes, that’s what I mean by back in the day!)
- Despite the first two highly unlikely attributes, it still manages to come up as #3 on a Google.ca search for “I Hate Christmas”.
That is what you call staying power!
Bah humbug to all!
Yes, of course every one knows that the hardware was designed by Samsung, but since the first phone was specifically called the Nexus One, it seemed silly that the new one would directly refer to the manufacturer. After all, everyone was expecting a Nexus Two.
But then I saw it! Oh how clever! So very, very clever! The letter ‘S’ is basically a mirror image of the number ‘2’!
So Google has essentially named the phone ‘Nexus 2’ – just like everyone expected – but without making it obvious. And at the same time they have a nice little hat-tip to Samsung.
Well played, Google. Well played.
CBC is reporting that a bunch of yahoos at Laval University have found a way to stop Christmas trees from shedding their needles.
Well isn’t that just great! Congratulations, you’ve single-handedly ruined Christmas for everyone!
Presents just don’t look right under the tree unless they have at least a few needles scatter about them.
