“Happy” Valentine’s Day

… because she has long forgotten the “thought” that counted at Christmas.

Alanis Morrisette gives birth to Jesus

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.

Why?

Because in Kevin Smith‘s 1999 flim, Dogma, Alanis has a small but important role – she play’s God.

She plays God in a movie, then her first son is born on Jesus’ birthday?

Weird.

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.

Fine then! Have a merry Christmas!

See if I care…

Christmas stinks!

I really, really don’t like Christmas. I hate it.

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:

  1. 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.)
  2. It was created in December 1998.  (Yes, that’s what I mean by back in the day!)
  3. 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!

Christmas trees are *supposed* to lose their needles

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. 

If you don’t like the random smattering of pine needles, then take your Grinchy self to Wal-Mart and get a fake plastic tree instead. Don’t ruin the real ones!

It’s Rememberance Day, but not at the mall

I pass through the Rideau Centre most mornings on my way to the office, and I’ve noticed that more and more Christmas decorations have been going up this week.  But somehow I was still taken by surprise this afternoon when I walked by and realized that the Santa Claus chair is already set up.

Today is November 11th!!!  NOVEMBER!

It’s too damn early for Christmas decorations, and it is WAY too early for Santa’s chair!!!

Fairytale of New York is just too good to ignore for 11 months

Every January I make the same resolution:

I will not listen to the The PoguesFairytale of New York again until next year when stores start playing Christmas music.

And every year I give in.  Seriously, I have no will power at all.  Please don’t ask me for money.

I almost made it this year… But it’s such a great song!
