For the Rest of Us

The sooner today is over the better. Bah-fucking-humbug!!!

For the Rest of Us:

MILWAUKEE - Kevin Campanella hates buying and receiving Christmas presents that he says inevitably disappoint. This year, no such worries.

Campanella plans to seek "serenity now" by celebrating Festivus, a wacky holiday popularized in a 1997 "Seinfeld" episode. Billed as "Festivus for the rest of us," the holiday celebrated by the Costanza clan on Dec. 23 features an airing of grievances and feats of strength in which a guest must pin the host before the party ends.


Christams Filter:

We all know the holiday routine. Dashing through the traffic in a four-door SUV to celebrate the season as a family. There's one snag -- often we aren't laughing all the way.

As San Francisco marriage and family therapist Tracey Gersten says, "Everybody is hoping for this Norman Rockwell holiday. But it can turn into Roseanne Barr very quickly."

In fact, let's admit it, bickering on the holidays is nearly as much a holiday tradition as trimming the tree. In theory, we look forward to getting together because we share a bond of family. But in reality, we also share a long and sometimes touchy history.


Maybe there is a god. The only thing that has given me the warm and fuzzies this holiday season:

Authorities arrested a man on Tuesday who, they said, was caught on camera throwing rocks at the Republican Headquarters building in Columbus.

Officials said windows at the headquarters on South 5th Street have been broken nearly a dozen times, NBC 4's Erin Tate reported.

They also said staff members have nearly been pelted with thrown objects.

Republicans said they thought the vandalism would die down after the recent elections, but that wasn’t the case.


Talk about being fucking stubborn:

Teen Fights Removal of Bullet in Head

In the middle of Joshua Bush's forehead, two inches above his eyes, lies the evidence that prosecutors say could send the teenager to prison for attempted murder: a 9 mm bullet, lodged just under the skin.


I love the youth with too much time on their hands.


I'm a sinister elf with a sinister plan......
