Merry Christmas

Saturday, December 24, 2011

I must keep it short and sweet. There are just too many people around today and I am stealing time to even post this.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Allow me to share a funny thing I heard today:

She(WMBO) likes the SiriusXM station Holiday Traditions. It's got lots and lots of songs that mention Christmas and Santa but precious few of the standard Christmas Carols I like: Silent Night, Adeste Fidelis (O Come All ye Faithful), O Holy Night, etc. You know *Really* Christ Mass songs.

At one point they did a station ID and the announcer intoned "This is SiriusXM 75, Holiday Traditions. The station that remembers the Reason for the Season all year round!" (not really it goes off the lineup at 12:00 AM PST January 2, 2012 but ...) So in keeping with the Reason for the Season, the next song they played was ...

Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

I suppose the Reason for the Season is snow, right?

I knew it!



'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Saturday, December 24, 2011


The classic poem by Clement Clarke Moore, "A Visit from St Nicholas" better known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" read by me, with illustrations and effect by iMovie. I read it as I did to the kids ... wif my bes' Bawldimer accent, Hon.

Enjoy and Merry Christ Mass to all and to all a good night. I am not goint to have time to post Christmas Eve evening and I'm going to midnight Mass.



It's getting close ...

Friday, December 23, 2011

... and it's going to get crazy.

I walked about 5 miles this afternoon around town doing errands and I never even got my haircut. Which is what I went out for.

While I was out the Doctor called with MRI results. I have a torn rotator cuff and I will require surgery. I'll get the ortho referral on Tuesday.

Actually I did get a haricut but not at my barber. I was in his shop but with eight people ahead of me, I bagged it and headed for home. She(WMBO), whose errands on my list *did* get done, texted. "Pick up dinner?"

"Sure. Oh, I have to get my haircut tomorrow at 8:00 as soon as the doors open."

"Go to Hair Cuttery." I hate Hair Cuttery. I never get the same barber twice and they either cut off not enough or way to much and almost always mess up my beard.

"Tomorrow is dinner and I need you to do whatever I need you for. You are mine. And since dinner is early I will need you all morning." One guest family have to be at church at 3:00 for the pageant so we are eating at 1:00.

Translation, I'm her manservant so there will be no time for folderol like haircuts for me. And I already blew off this morning's long run because I had to be here to wait on a package of hers that never arrived while she was out getting her nails done. Somehow, I think I am getting the short end of the stick here.

But as I said it's getting crazy.

It does every year.

The haircut actually turned out ok. Not as good as Malcolm would have done, but ....

I texted her after my haircut. "what do you want for dinner?"
No response. So I sent it again.
No response. "OK El Nayar it is." She **HATES** Mexican food. Even the milder variety from Nayarit.
That got a response. The phone rang. "We need something that I can just put out on the table. How about KFC?"
"I'm walking here! Nearest KFC is a mile and a half the other way and it's dark now."

I got Subway.

Tomorrow, I expect to be in the car all day driving hither and yon doing battle with the crowd, just being all in the Christmas spirit (not), getting this and that and everything else at the last minute. Already, I have a 7:00 date at Atwaters Bakery for fresh bread. Oh well, I was going to be getting a haircut at 8:00, so I guess it's not so bad.





Tying a Bow Tie -- A Video Blog

Thursday, December 22, 2011

OK, I am really going out there. This is live TV! Real time doing something I only just learned how to do.

So watch the amzing T-man tie a bow tie. It will amaze you!

I did this on my MacBook Air and editied it on iMovie. The hardest part was tying it on camera. You get used to thinking about your mirror image when doing a skill like combing your hair, putting on make up or shaving, and tying a tie. But a camera usually give you a true image. It played tricks on my perception.
