Slow news week...

Instead of writing a big 2,000 word humor-filled column defending my sexual orientation, I have decided to come out of the closet and just admit that yes, I am a lesbian.

On that same topic, does anyone know if there is photographic or video evidence of Miss USA Tara Conner and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair actually engaged in amorous activities with each other? I refuse to believe that those two girls partook of each other’s fruit unless I see it with my own two eyes.

I’d like to write something of substance today, but there’s not really anything substantive happening. It has been a slow week. I’m not even getting junk emails this week. I guess it’s nice that spammers get some time off during the holidays. I was about to break down and take a vacation day tomorrow, but it was announced yesterday (Wednesday) that our office would be closing at 1:00 PM on Friday. I can’t take a whole day of vacation when I know they’re going to give me a half-day for free.

The company that Leah worked for when we wed had the right idea. It was an advertising company, so I guess ideas were their business. They would close down for at least two weeks during the holidays every year. Depending on what day of the week Christmas fell, Leah was off from like December 20th through January 8th. I’m not sure if she got paid for the time off or not, but wow, that would be nice. I couldn’t have done it then, but I’d gladly give up two weeks pay now if they’d shut down our office for two weeks during the holidays. I miss college.

Alas, our office is closed Monday for Christmas, and the next Monday for New Year’s. That is all. But you know what? There are a lot of parents of starving kids in Africa that would love to swap places with me any time I want to step forward and make that trade.

OHHHHH tonight thank God it’s them instead of you….
And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time…

I haven’t heard ‘Feed the World’ this year. What are the radio stations saving it for?

It really doesn’t feel much like Christmas. I haven’t done a lot of shopping (thank you Leah for taking care of everyones' presents - even my parents and Aunt Barbara - for Jack and I) and it’s been kind of warm here in Birmingham. I’m not asking for a white Christmas, but I shouldn’t be wearing golf shirts to work and breaking a sweat walking across campus in December. Any way, this Christmas season is slipping by me. Maybe it's because Christmas is on a Monday this year. I haven’t even listened to “A Very Special Christmas - 3” with:

I Saw Three Ships - Sting
Christmastime - The Smashing Pumpkins
Children Go Where I Send Thee - Natalie Merchant
Oi To The World - No Doubt
Christmas - Blues Traveler
The Christmas Song - Hootie & The Blowfish

I need to find it before it’s too late. Although, is it ever too late for some Blues Traveler?

This will probably be the last post for the week. May the friendship, fun, and laughter that you’ve brought to me be returned to you 1,000 fold. Merry Christmas everyone.

I truly admire your search for the truth in wanting to see the Miss USA's in the act before actually reporting its validity. Way to go Jam.

I told B this morning I was more in the Christmas spirit 3 weeks ago than I am now. However, the return of cooler temps has changed that somewhat.

Wishing you the best this holiday season as well. Don't you have a birthday coming up?

Yes I do! And we have reservations for 8 at Gianmarco's next Saturday night. Be there for round two of Boo vs. Gekko Merlot, or was it the Gato Merlot?

You've been quite active on the blog this week. Keep up the good work.

I too do not feel very Christmasy. Is it my lack of tree and decorations? I do have some egg nog though and it is yummy...and surprise I do prefer to drink mine WITHOUHT alcohol.

You are getting some GREAT Christmas/Birthday presents. You'll be surprised!

Haven't seen those 2 but have seen some of the other girl (Nevada) that got stripped of her title.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday.
