Isn't it going to be great to have a 2007 without a Saddam Hussein in it?
What else should we celebrate about the end of 2006??

Word is that Saddam Hussein is going to be executed within the next few hours.
Here are six words that make me giddy:
"Saddam Hussein is about to die."
You know what four words will make me even more giddy?
Last night was movie night at the Esmay abode. We bought Jake a couple DVDs for Christmas and viewed one after dinner. The movie? Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby
We all laughed so hard I was afraid I'd have some nasty laundry to take care of after. Lucky for me, we all held our spleens. Dean was even tricked into laughing at Sasha Baron Cohen. Cohen played the French guy to my utter delight.
I highly recommend this bawdy movie, if you are in need of uncontrolled laughter.

Jesus Christ, it's not even 2007 and already John Edwards has announced he's running for President. Talk about starting a little early!?!?
I actually like Edwards, but holy cow. Maybe he should announce for 2012 and 2016 while he's at it?

Survivor: Cook Islands, the Racial Divide
I'm not going to lie. I'm a HUGE Survivor fan, so my opinion may be just a tad bit skewed on this issue. But what was the big deal about the tribes initially being separated by race?
We had 4 initial tribes:
There was all this uproar about how unfair it was. How the show should be pulled or boycotted. The one thing the controversy did is make me realize how much an idiot Rush Limbaugh really is. He was unfamiliar with the format and made some very asinine statements about how the White tribe was dominating. They may have had the upper hand in the first episode, but that was going to end when the tribes merged to two. If you listened to El-Idiot-bo, they merged because the white tribe was too dominant. Apparently he did not watch the previous seasons where four tribes merged to two after the second episode. It was already in the works. They didn't do it because one side dominated.
If the white side was so dominant, how come the final 4 represented all ethnicities BUT white?
The final four contained an African-American, Hispanic-American and two Asian-Americans.
The ultimate survivor was Yul Kwon, an Asian-American. A very intelligent and deserving winner. He beat out Hispanic-American, and my personal favorite Ozzy Lusth. Ozzy won a car, so it wasn't all bad for him.
Of all 13 seasons of Survivor, I would have to say that this one was the best. Thanks to the twist of allowing 3 people to go before the jury it allowed for a 5-4-0 vote. Otherwise Ozzy would have taken Becky and won 7-0. Yul would have beaten Becky 7-0 as well.
It was a great season. It makes all those people who complained about how unfair and stupid it was, look like idiots. I'm betting that is exactly the way Mark Burnett wanted it. That man is a genius. Now only if he can get Trump to fire himself on the new season of The Apprentice..

Barak Obama May Not Run
So I read that Barak Obama may not run for President.
Jesus. Have you ever seen more people swooning over a first-term Senator with barely any real accomplishments before? I don't hate the guy but Jesus, the way they talk about him as if he's the Second Coming or some crap like that. It's just crazy isn't it?

Men Are Criminals?
Ron Coleman is annoyed at the way men are being treated.
There is a trend that makes a husband in a divorce proceeding a criminal defendant?
Man, it sucks to be you.

Senator Suffers Stroke
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson [D-SD] has reportedly suffered a stroke.
Please keep him and his family in your prayers. While I was disappointed to see the Senate change hands during the election, this is not the way I would like to get it back.

2006 Weblog Awards
The Good News? I've been nominated.
The Bad News? I'm getting my ass kicked.
I had no idea that I was even nominated. Considering that lack of knowledge, I'm not doing too bad without any vote whoring.
Voting continues till December 15th. If you're bored, go vote for me or trim your nails.
Totally funny but if profanity is an issue, don't watch it at work.

Islamophobic Backlash Alert
After the business with the flying imams last week comes this: Muslim woman cites gym after interrupted prayer.
Ara can correct me if I make an inaccurate statement. What I am about to say is admittedly second-hand data. It is my understanding that some religiously observant Jews go out of their way to arrange their schedules on Fridays to avoid having to do "work" after sunset, in observance of the Sabbath. (The quotes are not derisive. They are intended to convey that work covers more activities than what most people would consider work. (I hate that I had to qualify that))
Similarly, one is unlikely to find observant Catholics picketing Arby's on Fridays during Lent to protest the consumption of meat by non-believers. (Not the most apt of analogies, but a better Catholic one escapes me)
So it is within the spirit of 'not making a spectacle of yourself to others who don't believe as you do' that I say:
Muslims! Go to the gym BETWEEN prayers.
Nobody prays at gyms during workouts. Or while shopping at grocery stores. Or during the last thirty minutes of "Happy Feet" at the theater. Or while pumping gas at the 7-Eleven. Or at the Pee-Wee Mini-Midget League football game (except for the players in the huddle before the game. At least until the ACLU gets wind of it).
For My Liberal Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. And without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes. By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.
For all others:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
