    Wise guys … blow molds … everything a person needs for their Sopranos-themed Nativity lawn display.

    One question, though: is Livia Soprano the Kind Herod stand-in?

          Unless I’ve confused you with Windrose, I believe Astro is the same age as the Tanklette. Whether this is wrong is entirely up to your intentions and how Chris Hansen interprets them.

      In a small Southern town there was a nativity scene that indicated great skill and talent in its creation. One small feature bothered me though. The three wise men were wearing firemen’s helmets.

      Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a “Quik Stop” on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, “You darn Yankees never do read the Bible!”

      I assured her that I did, but simply couldn’t recall anything about firemen in the Bible. She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a particular passage.

      Sticking it in my face she said, “See, it says right here, ‘The three wise men came from afar.'”

    If one comma is good, 2 commas must be better!

      [corey] Blow molds are those hollow plastic figures that were popular before the birth of inflatable decorations allowed you to erect a ten foot high animated snowglobe on your front lawn. They are called blow molds because the plastic is sprayed (or “blown”) inside the mold to produce a thin shell rather than poured in a solid chunk, but feel free to come up with other explanations if you like ??

    Hey, Happy Long Weekend to those of you who don’t have to work. If you do work somewhere that stays open, demand that your boss purchase some blow molds to dress the place up a bit. Chances are good, you’ll get the weekend off, and many more days after that!

      Half day for me. We cut out for our annual Christmas luncheon at noon where we’ll eat good food and drink good wine/beer and a drawing for random gift baskets/bags will ensue. (The executive secretary always buys something like 8 or 10 of them and we all draw numbers to see who gets one.) Then I’m off for 4 days, work for 2 (which will be utterly dead), then off for another 4. I’m glad I got out of retail years ago; I hated having only Christmas and New Years days off, and boxing day was always insane.

      Hope everyone has a great Christmas regardless!

        Back from the Christmas party, which was quite nice. Had a good if slightly undercooked steak, garlic potatoes which could be more accurately described as potatoed garlic, a bunch of appetizers, and my favourite B52 coffee for dessert. Didn’t win anything at the draw, so I’m 4 for 6, but the one who never gets her number drawn and is always quite vocal about it finally got something other than drunk this year, her first at least since I came to the company, but probably longer if the way she dramatized not winning even during my first year is any indication.

        Went and did a little last-minute shopping — nothing major, storage containers for leftovers, Veloutine from apparently the only store in the city that has any left, and a few knick knacks, including some catnip pillows for the kitties for Christmas. Now I’m home for the next four days — wee! Now it’s time to start dinner and work on some music.

        Merry Christmas Eve y’all!

        Would that you could have induced the rest of the cretaines on I-35 today to also so comply.
        Was a great excess of people acting as if they’d never, ever, not never driven in the rain in their lives entire. Gee, the cold front and associated rain were a close-held secret under the highest-possible classification and all; not like it was on every newscast, the radio, inter-tubes, and such–nope, a complete Perl Arbor [stinking sneaker germanes].

        My three-hour-tour went 3:58 today. But, luckily, there’s beer here, and most of the cooking was done. Tamales, three kinds (chicken, pork, & brisket), with a salsa con carne and a salsa queso con carne. Horrible stuff, in the interest of the public good, the 46.3 elebentyillion people who wandered in for buffet supper made sure to destroy all traces of the wickedness.

        Now, they’ve all gone, with their offspring as well, and now, peace, bless-ed peace and time on the computer with my imaginary friends.

    Santa has a high-tech information infrastructure and informant network that makes Homeland Security look like a geriatric shut-in.

    It’s so sad that after the birth of Jesus the wise men fell from glory so quickly. One day they were presenting the son of God with gifts at his birth, the next they’re addicted to moldy blow and running a seedy bar called the 3 Wiseguys.

    Such a shame.

    Time for a seasonal poem. I guess everyone knows that Google can translate a word or phrase.

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the casa,
    Not a creature was stirring—Caramba! Que pasa?
    Los ninos were tucked away in las camas,
    Some in vestidos and some in pajamas.
    Papa esta in el corner saloon,
    Muy borracho since mid-afternoon!
    While hanging the stockings con mucho cuidado,
    In hopes that old Santa would feel obligado
    To bring all children, both buenos y malos,
    A nice batch of dulces and other regalos.
    Outside in the yard there arose such a grito
    That I jumped to my feet like a frightened cabrito.
    I ran to the window and looked afuera,
    And who in the world do you think that it era?
    Saint Nick in a sleigh and a big red sombrero
    Came dashing along like a crazy bombero.
    And pulling his sleigh instead of venados
    Were eight little burros approaching velados.
    I watched as they came and this quaint little hombre
    Was shouting and whistling and calling by nombre:
    “Ay Pancho, ay Pepe, ay Cuco, ay Beto,
    Ay Chato, ay Chopo, Macuco y Nieto!”
    Then standing erect with his hands on his pecho
    He flew to the top of our very own techo.
    With his round little belly like a bowl of jalea,
    He struggled to squeeze down our old chiminea.
    Then huffing and puffing at last in our sala,
    With soot smeared all over his red suit de gala,
    He filled all the stockings with lovely regalos –
    For none of the ninos had been muy malos.
    Then chuckling aloud, seeming muy contento,
    He turned like a flash and was gone like the viento.
    And I heard him exclaim, and this is verdad,
    Merry Christmas to all, y Feliz Navidad!

    And a merry Christmas to all at YSaC. Thank you all for making my days a bit brighter………
