happy holidays everyone!

Postby taxico » Mon, 24 Dec 2012 4:03 pm

i'm hanging out, listening to music and drinking plenty of cold beverages while friends and family bustle about preparing tonight's dinner.

while driving through orchard earlier this afternoon, i found out the ERP gantry was NOT LIT! i was surprised and immediately drove through another 2 other gantries surrounding takashimaya (okay, the traffic was bad and i merely wanted to buy some take-away froyo so some mad driving ensued).

no ERP sounds like a good way to start and end christmas 2012. remember: DRINK RESPONSIBLY! you don't want to usher in 2013 from jail or the hospital... or both.

happy holidays, everyone! here's to a better 2013. hic!

p/s: i thank fellow forum members and the mods bearing with some of the more oddball characters (like me) in here.

I have a question. The gifts that go under the tree or the place you put them.. do you label them traditionally from whom they are? :???:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas everyone! A quick joke to celebrate the festive season:

When four of Santa's elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones, Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mom was coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress.

Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys.

So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hidden the liquor, and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritable Santa trudged to the door. He opened the door, and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't it a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"

And so began, the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas all and happy new year, although, I imagine I may find my way on here between now and new year!

Have a good one!
