It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens. Moms cookin chicken and collared greens.
Run DMC just knew how to make the Christmas rap songs go down smooth.

Again, as a recurring and uninteresting theme, I don't have much
to say except I love Sarah a lot. She got me a new Fender Telecaster
for Christmas and I didn't even see it coming. What an amazing wife.
She is so supportive at every turn that I wish every relationship could
have what I have with her; imperfect and ridiculous...but beautiful.

Life Aquatic hits the screen in T-minus two days and I'm gonna be
all over that like Todd on a spring roll...or Adam on a bottle of Aquavit...
or Jonny on a bottle of malt liquor. Nice work boys. Nice damn work.

Christmas is a time of capitalism, greed and mass monetary expenditure.
Who's got time for the birth of the son of God, really?

Not much to say for the moment. I guess I really shouldn't
write if I don't have much to say but ah, what the hell.
I just expunged my being into a new None blog. Be sure
to check out his deal:

Just a thought:
You know what I love about Christians? I love that we expect
everyone else in the world to come out of their comfort zones
to meet with us (i.e. come out to a 'church' service, listen to
a gospel presentation, etc.) but we never want to come out
of OUR comfort zones into their worlds. We want it all man.
It's like Christians are a sports team that never wants to play
an away game! We always want to play against other teams
on our home turf? What the hell is wrong with us?!?!?

I think this dude Jared I know once said it best; if we aren't
prepared to get down on our hands and knees and scrub on
the floors with our friends and their problems, then we are
only distancing ourselves from everyone else and dragging
Jesus name through the mud and shit.

It doesn't matter HOW GOOD something is. No one wants
to hear about ANYTHING if its rammed down their throat.
Or if it is presented from the perspective of being better than
others. So many people are way too hung up on appearance
rather than being hung up on God. The want the shiny happy
'i have it all together' look. But who out there is really;
a. shiny
b. happy
c. all together

That's all. Christmas coming. Adam, keep the egg nog cold
for my aquiescent return to the Nation's capital where we
will dine and drink like kings.

Hey kids! Sometimes you just want to sound like Krusty the
Clown. So as I sit here, looming over the ominous keys of the keyboard
that make the ominous, gloomy music that is my blog, I can't really
think of too much that is interesting to say. I let the ice clink inside the
glass of my freshly poured rye and ginger, but still, nothing comes.

I don't really like St. Catharines too much and I gotta tell ya some of
None's thoughts can quickly become my own. Fudgenut. It's easy to
let yourself slide into a certain framework of thinking. It's also super
easy to always ALWAYS see the negative side of things. It takes
almost zero time and talent to observe the negative in a certain
situation, because hey, let's face it, life often sucks. What takes the
real work and sweat and fatigue in this life is to see the good and
the upside of things when cancer is near or to retain hope when your
best friend from childhood just got blown to shat with a grenade
in a war that you don't even give a damn about.

But God shows up, I find, and the good does come around. I just
have to look for it. This past week I had an awesome chat with some
of my realest of real homies. We sat in a pub, eating various bangers,
mash, quesadillas and drank some frothy mugs of ale and just talked
about life, no holds barred, no bullshit. Depression, regret, disbelief,
negativity, broken friendships and debts were on the downside but on
the upside just alot of finding love in cool places, new friends,
opportunities, road trips, planting a church that doesn't like a church,
and just living life. I say that if you cannot do this kind of thing with
your friends, you don't really have friends. And hey I don't mean you
need to talk about church because let's face it, church often sucks
and I often don't blame those who don't want to go there. It's
never been about a religion or following rules but rather about a

Well, go see a good movie and give me a report.
Todd (and Chelsea) take care in Korea and don't spice up your
bungholes too badly.
Adam, that was one of the funniest comments I've ever read.
Please refrain from making me wet myself publicly and spew
on to a computer monitor.
Charn, you're wise man. But sometimes you talk crazy! And I
love that.
Jon, stay in BC as long as you can. The dope is good there.
And to the anonymous commenter who rebutted with calling me
a 'son of a whore'...nice one. nice one.
