Happy Holidays




No more posts until next week. Feel free to peruse our abundant archives if you need a fix (link in sidebar).

I leave you with my very own Christmas list. I've been pretty naughty this year, so this is more like my wish list in a perfect world. A boy can dream.

  • More time to play with my child
  • More time to read all your blogs
  • A long winter's nap (I'm thinking at least two weeks)
  • Time to redesign this fugly blog
  • A haircut
  • More comments on posts (preferably non-anonymous, but I'm not picky)
  • A week where I don't have to write anything
  • To see a movie that doesn't have talking animals in it
  • A Red Ryder BB gun (for all the *#$@! crows around here)
  • A massage (the legal kind)
  • One full day of absolute quiet
  • Time to read The Road, Band Of Brothers, Bird By Bird, and the other 7 books that have sat on my bedside table for the last year
  • To make money on this blog so I can pay people to contribute
  • Inspiration
  • To help all the hurting people I know stop hurting (including a few FOLOTDs).

I hope everyone has a safe and satisfying holiday. Thank you all for reading LOTD.

  10. You'll shoot your eye out with that thing.

    I noticed you don't have a leg lamp on your list. You must already have one.

  11. Nice list. I hear you on the books. Oy.

    But hey, another year I get to say Merry Christmas to YOU? Lucky me. So yes. Merry Christmas to you, and your girls. ♥

  13. Looking forward to another year of LOTD! Seriously, my favorite blog, and it's brightened the bleak landscape of the internets for me! Thanks for being so funny! Have good Christmas!

  14. All the best to you and your fam, Cary...thanks for making me laugh every day (that goes for your little LOTD elves too)! I am guilty of not commenting as often as I should...I'll make a resolution to do a better job in 2011!

  15. Merry Christmas, from one of your first FOLOTD whom you've never met in person.

  16. To see a movie without talking animals. Aaah, I remember those days!

    Happy Holidays, Cary. I hope that every one of these wishes come true, you deserve it!

  17. Thanks for this great blog...! I apologize for never commenting...but please know your daily efforts are ALWAYS appreciated.

  18. You have no idea how your blog can brighten my day when I feel like hiding in a hole. I come here instead and it always gives me a boost! Sorta like speed for the mind. I don't need to do drugs, I get the same effect from just standing up fast or reading your blog. Thx for all your hard work!!

    Merry Christmas and have a great week off...

  20. Have a lovely holiday with your beautiful, and patient-as-hell, girls! :D Thanks for another mirth-filled year courtesy of your brain, mucho appreciato. If you figure out the "one day of absolute quiet" please send me the formula, I need one of those too. Here's to a bright and shiny 2011. :)

  21. Red Ryder BB Gun - Academy Sports for $29.99. I was wondering if my 4 year old was too young to get this for Christmas, but decided he wasn't when a family bought their one year old a shotgun. I love living in Alabama. Roll Tide!

  22. Well, I'm afraid I'm not always great about commenting, but count me among the souls who follows along every day and enjoys LOTD immensely. Thank you for that!!

  23. Your last wish is very sweet (yes...I said it...SWEET!). And a fine wish, for sure. I'm adding to my list. Some folks in my life right now are hurting pretty badly, and I'm not doing all that great myself, but my, how we keep trudging along. So, to all my fellow FOLOTD...I wish each of you a good 2011. Be kind to each other; be kind to animals & other helpless creatures. Be kind to yourselves. Rack up that good karma!

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a great list...a few of those wishes would be on mine too. Enjoy the time off!

  25. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Cary! Thanks for another year of laughs, giggles, and OMG's :)

  26. I have a lot to be grateful for, and the enjoyment I get from LOTD and all y'all is right up there. My stupid work network won't let me comment, but I'm there reading every day and laughing along.
    I could really use more time to myself, but I've learned to be careful what I wish for... last year I was unemployed and had too much - it's all in how ya look at it!
    Best Wishes to all, and bless us every one.

  27. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well. I read your blog daily and LOVE it. I have you marked in the "expand your mind" category. I read every comment, too, and LMAO at most all. I'm intimidated by your readers, yet strangely feel like a family member, you know, a red headed step-child of sorts. Anyhow, may all your wishes come true!

  28. Deb, don't be intimidated! We don't bite, unless you ask us nicely. ;-)

    Happy Christmas to all y'all!

  29. Yeah, c'mon in Deb...we're all pretty friendly here, and Frank makes a mean margarita.

    C, hope you and your ladies had a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the rest of your holiday.

  31. Oh, Cary Jane, I hope you had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed your time with your lovely ladies. You were truly missed, as LOTD has become a very vital part of my existence. Keep on, keepin' on, man! You are deeply appreciated. Looking forward to next year and your upcoming book (with Bev). And maybe a haircut, too.

  32. Happy belated Christmas, it's a wonderful and selfless list. Oh, and it should be noted that all massages START as legal massages...

    Oh, and I'm just assuming I already have permission to pimp my annual Holiday Trivia Contest. There are prizes, GOOD prizes. Note, though, the link is potentially NSFW. Well, it's safe, but it might show a lack of decorum on your part if you leave it up.

    I'll post a 'SFW' version later today.

  33. Deb,
    That you would LYAO at every comment shows you are a woman of distinction. Don't be shy. The comments are the sauce that pulls the LOTD meal together! Chime in from time-to-time!

    More Tequila in mine, Frank. That's the ticket.

  34. Wasn't there talk of that Breville Pie Maker thing in one of these LOTD comment threads? I got one for Christmas, and am trying to decide if I want to keep it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Frank, without doing any sort of research on it I thought that was something he posted on FB, then a few people chimed in about really wanting one. Possibly Melissa O? Certainly familiar, as I sort of want one, too.

  36. {{{meaningless stammering}}}

    HOW was I not aware of this pie maker? It's a conspiracy, because no one person could have kept this information from me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So it's like a foreman grill for pies! Wow!

  38. According to posts on EBay, Elliot, you'll have to wait until April if you want to get one from Williams-Sonoma, as they're out of stock.

  39. Bird by Bird is a great book! And here's a comment for you, as well, to grant your wish. I've never commented before, but I enjoy your blog!
