Dreading the Holidays? You're Not Alone!



The holiday season is a GREAT time, right? Family, friends, good tidings...and all that jazz. But there ARE certain things WE ALL dread about the holiday season.

For me, it's packing up for our annual trek to the in-laws in Maine on Christmas morning. It's always a battle between Sue & I as we load up a vehicle with 2 dogs, 2 dog crates, suitcases, gifts, and assorted other crap that we schlep 500 miles.

What is it that YOU dread about the holidays?


>>My wife's family always has to have seafood on Christmas eve. So the traditional is to eat her mother's oyster stew. Ugh. We lovingly refer to it as Christmas Snot Soup... YUCK!

>>Rocky! We typically drive to my family's house in Iowa every year for Christmas. And the worst part is getting out of the house. Getting the car packed and everyone and everything in and ready to go. Once we're on the road the stress is gone even though we have a 12 hour drive ahead of us! Merry Christmas!

>>I been dating my fiancé for 4 years and we are breaking up and I have to tell my family on Christmas because they are going to be asking where is he.

>>My uncle thinks its hilarious to get drunk and yell at all the women to Come sit on Santa's lap

>>I'm dreading my aunts in laws. Every year they think that they are better than us n just totally ignore you since you're not on their pay grade.

>>Every year at dinner a relative asks how college is it going even though I have been done with it for 5 years :)

>>"Where's the ring?" "When's the big day?" "You're not getting any younger!"

>>Not looking forward to going to my bf moms house she is a chain smoker and keeps the house at like 85 degrees feel like I need a respirator when there

>>Having to spend Christmas Eve at my boyfriends family's house ugh!!!!!

>>My mother's nasty attitude every year no matter what I messed something up wrong wrapping paper wrong turkey etc

>>been dating my fiancé for 4 years and we are breaking up and I have to tell my family on Christmas because they are going to be asking where is he.

>>Vomit. ... someone in my house always gets the stomach flu over xmas vacation

It's the Most Wonderful Prank of the Year

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife have a holiday tradition - well, sort of a tradition - with acting couple John Krasinski (from The Office) and Emily Blunt (most recently from Into The Woods).

They live across the street from one another, and for Christmas, they play pranks on each other.

This has been going on for a couple of years, and each year, the pranks get bigger and more out of control.

Watch the clip to see what Jimmy did to them last year - the thing he thought would bring the prank-feud to a conclusion.

And then watch to see watch Emily and John did to raise the bar considerably higher this year.

Nice to have that kind of money to throw away, but it is sort of fun to watch.

Please Define "Top"

Scratching my head just a little.

US Magazine put out a list yesterday of the Top 14 Celebrity Instagram Photos of 2014.
 
Six of the 14 involve the Kardashians in some way - by that calculation, they're taking up 43% of the internet, which sounds right and wrong all at the same time.

The rest of the list:
  • Jessica Simpson in a bathing suit holding a golf club
  • Macauley Culkin wearing a T-shirt with Ryan Gosling on it
  • Jessa Duggar's wedding kiss
  • Taylor Swift's 4th of July party
  • Nick & Vanessa Lachey's pregnancy announcement
  • Lauren Conrad's haircut
  • Bethenny Frankel wearing her 4-year-old's Hello Kitty PJs
The only one that really belongs - or at least makes some sense in being relevant - is the post Diem Brown's boyfriend put up after her passing, expressing his grief.

"Governor, This Is Barack Obama..."

What a fun moment.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick made his final appearance on Boston Public Radio yesterday, and got a very interesting phone call as part of his farewell.

President Barack Obama called in, identifying himself as a former resident of Somerville, a suburb of Boston.

The president spent some time in the state while a student at Harvard, and he's got a good relationship with the outgoing governor.

So why not call in?

Watch the video of the call. Seems legit to me.

Most Ridiculous Man of the Year

Here's a late-comer for the Most Ridiculous Man of the Year award.

A professional makeup artist in Manchester, England has reportedly spent about $150,000 for plastic surgery and more to look like his favorite reality TV star.

The star?

Kim Kardashian.

He's had lip fillers, laser hair removal and eyebrows tatooed on.

Take a look at the picture to see the results. And no, it is NOT Halloween. And he doesn't care what he looks like, according to The Sun, London's daily newspaper. "My look is all about the shock factor. I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done."

Good money chasing bad, folks. Especially since the guy looks more like the Octomom than the NorthWestmom.

Wrapping Up a Holiday Tradition

Darlene Love came to fame with the 1960s classic, "He's a Rebel."

But for close the three decades now, she's earned even more fame from her annual appearance on David Letterman's last show before Christmas to sing "Christmas" - aka "Baby Please Come Home."

She'll sing it one last time tonight, on Letterman's final show-before-Christmas. This time next year, Stephen Colbert will be sitting in Letterman's seat.

To get everyone in the mood, the folks at CBS put together a compilation of Darlene's appearances, blending them all together in one pretty spectacular rendition.

Enjoy - and be sure to set your DVR for tonight's performance...

Happy Holidays: Sheriff Santa

There's a guy in Missouri who gives away about $100,000 a year in $100 bills to random strangers.

This holiday season, he got a little bit of help - from the Jackson County Sheriff's Department in Kansas City.

The officers were handed a small pile of Benjamin Franklins and sent out on the street to help those who needed help.

What a terrific, feel-good story...

A Box of Poo for You

You know Cards Against Humanity, right?

The makers refer to it as "a party game for horrible people" that's "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."

On Black Friday, they made an interesting offer to folks on their website: a box of male bovine excrement for a mere $6.

They used a more guttural expression that we really shouldn't be using here...

Now, the folks at CAH report that they sold 30,000 units.

30,000 units of genuine bull crap, amounting to $180,000.

I can only imagine how popular these will be at the office Yankee Swap this year.

Now if you'll excuse me. My dog just went outside, and I'm pretty sure there's a gold mine waiting to be picked up on my lawn.

I Really Really Really Really Really Really Want This!

Dear Santa:

I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting.

But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these.

A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment.

I've been really really really really good this year too.

                                                                                                         Signed,

                                                                                                         Your Pal Mikey!

Shaking Off Hanukkah

Someone pointed out recently that there aren't any good Hanukkah songs out there.

It seems that the only choice is Adam Sandler's "Hanukkah Song," and that's not really about the holiday, just about folks who might celebrate it.

So along comes Six13, a Jewish a cappella group, and their parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."

You'll have fun, learn a little bit about the holiday, and even how to play with a dreidel.

And you might start bopping along with the tune. Win win!
