Happy new year's eve eve

Thanks to the LDS church, New Year's Eve this year has been moved to tonight in some places here in Utah. Provo, specifically. They interviewed some people on the news tonight and one guy hit the nail on the head. When it was put to him that the entire rest of the world would, surprisingly, celebrate New Year's Eve on the 31st, he said "we don't live in the rest of the world here in Provo". I mean come on - what sort of a bell-end do you need to be to accept New Year's Eve a day early? The crowds must have been in the tens if what we saw on TV was representative. I doubt if there were even a hundred people there because - and this is the best part - the celebrations were largely done by 21:00. So they didn't even do it a day early - they did it 27 hours early. And the LDS church wonders why people have an odd view of them.

Saddam hanged. Which makes us....?

Quite apart from the ludicrous argument that Bush put forward that hanging Saddam would somehow be part of the solution, lets reflect for a moment to ask the burning question: we've seen to Saddam's death, which makes us better than him exactly how? Now on to the obvious comment : EVERYONE PANIC! Congratulations committees and courts of the world, and a special commendation to Bush. You've turned Saddam into a martyr. Of course there won't be any backlash for this at all - not any - nope. And to suggest there will be makes you an anti-patriotic nazi as far as the American government are concerned.

The World's Fastest Indian

We just got done watching The World's Fastest Indian. Nice story and not at all what I was expecting. If you've not seen it yet, I can recommend a rental :-)

The cat and the parents

I've got to admit I'm pleasantly surprised this year by our cat's reaction to my mum and dad being here. Last year she was a panicky neurotic mess. This year she's giving them a wide berth, but at least she's in the house with us at the same time. She curls up on her kitty furniture and walks around the house more or less in her normal routine. It used to be that she'd only have to hear mum or dad moving around and she'd bolt through the cat flap. Now she sits curiously watching and making sure she has a couple of escape routes, but the running and hiding is much less evident. Our cat is so cool :-)

Merry Christmas

Christmas comes but once a year. Jeebus that's a lot of turkey. *burp*
