New Ear's and football and complaining about the weather. But not in that order.

Ha ha, man, look at this guy! He's enraged that the weathermen were wrong. Man, I sure do think it's stupid when people complain about how the weather people get it wrong. Like they're SO STUPID or something. Like it's not the inherent unpredictability of weather, it's just that they're not trying hard enough.

Man, I also think it's stupid when people point out that December 25th was a pagan holiday, and therefore Christmas yadda yadda yadda. Heck, I don't even know the point they're trying to make. So Jesus was born in April; so what? How is that relevant? It's the celebration of his birth. Does it really matter that's it's not on the anniversary of his birth? Man, that was like two thousand years ago, what's a few months? It's the thought that counts. If people decided to celebrate MY birthday every day for the next few millennia, I don't think I would mind much if they had it be on, say, October 31st, to capitalize on all the Halloween fervor. I don't mind! For future reference, I don't mind!

Ha. Man, I hope I don't sound complainy and bitchy, cuz that's not how I'm feeling. It's more of a . . . rolling of the eyes whilst smiling and shaking my head and then walking away to talk to smart people. I mean, you know, people are stupid! And I guess will continue to be stupid in the same ways, forever.

So hey everybody, it's the last day of two -- oh oh -- two! Are you excited or what?

Hey, don't tell anybody, but the skirt I'm wearing tonight? It's the same skirt I wore for New Ear's 2000. Pff, who cares, am I right? That was THREE years ago! And I haven't gotten to wear the damn thing since! And it makes me feel like a princess! So fuckit! Boys don't remember stuff like that anyway, and the girls are my friends. So we're all good. And I bought a new top, so there.

Oh so hey you guys -- remember how I was in a Fantasy Football League? Well guess what? I AM THE WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION. Hooray! I win! Oh man, I would have said that if I had, say, bought an awesome shirt or something, "I win," but in this case it's actually applicable! I win! Ha, man, remember when we had the draft? The title of that post is "Alexander Shaun, don't let me down." Dude, his name is Shaun Alexander. HA! That seems ridiculous to me now. Man, being in that league freaking ruled. There were fourteen teams, four of us were girls. I was in last place for a long time, and Kelly was in last place for a LONG time -- she started out the season 0-5, I think. And then? ALL four girls made it to the playoffs, and it was me and Kelly in the final round. Hooray for girls paying attention and also luck helps a lot! Hooray! Man, we're also the awesome girls that actually watch football, too. Hardcore and whatnot. I learned a LOT about football and I'm better at paying attention to it and I totally appreciate blocking. I never appreciated blocking before because that's not where the ball is, but man, blocking! Blocking rules. Without blocking, you couldn't go anywhere. Seriously. Blocking is my favorite part of football, now.

I sucked a fat one at my football pool at work, though. I played every week and didn't win ONCE. And I had the worst percentage. Man. Oh well. Can't win 'em all, I guess! I'll be entering the Super Bowl fill-in-the-boxes thingie, of course. And I may go to Wing Bowl this year! I have yet to go, I had intentions of going a couple times, but things came up, but this year everything's cool and there's an after-party at Delilah's, yo.

Oh man, and playoff season! It's so sad that it's all almost over, though. So sad. And football looks great on my new big tv! Man, that's what big tv's are for, video games and sports. I'll tell you what. And DVD's too, I guess, but I don't have a DVDer. I do have a DVD, though! My mom bought my brother and I each Dress to Kill DVD's. So I have to get a DVDer. I love saying "DVDer", can you tell?

So what are you doing tonight? For the hollyday?

OH P.S. I remembered today that I had forgotten the awesomest part of all regarding the Christmas Day snow -- the first time I walked out of my parents' house? To see the snow? Swear to goodness, there were church bells playing. "Silent Night" or some shit. Man, that shit was movie, yo. To walk outside and have it be dark and snowing and churchbelling.
