Have a Better Year

Snowflakes

Another year has passed us by,
And this one uglier than most,
So now it’s time for you and I
To cheer its ending with a toast.

 

Well.  That was…not a great year, was it?

How to ensure 2017 is a better one?  Throw some salt, do a dance, will it unto the cosmos?

Maybe just resolve to be as good as we can be and hope for the best?

Celebrate tonight if you can, let 2017 be born to joy and revelry, and have a happy new year.

Have a Better Christmas

Sick face

 

After managing somehow to stave it off the entire season, I have finally taken grossly ill just in time for Christmas.  Because 2016, I guess.

So, have a much better Christmas than me, everyone!

Speaking of Reindeer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  But it’s just not quite complete without reminding everyone to go check out some weirdtastic Finnish reindeer drama:

 

Niko 2Reindeer Drama

You can’t always strike gold when absently perusing Netflix, but sometimes, you might strike…reindeer?

Don’t strike reindeer, though.  That’s terribly rude.

After seeing the second movie, tracking down the first became a necessity.

It does not disappoint.

Glory in their madness, and have a happy new year!

Shop ’til You Don’t

BUY ALL OF THE CHRISTMAS

 

Christmas shopping is hard, man.

Well, the shopping part is kind of fun, in a festive tradition-y sort of way.

It’s the ideas – those are hard.  You’re on the spot, and no matter how well you know some people, when tasked to produce a single, paltry thought as to something – anything – they might enjoy or find useful, the best you can come up with is “uhhhhhh…

You know how it is.

But when you do find that perfect something – that’s the stuff, right there.  Yeah.  Then you take a few minutes to nod in self-congratulation, because you deserve it.  Good job, you.

I think I’m about halfway done.  That’s about…I’d say…around 50% less done than I’d like to be.  This year’s been trickier than others for some reason.  I think I just left my creativity in a box somewhere while moving, and still haven’t unpacked it yet.

Need to find that stuff.  Then I can get back to nodding.

Christmas Time is Reindeer Time (Probably)

Looking for some classic Christmas entertainment to liven up the holidays?  Of course not – you can find that anywhere.

Looking for some crazy Christmas entertainment to crazy up the holidays?  Well, then, might I prescribe a double dose of Finnish reindeer drama?

Behold the magical insanity that are these films:

They really do need to make more of these (if for no other reason than these reviews are always bringing in web traffic…  (>^-‘)> ).  Get on it, Finland!

And to the rest of you, have a wonderful Christmas!
