I'm dreaming of a brown Christmas...

Seriously. This is not a part of the country where we often get snow on Christmas. (We're more likely to get ice, actually.) So, it's not exactly a cherished, long-standing tradition. So, why, why, WHY do perfectly rational adults get all misty-eyed and dreamy about the thought of a "white Christmas"?

Here's what a white Christmas in this part of the country actually entails: people getting stranded in airports trying to get to their loved ones, people getting stranded on roadways trying to get to their loved ones (and worst case scenario, dying in accidents on those roadways), people giving up and staying home instead of trying to be with their loved ones, Christmas Eve church services cancelled--and all for a little bit of white stuff on the ground for a day or two? It never sticks around long here, and it's supposed to be be sunny again over the weekend, so...why is this something to long for, again?

It just strikes me as immensely selfish to WISH for that, just because YOU'RE tucked securely inside with YOUR loved ones. What about the rest of us? You want "White Christmas," watch a movie!

Wow....two posts from you in less than a week? Now you're showing me up and I need to get on the ball.

I never wish for a white Christmas either. The entire city of Atlanta shuts down if we get a dusting.

That's the spirit!

We were snowed in last Christmas, and it was one of my favorite holidays in ages because I didn't have to cook. Well, I had to cook, just not for a bunch of people. My guests are set to arrive in less than six hours, which is why I'm sitting here reading blogs.

Merry Christmas!

Since I live in Minnesota, we get a White Christmas regardless of if I want it or not. So I totally get what you are saying here. That is selfish. We had a horrible storm here and a lot of people I know ended up having to cancel their plans.

December 23, Liz? December 23 is your latest post?? Here I was thinking I'd better pop over and catch up on whatever I've missed while I've been a lazy blog reader lately, and it turns out I've missed nothing! ;-) Hope all is well.

Also, that sort of mixed compliment comment from Anonymous you've got there? I got the EXACT SAME COMMENT on my blog. Here I was all flattered someone thought my blog kept getting better and better, but apparently he or she was confusing me with you. Sigh.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

I came by to see if you've updated (ahem) but instead I got some great investing advice!

I'm going to hurry up and go to so I can give $500 of my hard earned money to a possible ponzy [sic] scheme and hopefully I'll be one of those rare people who actually earn 2%! I wish I knew who wrote this awesome comment so I could hire them to be my marketer for some future business I might some day have. Wait a minute.....if I make enough off the "ponzy" scheme, maybe I WOULD have enough money to start my own business. This is so exciting!!!!

(Please don't sit on it.)

And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)

Hey, Anonymous said the exact same thing to me! I'm beginning to doubt his sincerity.
