Post Christmas wrapup.

Well, back from my latest trip, saw the folks and all the siblings, Their kids and spouses. Got to see my Grandma and that was awesome. She seems in much better spirits than when I saw her last. One weird thing no one bothered to ask what I was doing, or if i was seeing anyone. So since they didn't I just mentioned E like over and over. If they can't get the hint than fuck'em. I even said he had a key to the house and even that didn't provoke a response! You'd think they'd care a little : \

The gift were a bit slim this year, I did get a super cool ball clock from my sister. I've always wanted one but never shelled out the money for it.
E and I kept the gifts simple this year, I got jello shots and some time with him, he got a stocking and stuff. yes I'd like to do more for him but I really don't want to push it. Oh well his birthday isn't too far away.

I did get myself one gift, okay probably a few but the one that stands out is the first season of Freakazoid on DVD. I was at the store shopping and found out it had been released and had to snatch it up. Sweet, sweet animated madness!

All right blog readers talk to you later, hope you had a good Christmas! Now onto New Years, all I'm going to say is I'm looking for a hotel room with a jacuzzi!

So much for Capitalism...

Mumbai, and Muslim terrorism

Pretty much sums up my views too.

Winston Churchill 1899:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

“The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

“A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it.

“No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Not much has changed...
