Christmas time, again!

Well, here we are, Christmas time again.

My wife has made a Christmas cake, we have several bottles of Champagne laid in and some bottles of red wine, some white, some beers and lagers, some fruit juices and cordials and plenty of Cola and lemonade. We are expecting guests for our Christmas celebrations.

We also have a Christmas pudding, some Paski Sir Ewe's milk cheese (to die for!) fromCroatia and all the makings of a Christmas feast.

We will be making contributions to charities that look after the homeless in our town. Not everyone is as fortunate as us and we all need to do just a little bit to help alleviate the suffering of others. And in that way we can ensure that there is some Christ in Christmas.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, folks!

Your Christmas sounds divine. Please tell me what's in your wife's Christmas cake.

Dried mixed fruits, butter, wholemeal flour, eggs, and my Cognac! :oD

The cake sounds exquisite.

I got a look at Bridget's blog, which is fairly new. (I was the topic of one of her blogs! I'm freaking famous! She's either the looniest creature on the planet as in even kookier than that nutcase on Dr. Phil or she's really funny. My brother is sure she's not for real. My parents think she is for real. My dad thinks she is dangerous and that I need to stay away from her. My mom thinks she's nuts but not dangerous to anyone but herself and her kids. She's probably pouring hot sauce in her children's mouths and making them take freezing showers as I type.
Here's her blog address:

God, can't you just see the whole freaking family out in the backyard buring Jospeh Smith's damn birthday cake? The neighbors in their apartment complex probably think they're making animal or human sacrifices and are probably terrified of the lot of them. Come to think of it, if my dad is correct, when they're not burying Joseph Smith's birthday cake, mabe they are making human sacrifices. I would really like to have a bit of fun with this person, but my dad says I can't contact her although I can respond to her if she posts anything on my site.

Here's the comment I left on her blog

Oh. You mean the Mormon woman who mistook THIS command from Jesus "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."

For "Blessed are those who give their little ones cold showers and use very hot pepper sauce in their mouths as a method of correction"?

They are not even close, are they?

Listen, here's a tip for you. I am considerably older than you, and with those extra years, has come considerable experience and some wisdom.

I saw the video Mrs Beagley caused to be made. It showed her to be an out of control parent using ugly, out of control methods to discipline a child. She may well not be a bad person, but she WAS doing bad things.

Do not, please, use her as a role model. In some jurisdictions the use of hot pepper sauce by Mormon women to discipline children has resulted in jail time.

Grear response, Matt! I can go to her site to read, just not to post. She is a piece of work.

AlexisAR said...

Matt, i took a chance that Dad will be either too busy or buzzed to check up on my Internet activity, or maybe will be filled with the spirit of Christmas, and will not kill me for posting on Proud Mormom Nom or whatever her name is's website. I just told her she's either bat-shit crazy or vey funny but I don't know which.

Matt said...

The cake is exquisite. I am eating a piece whilst drinking some Old Speckled Hen ale. I might then drink a bottle of Brewdog Punk IPA. Both of which I can heartily recommend to your dad!

I'll give your recommendation to my dad. He's easier to tolerate if he's buzzed.

I'm buzzed on Phenergan/codeine cough syrup right now. it doesn't actually help croup. It merely makes me not care that I have croup.

I have to get a steroid injection before I go to sleep. I HATE injections!
