Ok so I’m going to be serious for a change,

I know I didn’t think I had it in me either but here goes.

Christmas a time of year I hate, yes yes I’m a horrible person and a Grinch and blah blah blah.

But this is why I hate it, first of all living in Australia I’m more likely to have a Christmas so hot i cant walk out side without bursting into flames, and yet I still have to put up with fake snow men, fat men in huge coats and fake snow spray all over the place.

Now the fake cold while I burn is not the only thing that annoys me but what has winter to do with christmas well yes it was once the winter solstice but that’s forgotten long ago,  hmm family friends, giving, kindness? no they can all be any time of year. how bout the birth of christ the thing it’s named after and should be all about? no-no talk of snow or fat jolly men. that is also part of my gripe with christmas people who winge christmas is too commercial then talk of santa or frosty or other things invented to sell poor quality junk to fools in the name of christmas cheer.

Now to stop this being a spiteful crack at all you hold dear( I’ll leave that for my normal entries) here is what I like about christmas

Now I would like to say spending time with family but since I didn’t last year and wont again this year I can’t really. Likewise friends I doubt I’ll see many of you over christmas not cause i don’t like you (except those of you I don’t like) but it is one of the few times of year that Christ gets a look in and it’s not because of some nut job or some disturbed priest, but because God sent his son to earth to save all humanity,one of the most remarkable things ever done. and something that should never, but some how seems to, get  lost in the hustle and junk that has attacked christmas.

so here’s my reminder of why christmas sucks but why it should be the best time of year.

 

Now new years the time of year you get drunk, spend all your money and start the new year broke, hung over and missing half your car.

it sucks too yep you guessed it.

so happy holidays!


Here we go again this time with basketball, but with only five men to choose we will make it a little more interesting,

There will be the normal best/most interesting players ever as seen by me but also I shall give you the best fictional characters and the position they would play.

So for the all-star team…

f) Andrew Bogut, The Aussie machine needed to put an australian in the team.

f)  LeBron James, 7 time all-star among so many other awards and teams.

c) Shaquille O’Neal, the shaq attack with a 20 year career and 15 all-star selections one of the most intimidating players ever.

g) Kobe Bryant, has won too many awards and all-star teams to mention a modern great.

g) Micheal Jordan, everybody wants to be like mike, the man who was basketball despite too many retirements/comebacks.

and now for some fun and their competion.

f) Mr Fantastic, may be incredibly boring but stretch arms and legs would make him a force to be reckoned with.

f) The Invisible Man, you can’t defend what you can’t see.

c) Frankenstein, the original was taller stronger faster more flexible and just better than everyone else.

g) Teen wolf, you all saw how good he was in the movie he would be unstoppable.

g) Bulls-eye, the dare-devil villain never misses a throw would be the perfect shot from anywhere on the court.
