i don’t like holidays.
just kidding. i hate holidays.
my mind can not comprehend the reason why people feel the need to step out of their comfortable homes and rally together in small areas so that they can no longer hear each other talk or breath a dose of oxygen.
i can not accept the way people clog up my favorite places to be in, how much of a displeasure it is to drive during these periods, or how every place i turn to i hear music and messages broadcasting “the message of love”, or “the spirit of the holidays”, trying to force their synthetic euphoria down into my unwilling soul.
why is it so hard to find a quiet place to rest?
why is it so hard to find a moment of comfort?
why does everyone else have to smile all of the time?
why do they have to act so happy?
as far as i know, the only spirit i want comes in a glass with ice…
…shaken, not stirred.

it’s official. getting women to start shopping in your market is profitable.
(*Twilight is also probably the most profitable of all of the 2008 movies that have reached the $150m mark)

Over a decade and a half ago, a young, curly-haired boy with a thin frame first put his feet on the green turf of Old Trafford, coming on as a substitute for one of his boyhood heroes. He went on to mark his debut for his team with the winning goal in their local derby, paving the way for himself to make a permanent mark on the club as one of its all-time heroes.
There cannot be enough praise for Ryan Giggs. Ever since making his name as the captain of that batch of Fergie’s Fledglings that won the 1992 FA Youth Cup, he has made the left wing his own. Sure, his pace was deadly fast, but his dribbling skills were phenomenal – the Welshman did not just run with the ball, he glided.
Giggs is ball technique exemplified. Even his tackles, while rare, drew the ball magnetically to his feet. On his day, he was virtually unplayable, his talent best summarized by that 1999 FA Cup solo goal against Arsenal.
But that was then. This is now. Read More »
