1:26 am
flosey

1:26 am
SirDemon

I'm guessing a signature of the artist wasnt on the print, hehe

Here is the common Festivus definition for those who wondered: Festivus is an annual holiday invented in 1966 by Dan O’Keefe, and introduced to popular culture by O'Keefe's son, Daniel on December 18, 1997 in the Seinfeld episode "The Strike".[1] The holiday is celebrated each year on December 23, but many people celebrate it other times, often to avoid the holiday rush,[1] and it consists of untraditional practices such as wrestling the household head to the floor, there pinning him, or the "Airing of Grievances" in which each person tells each and everyone else all the ways they've disappointed him/her over the past year, and after a Festivus dinner, the "Feats of Strength" are performed.

An aluminum pole is generally used in lieu of a Christmas tree or other holiday decoration, shedding holiday materialism (according to O'Keefe it was the only tradition that was made up by the show’s writers, everything else was taken directly from his family celebrations).[2]

Many people, influenced or inspired by Seinfeld, now celebrate the holiday, in varying degrees of seriousness. Some do it religiously; others do it with good humor in their respect to the series
1:49 am

the TV Squad blog and boingboing.com have info on festivus also.

Jeepers Creepers
3:24 am
dezyon

oh well that is very crappy, not even crappy funny
3:26 am
snppngtrtle

He swears the first 45 minutes are great, but I suspect that means the rest of it is awful.
3:26 am
dezyon

it's generally pretty awful imo - not suspenseful, not a strong story - it does start with promise but fades quickly
3:27 am
dezyon

teen flick
3:29 am
dezyon

good excuse for a snuggle on the lounge tho
3:29 am
snppngtrtle

I actually like the really really terrible ones on rare occasions, but this seems pretty lame.
3:29 am
snppngtrtle

Yeah totally!
3:30 am
dezyon

yeah this one tries hard but gets no where -- its not lame enuff for cult status like evil dead
3:30 am
snppngtrtle

Ooooh love Evil Dead!
3:30 am
snppngtrtle

And Army of Darkness of course.
3:30 am
dezyon

3:31 am
dezyon

even the games were cool
3:31 am
snppngtrtle

It's just hilarious. The first one is pretty bad, but 2 and 3 are golden.
3:32 am
dezyon

i love them too - some of the best horror/comedies ever made
3:32 am

The go6/24 is very fitting for this conversation.

3:49 am
dezyon

thats wot i told myself too andree...i now have 80 to go
3:49 am
Angb

Evening all. I'm with you Andree. Had a hectic two days. Just come back from a 10 course Chinese banquet.
3:50 am
sprite

sounds like fun, Angb
3:50 am
Andree

ymmy angb
3:50 am
Angb

If you like eating ... lovely food but.
3:51 am
herinfernallady

hey sprite i went to the web site and it sounds fun. Oh ANg yummy
3:51 am
Andree

dez, not everyone is as slow as me
3:51 am
Angb

After 2 Xmas meals on Xmas day, the banquet on Boxing Day does me in.
3:51 am
Angb

Unfortunately the jelly fish was too chewy tonite ... my favourite
3:52 am
snppngtrtle

"Ten course Chinses banquet" are possibly the loveliest I have ever heard
3:52 am
sprite

Good Chinese food is always so beautiful too :)
Yes, it is fun, lady. I am just a mom and therefore a little scared when my babies do things like that, lol. Their dad is very good in pushing their limits.
3:52 am
herinfernallady

jelly fish?
3:52 am
snppngtrtle

*loveliest words
3:52 am
dezyon

cant say i have eaten jellyfish - sounds kinda yucky
3:52 am
snppngtrtle

Darn it. Losing the ability to type here
3:52 am
herinfernallady

We have nothing like that around us sprite
3:52 am
Andree

yes it does get too much all at once, we just had lovely ham sandwiches, cherries and figs and mangos
3:53 am
Angb

Sounds sensible Andree - with a touch of Aussie sunshine foods
3:53 am
herinfernallady

Ang what do you mean Jelly Fish?
3:54 am
Andree

a chinese banquet wasn't on offer angb
3:54 am
Angb

Jelly fish - like the things that sting you in the sea ... But they cook them and do it in chille
3:54 am
Andree

I like jellyfish, learnt to like lots of strange stuff as we lived in asia 8 years
3:55 am
herinfernallady

oh ok my partner hadn;t heard off it thats why i asked
3:55 am
herinfernallady

We had chilli squid the other night and it was delise
3:55 am
Andree

the only thing I cannot eat at a banquet is the sharks fin soup, hate it
3:56 am
snppngtrtle

Sounds better than lutefisk. That's sort of a jelly fish.
3:56 am
Angb

They do cut them into strips so it doesn't look like a jelly fish. I have never tried chilli squid. Sounds real nice.
3:56 am
herinfernallady

It is we went to this vietnamese resturant and they sereved garlic beef and chillied squid it was great and it was cheap too
3:57 am
Angb

Some vietnamese food is similar to chinese food - well the chinese food I am used to - from the south of China
3:58 am
Angb

My ma-in-law is a superb cook - so sometime the chinese banquets are n't up to her standard! Family dinners take on a new meaning.
3:58 am
Angb

And for dessert was sweet red bean sauce which is another thing I love
3:59 am
Angb

I don't like this grid.
4:00 am
Andree

thats another thing I never learnt to like, what passes for dessert
4:00 am
herinfernallady

This is the resturant we go to
http://www.hoatran.com.au/ and it does have a cafe next door that rocks
4:00 am
Andree

except coconut icecream
4:01 am
Angb

The chinese go made on jelly ... with heaps of gelatine in. YUCK. On Xmas day - sister in law served on normal jelly with 3 tsps in ... and gross colours.
4:01 am
Andree

I can't say I am enjoying it either angb
4:01 am
sprite

am off, have a great time, all of you. CU later
4:01 am
Angb

See ya sprite - have fun

4:02 am
Atalante

4:02 am
Andree

bye sprite, don't sit and worry I am sure the kids will have a great time
4:02 am
herinfernallady

Ang this restuarant has the 3 colour bean jelly with coconut milk it makes you go silly with the colours
4:02 am
Angb

Grandad gave my boys a quad bike for Xmas - LOL - I know how Sprite feels
4:03 am
herinfernallady

this grid is a bad grid
4:03 am
Angb

Yes, her ... to the jelly and the grid.
4:03 am
herinfernallady

i dont find it appealing but the partner loves it
4:04 am
herinfernallady

brb dinner check
4:04 am
Angb

I normally work thru the grid, and try to get 1/2 of each box ... even this is proving difficult tonite.
4:04 am
Angb

Has all this talk made you hungry her?
4:05 am
Angb

The "e"s are in the wrong places
4:06 am
Andree

everything in the wrong place, a grid this size usually the first at least 200 flow, not this one
4:07 am
dezyon

or6/24 please?
4:07 am
Andree

I have 166 words and have been here ages

6:09 am
Alien

understandable. I like CSI, NCIS and stuff like that.
6:10 am
herinfernallady

I love NCSI and abbey is so cute. Denozo used to be Logan in DarkAngel and Jessica Alba was his tv girlfriend so its funy when he says ' id be more likely to score with Jessica Alba than solve this case'
6:11 am
Alien

ha ha, I remember thinking that was funny too. It's on tonight! : )
6:12 am
herinfernallady

oh i wish we didn't have so much shite on tv so we are stuck with dvds

6:14 am
herinfernallady

i hate house i used to be good but when he called a women a bitch its issed me off so i didn't watch it
6:17 am
Alien

I still love the show. It's a love-hate relationship I guess. He is an ass, but real.
6:18 am
herinfernallady

i guess i used to like it but i don't anymore
6:19 am
Alien

the thing about TV shows is they all start off really good, then after a few seasons, the plot gets lame.
6:20 am
herinfernallady

look At Lost Crappy now after one season. I get the shows i realy love on dvd so i don't have to put up with stuff abouts from tv
6:20 am

6:21 am
Alien

hello merk!
6:23 am
herinfernallady

Alien our channel 9 which broadcasts it is so shite that it stuffs it up all the time. The tv channel took off Third Watch and put it back on half way throught the final season so you can see why i watch dvds
6:25 am
Alien

good point. too bad they are so spendy! It's all a conspiracy.

Hi Alien. Just noticed that you are another quilter. So good to see a younger person taking it up and getting so much pleasure from it. It is very addictive but oh so very satisfying when you have createwd

M.P.

Hi, everbody. I don't have any words. Just one question about Lickety's. What is the second letter there for? The first letter starts the word, but what does the second letter do, and where in the word does it appear?
6:54 am
Alien

it's more addicting when you know you made something by hand.
6:55 am
mattygroves

Merry Christmas all - I was too busy cooking and stuffing my face to login yesterday. Big grid - worth looking?
6:55 am
Alien

the second letter is the second letter of the word.
6:55 am
hydra

hydra my sewing teacher at school gave up on me. I was hopeless. Like so many things, I developed a taste for it later and like so many other things, when you are not forced to do it you enjoy it so much more and yes, it does take patience but that is something I have in bucket loads.

Interesting use of the word, faerie (for those that didn't know, a 'fag' is a cigarette.) I was a Camp Fire Girl and we had to memorize this pledge: "As faggots are brought from the forrest, firmly held by the sinews which bind them ...." Believe me, my mom was going to wash my mouth out with soap the first time I recited it!
8:24 am

LOL Ch - I've never heard that but I will memorize it :)

faggots in this country are savoury meat balls!!!

mo - they are also bundles of small sticks for a fire here in UK. Not often seen or heard of now since the Clean Air Act.
8:25 am
ch1212

Really mo? Didn't know that! It's like the word "Gay", whose meaning has also altered over time. Watched Hugh Jackman in "Oklahoma" and there's a line about "she's a gay old gal" which made my husband laugh.

Mo - I didn't dare Google 'fag' or 'faggot' - Lord knows what sites would have appeared. I've just looked in my (proper paper) Brewer's Phrase & Fable Dictionary and found a few more definitions.
8:37 am
mo

crikey...not more!!
8:39 am
Jacula

A 'fag' is also the schoolboy 'servant' at public school. I did know that. Fag-end = a ciggie stub but also the remaining end of a piece of coarse cloth & lots of other things. 'To much fag' = too much trouble or effort. Faggot = a hireling who took the place of another at the muster of a regiment. 'Old faggot' = dreary old woman.
8:39 am
Jacula

There's more...
8:40 am
ch1212

Wow -- I had no idea! Thanks, Jac
8:41 am
mo

i have heard of those except the hireling one.
8:41 am
ch1212

brb
8:42 am
Jacula

'Faggot votes' = votes obtained by the nominal transfer of property to individuals in the days when this was a necessary qualification for voting rights - minimum being a forty shilling freehold. The 'faggot' being a bundle of property divided into small lots.
8:43 am
mo

we live and learn!!! thanks Jacula
8:44 am
Jacula

Oh, and apparently, in the context of the 'faggot' as a bundle of kindling sticks - in the days when heretics were burned at the stake, an embroidered representation of a faggot was worn on the arm by those who recanted, thus showing what they merited but had narrowly escaped.
8:44 am
Jacula

That's it!

TnC - Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. It falls on December 26th, which is also St. Stephen's Day.

St. Stephen was a little known saint who achieved eternal fame by being the first Christian to be martyred for his faith, and he met his death by stoning.

Boxing Day is so called because on this day it was the customary for tradesmen to collect their Christmas boxes or gifts in return for good service throughout the year. Also, it included giving money and other gifts to charitable institutions, and the needy.

The holiday may date from as early as the Middle Ages, but the exact origin is not known. It may have begun with the Lords and Ladies of England, who gave Christmas boxes/gifts to their servants on December 26, or maybe by priests, who opened the church's alms (charity boxes), and distributed the contents to the poor and needy.

In England, this day has become part of the celebrations, of being with family.

A day to visit other relations, and to have a rest from the day before, to play fun games. Some families, buy a new game each year, but still bring out the old favourites :-)

For some it is good to have the 2 days, as on one of the days you can visit with your parents, and the other day your inlaws :-)

St Stephen is the patron saint of horses, so Boxing Day became associated with horse-racing and hunting. Other sports are also held on this day like football and rugby.

Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day is the Christmas season for us here in England.

I feel so helpless, the only thing stopping me from leaving is lack of money, and that's the only thing I can't get hold of, I'm sure that if I could get out of here the rest would fall into place, I would have family around me, a new chance with new opportunities, but I can't get there cos I can't bloody pay for it
4:51 pm

I hate money, it is so stupid and ridiculous that everything in life depends on it

I am hoping for you every minute. I feel so bad for you in that situation. I have to agree about the money thing -- why can't you just think "if you give you shall recieve"?

Hi Gwen
4:55 pm
M.P.

This whole thing with the money is so stupid! I think that "if you give, you shall recieve" might work, the only problem is that there are so many people who are greedy and wouldn't only take what they needed ... and then there are luxuries that would have to be divied ... but that could end the problems of hunger, I guess. America might have to give up some food, though.

6:57 pm
Natasha

I'm confident that I will Pam, but I feel like I need to spend some more time by myself first.
6:58 pm
Jacula

Nat - That is very true. The time I spent by myself (apart from being a single mum, that is) ws valuable and healing over the years.
6:58 pm

That makes sense, Natasha. and jac
6:59 pm
pam

Being alone has been and will continue to be therapeutic...
6:59 pm

that's good to hear Jac, sometimes I worry that I'm just avoiding the risk of dating again. it feels right for me though.
6:59 pm
Jacula

Obviously, I panicked every now and then, tried to find love... wasn't ready. Love did actually turn up on my doorstep when I wasn't looking for it and wasn't feeling needy. Life has a way of working out.
