Have a very very very merry Christmas, and a happy happy happy holiday!!


Well, it's that dreaded and much loved time of year again. Hoping everyone does and gets just what they want this year.

Tonight is good ole' Christmas Eve. To me, Christmas Eve is the weirdest God damn day on the calendar. I think it's because it drives everyone up the fucking wall knowing that the "Day of all Days" is in a few short hours. And some people, no matter how many months in advance they have planned, the one thing that they forgot/didn't have time to do, just totally ruins everything for them. My mother and partner included.

Another reason why I think it's weird, is that for as much of a traditional Holiday it is, I have never had a similar Christmas Eve in my life. Just within the last few years I can think of where I have spent Christmas Eve working, Driving in the car to get to my parents, laying on the living room floor watching blacksploitation movies, in the hospital after getting beat up, drunk in the bar, etc. etc. This year it looks like I will be rather busy. Gonna take the kids to children's service at gay church at 6, go to brother in law's house for the other half's Christmas, go back to gay church at 8 to be in a Christmas play, and go back to brother in law's to get drunk and play pool. Tentatively.

Busy night, just to have it all over with in 10 minutes tomorrow when the kids ravage their gifts. Will it be worth it all? Probably not, but it will be fun in bits and pieces. Although I could go all Divine like in John Water's "Female Trouble" where she throws the Christmas Tree on her mother screaming "Fuck you! Fuck you! I Hate You! You're Horrible People!"

Merry Christmas, hookers....

P.S. Nice girls don't wear Cha-Cha Heels!

Dammit, I was going to say something about cha-cha heels and you beat me to it!

Drink heavily tonight, my dear. It's what we do.

Merry Christmas!

I love that scene in Female Trouble, that is one of my favorite movies. I hope you had a great Christmas!

JP- Cha-Cha Heels should be referenced in every post as far as I'm concerned.

Ray Ray-You are my new bestie for liking this movie. I WORSHIP John Waters. Looking forward to "Fruitcake" and "Hairspray 2"
