Strep throat, a visit to the doctor, two shots, a black eye, busted lip, cracked tooth after a reaction to the shots made me faint and do a faceplant on the floor.....and a partridge in a pair tree. Top that!

Damn dude, that's a Holiday Beatdown!



Yeah, a holiday beatdown is right. I'd definitely like to redo Christmas. And we'll see about a lawsuit...not sure yet. Stay tuned.


Christ, man. Santa beat you up for the holiday season. I sincerely hope Santa prescribed some super-strength meds to boot.

I think the good stuff will probably be prescribed after the dental work. At least I sure hope so.

EDIT: After the dental work?! They'd better well give you some Novocaine if they're gonna be working around there. (Unless you're seeking further ground to sue. )

No self-respecting hockey player gets novocaine in between periods.


I'm kidding, of course. Considering my fear of the dentist, I'd rather be knocked out....and also be sent home with the good painkillers.

It was my daughter's first christmas, so I got the joy of seeing her somewhat open her gifts and have a great time with them. Santa's on my bad list though, everything she got makes noise.



Scrubs seasons 1,2 and 3

Simpsons The Movie DVD

Couple of Hoodies

Some Polos for work

DVD player

Phillies Essential Book (I know, no championship for 27 years and counting, but I grew up in the area and I love 'em)


Edit - and today we found out we get to buy a new dishwasher... well that sucks.

I'll eventually get around to making some Vlog on it... If I can tear myself away from NoLimits (and any other small game that wasn't mentioned).
