One week to go until the countdown begins again!



The holiday crunch is officially upon us! How do I know this? Because last night at work I witnessed the finest holiday spread ever known to man kind. Two cases of White Castles, two stacks of fresh Krispy Kreme donuts and two boxes of Krispy Kreme coffee. Yum! From last night forward our office will be filled with this wonderful food every night. The Birdman and Kim Jong Ramone would wet themselves if they worked with me, and the Grumbler and Willsix would shit themselves.

Whenever Christmas falls on a Sunday or a Monday I get an extra special Christmas bonus at work, an extra day added to my schedule. Yep, I'll be working 6 days next week. It's OK though, I'll get to redeem that day sometime during the next quarter along with an extra day for the day after Thanksgiving and New Years Eve(I'm not working New Years Eve, but I get a day off for it because it falls on the weekend).

We're just about done with our Christmas shopping. Most of the presents under the tree are for me! Allyson went to town yesterday (What a wonderful woman). Next year most of the presents under the tree will be for Corky's offspring, so we decided to spoil ourselves one last time. Who the hell am I kidding, there will be plenty of presents for me as well!

Every year the during the first week of December I get a half month bonus that is used exclusively for presents ( not so long ago things were so tight that I used this bonus to catch up on bills, but hopefully those days are gone forever). We split the bonus for our holiday shopping. Now that there's going to be three of us, one of us has to be cut out. Sorry Allyson. I'm sure that Corky Jr.(regardless of the child's gender, the child will be named Corky Jr.) and I will make you something nice. Perhaps a replica of our apartment made out of Popsicle sticks.

I hope everybody has a great weekend! Feel free to enjoy our fake tree. Can you guess which ornaments are mine? Oh and sorry about that musty electrical socket eye sore, I haven't gotten around to painting that wall yet.

Christmas Prayer: Dear God, please show Nonny the way. She doesn't belive in Beta, help her to see the light.

I've never seen a santa hat on top of the tree before. Mind you ours generally has a Vegas showgirl complete with sparkly booby tassles!

Merry Christmas!

Burgers, Donuts, and Coffee: Now we're talkin' RockDogs language! All you need is someone to sneak in some beer and I'll be right over!

I don't like Krispy Kream donuts. I've never had White Castle, we don't have them around here. What is your job exactly Corky? Can you say? Or is it top secret?

Thanks for the prayer, but I'm not praying to your Google overlord you freaking beta zealot!

Nonny, I just work for one of those fortune 500 monsters. The job isn't that exciting and I don't make a lot of money, but they do take care of their employees.

White Castles are amazing. That's friggin awesome that the company party had them. It isn't a real party without White Castles.

And someone getting hurt, of course.

OUr tree is sitting in our living room completely undecorated...

We're just too lazy... ;)

Hey Captain! You had to go and remind me of White Castles didn't you? While so many of my friends call them "rat burgers" it's truly the one thing I miss MOST after turning vegetarian over five years ago.

The sweet siren song of those sizzling burgers just makes me drool ... with those tasty little onions and ...

HELP!!!!

We put our tree last night. I thought of you and Nonny, because sitting at the top isn't an angel, or a star, or even a hat. Nope, we have Dart Vader. I'll try to get a photo for you. It's a fake one, too, but it does have some cool ornaments.

I love White Castles.

metal mark said...

Oh, Beta might let me comment finally. I like the Star Trek ornament a lot. I have a lot of Snoopys on my tree.

Tod said...

I was so inspired by your post it made me rush home and drag my tree out of the garage. Now it's up it stinks of damp. Ugh!

slskenyon said...

I wish I had that kind of food available to me in an office--or anywhere at any time perhaps.

Pud said...

I'm finally able to see your blog and comment on it.

Looks like you have the Christmas spirit. That's good because I don't. Hope you have enough for the both of us.

Tree's not so bad. Ours is artifical too and it looks like Charlie Brown's.

Big Pissy said...

Fresh, hot Krispy Kreme donuts are one of my favorite things EVER!

Yum!

Lady K said...

I'm not a big fan of Krispy Kreme. Never did get what all the hype was about with those things. They're just too sweet in my opinion. Give me a dunkin' donuts regular glazed or a McD's sausage mcmuffin and I'm a happy camper.

I'm praying with you for that heathen nonny. Sooner or later she will see the light or be cast down into the depths of myspace.
