Merry Christmas! In honor of the day, this will be short and sweet.
Thanks to all those who have helped make this another memorable 2WC Christmas (you know who you are).
Maybe its because of the weather or beause Christmas landed on a Tuesday this year; whatever the reason, this year’s holiday season seems to have flown by.
With that in mind, I’ll let you get back to what’s left of your Christmas.
May it be happy, healthy and shared with family and friends.
…just for fun:
Christmas (and “Les Misérables” of course) is upon us. Christmas is a time for family and friends, good food and good fun, and taking a break from the daily norm to appreciate all that we have.
I acknowledge that not everyone loves the holiday, and with all of the lights, Santas, and songs being thrown at the consuming public from October through December, I can’t say I really blame them. Anyone who’s wandered through a shopping mall on a Saturday in December can probably relate to Ebenezer. Read the rest of this entry
Well, I got nothin’. Thanks Mayans. For three and a half glorious years, we built towards the grand finale.
We covered global warming, we gave our spin on politics, we kept you up to date on the latest achievements of sports’ greatest franchise, and we even occasionally covered a serious topic or two. Read the rest of this entry
In the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle, it’s sometimes easy to lose track of what’s really important. We can sometimes get caught up in finding the perfect gift, and forget that it’s not what you give that’s important, because the world is ending on Friday anyway.
Yes, the long foretold end of the world (or at least the end of the Mayan calendar) is almost here.
As with any apocalyptic prediction, this one has attracted plenty of crazies…I mean true believers.
Of course, who am I to judge, I admit I don’t know what will happen or not happen on Friday. Maybe the world will end. Maybe the Mayans will finally release the new edition of their calendar (it’s been too long). The truth is that none of us really know.
Of course, if you’re feeling a little squeamish, and aren’t quite ready to meet your maker, you can always book a trip to Sirince, Turkey or Bugarach, France. Both cities are supposedly being spared the doomsday Friday due to “positive energy.”
The rest of us will just have to try the less expensive option, a little closer to home and with our own “positive energy.”

…just for fun:
It is precisely one week until Christmas and we all know what that means…you better get going on your shopping…and…it’s ANSWER THE PHONE LIKE BUDDY THE ELF DAY!!!
It’s that one day of the year when all of us remember about 5% of the time to answer the phone with the greatest of all greetings: “Buddy the Elf. What’s your favorite color?”
True. It’s 95% of those 5% of calls end in the other person hanging up in complete confusion, but that’s not the point. It’s the holiday season, a time for cheer, fun, and some telephonic frivolity.
It’s easy to get stressed out and caught up in the hectic business of December. Sometimes we need a little reminder to appreciate the reason for the season.
So enjoy, and always remember and never forget: if it was really important they’ll probably call back.
