Party Hearty, Everyone!

Because you'll be back at work again before you know it!

So as the New Year's Baby says:

Badass Knitters

Personally, I am not a knitter. I did learn how when I was young but my one and only knitting project was a disaster. So today I envy the truly badass knitters out there, the ones who can knit anything. Like this perfect Viking headgear:

Or how about something in a more Lord-of-the-Rings style?

Such knitters even have badass tattoos.

Don't mess with them or you'll end up with a needle in your eye!

A Nice Way to Finish Off the Year

It seems that 2013 is going out in style! Vanessa Morgan of Traveling Cats has very kindly passed on this blog award to me. I'm flattered that she enjoys my blog because I am certainly a big fan of Traveling Cats! It features the most delightful daily photos of cats from all around the world. If you are a cat lover (and who isn't?), this is a blog you need to follow!

There are four blogs from which I shamelessly steal LOLs, photos and videos all year long -- I can always count on these bloggers to have the best taste and funniest sense of humour. So I'd like to pass this award on to them in recognition of my great debt to their bloggy awesomeness:

Kal of Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool

Leeanna of Can We Have a New Witch, Ours Melted

Martha of Plowing Through Life

Jackiesue of Yellowdog Granny

Sweet Wolverine Greetings!

And oh, what the hell, since it's Christmas -- here's a bonus picture of Colin Firth in his Mark Darcy reindeer jumper from Bridget Jones's Diary:

I hope everyone is having a great day today!

Finally, Christmas Eve is here!

Time for everyone to put up their feet, relax and enjoy the holiday. All the work is done -- decorating, shopping, wrapping, sending cards -- now we can just kick back and watch a few holiday specials on TV. That's what my cat Her Royal Highness wants to do tonight. Maybe My Rare One will pour everyone some nice eggnogs 'n rum? Oh yeah, that's good stuff.

It's Tough Being a G-Man

You'd think that life as a yummy Christmas treat would be pretty sweet. Well, think again. These poor little bastards can't catch a break.

Happy Winter Solstice!

That's right! Strip off and run around with flaming torches, everyone! Let's all welcome the Return of the Light in the old-fashioned way!

It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed since the much-ballyhooed End of the World on the 2012 Winter Solstice. Remember how nervous some people were at this time last year?

Keep Calm and Carry On

Hasn't this meme had its 15 minutes already? How many silly variations of it can there be?

And yet -- the original phrase had great meaning and a really interesting history. Watch this fascinating little video to find out!

Oh, okay then. The phrase can stay.

Oh, Santa!

Santa has a dark side too.

People just don't respect him like they did in the old days.

I'm not sure why.

No one cares what list they're on anymore.

Even Santa's on the naughty list these days.

He's gettin' too old for this gig and all the crap that comes with it.

Yeah, Santa, this time of year always gives me a twitchy eye too.

And Michelle is annoyed too

Diplomacy? Or . . . something else?

Holy guacamole! It seems like, unbeknownst to everyone, Obama is on the down-low! How long has this been going on?

Oh dear. This just confirmed a lot of those crazy right-wing conspiracy theories about the situation in America today.

Bah, Humbug!

Not everything about the holiday season is fun! Just ask HRH.

Looking forward to the joy of extended family gatherings, are we?

Hey, don't let the kids see this next one!

Where do all our gifts really come from?

Wrap up all those gifts real purty now!

Some modern-day Marquis de Scrooge thought up this one --

And doesn't every family have a Cousin Eddie? "Shitter's full!"

The Tree Is Up!

All set for Christmas now!

Gay Star Trek -- EVERYONE ELSE!

Continuing on from yesterday's post --

And finally, while not necessarily gay, definitely queer!

Gay Star Trek -- SULU!

I love gay Star Trek LOLs! Not surprisingly, many concern Sulu -- here's a cross-section of my faves:

I think we'd better give George Takei the last word on this subject --

Tomorrow: Gay Star Trek -- EVERYONE ELSE!
