Dave’s Christmas Viewing

My traditional Christmas TV Show viewing. These are the shows that I MUST watch every year before it’s really the Holiday season for me… 

It’s a Bundyful Life – Married with Children

married-with-children-its-a-bundyful-life-14A Bundy take on It’s a Wonderful Life, Al wishes he’d never been born and Sam Kenison shows up as his fallen guardian angel to show him how much happier Peg, Kelly and Bud would be without him. When the Angel pinches Pegs butt, she can’t stop from laughing even as Jablonski tries to squeeze it out of her.

Christmas Vacation

A Charlie Brown Christmas

The tradition unlike any other. If this were made today, it would never be a hit. But it’s just so charming and a reminder of simpler times. 




My Books -vs- My Office

KT-slate-03-lg-v2._V370656498_So the house is a mess as I started building my Home Office/Studio late yesterday. I have rearranged my various homes and apartments numerous times in my life, but this time it’s proving to be a challenge. With a four year old who is NOT at all happy with change, and with the idea that the other half of the space will now be his “bedroom,” to my knees and fifty-one year old back not remembering why I started getting rid of so many books a few years back, and it was not just because of the invention of the Kindle! By the by, the Kindle has now been declared bad. By bad, I mean that the Main Stream Media has decided that the device is both “uncool” and environmentally unfriendly. I’m serious.
