GREETINGS OF THE SEASON


Well here we go, rolling up for GREETINGS OF THE SEASON 2015, one year after our first Greetings of the Season. Same venue in NZ. Thank you to the new owner of my “old” paradise for giving us permission to hold this party there. Next year’s celebrations will be at my newΒ paradise.

It goes without saying, molly, Ezzy, Roy etc might or might not be real names. All members of Cillsquatchdom will use the same monikers as they used a year ago, to avoid confusion. It’s already complicated enough, with so many of them using the same computers and avatars here.

As we are the first country in the world to celebrate the season, it behoves us to usher it in for the rest of you plebs out there. Greetings of the season, folks!

    Indeed. We have heard the rumours, Spawny, and have no reason to doubt them. If it is sufficiently established to have its own acronym (BTMSGL) it MUST be true, must it not?

    The same little bird tells me you are English and most of your friends here are American, so our Christmas-time celebrations are a little premature for you. Bah, humbug. What are time zones between friends?

    Compliments of the season to you all, Spawny and friends.

    I guess it’s time to share a Christmas story…

    I was rushing around trying to get some last minute shopping done. I was stressed out and not thinking very fondly of the Christmas season right then. It was dark, cold, and wet in the parking lot as I was loading my car up with gifts that I felt obligated to buy. I noticed that I was missing a receipt that I might need later. So mumbling under my breath, I retraced my steps to the mall entrance. As I was searching the wet pavement for the lost receipt, I heard a quiet sobbing. The crying was coming from a poorly dressed boy of about 12 years old.

    He was short and thin. He had no coat. He was just wearing a ragged flannel shirt to protect him from the cold night’s chill. Oddly enough, he was holding a hundred dollar bill in his hand. Thinking that he had gotten lost from his parents, I asked him what was wrong.

    He told me his sad story. He said that he came from a large family. He had three brothers and four sisters. His father had died when he was nine years old. His mother was poorly educated and worked two full time jobs. She made very little to support her large family. Nevertheless, she had managed to skimp and save two hundred dollars to buy her children Christmas presents. The young boy had been dropped off, by his mother, on the way to her second job. He was to use the money to buy presents for all his siblings and save just enough to take the bus home. He had not even entered the mall, when an older boy grabbed one of the hundred dollar bills and disappeared into the night. “Why didn’t you scream for help?” I asked.

    The boy said, “I did.”

    “And nobody came to help you?” I queried. The boy stared at the sidewalk and sadly shook his head. “How loud did you scream?” I inquired. The soft-spoken boy looked up and meekly whispered, “Help me!” I realized that absolutely no one could have heard that poor boy cry for help. So I grabbed his other hundred and ran to my car.

    http://www.returnofkings.com/75991/why-star-wars-the-force-awakens-is-a-social-justice-propaganda-film
    particularly the section ‘The Mary Sue of all Mary Sues’

    Whereas with other major Force-wielders in the series their abilities have previously developed or are developed over years, Rey [the gurly lead] seemingly does it in less than 12 seconds, rather than parsecs. Her whole trajectory in the film reeks of β€œgod mode”, which for non-gamers like myself refers to the cheat codes that make a game character invincible.

    2:05 a.m. here and all’s well. Most of the world sleeps, leaving it to creatures of the night such as owls and Dog and me. Dog hates the festive seasons. I have to shut him away when visitors are here as I can’t trust him with people, and of course the women all hear his moaning and howling and beg me to let him out so they can comfort him. He’d probably chew them to bits.

    I patrol with him at night to make up for incarcerating him during the day. By the time I lock him up again he’ll have forgiven me… almost.

He’s definitely got pitbull in him and something else, not sure what. The gangs breed their dogs from the most successful fighting dogs, regardless of breed.

    Snow there, hot sunshine here. When I was a kid I thought Santa was a bit dumb. A sleigh would be okay at the North Pole but not Down Under in the middle of Summer.

    Deer are for eating, not towing sleighs around, and they can’t fly. They are heavier than air and don’t have wings. If you gave them wings you’d have to take away their legs because too much weight and they’d need their muscles for flying not running. No back muscles either. Too heavy. Neck too thick. Actually you’d have to re-design them as a bird.

    As I pointed out to my parents, if a kid could work that out surely an old geezer like Santa could work it out as well. I waited for their explanation but it was not forthcoming.

    Girl also came from a gangland back ground; some dealers guard dog. Rumor is she was shot twice and still chased out the invaders. The un pc version of her background is…. they were breed to keep slaves in check and to run down runaway slaves. She is indifferent to most folks once she gets to know them but always on high alert. She has taken to Ton Spawn like a story book

    Boy came out of a fighting kennel, and killed my neighbors Shepard/ husky mix in seconds. He is that classic fighting dog where he is hostile to other dogs, super territorial and gives no warning. My suspension is, someone lost their Grand Champion when he was raided. Grand Champion means he won 5 fights, has nothing to prove and is kept around for breeding stock. He transitioned into regular life like a Grand Champ and is with my daughter now. He’s still a docuhe to other dogs but otherwise is a loving family pet.

Love at first sight. He seemed to understand it was me and him against his tormenters. There was a bit of a kerfuffle before we got out of there.

    “Hori style” could mean exactly what you say, in that jumping in and grabbing them is just the sort of thing a Hori would attempt. However “Hori”, coming from a Maori, is a way of laughing at his own race. “Hori” is sort of the NZ equivalent of “nigger” in the USA, except if I were to call Tom a Hori he’d be amused rather than offended by it.

    We children were snuggled up safe in our beds,
    While dreams of pavlova danced ’round in our heads;

    And Mum in her nightie, and Dad in his shorts,
    Had just settled down to watch TV sports.

    When outside the house a mad ruckus arose;
    To squeaking and banging we awoke from our doze.

    We ran to the screen door, peeked cautiously out,
    Snuck onto the deck, then let out a shout.

    Guess what had woken us up from our snooze,
    A rusty old Ute pulled by eight mighty ‘roos.

    The cheerful man driving was giggling with glee,
    And we both knew at once who this plump bloke must be.

    Now, I’m telling the truth it’s all dinki-di,
    Those eight kangaroos fairly soared through the sky.

    Santa leaned out the window to pull at the reins,
    And encouraged the ‘roos, by calling their names.

    ‘Now, Kylie! Now, Kirsty! Now, Shazza and Shayne!
    On Kipper! On, Skipper! On, Bazza and Wayne!

    Park up on that water tank. Grab a quick drink,
    I’ll scoot down the gum tree. Be back in a wink!’

    So up to the tank those eight kangaroos flew,
    With the Ute full of toys, and Santa Claus too.

    He slid down the gum tree and jumped to the ground,
    Then in through the window he sprang with a bound.

    He had bright sunburned cheeks and a milky white beard.
    A jolly old joker was how he appeared.

    He wore red stubby shorts and old thongs on his feet,
    And a hat of deep crimson as shade from the heat.

    His eyes – bright as opals – Oh How they twinkled
    And like a goanna his skin was quite wrinkled

    His shirt was stretched over a round bulging belly
    Which shook when he moved, like a plate full of jelly.

    A fat stack of prezzies he flung from his back,
    He looked like a swaggie unhitching his pack.

    He spoke not a word, but bent down on one knee,
    To position our goodies beneath the yule tree.

    Surfboard and footy-ball shapes for us two.
    And tongs for Dad for the new barbeque.

    A mysterious package he left for our Mum,
    Then he turned and winked and held up his thumb,

    Strolled out on deck and his ‘roos came on cue;
    Flung his sack in the back and prepared to shoot through.

    He bellowed out loud as they swooped past the gates-
    MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and goodonya, MATES!’

    A Partridge in a Pear Tree
    What is this gift even good for? A tree needs tending and sunlight, and a bird is going to make a racket and shit all over everything. Talk about stealing a feminist’s thunder! We’re going to replace this pointless gift with the daily necessity of third wavers, a mocha and a handful of biscotti.
