We took most stuff down the day after Christmas.  This weekend I have to pull garland and bows off the porch.  Plus we have to put away or menorah and manger.

I know my grasp of religion is not that strong, but isn't the menorah a Jewish symbol/object ?

That it is by jimgon (4.00 / 2) #7 Tue Jan 09, 2007 at 07:01:27 AM EST
But I view Christianity is a perversion of Judaism, so it works.  The characters in the manger are also black.  It is a considerable distance from my Laughing Jesus which looks like Bob Marley. 

Basically my entire house is meant to be an affront to the overly religious.

I myself am almost a Buddhist.

blame global warming for stunting your winter dormancy. Seems that's the hip thing to do now. Pat AlGORE on the back for letting you know.

I'm hitting that now. Last weekend was the first since before Turkey Day that I had nothing to do.

So I cleaned the apartment. Yes, my life is just packed with excitement.

What, aren't you paying attention? It's

Keynote Day!

All must travel to the city of their birth and line up outside the Apple Store to be counted and to purchase their iPhone.

But then you have to "celebrate" with an 8 day install of Vista Home Server Edition.
