I used to work for Hellmart. I worked there for 11 long years. Most of that time was horrible. Other than meeting some awesome people (my wife included), there weren’t really a lot of good things that happened there. Especially around the holidays. ‘The most wonderful time of the year’ doesn’t apply when you work retail.
There was one thing, however, that I enjoyed doing when I worked there, and I could only do it around the holidays. Every year, around the beginning of December, we’d get in a big shipment of Danish Butter Cookies. I didn’t eat them, or anything, but I did thoroughly enjoy taking a Sharpie to the display boxes and coloring in the E R at the end of butter.
I was driving behind a car a few minutes ago that had a license plate that read “6TH ONE”.
Now I’m left to wonder what happened to the first five…
There’s a company near me that’s named Eaton Asphalt, and I find that amusing.
As someone who spends a lot of time on the road, it’s frightening how many people I see who are looking at their phones while driving. And I’m not talking about when the vehicles are stopped at a light. I mean that they’re doing it while their cars are in motion.
Seriously, people. No text, post, tweet, or pic is worth your life. Put the damn phone down while you’re driving.

I feel you, Seether. I feel you.
Almost everyone I know loves the movie Christmas Vacation. My stepbrother has a party at his house every year where people come over to watch it while they all wear shirts with movie quotes on them. I’ve also seen plenty of people post on Facebook about how they’re watching the movie or will watch the movie.
I’m not one of those people.
To be honest, I’m not a fan of Christmas Vacation. I don’t think it’s a bad movie, but I certainly don’t think it’s as good as everyone makes it out to be. I don’t care for it.

….apparently, actors aren’t real people.
