I was one of those wimps. I walked like a saddle-sore cowboy after a hard trail ride, and stepping down from a street curb (and bouncing) made my eyes water. No work or play for me! But only for about two days. But then, by the 3-4th day, like Tom, it was as if I were growing cactus in my shorts! Yowee! And back at work by then, my boss spent most of his day rolling on the floor laughing...

Of course the operation didn't really 'neuter' me. It took 40 years of marriage to do that!

To my darling wife: You know I'm joking, baby! Love you! All the muches in the world!

Amazingly, I hardly felt any discomfort at all those first two days, but the third made up for it in spades. I really paid the price for acting as if I were Superman those first two days. Had I known then what I know now, I would have scheduled a week off work and stayed in bed the whole time; pain or no pain.

So... where are YOU sleeping tonight? The couch or the doghouse? BTW, you owe me a keyboard...

My best friend was ready to sue the surgeon. He virtually could not move off the couch for almost three weeks. Swollen like a softball. He didn't resume normal movement for more than two months! I was able to function normally with just tenderness right at the incision sites by about the 6-7th day, but he was in agony. And we both used the same surgeon! Different strokes for different folks. (No pun intended.)

I've decided to start read Karin Slaughter's books again. I've read the first three or four of her Grant County series books and liked them a lot. I just checked what she has released since and she does manage to complicate things! After her Grant County series she started writing the Will Trent series, after a couple of books she combines the two series in the Georgia series. However, she still writes Will Trent books!

This makes deciding what order to read them complicated. I've decided that I combine all three series in the Georgia (Grant County/Will Trent) series for myself and number and read them in order of publication.

I Hate the Mall
(A rant sung to the tune of "We Three Kings")

Weary shoppers thats what we are.
Searching for a spot for the car.
Speed bump and pothole, all slots are still full
I should quit now and head for the bar!

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the Undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, next year I'll order
All gifts online instead!

Car is parked, we're staring aghast,
Zombie-like horde is exceedingly vast.
Last year we swore, we'd do this no more.
With luck this trip will be our last!

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, next year I'll order
All gifts online instead!

Girding loins, we enter the fray.
Body-checking those in our way.
To ones who dare linger, we give the finger!
Cross us and we'll make you pay!

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, next year I'll order
All gifts online instead!

Toy Department, no orderly line.
Braindead people wallow like swine!
Fingers grab me, elbows jab me,
But the "Tickle Me Elmo" is mine!

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the Undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, next year I'll order
All gifts online instead!

Perfume Counter - spritzed in the eyes!
Allergies start to arise!
Puffy and crying, wish I was dying,
A Scuba mask may have been wise.

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the Undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, next year I'll order
All gifts online instead!

The internet may indeed save me time,
Give sanity and peace so sublime.
But cause I'm Canuck, I'm out of luck
I can't get Amazon Prime.

O Mall of Horror, Mall of Dread
Shoppers shuffle like the Undead
Bah! bricks and mortar, I swear that I'll order
All gifts online instead!

So...

We went to get a live tree to put up this past weekend. I mean, really, between 2-3 weeks before Christmas is normal for a live tree, right? Well, the tree lots had slim pickings and we asked about their next shipment. The answer: "No, our Christmas ordering is over with."

What? Christmas ordering is over with? And not just live trees. Lights and other Christmas decorations are almost non-existent in any of our local stores. We were driven by desperation to actually go in a Wal-Mart. What did we find there? The netting lights you throw over the bushes in your front yard. That was it.

We finally located some lights for our tree to replace the old and worn strands from prior years, but only after a long day of searching. And we were not the only ones. There were many others pretty much hopping from store-to-store along with us on our search.

You know what? If the stores would not put out all of their Christmas merchandise before Halloween they wouldn't have to watch it just sit on the shelves for nearly two months and then they might be willing to order extra when the Christmas Season actually arrives!!!!

* pant, pant *

Whew, I'm OK. I'm OK.

When we still sold a lot of Christmas lights in our store we did sell them all year around (between December 27 and December 6 the next year we call them party lights) but not until the 6th of December we would put them in a prominent place in the store. On December 5 we celebrate Sinterklaas in the Netherlands (and Belgium), it used to be that most stores would wait with their Christmas department until after that. Nowadays the Christmas departments open late August or early September. Mind you you can buy pepernoten (Sinterklaas treat) in August, too nowadays, by the time it's Sinterklaas you've eaten so many pepernoten you're sick and tired of them!

Looking at the peprtnoten recipe, they look like what we would call "ginger snaps". I remember my grandmother (German speaking Pole) baking ginger snaps at Christmas time.

Thanks, you bring back fond memories of eating Grandma’s ginger snaps by the dozens with cold milk.

Interesting. There's a Pennsylvania brand of Ginger Snaps that I like (I don't find them near Chicago) but they sell them as a Halloween item, and rarely at other times of the year.

What I called pepernoten are actually kruidnoten. Pepernoten are more chewy and kruidnoten are crunchy. However, everybody, including most manufacturers calls kruidnoten pepernoten. Pepernoten (and speculaas) are most similar to gingerbread.

I personally prefer kruidnoten, I do like pepernoten but they are often too big a chunks to eat easily.

Hey!
Can we have some real ranting and venting in this here Rant and Vent Thread?!?

There have been at least 3-4 posts with no ranting or venting whatsoever!
This makes me verrrry angrrrrrry!!!!!

Can't a man get his portion of (other people's) ranting in peace? What's with all the nostalgia and the biscuits? I'm sure these can go in the "I vote Bambi for President" thread (I'm sure there must be one).

Please keep this thread for the good social purpose for which it was made! I want to see anger! I want to see bitterness! I want to see rage!
Aaargghhh! B^&***!"£LF**k :furious3 :

Phew... now that's better... how about some biscuits?

A bit of a vent then! Since the blokes here are getting personal on this thread I thought I'd share my experience with the SNIP.

When I had it done I drove down to the clinic, was told by a couple of nurses to drop my dacks and jump on the table. They then started to do the deed under a local all the while catching up on their gossip which I was becoming a part of and when I joined in one of them said to me not to get smart while they had what they had in their hands.
All done they told me to get dressed and said I might need it pick up some aspirin on the way home.

Back to work the next day. Although with a pronounced wide stride.

I'll bet that should be spelled wiiiiiiiiiiide stride....

Did you guys get a signed paper on the Doctor's stationary stating that the procedure was performed? The surgeon gave me one of his prescription forms with the statement on it. But then, I was a bachelor when I had mine done. I wonder if he thought I might need it in case of some future paternity suit?
