Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

I've been tagged by Sues at Sues Views.

But before I get into that I noticed, whilst perusing her profile, that she's a fan of Disturbed, SOiL, Slipknot, Metallica, Korn and AC/DC. Damn. Some of my favorite bands too. A woman after my own musical heart -- and, boys and girls, I'm pushin' 60. Just a strange observation.

Trivia bit: Sues, were you aware that Angus Young is 51 years old now, 5'2" tall and weighs 120 pounds?

So here is the tag:

"Ok, this is how it works: The player (me) must list 3 things that I would love to get for Christmas. Then I must list 3 things that I definitely do not want to get for Christmas. Then I tag 5 friends and list their names. The one I tag needs to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes then tag 5 more people. They must also clarify all the rules. When you tag someone you need to leave a comment that says “you’ve been Christmas tagged!” in their comments and tell them to read your blog. Ok everybody.."

Three Things I Would Love To Get For Christmas:

1. A new car. Still haven't settled on one specifically, but the Short List would be a 2007 Honda Accord EX V6 w/244 hp, a 2007 Honda CR-V EX-L AWD, in-line 4 w/166 hp, or a 2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4WD with the 3.5L, 270hp Lexus V6 engine. Zowee!
2. Five years of a satellite internet connection -- primarily because my current connection is dial-up via a 56 modem working, on a good day, at 53kbps. I've got DirecTV or, otherwise, I'd be completely isolated. Even then, my view of the southern sky is kinda limited due to the fleet of 175'+ pine trees surrounding my property.

3. A State of Fornicalia PERS retirement -- fully paid medical upon retirement until death. Yeah right. Fat fucking chance.

Three Things I Wouldn't Want For Christmas:

1. Any Abba CD;
2. A subscription to any vapid magazine such as People, National Enquirer or Oprah;
3. A pair of Uggs.

But I'm such a jerk; this is where my meme ends. If you yourself wish to take up the challenge and post your own 3 Favorites and 3 Least, then please go ahead.

It's 8:45 pm on Saturday night and I've got house-cleaning and wash to do following last night's Early Christmas. My fiance has to work on Christmas Day (imagine, if you will, having to do that if you were 50 years old!) because she has little seniority on her job -- so my family conducted our Christmas last night. Actually, it was great. We had a massive 20-lb radial-sliced ham, green beans, Brussels sprouts, red potatoes in Rosemary, fresh biscuits, and Lava cakes for dessert. My nephew even came from the Bay Area for dinner -- through the horrific eastbound I-80 Friday-evening-up-the-mountain traffic. I handed out presents and acted the Santa Claus. Everyone had a great time. Dad was feeling well but I messed up: I gave him a quilted vest, just as he likes, with zipping pockets -- only -- dammit, in the wrong size!!

Ever conducted "The Search" for someone's birthday or for Christmas? That's when you offer a wrapped present that only contains a "hint" for locating the next message, so the recipient can find the true present? I did that for my fiance's final present: a 2 ct set of Princess diamond studs with screw backs. The third and final set for her triple-pierced ears.

Last night was 19-degrees. No additional snow. But I know it's coming.

Sues: thank you, that was quite enjoyable. I like that kind of thing -- getting tagged and having to think of things. BTW, the newest AC/DC DVD, Live At Bonington, is GREAT!

LMC: Merry Christmas to a Powerhouse in the Blogosphere, and may 2007 find you even more widely read and more successful than in 2006!!
