Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Did you stand and cheer as loudly as I did when you heard that the POTUS is sending Billie Jean King to Sochi as a U.S. Olympic delegate? BJKHe’s making a political statement, which I support (yes, I cheered for John Carlos and Tommie Smith, too), but he’s also further elevating a role model I hold on the highest pedestal.

~~ Nothing says “Christmas spirit” more than a deluge of form emails from title companies and engineering firms.

~~ Then again, does somebody want to explain exactly how is candy corn Christmasy-y?

~~ I never assume anyone is celebrating any of the seasonal holidays, as I find it overfamiliar (or maybe just presumptuous) when I’m told, “Have a merry Christmas!” Before you say, “Oh, lighten up,” think how you’d feel if all day — for weeks— strangers and semi-acquaintances presupposed you were something you’re not. I’m cool with people who say, “Have a wonderful holiday!” even when mine has passed, but I’m not OK being told to enjoy my Christian celebration. This is not a declaration of “war,” as FOX TV likes to say; it’s just a hope that the majority will remember that we’re not all the same, even if we’re all brothers and sisters.

~~ Nevertheless, I don’t want to come off curmudgeonly. I really love the lights, the goodwill, and the joy that those who celebrate Christmas and the Winter Solstice share with all of us non-believers. In addition, I completely respect that worship brings bliss to many. Therefore, I wish those of you celebrating hearts filled with elation and homes filled with those you love.

~~ For the rest of us, there’s Festivus… and this:
Enjoy your weekend!

J!-E!-T!-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!

Holiday Greetings
How about an email wishing holiday greetings from a firm that fired you five years ago!

Re: Holiday Greetings
That's crass and cruel. I'll send you genuine ones!
