Nothing says "It's the holidays,"

Being the 2nd weekend in November, the holidays are nearing.  People are planning their Thanksgiving meals, Black Friday ads are already airing, Christmas music is playing in the stores, and there are loads of Christmas boutiques and open houses popping up all over town.  It's that time of year...oh wait, it's 90 degrees outside and my air conditioner just kicked on.  Nothing says "It's the holidays" like the sound of an air conditioner!

And just some funnies because it's way too hot to think about the holidays...
Happy Saturday!

  1. Those cartoons are hilarious.
    The other red flag with chicks, I asked you to do y last week. I'm just going to have to do it myself.
    Men internally if sensible, or if brave say. Well lover, you can get down from that cross now, we need the wood. So stop being a martyr and get off your butt and do it your self. I'm not your servant.

    The last one is good indeed. I'm writing with one finger on a tablet right now. Is five in the AM.

    1. Ha! How does that response go over!?!?
      The first one made me laugh, because it's so true. I despise being told to "just relax" when I'm fired up. "YOU FREAKING RELAX!" is usually my reply to that. ;)
      I can totally identify with that last one too - working late on the computer and then I'll turn out the lights and pick up the tablet to read or text or what have you. These make me laugh most, I think, because I can identify with each and every one.
      5am? That's too early for a weekend, isn't it?!?!

    2. It depend on the general dynamic. Sometimes you end up in a relationship where you're playing a roll against type. Sometimes though, and without anyone saying it, rolls form about certain people. The cooking thing was very the woman's job. But that's gone, mostly. It now tends to fall on the best cook. Who tends to like cooking. But I don't see any chick choosing to schlep the bins to the kerb for collection if she can convince a bloke to do it. However, equally a chick should be very wary of the bloke who doesn't do it by instinct as it were.

      The 5am thing is due to a hellish foot. I ate something that caused all the tendons in my foot to stiffen.
      I tried to walk the dog while driving very slowly this morning but she disliked that more than not being walked for two days, poor thing.
      From the last cartoon. I know the following statement may be blasphemous, but from the Youtube clips. Craig Ferguson is better than Conan O'Brien.

    3. Oh, I completely agree! O'Brien is weasely and irritating. I like Craig Ferguson, but he's leaving his show after not being given the nod to replace David Letterman. I don't really watch the late shows, but occasionally catch a posted clip. Jimmy Fallon is a good one too.
      And I'd say the idea behind choosing the cook role is an acceptable way of choosing the other "roles" as well? As long as I'm capable of doing it and don't feel taken advantage of who cares. I'll have you know too that I take the trash out to the street every Tuesday, even before singledom. :)
      I'm sorry about the foot. This has happened before hasn't it? Have you narrowed it down to what it is that you're eating and causing it? I bet you're chomping at the bit to get out there with your new camera too! Thinking good thoughts that you feel better soon.

    4. Oh, and I do have to add (based on the married friends in my life) that I think so often the martyrdom is self-fulfilling prophecy. Marriage might be the start of it, and then kids seem to really bring it on. I know numerous women who complain about how their husbands take on tasks (from emptying the dishwasher to taking care of the kids) and then complain how tired they are because they have to do everything. I tell ya what, I'd stop trying too if every time I tried it I was criticized. That's just human nature. I certainly don't want to make sweeping generalizations about my sisters, and it's my own opinion from what I've seen, but I also dislike that "Woe is me, I work so hard and no one understands" business.

    5. I've been in houses where the man is a guest also.

    6. You should see what blogger emailed to me instead of this last comment...it's like 2 pages of Chinese characters and gibberish. I thought maybe you'd (I'd) been hacked, but it showed up fine in the post. I hope you've not been hacked anyhow!?!? :)

    7. No, not that I know of. Google hasn't sent me anything. But I notice anytime I comment on any Blogger blog I'm asked for proof I'm human via a photo of door numbers. Do you have to do that ?.

      Delete
    8. No, I have that number verification turned off since it was just a pain and sent comments on older post for moderation just to stop the constant spam on those posts. So I don't know why it's asking you that. I even double checked just now, and it's still off. Do you think it's because you're on WP?

  2. Thanks for letting me know about the email. I have been getting email returns on my comments and I've been trying to fix it.

    1. It is true!!! I rarely go out anymore where there isn't a group or a table who isn't all on their phones. It always makes me want to say, "Be with who you're with!" It irks me most when it's families with kids. What's the point of even going out. It'd be a lot easier to just stay home and look at your phone.

  4. I literally laughed out loud at the serial killer one! FUNNY.
