FIFI'S THOUGHTS
12/24/2008 3:39:01 PM
OF COURSE YOU PEOPLE KNOW I WOULDN'T FORGET YOU DURING CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY 'WINTER SOLSTICE' TO ALL YOU PAGANS
I'M SORRY ABOUT NOT DOING A BLOG EARLIER BUT I'M WRITING FROM HOME TOWN OF DES MOINES IOWA AND IT'S LIKE THE NORTH POLE OUT HERE. I MEAN MY PLANE WAS LIKE CIRCLING FOR A LIKE HOURS YOU KNOW JUST LIKE THAT MOVIE 'THE OUT OF TOWNERS' AND THAT WAS LIKE AFTER THREE OR FOUR CANCELED TRIPS OUT OF LAX.

OMIGOSH TO GO FROM CROWDED SMOGGY BUT KIND OF SUNNY LA TO FREEZING OVERCAST IOWA.....NEED TO GET USED TO IT....I SAY LA IS KIND OF SUNNY BUT EVEN THERE IT WAS STARTING TO FEEL A BIT LIKE NOAH'S FLOOD WAS GOING ON AND EVEN BEING A TOUGH MIDWESTERNER I HAD TO USE MY HEATER QUITE A BIT BEFORE I LEFT.

NO DOUBT AND QUESTION ABOUT IT HERE IN IOWA I MUST USE A PORTABLE HEATER EVEN THOUGH FATHER DOESN'T CARE FOR IT BECAUSE OF THE UTILITY BILL PLUS ABOUT 3 OR 4 BLANKETS WHEN I GO TO SLEEP. NOW THAT'S ON TOP OF OUR HOUSE HEATER OR FIREPLACE. FATHER IT'S A MIDWESTERN WINTER AND YOU'RE JUST GONNA HAVE TO PAYING THOSE GAS BILLS.

YOU PEOPLE LIKE SEEING MY STORIES AND GET 'FREE ENTERTAINMENT' DON'T YOU? WELL YOU DO HAVE TO PAY A FEW BUCKS A MONTH TO YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER.

EEEEEEEEEEEEK A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE READING MY NEWSLETTERS AND STORIES BUT NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE BUYING MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IT'D THE ECONOMY RIGHT? THE ECONOMY.

I'M SORRY BUT I'VE BEEN SEEING A LOT OF THESE NEW 'CHRISTMAS CARTOONS' AND THE CHARACTERS DON'T HAVE MUCH PERSONALITY. AGAIN IT'S BEING JUST A GENYER WHO LIKES NOSTALGIA AND OLD THINGS. I'LL TAKE 'THE GRINCH WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS' AND 'MR MAGOO'S CHRISTMAS' OVER ANY OF THESE COMPUTER GRAPHIC GENERATED THINGS YOU SEE TODAY........

OMIGOSH MY UNCLE BOB WHO'S LIKE AN ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR (SHOULD BE A FULL PROF PRETTY SOON) AT GRINNELL SAID HE SAW 'THE GRINCH' WHEN HE WAS A KID AND AGREES WITH ME THE CARTOONS WERE A LOT BETTER BACK THEN.

NOW YOU SEE ALL THESE 'CONSERVATIVE' PEOPLE (PEOPLE WITH SAFE STEADY JOBS) AND ANTS AND TURTLES AND SQUIRRELS POINTING THEIR FINGERS AT THESE 'GO GETTER TYPE' PEOPLE (WALL STREET TYPES) AND GRASSHOPPERS AND RABBITS AND ARE SAYING 'SEE I SAVED ALL MY MONEY AND STORED ALL MY ACORNS WHILE YOU WERE HOPPING AROUND AND FIDDLING AROUND AND GETTING HUGE BONUSES AND LIVING LIKE BIGSHOTS WHEN TIMES WERE GOOD, NOW THE SHOE'S ON THE OTHER FOOT.'

BUT OF COURSE IT IS CHRISTMAS AND YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE FORTUNATE NEED TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE. I PLAN TO GIVE TO A FEW CHARITIES BEFORE JAN 1 BECAUSE OF TAX PURPOSES.

OMIGOSH I'M JUST HAPPY TO HAVE A JOB AS A WAITRESS DURING THESE TOUGH TIMES. I'M SORRY FATHER BUT AT LEAST I'M WORKING WHILE A LOT OF THOSE 'MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS' AND BANKERS THAT YOU WANT ME TO BE ARE GETTING LAID OFF.

BUT OF COURSE IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AND FATHER AND MOTHER GETS CARDS FROM ALL THEIR FRIENDS AND THEY ALL SAY HOW THIS SON IS GOING TO SOME FANCY LAW SCHOOL OR THIS DAUGHTER IS GOING TO SOME FANCY MEDICAL SCHOOL.......WELL I'M BETTER THAN ALL OF THEM, IN A FEW YEARS THEY'LL BE AN UNEMPLOYED LAWYER OR DOCTOR WITH HUGE DEBTS WHILE I WILL STILL BE HAPPILY EMPLOYED IN THE 'FOOD SERVICE' INDUSTRY. THESE PEOPLE JUST NEED TO SAY, "HI WE'VE LIVED ANOTHER YEAR ON THE PLANET EARTH AND EVERYBODY IS IN FINE HEALTH. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR FAMILY 'WELL THEN DARN IT COME VISIT US.'"

MY FLYING FRIEND FLIFI IS GONNA START GIVING TIPS TO YOU KIDS.....NOW YOU BEING KIDS SHE WON'T STING YOU BUT YOU COULD USE SOME GOOD SOUND ADVICE....LIKE GIVING A FEW BUCKS FROM YOUR HARD EARNED ALLOWANCE TO A CHARITY AS OPPOSED TO BLOWING IT ALL ON SOME FANCY THINGAMAJIG. CAN YOU KIDS THINK OF ANY OTHER 'FAIRY TALE FIGURE' WHO WILL GIVE YOU REAL LIFE ADVICE?

IT DOESN'T MATTER TO THE 'EVIL EMPIRE' THAT WE'RE IN A RECESSION. EEEEEEEEEEEEEK THE YANKEES JUST SPENT OVER 400 MILLION BUCKS FOR PLAYERS AND THEY'RE STILL NOT DONE. NO WONDER FATHER AND I HATE THEM MORE THAN ANY OTHER SPORTS TEAM AND THE CELTICS WHO JUST WON 19 STRAIGHT WELL THEY'RE NUMBER 2. BEING CHICAGO SPORTS FANS AND HAVING HAD LITTLE RECENT SUCCESS WE JUST HATE TEAMS THAT HAVE HAD SO MUCH SUCCESS.

OMIGOSH I WAS SO TIGHT IN MY SPENDING THIS YEAR, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, JUST A FEW INEXPENSIVE ITEMS FOR MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. I WENT SHOPPING AT A LOCAL DES MOINES 'WAREHOUSE' STORE AND ALL THE PEOPLE WERE BUYING BASIC THINGS LIKE FOOD AND CLOTHES WHILE ALL THE EXPENSIVE THINGS LIKE HDTV'S AND BLUE RAY DISK RECORDERS WERE JUST SITTING THERE ON THE SHELVES. YOU KIDS NEED TO REALIZE TIMES ARE TOUGH AND YOU MAY HAVE TO BE SATISFIED WITH GETTING SAY WARM CLOTHES FOR XMAS AND WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR TO GET THAT FANCY THINGAMAMJIG.

WHILE I'LL BE WRITING MY CHRISTMAS STORY FOR 2008 TOMORROW YOU PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN IT NEED TO TAKE A PEEK AT LAST YEAR'S XMAS STORY 'A CELEBRATION OF YULE.'

OHHHHHHH WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN OPINIONS AND THINKING BETWEEN MY CONSERVATIVE LEFT BRAINED FATHER AND MY LIBERAL LEANING RIGHT BRAINED UNCLE BOB. BUT THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT, MEETING ALL THE INTERESTING PEOPLE WHO ARE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN A WHILE. YOU PEOPLE WILL GET TO SEE MORE ABOUT BOB IN MY CHRISTMAS STORY TOMORROW. THE MERRIEST OF CHRISTMASES, HANUKKAHS, KWANZAAS, YULES, AND CELEBRATIONS OF THE 'WINTER SOLSTICE' TO YOU ALL.
