Is Rusty Still in the Navy?

Traditions are rich in the Chubby Chick household.  At Christmas time, our outdoor lights are turned on by 4PM on Thanksgiving Day and our tree is up on Black Friday.  Though it my look like Christmas, the season is not officially kicked off until we watch Christmas Vacation.  It is one night I look forward to every year.  The kids are in bed*, the glow of the Christmas tree illuminates the room, we have a Hugh Jass bowl of popcorn with an undisclosed amount of butter, and our favorite beverage in hand. This year we were a little late with welcoming Christmas as hockey dictated the schedule and we were not able watch this movie until last night.
This movie never gets old.  Is Christmas Vacation part of your tradition?  If so,what is your favorite quote?

*We exercised some really bad parenting judgement and let the kids watch the movie with us one year.  Oops.  They still talk about the middle finger they saw during the  "Hey kids, look a deer!" part. 

Back to blogging about other randomness.  Please pardon the ADD mind dump posting. 

Thank you to everyone that found me on My Fitness Pal (I am "prell003).  I like that I can be kept accountable.  My goal is to lose 10lbs by the end of the year.  I started this goal on Monday so I have a full 5 weeks.  It is lofty but doable.

I have been making smoothies in the morning before I go to work and I am in LOVE with my creation of the "Sewage Smoothie".  It looks like loose stool but it tastes amazing.  I always put spinach, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, water, milk, or juice, and random fruit.  I have been playing around with different ingredients and I don't have a lot to choose from.   I am allergic to most protein powders, cannot have wheat or gluten, and bananas are out of the question.  This concoction tastes good and actually keeps me satisfied.

I signed up for the Polar I guess that means I have a goal and a reason to get off my butt and run.
How can I love to run but need to pay in order to be motivated?  Crazy logic.

are you kidding me? we have pretty much the same traditions, except my movie watching usually involves at least a half-liter of vodka.

favorite quotes:
"shitter was full."
"i don't know what to say, except it's christmas and we're all in misery."
"hallelujah! holy shit. where's the tylenol?"

I think I'm going to adopt your tradition as my own :)

Are you doing the half Polar Dash? Or 10k? I did the half in Chicago in January, and it was a lot of fun!

(and I know I owe you an email - I haven't forgotten, really!)

Dorothy of Oz is sure to be an instant classic for the whole family. The film is due out next year but the buzz being created is undeniable. Between the vastly talented cast and the original music, how could you not be excited! Glee's Lea Michele is in the title role as Dorothy Gale and she will bring such a fresh sound to the legendary character. Let us not forget Martin Short, Bernadette Peters, Kelsey Grammer, Dan Aykroyd, and many more bringing life to both new and older familiar characters!! Dorothy of Oz has all the components to be the new family favorite!

Nice to get caught up with you, Carly! We NEED to watch Christmas Vacation again! Thanks for the reminder. Nice rink. Ours is little and not as fancy, but it is almost completely skatable, I think it is as of tonight! Hope you had a great Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Kids are far more in beat to present day promoting mania than most parents realize. The companies of television set and stations that happen to be meant for kids decide on and manage adverts which are in particular developed to draw in a persons vision with this young target audience. Today's babies are far more competent at influencing the acquiring selections of the mom and dad than previously. Whether it is food items, leisure, or style children have knowledge of what they want and they've got no problem making their moms and dads know, way too. When they've noticed them from the mall, on the web, being used by their preferred tunes star or found out about them within the stereo, the majority of the current trend-mindful kids want their own pair of little one ugg sheepskin boots boot.

Just as the gods used WWII to justify positioning an influx of new technologies so will they use the impending pestilence which kills over half the world's population to justify positioning historical medical advances, including the "cure of aging", initiating the "1000 years with Jesus on Earth", advances which have already occurred courtesy of biotechnology.
We've seen this tactic used recently with AIDS, targetted at homosexuals and blacks in Africa with the biotechnology product. The gods control everything on Earth, and althugh sold AIDS to your enemies as revenge, their real purpose was to enlighten you regarding sex:::Back-handed help. It was very effective with homosexuals in the USA, but sex is among the most powerful temptations with Africans. Remeber it is always the gods:::Slavery, AIDS, drive-bys, crack babies, pimps prostituting 10 year-old girls. And, contrary to your belief the victim doesn't go anywhere, they are reincarnated back to Earth like everyone else when we die.
Then, as promised, The End will come with fire::::Global tectonic subduction.

Don't forget the lessons the 'ole white preacher taught:::Dancing is a sin, spare the rod spoil the child.
The gods used the liberal tool to ridicule away so many taboos, paving the way for the decay of society and ultimately the End Times::::::
Black behavior was controlled by the "KKK". Men's behavior was controlled by marriage for thousands of years.
When married by 15 men never gained the taste of promiscuity. Once the gods used the budding liberalism tool the men set the tone for the deteriorating enviornment centered around their gross disfavor.
Women's relinquishing control of pre-arranged marriage will be what costs mankind everything in The End. It's all their fault. Men are pigs, essentially just primally responsive disfavored beings who if given the freedom will abuse based on the impulses the god's push them into. Whereas under pre-arranged marriage this behavior was contained now the promiscuous fraternity house epitomizes the pinnicle of what a "real man" should be like. And sadly the women fall into line.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth, matching our decay, but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend as a child in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity.

As with so many things in this life "less is more". Sex is one of those things. They used the liberal age to promote casual "free" sex intentionally::Combined with "women's lib" and their initiation into the "trenches" of the workplace as well as other issues like alcohol consumption the people experienced a mass masculinization of the females.
The gods use sex as temptation. This is why the most disfavored among us are preoccupied with it. While some may feel being well-endowed is a sign of favor the truth is just the opposite. And often the result is misogyny, a belittling of the favored gender, and stagnation of the people as a whole.
Less is more. When young women experience passing thoughts which say you're doing something wrong instead of fighting or dismissing the thought you should heed the warning. Sadly in today's world too many experience prolonged periods of promiscuity in their lives, whereas if married by 15 like throughout human history this disfavor was avoided.
Don't forget:::It is children who ascend into heaven, and the absence of sexual activity is one reason. Their general innocence is another, which should help you see the destructive nature of adult life in today's society.
