Christmas Decorating

4 Dec

As you can see, I have decorated my blog for Christmas.

Christmas in the post-War United States

I changed some colour scheme or other so that bits are red instead of green.  It was an accident: I was looking for a way to remove empty boxes from my dashboard.  I rather like the red; don’t you?

The empty boxes are still there, of course.  I’m rubbish at this technical stuff.

I also changed my header, courtesy of the genius Aquatom, who sent me a choice of four Christmas headers out of the blue.  Thank you, Tom!

I am not going with snow this year and I am not changing the theme.  Blame the economy*.

*It doesn’t cost bloggers anything to change those things but if politicians can blame their laziness to fix things on the economy, then so can I.

 

Joke 986

Thanks to Vivinfrance for today’s joke.

A teenage girl had been talking on the phone for about half an hour, and then she hung up.

“Wow!” said her father.  “That was short.  You usually talk for two hours.  What happened?”

“Wrong number,” she replied.

Ribbons!

Some more from the archive:

A man died and his wife phoned the newspaper to place an obituary.

She called the obituary department and said, “This is what I want to print: Bernie is dead.”

The man at the newspaper said, “But for $25 you are allowed to print six words.”

The woman answered, “OK. Then print: Bernie is dead. Toyota for sale.”

Navy regulations prohibit underwater promotion to the ministry.

Doing so would constitute insubordination.

Government Philosophy:

If it ain’t broke, fix it ’til it is.

The Grim Reaper came for me last night, and I beat him off with a vacuum cleaner.

Talk about Dyson with death.

What noise does a grammatically correct owl make?

‘Whom.’
