Merry Christmas, Michigan Nation.
i'm like a giddy 5 year-old who can't wait to see what santa left under the tree.
only, in reality, i always get on a bad sleep schedule during the holidays and end up in zombie mode on christmas mornings.
In zzzzzombie modeeee.
I need to grow up and start drinking coffee. But that hopeless resolution is for New Year's
That there comes the day your chosen profession has you miling about outside. That day happens to be about 40F with a steady light rain, you're cold, wet, and miserable. Salvation arrives in the form of tepid tomato soup and piping hot coffee, choose your poison. I did, and have been an avid connoiseur of coffee these last 35 years.
Currently drinking Carolyn's and dreading my sister's-in-law arrival. She may get punched in the fave if she tries to tell me all Chinese people are short and insist it is not a racist remark again
And as always, beat Ohio State.
unfortunately only sparingly filled.
Merry Christmas from Tucson ... 100 miles southeast of Tempe, where Meechigan is going to play a good game and send Kansas State back home with a "L" on their schedule!
Badazzler for Xmas?
I had an amazing Michigan hat back in 1988... I wish I knew where it was now...
side note... I had michigan curtains when I was 6 and I have kept them since. It is great to be a michigan wolverine!
merry christmas brothers and sisters.
Just finnished setting up,for the kids. It is cold in Ann Arbor tonight.
Merry Christmas and always GO BLUE!!
This blog is a gift I read every day and most days it makes me laugh like crazy. Nice work everyone. Go Blue!
Today, I went to my local beer store in Lubbock, TX in search of a few christmas brews. On a whim, I asked if they had ever gotten Founder's Backwoods Bastard in the past. The outstanding associate said that they had, and went in the back and found the last one they had in stock. Thank you sweet baby Santa Jesus for making this the best possible away-from-home Christmas evar.
That would constitute one, if I ever saw it.
I can't find it on the east side of the state, but you can find it in TX. Figures.
At least I have my dwindling case of Dark Horse BBA Plead The Fifth.
...but way out in the middle of the high plains of West Texas. Good luck to you in your quest for BWB. For what it's worth, this magical experience is worth the 2 or 3 hour drive to Grand Rapids if you do not succeed. The clock is ticking and I'm sure it won't last much longer.
Merry Christmas, and cheers!
Where I can find a signed autographed picture of "The Shot"? I had my chance to get it a while back but I was deployed. Wifey got me a subsitute pic of Trey for Christmas, but its not the same. I haz a sad...
with the picture, but thank you for your service. Happy Holidays
Just finished up setting everything up for the kids. Now finishing up with a snack (milk and cookies), then to bed for a couple hours of sleep before the kiddos are up.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season. Go blue!!!
"Setting up" not "up setting" - think that bottle of wine before the milk and cookies may have had an effect.
I was jumping to defend you from grammar police... Well now I feel silly. Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you too and thanks for trying to defend my honor.
I like it better the first way. I had this wonderful image of a surly dad trashing the living room because his kids had been bad at the family party the night before
Down some ham, slam some eggnog and cherish time with your family. Enjoy it, you beautiful SOB's. Also, you could watch the NBA, but we all know no one really cares about the NBA.
Las Vegas. Tomorrow will be The Hangover, Part IV
Just don't shoot your eye out. However, if you can find a furry convention and get photoed with or in a pink bunny suit and glasses you would be a legend here.
Merry Christmas to all. Thankful for everything I have. So excited that I get to spend Christmas with my niece and nephew. Thank you to Brian and the staff for doing an awesome job and putting up with all the crazy people that visit the blog.
THIS IS NOW A POS BANG THREAD
Alcohol was consumed in the making of this post.
Also merry christmas!!!
The true home of St Nik.
I too am now finally done putting the toys together, didn't know Monster High school had so many things to put together. And so frickin' small!! However like others have noted, maybe the gin and tonics didn't help....
And you all can see where my priorities are, before I go to bed to rest up for a fantastic day with my family, I needed to check in with my UM family. Although anonymous, this blog has a certain comfort that is like a family. So to all, please have a great holiday season, all be safe, and all find peace.
Merry Xmas to Michigan friends everywhere!
this fine Christmas morning. Going to hopefully get home just in time for the kids to get up. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
So we've opened presents at all different times of the day and night over the years.
Thanks so much to all the MgoStaff for all their work and insight. Y'all truly make each week and this brutal season tolerable/enjoyable. Brian, your prose is second to none. Keep up the good work and may the new year bring peace and joy to the MgoCommunity. And aside from everything that happened prior to April 6, the year 2013 can go fuck itself.
Now go win this weekend guys!
You all avoid paper cuts from wrapping paper.
Thanks for all of the entertainment you all provided on the blog this year. May 2014 be a much better year for us all.
And I exchanged gifts last night. She got me a pair of Michigan men's bball tickets. I'm pretty stoked for that. Merry Christmas everyone!
Your wife got you a pair of Michigan men's bball ticket.
Let me guess. You got your wife a pair of Michigan men's bball tickets too.
How dare you say Merry Christmas.
I don't even celebrate Christmas (I'm Jewish) and I find it insane when people get offended by others saying merry Christmas.
Does anyone really get offended or do news stations act like they do so they have stories to scream about?
