1. I am pissed they changed the oldies station "COOL 96.9" to "96.9 The Eagle."

My house is officially under contract after being on the market a total of 10 days. And the best part about it is..... we got our asking price!!!! No negotiating or stupid people wanting extra stuff - just a cool 181K. Man, God is good.
So where are we going to live? 11 East Forsyth. Thats right, downtown. I will be able to walk to work and save gas, not to mention the life of my car. Jennifer works downtown off beaver street so that will save gas, time, and wear on the car too. Here is the floor plan for the apartment:
One other great thing is this -- I can see all of my properties, except one, from the apartment, so now, whenever I need to be at work for supervisory purposes only I can just look out of the window:
**Not a great picture (i got it off their website) but this is the actual view from our actual apartment.

I've been converted:
14 What can we say? Was God being unfair? Of course not! 15 For God said to Moses, "I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose." F44 16 So receiving God's promise is not up to us. We can't get it by choosing it or working hard for it. God will show mercy to anyone he chooses. 17 For the Scriptures say that God told Pharaoh, "I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you, and so that my fame might spread throughout the earth." F45 18 So you see, God shows mercy to some just because he wants to, and he chooses to make some people refuse to listen. 19 Well then, you might say, "Why does God blame people for not listening? Haven't they simply done what he made them do?" 20 No, don't say that. Who are you, a mere human being, to criticize God? Should the thing that was created say to the one who made it, "Why have you made me like this?" 21 When a potter makes jars out of clay, doesn't he have a right to use the same lump of clay to make one jar for decoration and another to throw garbage into? 22 God has every right to exercise his judgment and his power, but he also has the right to be very patient with those who are the objects of his judgment and are fit only for destruction. 23 He also has the right to pour out the riches of his glory upon those he prepared to be the objects of his mercy – 24 even upon us, whom he selected, both from the Jews and from the Gentiles.

Things I hate about CHRISTmas
Don't get me wrong, I love CHRISTmas (and yes I pronounce it like that). We have had our tree up since before thanksgiving day and Ive been listening to 96.9 non-stop; ever since they started playing CHRISTmas music non-stop. There are however some CHRISTmas traditions and songs I hate/want to kill.
1. Fake christmas trees (Ill stop capitalizing as if you can read the inflection in my voice):
I hate fake christmas trees that try to look like REAL christmas trees. They are all like "Look at me I am scrawny and bent and dont smell good so I bring out the real emotions of christmas, nevermind the fact that I'm made of cheap imitation garabage recycled from plastic beer bottles." They are just pretty much for satan and his spawn.
Yes, we have a fake christmas tree, ours is not, however, posing as a real tree. It is a fiber optic tree that changes colors. It has embraced its fakeness and proclaimed to all "I am not a real christmas tree so I will strive to be the best fake christmas tree in the world!" Plus we buy a minature real christmas tree in a pot to help keep our feng shui in balance.
2. The traditional christmas dinner.
Why is it always the same things we ate at thanksgiving? I think the Jews got it right with the latkas and brisket.
3. The fact that once Christmas is over - its over.
Its like the day after chrismas is like July 17 1945 - Everything is quiet and christmas is over. Its like all of a sudden we dont have to be in the Christmas spirit anymore. I think the Jews got it right again - Multiple days of celebration.
4. Cards that say "Happy Holidays."
These are just gay.
5. The song "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer."
There is so much wrong with this song its not funny.
~*You know dasher and dancer and prancer, and vixen, comet and cupid and donder and blitzen*~ (Thank you for telling me what i know - sounds like the reindeer version of the villiage people)*~ but do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?*~(well seeing as how the definition of the word famous means "well known" and you have told us we already know the lessers of the "well knowns" - Gotta love syntactical redundancy)~*Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows~* (so he HAD a shiny nose buw not its changed so that it glows? Are we talking about evolution here? - You obviously cannot have something that is glowing and shiny)*~ All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names, they never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games ~*(Poor Rudolph? Poor Rudolph!!? What about poor innocent children have to learn that they are wrong for not playing with deformed freaks who are mostly likely emitting radiation out of their glowing red nose!)*~ Then one foggy, christmas eve ~*(Fog? Give me a break - was it fog or SNOW jackasses. Wasnt anyone paying attention during earth science!! They are on the north pole!!)~* santa came to say "Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" ~*(So did he come to say or ask? And where exactly did he come from? )*~ Then how the reindeer loved him, as they shouted out with glee ~*(Let me get this straight, love is derived only from popularity and social status? Yeah thats a good lesson for kids - And what kind of freakish reigndeer are these that can shout and sing? A production of evolution? - I think darwin would have loved this song)*~ Rudolph the red nosed reigndeer you'll go down in history*~ (I'm just glad its over with).
