it’s friday, bitches!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 24, 2009 by Sophia

well, okay, it’s only thursday, but tomorrow’s christmas, and i have the day off so i won’t be blogging.

this year, for the first time ever, i’m finding myself spending the yuletide season in san francisco. i’ve lived here for almost 10 years and i haven’t seen christmas in the bayarea.

so let’s see…definitely no snow, not a lot of family gatherings to witness, most of the residents (at least in my neighborhood) are away.

no wonder no good san francisco christmas song exists.

so here’s crap:

crappier:

and crappiest:

merry christmas, everybody!

popos with a sense of humor from kenosha, wisconsin (where we used to do part of our christmas shopping!) bring you their version of “12 days of christmas”:

i like the last portion: the all-white staff float their headshots around to the tune of “white christmas.” now that’s comedy.

it’s funny because it’s not me

mr. bolivia wins the “mr. international 2009” competition, a beauty pageant complete with a swimsuit portion. 

hubba hubba

aside from possessing good looks and a great physique (which he maintains by working out for 2 hours everyday), the judges claim that he “has no bad habits.”  ¡enhorabuena, senorito bolivia! 

filipinos love this stuff.  here’s a video clip of pretty pinoys competing to represent the country:

it sure is, bitches!  and only one week before christmas!  i’m buzzing with glee!

i didn’t grow up watching charlie brown (though i did own a snoopy pencil case and pink prescription glasses), so please spare me the allusions to lucy and charlie brown- i won’t get it. 

however, i do get why this tune is considered a classic.  simply put, it’s exquisite. 

i love the feeling of quiet magic and solitude the fusion of soft chorus and solo piano inspires in me.  it’s as though  i’m watching glittering snowflakes gently fall from the winter sky and collect on naked tree branches outside my bedroom window. 

enjoy the last weekend before christmas!

great gift #7

barack h. obama

i "hope" they recognize me

this is a dubious depiction in oil of the current U.S. president, but it looks more like the love-child of tiger woods and nicolas cage to me.

it doesn’t really matter.  all three luminaries (obama, woods, cage) are hot in the press right now anyway.  so whoever it is you perceive in the portrait, it’s still a headline-making celebrity.
