That's it. I renounce voting until politicians stop being retarded. Which means forever.

Put it up without ornaments first, especially if you're sentimental about some!
Already planning on doing that :p And crummy ornaments go at the bottom, good ones up high. Our old dog was never a chewer but he'd knock down low ornaments sometimes since he liked sleeping under the tree.

Might want to avoid the ornaments altogether at first. If your dog knocks them off and eats them, that could be very bad for him. Especially as most ornaments are made of glass.

In order to keep his cats from messing with the tree, my brother left it out bare for a couple of weeks before decorating it. It seems to have worked.

Oh joy, I get to renew my drivers' license this week. I'm going to have to decide what kind of face I want to make for my photo.

To jayhawk: your wife is awesome. :lol:

I don't know what kind of dogs you have, but ours are smart enough to not eat glass.

I love wrapping presents! I especially love all the little ribbons and decorations you can put on them. My cat, unfortunately, finds those delicious, so I always have to wait until the last minute.

True story: a couple of years ago I had wrapped about a dozen gifts for the family. We meet in Dallas, so I had stacked the gifts (without ribbons) on the dining room table in the meantime. The day we're set to leave, I put ribbons on the gifts and start loading the car. In the time it took to put the first load in, Ling had chomped every single bow exactly once.

Nobody gets ribbons on their gifts from me anymore. :(
So you're not one of those nice girls who wraps herself in a ribbon on Christmas night and let your bf open it up?

I kind of wish we had that choice down here. Stupid compulsory voting! I hate all politicians and political institutions....unless some ?ber-smarty comes up with a perfect system of governance that somehow forces all those in positions of power not to act like smarmy lying asshats.

But that isn't going to happen. :(

(If you've been reading my posts today you can tell that) I'm still pissed-off about my flash drive; I went back to class 15 minutes after I left and it had already been pulled off the computer. Who the hell goes around stealing anonymous flash drives in the first place, with loads of personal crap that nobody else could be bothered with? I had two half-completed articles on there, including one about speeding that I was rather enthusiastic about. Well, guess I'll just have to wait until I get pulled over again before I rewrite it.

Oh, and I talked to campus security and the department in charge of the building, and they both said, politely, "you're fucked." :x
When I was working at uni (which was rare because I always prefer working at my own computer at home), I always emailed any document back to myself so I have a back up in case I lose my USB.

I'm so dreading to vote whenever they announce an election (which will either be next year or the year after). I don't wanna vote Labour because K.Rudd's a douche, I don't wanna vote Liberal because Tony Abbott fucked up the health system back when he was John Howard's health minister and he'll probably screw up this role aswell, don't wanna vote green because they'll just think about the environment and nothing else, don't wanna vote independents because no one does and don't wanna vote democrats because they're just...the point is, everyone sucks at politics.

And I have to vote on their failure

You do know that health is primarily the responsibilities of the state, DHS run the hospitals in Victoria with some funding coming from the federal government.

I can has Top Gear on my television now! Finally was able to get my stupid PS3 to copy my Top Gear over from my flash drive, but unfortunately I can't have the latest episodes until I've re-downloaded them in .avi format, because I have the first two in some HD-format that the PS3 doesn't even detect. They're also huge-ass fucking files, anyway. On the downside, downloading the normal .avi format video is going to take AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGES. :cry:

I forgot to eat yesterday. Oops. Um, that's not good. I even missed double spring roll day at the Vietnamese place! I never miss double spring roll day. Aw, fail.
Aww hell. I'm trying to study (at my girl's place) and the fucking neighbor bitch is blasting music so loud it sounds like it's in the room with me.

And it's twangy country-western.

And I'm feeling stabby.

I'd go tell her to turn it down, but then I would have to put on pants. I might just head out and grab food and see how bad it is when I get back. Then I could justify pants.

Actually, going without pants might be more effective.
Pants are overrated. And country now is rubbish. I used to love country, but now: terrible. Bring back George Strait, Clint Black, Alan Jackson, and...the early 90s, really.

I second the idea of blasting Karoug's music back. Mwahahaha...
Another thing, if the teacher has a window open, it's open for a reason. Don't complain about being cold when your dumb ass is wearing a short sleeve shirt yet you have a sweat shirt hanging off the back of your chair. Even if you have it hammered in your head that coats are for outside, use some common sense in knowing that coats are for when you feel cold. I know it may seem hard to the common person, but coats and especially sweat shirts, are for warmth.
I hate having to wear coats inside, so I probably would've complained, too. "You have a heater...use it!"

Dude does sound like a bit of a numbskull/drama queen, though.
My wife has not one political bone in her body; could care less about it. Which is good, being that I have installed a soap box in the living room to rant on.

She found out today that "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is being preempted for the Presidents speech on sending troops to Afghanistan. She adores everything Charlie Brown. If we have a baby girl, it will be named Lucille; no shit.

"That FUCKING TOOL!!"
is what she screamed into the phone when I broke it to her. :lol:
Your wife FTW!

I refuse to wear Christmas shirts, but darn it if I wasn't reallyreally tempted to get one with the Charlie Brown Christmas tree on it the other day. Do want.
Sweet Jesus, my professor found my flash drive! :dance:
w00t!!!

Now if they'd have just fixed the wireless, I wouldn't have had to show the clip for my presentation on my laptop.

Worse: it had subtitles. Luckily it was a small class, but ugh...I hate presentations and I really hate technical problems that make them suck more.

I can't find my stick. My school has a nifty server for students to upload work to that I use a lot, but again...if the intertubes are down...?

Days like today seriously make me want to ask for a refund. "University not as advertised; excessive amount of grief was not included in the description. Also, we peons want our internet fixed in a timely manner."
Someone care to explain to me why I have the selection of eight different channels to watch the presidential address on? Wouldn't one or two suffice? I can't think of any practical reason why 8 networks feel the need to televise the same thing at the same time.
I get the point that spicy said, but this^^^. Eating up every channel at once should be reserved for major national emergencies. As much as I feel for the soldiers and their families who are being sent off at Christmas, this is something that we'll hear on the news anyway. Why did it need to be on every channel?

I voted Liberal last time, and will probably do so again. If you feel that strongly about it, vote for something stupid like the Australian Sex Party, or the Fishing Party.
