    My mom used to read my blog and then I was like “dude, I can’t write freely if you read it.” And she says to me, she says “Okay, I won’t read it from now onwards.”

    That made me so happy and yet so sad. I’m a mean son, but dude, I can’t be myself when blogging knowing that my mom’s reading!

    Moms googled me once and one of my first posts pops up which was all about hump-niques. Couldn’t have been more graphic or inappropriate. Maybe if she was name-dropped in it. And i just threw up in my mouth.

    That’s classic – humpniques. At least she knows you’ll keep your future girlfriends happy.

    Welcome to my world. I think my mom is the only person who reads my blog. Hi Mom!

    Why has nobody commented on the main issue here? Am I dumb, or was this blog not about the Christmas / Holiday thing? I think it’s sad that Americans can’t learn to accept and celebrate each others’ differences instead of trying to assimilate everybody into one gigantic PC-family-friendly blander version of their real selves.

    Here’s the point:

    Corell4556: I could care less
    Terriblewriter: Yeah, me neither

    This post could have been a debate over flat or sparkling water…it just wouldn’t be as festive.

    Well – to be on the fair side of things – TSS makes a good point, the world is becoming too PC. I was watching ‘Sea of Love’ today starring Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin from 1989. The script there was more raw and real than anything that will come out today. Even Hollywood is more refined – everyone is afraid of stepping on their own freaking toes let alone others’. I say Merry Christmas, you filthy animals, and a happy goddamned* new year.

    *’Goddamned’ used intentionally because TBS a cable channel censors it.

    You’re right about Hollywood. I’m sure Focus Features was worried about stepping on toes when it chose to finance Brokeback Mountain.

  10. Dhaval (unregistered) on December 19th, 2005 @ 3:16 pm

    Focus Features is an indie-house.

  11. wetherlyone (unregistered) on December 19th, 2005 @ 6:12 pm

    There actually 5 indie houses backing it. Oh yeah…and Paramount.

  12. Dhaval (unregistered) on December 20th, 2005 @ 2:38 pm

    Yeah yeah. You’re right. But if you watch Sea of Love again, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

    Michael, I just read all of your blogs and I think you drink too much, do too many drugs and say too many disparaging things about women. love, mom
