On the day after Christmas, a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses showed up at my door and were swiftly sent on their way. What I wonder is this: is December 26th the most successful proselytizing day of the year for Jehovah’s Witnesses? Say you have yet another lousy Christmas with vile, backstabbing relatives and their snotty little children, neglecting none of the family’s ritual humiliations of the season. Fa la la. Then the very next day the Jehovah’s Witnesses show up on your porch. You can hardly help but think, “Hey. Huh. On the one hand… but on the other hand, I’d never have to go through that Christmas shit again.” Seriously, I wonder if there’s a spike there.
Today’s crabbiness is brought to you by the fact that the furnace still doesn’t work. Maybe tomorrow. The romance of heating with wood is somewhat overstated. And it is still too dark out there. But I’m reading all of Transmetropolitan. You know, by Warren “Eat Bear Cocks In Hell, Godboy” Ellis. It never fails to cheer me.
