A Very Merry Xmas!

Hoping that your holidays are joyous and wonderful or at least that your 2017 year-end is better than usual.

Pissing Off The Right

Lately, it seems that the conservative-right has made an art out of posting things on social media for the sole purpose of annoying/angering the progressive-left.

I believe they often don't even really believe what they write...they just know posting it will piss off people with whom they disagree.

I can't say I haven't done similar things in my past social media postings (except I purposefully tried to piss of the conservative-right...obviously).

For instance, refusing to keep the "Christ in Christmas" and using "holidays" or "Xmas" or Yule-Tide will often get a charge out of the rigid right.  Whenever I see religious comments that demand that we keep the Christ in Christmas, I always respond that I'd prefer they start with keeping the Christ in Christian...because so many of the issues supported by alleged Christians are anything but Christ-like.

All that being said, I really do love the Christmas season.  I still love driving by houses festooned with colored lights, I love the smell of cookies baking and I even love the busy-ness of the local shopping areas.  Hell, I even like Christmas carols.  I'm still NOT a fan of the cold and ice and snow...but with climate change, it seems my Winters have been a lot less frigid than in the past.

Current Knitting

I finished the Interlocking Crochet Scarf and the result  it very nice.

You'll note that I still have a few ends to weave in, but I did keep up on it while I crocheted to make sure I didn't end up with a ton of ends.  The scarf ended up being a little shorter than 5', but the light, drapiness of the superwash merino/nylon blend is almost silk-like...both in terms of the hand of the fabric and the color saturation.  I'm quite pleased with this.
