12 Days of the Richardson Household

12: How many times my Dad mentioned today (Christmas Day) that Johnny Damon is now a New York Yankee.
11: How many times I said I didn't care (I ignored him the 12th time)
10: The amount of dollars I got from my Grandmother (but give her the benefit of the doubt, she's old, and could have forgotten that I lost my job and live in Taxachussetts)
9: The age of my cousin, who couldn't stop rubbing her iPod nano in my face.
8: The amount of papercuts from helping my mom wrap gifts (me and the roll of gift wrap have never been introduced)
7: The amount of times I woke up from the toilet flushing next to my room. (Grandpa suffers from overactive bladder.
6: The time I woke up and did not fall back asleep.
5: The age of the cousin who hit me in between the legs while I was drinking hot cocoa.
4: The age of the cousin who hit me in between the legs while I was drinking hot cocoa.
3: The amount of presents I got.
2: Comes after:
1: The amount of people connected to reality in my hometown.

PS I'm iPodless this Christmas...there is no Santa Claus. Or he doesn't read my blog. Then again who does? No one comments!

Santa's a Bullet

On the long bus ride home I discovered something that one would only discover on an epic bus ride from Boston to upstate New York, that my two year old ipods battery is definitely on its last legs. I was only using it when I was commuting from work on the bus, but thats on average 20-40 minutes. No where near my 6 hour bus ride...

So, I write this blog, in hopes Santa is watching me, but its almost 11:15pm EST, and Santa is no doubt on own epic journey. I'm gonna assume Santa's much like a bullet, kinda tough to change course once you've blasted out of the barrell. But Santa, I would love a new iPod for Christmas, just because well, six hours, I mean come on, what am I supposed to do, read?

Christmas Eve was spent over at the Grandparents, with my Dad going out of his way to mention how much he loves living close to his parents, and how important family is. If I didn't know better I'd say these were subtle shots to my decision to live in Boston. But, then again, I'm not known to pick up subtleties.

Anywho. The sooner I get to bed, the sooner Santa drops off my new iPod (right Santa?)

Happy Holidays

I'm heading home for 2 weeks until after the New Year! And with all these interviews I haven't been able to get together with Harry for some new episodes! But, in his tricky ways he came up with a little holiday card for everyone so I hope you enjoy it.

It's been a crazy few weeks, I won't give anything away so we don't ruin the surprises coming up, but I'll tell you something, we're taking Simon to the next level!

I'll post in here while I'm up in NY so we don't lose touch! I'm sure home will be a bucket full of adventure, too bad Harry can't bring his camera...

Two Packets of Ketchup and a New Yankee

McDonald's drive-thru once again, but $2.10 for a double cheesburger and small fries is a steal, or something. Still looking for a job, in fact its taken up 100% of my time. We were unable to shoot anything for Hello Simon this week, but Harry is coming up with something creative.

But back to my rant about McDonalds...I asked the drive-thru man for ketchup, and paid no heed to how many he provided me with. Two. Two Ketchup packets. What is the world coming to? What ever happened to the excessive handful? Its a sign of the times, McDonald's is losing revenue, and the handful of ketchup is a thing of the past.

My Dad called today, rubbed it in my face that Johnny Damon signed with the Yankees. After listening to him for fifteen minutes, I had to remind him that I didn't really care. He said, all right, see you this weekend and hung up. Fifteen minutes gone...

I need a job.

yes its true

I've had multiple questions on myspace if I really lost my job, yes I did, I lost it a week ago, which was why we decided to deal with it in this weeks episode.

I'm in the process of getting ready to go out on a series of interviews. At this point, I'll take anything. I just need to make it through the winter!

Nice Night for a Slay Ride

Get it? Slay?

I'd like to give credit where credit is due, this reference to Slay at least in this instance was lifted from the Holiday classic...Ernest Saves Christmas. Christmas is a festive time of year, and well, nothing says good time like Ernest P. Warrol (did I spell that right?)

I was at the local mall this weekend, there were carolers that caught my attention. I realize these carolers are there mainly to improve business at the Santa Claus Photo Concession (to which I did not partake), but there was a serious lack of quality in the performers.

The reason I bring up slay is because that is exactly what I wanted to do to the dragon that sang a solo of White Christmas. I was ready to turn it into a red christmas, and I'm not sure who would've made it red, but my own life was seriously under consideration.

Stay tuned, episode 4 is going up tonight, with a harsh revelation I've been keeping a secret.
