Merry After-Christmas!

I hope your Christmas was lovely. I missed mine, unfortunately, slept right through it. I was planning to get up early and post a Christmas greeting, but when I got up I immediately became upchuck-sick. Out of the blue. Did that for awhile, then promptly passed out and slept all day long. I was so drousy, I couldn't even answer my Hubs asking me if he could help me. I think I remember just dozing off listening to him.

Anyway, I'm feeling better but still not back to normal. Thought I'd pop in and post a YouTube video of's that is getting some buzz. Watch this and tell me who you think the actor is who is playing Santa:

There is apparently a bit of an argument or debate over who this actor is. A number of people say it is Seth Rogan, and a few say it is Joel McCrary. Still others say Mike Teutel.

So I google imaged all those guys....looked closely at their eyes. vote goes to Joel. Hands Down. I'd bet a couple thousand on it, actually.

So, what do you think? Isn't it wonderful how people can waste time in such interesting ways????? hehehehe

Pilgrim, We're All Muckrakers Now!

With 2 years under my belt of taking out our big blue plastic bin to our curb each Friday filled to the brim with empty water bottles, cardboard packaging, newspapers and the occasional glass bottle, I am beginning to feel positively planet-friendly and a little partiotic to boot. I recently read in my local yocal news upcoming plans to extend our city's recycling program to stage 2: cutting down garbage collection from twice a week to one, and swapping out blue bins from the present size to one a whopping cavern 3 times its size, so big it comes with its own wheels on the bottom.

Then, as I was preening in Do-Good-Glory, I read this:
Recycling Is ... Garbage: Rinsing out tuna cans and tying up newspapers may make you feel virtuous, but recycling could be America's most wasteful activity

Now, I've been spot-on smart at calling out how the Clean Energy Movement underplays the pollution created by their energy sources of choice and overplays the energy sources they hate. I'm on the job 100% not letting myself be sucked into believing that we can actually DO something about climate change, because the facts clearly indicate that changing our entire economy and society to combat it is a pipedream theory at best.

But I guess I under-estimated the ability of Reduce Reuse Recycle to ingratiate itself into my life. It is after all a frugal thing to do. It plays well with my art. And I've heard over and over how it helps lessen the growth of waste dumps by forcing that which can be recycled and repurposed back out into the consumer cycle of manufacturing, marketing, mind control and materialism.

At any rate, I'm at a loss as to what to do next, especially now that I might be breaking the local law by not recycling. Your thoughts on the article? I'd love to hear.
