There was a light dusting of snow falling from the ground when Mom, Mitchel and I left the ice skating rink to watch the ice skating show. The snow stopped falling after roughly thirty minutes with most of the snow melted away. So there is nothing for me to shovel from the driveway. And I worked at Bob Evans Restaurant the next day. Morning has arrived. I woke up. I'm surfing the Internet for a bit before getting ready to start a new day. It's dark outside. One look at the calendar reminds me how close the Gentle Reader and I are to Christmas day. Roughly less than forty-eight hours left to be before Christmas. Christmas Day is almost upon us all. I'm ready for the Christmas Day celebration to begin.

The night before last night, I had a tough choice between microwave popcorn and a can of a small can of pineapple. The small can of pineapple prevailed. I went to sleep. I woke up the next morning. I worked at Bob Evans Restaurant yesterday. I was given the task of busing tables. After dinner at Mom's house, Mom, Mitchell and I traveled to the ice skating rink where my sister Dani worked as an accountant at. Mom, Mitchell and I sat with Dani's spouse Jim Jr., his parents Jim sr. and Mary Lou, his brother Rob and my nephew Danny James. My sister Dani was helping in the women's locker room while my niece Jenny Lou ice skated with the other students at the ice skating rink ice skating class. After talking in the ice skating rink lobby after the show, everybody but Dani parted company because she needed to help clean up after the show. Mom, Mitchell and I returned home. I went to sleep. I woke up a few minutes ago and ready to face another day at Bob Evans Restaurant.

Yeah, I won't object if I received an all expense vacation to Hawaii. Though it's not snowing and no ice to justify a vacation to Hawaii, it's certainly cold enough in Columbus, Ohio to make the journey to the tropics. Plus, any day anybody receives an all expense paid vacation to a tropical paradise such as Hawaii is a good day. What kind of person would turn down an all expense paid vacation to Hawaii anyway? Even if the person is a born again Christian, there's the chance to street preach about Jesus in Hawaii while wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Though it's also ok to sit on the beach to see the waves crash upon the shore. What kind of person would turn down an all expense paid vacation to Hawaii? I have trouble figuring out who that person would be. Yeah, a person would have to be pretty messed up to turn down such a thing.

The green Christmas isn't just limited to the city of Columbus, Ohio. Stricken by a drought, most of California is stricken by a brown Christmas. However, bolstered by mountain top snow and a massive thunderstorm courtesy of the Pineapple Express storm, California is green again. That's not to say that Global Warming is no longer a huge issue, because Global Warming is still a huge issue that needs to be attended to. However, the Hawaiian Islands derived Pineapple Express storm brings a much needed splash of rain water in a painfully drought stricken environment. So the bright green grass is back in California---For right now at any rate.

The entertainment industry can be a risky and unpredictable form of employment. What worked flawlessly in one production turns into a flop when reproduced without any changes in a separate production. Here is a perfect example. Bad Judge starring Kate Walsh, Tone Bell, Ryan Hansen, John Ducey and Miguel Sandoval which is produced by Chad Kultgam, Anne Heche, Chris Henchy, Will Ferrell, Kate Walsh, Adam McKay, Betsy Thomas and Jill Sobel Messick has been the latest of the fall season 2014 to 2015 television season to be canceled. NBC has committed to airing thirteen episodes of the single camera, no live audience nor laugh track sitcom Bad Judge, but only nine episodes has been aired on television so far. I'm surprised that the television series Bad Judge was canceled so quickly since the television series had a striking resemblance to the January 4, 1984 to May 31, 1992 television sitcom Night Court which broadcasted 193 episodes across nine seasons. What exactly did Night Court do right which Bad Judge failed to accomplish is a question that I'll never find an answer for since both sitcoms are exactly the same. You can lead the audience to the television set, but you can't make them watch the television program.

Well, it looks as if the North Korean terrorist cyber hacker organization The Guardians of Peace have won the latest round. In response to the Guardians of Peace leaking the Japanese owned Sony Pictures private e-mails of corporate executives, leaked free movies on anti-American pro Communism terrorism web sites and threatened to bomb and gun down movie theater customers, Sony Pictures have canceled the James Franco and Seth Rogen action adventure comedy The Interview. The Interview was about two slacker newspaper reporters who land the scoop of the century by getting an interview with hard line Communism dictator Kim Jung-Un. But since North Korea is an enemy of the United States which makes business deals with North Korea illegal, the CIA forces James Franco and Seth Rogen to assassinate Kim Jung-Un while interviewing him---Except James Franco and Seth Rogen are inept when it comes to assassinating terrorism supporting pro-Communism enemies of the United States. With the wacky and zany action adventure comedy film The Interview canceled in all formats by Sony Pictures forever, The Gentle Reader and myself will never know if James Franco and Seth Rogen ever succeeded in actually killing North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un. And some poor soul who put himself in financial debt making this film will lose everything in a futile attempt to repay all of his bills because this has turned out to be a flop of the worst proportions. The actual CIA (Not the movie version) and Homeland Security continues to investigate the North Korean terrorist cyber hacker organization The Guardians of Peace and their links to America hating hard line Communist North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un and their threats against both Hollywood and movie theater attending customers.

I'm not sure if the Gentle Reader has heard of the brand new movie entitled The Interview starring James Franco and Seth Rogen. It's the second time they acted together in a movie. The horror movie comedy This Is The End was their first collaboration. Well, the second collaboration between the two actors is much more controversial. Two slacker newspaper reporters get the opportunity of a lifetime to interview Hard line Communism Marxist country North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un---The third in the Kim Dynasty of North Korea. Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jung-Il are the first two in the Kim Dynasty of North Korea. Anyway, in the fictional movie, the CIA learns about the newspaper interview and draft James Franco and Seth Rogen to assassinate Jim Jung-Un while interviewing him. You see, The Korean War (Kim Il-Sung was dictator of North Korea at the time) lasted for three years, one month and two days between June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. And cease fire with clear national boundaries set is not the same as a truce. And since the United States of America and it's ally South Korea is still technically at war against North Korea, the CIA found an opening to end the war completely by having James Franco and Seth Rogen assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un.
North Korea and it's dictator Kim Jung-Un isn't pleased about it. In a nation where the person reading the evening news on television also wears a military uniform, no official retaliation was made. However, cyber hackers made computer hacking attacks against the Japanese Corporation Sony in the Korean language. Hard drives were erased. Private e-mail in which Sony corporate executives were insulting A list stars needed to star in their films on corporate e-mail accounts and weirdly never erased were leaked. An offer was made to watch the latest all African-American (With Cameron Diaz as the main villain) rendition of Annie (The third film version of the Broadway musical based on a comic strip) for free before it's even released was leaked on the Internet. All you have to do is log on to hard line Communism supporting web sites and you can watch the third film installment of Annie for free. Suicide bombing death threats was made against any movie theater showing the Sony Pictures release the Interview. The glitzy A List premier of the Interview was canceled when either Kim Jung-Un or computer hackers loyal to him made death threats against it. At any rate, the zany comedy the Interview become controversial and Sony Pictures is planning to release it anyway no matter the price involved. James Franco and Seth Rogen isn't going to let North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un and his army of North Korean computer hackers push them around.

It rained for a little bit last night and it's starting to rain right now. It's a loud noisy rain that you can hear from inside the house if you listen hard enough. While the rain last night only lasted less than an hour, the rain that's going on right now might last for a bit longer than an hour. So I guess dry weather isn't going to be a part of the picture this morning. Hey, I don't mind. I can handle it. Anyway, good morning Gentle Reader. Time to enjoy some breakfast. Time to get ready to start a brand new day. With luck, the day will be full of wonder and optimism. And most important, morning is the chance to enjoy a steaming mug of coffee. Ah yes, a steaming mug of coffee is the best way to start the day.

And thus starts a brand new week in Columbus, Ohio. For those who either doesn't live in the United States of America or does live in the United States of America, but flunked this portion of geography, Columbus, Ohio is the capitol of the state of Ohio. Columbus, Ohio is where the state legislature makes all the crucial laws that governs the state of Ohio. Columbus, Ohio is where the Governor of Ohio conducts business. Columbus, Ohio is home to Ohio State University---Home of the Buckeyes Football Team---One of the best college football teams in the United States of America. Always recruiting some of the best college football players, the Ohio State University Buckeyes Football Team rarely loses a college football game. Or rather, the Citizens of Columbus, Ohio are always so spoiled by the Ohio State University Buckeye Football Team rarely losing a football game that the Ohio State University Buckeyes Football Team is held to a higher standard of excellence. The Ohio State University Buckeyes Football Team is playing against the University of Alabama Crimson Tide in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday, January 1, 2015 on 8:30 PM. Go Buckeyes.

I rarely get the chance to sleep late on Sunday morning. Normally, it's either off to Sunday morning church or working minimum wage at Bob Evans. Way back in the 1970's and most of the 1980's, I did neither because the family was Jewish at the time. I really didn't convert to Christianity until 1992. By then, I normally would have a Sunday morning work shift. I'm employed by the restaurant industry normally in the form of dishwashing or janitorial work. The weekend is normally, the busiest time for the restaurant industry. As a result, a bulk of my work hours would be on both Saturday and Sunday. Having no snow on the ground makes it easier to transport the trash to the trash dumpster. Still, though I'm hoping for snow while not looking forward to shoveling the snow from the driveway, it doesn't look as if there will be snow this coming Christmas. Christmas is coming. Time to spread the Christmas cheer.
