Happy Saturday to you!
The holidays are looming larger every day now and, I don't know about you, but it's giving me a migraine. Lots of stress and craziness, mostly surrounding who's getting what for whom and constantly wondering if they're overdoing it or not doing enough. This is why, a long long time ago, when I was around 8 or 9 years old, I put a cash-only policy in place and let everyone in the extended family know about it. It's a simple way for me to get past all the holiday worrying about whether I'm going to get underwear, clothes or something else I might "need." To me, the holidays aren't just about giving. They're about giving things to people that they don't "need" (food) but just "want" (20 gallon drum of peanut butter ;)
It works out great for everyone else, too, because they always know that they're getting me exactly what I want. If they ever doubt that what they're giving isn't enough, the fix is simple: just include a little extra cash to go with the cash they're already getting me. If they ever fear that they may be giving me too much, my policy includes a "no such thing" clause, under which "too much" is specifically listed ;)
In any event, I hope your holidays, and the festivities that accompany them, are going well for you. This week's Saturday humor is, yet again, from the folks over at LinuxScrew.com. A few more pictures that should make you laugh-on-the-inside at worst ;) You can, of course, check out the page in its original context at LinuxScrew's Official Weekly Humor Page. Although the material here hasn't been altered (just the formatting), you should stop by there and check out their Linux and Unix humor archives. It's not "all" funny, but the stuff that doesn't make you laugh will make the stuff that does make you laugh seem even funnier! :)
For the record, may favorite picture is the "Russian Linux" mascot ;)
Enjoy and Cheers,
