So whats everyone doing for Christmas?

We just got back from My dads place for Christmas eve dinner. Holy Cow did I friggin eat too much. I swear My dad and his wife cooked for a friggin army tonight.

Oh did I mention my presents came from IL Harley

Tomarrow we are off to Marlenes family. where we will proceed to eat like slobs drink like sailors and watch the Bears beat the packers like they were little girl scouts.


Right now I'm kickin back listening to some Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray vaughn. life is good




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I here you! I made a big stink because I decided to go over to my mom's house tonight, thus sticking it to my uncle and forcing him to pick up my grandma for Christmas Dinner...The reason...so I would not miss one minute of the Bears Game (we eat early).

My prediction...Bears 54 Green Bay 3

Working. What a rip! I am sneaking my little portable TV into work so I won't miss the Bears game. Even though I live in Denver now. Every day I wear my Urlacher jersey with pride! Yee Haw!

My prediction: Don't care as long as Da Bears win and Brett Favre gets his ass knocked out with a cuncussion.

We made the trek down to Tennessee for Christmas with her parents last night (middle TN) and my parents & grandparents tomorrow morning west TN). There are 11 of us in the house including our 2 little boys - chaos is coming....


I've only seen about a half-dozen bikes out with weather in the 50's and decent (until rain & fog today).

If that's the case I'll be at the Northern IL Medical Center in McHenry wearing the blue flight jumpsuit from our Flight For Life Helicopter. Or, if you're in the Rockford area my wife works for St. Anthony's Medical center as an RN on the Lifeline Helicopter tomorrow as well. I am envious of the fiddys though. I'd love to get one for my kids but they have to learn to ride the bikes we got them for X-mas first!

Doing nothing. Got a call from my dad last night telling me my mom had the Flu, but they still wanted us to come down. OK, no problem. To my surprise, my GF has been throwing up all night and has a lot of flu like symptoms. Needless to say, we aren't going anywhere.

Well, I'm making a trip to Walgreen's right now to get some stuff for my GF. Does anyone know of any places open today that sells food around Joliet? We have no food in the house. I was of course planning on tearing into mom's Christmas dinner, but of course that is no longer. UGGGGGGGGGGG.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

In memory of FastBlueR1...RIP

A lot of Chinesse joints are open on Christmas. Up until a few years ago that was my family's traditional Christmas dinner.

I'll just be spending the day here at my parents eating and watching football.

It really pains me to type this but as a Viking fan it must be done.....

Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

We had my side of the family over. 6 kids and adults. It looks like a paper bomb went off. I ate and drank like a pig. I'm going to finish my coffee and get started on cleaning as we get Grace's side tonight.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.

Went to my mom's cousin's house last night. Drank too much, my mom's other cousin put my pain in the ass aunt in her place , good times. This afternoon my mom, dad, stepmom, stepbrother, candice's mom, mom's boyfriend, sister, and dad are coming over. I know it sounds like a fight ready to happen but all the ex's seem to get along ok . I already got some dirtbike related stuff from Candice. I'm hoping her and my mom conspired so there will be more dirtbike/motorcyle related gifts coming with mom.

Yesterday, hung out around the house. Today, had breakfast at IHOP (Frank's Diner in Kenosha was closed) then took the scenic route home. I've got a roast in the oven and later we'll be dining on that along with all the trimmings.

Best wishes everyone!
