Christmas Party Pics

Here are some pics from the party I went to tonight at my parent’s house- lots of good food and good company:

I texted the pics to Imani/ABL and told her- “I don’t have to dream for a White Christmas. I have one every year no matter what the fuck I do.”

    Well it sure beats having a black and blue (while still being white) family Christmas gathering!

    Anyone else see Manny Pacquiao get knocked out cold? Crazy KO from one punch. Went down face first and was sleeping for a while.

    @Keith: The one thing that struck me, from reading all of the comments on Twitter about the fight, is the number of people who deplore the epidemic of concussions from football who were cheering on that match.

    You have such a white christmas, even your dogs are white. Y’all don’t even have a cross on top of the tree. Dontcha know he’s the reezun for the seezun? Also, you need a better camera. Those are some pretty crappy photographs if you ask me.

    it’s all Obama’s fault. He sold us out by caving on the war on xmas and lighting the tree so early.

    @mai naem: they look like cell phone pictures to me.

    @The prophet Nostradumbass: What gets me is that journalists can be so high and mighty about steroids, but they turn the other cheek when it comes to fighters (until they actually get caught). Pacquiao’s skull has grown massive in the past few years (check out the size of his orbitals from his lightweight days vs now), yet when someone accuses him of juicing, they flip out like it’s crazy to think the great Manny Pacquiao could take PEDs, as if they have no idea about the science of cycling steroids. Holyfield’s another great example – the guy put on 30 pounds of shredded muscle while his hairline abruptly went halfway up his head, while his eye sockets and jaw started looking like Andre the Giant, but no one wanted to hear he was juicing…until records of “Evan Fields of Georgia” receiving boxes of steroids showed up after Chris Benoit went psycho.
    And yes, it is kind of amazing as well when these guys go off on a crusade against concussions in football, when you have TONS of fighters showing obvious and severe effects of a career based on concussions. You can hold up Ali and Freddie Roach, both of whom have boxing-related Parkinson’s, but there are dozens of high-profile fighters who we’ve seen go from talking clearly to slurring their words. Meldrick Taylor’s a severe case, but I have literally watched James Toney get worse and worse as he got older go from coherent to punch drunk; you can actually see it from one post-fight interview to the next.

    I’m not sure if it’s the camera or the subjects, in the pictures, but they seriously look like all the photos that I have from my family’s X-mas in the 70’s

    @Keith: Boxing promoters don’t make bank by protecting the health of their fighters. They need exciting bloody gladitorial battles that they can hype and get bodies in the seats and eyeballs on pay-per-view. And the boxing press goes right along with it because hey HOOCODANODE amirite? Boxing has been a dirty racket for pretty much its entire existence as a professional sport in the US. All that changes is the level of the scam.

    If it was for Jack Reacher I saw it too.

    He looked quite strange in it, almost as though his character was being done in CGI.

    @Viva BrisVegas: Another one. Sci fi flick called Oblivion. He totally does not fit the character. At. All.

    Cruise is very sensitive about his height — maybe he’s demanding a reverse of the forced perspective that Peter Jackson uses to turn humans-sized actors into hobbits?
