He’s making a list, and Czeching it twice…

Blog Guy, I need to tap your background in psychology. I can’t get my husband to enjoy the Christmas holidays. When he sees festive decorations he just breaks down and sobs.

Hmmmm. Did he by any chance grow up in Prague?

Why yes, he spent his childhood there!

I thought as much. Have a look at these photos from Prague, where revelers dressed as Saint Nicholas and a devil approach small children on the street and demand to know if they’ve been good or bad. It’s enough to warp any child for life.

Will you be taking those grenades all the way to Belgium?

Sometimes I just don’t understand stuff, so maybe you can help me with this exercise in logic.

The security folks at Newark’s airport were X-raying checked baggage a few days ago when they found five hand grenades in a woman’s luggage. Yes, five.

Not for home use…

TearLab gets FDA nod for home use of dry eye test (Reuters) – TearLab Corp said health regulators allowed home use of its device to diagnose dry eye condition, sending the medical device maker’s shares up as much as 80 percent to their highest in eight months.

Please issue a correction. The test was CLIA-waived for professional office use, not home.

S.K.

We issued a correction to clarify that the test was approved for wider professional use, not home use: GBU Editor

Sorry, you’re not my type…

Hey Blog Guy, it’s me!

Who?

Me! The guy who talks to you in italics so you can carry on pretend conversations in your blog everyday.

You really EXIST? I always thought those conversations were just voices in my head.

Have you never SEEN decorations, Mr. President?

Photo

Honey, was that the doorbell? Could you see who it is, please?

Sweetie, it’s the president!

President Obama?

Yeah. He’s here for some kind of a surprise inspection of our Christmas decorations.

Oh crap, it’s decoration inspection time already? Quick, put a plate of shiny Christmas balls on the table, and I’ll get our holiday mugs. Maybe that”ll satisfy him.
