I hope all my fans, trolls and haters are enjoying the holidays! Here’s a wonderful song to get you in the Christmas spirit:
This song is especially meaningful to me because I really do live on a river I can skate away on. Well technically it’s a canal. It’s literally the World’s longest skating rink and I get to live on it.
Do I deserve to live here among the well-heeled and white bred; those who listen to Mozart and sip the finest Cabernet?
To quote the late great Daniel Seligman:
The connection between IQ and achievement has one positive implication. People who are at the top in [North American] life, are probably there because they’re more intelligent than the rest of us, which is doubtless the way most of us think it should be.
I love skating as fast as I can under the full moon of a cold January night..
then getting a nice warm beaver tail, to give me just enough energy to skate home.
And then sticking in a nice atmospheric horror film as I sip my well-earned signature homemade hot chocolate.
I think I’m going to make some of that right now.
Merry Christmas Pumpkin Person

Pumpkin, why are you so bored?
I’d be bored if I were Canadian, too.

That looks very good PP. Hope you can buy one flat like that which is pretty cool :
Happy Christmas to all !
PS : I couldn’t live there, nor in Sweden, not because of the cold, but because of the mosquitoes. They love me. I can’t be next to any swampy area. Weirdly, I have no problems in the mediterranean except when it’s swampy (like south east of France Montpellier coast or certain areas of south west of spain like Huelva coast).
PP, do you have a boyfriend?
why would a straight man have a boyfriend?
C’mon PP I know you are a woman. The way you write stuff, and your intense interest in oprah, and talking about hot chocolate of which you even shared a recipe if I remember correctly, posting song videos of female singers etc all of these indicate you may be a woman.
I also talk about statistics, evolution, IQ, hbd, slasher films. Not a lot of women obsess about those topics
There are more women who are interested in stuff you mentioned than men who are interested in stuff i mentioned.
Have a Happy Christmas season Pumpkin!!!!! (“Christmas season” versus Happy Holidays because we are a Christian nation. Although now we’re coming to the end of the season).
Try some Kahlua in the Hot Chocolate.
I agree. I make it a point to say “Merry Christmas” when people say “Happy Holidays” to me. I start growing my winter coat (beard) in June every year and I’ve gotten some “Happy Hannukah” (sp?) comments. I look at them and say “Merry Christmas.”
I understand that it’s tough—if not impossible—for many “men” to grow beards. But a man with a full thick beard isn’t always Jewish.
Pumpkin, on the Des Moines morning of the Ravens matrices, there’s a huge difference between the 16 year olds and the 15 year olds, but on the Fort Bend norms, the difference isn’t that large. What explains this? Are the Des Moines norms the correct norms or are they inflated?
