- Sarah Palin has somehow gotten another book deal, this time pandering to the tiny amount of people who do not understand that one of America’s founding principles is freedom of religion. A Happy Holiday IS A Merry Christmas, which is out this November, will be a defense of “our faith” and rant about the “politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas.” Is she still a thing?

A day late, we know, but it’s still time to get Murray this holiday season, with a special Christmas greeting straight from Bill Murray to you! Murray is starring in the new film “Hyde Park On Hudson,” as Franklin D. Roosevelt, so of course he did the most presidential thing ever and posed for a greeting postcard in nothing but a handkerchief. God, I love this man.
When several packages containing Christmas presents went missing from the doorsteps of a subdivision in Clermont, Florida, some of the residents decided to do something about it. Two neighbors conspired with a hidden camera and some decoy boxes and caught the culprit on camera — an 8-year-old girl. But before you feel sorry for her, you should know that she first denied stealing, then admitted that she’d done it on a dare. I might have been on her team if she was deprived of Christmas presents and that caused her to steal out of desperation, not that it’s the right thing to do. But a dare? She deserves a lump of coal from Santa this year. [UPI]
The irony about people who cope with depression is that some of us are actually quite happy people.

But I’m not someone whose blue-colored glasses see everyone screwed up and the world a terrible place.
That is, until the holidays come around. Keep reading »
How many ways is the “12 Memes of Christmas” better than the original carol? Well, for one, the original “12 Days of Christmas” doesn’t include a major cameo from Grumpy Cat. And it certainly doesn’t feature the “Ermagerd Girl,” who’s pretty obsessed with her “Gersebermp Berks.” There’s also no photobombing stingray, Nyan cat or shamed dogs. Then again, the original doesn’t involve Rickrolling, which could be a good thing. [Mashable]

Every other week I rattle on and on about ways to incorporate healthy choices into your lifestyle. Whether it’s tips for staying motivated, reasons you should avoid alcohol, or how to recover from a weekend warrior session, I try to keep you on track to reaching your fitness goals.
But let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t want to think about being healthy. You just want to INDULGE and with the holidays upon us, we are surrounded by temptation. Naturally there are tons of articles floating around about how make healthy choices even when you’re bombarded by office holiday parties and family get togethers. Well, in true Lazy Girl fashion, I say: screw it. Don’t worry about your diet this month. Sometimes you need to embrace your inner fat kid and give ‘em some cake.
