Behind the Green Card

Fine, you have to love politicians, not. No, before anyone gets excited, this isnt about UK politics, my job is too good for that. On the other hand, the chaos ensuing in the US, where the bewigged, orange idiot is in charge…?

I wish I could convince myself that American government grinding to a halt doesnt suit his plans, but I’m failing badly. Anyway, thanks to some of his crazier ideas, let alone the racist ones, the budget agreement in US has ground to a complete, and utter halt. I’m not saying the Democrats are perfect (they probably arent), but compared to the craziness of the Republicans, yes, its not hard to work out which party I feel sorry for.

No, its not either of them, its the poor workers who have no idea what is going on, when they’re going to get paid, or anything! Thankfully, despite everything, the main issues are protected, which doesnt help with the amusing jibe in my blog tonight, but I can bring it up, anyway.

Yes, probably wisely, Immigration issues are one of those protected areas, where life goes on. Well, until they get sick of not being paid, or 3 groups of people finally see the light, and get things sorted, but dont hold your breath on that!

But fine, if anyone in that department, while they’re not being watched so closely fancies sending me a working visa, or a green card…? 😉 Would make a lovely 60th birthday gift, lol! No, I know, not going to happen, but I can hope! Then I’d just need a role, and…? 😉

Please, America, lets get something sorted out soon. But whether Trump, and his cronies will let sense happen, not holding my breath!

OK, video time. Well its got 3 of the 4 words in the blog title in it!

Merry Christmas Everyone

Yes, thats a major clue to the video, though as I’m not sure this song ever crossed the Atlantic, my North American readers may not know it without looking at the video. Might be better if they dont, but anyway…

To all my readers here, and there seem to be a few, can I wish you all a Merry Christmas, from both me, and my alter ego, Merry Brooks.

Whats that, you thought my name really was Merry Brooks? Ah well, next you’ll be telling me you believe in Santa Claus? What? Aah…lets leave it there, shall we, lol?

Lets face it, at my age, I’m long past the point of getting over excited about Christmas, and with no family to share it with, it will just be the four of us here having a lovely day together. Then, for me at least, back to work on Boxing Day. Thankfully today was one of my days off for the week, so I have got a break of sorts.

If people are good (and I will get Santa to confirm), I might wear the dress I wore to the dinner tomorrow, and get one of Dave, or Nicole to take a picture, so you can finally see what it looked like. Whether I inflict my bare knees on you, you’ll have to wait and see! If you’re lucky, I’ll wear the leggings too!

Oh, and for those of you lacking a present for Christmas, there is always

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_athr_dp_sr_1?_encoding=UTF8&field-author=Merry+Brooks&search-alias=digital-text&sort=relevancerank

for a Kindle treat. I know, I know, naughty, but the extra pennies would be nice, and the sales might boost the ego too. There are other options, like Smashwords, Kobo etc, for those of you without a Kindle too. Or as I have myself, you can download Kindle books to your computer anyway.

But anyway, advertising over now, honest it is.

Presents will be a few, one I know is the Louise Brooks biography by Barry Paris, a treat I’m looking forward to, I must say. I know that, because someone asked what I wanted, and this appealed, funnily enough. Beyond that, and the bottle of wine from work, not a clue!

So as I say, enjoy your day tomorrow, religious or otherwise, with a family or not, just have a lovely day.

Oh, and if you really want to think that I’m really a stunning young woman, named Meredith (Merry) Brooks, feel free to do so. Oh, and Santa, if you want me to look like my avatar pic that Merry uses as a Christmas present, please do!

The video, an oldie, but they are the best, so they say
