So, how’ve you been? I’d know if I’d read any of you since Monday, but I have not. I’d apologize, cept, I long ago figured out there’s not enough time to enjoy all the good stuff of life causa all the ‘Must’ and ‘Sposta’ crap that gets in the way. This is why it’s so important to live where you belong, with the right person, and to pursue work you enjoy.

Gosh, you know, I could be livin in some hot, barren landscape with some stupid, wretched man — my only escape a job where I wear a suit and talk about sport statistics…

Make good choices, Kids.

So it’s that time of year. Time to eat barbecue pork on challah while sitting next to my Buddhas under my hamsa while O Holy Night plays… or this one, this one’s good:

I erected my Yule tree like a proper pagan. Mine is decked out in silver and gold, but it’s not cut from the forest — it’s prolly not even BPA-free.

In a stunning act of self-service, I went to the post office for myself, where I bought stamps for myself. Winter berries. Quite pretty. For holiday cards, you know. Cards pushing my radical liberal agenda — Joy. And Snow.

I get FIVE days off this Christmas. Today I bought ten pounds of flour and four pounds of butter, and most importantly, a metric fuckton of rum. I’ll show you merry and bright, lemme tell ya. Runnin a lil preview tonight; got my nog, got my dog, got my blog. It’s pretty lit.

  4. Youโ€™re living the good life, no doubt. Iโ€™m just having a beer and about to update my own site. Iโ€™ve been known to BWI and sometimes it helps.

    Thatโ€™s the important thing. Take care of Joey and all thatโ€™s close to Joey. Santa will take care of everyone else. Thatโ€™s his job, and I hear he likes it very much. Just make sure to leave a rum cookie under the tree.

    Iโ€™m having a rough week. Itโ€™s nice to read about joy, if not snow. (To the dude blowing snow at 6:00 am on a Sunday, only a few inches had fallen. You couldโ€™ve waited.)

    Sorry, Iโ€™m a bit cranky. But Iโ€™ll try to get my tinsel on!

      You’d look spectacular in tinsel. Also, it’s rather hard to be cranky whilst wearing tinsel. I sure hope this week is better for you โค

        It’s been easier for this week. I’m hoping that whatever it was was a passing fancy. Or that taking him off all the antacid products did help. Fingers crossed, but always prepared. (I like to appropriate and mix my mottos. I’m not sure if that’s half-Boy Scout motto and half Lucky Charms aphorism, but it’s what I’ve got right now.)

    LOL, you are a funny bunny and a well lit one at that. You can keep the flour and butter, but I’d take the barbecue and rum any day. I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and nevermind if you don’t get around to reading anyone else’s blog. It’s your time to be with family, bake, do a little work, take some time off and get lit once again…just like Rudolph’s nose.

    I’m glad you are getting some time off for Christmas. I know you’ll enjoy those 5 days! I haven’t rounded up my flour and butter quite yet. School gets out this coming Friday and we will commence our cookie baking (and eating) then. I haven’t had any egg nog this season yet, nor have I bought one present. All shall be remedied soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ll be baking when you’re baking, but I can start without shopping, and that thrills me. I bought my first gifts last night. I think I’m doing a GREAT job ๐Ÿ˜€ lol
