Yeah, it is Christmas time again.
I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday, are enjoying yourself, and Santa was good to you this year. Hopefully you did not receive any coal or any underwear, as my friend’s son explained to her that Santa brings underwear to those that are bad. Well, we have to get underwear from somewhere right? Oh, and terrible sweaters.
Ye Gods, is this even a sweater?
As for me, my day has been very quiet which I have enjoyed. We had a half a day at work on Christmas Eve. With so few people there, I was able to accomplish a lot and have a great day in the gym before heading home for a run later in the day. If only every day could be like that! I’d just hate to make half the salary!
The weather here has been unseasonably warm as one can wear shorts. It has made my run yesterday, and today, by the river very relaxing. A few very hard days in the gym left me very sore and it was nice to sleep in today. Today, I have mainly laid around and caught up on the X-Files series. I watched the X-Files movie last night so I could get back on track in the series.
Besides my run and watching X-Files, I have done a lot of relaxing. It is surely nice to have some downtime. I also got some Chinese food for dinner. When I was married, my ex-wife and I started a tradition where we could go out for Chinese food either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. This was born out of us being married on December 29th, and with all that was happening to prepare for the wedding, we didn’t travel or cook and thus this tradition was started. Though divorced, I usually get take-out, not really to honor the tradition, but to avoid cooking. But, I ate too much and the song “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd is on my mind, though it is more-so like “Uncomfortably Numb.”
They hadn’t even started the eggnog shots yet…
Hope your day was filled with joy, family, friends, happiness, and love and in the immortal words of one Clark W. Griswold, hopefully you had “the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. ”
Best wishes and Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Festivus for the rest of us!
We will now begin the airing of the grievances!
