A Christmas Post

Just wanted to pop onto the blogamathing and wish any and everybody reading a Very Merry Christmas. I hope it's restful, refreshing and everything you need and wish it to be.

Me? I managed a nice nine hours of sleep last night, waking somewhere around 8:15 or so this morning, startled at first that I'd overslept. There's not much in this world like realizing that not only do you not have to go to work, but it's also Christmas. Even at 32, I feel like that, and I hope I never lose that.

Still, the working life in retail being what it is over the Christmas holiday, it left me needing to sit down and finish the wrapping & bagging of the stuff I'd gotten for the folks, sister and brother-in-law. Another holiday viewing of Christmas Vacation later, and I made the lunch-time journey over to the folks' house.

The sister & brother-in-law made the journey up toward Riceville shortly thereafter, after spending Christmas morning with the brother-in-law's family. There are kids on that side of the family, and thus Santa makes a visit that way.

As an aside, I don't think Santa visits my house. Unless it's during the year to steal my beer and make a mess of my laundry situation. If Santa's anything like me, it's nice to know that he builds up a year's worth of jollies by messing with people over the course of the year.

Next year will be interesting for them...my sister and brother-in-law I mean. They've got a bundle of joy on the way. This time next year, my Christmas post will contain what will be one of what will be many references to my being an Uncle Tom.

We exchanged gifts. Got myself a new pair of tennis shoes, which is nice, considering I was a couple weeks away from having to staple rubber bands onto copies of the Guinness Book of World Records. McGyver, I ain't.

I'm sure McGyver would have better luck with the remote control helicopter I got for Christmas, too. Apparently, Air Wolf, I ain't, either.

Anyway. Just wanted to take a minute to say howdy, and tell you fine folks Merry Christmas. Take it easy, and we'll see you on the flip side...

Merry Christmas to you, Tommy! Sorry it's a bit late, but when you live in the future, it's hard to get these things right.
