Default Merry Christmas To All!


...and to all a good night, yadda yadda yadda.

Well, Christmas has hit the U.S of A. I have received word from reliable sources that other parts of the world have already celebrated. To them, I give Christmas wishes that will go back in time and make everything all right. To everyone else... have a great Yuletide! Get some roaring fires going, burn some pine needles, tear open some wrapping paper, play with your new toys, pray for snow, give your extended family big hugs, eat a massive spread of festive fare, and sink into a state of Christmas bliss! And while you're at it, get some writing done

I think I will get some writing done - my brother was supposed to come over today, but because of the weather he can't >_< so I'll have to occupy myself. *sigh*

Joyeux NoŽl tout le monde!

Yeah . . . I'm stuck at home today, too, because of the weather. The hubby is giving me a headache by trying to pound the ice off of our roof, the little one is whining and going nuts over not becoming an instant master at his new video games, and I am getting ready to go cook a glorious Christmas brunch.

Can't I go back to sleep??????

*Kidding*

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas is over for us.

I have to say, it's hard to appreciate it with a huge headache - from what, I won't say.

Spent my Christmas with the usual crowd. Me, myself, and Mr. Chronic.
Despite being ostracized from my family, I still managed to survive the holiday season with empty pockets and relatively happy.

May your Christmas wishes be granted and all worries be abolished from your minds... if only for one night.
Merry Christmas to all.

Christmas can be all year round if you want it to be. Except for presents; that could be expensive. And people tend to look at you funny when you wish them a merry Christmas in July. When they drag you off to an asylum, stay strong! Sing carols at the top of your lungs and show peace on earth and goodwill to the people in little white coats.

Haven't you heard of Christmas in July?! I think that's when the stores have a bunch of sales. I think. I'm not really sure.

But presents everyday? Oh, yeah. That would get super expensive. Well . . . you'd have to do that if we celebrated everyone's un-birthday.

Christmas in July - more common here, because we have Winter in July.

Good point. Devon could just claim she's from Australia.

Despite our summer days here in Melbourne being about 38~ degrees Celcius, Christmas Day somehow is nearly always overcast and somewhat cold (moderate temperature, at least... like 20~ degrees).

Isn't an unbirthday when you give presents on your birthday to everyone else instead of the other way round?

I'll have to try and find my A.A. Milne books now...

or the internet! duh, it "knows" everything.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unbirthday
well that threw me for six... I thought it was awhinnie the pooh idea... c'mon google, tell me it is so I'm just wrong and not demented..

no can't find it. Damn my mother lied to me...


Merry Christmas everyone...

Kal and Devon need a long rest. Saw people in Walmart yesterday buying Christmas wrap. I guess saving a dime makes up for storing the rolls for a year. They didn't look like the type that gives presents to anyone. They likely thought it was wallpaper.
