i was almost late for work because my dreams told me to turn my alarm clocks off

well, it wasn't quite like that - i apologized for the noise and offered to make it stop. that was that. the mind does funny things sometimes and i awoke with ten minutes to shower, dress, do hair, brush teeth, grab food and out the door - i did it in twelve, but only because i am now addicted to water - great large bottles of the stuff...

holidays are funny things, my christmas is stretching out and soon it will be my turn to play santa claus, dress up in a red suit and don't forget the beard - well, metaphorically speaking, anyways.

christmas started early for me with the trip to texas that i still must detail parts to you (like the amusing, if over-priced "uncommon objects boutique" or the instructions for a ritual i found on the ground at a gas station: "after the ceremony is over, return your hood and return to your pew").

it continued over the actual holiday (so the main reason i have been lax on the fish is that i have been playing Prince of Persia 3 - yes, i know, i have no life. but can you blame me? it's so damn cool!!!) and it's not over yet.

my family was unable to come to get together this december, as far flung as we seem to be, so it was decided that we would celebrate christmas at the end of January in LA. LA! ah, nothing quite like after-christmas sales and opening presents on the beach.

so since the pressure for pre-christmas family shopping fell away, the actual holiday snuck up on me and i realized that my friend here and there and all over the place will mostly be getting New Year's Gifts instead - something small and fun to start 2006 in a direction that i can only hope as up.

but that's ok, because it's not about christmas - it's about those little things that meant someone thought about you in this hectic time of year, when the most we want to do is curl up with a hot, spicy rum and cider and watch the fire flit and play in the fireplace. so no matter what the present nor when i give it, every one has a small bit of me in it - even this.

so, MERRY WHATEVERYOUWANTTOCELEBRATE! (or for short: HAPPY HOLIDAYS!)

love, mysfit
