The Holidays. Kicking My Arse in the Free Time

Lack of posting due to whatever excuse I feel like using. And for now that would be the holidays. Which aren't officially over until after New Years.

Being one of the last hires this year, I am doomed to work every stinking working minute that isn't an official day off. This makes me sad. It's not like I didn't know that was going to happen, but sad nonetheless.

There is one thing that was pure unexpected joy for me this season though. It is Gay themed Christmas Cards. I've never gotten any before, and now that I have, I adore them. The jokes, the puns, the picture fun with once never dared make fun of subject matter. Pure glee in an envelope.

I got one the same day I got a card with some heavy Catholic content. I giggled as I put the two cards in the same bag facing each other for the ride home. When I got home there was no holy war, there was no name calling and nobody burst into flames.

It's too bad that people in general can't be more like their holiday cards. There's a spot for your message that people can take or leave, you wish everyone well and you don't mind when a different belief shows up for the ride home.

OK, see, that's why I complain when you're not around. When you're not making me laugh my eyeballs out you're making me tear up (with tears like) with some beautiful sappy sentiment. :-)
Happy New Year to you and Mr. Zoom!

Gay Christmas cards? Intriguing. I didn't get any of those, but I did get a few that made me smile.

I didn't send any out this year. It wasn't that I was truly too busy, but I just decided to call people on the phone and talk with them instead. :)

It's too bad you had to work over the holidays--my job doesn't have many benefits but we do get a week off at Christmas. It's unpaid, but I like it anyway.
