Putting the X in Xmas

December 25, 2004

Ah Christmas! It's that time of the year when one gets to travel to one's original place of childhood in order to reopen old wounds and eat free food... oh wait.

What I meant was: Ah Christmas! That cheery time of the year where the snow is blank page white laying on the fields of dead weeds and the ice beneath the snow presents an occupational hazard...

Okay. This time for real: Ah Christmas! That time of the year where everyone pretends like they care about the birth of some kid thousands of years ago while they are secretly just eyeing up all the packages wondering about their take-home bounty.

Actually, I'm just playin'.

While I don't morally agree with most of the Christmas activities this time of the year (excessive materialism, outdated religious beliefs, fruitcake eating, etc.), I have found myself sweep up in the supposed-Christmas-spirit this year.

3 examples:

1) I bought superfly presents for all of my loved ones.

2) I made a concentrated effort to get out of bed before noon, even though I was up "getting the holiday spirit" until four a.m.

3) I am ignoring the fact that I am kind of sick. I have been fighting the illness for the past few days, despite the fact that both my mom and best friend have been ill and that I'm basically doomed to catch it. I think that if I ignore the spinny head feeling and don't move, I'll be cool.

It's cool though. I'm heading over to the family pad with my DVD of The Family Guy and a tupperware container of cranberry sauce. Sweet!

Merry holidaze, yo!

I hope you had a fabulous Christmas. And about being sick--if you're mentally against it, that's half the battle, really. (Consider people that are hypochondriacs and always think they have the newest illness/cold/disease, and end up really making themselves sick!)

Get ready for 05 :) W00t!

Hope everyone had a nice Xmas. That's right, Moira: put the X back in Xmas!

Karissa - I am mentally against being sick like you wouldn't believe. I am trying to psyche myself out of having the flu. And I think it's working! My grandfather's remedy of two aspirin washed down with a mug of HOT 7-up helps too. yay!

Evan - I'm glad someone appreciated the Xmas comment ;c)
