I hope that all of you are having a wonderful day so far, whether it is Christmas Eve or just another day for you. I myself am looking forward to the holiday. For one thing I am only going to be working two days for the remainder of 2010, barring a last minute, emergency, can’t wait until New Years project coming down the line at EMH. My grandmother has come down from Washington State. My Warriors are playing in the Hawaii Bowl tonight and we shall be watching the game on my parents’ home theatre. As you can probably tell by now I am struggling to find something to write about and am just rambling on in an attempt to overcome writer’s block.
In general, I love Christmas always have. It has been a time to get together with family Yes there are also the gifts but I have always had a hard time with the question “what do you want for Christmas” cause really, I have I had a hard time with thinking about what I want. The religious side of the holiday I have always been mixed about. While I was baptized a Catholic, the only time that I ever regularly went to Mass was ironically enough, while I was going to school at Creighton University. Yes, that is right; I was more religious in college than I am now. I know I have it backwards. Furthermore, I have come to terms with all of the commercialism surrounding the holiday. To the point where I believe that all the people that get all worked up about are in the “We’re Not Happy Unless We’re Mad” party.
All in all, I am looking forward to having sometime to spend with family watching TV and eating. I know this is not the usual geopolitical furor that this blog usually produces but like I said I have writers block and have been too busy working to pay attention to things. But never the less some of my readers shall get upset if I go more than week without posting something. So here is a post. Think if it as my gift this year.
Happy Unspecified Winter Holiday.
O what the hell, screw political correctness, Merry Christmas.
