Merry Christmas 'n stuff

Well I finally got off my lazy ass and decided to post something. The main thing that I wanna say is (of course) Merry Christmas! (Sure I'm an athiest, but that doesn't mean that I can't use the ages-old expression of well wishes during the Holiday Season. Get off my back already!) Ahem.

So, I've been running around over the last couple of day's doing the whole Christmas "thing". I never got around to picking up those gift certificates that I was talking about, so I just did the next best thing: I bought a box of Cards, and put some cash in each one of them. This was only for the immediate family members, (except for Mom and Dad, they've already got enough cash, and time spent with them seems to count for more than a few bucks. Maybe the next time I'm in town, I'll actually feel up to spending more time with them. Damn I hope so, I miss my parents.) and the people that I share a house with. I really hate the fact that I didn't have time to do any personal shopping for all these people in my life. Most times a nice little trinket that goes along with someone's interest's is more appreciated than something as impersonal as cash, but I had to do something. I hope they take the meaning behind it, and buy something that they want, and will have fun with.

As for all of the good people out there in the blogosphere, all I can say is: thanks for what you do. All your posts are like little gifts to me, that I receive each day (that I can get to a PC that's online). My blog "Family" is very special, and the rest of the folks on my blogroll all actually mean a little something to me. It's still a little strange to me that I can find such a connection with people whom I've never met, and only read their thoughts on their 'blogs, and that they've become so much a part of my life. Since I've been disconnected from the internet, It's become very obvious to me that I really miss it, and am worse off for the lack of it. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back home a lot more in this new year, and be able to spend more time with everyone. Friends, Family, Blog and otherwise.

Here's looking to the New Year.

Merry Christmas, Johnny-Oh! I always love reading about how much you love your folks. I feel the same way about mine and it just warms my heart.

Yeah D. They are my "rocks". Something that I do a lot is shelter them from whatever may be troubling me. I try not to bring up the specifics, but they always know that something's up, and are ready to lend a hand at a moments notice. I seldom let them do so, as I don't want to be a trouble to them anymore. They had to put up with my teen years, and that's more than I'd wish on anyone. I know that I can never repay the kindness and love that they've given me, but the least I can do is act like a "man" and not visit any more trouble on them on my behalf. They deserve so much more, and I'll give what I can. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Happy Boxing Day! (Do you call it that across the pond?)

Glad you're back :-)

You know, I had completely forgotten about the "boxing day" tradition. We don't really call it that around here, but I think we should. It's a fine tradition. Thanks for reminding me. Now I've got a better excuse than "It's Sunday" to have a beer or three. :^)

When you've been away for a while (yeah a week is a while) it's hard to know where to start with a post. This is an excellent one *grin*. I'm a little late jumping in - but I hope you have an excellent New Year and have lots more time to post (only because you're working close to home NOT because you lost your job!!!)

[leaves a 6-pack to let Johnny-Oh know that he hasn't been forgotten]
