Happy Holidays!

So, the world didn’t end. Darn it. I was hoping to call dibs on my neighbor’s 1967 Mustang when all the True Believers ™ were swept up in the Rapture, or whatever was supposed to happen. Oh well.

In the meantime since we all have to continue to muddle along, I thought I’d say thanks to everyone for reading my little blog and take this opportunity to wish you all Happy Holidays, and safe travels, and send you my wishes for a New Year that makes all your dreams come true. 2013. Good number. Ha! Please click on the picture for an ecard from me, to you.

2012 Blog Xmas card

Also, for those who are interested, a reminder that my local classical music station, KQAC,  is playing their annual Festival of Carols now through Christmas Day. It’s a great selection of familiar and obscure Christmas music, and I guarantee no “Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer,” or “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Both of which make me want to throw things. Check them out here and click on “Listen Live” at the top of the page. I may be a  black-hearted pagan, but I still love good music.

Now, can anybody tell me where there’s a village like the one in the card so I can move there?

  1. I gotta say, I love “Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer”! 😉

    Happy Holidays to you, too and wishing you success in the new year. Thanks for the card. 🙂


    1. Hahaha 😉 Yeah, but how many times can you listen to it?? Most stations play the same handful of songs over and over and over… At my last company there was a woman who sat across the aisle from me in our little cube farm, and had an electronic dancing Xmas tree ornament that went off every time someone moved and played “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” The whole song. After the 12th rendition in a single day I was ready to set fire to that thing…


      1. My mom has the exact same evil critter. She loves it. I think…I think I may be turning into her!

        I’ll check out the link you provided, maybe it will save me.

        By the way, wonderful card. Thanks again.


  2. I love reading your blog…it was y very first. I had no idea the world was supposed to end. If I had I would never have Swiffed, a necessary act I loathe. You’re such a wonderful writer that I look forward to all you pen in the new year.


    1. Thank you for such kind words, Susannah! Yes, far too many silly people turned the Mayan ‘Long Count’ calendar into a doomsday prophecy. Not at all how the Maya themselves viewed it, it was simply the end of one cycle, the beginning of a new one. So I guess we’re all bright and shiny and new now. Here’s to a great writing year for both of us! :::clinks glasses:::
