Happy xmas and all that shizz
i'm no delusionoid, but i do like the idea of having a specific time set aside exclusively for being with family and friends, giving each other gifts, reminding people that they matter and looking at cool lights while trudging through a foot of snow.
i ain't no bah-humbug, but for me -- and most of the learned folks of this earth -- i'd say that's a reasonable stab at what xmas really is anymore. well, that and the idea that it's a great way to sell shit that people don't need.
anyway, i'm gonna be with family this year. hopefully you're with people you like too.
also, i find beagles in santa hats to be quite irresistible.
