Written 26 December, 2007
Today it was back to work after a four-day Christmas holiday. I am soooo not in the spirit.
The spirit of work.
But one must earn a living, and so I arose today at the crack of noon (my workday commencesat 11:30 am; I deliberately overslept) and prepared to do battle in the world of commerce.
Nah. I’m just waxing poetic. I don’t have truck with the world of commerce at all, at least not in the real world, unless I’m buying groceries or blank CDs. I work as a behavior specialist at an agency that works with adults with developmental disabilities. So I prepared to do battle in the world of service provision.
It will be a short week, though, and then there’s another holiday.
I don’t know who decided to put Christmas so close to New Year, but thank you! Thank you for that! And it was clever to make Christmas close to Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving close to Halloween and New Year close to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Soooo much better than the holiday wasteland of summer, with nothing whatsoever to relieve us between Independence Day and Labor Day.
I know a lot of you won’t make much sense of these US-specific holidays, but most of you will celebrate a major holiday around Christmas time and everyone celebrates the new year, so I can only assume you’re as happy as I am to have these holidays dropped upon you in close proximity. Besides, a lot of you get a long holiday between Christmas and New Year (you lucky bastards!), and are probably laughing YAO at us holiday-poor Americans who get only two days for Christmas and one for the new year.
Hehe. I love to be ridiculous in this blog.
So anyway, I’m just happy for the holidays and thankful for all my first and second lives have brought me. I know most of you feel the same.
And in just five more days we can get drunk on our ass and ring in the new year.
Except for those who don’t drink. We’ll just mimic being drunk on our ass as we ring in the new year.
Happy holidays, folks!
