So there I was nestled all snug in my bed bright and early Christmas morn, with not a creature stirring all through the house. Visions of potential posts danced in my head instead of the de rigeur sugarplums and such. Suddenly, it hit me like a flash: why not take a couple of days off from the innarnuts entirely? What better day than Christmas for a recharging of the ol’ batteries via a little vacation from all that wearisome, neverending political struggle and strife?
So that’s just what I did. Which doesn’t mean I don’t sincerely hope all you fine folks had yourselves a most joyful Christmas, filled with all the good things that go along with what truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
There’s still a lot of Christmas left as far as I’m concerned, whatever the Grinch of a calendar may aver. Ever since I’ve been out on my own, I’ve always strictly observed the Elvis Presley rule about the tree and decorations: they stay up till January 8th (E’s birthday), and even then are taken down with not a little reluctance and sadness. So anyways, yeah, got a few good Christmas topics to cover yet here, and I’m a-gonna cover ’em. So ho ho ho, away we go!
