Merry Christmas

It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” again, and wow. I’m just not there. I did hear Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas in Hollis” on the radio the other day, and that put a smile on my face. And Eric Cartman singing “Swiss Colony Beef Log” still cracks me up to no end.

On the subject of music, there’s a Counting Crows lyric that I think does a spectacular job of describing the last month:

“It’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last.”

It has been a pretty rough month — the loss of the job was poorly timed, and things haven’t been going as well as they should. The computer died and had to be replaced (Macs aren’t cheap to service). But there’s a potential job lined up, the writing has some velocity, there’s an awesome font underway, I’ve started training for the upcoming cycling season, and I’m in a generally optimistic state of mind.

So yeah. Not much else going on. I do the Twitter thing, and have a bunch of little updates via that.
