hi.  merry christmas.  happy holidays.  i send all of the traditional seasonal wishes to you with respect to your belief system.  if you believe in nothing, i hope you are happy in your nihilism.
you should look at this - http://jtfanclub.com/holiday

unfortunately, i did not take the picture on that page.  i found it on the internet, and used it without permission.
please do not sue me.
i wish i did take it.  it is awesome regardless of whether you prefer santa claus, sinterklaas, saint nick, father christmas or hanukkah harry.
so yeah, have a lovely day.
i'll try to post more, but i've been rather busy for an almost unemployed guy lately.  shit is crazy.  maybe i'll tell you about it later.

warmly (i recently received a holiday greeting that was signed "warmly."  i don't know why, but it creeps me out a bit.),

p.s.  i will be older tomorrow.  wish me luck.  


Check out this video. This is how I spent my day last friday (not this past friday, but the friday before that.). You can see me a few times if you're really looking. I'm on the bottom right between the hours of 10:30 and 17:00. I'm the tall one with beard.  We had to manually change the time on this clock every minute for an entire day, officially making it the least efficient timepiece in the world. It was very fun. If someone asks you to do this, you should say yes.

What else has been going on?  I don't know.  It's all just regular kind of stuff.  Time is passing quite rapidly, and I'm finding it difficult to savor moments.  This time of year is supposed to be "special," but it does not feel special.  It feels regular.  When I think about the upcoming holidays I do not get excited.  They are just regular days.  Maybe I should be visited by a series of spirits who can teach me how to better appreciate the month of December, or perhaps I should try harder.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling Scroogey or Grinchy.  I'm just feeling normal.  Un-festive, if you will.  I'm not trying to convince anyone that they should feel normal.  I am merely reporting on my state of mind.  If you have any suggestions for me to make the season brighter, I will gladly accept them.

Peace out,
