Christmas Reflections

Things I discovered today: I could eat an entire thing of Cool Mint Oreos in one sitting if I wanted to. It’s not even a question of if, even though I haven’t actually done it, but a matter of: “When will I let it get to that point?”.

During the Christmas season, I usually like to reflect on the things that I’m most thankful for. Of course, there’s the yearly staples like a great family & wonderful friends, but I’ve realized there’s some small things in my life that brighten my day whenever they happen, and it’s when you don’t have them that you most appreciate them.

Steve The Cat usually greets me at my car when I pull up to my house. Last night was different. He was far more engrossed in the mouse he caught and was beginning to eat. I heard the mouse bones crunching in his jaws as he gnawed on recently-warm flesh, but not before he growled at me for daring to approach him while he was feasting on the spoils of his kill.

It was then that I was truly thankful for the love he shows me when he’s not violently hell-bent on satisfying the carnal urges to kill that pervade his feline instincts. As an ailurophile, it really put me in the Christmas spirit.

 

You know what else puts me in the Christmas spirit? Hilary Duff.

 

So what do you guys want for Christmas? I’m talking simple, down to the core materialism here, people. A new Xbox? YESSSSSS! A big screen TV? SCOOOORE! A full set of Beanie Babies in mint condition? HUZZAH! HUBBA HUBBA HULLABALOO!

It’s the unbridled passion for getting as much stuff as you can that makes me love this time of year. The only thing that can bring me down is when people give me gifts I hate, or when they’re really slow and in front of me in the store aisle. I mean WTF?!

Obviously, I’m just kidding. In all seriousness, I couldn’t tell you what I wanted for Christmas. I now know what my dad meant when he used to say all he wanted for Christmas was peace & harmony in his home. I think that’s all I want. I want peace & harmony among everyone I know for Christmas. The problem is, that’s probably too expensive in terms of sacrifice, so I’ll probably end up with a box of chocolates or 7, or some other presents bought from Walgreens the same day it’s given to me. Tis the season!
