You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch...

I hate Christmas. Thank god it's almost over.

From the constant Christmas-themed craptastic marathons to the crazy busy stores to the unnecessarily cheery people... I just can't stand it. I wish everyone would treat it like it was any other day and not make a big deal about it.

Not to mention that it totally fucks with my birthday (the 29th). NO ONE is ever around to come celebrate with me. Thanks mom, thanks dad. I hope that tax break was worth the pain and suffering you've caused me for the past 27 years, and the next 50 as well.

That being said, there are a few things I DO like about Christmas.

1. Carol of the Bells - What other Christmas carol could be described as intense? Those Eastern Europeans sure do know how to write a catchy little ditty.
2. Santa hats - Almost all hats are cool. Unless they have a white "NY" logo on them. If only Target would have had them in stock.
3. Time off from work. I get two days for Christmas. Unfortunately, almost all other John Deere factories and offices are closed for the entire week.
4. Bonus money. Got $2400 this year. Then Uncle Sam decided that I needed to get him a birthday present. Spend it wisely... oh wait, I forgot, the Democrats are in Congress. That ain't gonna happen.

Even in this joyous season, I can find plenty to complain about. Maybe I should start celebrating Festivus instead. I already got the Airing of Grievances down. Just have to pin Frank for the Feats of Strength...

Somewhere I Belong

You know, it's weird. I've been playing World of Warcraft off and on for the past two years now, and it seems like Azeroth is the only place where I've felt like I truly belonged.

My buddies Vern and Jared had talked me into joining them in Azeroth, and as soon as I had started, I was invited to The Wolves of Azeroth. No questions asked. Ard and Cith were glad to have me as a member. And as the months progressed, everyone in The Wolves were more than willing to help me out with anything and everything (except, of course, RUNNING the guild, but that's another story...).

It's still a little weird to be back with none of them around. But I found some people to latch onto and suck the life out of... I mean, um, hang out with... Lan and Sina are doing their darnest to twink me out so I can play with them on a daily basis. And it's always a ball to talk with them on Vent and listen to them bitch and moan and talk shit to each other. Most fun I've had in ages.

Dynasty will never be like The Wolves. But I think I'm finally somewhere I belong, once again...

I usually don't blog from work, but three thoughts crossed my mind this afternoon:

1. I had a note on my cell phone stating "It doesn't matter how powerful your engines are if they don't have any fuel." I have no idea what this statement refers to, and I wish I did, since I think it's poignant.

2. Sheryl Crow was a little more enjoyable in her early years, when she was kind of dark and brooding.

3. I wish I has my own personal photographer, just to follow me around the halls with my digital camera and take candid shots of me while I do my job, then post those pics on the Internet in some kind of quasi-artsy display. Even better if those pics were black and white.

Coming on stronger than ever before!

One of the things I love about the 80's...
