i'm burnt today from a company Christmas party last night. It was fun the company, the fellowship and camaraderie was good, lots of laughs. Food and
booze was great. It was fun.
One of my colleagues and his brother are joke writers but they really suck at it, thinking that all that's needed for a good joke is a pun on words.
The poor guy he had his best joke or two typed out and no one laughed until I exclaimed "that's not necessarily funny at all" but we came up with one
that really made me smile, it goes - what do you call the tiny face of a baby moray eel? electrocute.
So today is one of those aimless doing anything days and i'm going to go have a nap and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow with some old
friends who moved to town, we're having a ham.
And there's going to be a spread of cheeses, patays, dips, chips, special crackers, veggies etc. with lots of beer maybe even games if we decide to be
adventurous. It should be fun and i'm looking forward to it and i even have a re-gift from the company Christmas party, a large scented candle and a
box of chocolates. Not that all i care about is food and booze mind you, but it's something to talk about that's Christmassy, and i said earlier that
i was going to drop in here and share my cheer, and well food and booze and good friendship makes me happy but i'm not an alcoholic don't get me
wrong, but i do love a special occasion and a cause for Celebration and what better is there than Christmas.
It's still tiring though, I'm not a spring chicken anymore although not too old at 47. Now i have to rest between parties, to be in a position to
party a second time in a space of three days, but i'm counting my blessings that it turned out to be a really nice Christmas this year, and now i get
to go curl up in a ball and sleep without any chores or responsibility to do anything at all, and doing nothing really well, without any
responsibility, for a day or two, or three, is it's own merriment, imho.
A time to really decompress and shake off all our old worries and concerns which weren't accomplishing anything anyway to begin with.
Merry Christmas, HO HO HO (it IS funny, the true meaning of Christmas, I think),
