It’s time for the cliffhanger music to play. Next week will be my last post before Christmas. Unfortunately Christmas will be a little different this year. I have to work over Christmas week. I get Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off but, for all intents and purposes, it will be an ordinary week. Presents are bought, though not yet wrapped, so I guess I’m ready.
I mentioned last week about the grotto at work. There was something not quite right about it that I couldn’t quite put my finger on – now I know. Some of the songs are not the proper versions.
This is great:
The version at the grotto not so good. Insistently I don’t think the economical implications of this have been considered.
To be honest I’m becoming a bit of a Scrooge lately. I’ve passed from childhood excitement, to adult apathy, and landed on a slight dislike. Only a slight dislike mind you.
Christmas will be strange this year. Working Boxing Day is not fun.
The above shows it could be worse.
Every year we, as in society, talk about the new year being a signer of a change. “This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.” (Douglas Adams – The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.)
It would be nice to believe that 2015 will be the year of peace. It won’t be of course but its nice to dream.
I might at least be able to make it a great year for myself. At the very least I’d like to encourage a few more green pieces of paper my way.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Best of the Season, Happy New Year, and any other celebration that may be coming up – and lets try to make 2015 a fantastic year.
Peace and long life.
Live long and prosper.
