Merry Christmas and stuff!
This year was spent with the in-laws who drove down from the mythical land of Georgia to partake in a true South Florida Christmas. What, you ask, is a “true” South Florida Christmas? Well, I moved to Florida in 1988, and this year has been the warmest holiday I can remember since then. The temperature is about eighty degrees and, yes, I am wearing shorts.
Ho, ho, ho and and turn on the A/C.
Karma woke us up at 7:30 AM to open gifts because she believes that she is a human child and not a canine. This resulted in Shannon torturing her by making her wear a Snuggie made for dogs. (Photo of the act of evil taking place here.) The next few hours were spent opening the dozens of gifts that somehow found their way to our tree. A majority of my gifts were (as you see in the above photo) Optimus Prime related. My mother-in-law is a huge fan of Eeyore and (thus) her gifts were also acquired based on her fondness of a character.
Both characters, ironically, were voiced a number of times by the same actor.
So this year was a Peter Cullen Kind of Christmas.
Whether you believe in God, Allah, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster – I don’t care. What I do care about is joining in a celebration that promotes goodwill towards one another and peace on Earth.
Merry Christmas to my family, friends, fans, and even that annoying asshole who cut me off on I-95 yesterday. I’m am truly a lucky man to be surrounded by so many amazing people in my life.
