tidings on this december morn

(Written on November 30th at 8pm.)

It's the most wonderful time of the day. The children are nestled all snug in their beds.  The halls are decked.  The laundry is done. Peace on Earth.

I went to the grocery store earlier today. There were five different kinds of eggnog. I don't actually know anyone who likes eggnog.  Who is buying all this eggnog?  These are the things that I think about.

The halls are decked, but the mantle isn't quite finished. Big project this year folks. Ha! I say "this year" like all the other years have been simple.  Sometimes I'm really in denial about my extreme craftiness obsessiveness. E.C.O. It should be added to Wikipedia. You might have it too.

If you have ever fallen asleep and woken up with one side of your face glittered, you may have E.C.O..

And another thing: If loving Pink is wrong, then I don't wanna be right. She makes my head bob and my legs bounce. She makes me want to go running. And that, my friends, is just what I need these days.

Happy December friends! Come back. It's gunna be a good month.

Pink ROCKS the land down under - absolutely ROCKS it! Hugest mobs of Pink adoring fans down there. She has testicles the size of uranus - I LOVE THAT GUTSY AMAZING TALENTED GORGEOUS WOMAN!!!

Happy "festivating"! If you do it while listening to Pink, so much the better.

I love Pink also! Oh, & I do like Eggnog but not too much cause it makes me sick if I endulge! There's something about the hustle and bustle of December that makes you love it for some reason!

You can set your mind to rest . . . all the eggnog is for me, dear. It's a fairly tasty obsession.

I love eggnog, but the original kind. I am a little afraid of all the other flavors.
None of my halls are decked yet...Maybe this weekend? "Go Slow" is my motto this season.

ME. I looooove egg nog. I usually buy two or three different kinds, for taste-testing purposes of course, plus I have to have the full-fat AND the low-fat, because sometimes I really need the hard stuff, but other times I am thinking of my waist line, and then you get to salute anyone in your vicinity with your glass by shouting NOG! at them and it's really a lot of fun, what is wrong with you? Not liking egg nog? Weird.

My roommates LOVE eggnog... but only the kind you are supposed to mix with alcohol (obviously, we dont) and I just voted last night for PINK for People's choice award! I love her and her story!! :)
