It's just me, my Budweiser, and I.

Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone and a Safe New Year.

I don't get to see the children for Christmas this year, so I've just opened the first bottle of substitute Christmas cheer and put on Handel's 'Messiah' at ceiling crumbling volume. Hopefully the combination will induce a clever thought before it induces vomiting.

An anecdote: Dorothy Parker once had a small office at the Met, and got depressed and lonely because no one ever came to see her. When the painter came to put her name on the door, she asked him to simply write the word 'GENTLEMEN'.

Here's wishing that, like Thoreau, ye find yer solitude companionable; and if not, that ye find a clever solution.

(Lacking that, drink heavily and pass out early. That's the whole of me own plan thus far . . . )

I am just leaving for work.

My son just left to spend Christmas with that woman who bore him.

Merry Christmas, to everyone, and to each, a heartfelt prayer for joy.

Kinda late, but just visit the Yahoo Chat room & talk to the people who just got their computers. You can have a lot of fun with them.

Fuzzy get up with the times hon...everything from the '60 is back in again. Blacklights, lava lamps, even glow-in-the-dark body paints.... So dust off those platform shoes and pull out the polyester.. it's retro time!

Relive? Hell I refuse to ever grow up! My inner child has way too much fun to ignore. You should try it sometime

Well CanadianSue...I never had body paints as a child either....never really had the desire to spread that shit all over me...and my inner child definitely cries out for a much more satisfying experience than paint...plus my body at this point in time..just ain't the painting kind....so why lie about it and deceive myself? I'm much rather sit on a beach with my SO and watch the sun rise or set...with waves crashing around...and exchange simple kisses...if I mentioned body paints...he'd probably have me commited...although now that I think of it he does have a thing for whipped cream..lol

Well if we are talking food...LOL.. I do believe whipped cream, chocolate syrup and honey rate over glow-in-the-dark paints anyday. Still there is something a bit ticklish about a paintbrush.

Tangent alert!

One of the best gifts I EVER got was this cool bathtub paint stuff; you could paint all over yourself, the tub and it washed right off and made a ton of bubbles! I got it for my birthday when I turned 25 and I still remember using it up in about a week.

I'd LOVE to lay my hands on some more of it and play in the tub with my SO. Yeah, it's silly, child-like, but I think it would be a riot! Talk about getting dirty while you get clean!

As for the OP: even though I was alone this year I had a wonderful time. I spoke with everyone in my family and felt closer, emotionally, to them than I have in years. Some times being alone isn't being lonely.

Best wishes to all!
Byz
