Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and fun christmas for those who celebrate the holiday. If not, I hope you have a great next few days! ♥

I managed to get all my cards out on time this year. Of course, in my zeal to mail them -- I got them out but didn't actually get to my PO box before Christmas. So *g* will be looking forward to a nice parcel of mail awaiting me. :D

Christmas... shall be very different this year, in that my cousin is dating a woman 10 years older than he is, with two children. We're not on speaking terms with my grandfather (yes, still. we haven't spoken since about March) -- so I know it's weighing a lot on my dad. My Grandfather and I had a tradition that every year, I called on christmas eve to wish "Buona Vagilia" and on Christmas Day, "Buon Natale." (forgive the most likely butchered spellings. I've only ever said it -- never wrote it down!). This year... there will be no phone calls. No seeing him. And while he's a bastard... it's still hard. Not doing anything on Christmas is the affirmation that he is really dead to us until he apologises to my mother. And since we all know he never will... It's like losing a relative you never had a chance to make peace with. Yeah, it's going to be a hard Christmas.

And also -- I've had a rough year. Seems like RL loves nothing more than to continually kick me in the proverbial balls every chance it gets. I just... thanks for being here for me and being folks that I know I can turn to when the going gets rough. I love you all so much.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a happy time with their families. And if there isn't happy times -- that's why god invented alcohol.

Merry Christmas! I wish I could send you a cup of the Dickens Christmas Punch I'm making tonight and a big plate of pasta and game hen!
