Ok folks, you know I don’t ask for much, but I need help. See, I’ve not got the Xmas Spirit like I should. Xmas is almost here, and I’m in a bummed out mood. There is no snow, it’s been raining for two days, and besides paying $1200+ to get the vehicle fixed last month the state of Wisconsin decided they paid me too much money during the summer and now wants $410 back before December 31st. (Thanks Wisconsin!) Bummer for me…

Anyway, things are more or less positive (except for the financial situation) so I really shouldn’t be bummed out. I’ve got the love of a great woman, 2 amazing kids, and 3 jobs which usually manage to pay the bills.

So either email me, or leave a comment and attempt to cheer me up. Thanks everyone!

(If I don’t see any comments by later today, I may start drinking heavily…)

Update: In an effort to raise my Xmas Spirit I started eating Xmas cookies, but now my stomach hurts. Damn you Xmas cookies!

  1. Pete: As much as I’d hate to get in between a man and his drinking … Merry Christmas, and may the new year bring you and your family good health, happiness and prosperity.

    I decided to go ahead and post a rare recording I’ve had for a long time in honor of your Christmas blues.
    It’s a very rare rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas” recorded by Janice Joplin’s Cat.

    With the love of a great woman and 2 amazing kids (a condition we share, btw), you’re rich indeed, in a way that nobody can touch. Add to that a fun blog and a love of things technical, and things are bound to improve. Merry Christmas!

    Awww… well, if it makes you feel better, the bill for the family minivan came out to $1400. Always look on the bright side of life…

    Let the kids open a present early and bask in their glow of Christmas excitement. Nothing gets you more holiday ready than seeing kids open presents :D
