Still Waiting on that White Christmas

It is December 24th, and it does not feel like Christmas tomorrow.
Snow is minimal,
icicles are M.I.A,
and christmas movies are still in the hatch under the TV.

Where are you Christmas, and why can't Cindy Lou Who or I find you?

I miss the magic of Christmas.  Yesterday some friends and I went to the mall and decided to get our picture taken with Santa.  Let me just tell you, Santa was the sweetest old man in a glued beard and moustache that I have ever seen.  He asked us what we wanted and if we had been good that year;
he even gave us a candy cane! OH GASH!
This was the first time I felt like Christmas was here.
I felt like a kid again.
And that's all I wanted, was that feeling.
It lasted a whole 2 minutes.

I must get ready for mass.  First time I've been to church since god knows when. Yikes!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year

A Reminder of Sorts

Feeling like shit is okay sometimes.
It reminds me that there are things to fix,
how certain chemicals don't mix,
how the sound of a guitar is so soothing, pleasing.
That no matter how much you are sweating your feet are always going to be ice cold.
That even though you have been staring at the screen for minutes, the clock has expired hours.
How sleep is the first thing on your mind but in fact the last thing you do.
How everything would be better if he was lying here beside me.
That always makes things better,
A little less, shitty.
