There are people who are alone on Christmas, no matter wheat all the movies and commercials and TV shows would have you believe. My family is way off in distant places- away from me, as I like it.Wouldn’t have it any other way. My friends usually are as well, but this year was different. Went to their house last night. Got fancy chocolate, which is great- who’s going to turn chocolate down? And even better, a $50 gift card from CompUSA- that is the one I really like.
I find this to be one of the most boring holidays, so I have created a list of things that could be done to fight the boredom.
- figure out how to spend the gift card- I’m pretty sure most everyone got one (mine might go for cordless headphones- I’ve been wanting a pair for a long time)
- find music on that radio what is not Christmas music
- listen to all those podcasts that are downloaded and waiting watch the videos on Throw Away Your TV and YouTube that you haven’t had a chance to watch because you’ve been busy doing other things (or so you tell yourself)
- try not to eat all the candy canes
- cook dinner not ruin it (I think that rule is mostly applicable to me, though I am sure there are others, whether you are willing to admit you’re inability to cook well or not)
- read that book you haven’t read much of because you’ve been too busy doing other things (or so you tell yourself)
- find interesting bits of information and put them in Clipmarks
- StumbleUpon stuff, like that thing in the previous entry- you know, what people do when they have way too much free time
- watch A Christmas Story on TBS at least once from beginning to end, and see how many scenes you know every line to, then realize that you need to get a life
- watch the stuff on the TiVo that hasn’t been watched yet
- catch up on your blog
- I’m sure there are a whole bunch more things, but I can’t seem to grab onto them right now
- most of all, don’t do anything you need or think you need to do- you can do all that on another day
So Happy Christmas and Merry New Year…
