The Christmas season brings lots of things our way: presents, parties, good food, good friends, family, a day off, and the thing that gets given more than anything else this time of year – germs. All those sick people who should be home are out buying presents, going to dinner and parties, and going to work. They are generous folk who just have to give each and every one of us the gift that keeps on giving – their cold. Dontcha just love it?
I’ve been dousing my hands with antibacterial gel every time I touch a doorknob or have to leave my desk. Geez. All I need is to get sick right now. It hits me harder than it does most people because of my stupid asthma, but you know, those gift givers out there just don’t seem to care. They are hell bent to give me their germs with a big Christmas bow on them… special delivery even. *sigh* There seems to be nothing we can do. And unfortunately, if I am given the cold, I will be forced to regift it because I can’t afford to miss work right now. It’s a horrid cycle. Every year I just hate it.
This time of year brings lots of things to spew about but I think I’ll refrain from the rest of it for now. I don’t want to be in a worse mood than I already am. Maybe if I’m nice the gods will take pity on me and my 99 temperature and sniffles won’t go full blown. It’s been the same for 48 hours so I’m hoping this is the extent of the gift I’ve been given.
Since it is the holiday season, I’ve decided that first off today we’ll have our usual Marcus and then some holiday hotties for those of any sexual persuasion. I will try to be back tomorrow, and on Christmas Eve, with more holiday hotties, but I have to make pineapple chiffon cheesecake when I get off work at 3 pm Christmas Eve so we’ll see. BTW, you are all invited to stop by my shack for some cheesecake, hot cocoa, and spiced cider with rum!
First up in photos is our Marcus for this Monday. Umm umm. He is just fine in this picture, don’t ya think? Wearing red for the holiday even!
Next, I have a couple of holiday hotties for you. Take out the drool bibs!
I’m still busy trying to crank out Sunday’s Child: The Wise Guy by the first week of January, so wish me luck. It’s been a little tough getting motivated. Have a great holiday Monday!
