Winter Break

If you're reading this, it's officially Winter Solstice, the Mayan hooplah was BS as expected and I'm busy with things to do. Just like yesterday, the day before, and every day since I came out screaming. The closest I've heard about the end of anything is that last night was the last-ever episode of The Jersey Shore. Maybe that's what the Mayan Calendar was really about.

For the disappointed-

Happy Winter Everyone!

I'm on FB hiatus. The very best thing about Facebook is that you don't have to use it. It has already worn out its new car smell to me. The constant bickering and stupidity is soul-sucking and is contributing heavily to a whitewash of apathy that makes me look even paler. I know humanity is a red hemorrhoid, I don't have to watch them itch and swell before my eyes. And so, as a Yuletide present to myself, I'm taking a vacation until the new year. I'm sure it won't miss me; I know I won't miss it. I'm glad I found some old friends. We'll email now.

Facebook is wonderful and horrible. While I'm away from it I'll let it settle in my brains and come up with what I think of it. Right now I'm burnt on it.

Besides, I have something social going on every day from now until the 28th, and then 3 days of prep before the Alka-Seltzer Party on the 1st. Instead of February, I may sleep thru January. Except for the Heat Fund Radio days. And whenever company comes to town. And Special K's birthday party. And to work on the Worker's Center projects. And maybe re-write my fiction book. Well, maybe February it is.

Meanwhile, I still haven't found the Christmas stockings...

Busy, busy, busy. And I am reassurred that the decision I made not to play FB was right for me. I am quite connected enough. Sometimes too connected.

Well you found some friends on facebook and you found your brother...so...as a tool it works great, as a way of life, not so much lol.
I'm glad you're still here...I am too AND we have the tiniest little layer of snow this morning.
If you can't find your socks I guess everyone will just have to take theirs off and use those.
Merry Christmas to you

EC- I'll think about whether I go back after the holidays. I may just "lurk" here and there, now and then.

Lawless- so many people seem to live on the thing. For a while I just tried to keep up with all the posting, then I gave up. I have too much else going on to pay attention to what everyone I know is doing. I know too many people and I don't need to know every single thing they're doing and thinking.
Haha! There are some whose socks I don't particularly want to see...
Merry Christmas, blogsister!
