One week to go until the countdown begins again!
The holiday crunch is officially upon us! How do I know this? Because last night at work I witnessed the finest holiday spread ever known to man kind. Two cases of White Castles, two stacks of fresh Krispy Kreme donuts and two boxes of Krispy Kreme coffee. Yum! From last night forward our office will be filled with this wonderful food every night. The Birdman and Kim Jong Ramone would wet themselves if they worked with me, and the Grumbler and Willsix would shit themselves.
Whenever Christmas falls on a Sunday or a Monday I get an extra special Christmas bonus at work, an extra day added to my schedule. Yep, I'll be working 6 days next week. It's OK though, I'll get to redeem that day sometime during the next quarter along with an extra day for the day after Thanksgiving and New Years Eve(I'm not working New Years Eve, but I get a day off for it because it falls on the weekend).
We're just about done with our Christmas shopping. Most of the presents under the tree are for me! Allyson went to town yesterday (What a wonderful woman). Next year most of the presents under the tree will be for Corky's offspring, so we decided to spoil ourselves one last time. Who the hell am I kidding, there will be plenty of presents for me as well!
Every year the during the first week of December I get a half month bonus that is used exclusively for presents ( not so long ago things were so tight that I used this bonus to catch up on bills, but hopefully those days are gone forever). We split the bonus for our holiday shopping. Now that there's going to be three of us, one of us has to be cut out. Sorry Allyson. I'm sure that Corky Jr.(regardless of the child's gender, the child will be named Corky Jr.) and I will make you something nice. Perhaps a replica of our apartment made out of Popsicle sticks.
I hope everybody has a great weekend! Feel free to enjoy our fake tree. Can you guess which ornaments are mine? Oh and sorry about that musty electrical socket eye sore, I haven't gotten around to painting that wall yet.
Christmas Prayer: Dear God, please show Nonny the way. She doesn't belive in Beta, help her to see the light.
