Home for the Holidays

I heard a rumor that Christmas is in three days! I'm not sure if I heard it on the Internet, television, or You Porn, but I know I heard it somewhere, and I think it's probably true because there's a fake Christmas tree leaning lopsided in the middle of my living room right now.

We're finally in our new place and I plan on posting a few pics of the joint after the holiday. Life has been crazy for us over the past two weeks... However, I finally got a chance to catch my breath last night when I went to sleep at 8 and woke up at 8 this morning. Been a long time since I've slept like that and it will be long time until I sleep like that again. It was a glorious night though.

There are lots of things I love about the holidays, like getting presents, getting presents, and getting presents. That's what this whole ting is about right? I could spend the rest of this post speculating about all the fine gifts that Allyson is going to give me, but I have to keep this post relatively short. Right?

Besides spending time with loved ones and making merry, my favorite thing about Christmas is going outside sometime after midnight and listening to the silence of Christmas night. That's what it's all about for me. It makes me feel hopeful, and I do it every year no matter what condition I'm in or where I'm living. Sober, drunk, high, sick, in a red carpeted family room, on a roof in NJ, in a martial arts studio in DC, or in my new old Kentucky home, it really doesn't matter. I imagine a peaceful world, and I feel a hope that this world so desperately needs.

Merry Christmas my friends. God Bless Us Everyone including all of you Jews, Muslims, atheists, agnostic crackheads, and especially all of the lovers and the dreamers.

Merry Christmas, Captain.

Moving during the holiday season? Cripes, that's gotta be hectic. No wonder you slept like a dead redshirt.

I don't think I've ever seen you blog this late either, but that's all good. Hope you get everything you want this holiday season. Me? My car's engine caught fire tonight. So guess what Santa is not bringing me for Christmas...

captain corky said...

Same to you and yours Maddy. :)

Eric: I work nights, so usually I do my blogging durning the early hours of the morning, but I don't work on Saturdays. Thank God.

Sorry about your car man, that sucks!

I SCOURED you porn. I found some interesting things done with mistletoe and a few girls working a "yule log" but nothing about Christmas itself.

TheBirdman33 said...

Merry Christmas and welcome to the new house!

eric1313 said...

Ahhh, don't worry about it. It sucks, but I'll get another one soon. I have my eye on a cool truck right now.

Besides, it actually might not be that bad. I t seems the catalytic converter is clogged up and causing the thing to back fire horrendously, so it blasted the air intake loose, and from there, that was where the flames and smoke all came from.

I thought I'd broken my timing chain! That would have been a real shit way to go. So I'll fix it and sell it and pick up the truck.

Things will be just fine.

Wizened Wizard said...

Hope you got everything you wish for... especially Peace.

Here is my holiday card for you.

All that's good to you and yours ~

I LOVE the quiet of Christmas night too! Although they've gotten a considerable amount noisier since my brothers grew up and no longer have to go to bed early for Santa. :)

Emmeline said...

What a sweet message corky! Thanks!

Hope you enjoyed the holidays with the loved ones! Peace~

Heidi the Hick said...

I LOVE those last two paragraphs!!!

Peace and love, bro!

eric1313 said...

I was going to say something about the price, but they fuck us on the price of trucks, too.

But SUVs are way expensive. You can't even rely on a used one a lot of times, since so many dipshits think that they can drive over anything in them and they screw the suspension and everything all up, then try to sell them to someone else.

Yeah, a truck is probably in my future. If I had my druthers, I'd get a Ford Mustang. I love them.

Cindy-Lou said...

How could you cut off the part when his brother shows up? That's sacrilegious!
