Deck The Wall

My sad attempt at sprucing up a classic carol...

Deck the Wall

Deck the wall with mindless posts
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
'Tis the reason there’s a drunkin’ host
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Don we now our minds in peril
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Trolling chat to should make us sterile
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

See the hell raising regs before us.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Our boo-fucking-hoos are a well-played chorus
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Follow me in keyboarding pleasure.
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
While I tell of past chat leisure .
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Fast away the old whine passes.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Hail the new year, lads and lasses
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Wall reading we enjoy, all together.
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Heedless of our ruffed feathers.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Happy holidays ya'll and pass the eggnog!

Tokens

Who doesn't like to receive something wrapped in a bow?  

Your heart quickens a little as you strip off the ribbons and shred the paper to find your hidden treasure inside.  I truly believe I enjoy watching the delight tumble about as gifts are revealed.  Giving is much better than receiving.....

The gifts I remember most are the ones that come from the heart.  A picture from a friend miles away, a bag of peppermints that were delivered when I wasn't feeling well, a hand-written letter, and a hand-made jewelry box...these a just a few of my favorite things that meant so much to me.

I am not saying that you shouldn't spend money on people you care about...I am only saying the gift should mean something.  You should feel excited to give gift and not just the excitement of checking off another name from your shopping list.

Embrace the feeling of giving and be thankful when receiving.  Enjoy each other and celebrate with tokens of your caring.

There is a secret to giving the perfect gift..give from your heart and you will never go wrong...

'Tis the Season

When I look around my neighbor, I see the sparkle of Christmas lights and feel the warmth of the season.

 I know that if the world had a holiday illumination all year round that we wouldn't see how special it is.  It would become routine and just fade into the background of life.  Such a sad fate, for such a magical event.

As much as I love to see bright hues and hear the joyous spark of the season, I know they have to be enjoyed in moderation.

There will be a time to pack this all away and settle in to the everyday grind but for now, it is time to open your eyes and see the magic.  It is time to inhale the spirit of giving.  It is time to find the happiness around you...

Infectious

Do you think people are nicer this time of year?  

I have to say that I keep bumping into the nicest of people lately and it really has inspired me to do something good in return.  I am not into grand gestures but little tokens of caring go a long way.

I have found that if you smile and say something pleasant you get that two-fold in return.  I have been adding a little more to my tips and making sure I thank all who do something for me, no matter how small it would seem.  I hug a little more and laugh until I cry and I find that this is all infectious.

You can give negativity to the world and I believe you will get that back in return....but if you give something positive from the heart, no matter how small...you will feel the power of good in world and how nice that can really be...

Jump Me!

The crisp air nipped at my nose as I trudged  through the darken parking lot towards my car.  I had stayed late to wrap up some work and at this point,  I just wanted to get home.

I unlocked the door and slipped behind the steering wheel. I could feel my cold breath against the semi-frozen hands.  I turned the key and the engine whimpered a bit before falling silent...my battery was dead!

What do I do?  I noticed a running car parked across the lot.  This was my answer.  I tapped on the window and peered at bewildered set of eyes as the window slowly opened.

I asked if he could jump me but he didn't have jumper cables.  It was a good thing that I have some in my car. He hooked them up and suggested that I pour a can of cola over the battery to help clear off some of the corrosion when I get home because he believed the battery wasn't getting enough juice.

I smiled and thanked him for his help.  I am sure the cola tip would have worked but I figured I would end up making the problem worse so I just took it to the mechanic.  His diagnosis...the battery was bad...so no cola bath in the world could have fixed my problem....

I have learned that taking shortcuts sometime take longer than the actual path...

Say What You Mean

I haven't been online much this week because real life has a way of dragging you back in...

This has been a pretty crazy week for me but mostly because of a lack of communication with my boss.  I just realized that mind reading is a skill that my superior believes I possess but at las, I do not.

This has lead to a lot of frustrating moments for me because in a tug-a-war of who is right, the balance always tips to the one getting the higher paycheck.  The poorer one ends up re-doing everything to appease the God-like ego baring one.

I like efficiency and working smarter not harder so I have to wrap my head around communicating with someone who doesn't say what they mean but has hidden meaning behind words.

Where is my decoder ring when I need it...

Shine the Light

I had a great time last night.  It has been a awhile since I just went out and danced all night.

 I forgot how alive you feel as you become one with the beat and transcend to another world of rhythm and motion.

I woke up this morning refreshed and ready to tackle my day...then I ran into a hater online.

 Apparently I am so pathetic that I write a blog about chatting.com...ok, this just made me laugh.

 I guess I should be insulted but frankly, this person obviously doesn't get who I am and why I am here and he can think anything he likes.  It still won't change why or what I write about.

If you read my blog from beginning to end, you will see how much I have grown and changed over the years.  I am definitely not the same person I use to be and I think that is a very good thing.  There is so much of who I am that I hold back from this online world because there is no place for it here.

 You only get a glimpse of who people really are here and that has to be enough.  If it is not, then you need to step out from behind the keyboard and shine the light of the real world on things.

I know who I am and I know what it takes for me to be truly happy and they may make me pathetic in your eyes but frankly, I live my life looking though my own lens...
