I will be off of work this entire week. My big plans mostly involve doing nothing. Zero, zippo, nada.

I have not had a do-nothing vacation in a long time. Not a whole week's worth anyways. Usually a three day weekend here or there, which generally isn't enough to do all of the nothing you want to accomplish anyways.

My plan is to finally get to the bottom of the laundry and clean our bedroom.

I'm hoping to do that today, but I have also met me so I'm not holding my breath.

That means that I will have more time to blog! Yay!

So, if you need me, I'm here. Mostly plan free! You can write, call, whatever.

Because I have a whole lot of nothing going on in here!

Merry Christmas one and all!

Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.— Oren Arnold

I feel like a million bucks!

I feel crazy happy these days -- this is the part of the hormone cycle that I LOVE! That almost makes up for the PMS part.

It's this sheer total happy feeling that just takes over and makes everything really shiny and bright. Where everyone is great and you love them and can't imagine ever feeling unhappy again? There's a sense of triumph over the unhappy phase, like HA! I beat that and look how bad I am.

It's Christmas and the promise of the New Year and losing 25 lbs and being with Scott and all of my friends being happy and on and on!! It's like the Tigger in your heart is God.

Are you guys really THAT pissed off that I am wishing you happy holidays rather than Merry Christmas?

What if you really are against Christmas, like Scott's best friend?

What if you are Jewish?

What if you are any of the other many religions that do not celebrate Christmas?

I think we have gone overboard in the other direction, yes. How offended are you really if I wish you Merry Christmas but you don't celebrate that holiday? It's not like I called your mom a whore or something, I'm just wishing you well. Hoping you enjoy the paid day off. Whatever. If you don't celebrate it, ignore the well wishes and assume that I was not deliberately trying to assume you are Christian or that you celebrate the holiday.

When did we get so fucking sensitive? I mean, we can't be too worried that the liberal media is taking over the holidays (this is one of the spins I have heard) because W got back in. I think we know just how separate the church and the state really are.

Because, if you are uncertain on this agenda, ask your gay friends when they're going to get married.

And on that note, MERRY FRIGGIN' CHRISTMAS and Happy New Year!

(Hope I didn't offend any Chinese people by not recognizing when THEIR year begins...)

Found this Quiz on Lori's blog

It's the Belief-o-Matic, which uses a personality test (of sorts) to help gauge what your religious affiliation is or should be. I was more than a little surprised to find out what my most suitable fit was... (followed by the rest of the Top 10)

1. Liberal Quakers (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (97%)
3. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestans (80%)
4. Reform Judaism (79%)
5. Neo-Pagan (79%)
6. Securlar Humanism (75%)
7. Mahayana Buddhism (74%)
8. New Age (71%)
9. New Thought (68%)
10. Taoism (67%)

Um, Quakerism? Hm.

Julia's begging for a blog and I know I need to put one out there, but I am still super-tired and recuperating from this weekend. I will try again tomorrow. Promise!
