Yes, it is closing in on the end of my current employment, and yes I have a new opportunity on the next horizon.
Yes, Becky will be coming to visit (allegedly) on the 26th of this month (possibly Morty and George too!).
Yes, people around the globe will be celebrating the birth of baby jebus or the arrival of Santy Claus.....or both, as somehow they can't really separate one from the other, even though they shouldn't be related.
I particularly chuckled at the Big Bang Theory (don't laugh, it's a funny funny show) when the head nerd guy described the holiday:
December 25th, 1642. Julian calendar. Sir Issac Newton is born. Jesus, however, was actually born in the summer. His birthday was moved to coincide with the traditional pagan holiday that celebrates the winter solstice with lit fires and slaughtered guts.
You have to see it done in complete deadpan, of course. ...and no, I didn't memorize it or anything....I looked for the exact quote on-line, thank you.
But none of these are the highlight of the week. I mean, I can and will tie in part of the quote of the winter solstice - which is today at 17:47 (that's 5:47 pm).....Greenwich Mean Time, of course.
It is the shortest day of the year. Well, I mean, they're all pretty much 24 hours and such, but it is the least amount of daylight during the year - which means the days will start getting longer. Unfortunately, they will not start getting warmer, but I'll take what I can get.
I am very much like my father in pointing this out, I might add. But I've stopped fighting fate, to a degree, that I am and will turn out like him.
