Descent into Holiday Madness
The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is typically a pretty crappy time for blog posts. Generally speaking, I’m lucky if I can manage two solid posts in that month-and-a-half, which I have already delivered unto you (last week and the week prior). Sure, they were both posts in my music mixes series, which I find moderately easy to write, even though I know they appeal to a limited segment of my audience, but, as I continually remind you, you really shouldn’t be reading this stupid blog anyhow. And also plus anyway, one of those music posts was actually totally holidayily relevant, as it presented my second yuletide mix, which kicks some major butt. So you gotta be happy with that.
And I’m going to admit right up front that I’m writing the next two posts, which are scheduled to appear right on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day (respectively) right now, because, damn: it’s not like I’m going to take time to throw up even an excuse post on a major holiday. I mean, I like you guys, but I don’t like like you guys, knowwhatImean? Give a brother a break. Take some time off from reading silly crap on the Internet and go spend some time with your family. Next week (and the week after) I’ll have abbreviated posts for you, but nothing to get too excited about. Please take the opportunity to continue to spend time with your family. If you find yourself getting sick of your family, feel free to direct your efforts elsewhere, but hopefully somewhere still relaxifying and spirit-refreshing. Because you deserve it. No, I mean it: you really do. You gotta do you, at least every once in a while. Relax, refresh, and reset. Come at the new year with a new vim and vigor and vitality. It’ll be good. Trust me.
Till then, clink a glass with me and inhale deeply and picture your happy place. I’m right there with you.
