Yeah, the Night's Not Over, You're Not Trying Hard Enough

My friend A. who lives in Texas just sent me some photos she took of her boys during their trip to New Mexico. The top one was at White Sands and the bottom one was from the UFO museum in Roswell. These pics, of course, have nothing to do with the rest of my post. I just think they're really cool.

Tonight I drove around a suburb of Iowa City with another friend of mine who's first initial is also A. We were trying to find a party at the house of our friend's girlfriend. The city planners of that particular suburb either do a lot of drugs or else have a cruel sense of humor. Almost all the brand new subdivisons looked identical and the streets had animal names. We were looking for Deer Road, but all we could find was Vixen Road. Even though we thought we'd have more fun hanging out with vixens, we really wanted to see our friend who was in town from Virginia.

We never did find his party, but it was a nice drive and when we got to A.'s house we were able to freak out her husband by sitting in her car in the driveway and talking, instead of going inside where it was warm like sane and normal people would do.

According to the clock on my computer, it is now Christmas Eve. I hope everyone gets safely to their destinations, and most importantly is actually able to find their way. Okay, happy, happy and my wish is that you all get what you want from this holiday. Personally, I would like world peace and some more time and money. Can you get any of that from a holiday?

Thanks Churls, hope you and the girls have a good one too.

I'm still in Richmond and was driving to get a movie last night and the streets were empty. I always live in places that empty out during holidays. Where does everyone go? Florida? Ohio? Or a suburb with streets named after animals (or trees like my folks')?

World peace, time AND money. Yes, you too can get all those things in a holiday. You can not get ANY of those things if the holiday involves, in any way, any family.

I didn't make the rules.

You're already plenty merry, so I'm wishing you the peace and money, instead.

Michael,

It being a college town, Iowa City clears out right after finals week too. It's the little towns on the outskirts that stay populated and overly decorated for the holidays. I'm not sure where people go. Maybe there's an island somewhere for Christmas refugees.

Booda Baby,

You are so right. Today we hang out with my family and I'm sure I will get very little peace or time, but I may get a tiny bit of money - hopefully enough for gas.

Thanks for the kind wishes and right back atchya

Churlita,
Merry christmas my friend. Your sparkling personnality is a wonderful gift and I'm glad to have the chance to share it.

Time and money are way over-rated. Friendship is the true currency of peace.

Rel,

Thanks so much for all of your positive feedback. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and new year.

And as always, you're right.

Major E Flat,

Merry Christmas to you too. Yes, I'm lucky because I do have a lot of love. I don't take that for granted. I'll still ask for money and time, though.

Bice,

Thanks for the wishes and the virtual snowflakes. That's probably as close as I'm going to get to a white Christmas.
