My cold is gone, but there's a nagging leftover cough that comes on strong at times that just won't quit ya know? I wanna just take this cough and kill it! KILL IT! I need to just rest some more, and I think tonight will be good to just take it easy, stay warm, and repose at home. It is colder than usual here in Los Angeles, and we have stormy/rainy weather to go with it, so winter has arrived earlier than normal here. The mountains nearby are covered in snow! EES SO PURTY!
I get the feeling that Xmas will be economically tough for most people this year, and I have frankly grown tired of having to go out and buy gifts, so I have decided not to even bother. I don't wanna go to the mall, I don't wanna shop online, and there's really not that much money to spend now is there? I did get into the Xmas spirit by putting up our tree however, so at least I'm not a total Scrooge. As for my niece, I guess I'll get her something, or maybe just give the kid some cash. THERE. Problem solved. Is this bloody holiday over yet? I haven't really cared much for Xmas in years to be honest. It's a bit depressing, expensive, and stressful. As long as good friends and family are okay, that is really the whole point anyway. This overcommercialization of the holiday is ridiculous! And unlike the following picture taken earlier today at work suggests, I'm not a Grinch and I'm not planning to steal the holiday from nobody: Have any of you ever heard of Sufjan Stevens? It's pronounced SOOF-YAWN. He's a unique singer/songwriter from Michigan who happens to be easy on the eyes with the most wonderful erotic boyish voice. A regular Sufjan song first:
