$WINTERHOLIDAY wishes

sithjawa posted wishing everyone an enjoyable holiday that they don't celebrate, and I really feel it's a wish worthy of spreading.

Not celebrating Christmas? I wish you the merriest of quiet Christmases, entirely free from the looming spectre of Santa Claus, an out-of-season Baby Jesus, and the incessant jangling holiday music. Peace be with you. (In fact, if you are celebrating Christmas, may the angst of the season give you a miss as well.)

Not celebrating Kwanzaa? I wish you a week of the finest unity, self-determination, community in a number of different flavors, purpose, creativity, and faith. May you never want for books and the heritage of your culture, whether it be the culture of your birth or a chosen or rediscovered culture.

Not celebrating Chanukah? I wish you the happiest of Chanukahs, one of miracles, peace and plenty, with all the light and sacred supplies you need, without an invading army knocking down your walls.

Not celebrating the winter Solstice? I wish you the happiest of Yules, and the continued rotation of the Earth and its progress along the orbital path around the Sun, and no disruption to the regular wobble. Let's hear it for the progression of the seasons!


If you celebrate all of these or more, enjoy! But if you don't celebrate, know that I wish you the happiness of the holiday spirit without the occasionally-obnoxious trimmings.

Wedding Dreams

In this crazy current US society, a Dream Wedding is one of the "natural rights" of your standard-issue Upper Middle Class girl. A good little miniature Barbie raised on spun sugar and dreams of a Happily Ever After will plot out the wedding with a cardboard Ken standing in as groom. It's all about the performance, not the mate.

And every last detail must be perfect.

On the contrary, it means that the Lunatic was surfing around for Pottersmut and wound up reading a wedding fic with link to Tiffany's to illustrate Draco's shiny pretty ring.

Finally out the door. Not much writing this week. Double long bus. I am polished to look presentable. Loud guy.

Not so nice Super was out sick Sunday and no one else knew how to bring the dialer up. Cinderella called a geek.

Somehow Cinderella managed to get the dialer up skipping the remote access bit. It was not on the back room box.

The dialer was running on the bullpen machine she'd tried to VNC in from. I found it so cute. Not stupid but baby geek.

Life, it is good. Wrote a drabble in the Necromancer's Prayer universe. Feels weird to write fanfic for your own universe
