And if, like me, you have "trouble" with the holidays, you don't have to be alone, you can be with me!
Virtually, that is. The Internet. A private chat, just us. Lotsa jabberin'. Come on in and "set" a spell.
What I'd like to do is create a temporary chat room for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for those of us who get the blues at Christmas.
See, I'm one of those people too, and you'd be helping me by giving me something to do and somebody to do it with! (minds outta the gutter chirrun!:))
A lot of what could happen depends on y'all wanting to do this and how MANY of you want to do this. It wouldn't be a voice chat, unless y'all want it to be, so it would be just us, but that too is open to discussion and change.
I just need for y'all to leave me a yea or nay in the comments, because there's no use me sitting here waiting for someone to come online when I could be working on something else.
We'll set up a time via a vote from y'all when we'll best be available, and we can just jabber our little butts off as long as you want.
How does 9pm - 12 am Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sound? We can chat on google talk. Send me an e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you an invite.
Again. If this doesn't work for any of you, tell me, okay?
I told y'all I wasn't gonna beat you upside the head with Christmas music, but I didn't say anything about not celebrating the Winter Solstice.
This one is on one of my Wyndham Hill Winter Solstice cd's.
It's called Flute Sonata in E minor, 3rd Movement, and it was written for flute and harpsichord by Georg Frideric Handel in the 1700's although some folks say its origin is dubious and some have even attributed the work to one of the Bach boys. They weren't homies, but they were contemporaries.
Be that as it may, it's a wonderful way to spend a winter evening wrapped up in a throw in front of a fireplace, or just pretending you're doin' that while leaned back in your La-Z-Boy or lying on the sofa with a cuppa hot tea or coffee nearby!
Please also remember to take a bag of food, some old towels, newspapers, etc. to your local shelter if you can.
Yes, I know it's gonna be hard to tear yourself away from all those little ones, but you can do it. (If you can't, well then, congratulations on finding yourself a new little friend!)
