24. December, 2004 - Christmas Eve Morn

Well, I find myself writing this as I get home from the bar, early on the morn of Christmas Eve. It was a fun evening, and I’m glad Bill brought Ryan along for drinks. I had a fun evening, would gladly do it again, and I’m pretty sure that’s not just the likker talking.

Today looked scary from a distance, but as I get closer to it, I’m much less afraid. The big social obligation is the evening with the cousins, and what the hell, they’re related to me, so they have to put up with me, right? I’m actually looking forward to it, though. They’re good folks, even if we don’t see eye to eye, and since we’re family, we all have to be tolerant of the differences we have, right? And since we’re all Polish, we all have to realize that the other guy’s a hardhead, and we have to be really tolerant.

In any case, I think this will be a good day, as will tomorrow. I only have to deal with family, and we’re all pretty tolerant of each other’s foibles. We’re not the closest family, but it’s Christmas, so we’ll get along. There’s a few grumpy links after this, but take the commentary with a grain of salt. I’m in a good mood, no matter what it sounds like.
