A lot of people are going to be travelling today and tomorrow, heading home for Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever pagan holiday you celebrate in a wild, hedonistic rush of egg nog-sloshing orgies and ritualistic murders out in the badlands past the edge of town. So, since most everyone will be drifting away from their computers (and, thus, my blog), I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and wish everyone a Happy Holidays now, before you're completely consumed with the minutia of familial festivities/hiding the bodies of all those hitchhikers.
So, yeah... Happy Holidays! Hope everyone has as good a time as possible in this current economic climate. I know things aren't going to be particularly holly-jolly for most folk this year; that's not necessarily your problem, but it should serve as a reminder to appreciate what you've got. In other words, don't be a dick about presents, wait until AFTER Christmas Day to tell the folks about your involvement in a heroin bust, and... for fuck's sake... just be nice to everybody. We're all stressed, we're all unhappy to varying degrees, life generally has found new and exciting ways to suck the souls right out of us... my point is, we're all in this together. Each and every one of us. So suck it up, bitches. Have a happy holidays. Or die trying.
Now... bit of programming info... Girlfriend and I are flying into Texas on Christmas Day and we're staying through New Years. No doubt there will be some posting on ZFS!, but it will be pretty light from now until 2009. When we get back to New York, however, it will be business as usual (such as it is).
Guess that's it. Safe travels, everybody, and again... seriously... happy holidays. Let's do our best to not let the brief time we spend with our families devolve into hurled invective, threats of violence, and cars set on fire as drunken revenge for wrongs real or imagined. Unless that's ACTUALLY part of your particular holiday's festivities. Then by all means.
Anyway, take care, kiddos!!!
