Christmas Actually

Merry what's-left-of-Christmas, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful day.

I'm exhausted, having spent the past couple of days going at a dead run, but it was still a nice holiday.

My sis, her fiancee and I went last night to see the Narnia movie. It really is wonderfully done, the animation nearly flawless and the characters (both live and animated) amazing. The children played their parts to perfection, including the youngest child. That's saying a lot; not many kids that young can fake crying and make it that believable. (Well, not on camera, anyway. If there's a cookie, candy or other goodies at stake, all bets are off.)

This week is going to be busy as heck again - I'm taking next Monday off, so will have to schedule the additional day's programming unless I make a special trip in to do so Monday. Though come to think of it, I might do that, since I'll already be providing a grand tour of the area that day, anyway. It doesn't take me long to create and load a schedule if that's all I need to do.

2005 seems to have been a year for weddings and romance in my family. My youngest got married; my sister got engaged; my niece got married night before last; and I can refer to my love life again without snickering, rolling my eyes or becoming ill.

I hope that isn't a sign of the apocalypse...

Of course at this point, my love life is still a pretty nebulous place, though there's been some interesting ebb and flow lately. I'm fine with that for the moment. The panic is hereby postponed until after the holidays.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
