The Day of Reckoning and Exchanging Gifts

with 10 comments

2008-12-27

Ah, the return of the great chibi Paul! Between Tara and I, this day was jokingly referred to as the Day of Reckoning. It marks the first time in all my multitudinous relationships that I’ve ever had to do such a thing. You know, have a sitdown with the girlfriend’s father and explain what our relationship is about. Guess I’m an adult now though. Anyways, I had all the symptoms of a nervous soul/creepy neighbor hiding in a van: sweaty palms, uneasy giggle, shifty eyes, flushed face, and so on. But we got through it, for better or for worse.

And then it was time to exchange Christmas gifts:

Er, my bad. Also, this might be a bit funnier now that you have the above information. Tears make the holiday, right? 😛

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

I hid myself from failure and fear
Oh my dear you’re a threat to the bad in us all
They tell themselves that each word from your lips
Or the grace in your eyes overcomes any fall

Counting Bra Straps in Church Because I Can

I was walking along some downtown avenue
I was whistling a new song to myself
And it went, it went something like this one
But I just couldn’t make it end

Speeding Home for the Holidays

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride
Maybe you wonder where you are
I don’t care
Here is where time’s on our side
Take you there

What’s the Deal with Disappearing DVD Board Games?

Allow me to offer a pinch of advice to all my readers (all ten of you, that is): if you’re out holiday shopping and you see something that you are planning to buy, don’t be lazy like me and think, “Oh, I’ll get it on my way out so I don’t have to carry it around while I peruse bookshelves for an hour or so”…because it might just not be there upon your return.

Luckily, the stack of Scene It? Seinfelds had just been moved from the middle section of the Barnes & Noble up to where the registers are. I guess they wanted to shoehorn all the impulse buyers waiting in line. So, in the end, crisis averted.

For those in the know (Tara and fam), no one say anything about us being doppelgängers. That’s certainly a comic to come…

Nice surprise, I haven’t seen you in so long
We laugh and you smile and I stroke your hair
Drive me home in the same old car, the 4th of July
What am I, oh, what am I doing here
Come on in, yeah, stay for a while

Trying to X-mas Shop on a Sunday Afternoon

Anyone that knows me knows this: I’m a patient man hobbit. Yet, in this world of ours, there are a few things that I can’t handle and one of them in particular is parking lots during the holiday buying season. It’s just so…unmanageable. Chaotic might be an even more apt word. People are just the rudest then, jetting forward in their cars to snatch up any free rectangle-shaped space with no regard for those that were there first, blinker at the ready. I even saw some cars double-parking, which is awful for all.

It’s amazing we don’t read more newspaper headlines in December like “Man Shot One Hundred and Three Times After Stealing Soccer Mom’s Spot” or “Target Indeterminately Shut Down, Too Much Blood.”

But I learned my lesson. From now on, if I do have to get some X-mas shopping done, I’m going out Tuesday nights after 11:00 p.m. Granted, no stores will be open then…but at least I’ll get a good parking spot.

I’m making the difference
It just seems pointless
With all the obvious lines all out of focus
Why can’t you just be happy
Why can’t you just be happy
