Kindness and compassion for those less fortunate, tolerance for those who believe differently, grace and acceptance, that all brothers and sisters of the world unite in love and harmony and a drunken, "no limits" three-way with Fairuza Balk and that big-toothed chick from QVC.

And maybe peace on earth, too.

I thought for a moment that the mighty pscates had become a sap. I missed the "drunken, "no limits" three-way with Fairuza Balk and that big-toothed chick from QVC" first time round.

Here I was, about to post a huge list involving Tiffany's, Bentleys, and Jimmy Choos, then all you guys go and get compassionate and wussy. Jeez.

NEVER! Not to worry...



That was my little trick...load up on the sap factor early on. For those of you who managed to stick with it, you'd get the little prize at the end (Fairuza and QVC vixen reference).



But in all seriousness, I would like there to be a nice, safe and peaceful Christmas for everyone. That ain't sap...that's just being a good person.

Yes, you're right. A beautiful sentiment. *COUGH*sap*COUGH*

Truth be told, I'm busy making Christmas cards for the kids I see at clinic. I'm not entirely evil, despite trying so hard. I hope they appreciate the sacrifices I've made - my iBook is now covered in silver glitter glue.

That's funny, because I'm sitting here tonight making MY Christmas cards as well. Five designs, all done in Illustrator. A funny one, a traditional "serious" one, a tech/Mac-oriented one for my fellow Mac/designer geek buddies, a generic one and a colorful one that I'll send to kids I know.

Just got an Epson Stylus Photo 820 today, so I'll give it a good "breaking in" over the weekend.

Yeah, that's my big roaring Friday night: iTunes cranked, endless IV of Dr. Pepper at the ready, Illustrator fired up, flannel pants on (orange, no less), etc.



I'm quite chirpy at the moment and totally digging my evening!

Doesn't take much...

It's one of my favorite things at Christmas! I love designing and making cards. Not that they're in any way professional. Just me, some card, scissors, glue, paint, and a heck of a lot of glitter.

I'm also putting together little things to attach to gifts with small pine cones, holly, and berries, which I tie to the ribbons. I think I'm one of very few who actually enjoys wrapping!

It is kind of sad, I guess. I just took a bath and changed into my jammies. (Stop snickering at the back!) Sometimes it's good to stay home.

Not sad at all, Belle. I'm having the kind of evening I've been craving for a couple of weeks now: no commitments, no crowds, no spending money, etc.

I'd make up a batch of mulled wine, but I feel it's cheating when it isn't even December yet! I'm going to treat myself to a hot chocolate and raid my stash of Krispy Kremes later.

Oh, and I've got a great Christmas movie on: Some people choose White Christmas, others love It's A Wonderful Life... Me? I'm watching Die Hard.

"Ho ho ho...now I have a machine gun".

Bruce Willis' best movie EVER! Definitely one of those "can watch it again and again" and never get tired of it (like "Jaws", "Goodfellas" and "Glengarry Glen Ross").



Kinda started that whole "hero trapped in a unique place with terrorists/meanies and has to dispose of them with stealth and cunning" genre, didn't it?



I mean, SO many movies came out in the following decade or so that critics called "Die Hard on an airplane..." or "Die Hard on a ship" or "Die Hard in a laundromat..." or whatever.

The first and the best. And yes, in its own twisted way it IS a Christmas movie!

As is the first "Lethal Weapon". Remember?

Two great action movies that define Christmas in SoCal!

World Peace! Wish all those no brain and idoltic terrorists will just disappear, or suddenly realise that their actions are immature and not helpful to their cause at all.

Secondly, to pass a certain PPT, which is critical to my career

Merry X'mas everyone!
