I may not be in the Christmas spirit in real life right now (bah, humbug), but I sure am into the whole holly jolly thing on this blog! Why is that? Is it because I don’t have to actually relate to you on a regular basis, like I do my family and friends and coworkers and everyone else who so often annoys me? I love my real-world companions to death, but jeez, I sure do get sick of them sometimes. I don’t grow tired of any of you because you’re always fun, and I can go for days without speaking to you without fear of repercussions. You don’t hound me with annoying questions like, “Where have you been,” and “Why don’t you answer your e-mails? Pay attention to me, pay attention to me, pay attention to me, me, ME, ME, ME!”
Ahem, um, sorry.
Like I was saying, I’m into the Christmas spirit here in blogalalaland because it’s not real life and all my blogging companions are cool and smart and interesting. All of you are better than real people. If you suffer from severe halitosis or have a voice like Elmer Fudd’s, it doesn’t matter because you’ll be forever beautiful and brilliant in my imagination. It’s really true that the dream is always better than the reality. Because my heart is so full of affection for you, I’ve created a second blogging award that I’m sure you’ll appreciate. You can display it proudly on your blog if you wish, or, if you’re above such pedestrian frivolity, you can simply let my magnanimous gesture linger in your minds forever. Either way, I’d just like to let you know that I’ve had a great time laughing and discussing and reading with all of you over the past year. And so, without further ado (thank God) here is my gift to you:
If your name is on this list, then this award is yours!
