Kill Me, Kiss Me, Feed Me to a Cow

One of my favorite aspects of South Park is when they animate a scene of angry people gathered into a crowd. Instead of giving the voice actors lines to shout over each other, everyone just screams, "Rabble, rabble, rabble, rabble!" over and over.

That's a bit what it's like in my head tonight, with a bunch of emotions elbowing one another for more room and making ever so much noise. In just the past few days, I have been: livid to the point of tears, worried, sad, giddy, guilt-ridden, ecstatic, and mischievous, just to name a few. At one point, my subconscious decided that the best solution was to drown the impending madness in true Hollywood style; before I knew it, I was looking up flasks on Etsy and trying to determine what sort of alcohol to buy online. (I'm sorry to report that I didn't make any purchases. 2011 will not be the year of the Drunkskirts.)

I suppose that's the nature of the Christmas season sometimes. Hectic, harried, bustling, dizzying. So I'm going to curl up with a crossword puzzle, some hot tea, and a purring kitty in a valiant attempt to find a little peace in the eye of the hurricane. I suggest you do the same.

I intend to tomorrow. I'm going to buy a Christmas tree, and decorate the hell out of it. That ought to do it.

Oh, and I may have an eensy glass of wine while I'm at it. (Hey. The bottles are glass.)

Um... Might I suggest some authentic Nog? You know, the kind made with rum? But really, Drunkenskirts is something to stay away from for sure. :-p I like the TeaKittyCrossword approach. Might I suggest some nice holiday red tea? And perhaps a few passages from the Psalms? They are generally applicable to peace in a storm. Many blessings to you in this hectic holiday season.

1) You can suggest whatever you like. I still won't drink it. The very idea of eggnog makes my stomach turn. 2) Drunkskirts, not Drunkenskirts. 3) Red tea sounds bloody. And weird. 4) Psalms are cool. 5) Back atcha.
