|Subject: Another Turkey Bloat|
Posted Nov 23, 2001 by Storm Runner
Okay, it pegs me as a Dirty American, but I have to put in a word of the day: Bloated. I let out my pants and all, but the puffy gut is still there. By tomorrow I'll have a headache from eating too much today. Then the mad rush for Christmas gifts begins. Being dragged to the worst stores by people who don't have any sense of color management. Pointed questions about what kinds of things I like. The awkward moments in a back room with paper and tape.
On the good side I have a few days off of work to get work done around my place. Re-load drivers. Work on the next certification. Play, er, run some test apps for my system. Make sure my roomie hasn't annoyed the broadband provider lately.
Christian holidays seem so hard to handle. Especially christmas.

American holidays are always so weird. They seem to be the self centered part of our culture. We don't have many "U.S. Only" holidays, so I think people try to make up for it by making sure they do things as culturally specific as possible.
Now that you've pointed it out, I believe that Christmas is the only Christian holiday I celebrate. I don't go in for Easter, Lent, or any of the other crazy goings on.
