Christmas Time Is Here Again

Merry Christmas to all my readers. If you don't celebrate Christmas, that's fine - please take my offering in the spirit it is intended.
Or, there's this:
Now, I refer you to my first Christmas entry. It still holds true today.
Then, of course, there's my favorite Mark Evanier Christmas story. You never know just who you may meet, do ya?
Also from Mark's blog comes this musical interlude. Heh.
Not your cup of Christmas tea (or eggnog)? Try this one, then.
Monday, I got an invite to Dave Kern's place for Christmas Eve. Dave's wife is recovering from an illness, but insisted on cooking for friends and family. I evidently fit into both categories...which tells you that their taste in friends and family is dubious at best.
Since my previous plan was laundry and Rankin-Bass classics, I accepted. Let's face it - when you're single, anybody's home cooking is better than yours. Thankfully, Angie is a wonderful cook even when she's under the weather.
So, once work was over, I drove to their home. We watched the movie Swing Vote (which was better than I thought) and ate Angie's home-made lasagna (which was as delicious as I remembered). Dave's son is back from his second tour of Iraq, and he brought along his wife and child. Dave's two other daughters and several other friends attended, so it was a houseful. I bowed out at 1030pm, despite being asked by several people (including Angie!) to stay until midnight for present opening. However, a drive to Escondido this morning meant I had to cut my visit short - I wanted to get some rest in case the Thanksgiving nightmare turned out to be a re-run.
Since this IS Christmas, CRACKED.com puts forth this list of Eight Old School Toys That Got Badass Makeovers. I don't think I ever had any of these.
Okay. I need to get some sleep, since I have a drive in the morning.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Be seeing you.
