Merry Christmas '05
Well I just wanted to wish all my friends and family and unknown internet readers a very Merry Christmas. I know that this year has been tough for many so if you stop and think about it, chances are that the simple things you have in life put you well above the millions in poverty, homeless or with broken families today. And even though this day isn't different from others, it's a good day for reflection, whether religious or not.
Well I'm terribly sick at home, but it's a nice home with loving family. I couldn't ask for more.

so ta put xmas as “da day” (ta reflect), seems rather arbitrary, no? a la NY’s resolutions…

Not really. Even though I agree that people should reflect on a daily basis, I know that in reality they don’t. So an honest effort on a holiday seems pretty logical. Well at least I personally think that’s the purpose of a holiday. I’m not saying that Christmas should be the single day for reflection, but it’s probably a good oppertunity. … Yes, the concept of “change” via New Years resolutions is arbritrary, given that positive change really should be done as soon as possible but that seems like an entirely different point.
