Okay, show of hands. Who else woke up this morning and realized that tomorrow was Christmas Eve? Anyone ? Anyone?
Somehow, the lovely serene feeling of presents bought and wrapped and tree bedecked in living room gave way to OMG I STILL HAVE STUFF ON MY "TO DO BEFORE CHRISTMAS" LIST. How did that happen?
Among the things still on the list for which I was sure I had another week to accomplish was, write an outstanding Christmas themed post for Sarcasmo's Corner.
- Bake cookies
- Lose 10 pounds
- Buy matching Christmas outfits for Sarcas-family.
- Write outstanding Christmas themed post for Sarcasmo's Corner
- World peace
I tend to over reach every year.
When all else fails I as usual turn to Sarcasmo for some holiday musings. or, as some might consider it, reruns. While searching for the penultimate of her yuletide posts, I came across this Original Sarcasmo. Originally posted December 23, 2003, it is as you would most likely have guessed, about pirates. If you thought it was going to be about Christmas you are either new to the Corner, or you have not been paying very close attention.
Have a wonderful holiday.
Sarcasmo's corner is hoping that you will include us among your new year's resolutions. Send any links you think Sarcasmo would have posted, or any Sarcasmo related stories you want to share, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or post them in the comment section. And thanks for hanging in with us for another year. It means more than we can say.
I never quite know what to post on this day. It is not a day to be heralded, but all the same, it cannot go by unacknowledged. And in many ways, it is just a day.
It is a day to remember. A day to kiss the frog .
It is a day to reflect on what was, and a day to wonder what might have been.
It is a day, like every day I think, to hold her in your heart.
It is a good day, as really is any day, to go to Starbucks and hoist a brew in her honor.
I heard a quote attributed to Ghandi this morning, that I thought was appropriate.
"There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are you will always be in my heart"
And then I thought, seriously, can I bring everybody down just a little bit more, thereby ensuring that they never, ever want to visit the Corner again?
So I perused Sarcasmo's posts1 for a quote she favored. I found this Original Sarcasmo. I dare you to read it and not smile as she takes us on a tour of what was going on in her head at that very moment. Oh, and the quote? It's not in there. You have to get all the way to the last footnote2 and follow the hyperlink to the quote, which was her very first blog post on Sarcasmo's Corner, June 21, 2002.
1.It's a lot like going through old photos. You remember this one and that one, and you keep on going long after you find the one you are looking for.
2. Her footnotes are the best, aren't they?
