The Christmas Holiday Spirit

Well Christmas has come and gone but the holiday spirit is still in my household, especially since I have the holidays off of work.  Not that work would be too much trouble as the daycare only seems to get about 20 children in over the holidays.  And for the most part, all they want to do is play with their new Christmas toys, no matter how much encouragement is given to do the arts and crafts provided.  My holidays have been and will be spent listening to large quantities of music from my iTunes collection.  So far it has been mainly 80's based music ranging from Duran Duran, The Cure, Marillion, Prince, Tears for Fears, Simple Minds, Billy Idol, Kate Bush etc.  I don't know what it is but the holiday season seems to bring out the urge to listen to this style of crisp, clean and brightly produced music.

Also been watching the 6th season of Dexter which my wife bought me, and which I bought her.  Looks like one of us will need to return a copy.

I've decided I don't need a gym my wife bought me the mother of all comic books.  The Infinite Crisis Omnibus at about 1397 pages, 3.5 inches thick, it's all I need to keep in shape just lifting it to read.

As you can see it's a monster, but it'll be worth the read.

Of course the most prized thing about the holidays is getting to spend time with my wife as we parallel play on each of our own computers.  She's busy looking at youtube videos of "Who's Line is it Anyways" (laughing hysterically) while I do my regular Facebook/Twitter browsing.  I think we'll be watching more Dexter as soon as my massive iTunes playlist ends.  It still has some 80's Genesis, and Queen to go.

All the best this Holiday Season and I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Years.
