It's Around This Time of Year That I Actually Start to Miss You People

And by "this time of year," I mean, "when I'm drunk." How 'bout that eggnog, huh? Give it up, everyone! Woot!

But also, Christmas. I received this as an early Christmas present; what more could a girl want? Well, a video card that'd do it justice, for one. But there, let's not be nitpicky.

I'd like to tell you all about the gameplay, but I can't. I can't because mostly what I do with this game is load 'er up and then stare at the main menu while the theme plays. The theme is (and you will right-click and choose "Save As," or Pixy will kill you) this.

Nice stuff, no?

Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukah! Peace on earth, good will to men.

Want some eggnog?

Are you back or just teasing us? I'd take either. Good to see you, Ilyka. Happy Holidays. No thanks on the eggnog. Can't stand the stuff.

you do realize that you've ruined my Ilyka Damen catchphrase, don't ya?

Happy Holidays, Ilyka! Glad to see you're back-ish.

Hey peeps. Rob, good call on the eggnog. Turns out that shit has calories! Looks like someone, someone who's not very bright, just earned herself extra minutes on the treadmill today.

Mac, what catchphrase?

Ratan: I miss your blog. Not that I don't understand, of course. Not blogging turns out to free up enormous quantities of time with which to things that are actually fun for a change.

OMFG! Happy holidays to me, you're HERE! You're HERE!!! Don't tease us with quarterly posting, OK?

Ilyka!!!!I've missed you so much, I'm thrilled that you're back.

Don't worry about the calories in the eggnog. It's only here once a year and it's worth the splurge. Yummy!

Huh, for some reason I linked that love note back to Beth.

Well - Hi Beth!

I am SOOOOOOO jealous! I've got the Civilization jones in a bad way. It's probably better that I don't get it though. Divorces around the holidays are so messy. ;-)

Wow, it's great to see you posting again! I'm glad I kept your feed in my Bloglines. Merry Christmas to you! :-)

Oh, there you are! I knew Ilyka back when, even before the reform schools days ...

Oh, damn you . . . I'm never living down the reform school thing, am I?

Hey, go read Conversations with my Father so you can rate my George impersonation! I'm hoping you'll find it fairly accurate. Remember the year he had to ask Trudy when my birthday was?

wow, you came out to play! Missed you!

See, now this is why I continue to click obsessively on dead blogs. Welcome back, you.
