Top Five Friday: Christmas Insanity - Laugh or You'll Cry



We have now left Reason and Sanity Junction.
Next stop, Looneyville.

In December, I am continuing (barely) to participate in the Two Pages-a-Day writing challenge.  And trying desperately to get in a holiday mood.


T
he best of intentions.  That’s what I had.  I wasn’t going to let the holidays get away from me this year.  I even sat down and made a list and checked it twice, and sent out my first batch of Christmas cards the first week of December.

I was on a roll.

And then I fell off the roll and it rolled over me.

Le sigh.

So I powered through the rest of my mailing list, signed, licked, and stamped like a boss (or Santa on crack) and now I’m looking at the clock and thinking: “Where the heck did the morning go?!  I still have X, Y, and Z to get done!”

Such are the holidays.

Honestly, I don’t know why.  I think perhaps it’s the stress of it all.  That and poor planning on my part plus a hearty helping of the blahs and the bah humbugs this year.

And since I know many of you are also struggling this year, my Top Five list today is all about making you laugh, if only for a moment.

 And last but not least:


And now I’m off to brave the Orcs, er, holiday shoppers, and spend some quality time with friends, and one sexy dwarf and dragon.

Holidays getting you down?  It’s almost here and almost over!
