Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or Happy Whatever-You-Celebrate!
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year. I have so many ideas just swirling around in my head for new blog posts, but this holiday season has been so busy and I can barely keep up with doing Scene it on Friday’s. I’m playing Mary in our Christmas Eve play at my church tonight and I’m super excited about that. I have a really long monologue and a dance so I’m hoping I perform it all without a hitch and don’t forget anything. It’s so much easier to memorize lines when there is dialogue as it’s more intuitive knowing what to say next.
Of course, I hope everyone gets at least one Star Wars gift for Christmas! A Christmas with no Star Wars gifts is a failed Christmas. Teehee, not really, but it’s always fun to receive them. Sometimes people don’t get me any because they call it “dangerous territory” and they’re afraid of getting me a gift I may already have. I say hogwash to that…get me as many Star Wars gifts as possible!
I’m taking all next week off of work for the first time ever. Usually I work during the Christmas week, only because it’s relaxing and I can catch up on projects. However, this year our whole team is working Christmas week (that never happens!) and I had to get rid of some PTO days, so I thought, “Why not? A nice little staycation isn’t a bad idea.” And so here I am. Enjoying sleeping in and the holiday festivities.
What about you guys? Anything exciting planned for the holidays? So far, we have not had a white Christmas, but I’m still crossing my fingers! We had a bit of snow this weekend, but not enough to stick around…
By the way, I still haven’t seen the Star Wars Holiday Special. I know I should, but I can’t bring myself to watch this “atrocity” yet. I have to be properly ready for it. Especially as so many of my friends told me to not bother with it. And yet, and yet, I feel like I must watch it! How can I be a Star Wars fan and not see this dismal production? Maybe next year I’ll bring myself around to watch it – I should put it on my 2013 New Year Resolutions, lol.
