Okay, phew, I'm back. And just in time, since my phone's inbox, with a capacity of 100 text messages, has reached a dangerously high 96 text messages. And that's with me deleting half the ones I received this past week. The holidays are a big time for texting.

With that said, let's travel back nine days to Christmas...

Merry Christmas all the best Marci a Honzi.

Such a simple request from Santa. Truly a sign of a less material time.

A Hawaiian Christmas song. I continue on the long road to multi-language fluency.

iPod nanos have overtaken religion as the True Meaning of Christmas.

If everyone abided by this practice, then there would be a much better balance in gift-giving, and none of us would wind up in those awkward situations where one of our friends boughts us an iPod nano while we bought them like a nice pair of white cotton socks.

FWD: Squeeeeeeeeeeze! U've just been given a christmas hug. I WANT ONE BACK! If u get 3 ur cute, 6 ur loved, 9 ur hot, 0 ur a jerk.>Sweet as pie<

I've gotten this forward a whole bunch of times before (which I guess means I am loved, or possibly even hot), but it's never had the "Christmas" modifier before. Usually it's just a non-denominational hug. Text forwards change with the times.
