Contrasts

Oh December, how fast you go, and how this pleases me! I am one of those people that fear the holidays. The amount of anxiety and stress outweighs big time the holiday cheer that is supposed to be had. Christmas shopping is a true nightmare. Not because of the city looking mostly like a colony of termites, but because… panic!  Socal functions/office christmas parties, I try to avoid them as much as I can because they make me feel sick. Family dinners are paired with migraines and worse. And New Year’s eve… I’m a mess, because as lousy as the year may or may not have been, I fear the next one more than the one I am about to finish.
So yeah, I am enjoying the RL work frenzy I am in, trying to get as much done before the holidays kick in. Loving the no nonsense business as usual atmosphere in my office and once it’s inevitable I’m going to hide out in my hole and hybernate through the end of the year. How about that? Can anyone relate?

December blues aside, SL Christmas is somewhat different. The snow doesn’t melt and is always pristine. You do not need to water the tree or fear finding needles in your carpet way into spring. Your beloved pets don’t go crazy over the blingy ornaments and make it a sport to whack them out of the poor tree and so forth and so forth. Is the party overwhelming, that little red X in the right top of your screen is your saving grace and your pixel meals will never burn, no matter how long you leave them in the oven. Ok, fact is, they do not taste well either, but hey, you can RP that they do! So yeah, throughout the years I have learned to at least appreciate SL Christmas. Not in the last place because Darla is downright Christmas obsessed, and if it were up to her, she would have the tree up all year and the stream on the sim set to  Christmas carols not later than mid June!
