Finest Worksong

I’m spending the morning writing the final paragraphs of my last big project for 2006. Then I get to relax, enjoy the Christmas cookies by the mailboxes, and skate through my last seven working days of 2006. Sweet!

I have literally worked my ass off the last few months. A misuse of “literally,” maybe? Not at all. I’ve dropped two sizes since September, without really trying. It was a much-needed loss, too, since I chocolate-croissanted my way through the year I grieved for my dad.

The Christmas social season kicks off for me tonight. I’m thrilled to have plans every night through Christmas. Let’s just hope I don’t put that heavy workload back on my ass.

Happy Christmas, dear readers!

Today’s Christmas Playlist

Elvis Presley: Merry Christmas Baby
Jackson 5: Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
R.E.M.: Good King Wenceslas
Pete Yorn: Do They Know It’s Christmas?
The Ramones: Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)
El Vez: Feliz Navidad
The Singing Dogs: Jingle Bells

Congrats on the ass reduction. Don't work too hard. I'm in the middle of my last business day of 2006 right f*cking now, and it is sweeeet.

2006, what a shitty year at work.

You get two weeks at home with your hot wife and adorable girls? You lucky dog. I'd better see long, deep posts and lots of pix of the girls with their Christmas haul.

Merry Christmas Beth!

I too have just about worked my ass off recently, but it's now time to relax a bit. And party.

Have a fabulous holiday, Beth.

Wow! 2 sizes! I'm envious but I don't want the stress that came with that!
You are a busy gal. Have fun!

I love Kenny Loggins, Celebrate Me Home!

Merry Christmas!

I've got 4 more work days before a much deserved time out. The Singing Dogs Beth? You're way serious about this whole thing aren't you? I love the 'Happy Christmas' more than the Merry one so Happy to you too.

That's funny, because I've been gaining weight. for some reason, I've fallen back into an old routine of eating handfuls of M&Ms whilstr watching the ol' boob tube. I think I've gone through 10 pounds of M&Ms over the last few weeks. While I'm falling back into bad habits, I guess it's time to go back on the old speed diet and start smoking again. Ha!

Glad you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

PS - i finally made that new post I was talking about.

We have Sirius at home and I swear the Xmas channel plays that Eagle's song twice an hour. I'm at my wits end. But I love Elvis' Xmas music. Except for the gospel stuff.
