Well, it’s been a while since I posted anything on this site. Drafts galore, but posts no more! That should be my new tagline!
So we’re into the end of the year. 2012 is almost upon us, but before then, we have Christmas and the New Year to celebrate! This year, for the first time in 8 years, I am going home. Back to South Wales to celebrate the holidays – something that I am looking forward to. One thing that I am not looking forward to is flying. Don’t get me wrong – flying doesn’t scare me, but it is a pain in my ample rear end. Taking off your shoes for security – annoying but not a deal breaker. What gets me are the comfortable seats in economy. Being a larger than normal human being, they were never comfortable, but one can only assume that I will have to force my big butt into the seat that probably has its origins in some medieval torture chamber, and hope that I don’t suffer the disgrace of asking a steward(ess) for a seatbelt extender. I also feel sorry for those that are forced to sit next to me!
I did enquire about an upgrade to Business Class, just in case it was affordable. My $1000 ticket would be increased by over $4k just one way, so let’s just say that it’s not going to happen!
Other than that – well I have my Christmas shopping to complete, and I’m also trying to lose as much weight as I can before I go home. Irrespective of how much I do shed, I know that my folks aren’t going to be too happy, as I haven’t lost as much as I should have. My fault, but nonetheless, not a conversation that I am looking forward to. I’ve told my mother that I will lose weight during the 3 weeks that I am there – as they have a multi gym and an elliptical at home, I think that I can make that happen.
I’m not taking my work laptop, so this should prove to be a good vacation. I plan on taking lots of pictures as well as lots of video. Hey – it’s been 8 years – things have changed!
Anyway, that’s all for now – need to get back to work. I hope that you and your loved ones have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Given the time of year, it’s only fitting that I post a Christmas Song. I choose War is Over by John Lennon, because his legacy is one of peace.
