2006-12-26 : Merry Zmas
Who else here has read World War Z? It's really good. Meg gave it to me Saturday morning and I finished it Sunday night. It reminds me that 28 Days Later is one of my favorite movies, too.
Friday night was our annual all-night Solstice shindig. It was exactly right for me this year - mellow, relatively few guests, crashing for some sleep as soon as the sky got light.
In the wee hours I played canasta with Serena and Emily, and Serena hosed us bad. I misplayed a hand as badly as I can imagine anyone ever misplaying a hand - to the tune of minus one hundred and fifty points, if you can believe it. Teach ME not to sleep. I love that game.
After that, I listened intently and contributed a little to Serena, Meg and Nokiko's conversation about mothering with and without men in your life. I was flattered. I was especially pleased when Serena said that she expects that her baby will throw up on me occasionally -
Ha! Funny story. Back in the olden days, one of the times Meg knew I was a keeper was when she got really sick and yarfed all over me and I was unfazed. "Not the first time I've been thrown up on," I said. "You're sick, I don't mind."
After solstice, Sunday night, it was to Meg's mom's church for Christmas Eve service. Meg's mom is the minister of a UU church a bit east of here, and she's facing some of the same lame shit that Minister John did. Will she find a new congregation to minister to? Is there a chance, one single chance in hell, that it won't just be all the same all over again? Outlook doubtful. Anyway her Christmas Eve service was fine, with the singing and the 'Twas the Night. Meg sang in the choir.
I sat in the back pew and bounced Tovey on my knee and drew a funny cartoon of Zombie Jesus. "Flesh... blood..."
Put the x back in xmas, that's me.
