Death Surrounds Us

Happy friggin' holidays.

Sorry if I'm not in the holiday-spirit, but life kind of...sucks.

My grandfather's cat, Charlie, was hit by a car last night. This would be terrible, no matter what. But the problem is that this is the third cat (or, gods, has it been more?) he's lost in a little under two years - cats that he was very close to. My sister and my grandfather are in a lot of pain right now, and there's nothing I can do. And I don't feel very Christmasey.

I come into work only to find out a co-worker's 40-something year old son was killed in a car accident last night. The man had two small children of his own (8 and 13). I feel for the family, and those little girls - all of whom this time of year will is ruined for the rest of their lives. And I don't feel very Christmasey.

We're supposed to get off early at work today, and I have lots to still do - mail things, buy presents, blah blah blah. But my boss took off so I have to stay. I figured, oh well, it'll be nice and quiet - a laid back day, right? But I haven't stopped since I came in and I can't seem to get caught up. And I don't feel very Christmasey.

Bah humbug and bugger it all.

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thank you!

    I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that's both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues
    with your blog. It seems like some of the written text on your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet
    browser because I've had this happen before.
    Cheers

    First of all I would like to say terrific
    blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if
    you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I've had difficulty clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
