I have been meaning to put this song up for a long time. (couple weeks) It is pretty rad. If Domino's Pizza doesn't try and work this song into their next ad campaign, then I guess I must not know anything about life.
"By Hector! You're right! Christmas is right around the corner!"
-Max, who is from Australia and one of my favorite hotel guests
I'm not sure who Hector is, but Christmas is indeed around the corner. I like Christmas just fine, but I don't overlike it. Typically, I spend most of the holiday season grinching it up and doing my best to avoid Christmas music and holiday shopping until the last minute. Sunday afternoon, I was in the kitchen, wearing my new apron and cooking dinner, when I suddenly realized I was dancing to Christmas music. "What the heck?" I thought, "I must really like this stuff." And I do. So in tribute to that moment, here is the song that melted my grinch heart. There are some odd caricatures of Stevie Wonder and some inexplicable and excessive Muppets footage going on, but just roll with it. By Hector, it's Christmas.
...for something BIG.
Nope, not that.
Not that either.
Something much bigger and much better.
It involves my computer and it's imminent destruction.

This location was the scene of our most awkward shots. I was always winking because the sun was in my eyes...
Doing what we shoulda done a long time ago.
My three beautiful sisters. What happened to us dudes?
The little one, Pookie. (Nika)
Shalane, who just got back from her mission.
They r friends.
The old Red Devil himself.
We're not afraid to show that we like each other.

Here are the three reasons I have neglected the blogging world for the past five days:
Reason #1: My computer is...once again...not working.
"Wha...?" you say, "Your computer? Not working?" I know, I know, surprise of the century. Sunday night, I tried turning the thing on to check my fantasy scores and it did not turn on at all. I haven't had the time to really figure out what the problem is and I won't get the chance until later today. I can promise you this, if I can't figure out how to fix it, sledgehammer time will come. I'm not sure which one I want to happen more.
Reason #2: A crazy little thing called Thanksgiving food poisoning
One of the highlights of any Howard (my mom's side) family get togethers are my aunt Kritsana's egg rolls. She cooks at least a hundred at every family party and they are typically gone within an hour. They are delicious. They are awesome. They also should not be consumed ten at a time after sitting for two hours in your car. I spent the hours between midnight and four a.m. evacuating all egg rolls from my system. I set a new Cody Titmus record (at least in my adult life) for vomiting (twenty times, kids, twenty) and ended a two year streak of vomit-freeness since the Beto's incident of Winter '07. I didn't make matters much better by chugging VitaminWaters to get my liquids up and throwing my sugar levels way out of wack. So, if I have seemed a bit off the last few days, it is because I have been.
Reason #3: The last two weeks of school and my procrastinating heart
You can sympathize for me on being sick or having computer troubles, but don't feel bad for me on this one. I've put off projects, papers, and presentations for months and they are all coming down on me now. This is the time of year I make two or three trips to the library a day. It is the time of year I get pink eye and carpel tunnel from excess computer use. It is the time of year I am a little bit nicer to my teachers and more-studious classmates. Many times I thrive under the pressure and do great in these last few weeks. Other times, I become irritated and do funny things like, not turn in a final paper worth 30% of my grade. You just never know to expect.
Well, that is the update. If you don't hear from me in the next few days I am either stuck in the library labyrinth, mercilessly beating my computer into pieces, or lying dead in a gutter from eggrollio sugarinfectomyheadocanceritis.
