Not gonna get into it

There will be no changing minds. There will be no effort to broaden (name excluded)'s perspective. Every constituent has the right to construe his/her own opinion. I will not attempt to debate a topic based on mere personal opinion. It is not within my civility that I suggest “right” alternatives. I will not seek to modify the nature of (NE)’s judgments. I will not be offended by words.

Christmas, isn’t it wonderful?

I love Santa. I adore family. I cherish my friends…… by god, I love Christmas time. Every year it gets just a little sweeter. The Homily on Christmas Eve was notably eloquent, nearly restoring my faith in Catholicism completely. My roommate’s holiday wasn’t as decadent as she anticipated; it was an absolute jubilation at first read . I was all but reduced to tears at mass, as I caught a glimpse of my older brothers fingers wrapped comfortably around my father’s warm hand as we recited the Our Father. My grandmother called me a wino after becoming aware of my newfound affection for the taste of a late Merlot or Chardonnay. I finally have a grip on the original Nintendo; complete with gold plated Zelda and Mario Bros. My closest and most coveted friends sound as if all had a splendid Christmas season. Two of my young cousins are near marriage. Two aunts are currently expecting; one is predicting two bundles of joy, at 48. And all is well in the LaDuke household.

I am definitely content with my life at this moment.
