Frank’s away for a few days, taking a well-deserved rest. Promoting a book is hard work!
Harvey … well you just never know. He stays busy and doesn’t check in here as much as we’d like.
SpaceMonkey? With Frank not around for a few days, he won’t be checking in and correcting Frank’s spelling. He’s a busy guy, has kids, and this time of year is busy for normal people, much less for Cosmic Simians.
And, of course, we haven’t seen hide nor hair of the others for a while. Around here, anyway.
Me? I’m traveling this weekend, spending Christmas with my son. First time in years we’ve spent Christmas together.
What’s all this got to do with anything? Well, it kept me from beginning a post like this:
We’ve all got better things to do than deal with you, so entertain yourselves. But, in the spirit of Christmas, be nice, be charitable, and share with others.
Share your favorite blogs, news items, stories, thoughts, and such with others. Maybe even things that would be great Christmas gifts for others. (Keep it nice if it’s for a Republican presidential candidate; reserve any venom for the other side. For this post, anyway.)
Maybe list things that you’d like to give the president (you dont’ have to be so nice there; we do have an agenda here, after all). Like a wedgie. Or a brain.
Or, gift ideas for others. Use your imagination.
If you want to be all nice and syrupy and give honest, heart-felt greetings, you can. But, there are two opportunities for that: there’s a Christmas Eve post tonight (“A Visit from St. Nicholas”) and a Christmas morning post (Luke 2:1-14). Those are already scheduled to appear, at 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM, respectively. But, if you can’t wait until then, go ahead here.
Give the gift of … well, whatever it is you call it.
