I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been a little slow on the blog front lately. One of the goals I have made about this blog is to never apologize for not writing, so take that. I am NOT sorry. The reason for that is because if I say “I’m sorry” it suggests that I think I’m a big deal, as if you're all waiting by your computers wringing your hands and waiting anxiously for my next post. I know better. Besides, if I was a “Big Deal” I don’t think I would look at my snot after I blow my nose, take big bites out of a block of pepper jack cheese straight from the wrapper, or Google “Celebrities named Holly” from my home computer just so I could make this stupid joke:
Also, did you know that there aren't very many celebrities named Holly? Google taught me that.
Anyway, I think I’m just tired. There’s an auto shop here in Denver that runs really dorky commercials all year long but during Christmas they run ads that just show a picture of a winter scene and play soft music with their logo in the corner. It’s their special way of giving permission to take a breather, but I like to think of it as their gift to me that I don’t have to exert the gargantuan effort to hit the “mute” button as soon as I see his red and yellow hat appear onscreen. I think I’m feeling the same way – I’m dorky all year long, and I guess I feel the need to take a breather. Not that it’s hard work to be a dork because it does come incredibly naturally. But…well, here. Just stare at this, hum along to Yanni and let me know how it goes.
