|Holy Sh*t! It's Christmas.|
December 2, 2004
My title refers to a rather twisted and rude holiday parody song. Of course, it fits my good and rather silly mood.
I certainly can be an extravagant, silly son of a bitch at times. Yet when I feel there is something worth doing, I do it and do it thoroughly. I usually end up feeling pretty good about it and that is certainly the case today.
Essentially, I learned that someone wanted something relatively pricey and they have had a time of it lately. I decided to order it for them and it is a plus that it is appreciated and will see good use. It was something that I might have bought myself, so it indulged my own interests as well as performed my good deed for the year. I'm feeling pretty happy with myself at the moment.
I really hate to think what I would be like if I were independently wealthy. I enjoy giving and making people happy. I'd be chucking money around hand over fist. I'd probably die penniless -- not that I would mind. What good is money when they are throwing dirt in your face? Better to spend it on people and see the happiness it can bring while you are around to enjoy it and know that it is appreciated.
