I've gone Beta!

Finally I've updated to the beta version of blogger. Don't know if you will notice any difference, but it is a bit cooler to use. I know it is a while since I last posted. I've written loads of posts in my head, but I never got around to typing them up. I should have scribbled them down somewhere, so I could put them up here later, but I forgot about it and now they have been neatly filed away at the back of my mind.

I'm busy getting ready for Christmas. Sometimes, in all the hustle and bustle, late nights, early mornings and busy foodless days, I wonder what it is all about. I've lost track of the real meaning of Christmas, the reason why I celebrate the great feast, and got lost in a wash of hollow (yet pleasant) commercialism. At such times, I say to myself - don't worry about presents, they aren't really important and everyone will understand. Spend time on thinking about God and the light of the world that came to us on the 25th of December. For a few moments, I fully intend to concentrate on Christmas in a spiritual sense and spread peace and joy. Then something sets me off about presents again and I plunge once more into the elf factory.

Anyway, enough of that. What about writing, I hear you cry! 7 Days in Hell is finally finished and the Christmas orders are in from I'm dying to hear what other people think (although a little nervous as well). I still hope to get Til the Moon Fails finished before the Christmas holidays (Dec 23rd), but it is playing second place to the Christmas gifts that have to be made.

i love this post. you are so right about losing the real meaning of Christmas.its not the Christmas presents that are distracting me but something FAR worse - work. it takes up all my time and energy and i hardly know my name when i get home. i am hoping to finish early next week so that i can spend time dwelling on Christmas in order to find peace and joy. I also need to do some manic shopping. Happy Christams Inky
