Ok, I'll gladly admit it : I love Christmas. Not (just) because there're basketball games all day and that I get a ton of stuff, but mainly because there's a general warm feel to it. A warm feeling made even crispier by the fact that it's my first day off in ages (I pretty much work 7 days a week in december) that helps me enjoy even more the Smurf records we listen to religiously with my parents, and that hasn't changed in 30 years.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves, Christmas is right around the corner and knocking at our doors, but it's not there yet. There's still shopping to be made for selfish people who think 'is the season to be receivin', carols to be rehearsed (we don't have christmas carols here. I think I'm grateful) and turkeys to be baked (we're not a big turkey nation either).
To help me wait 'till next week, Julie from A cracked bat sent a very nice greetings card along with a little something inside it, just like my grandmother does, sending me canadian dollars I just store away since forever, because you never know when canadian dollars can come in handy. Julie not being my grandmother (she's neither Canadian nor nearly in the right age range), she was awesomely generous enough to selflessly send me this great card of one of my PC. Turns out I'm also a big Smoltz fan (that 90s rotation for the Braves...), which makes it twice more enjoyable.
Christmas + blogging community + general awesomeness does spell Connections, so this card is perfectly fitting.
Thanks a lot for the card and the card. One will end up in a top loader, and the other one on my fridge. I don't know which yet, though.
