Tough Night on the Job

I'm working Christmas Eve, and it's been a pretty arduous day. I mean, look what I have to put up with here in my office:




This being Christmas Eve, I gave Ginger a bowl of milk after her usual half-can of catfood. She's been a pretty naughty cat, but she's cute and hilarious, so nobody gets mad at her.

This being Christmas Eve, I had to listen to my favorite song about the evening, in accordance with the prophecy. As far as traditional Christmas carols go, I'd have to say that I unironically love O Holy Night, and can think of no better version to post than that of the recently departed Jim Nabors:




Work, work, work, isn't it onerous?

I want to stop in, say hello, and thank you for you and your blog. I worked out at the local shelter today, and your Ginger popped into my mind while I cleaned kitty boxes. I thought I should let you know how much I enjoy being able to open up this page every morning, and see your great posts. I hope your holiday is bright!

I think it's a worthy companion piece... it's the song sung by the son of the couple depicted in 'Fairytale'.

Thanks, Ali, she's a cherished cat, well-loved by dozens of us two-legs. Thanks for your support, and merry Christmas.
