It's Christmas Eve. I'm moist. I always get a bit depressed around the holidays. Maybe it's the caroles on the radio, or thoughts of family or childhood. Loved ones I've lost. Or maybe it's knowing that in 48 hours all the Christmas magic will be reduced to sale items and gift returns and leftover duck. In an attempt to get myself into a holiday mood I have been looking through pictures of times I felt joy. All the pictures had one thing in common. I was among friends. So my resolution for 2009 is to spend as much time with friends as I possibly can. You have all been warned.
