My holiday season was one of Unrelenting Holiday Cheer. I did my best to grant my apartment The Christmas of the Future, ripping my roommate’s mother’s collection of seasonal CDs into iTunes. I even took the time to seek out album artwork. I made the judicious decision to excise most of the Manheim Steamroller from the playlist. And the Rod Stewart Christmas Album, which, almost unbelievably, exists. Then I connected the Macbook Pro to our HD television for Maximum Holiday Magic. Wanting to ensure that the illusion remained unbroken by inappropriate wallpaper choices, I came up with a nondenominational background for the TV, above. Behold the snowman, contemplating the stand of evergreens before him. He is my winter buddy. Click to embiggen.
On an entirely different note, Facebook’s Top Friends Application and I are over. I don’t need an e-mail every time someone I barely know decides that their mood has changed, because that, people, is the human condition.
