Happy (Office?) Holidays

23 Dec

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

For those of you off work, enjoy the time spent with loved ones and family members. This includes furry family as well I suppose.*

I’ll keep this one short and sweet. I can’t bring myself to be too much of a smartass for Christmas, which really kind of limits my writing.

So here’s to the Holidays! Especially those of awkwardly blended religions or cultures. There’s something charming about a Christmakkuh tree or, in our case Brötchen and Glühwein mixed with stockings and Alvin and the Chipmunks – The Christmas Song.

I hope Santa brings you many neon-colored post-its and highlights with which to decorate your desk and memos! What? Really? Not what you asked for?

*I naively wrapped a bone and placed it under the tree, thinking in the spirit of Christmas the dog would leave it alone until the 25th. At least he had the decency to rip it to shreds while we were sleeping and didn’t touch any of the other presents. It’s ok though, I already have payback planned for ruining his ill-planned Christmas surprise. Little does he know there’s a sweater under there as well with his name on it…

    Yup, I like the mixing too. The hubby has happily adopted Rotkohl and Spekulatius while I am getting used to stockings and turkey. Plus holding on to some dear holiday memories:

    A very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, too. Looking forward to more shark tales.

    I’m not really a driven businessman, but a driven artist. I never think about money. Beautiful things generate income.
    The herd instinct among forecasters makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
