Personal growth is hard when you leave no room (time) for it.

Heard this one on #KEXP earlier today.

Santa is an Atheist — Casey McKinnon

Early this year, he thought he'd take a course
I'm talkin' about Saint Nick, of course
Well, he went to college and had some fun

And signed up for Physics 101

He learned of quarks and quasars and photons too

The big bang theory that created me and you
He read a Hawking book that said "God had no course
in creating our dear universe"

Now Santa is an atheist
He found the Christ in mas just didn't exist

How can he continue to compile his list?
Oh, Santa is an atheist

At first old Nick was seemingly confused
So he did some math to see if it could be proved
He thought hard and worried 'til he realized

That Christmas didn't need to be deified

So Santa is an atheist

He found the Christ in mas just didn't exist
He hoped his wife and elves would get the gist
'Cause Santa is an atheist

But with a few more calculations, poor Santa disproved himself!

Oh, Santa was an atheist
Though I'm pretty sure he did never exist
May be nice to pretend, but I have to insist

That Santa was an atheist

The moral of the story is good and clear

You don't have to be a theist to spread some cheer
There may not be a god, but at least we got a tree
The log channel, eggnog, and you and me.

. @clover and I are sick for #Christmas this year. She has the chills and is in bed now, while my head feels really off, I keep needing to run to the toilet, and I have a really runny and sneezy nose. We're likely going to miss joining everyone for the big dinner tonight. :(

It really sucks because we made a really nice mac and cheese bake for the dinner. Grated the cheese by hand, made the roux-based sauce from scratch, and everything! :'(

. @clover and I ended up having a simple, cozy dinner at home:

  • Baked chicken, rolls, and apple pie from our grocery store
  • Fries from a local Five Guys
  • Our homemade mac and cheese
  • Manhattens mixed by her

Who remembers #Christmas versions of major computer and video games?
