First, to the people leaving the nasty comments that were deleted, get a life. There were cookies, cakes, and candy all over work yesterday and I didn't have a single bite. So take that because I bet you wouldn't fare as well. :) Now you need to get going because I received a phone call and your village is missing its idiot. :)

Christmas is in full swing here with listeners sending us tons of crappy "food." Cakes and cookies are everywhere, in every single department and office. I'm staying away from all sugar so I won't have any. One bite is the kiss of death.

To answer the question about what a Vicki Box is: It started as a tradition on a cat forum I used to frequent. A woman named Vicki used to send out boxes to people who needed a little pick-me-up. It became a Secret Santa sort of thing. People sign up and are assigned another person to give to. You don't know who is giving you your box until the box arrives. Each person posts a bio so you know a little about them, and of course we all have the common bond of loving and owning cats. This year I received a big box, and am sending out two small boxes. Since my family either gives me nothing or gives me something I can't use, the Vicki box is the only way I know I'll get something cool and surprising for Christmas. So even though I rarely go to that cat forum anymore, I make sure to take a spin through and make sure my name is on the list.

Ok, today was gym day. I did 30 minutes of weight training and 1 hour of cardio on the elliptical. I walked into work from the train station. I am wiped!

Tomorrow is laundry.

I got off work about 11:30 last night. Lisa didn't go to the concert because he had to take her father to the hospital. Bereket filled in for her and gave me a ride home.

do a google search for the Fat Loss Troubleshooter and you'll find her old site.

Good luck and God bless you in your efforts.

Merrry Christmas to a good and wonderful friend and to each who come here. You are the gift that each day, month, year and Christmas I appreciate from our Father. I have many like you and the wealth of friendship is better than any material thing or food in the world. True friends are worth their weight in any and everything good.

Look for the Gold in the hearts of your friends and look how rich each of us really are. Makes leather jackets, cars, land, gadgets, gold and silver, food look kinda lacking in that which really brings us joy. Physical things are necessary, but not key.

For what is gaining the whole world and having no friend or heart to share it. It is dull, lifeless and empty.

Christmas is not about what you do and the gifts you receive or give. It is more about what is within you with your motivations. It is a holiday of the heart of Spirit, not flesh and material things, trees or decorations. It is not about receiving ever. But about God reaching out to us who have hated Him or do. The one truly Good person is the One true God.

He is Jesus of Nazareth of the Nation of Israel past and present. Their Messiah and God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If they would look, they would see this truth.

Thank you Father for the Christ you celebrate. Happy tomb day. It was empty then and will be shown on the last day where the body went.
