The First Noel, 2010

I’m home, after a long day of family, food, and flying wrapping paper. I’m tired, but satisfied. I’ve had some of both sides of Christmas: the sacred and the secular.

I hope you guys had an awesome day, and an awesome December besides. And I wanted to give you this.

I posted a story back in 2004 on my first blog. It was a retelling of the Christmas story, set in modern times. I got a lot of good feedback on it, so I’ve reposted it a few times, here and there. I think it might be time again.

I got the chance to play some Halo: Reach online yesterday. I do love me some shooty action, but playing online is always a mixed bag. There are some not-fun types out there that love nothing more than to cuss you out or – perhaps worse – scream nonsense into the mic until your ears bleed.*

Yesterday, though, I had the pleasure of playing with several people that just made my day.

In a world of griefers and sore losers, you guys stood out. Thank you for a good time. Stay awesome.

And a special thanks to Cruzona63 for the shoutout! That warmed my heart.
