A Christmas Crisis

Sometimes, Gentle Reader, that certain holiday magic is just missing. I’ve been searching for it, waiting for it to strike, but it just doesn’t seem to be happening. Personally, I celebrate Yule and Christmas; they’re both practically here and it may as well be Flag Day for all I care.


I’d actually be *more* excited for Flag Day.

This is due to be my last holiday season in the States for a while, as well. Next year, if my crazy scheme works out, I should be able to spend Christmas with Ex-Husband in Munich, assuming I don’t spectacularly fail and have to return home, and assuming that his Girlfriend allows it. Maman is also concerned that she won’t make it through her surgery this winter; we’re both desperate to make what might be our last holiday together a good one.

Cocktail Parties

I’ve been wracking my brain since I finished the Blogiversary Extravaganza, trying to figure out where this blog is going, in the future. I thought I could just toss some festive holiday posts out there until I figured it out, covering my indecision up with a sprig of holly. Without that je ne sais quoi that the Christmas magic brings, I’m a little at a loss.


I don’t think this is quite what’s missing.

Well, not only that, but I’m under a bit of a time constraint today – I only have a few minutes to bang out a post for you today – I’m due up in Seattle to explore the more haunted parts of the undercity today. I think that I can faithfully promise some better posts than this, this week, but until then you’ll have to be content with a sort of nameless longing for that good old Christmas spirit.

I guess we’ve come full circle, Gentle Reader.

About Ty DeLyte

Madame DeLyte has suffered a grave disappointment - YET AGAIN - and still believes that freedom, beauty, and truth are what's valuable, rather than vulgar cash. He'd add love to that list - but, well, what can he say about love?
