There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays

OMPR will resume its normal mix of reviews, commentary, and Carrot Top on Wednesday the 28th.  Until then, I'll be spending Christmas with my family.

I urge you all to take the time to visit or call the people who matter most in your life--whoever they are--and make sure they know just how important they are to you.  A sincere, genuine "I love you" is more powerful than most people believe, and it's not said nearly often enough.  Tell those you love that you love them.  I promise, no matter how awkward the words can be (and I know, they can be awkward; I was a teenage boy too cool for sincere emotions once, too), they're not ones you'll look back upon with regret.

Merry Christmas, to you and yours.


  1. Enjoy your Christmas, Chris! Same to all you other commenters

    I just have to get through one more day of work and then I'm off for a week! Plan on snuggling up with my pig and finally catching up on some fanfiction, plus about a million other things (might even re-read the one good Tolkien book now that I've found my old copy)

  2. Have an enjoyable Christmas, Chris, and all other commenters!

    As for me, I will be flying out to spend Christmas with family in a couple of hours. Nothing quite feels like getting together with your loved ones after spending 7 months half a world away.

  3. Merry Christmas, Chris! Merry Christmas, everyone!
