Merry Christmas, Kittens

I love Christmas Break. I really do.

You know, some high school students get out of school for the holidays and just sort of slump over like those fainting goats. Others take expensive trips and go skiing and wha wha wha wha. But I have a simple break, while at the same time a very productive one.

I wake up at 6 every morning and bike 15 miles to the nearest gym. I eat healthy, get exercise, write loads of poetry, and I speed read. Just in the past week I've already read Dante's Inferno, Milton's Paradise Lost, and a number of Shakespearean plays. I organize my room, then the rest of the house, and I garden. I feed the poor, pick up trash, and my smile ends wars. There's just no stopping me when I'm in my good, Christmas Break mood.

Then when school starts again I turn into a vegetable

But I'm enjoying myself. Like I said, we have a pretty simple Christmas. Right now I'm celebrating by eating a lot of mini-pretzels and listening to She&Him's fantastic Christmas album. Zooey Deschanel's rendition of "Silver Bells" is so pure it makes me blush.

I'm going to conclude this post with something that I'm sure will surprise none of you: a picture of a kitten in a Santa Claus hat.

Frohe Weihnachten!

Since I live so far away from school now, I have to leave my house a 6:15. And my school starts at 8:05.


I like your kitten.

I can't tell if you are kidding. Or, are you? No? Possibly?
I mean, are you serious?

Ah, the joys of being a literal person.. Who slept for twelve hours last night... -Now, the joys of insomnia.
-I am apparently a literal insomniac.
*ahem* bitch you ain't making me wake up at six. I went to bed at five you mothafucka.

Six? Really?! I am one of those people who use the break as an excuse to sleep until eleven and then get beaten with a spoon by their parents.
...I mean, what?
Question for you: is this blog not really a poetry blog anymore? It seems as if it used to be your "artsy" blog that had poetry, art, etc., but now it's more of a Nerd Archives-y narrative thing. Just asking. :)
You're my favorite Christopher. Happy holidays.
