I know a lot of people don't like it when a holiday and their birthday line up, but I never minded sharing a birthday with Christmas. I was always off for it, after all, and we had plenty of food and visitors and I never wanted for presents. Things got awkward after the Chattering Order of St. Beryl started coming by when I turned twelve to see if my opinion on ending the world had changed, but they were at least always gracious about it and agreed to sing a very stirring rendition of Good King Wenceslas when I told them to pretend that they were carolers so as not to upset Mum and Dad. If there's one thing to know about Satanic nuns, they're very adaptable and their fruitcake has all sorts of things in it.
Anyway, I'm finishing up the last of my examinations this week; my entry into the school year was belated and still a little confusing but everyone's working very hard to ensure that I'm not too far behind. I was wondering if, speaking of carolers, anyone would like to join me in singing a few songs for the homes for the elderly next week? I've already spoken to a few administrators who would be happy to have some visitors. Let me know if something like this would appeal to you, and I'll sign you up.
I do suggest we avoid any references to grandmothers getting run over by reindeer, though. That seems like something the elderly could get sensitive about.
