I always have a certain level of fun creating the Christmas episodes, even when I get a touch of seasonal depression myself. Normally, I really enjoy the holidays, at least initially, but when other people around me aren't keeping up to my level of excitement, it bums me out. It figures, the one time of year I put aside most of my cynicism (most, not all) is when some people decide to get pouty. But then, as a shut-in, I don't have to deal with a lot of things other people do, so who am I to judge? As of this description writing, I'm pretty okay, chilling and playing Christmas music. Christmas is next week, so let's hope I can keep up the positive vibes.
Who am I kidding? I wouldn't be me if I couldn't bitch about something. You can enjoy the season and still have gripes. Nothing is absolute.
I really cheaped out on my opening sequence, I think, since you mostly just see the back of the, uh, me sprite. But I was almost going to do nothing but the opening credits. I wanted to tie in the end of the year to the beginning somehow, by returning to the therapy group Terry is in. Notice the Christmas decorations and Terry in festive civilian garb. I also make use of last year's special Christmas "hearth and home" background in this video, and it's one of my favorite backgrounds. It reminds me of living up North in Connecticut and the coziness of Christmas where there was a real winter outside (living in FL now is like having summer all the time, for all the good and bad that entails).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video, and I hope you enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate around this time of year, or even if you don't celebrate any. Get in the spirit and watch. Or maybe the video will get you into the spirit!
