The thoughts that were thunk and the goings on of my life.

"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport.

"General opinion is starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed. I don't see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy but it's always there. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

"When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge, they were all messages of love.

"lf you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."
-Opening of 'Love Actually'

This year is going to be a really unique as it's the first year that I've been married and spent a Christmas with the lady. So far it's been really fun with the tree, decorations, first christmas ornaments, home-made wreaths, hand-dipped chocolate covered pretzels, egg nog, presents under the tree, the wifey wrapping presents for me, warm house with a dreary outside...

All of these things are starting to make up for all the decoration-less, lame Christmaces that I spent pre-Mrs. Otis. I'm really lucky where I am this year and I wish you all a Merry Christmas as you look and see the love that is all around you this season.
