Christmas Shouldn't Be Special

In my quest to unseat PZ as king of the firebrands, I have acquired a Trophy (Primary) Girlfriend™.  If you’ve hung around me at any major conferences recently you’ve probably met her (she tolerates hanging around me).  Her name is Michaelyn and she’s…nice.  She’s really, really nice.  To pretty much everybody.  She makes facebook statuses like this.

As an atheist, I still love Christmas. I hope everyone stays warm and is surrounded by loved ones today. Actually, I hope that’s how all your days go. Have an especially wonderful Christmas day.  :)

Ugh…so positive!  So cheerful and pleasant.  *shudder*

I would accuse her of taking the Friends out of Friendsmas, but that would be a silly thing to say to someone who just wished happiness upon me.  She’s just wishing everybody well…that whole good will towards man thing.

And I guess I can begrudgingly get behind it.  We shouldn’t need a freaking holiday to feel the way we do today.  Loving people and telling them so, finding ways to enjoy the little things in life, we should do this all year!  More happiness in the world would rock every day.  Let’s do that in 2012.

She’s a pretty cool one.
