Have you entered my cash giveaway yet?

So normally it takes me a little while to get into the holiday season. In other parts of the city, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas time until the last week or so. While working downtown you notice it approaching a lot more. All of the stores have their holiday displays up and people just get in the festive mood earlier. There were even carolers at one of the train stations the other day.

To honor that holiday spirit I took my girlfriend to see the Christmas light show in the big city park here. I really wasn’t expecting much, but it was actually very well done. They have a little train that takes you through the park, all lit up by thousands of bulbs. There was music timed for specific areas of the train. At one point there was even a live performer on stilts, dressed as a reindeer. For some reason he was as John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever and was doing an appropriate dance. I didn’t quite get it, but it was amusing.

Yeah I slipped in that I have a girlfriend again. For a while now I’ve been back with my recent ex that I’ve written about previously. Things are going well with me and her. So well that she’ll be coming with me on a vacation to Mexico in January. I just regret that we had our previous problems. She’s an amazing woman that I really love :)
