December 24.... it IS Christmas Eve

Wrapping paper chez Joey
"On call" for Christmas this year.... OK.   But, on call for 5 days over the holidays.... oh sweet Lord.  This holiday season had the potential to completely suck!
Fortunately, Santa was very accommodating, and Christmas came a bit early for this little schizophrenic elf.
From cocktail parties at my house.... suidical Christmas trees and broken ornaments, 

Ruh roh!!!

Dammit. has certainly been a Christmas to remember!

Yes, the tree IS back in the upright position, bolted to the wall, and a Jonathan Adler poodle is on suicide watch.

As you might imagine, a massage was necessary after THAT little incident.  The Umstead in Cary, NC, was amazing, and they had live flowers in their Christmas trees.  {I DID have a bit of tree envy.  Just don't tell Santa.}  Hopefully, their trees went thru a full psychiatric evaluation prior to being decorated.  (Tee hee)
Real amaryllis wired into the trees at the Umstead Hotel and Spa

Pepper berries and pine cones at the Umstead

We even had Piglet, the office's version of Elf on the Shelf, as a stripper and having a spa day!  LOL

It was only then that I realized that the office staff really loved me.  My Christmas gift from Piglet was.........
"Jack Ass Red" wine.  Jack ass, huh?   Hmmmph! 
Actually, I laughed out loud.

Despite the "on call" aggravation and my initial concern that I was in Ho Ho Hell, this Christmas has been absolutely fantastic.... thanks to friends, family, and a fun staff at the office.  And, I haven't even mentioned the drag queens, dinner parties, shopping excursions, new friends {I just need to remember that there is a fine line between admiration and becoming a stalker! ha}, 'dirty Santa' gift exchange, and Christmas traditions with BESTest!

So, have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.  Mine has certainly been memorable!  See you next year.
