Father Time

I got to see Santa this weekend. Who knew he would be at the Marriot in Atlanta, Georgia? (Who knew I would be at the Marriot in Atlanta, Georgia since I live only 90 minutes away.) I quickly stepped aside to chat with Mr. Claus while my friend waited in line for her Starbuck caramel apple cider. Mmmm...

Oh yeah, back to me and Santa. Since I always have the well being of others on my mind, I asked for world peace...naturally. He didn't say anything in response. I guess my humility left him speechless. Something like that anyway.

But, I've had the whole weekend to rethink my request. Santa, I want more time. Time to finish the applications for grad school within my self inflicted timeline; time to get all the supplies for the church Christmas party this weekend; time to buy an outfit for the company Christmas party next weekend; time to shop for presents to give to my family members; time to go to the gym ~ well, that's a bit greedy of me, I'll stop there. Time. That's all I want. Time.

So if my blog seems a bit irregular compared to usual, blame it on Santa.

Time, I think we all could use more of that, good thinking.
He looks pretty happy to see you though, so I don't think you're on the naughty list, or maybe that's why he's so happy to see you!

I hope Santa doesn't skip my house this year because you got to him first and he is working on world peace and altering the timing of the universe...

90 minutes to ATL? Really? Yeah, seems like a stretch. Mapquest and google maps say 80 min, and I have never taken as long as they say. Their estimates are alwasy way over the top. So now my main question is, can we believe anything you've wrote about. I feel so mislead.

Mojo: lol, I'm on the good list. Nice hat by the way.

Amie: I reminded him to stop by your house. No worries.

TheDeanInc: Brother, you clearly have never traveled to Atlanta on a Friday afternoon. It takes at least 2 hours if you are lucky. So yes, you can in fact, believe what I write about. Gosh, "can't wait" till you come home for Christmas break. ;o)

Don't be surprised if you end up with Thyme.

Such a simple request - time! Geez, if I'd known Santa gave that as a gift I'd have been asking for it for years...

I want time to nap.

Think Santa would give me a little more time too?

Doesn't Jessie Spano start taking Caffeine pills in Saved By The Bell because she wanted more time. Then she slept through the performance of her girl group Hot Sunday.

When she was yelling at Zack she kept saying - "More Time, I want More Time. I can sing, Zack, I'm So Excited, I'm so excited, I'm so . . . scared!"

Do you really want more time? That is what Jessie Spano wanted and look what happened to her!

Is it just me, or does Santa look a bit tired? Suck it up, big guy...you only work one night of the year!
