Happy Festivus!


From closer to the North Pole than any of you suckers.

I really shouldn’t write this blog, because I’m only 1/3 way through writing my 2014 blog, but seeing all the Christmas posts today has put me in such a holiday spirit! Also, for some reason I’m still sitting in my cubicle, with only 4 of us in the office, so there will not be much work today. Who knows, maybe I’ll also get that 2014 Goaty post out!

I'll give you a pole to decorate. 

I was originally going to write this post tomorrow as I’m sitting around with Ashleigh and the cats, but I somehow doubt that there will be much activity around here tomorrow. And she may not be entirely stoked about me spending the morning blogging. For the first time in my life, I’m not spending Christmas with my whole family. My sister is engaged now and is going to spend her holidays with her fiancé’s family, and my parents decided that they are leaving our icy wonderland for Florida at noon on Christmas day, so there was not much point in making the 5 hour trip to go and see them for a morning. All of the extended family live around them as well, so it’s a no go on seeing pretty much anyone.

We’ll still Skype and everything on Christmas morning, but it’s definitely going to be a different year for me. Time to start creating our own traditions with my fiancée and cats! I somehow feel like the cats are going to open gifts before I get a chance to…but if they do I’ll eat their presents from their stocking. That’s right. I’ll eat cat treats to make a point. Self-serving narcissistic pampered ass felines. God I love them.

Are cats supposed to sleep like this?                      You have displeased your cat overlord.

So that is why I’m so stoked that I have this new amazing extended family to spend my holidays with; with one mother, several fathers, a handful of sisters, and more brothers than I can legitimately count. I’m really glad to be spending my first Christmas ever with all of you on Destructoid! It’s been a great time for me on here so far, and I’m always so jazzed up every time I read blogs and get to spend time chatting with all of you. From helping me through some rough times, to talking about our favourite videogames, and making fun of my videogame collector’s edition addiction (say that 5 times fast), I couldn’t ask for more! It’s like being on speed all the time. You should seriously be in my head.

I’ve been racking my brain the past week about something awesome that I could give to the C-Blogs community for the holidays, but I unfortunately haven’t had time to stretch my creative muscles lately. So until that time, my gift to you will be my continued presence on the site (retail value $3.82 Canadian. That’s like $3 American, FYI). Also, this picture of the side of a Christmas bag I got from my parents last week. It’s *cough* supposed to be a reindeer arm…and a snowflake…I’m pretty sure it’s Phil; or at least part of him.

Gives a new meaning to the phrase "Dickbag"

I won’t go into discussing my games here, because I obviously have to save that for my Goaty blog. But don’t you worry, I’ll be giving you all my Goaty soon. All over your monitors.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and most of all, Happy Festivus (which was actually yesterday) Destructoid!  I think next year I’ll glue people’s faces onto Christmas bulbs and make a Destructree. Oh man, I’m punny.  

Game Merrily!
