Recently while perusing failbook.com, I ran across this picture and had to pause. I’d like to think I’d save the child, but then what would I have to blog about? As luck would have it, camels are herbivores, so he’ll probably just give him a hair swirly and move on. Besides, this is one of those epic pics that just doesn’t get any better! You know the one. That pic of you taken when you were two years old and you faceplant in a mud puddle? Or the one taken when you were five and decided to play dress up with your mother’s makeup and clothes? Or better yet, the pic your best-friend-forever took of you when you left the ladies room at the bar and your skirt was tucked into your panty hose? Ok, ok, alcohol may have been involved in the last one. But you know the pics, all those little missteps and embarrassing moments that somehow always end up caught on picture. Those pictures that always seem to be shown over and over through the years and they never seem to lose their laugh appeal. The point is, we all have them, so own them. I think when we love ourselves enough to laugh at ourselves, we have truly grown up. If we spent half the time making fun of things we’ve done instead of making fun of what others are doing, the world would be a more peaceful place! So free it up this holiday and take a moment, and laugh. I hope you will be happy you did. As for the child, well, I’d probably be guilty of taking the pic. No, honestly? I’m kind of clumsy, I’d probably find my head in the camels mouth.
I know! I know! I said no blog until after the New Year! But when I took a look at the new hairs from Dura called “Boy and girl 39” I just had to shoot it! Well that and the fact my parents are driving me crazy. I hope your are having an amazing holiday, eating, drinking, being merry and if your like my little dragon friend, spending a day gifting yourself with anything your heart desires. It’s Christmas, shouldn’t you give the best gift to your best friend? Yourself. Have fun and I can’t wait to be back to see you all!

Reblog: I wanted to reblog this because I feel it is important to me. Well, as important as a silly Cao can be. I want my last two blogs of the year to attempt to say what is in my heart. And this is, after all, my Christmas card to each of you for 2012. I hope you like it. What a happy year I have had because of all of you! As I leave here, I am filled with so many thoughts, so much happiness really. I adore and appreciate each and every one of you, you are amazing, supportive, kind, and oh so wonderful! I write just “stuff,” I was going to say crap, but I should be nice, even to myself, in the spirit of the holiday. You all bring me such a huge smile daily because you support me, some hopefully even “get” me. I am thankful even for the anonymous readers who peek in every once in a while and then wander off to their own devices. There are no words to express the honor I feel that for some reason, that day, you peeked! Life is good. I hope yours is as well. But always, lets remember to include those less fortunate than ourselves. Even if all we can afford to spare is an extra big smile and a kind word. Thank you for an amazing roller coaster of a year everyone. Wheee!
This is my “grown up Christmas Wish.” This Christmas let your heart shine a little brighter, be a little more open to possibility. Christmas is not a time nor a season but a state of mind. Cherish peace and goodwill, look to others with a little more forgiveness, and feel the joy of the season with the heart of a child. Be glad, be hopeful and feel the good of the world spiritually. Because there is nothing quite so poignantly sad than to wake up Christmas day and not be a child, soften your view and embrace the season as a child. I hope you wake up in wonder and joy for all that surrounds you. That is the little wish I have for each and every one of you. Namaste.
