Get presents, and relax. Imma get some of my friends gifts, and some family some gifts. Just relax, sleep in, learn about computers, it's a hobby for me. Maybe try to learn more about building a website. I wanna chill with some friends too, and maybe talk to them about starting a small computer business. I don't know!. I wanna watch some movies, and sleep some more, and eat a lot of unhealthy food too.

Merry Christmas to all! Here's something you may find amusing - the Texas version (Spanglish) of "The Night Before Christmas". :) This appeared in a newspaper column by columnist Mercedes Olivera in the Dallas Morning News back in the 1980's.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through LA CASA,
Not a creature was stirring. I wondered, "QUÉ PASA?"

I was hanging the stockings with MUCHO CUIDADO,
In hopes that old Santa would feel OBLIGADO,

To bring all the children, both BUENOS Y MALOS,
A nice batch of DULCES and other REGALOS.

My brothers and I went to sleep in our CAMAS,
Some in long underwear, some in PIYAMAS.

When out in the yard there arose such a GRITO,
That I jumped to my feet like a frightened CABRITO.

I ran to the window and looked AFUERA,
And who in the world do you think QUIÉN ERA?

St. Nick in a sleigh and a big SOMBRERO
Came dashing along like a little BOMBERO,

And pulling his sleigh, instead of VENADOS,
Were eight little BURROS, approaching VOLADOS.

I watched as they came, and this fat little HOMBRE
Was shouting and whistling, and calling by NOMBRE:


Then standing erect, with his hands on his PECHO,
He flew to the top of our very own TECHO.

With his round little belly like a bowl of JALEA,
He struggled to squeeze down our old CHIMENEA.

Then huffing and puffing, and a little CANSADO,
He picked up a bag that looked so PESADO.

He filled all the stockings with lovely REGALOS,
For none of the NIÑOS had been very MALOS.

Then chuckling aloud, seeming very CONTENTO,
He turned like a flash and was gone like the VIENTO.

And I heard him exclaim, and this is VERDAD,
"Merry Christmas A TODOS.....FELIZ NAVIDAD!"
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they ain't.
