smith-rubio family xmas update, 8th annual edition

It’s that time again, when everyone’s thoughts turn to family and joy and camaraderie. It’s a long tradition for families to send out xmas mailings to their friends in far-flung places, updating them on the events of the past year. This is a bit redundant for anyone who has a blog … if you want to know what I’ve been doing, the evidence is right here. Still, we have our own traditions at the Online Life Corral, so, here we go.


Yes, it’s the poster child for the Xmas Update, Spot! For what is xmas without pets? Sadly, Spot has become incontinent over the years … the food you see him eating in the picture will become a turd on the living room floor by nightfall.

This is the part of the Update where I tell you what everyone in our family has done over the past year. Oops, out of time!

It’s become Yet Another Xmas Tradition over the last few years to end these posts with a song. So here goes … something that reminds me of the most enjoyable night I spent during 2009:

So what I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm havin’ more fun
And now that we’re done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
