I Believe...

...that we tend to hope for the best, assume the worst and watch a lot of movies and television to avoid thinking of either.

...that holidays seem to be more about getting time off and partying than actually meditating on the meaning of the holidays. When scheduling around your impending hangover becomes an issue...


...that for someone who is non-salaried, the holidays can mean less work, thus less money at a time when spending more money is expected. Not much of a holiday.

...that for improvisation to be successful, one needs to be emotionally invested in an outcome.

...that President Obama has jumped the shark in trying to appease the GOP by extending the Bush Tax rates, but what he doesn't realize is that republicans still aren't going to be fans of his show. And current fans are going to stop caring.

...that the reason I look a gift horse in the mouth is because I'm not tall enough to look the horse in the eye.

I think you forgot to add:

I believe that trying to schedule a rehearsal on New Year's Day is similar to trying to schedule a rehearsal on Christmas Day or Thanksgiving. Hungover or not, it's just not going to happen.

I disagree. Look at a show calendar. There are shows on all those days in Chicago. Someone somewhere is having a rehearsal and more likely on the 1st than T-Day and X-mas. I have done rehearsals on January 1st and may end up doing it this year because I have a tech on the 2nd at noon.
