    Hey, I prefer motion lights to the ones that are on all night long….

    Yeah, but I hate the ones that suddenly turn on at 1:14am.. You wonder “WHO’S OUT THERE??” :) I’ve had people try to get into my house, the lights stay on all night. Sorry.

    Att. bacon boy. I checked the strip from 2005. Thank you for the idea. That was great too. I enjoy this strip very much.

    What a weird topic for a Christmas Day strip. At a time of year when the themes of sharing and good will toward men reign, Mr. Mallett has a self-centered Frazz wallowing in solitary pleasure-seeking tinged with peevishness. So inward looking and self-satisying, and so very much at odds with the Season’s traditional motifs.

    But, hey, it’s Christmas! I’ll imagine that Frazz spends the rest of the day hugging strangers on the street and handing wads of cash to the homeless.

    The latest thing are LED street lights. They use about half the energy of high-pressure sodium vapor lights, and about a quarter of the energy used by mercury vapor lights, which are still quite commonly found in rural areas.
    The LED’s also last many times longer, often beyond 10 years.

    Among other things, Frazz is a jogger. As a former jogger, I can understand the beautiful solitude of a pre-dawn run. I can also understand his annoyance at anything that would interrupt his Christmas thoughts. I would in no way classify him as ego-centric. It’s an appropriate way for someone like Frazz to start Christmas day.

    There’s not a lot to think about; it’s all right there: His wish is that his own thoughts and heartbeats be blessed. (That is odd.) He seeks a rush that can’t be shared. He resents the other humans’ annoying lighting.

    All I’m saying is that it’s incongruous, a highly unusual choice for Christmas. New Year’s, which is more of a personal goal-individual resolution thing, would make perfect sense. (But then he wouldn’t have had yesterday’s gag.)

    I’ll make you a deal: you and swr think as much as you like and I’ll think as much as I like. And if “over-thinking” is determined by time spent, I can tell you that it hit me instantly that Mallett’s choice of message was an unusual one for Christmas. What’s more, I’m not saying it’s wrong or bad! I admire a guy who goes to such lengths to find self-fulfillment.
