First and Foremost:
I know things have seemed really great the past few days but I can't do this. It's not you it's me. I'm just not ready for this type of commitment in my life right now. I'm sorry. It was fun while it lasted but it's over.
Second: Why do radio stations start the 24 hour playing of Christmas songs the day after Thanksgiving??? That is too early. Every year they start earlier. In high school I looked forward to the week of Christmas hearing 24 hour Christmas music. As the years roll on it's earlier and earlier. In five years time they will just start it the day after Halloween.
Furthermore: Why do radio stations think that folks want to hear this crap? They turn down the freak and turn on the Lord. Damnit..I like the freak. Turn it back up!! I can't take this!!!
Third: The Christmas hiatus. Why do I have to suffer without new Glee's until January. Aren't we over this now. Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean I want to watch shit on telly.
Fourth: Has anyone ever heard of an Elf on a Shelf??? I don't have rugrats but I heard of this on the radio this morning. I think I kind of like it. File that away for future use if procreation ever occurs. It's Gold.
If you are still scratching your head about this...look it up. Seriously. Yahoo.
Fifth: I am seriously, seriously, seriously contemplating not even putting up my Christmas tree this year. Usually I erect that beast the weekend after Thanksgiving but honestly, I'm just not feeling it. It's in a HUGE tupperware "thingie" (technical term), I have to drag it from my shed to my living room. My little cat always ends up jumping in there and creating a cluster eff' of tinsel, lights and shards of tree. Then after it's up he proceeds to hide under the bottom layer and chew on the metal/plastic tree bits...leaving bits of tree all over my floor. God forbid you walk by the tree, he will jump out, five feet in the air and try to claw your face. It's intense. He's insane.
Aside from this, I feel like Christmas will just fly by anyway, like Halloween and Thanksgiving did so whats the point? Also, the main issue at hand here is this: I'm lazy. Okay, there I said it.
Six: Christmas cards. No one sends them anymore. If they do they only write their name on it. No message. What's wrong with humanity people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seven: I hate generic/idle chit chat questions that come along with Christmas: "Hey, have you started shopping yet??"
"Hey, Are you ready for Christmas?"
And then after:
"Hey, How was your Christmas?"
You get these eight hundred and forty six times a day until mid January. Or longer.
You can't give the real answer. No one really cares..it's just idle. You give the generic, "it was nice" . I hate the generic. I think I may answer these questions with a question of my own this year: "If you were a hot dog, would you eat yourself??"
It will stun the opponent long enough for me to not talk about Christmas.
Thanks for letting me flame the fire here.
In a NON-Christmas related vent:
Eight: My desk and the copy machine face each other. This means if you make a copy you are staring at me, staring at my computer screen/working.
This doesn't mean that I have to make conversation with you. All day I am like the Walmart greeter. I need a couple of buttons of flare, a big blue smiley face smock and a grandma hairdo and I will be golden. All day it's : "Hey, Hows it going! Makin' copies huh??". If I don't smile and talk to each person I get the stare.
Their eyes burn me. It burns us master...it burrrrrrnnnnnnnssssss us...
NOTE NUMBER TWO:
This also doesn't mean that because my desk sits in front of that I know how to fix it when you Eff' it up. Nope, not a copy machine technician. I don't know what it means when it says: Error. Or page jam...or where the extra paper is, or how to change the toner. Use that lump three feet above your ass to figure it out. Gah.
Okay, deep breath...I think I feel better.
And if I didn't make it known last week. What I am thankful for is:
For the Love of Ray J part 2.
Thanks for playing. Now go back to your freakin' Christmas music.
