I really REALLY LOVE the holiday season. BUT...
If I see or hear ONE MORE TOY, JEWELRY or CLOTHING COMMERCIAL I'm gonna puke or scream, I havent decided yet.
This shit has been incessant sincebefore HALLOWEEN!!! Stores are advertising they are opening at FOUR in the MORNING the day after THANKSGIVING for their CHRISTMAS sales!
For the love o' snow on a clear day in DECEMBER!
Who the FUCK gets up that early on black friday after sneaking a midnight turkey sandwich with cold stuffing, only to be busted (and then joined) by the family??? FOUR IN THE MORNING??? Who goes SHOPPING at 4am????? Those bitches in the "open-open-open" Mervyn's commercials? PA-LEEZ!!!
There were houses up the street that had holiday lights up the moment their kids got home from trick-or-treating!
I like the decorations. I have tons of them, and was really looking forward to decorating the new place this year, what with my big ol' porch and shit. I even thought about a cool place to put my tree.
EMPHASIS on the word, 'THOUGHT.'
What I really feel like doing is creating a HUGE paper mache' CAVE on said big ol' porch, eating so much turkey it sends me into a triptophan coma, and then hibernating until the New Years/President's Day/Valentine's Day hype sales bullshit is over, and everyone gets back to being as "normal" as they were before.
Seriously, I'm not bitter. I have a LOT to be thankful for this year. Family, friends, and a great job and lots of support. I just keep thinking...People used to be SO SWEET this time of year, but lately, it just seems to bring out the "mean" in them. And everything's become SO commercial. It's so so sad...If I had the money and the canned goods, I'd SO donate them, but I don't, so I can't. I just wish all these toy stores and grocery stores would step up and see society for what it really has become.
