    there is a rule wherever I live... no christmas decorations until after my birthday (12/10)... I actually don't give a shit about my birthday, it's just great leverage to postpone holiday crap.

    I try to enforce this rule, too. And for the very much the same reason. I can't handle Christmas stuff hitting as early as it does. A couple weeks of it is plenty for me.

    Those of us who make gifts have to start Christmasing earlier than the tenth unless we want a merry embolism for Christmas.

    make your gifts while listening to normal music and in the ordinary decor of your own home and we won't have a problem cowboy.

    Around about now every year, when the tacky neon commerciality of the season is at it's most depressing and frenzied heights, I think it's important to take a moment to remind ourselves what's most important about this time of year, which is that I no longer work in a toy shop.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

    Thanks! I started making my cards on Sunday. No blisters, but I do have a hot-glue gun burn.

    I'm super in the spirit this year. I think I must be trying to make up for the last couple of years of not doing anything at all.

    so my boyfriend asked me to come over on my lunch break to hang out for a bit. before i left, he insisted upon giving me one of my christmas presents. what's funny is that it is the exact same thing i'm getting him! well, his won't be so girly, but he already has a camelbak, but it is a "summer" one and doesn't hold a snowboard. he wants one that holds a board, so i'm getting him one of those. the one he got me holds a board too. and it has a little zipper pouch in the arm to hold the spout thingy. i love it!!!!!!!



    oh, and here's me decorating i'll have to post the decorated apt. pics whenever i find time to take them.

    My ex always did the decorating, plus she had all these Christmas specials and movies she would play every weekend...by the 10th or 15th, I would get the spirit by osmosis.

    This year, my Clausometer is shockingly low. My roommates put up a Christmas tree and lit it, but I haven't bothered to get out the little box of my ornaments that I barely remembered to rescue out of my ex's ridiculous collection.

    However, this morning, I went to a retirement home and helped hand out Christmas cookies and such with my business referral group. A couple of guys brought their kids and they sang and gave homemade cards to the residents. It was simultaneously heartwarming and depressing. I'm planning on leaving this planet by age 80.

    EDIT- If it gets too bad, I'm going to have to pull this out...

    I was going to put this in the DIY thread, but I think this might be a wider audience. Some of the things are really hokey, but a few of them are pretty neat. I like the string wreath a lot.

    This really should be in the confessions thread, but I'm going to pay 30 bucks and walk 3 blocks from the house tomorrow to go see Love Actually at Arclight. The damm DVD is right next to my nightstand.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I confess that I love Love Actually. I used to not be ashamed of that, but HandBanana posted an article the other day that deconstructs it completely. It really is a ridiculous piece of crap. However, it still makes me want to spend Christmas in London.

    I've never seen Love Actually, but I have spent Christmas in London. It really is like being transported into a movie.

    You're making the assumption that I've viewed a movie where Dudley Moore dressed like an elf.

    Dudley Moore WAS an elf. It's a ridiculous pile of 80s crap. Of course I've seen it 20 times.

    OMG. That is hilarious.


    (I also really hate the Christmas Shoe song. Also, the Hippopotamus song. And, I heard a song this morning called "Santa's Christmas Donkey".... Contemporary Christmas music in general just sucks. Even though I'm not at all religiously inclined, I'll take the old Christmas hymns over that crap any day.)

    I hate all Christmas songs that are either sung by children or end with a children's chorus backing the singer. Gloria Estefan's "Christmas Through Your Eyes" (or something like that) comes to mind.
