This shopping thing is going to kill me.
We had a plan, the husband and I. My mother was going to watch the three year old while we, armed with a handy, if not hastily made list, were going to head to the local mall around dinner time and bang out our shopping in two hours. Well, the shopping that absolutely required us to go into a mall, anyway.
The plan was to go at 7 pm. And then, the unforseen problem occured.
Why would they close the mall at 7pm? Could someone PLEASE explain that to me? Isn’t Christmas like two weeks away or something? And they’re always whining about lost revenues.
Now the plan has been pushed back to mid-week. Obviously, I am heartbroken, as evidenced by the fact that I am still in pajamas.
But we did decorate the tree today. And I did download some great Christmas music from Bitchalicious – the Ozzy/Jessica Simpson Winter Wonderland song is great. But I’m still not in the mood, as evidenced by the quiz below (did you really think I’d go longer than an entry before taking one?). Maybe I need snow. Yes, snow would help. And a publishing contract.
Maybe I need to write Santa a nice long list…
You are ‘Christmas Time is Here, by Golly!’, by Tom
Lehrer. Hmm, you really don’t like Christmas,
do you? From the moment they start playing
carols in the shops in October to the
appearance of the first Easter Eggs in the
shops on New Years Eve, the rampant hypocrisy
of the Christmas spirit sets your teeth on
edge. You know just how many family fights
start over Christmas dinner, how many people
are injured in the Boxing Day sales, and how
few people actually find Christmas even
remotely merry. You liked Scrooge far better
before those ghosts got to him, and you are
only doing this quiz because you are bored at
work and anything is better than listening to
everyone else discuss their Christmas shopping.
Still, it is two days off work, which does
count for something… Enjoy the break.
