Bah... humbug! Already!
current mood: aggravated
current song: The Night Santa Went Crazy
Is it really too much to ask that stores, malls and advertisers wait until AFTER Thanksgiving is over to start will all of the Christmas shit? Want to know why so many people "hate Christmas?" Because the annoying commercials,irritating music, and snide innuendos that if you "really love _____, you'll sell a kidney to get the money to by THIS!!!" starts before Halloween!!! I mean. seriously... what 7th grader actually needs a $400 iphone? Or does your spouse really need that $50,000 Merc or do they just need a safe, reliable means of transportation? By the time Christmas gets here is it any surprise people are just fucking sick of it?
Besides... it's not like anyone actually gives a shit anymore about what this time of year is supposed to mean. It's nothing more than a gross consumer orgy and a time for over indulged yard apes to whine about how they will "just die" if they don't have the latest and greatest, cutting edge, overly expensive (ultimately useless) bullshit displayed at the mall.
Why should they care if mom and dad have been laid off for a year, the electric bill is 2 months past due, and one parent or the other has secretly harbored thoughts of having a fatal "accident" so their life insurance can save the family home from foreclosure? As long as they aren't the only spoiled brat not to have the latest X-box, or play station it's all good, right?
So yeah... here I sit, a mere 10 days before Thanksgiving and I ready I say "fuck Santa and the reindeer he rode in on" And on that note, let me leave you with one of my favorite holiday songs
