THANK YOU!! IT'S OCTOBER!! IT'S HALLOWEEN!!!!!
I saw my first Christmas tree in SEPTEMBER.
Hate that shiz.
I agree with you in principle about "Holiday Creep". It's unfortunate, however, that all the best Christmas décor and gift items get put out first, and in September/October. I'm in stores right now seeing the better stuff--often on sale--and it's difficult to pass up when you know that as they get closer to the holidays, everything will be picked over. I prefer shopping smaller stores, and they typically only get one shipment of Christmas stuff, and once it's gone--that's it. It won't be re-ordered in early December, because they're afraid of being stuck with the stuff after the holiday. So it's snatch it up now, or be stuck with lesser choices in November and December at the mass merchandisers, whose items are typically less-than-inspired designs everyone else has.
I was cleaning out the attic last week and I found an old violin and a painting. I wondered if they might be worth anything so I took then down the antique shop.
Mo - hi, I've brought this violin and painting for you to look at.
Antique shop bloke - well, you know what you've got there, don't you.
Mo - no, what.
Antique shop bloke - what you've got there is a Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.
Mo - wow !!! How much are they worth ?
Antique shop bloke - well, not much I'm afraid due to the fact that Stradivarius couldn't paint to save his life and Rembrandt made terrible violins.
I'm here all week.
Too early for Christmas Funnies...??
How about, November 5th, Funnies....??
