Christmas Time is Here...

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

I was bothered that my last entry was so negative and mean, so I thought I'd add a bright, cheery one on top of it.

Exactly 24 days until Christmas! I cannot believe that. Where the hell did all my time go?! It feels like just yesterday I was living in my Irvine apartment, being like ptsh i have all the time in the world to find a job, it's cool. Yeah, that's not true. Time is a-tickin' for sure.

So, come Thursday morning, all our Christmas boxes will be taken in from the garage and my house gets to be my canvas. And...ok, I'm a pretty over the top person. It may not seem like it, but to completely bastardize a line I heard in a TV show, everything I love I love too much. And Christmas is something I absolutely, totally, 100% adore. So I take care of EVERYTHING decoration and Christmas in my house. I set up the regular tree and put up the stockings and garlands and line the windows with the shimmer garland and hang the wreath and put the Christmas ribbon on various things in bathrooms to bring Christmas cheer to every room and put fake poinsettias in objects that are not for flowers (real or fake) and place the mini-wreaths on door handles and set down the Christmas floormats and the holiday tablecloth/tablerunner and
(deep breathe)
put up the M&M themed mini-tree and the non-themed mini-tree and the present-themed mini tree -- and this year I will be adding my own personal 2' mini mini penguin-themed tree -- and bake holiday cookies/sweets and coordinate all the giftings between my immediate family, my friends, and my extended families and i wrap every single gift (boxed, wrapped, sometimes double wrapped, always ribbon-ed) and write out Christmas cards to tons of people and set out the holiday figurines and conveniently place all 50+ of our Christmas CDs at the top of the CD case pile.

Seriously, if I could get a snow-machine in this house, don't even think i'd think twice about it.

It's kind of weird, because this year I was a bit lethargic about everything (I didn't even decide who I was buying gifts for until the drive over to the stores at 4am for Black Friday--usually by the beginning of November I've gotten presents bought already!), but my dad keeps insisting I put everything up and decorate soon. Usually he sits at his computer and bah-humbugs as I annoy him with all my bells and shimmers and curls. This year, he's bugging me to get a move on.

Weird.

Buuuut not complaining. I am extremely excited for Thursday when I can drown in baubles and bells!

About Me

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
