Happy Merry Happy Happy


As I was crawling under my couch today to get out the front door I had a realization: I am not in a good mood. I have not been in a good mood for over a week. Upon having this little epiphany I decided that being a Bad News Bear was no longer acceptable. So, I turned my frown upside down and have been a barrel of cheer all morning long. Errr, or something like that.

At least, I mean, I've been smiling at people all morning. Even when three different people barged into my office bellowing about problems with the copy machine (without the slightest hint of a "please" or "thank you for not being an idiot and being able to fix my idiotic problems"), I simply gave them my most serene smile and said, "Sure! No problem! I'll be right in to press the Clear button so that you can make your copies."

And when the woman in the next office over asked me what I thought of her Winter Wonderland bedazzled sweater that she got off the 75% clearance rack at Macy's? Well I was all grins. I was practically made of grins. I praised her bargain hunting skills to the hilt. Why? Because I am tired of being the Christmas Grinch. My heart is not two sizes too small!

I can prove it: last night I spent hours putting lights and decorations up, wrapping presents, and cleaning so that the place would at least look pretty, even without a place to sit and heat that's probably going to cost me the equivalent of entire Texas oil field. See?! I am so in the Christmas spirit right now it's practically giving me a seizure!

As a sign of my extreme goodwill, I am wishing for you all to get your shopping done quickly and painlessly, that you all get what you most want and not something so bad you will need to immediately regift to your co-worker, and that you too experience the joys of Christmas cheer during this holiday season. Merry Xmas to all and to all a good day!

Even though I don't *know* you know you. I'm glad your frown is now upside down....even if it's fake, eventually it'll be a real smile.

As for me, I want the original bedazzler! That way Macy's ain't got nothing on me

You've already wrapped presents? I'm considering just giving everyone the shopping bag they came in.

Also: considering re-gifting last years' presents at the same party I got them from. Is this wrong?

I think it's pretty effed up that oil is so expensive I consider turning my thermostat above 62 degrees a "gift to myself."

It's a lot easier to be in the Christmas spirit when you bring it on yourself instead of having it shoved down your throat by the crazed retailers of the world.

Regifting at the same party seems to be coming up in conversation quite a lot lately. Is it wrong? Weeell... let's just say it's not right, per se. Is it funny? Oh, hell yes.

I've actually turned off all the vents to the heating except the bedroom and the bathroom- I refuse to be cold while sleeping or while taking a shower.
