Wednesday December 24th

The comic:

We've abandoned the countdown for Christmas. Prepare for glurge onset tomorrow!

She is wearing tennis shoes. Really.

This is the only time during the holiday season that I am glad I have never seen the movie. And since I've been in college, I've avoided November Christmas music.

Yes, they get annoying, but damn, I didn't realize how much I miss the traditions. Or what they were. When Hollie helped us decorate the tree, she lived down the street. Now she's a mom. In the next county.

Whoops, starting to identify with Pluggers.

But seriously, do people watch the movie more than once in one day? Really?

I'm sure their TV's too old to have a remote, so they'd have to get up to change the channel otherwise. Just switch it to a marathon of something with a part you love and collapse into a bizarrely flat-looking puddle in your chair. At least, that seems to be his plan.

*waves* I do. It's about the only Christmas movie I can stand (nope, not even Christmas Vacation). And I do love it so.

I have that special edition DVD, yet I'll go ahead and watch it a couple times on the TBS (or is it TNT? I always get the two confused) marathon. I'm one of those weird people that can read/watch/play/listen to the same thing over again and still enjoy it, but if I watched it for the whole 24 hours I probably would get sick of it.

Also, Merry Christmas, Happy חנוכה, and [culturally appropriate greeting] Kwanzaa.

I've usually heard Happy Kwanzaa and that sounds right.

Right now, I am remoteless, though I have cable. (The dorm.)

And yet, I change the channel when something comes on that I don't want to watch, no matter how bad I feel.

Though if I feel too bad and I've got headphones off, I turn them off.
