I was not aware of how many “bah Humbugish” people there are in this world. I am officially in the spirit and if I answer the phones happy holidays it’s because I want to, not because some person in corporate decided that is what I should say. In my optical top ten I mentioned a prissy little man bitch, well his disposition has not changed and I only get hap out before he rudely interrupts me. These grumpy, miserable people will not kill my mood!
I have my Christmas music playing all day and that really does help block out the negativity. I did come home from work today and pull out my Ally McBeal dvds, I’m on season 2 disc 3. Christmas episodes so far have been disc 3 and this show had the best episodes around Christmas. Listening to Christmas music all day improves my mood and makes me want to watch Ally. I relate to her and she makes me laugh, who wants to be normal anyway?
Maybe it is because I don’t have a lurking cockroach, well I’m not stupid he is still lurking but he isn’t being so obvious about it. Last Christmas I was still holding my breath because I wasn’t sure what he might do. This year I am still aware but in a get a life and leave me alone kinda way.
Maybe it’s because the kids and I forged new traditions, or because I am making a conscious effort to slow down. Maybe it’s because I do believe in unicorns? Oh yeah Ally season 2 disc 3, great episode, but really Christmas is magic so why not a unicorn? Just because I have never laid eyes on one does not mean that they do not exist. Off topic, yes I know.
Maybe I just want to have myself a merry little Christmas and I don’t get why that is frowned upon? Should I be miserable and spend too much money? Should I buy meaningless presents? That is not me and since I have never made the effort to “conform” to society, I guess everybody else will just have to get over it.
If I want to say happy holidays, I will.
If I want to listen to Christmas music all day I will.
If I want to be excited because I found the perfect present I will.
If the full moon is totally messing with my libido I will deal with it.
If I choose to believe in Christmas miracles, I will.
If I want to slow down and savor every moment I will.
If I want to make too many cookies that the kids will eat before Christmas ever comes I will.
Do I even have a point? Oh yes I do, I don’t have anybody to squash my Christmas spirit. I am going to take full advantage of it and enjoy every single second of it!
