Christmas, already??? @ 10:03 am

I have to get to work on trying to decipher a spreadsheet today before I have to try to decipher the workings of my presentation I'm giving tomorrow, but I thought I'd write and say that XM's got Christmas music on now. Yes that's correct, they've resurrected the channel (not my girlfriend) Holly which plays Christmas "hits" starting today. I'm kind of sad because this replaces one of my favorite channels, but anyway. I just find it somewhat over the top that they keep moving the time back that they air that channel. Last year, it was a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, the year before that it was Thanksgiving, and this year, it's the first of November. Craziness. Don't get me wrong, I love listening to Christmas music, but this early? A day after Halloween? What's the world coming to.

Gotta get back to work. I think I'm going to leave early today so that I can get a quick nap in before my advisor comes in. We're going to go and eat dinner and then practice this mega presentation. Sure it's only thirty minutes, but it's still a pretty big deal.

More soon

I'm pretty sure that Halloween is now the official start of the Xmas season. And I like Xmas music sometimes, too, but as I get older, is seems more likely that the holidays will lead to binge drinking and depression. I think one of the advantages for people who get married at like 22 must be that they don't have a whole string of exes and old Xmas memories that come up every year.

Yeah, it does seem to be extreme that Christmas starts right near Halloween. It seems commercial and sterile in a way. It seems as if giving gifts supercedes everything else. Note to self: maybe this should be a topic for cogiation soon. About getting married early, that's probably true. I'm 28 now and am not married. I haven't even had a whole long string of exes (this is probably an advantage), I just hoped I would find the right one. I think that that wish, that longing, is what causes people who have no one sadness and depression. I am thankful that I have someone this holiday. I know that it really does annoy people who don't have anyone (before I met Holly, it would make me sick when someone would say exactly what I said to you), but I'd say not to lose hope. Someone's bound to fall for your chilli at least.

I don't have a whole long list of exes either, but there are at least 2 that I have very poignant memories of...including last Xmas.

First of all, I love Christmas. I even bought a Christmas CD at Best Buy today. That being said, I felt it was rather jacked up when I went to Wal-Mart on the night of Oct. 30 to buy Halloween candy to take to work for the next day and a guy was already moving all the Halloween candy down to 1 end of an aisle and the other end was already stocked with Christmas candy and crap. I just couldn't believe it.

Tonight I went to Wal-Mart, Nov. 2, and noticed, while standing in the frozen food aisle, that really bad Christmas music was playing.
