Christmas in September

You know how sometimes you get in moods where you’re really into something in particular? My roommate said that during one summer, she had peanut butter sandwiches every day. I don’t think she even really eats peanut butter. Once, I wore “Nightmare Before Christmas” clothes all week because I could. One time I was itching to sew something so I made a six foot by six foot bean bag chair out of old jeans. It’s pretty durable, and has plenty of pockets for remotes and dog treats. Sometimes I get a wild hair and want to go to the gym. Yeah. That doesn’t happen as much as it should.

I’ve been in a Christmas mood all week. I can’t explain it. . . I mean, I don’t want to forget Halloween, I love Halloween! I’m all about costumes and candy. Any time you can wear pleather, black fake nails, bite marks, and a wig and still be accepted in respectable society is a wonderful thing. Besides, we have some stellar Halloween decorations. And Thanksgiving? Sitting around the house, eating olives and pickles off the relish tray while watching the Macy’s day parade in your pajamas and waiting for the turkey? Hello, nothing beats that. But I just have been all about the Christmas recently.

I have well over a day’s worth of Christmas music on my iTunes and have been enjoying that. I went to Blockbuster on Tuesday and rented several Christmas flicks for the week (the Blockbuster employee that helped me out had quite the odd expression on her face when I walked out with a stack of Holiday movies but when I wished her a Merry Christmas upon leaving, she smiled). I’ve even been working on some illustrations for my holiday cards. I’ll post one when I finish. I hope this mood goes away . . . But just for a month or 2. . . They’re not even selling eggnog yet. Mmm. Eggnog.

I know how you feel ecxept my wife won't let me listen to it yet. I feel guilty sometimes because I sneek it. I have never felt bad about listening to christmas music, I guess I don't feel bad just scared when she comes into the room and roles her eyes. She wants to postpone Christmas music until Halloween, as for me. I take the long way home, if you know what I am saying.
