just hear those sleigh bells ringing...

It's that time of year again. The holidays are upon us. Not only did a couple of radio stations around here start playing Christmas music 2 weeks ago (or earlier I think), but now my mom wants me to go to Wal-Mart Friday morning for her. Friday as in Hell Day and Wal-Mart as in Satan's Lair. And when and why you ask? 4-9 am for a television that's on sale. 4 am. On my day off. On the day after a holiday that is pretty much centered around eating and drinking and being thankful. Well, one thing I'm thankful for is that I don't have to get up early the next day. But, in the spirit of not having to listen to her complain about it, I'll go. I meant that to say "in the spirit of the season." Really I did.
In other news, a warm fire, Frank Sinatra, Norah Jones, and big glasses of wine could cause me to lapse into total winter hibernation.

Tonight is....are you ready??....Charlie Brown night




I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday and finds at least one thing to be thankful for.

Are Frank and Norah dueting, or do you have on two CDs at once? One for each ear maybe.

No bargain in the world is worth Walmart at 4am on black friday.

I'm a huge fan of the Mariah Carrey Christmas album and of guys in the subway who play Jingle Bells on Saxaphones.

I'm thankful that I don't have to get up at 4:00 a.m. to go with my mother to Walmart. You should really be sleeping in on Friday.

Anyway, have a great Thanksgiving!!

Just drink through until 4 am. Wal-Mart that early on black Friday would be an awesome experience while shit housed. Good times! Happy Thanksgiving and good luck.

4 am on the day after T-giving? And WAL-mart? You are a brave, brave soul and i hope your mother is thankful for you. I am considering getting up that early to hit one of the sales in my neighborhood as well - not to do any actual shopping, though. Instead, I want to take pictures of the other lunatics who have done the same.

Happy Thanksgiving, country roads.

I think Snoopy looks smug in that picture. What does he have to be so proud of? Is that WOODSTOCK on that plate?!?
