Happy first day of Advent! I already gave Albie Dog his Advent treat (video to follow), but I am saving mine until after coffee. And my nephew sent me a wonderful Advent greeting of him saying “Happy Birthday Jesus”. He’s big on birthdays right now.
Reading: Catherine Aird murder mysteries, very soothing. Considering re-reading A Christmas Carol the way I used to do every December, but probably won’t have the energy.
Watching: I saw Om Shanti Om on the big screen! At the super funky cool old theater that has a super funky audience. And we were the only ones watching OSO the way it should be watched (hooting, laughing, singing and dancing). Everyone else was Very Serious about this Important Film. White people are dumb.
Thinking: This week is TOO MUCH. Grandpa’s viewing (family only) is on Saturday, the last shipping date for Christmas is Monday and I still have to handmake a dozen presents and wrap the store bought ones, and we have the WORST Christmas lights display on the block so I need to buy more lights and fluff it up, and I have to pick up my Friend Christmas Cards and then hand deliver them, and I was gonna make a Yule Log and cookies this year and I haven’t even found recipes, and all my Christmas sweaters are in the wash so no one even knows I’m feeling festive. Also, I haven’t used my elliptical in 2 months, and I’m not doing that thing where you move the 3 kings closer every day, I am just leaving them in the manger all month like a Lazy Person. And I still have 4 boxes I haven’t unpacked, and pictures I haven’t hung, and I never EVER vacuum. And, of course, I’m not writing good DCIB posts and I haven’t watched any of the new movies or even the new trailers. AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
Listening: Christmas carols, thank goodness, do make me happy:
Okay, watching question for you! What is your favorite Christmas carol? One that makes you happy even though you HAVE TO MAKE ALL THE PRESENTS AND DECORATE AND COOK COOKIES AND EVERYTHING ELSE AND THEREFORE WIN CHRISTMAS?
