Christmas lights:
I think you're pretty. And silly. Pretty silly. Is there some unspoken cult you all join when you are in storage?

"Hey guys. We're not being used. Katie thinks that she can just put us in a box and we'll wait for her?" 
"Are we going to stand for this?!"
"Let's commit mass suicide! That'll show her!"

It's really depressing seeing the fatalities piling up. It's a Christmas light grave yard; a nightmare before Christmas! (HA! So cheesy, but I couldn't help it!)

I always feel really bad for the poor strands that chicken out halfway through. You plug them in and only half of the lights still work. They wimped out and now they are paralyzed from the middle down. I just hope that all of the successful ones went first so that they didn't lose face. 

And hey thanks to the four who stood up to peer pressure and said no to suicide. You guys are my heroes. I am glad you decided to stick around to grace me with your beauty.

P.S. Don't worry. I'm not prejudiced. I still used the paralyzed strands on my tree. Mine is an equal opportunity Christmas tree. 

Sleep Schedule,
Why are you so whacky? I want to be a normal person. I want to wake up in the morning and go to bed at night. I don't want to wake up at 10pm and go to sleep three hours past noon. That's so silly. We should figure this out and fast.

Dear body,
I do not know if you are aware of this, but you are going to be ten pounds smaller by Christmas. I am beginning to wonder if you got the memo because you're not cooperating with this goal. I mean, I appreciate the small drops you've been giving me, but I need some drastic, lypo-esque results. Let's get on this. 

I love how great you are and how much everyone who is lucky enough to get one of you will love you. It's almost guaranteed that people are going to pull the "this is the best present ever" face. So for that I thank you. However, you are taking an age and a half to complete. Christmas is only 17 days away and there is still so much left to do. If you could be just a teensy tiny bit cooperative for the next little while, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch.

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts on my last post. They all meant a lot to me. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful girls reading my blog. Thank you!
Much love!

I hope all of that works out for you, Katie. I'm really proud of you, I hope you know that.

I like your blog and your writing style. Keep up the great work!

Also, my captcha for this comment was ENDOR, which makes me geek out a bit.

No problem!

And agreed on the presents thing. I made the horrid decision to knit my boyfriend a scarf and it is taking forever. Luckily my best friend is getting gloves, so it won't take half as long.

My presents are cooperating this year either.. they need to get on the ball... My poor lights aren't even coming out of their boxes this year, so they have all died of starvation by next year,, oh well.. :)
