Our tree (2006)

Yes…Christmas is less than a month away, but geez, there’s still plenty of time. The store fliers, the online ads, the catalogs…they’re ALL trying to whip up a plateful of panic. The cover of nearly every catalog screams (in their boldest “scream font”) “THERE’S STILL TIME,” implying that there isn’t. But there is. So let’s all calm down.

Know what I also hate? The TV ads that try to make you think that getting a luxury car (or having one on your “wish list”) is as normal as getting…oh…a new sweater. A Mercedes E350 with a big red bow and a happily gasping spouse? Does that really happen? Apparently, as I’ve heard two such Mercedes ads in the last ten minutes.

Silly me…looking forward to getting books…and maybe a sweater.
