|Putting up the Christmas lights at El Corte Inglés|
But what if I don't feel like thinking about Christmas yet?
No, I'm not going to.
And I say to you, you people over at El Corte Inglés...you, with your lights at the beginning of November...I refuse to think about Christmas.
That said, I turn on the T.V.
Schwarzenegger. Good. I like Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger's not Christmassy.
Hey, wait a minute! This isn't "I'll be back" Schwarzenegger. This is Schwarzenegger running all over town on Christmas Eve trying to buy his kid a sold out toy. It's "Jingle All The Way". Ugh! Santas, elves, kids that say only the lame kids don't get whatever toy happens to be all the rage this season...
I look for a magazine or something to read while my kids watch Swarzeneger's desperate capers.
This is what I see...
|Just the first of many that I'll find stuffed in my mailbox in the next few days.|
And they've already marked what they want. Princess V has even written on the cover: V=Vio. The whole catalog is full of "V"s. And she tells me that Catgirl has marked a few things as well. Yeah, Catgirl may be fifteen, and too old to ask for candy on Halloween, but she still looks at the toy catalogs. This year's thing...an electronic keyboard. Just what we need around here!
Looks like there's no escape. Okay, okay, you guys over at El Corte Inglés, you win. Christmas season is here.
But you still can't make me shop...at least not yet.
