I'm getting better at this!

Posted by Gwen |

Like a kid a few days before Thanksgiving I can't stop thinking about Christmas.  I intended to satisfy this Christmas jones by putting up the outside lights this weekend.  I anticipated I could do so using the excuse of warm weather but it wasn't warm enough for that to be believable.  Besides, I didn't shower until 4 today and then I put on pajamas.


As an alternative, and certainly easier, task I poked around looking at templates.  Before I knew it, Christmas had come to EILCC.  I don't care if it's too early, I needed a fix.  I hope you like it - pay attention to the details.

Wow. I guess if I was steadily employed, I'd be excited for time off, too, but since everyone I know is broke, Christmas really just means handshakes and dreams of better days and better lays.

hello haha narf said...

Very purty! Who doesn't love a blog with a link to Elf?

Fine. Be that way.

But- just so you know, word on the street in the North Pole is that Santa doesn't like brown-nosers named Gwen. Nope. Not at ALL.

(And, by "street", I mean a drunken bum who was really, really short and kind of looked like an elf but smelled like lysol told me, and by "North Pole" I mean the alley behind the plasma donation center- it's pretty cold back there! And, since we're on topic- how do you know any of my St. Paul bums? Are you some sort of witch or "bum whisperer"?)

This makes my head hurt- I need me some eggnog.

Too early!!

I think I speak for everyone when I say "Bravo, Gisele Jaquenod, Bravo!"

I'll be impressed when everyone on the blogroll has their own stocking. Until then, you are just a tinsel-wrapped sicko in my eyes.

I kid. But seriously? Knock it off. Tooearlytooearlytooearlytooearly

You've hardly had time to eat your way through halloween candies and already you're bringing out the Christmas decorations? You're delirious.

My goal, should I ever have my own house, is to leave every holiday decoration up all year. No messing around. Just cover some of them with a blanket if they're too loud.

Why does Santa have an eye patch? Is he a pirate? The victim of that snowball accident mom was always going on and on about? Does he just wear it to by mysterious with the ladies?

And with Thanksgiving being "late" this year, you can totally go Christmas now. I picked up my wreath today, and will be getting out the decorations tomorrow night. (And putting the Halloween ones away.)

First Christmas in my new joint, so I'm psyched!

It's Very Merry around here!

Scope: Some kid shot his out eye out with a Red Ryder BB gun.

And thanks for sticking up for me about the Christmas decor! These people are being HARSH! and fail to realize that there are only three weeks (as opposed to the usual 4) between the two holidays this year. This time last year these naysayers probably had their tree up.

KNOCK IT OFF, EVERYONE!

It is NOT too early, Gwennie... these weirdos need to realize there are basically FOUR WEEKS till the big day (which means, hel-loo? Four weeks to buy me presents, people!!). I love your Holiday Spirit... I, too, considered changing to a holiday theme on my blog...

I think you just inspired me :)

enc said...

Good for you doing whatever you like! Pajamas, Xmas templates, hooray!

Giggle Pixie said...

I LOVE it! And I'm even all bah-humbug this year. Maybe I should Christmassy-up my blog!

Nah. That would take work.

But I still love yours!

H said...

I just watched a half hour of Elf scenes on youtube. I am now officially in the holiday spirit. Bah Humbug!

Fancy Schmancy said...

Love the new theme, very nice. The picture, as usual, is awesome!

Stacie said...

I like it. *slams fist on table*

Suze said...

Look at you all Christmasy and stuff. I'm hoping that means you've already purchased and mailed out my big expensive gift. Gwen? Gwen?
