It turns out yesterday was Wuss-out Wednesday. I fell asleep on the couch without making my blog post. I have been wanting a lot of sleep lately (cue jokes about my sorely needing beauty rest). Well, yesterday was kind of like Friday, because I am off work today, so why don’t I dash off a traditional Lame Post Friday post, with random observations and half-baked philosophy. Traditional kind of fits, too, since today is Thanksgiving.
One random observation I have been making lately is that people are putting up their Christmas decorations. I LOVE Christmas decorations! Some folks say it is too early, please can we wait till after Thanksgiving. This leads me neatly into some half-baked philosophy.
Quite frankly, I can see the point of the Please Wait crowd. I have been known to speak sternly to those that start talking about Christmas in October. “Halloween!” I beseech them, “Wait till after Halloween!”
We could go on to ponder how we got to be in such a rush, or why some of us feel the need for three months of Christmas, and how much of this is a profit making scheme of big retail. Oh, that sounds like a lot of trouble for a late post.
Anyways, I want to go running, and I believe it is not currently precipitating, so I need to get while the gettin’, as they say, is good.
