The worst part about the end of the Holidays (and a Monday Funny)
Been away for the holiday and LTT for a few weeks? Remember there are auto-playing ads that you can STOP from annoying you by hitting mute/the volume button once, after which you’ll never hear them again
Do you know what the worst part about the end of the holidays is? No longer having an excuse to not be productive. (Coming in at a close second is: Sobering Up after 3 weeks of being constantly tispy; The cookies are all stale; Accepting the fact that eating 8 cookies at day for 3 weeks made you fat; Having to stand in long lines to return the horrific gifts you were given; The month old Christmas Tree causes bleeding when you attempt to drag it down 4 sets of stairs to the trash; Having to clean & reorganize your closet now that you have extra things to put in them; You feel really guilty about throwing out your friends & families cute (and over priced) cards/pictures of their kids)
And boy did I EVER enjoy that excuse this holiday! Don’t get me wrong, I was SUPER productive- I have to be with a job that depends on me [gotta sell those hot tubs y’all!] plus a part time job that has quickly taken up more and more of my time & attention. But if something didn’t have to get done this past month, like I’d still get paid (or not paid) if it didn’t happen, or no one would die or get sick or be sad or kill me, then I didn’t do it. I embraced the “It’s the Holidays” excuse BIG TIME and just STOPPED doing things that needed to get done.
Yes, Twilight, that includes you. I don’t even remember tweeting “Merry Christmas” “Happy Hanukkah” or “Happy New Years” this year. Even Mr. CHOICE tweeted you all a Happy New Years message! And I’d like to tell you that today, on January 1, 2012, as I’m writing this, things are going to be different. I’m starting 2012 off RIGHT and with a BANG with some new/amazing/awesome/EPIC* news or blog post, but I’m not. I barely even have an excuse because despite finishing off a bottle of wine plus 1/2 bottle of champagne last night, I feel fine today. I was even up for brunch at 9am. And while I technically could say “It’s the Holidays” because it is January 1st, and all, and I don’t have off tomorrow like the rest of the world, the reality is I’m just being lazy & want to get in my PJs early & watch a movie/TV/peruse blogs that didn’t use the “holiday” excuse/pin things on pinterest/eat more cookies/play with my cats/fall asleep <—- any of those excuses work.
I will leave you, however, with a small Monday Funny that was sent to us by LTT reader, Lindsay, who came across this news item that included a picture of a girl who can only be Kristen Stewart’s inbred cousin:
Although attacking a man with a bowl of spaghetti totally sounds like something that could have happened between Kristen & Rob or any one of the Britpack guys, really, during a drunken New Years Eve.
Happy New Year. I promise to be a good blogger soon (as soon as I don’t think of another excuse)
*crap… I totally promised myself I wasn’t saying EPIC in 2012. Already failed. UGH
