despite the rant earlier, i feel i am changing. growing older and wiser. not growing UP exactly. don’t think that will ever happen, but still…
take tomorrow. tomorrow i will be doing TWO things i have never done in 46 years.
1. participate in secret santa.
2. wear a xmas jumper.
and the odd thing is, i’m kind of looking forward to it.
don’t get me wrong, as The Enemy will tell you, i LOVE xmas. i just don’t DO xmas until there is xmas in the day.
i HATE xmas shopping (avarice at its worst) i HATE writing xmas cards (a waste of money) i ABHOR forced joviality in the workplace/anywhere (don’t tell me how to be happy)
i swear, i ain’t a grinch. ask The Teen! ask The Parental Unit….
but this year, i have sat and written some cards.
The Enemy* has bought a secret santa gift.
and The Enemy* has also bought me a snowman sweater, complete with a sticky out carrot and a floppy scarf.
we’re also in the process of making TWO yule logs for the team buffet tomorrow.
i still draw the line at singing xmas carols though.
wish me luck
*i draw the line at venturing out into the mad crowds.
