Holiday sneers

I saw christmas stuff yesterday while in the mall getting a gift for my niece's 3rd birthday and the new (squee) Beastie Boys CD for myself.


I so wish I could skip the whole thing (well OK -keep the lights and cocoa and fires and shortbread and peppermints and turkey). I' d love to tell everyone to not get me anything and I won't get them anything and we'll all just hang out together (...and set up a few lights and have a fire and eat come turkey with cocoa and shortbread and peppermints.) I love christmas lights and the smell of the tree, and the *idea* of christmas, but I"m so busy and so tired right now that the thought of all the commercialism and greed just makes me sigh. I just want a few days free to snuggle with my love and cook some tasty food and watch the snow fall.

It was the first snowfall of the year yesterday which has brought this all on. Fall has been long and orange and wonderful and I had hopes that it might just extend indefinitely on my behalf.
No such luck I'm afraid.
I'm good, but I'm not that good :)

Must be off - it's election day in the province so I have to fit that in on the way home and try and sit down to a bit more math for my thesis proposal.
And perhaps a mug of cocoa...
