I was surprised how few people had their decorations up today when I took Syd for a walk after dark. I suppose they were all busy fighting like crazed animals for "doorbuster" bargains on televisions and waffle makers and whatever the fuck else they're buying for themselves. Fair enough. I expect decorations to go up tomorrow.
Don't these people realize the season is short this year? Thanksgiving is LATE. Get on it people! I'm putting my lights up tomorrow - I worked today so I have an excuse for not doing it today. I really like the lights this time of year. They make a difference on these short dark days.
But the other decorations... yikes. Take above rifle toting snowman, for instance. We passed a house with this exact decoration today. Because what says Christmas more than a snowman set on shooting something to death? Maybe he's just heading out to the Black Friday sales.
Nobody, nobody will get between him and that cheap off-brand tablet that won't be compatible with any of the apps people actually want to use. NOBODY!
