Okay this time I didn't spray my computer with tea it was water.
Sounds like an improvement...
How about lily pads?
Anyone else completely annoyed at how they rush Halloween out of stores now? I know Christmas is their big money maker and all, but for the love of Pete, some of us want some discount candy. Also, I hate Count Chocula (and friends) being a seasonal breakfast cereal now.
I was kinda of surprised; I went to CVS yesterday to look for gloves and they had all their Christmas stuff out already.
Technically it's always in the cereal isle, (at least at my grocery store), but they put it out front during October.
That actually surprises you? Most places start stocking their shelves with Christmas stuff around like October 1.
That rarely phases me. What gets my goat is when they put out the Christmas stuff just before the Halloween stuff at Target. And then the week leading up to Halloween, they push the stuff into a corner like it's clearance. But it isn't yet.
Umm...why is this a surprise? Christmas stuff was out in my area near the end of August. I hate Halloween anyways so I could really care less about that.
Yeah and it's been like this for several years now, we really ought to be used to it, lol.
I know people act like this is some big news story. I don't even remember the last time Christmas stuff was out AFTER Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving always gets the shaft when it comes to the major holidays... I think the problem is it's difficult to try to commercialize and secularize a holiday that's about... well... being thankful for what you have, and remembering those who came to this new land for freedom. Therefore, Thanksgiving has a tendency to be a very under-rated and under appreciated holiday, because there's no candy, or presents, or anything like that involved.
Yeah Thanksgiving always get the short end of the drumstick (haha). There's just not as much opportunity for merchandising (apart from the supermarket!). It doesn't help that they've pulled back on the Native American dolls out of political correctness so now all we have are the Pilgrim dolls and really who cares about them? Lol.
But you're right, bottom line it's hard to merchandise thankfulness. But perhaps that's a good thing.
That is brilliant; how true that is!
I've been out on Black Friday a couple of times. You couldn't pay me to do it again. Too many people. And Black Friday seems to do something to some people's brains. Someone even got shot at a Toys R Us a couple years ago. What kind of psychopath brings a gun to a Toys R Us?
Welcome to America.
It's not entirely a big deal really, but am I the only one who gets just a little annoyed with how people seem to get goth and emo mixed up?
I get annoyed when people mix up punk and goth >_>
How did I know Sarge would be the first to respond to that?
Separate names with a comma.
