So I'm just back from three shifts of curling and decide to veg in front of the tv for a bit and watch Law & Order. I haven't watch any of the new episodes in years and it's apparent I haven't missed much.
But that's not the thing that's traumatizing me. There's an ad on right now advertising something called WNIC - a Detroit radio station that is already playing Christmas music 24 hours a day. It's November 12. What kind of sick, demented bastard wants to listen to a single Christmas song at this time of the year, let alone 24 hours of it, day after day.
I only pray that the radio station is completely computerized. Because if there are DJs then I imagine they will be criminally insane by the time Christmas comes along.
Don't get me wrong...I like Christmas. I have no choice, really, given how much Cathy loves it. If I were a scrooge about it, I honestly wonder if we would have gotten married. But this is way too much, way too early. And you're sure sign that I'm right about this is that Cathy agrees with me.
Our rule is no Christmas music until December 1. It's the only sane thing to do, really.
