Have I mentioned I hate Christmas? I didn't always hate Christmas. Of course I loved it as a kid. But at some point my feelings changed. I didn't like it but I tolerated it. Like the way you tolerate the tv shows your wife watches. You don't like them but you sit there with her watching because she's somehow happy that you've feigned interest to do something with her. I admit I do enjoy getting stuff for kids for Xmas. Especially when they are still of age to believe in Santa Claus. I think I hate Christmas because like nearly every other aspect of life its been ruined by adults and consumerism. Every day I'm subjected to Xmas music coming from the cube of my neighbor at work. The whole day. Does anyone need to listen to that much Xmas music? Other people are bringing in special holiday themed coffee mugs. Why? What was wrong with your other mug? Its good for coffee in August but not in December? Heck its not even December yet and its Xmas 24/7. If life came with a fast forward button, I'd zoom ahead to January. Hell has gotta feel a lot like the holiday season. Only warmer.

If Britney Spears dies I'll be as surprised as I was when Redskins safety Sean Taylor got shot...which was not very. You just sort of expect it based on past history. Still, the reports that Britney has a special "fantasy" room in her house are kinda cool:http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2007/11/28/2007-11-28_britney_spears_keeps_secret_fantasy_room.html
