Okay, I'll come clean. My name is Wuzzie and I'm a Hallmark watcher. Yes, they're cheesy and formulaic, predictable and loaded with terrible acting but they're also the great escape from reality I sometimes need. So tonight I'll be turning on the Christmas lights and the fire, pouring a glass of wine and enjoying the "Princess-Prince-Crown-Father-Mother-Grandpa-Gramma-Boyfriend for Christmas" movie offering and I'll toast each and everyone of you as you celebrate (or don't) in whatever way makes you happy! :D

I was watching it too ;). Agree, reality escape.

Yes I agree with it all except for the Hallmark movies I find them relaxing.But watching the commercials for meds for lethal illness will have you convinced you are next or delusional or that there is something wrong with the air in your home and it is slowly killing you unless you get a DNA kit and find you are from another world.

Yes I too am feeling Grinchy,very Grinchy- the bureaucracies are stressing me out,fill this form answer that email, "final notice" type mails.Everyone sickly on TV,begging for donations,sad puppies vs the disgusting Kardashian extravaganzas .

I like what the old nut Timothy Leary once said :Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

nuff said.

Couldn't help but share this popular sentiment and humorous quote on a 'crafty' thread this morning as I'm still procrastinating myself...attachment.php?attachmentid=28128&stc=1from Old Dude ..."Secret Santa brings out the Scrooge in me more than anything else. I HATE Secret Santa stuff and refuse to participate in any way, shape, or form...just tape a 5.00 bill on a picture of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever and call it."

You, Keepstanding, Kooky Korky, and 18 others like this.

Wow, do we agree, Old Dude! Right on! Secret Santa Sucks! Say that 10 times real fast!

Hey everyone,

I have to say, I do LOVE this time of year...digging out my Christmas scrubs, playing music on my computer at work, Christmas movies (except for the Hallmark ones...I tried but I just can't lol)...but the biggest complaint I had...I went to Big Lots to do some shopping and they had Christmas decorations...a whole wall of them...in AUGUST!! Who buys a Christmas tree in the summertime??

I'm also feeling a little Grinchy because I'm the only unit clerk scheduled for our ER on Christmas Eve (normally we have 3).

BTW...Davey Do...that's a pretty kitty you have there :-)
