That’s right, it’s December. This is when a lot of people freak out about shopping and travel and how there is not enough time to get everything done. Everyone go ahead and have your “Holy cow” moment, then relax, make hot chocolate and put on the best holiday album of all time, Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas.
Cambodia still thinks it’s July, and refuses to get cold, chilly or even less-hot. It’s going to be 90 degrees here today, which is 16 or 7 or 49168 or something in celsius. (I still have no idea how that conversion works.) I have a plastic Christmas tree that I will be putting up tonight and am planning on decking the hell out of the poor sucker. Last year, my tree looked was topped with a viking helmet and styrofoam snowflakes, so I hope I can put together something as classy as that.
Not that this is all that helpful, but I wanted to remind everyone that maybe they don’t need to freak out around the holidays. If you get to be around people you like this time of year, that’s pretty much the best. Your family stresses you out? Have another eggnog and play with the kids/dog/tinsel/fire. Don’t have time to shop and don’t know what to get? Use our handy Goodie Guides, starting tomorrow, and shop online from the privacy of your bed. Hate cookies? IF YOU HATE COOKIES STOP READING THIS BLOG BECAUSE I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY TO YOU.
This is all to say that it’s going to be fine. Even if you don’t go to every party, or decorate like Martha, the important stuff will be there after the holidays, so don’t waste your time being a crazy person.
In case of emergencies, please remember that this guy cares.
