bah humbug...  
The fact that every part of my house is falling apart around me coupled with the fact I've had to spend all my personal time with contractors rather than doing my Christmas shopping has left me feeling incredibly divorced from the holiday spirit this year. I don't even care that we can't have a Christmas Tree this year because my girlfriend's allergist forbid it and that used to be my favorite thing about Decemeber.

My only attempts to give in to the season so far were photoshopping the requisite Santa hat to my LJ icon and adding some Christmas songs to my Launchcast station yesterday. Maybe I should hook up the VCR and find my copy of "The Year Without a Santa Claus" (featuring Snow Miser and Heat Miser).

 
 
Listening to: Ron Sexsmith - "Maybe This Christmas"

Waaah? House falling apart? Your lovely little house? What happened?!

Have you considered the joys of owning a fake tree?

I'm considering the fake tree angle, but I don't really know what's available. The fake tree my parents used to have was awful, just green plastic tinsel handing from green cardboard branches, but I'm sure they've improved over the decades.

What's gone wrong? Roofs, ceilings, plumbing, windows, etc...

Wow. I guess there *is* something to be said for the Industrial Revolution. Ahem. Sorry about your house woes; if it's any consolation, I am Ms. Big-Christmas-No-Fun this year, too. Blech.

You should watch it!

Do!

I've had the damn songs stuck in my head all morning and it would be nice to think there's more than one person on with "He's mister icicle.... He's mister ten below" stuck in their head too.

*wanders off muttering " Whatever I touch, turns to snow in my clutch.....I'm too much..."

My favorite bit is...

Snow Miser: Mrs. C., great to see you. How's you hubby?
Mrs. Claus: Well, I'm afraid he's got a pretty bad cold, Snowy.
Snow Miser: Ah... that's a shame. You should have sent him to see me.
I would have given him a good one!

The barely disguised malice in Dick Shawn's voice as he says it is just genius.

Ah yes, there's nothing like a completely naked woman fixing a car ... except for a naked woman in high heels fixing a car ...
