Christmas is Coming

46 Days until Christmas.  I either don’t really know what I want or don’t really want anything at all.  I think Jess is thinking about getting me a TiVo.  That would be pretty sweet.  I don’t watch a lot of TV but the things that I watch religiously actually interfere with my Time Management quite a bit.  If I could watch Monday’s Heroes, Tuesday’s House and SVU, Thursday’s 30 Rock all on Wednesday, that would be Awesome.  Sure, I’d be a week behind on 30 rock, but it’s a sitcom, WHO CARES?

The only flaw in this logic is that with the Writer’s Strike by the time I receive the Tivo on December 25th, there won’t be any new shows to actually record on the TiVo.  Sure I won’t miss an episode of Rob and Big, and I’ll catch up on every TRUE LIFE: I’m an Asshole ever made (I love those trashy documentaries but Jess usually won’t watch them with me), but that’s about it.

I’m thinking I might not hook it up until we live together.  I wonder if the TiVo people will feel a subscription hurting thanks to the lack of new programming.  I guess only time will tell.  Either way, this post is about Christmas, not the writer’s strike.  I’ll get to that bullshit later in the day.

For now, let’s just say that the only thing I’ve reliably picked out, that I want for Christmas are these sneakers:

They’re pretty bad-ass.

And so, with the picking of the first present, the holidays are officially on their way.  Which is good, since many Santa booths are already up in the malls.  Commercialism, providing employment for pedophiles two months a year.  It’s not just the Christian Holiday season that’s begun either.  Today marks Diwali or “Festival of Light” not to be confused with the other festivals of light throughout the year in Jewish and Muslim faiths.  Someone in my office is actually celebrating Diwali, although I don’t know how.  She’s not wearing a ridiculous sweater or trimming her cubicle.  I guess in this post-modern era.  A simple Happy Diwali text message will do.  With that in mind, I wish you all a very happy Diwali.
