In some circumstances, stopping to see the lights is a great thing. Homes and businesses are adorned to celebrate the holidays and many enjoy the creativity of those who decide to celebrate the season. (see Beauty and the Beer’s posts with photos http://www.beautyandthebeer.com/)
In other circumstances, stopping to see the lights is just idiotic. THERE IS NO REASON TO SLOW DOWN OR STOP IF AN OFFICER IS WRITING A TRAFFIC TICKET. We know that the lights are purdy, but we want to get to work. (Yes, you on the Connector this morning!)
What’s up with the holiday ties that DON’T MATCH ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR OUTFIT? I’m happy to see so many feeling the spirit of the holiday, but ties should match your suit! “Whimsical” is a look better achieved by infants. You look strange.
Hint – you don’t look cute without a coat when it’s 20 degrees outside. You look like you just got robbed.
A Bush/Cheyney sticker driver cut me off this morning. I should have expected it since in their mind, I’m sure they were just maximizing their commute and I would have been acceptable collateral damage if I had crashed.
We’re doing a “white elephant” holiday gift exchange at the office. We’ve been told to spend less that $10 since it’s just for fun. I’ll bet someone (one of the better paid of the office) goes to the $ .99 store for their gift – and I’ll get stuck with it. Last year I got a FREE (to the donor) tee shirt that someone didn’t want. I traded it for a Magic 8 Ball (woot-woot!) by a holy person who considered it the work of the devil. I made most of my decisions last year based on Mr. Magic. (shut up!)
