Call me silly, but I have absolutely no good reason to get up early this morning and I did anyway. I could have slept until 10:00 am but knowing that this is Christmas still gets me giddy and excited, even with no little kids around. I woke up and my first thought was, “It’s Christmas!” and I walked out to look at my beautiful Christmas tree and it just made me get shivers. I love this time of year.
Merry Christmas – I hope Santa was good to you last night!
When we have Mondays off for a holiday, it really fucks up my entire sense of what day it it and how my week is going to flow. We had Monday off for Labor Day – which was nice, especially since I got a paid holiday. It sucks to have the place you work closed for a holiday and it means you just don’t get paid that day. You paycheck being short a full day’s pay can really suck ass. At least my job was both closed and they paid me.
But today feels like Tuesday. I had to work extra hard yesterday to try to get caught up on an extra day’s work. So I’m tired from partying my ass off on a long weekend, working extra hard yesterday, and now today is Wednesday but it feels like Tuesday. So forgive me for having a bad attitude. I will get adjusted by Friday, I promise.
I cannot wait for this stupid fucking holiday to pass. This has to be the dumbest holiday there is and it totally sucks ass. All I see is a holiday manufactured by the card, flower, jewelry and chocolate companies to cash in on. It gives women an unrealistic idea of what men should be like all the time. It’s as bad as those idiot romance novels and chick flick movies. Totally unrealistic. There is no way for men to live up to that shit and then women get pissed off when we can’t. We are men. We fart, burp, scratch and generally are gross. We like it that way.
I hate having to live up to expectations like that. Sometimes, there just isn’t enough money for a lot of gifts or the relationship hasn’t reached a gift giving stage, and if you ignore the damned holiday then the relationship is doomed right then and there. Maybe I shouldn’t hate on it so much, but it is kind of hard not to. I don’t like to disappoint people I like and if I am dating a girl it means I like her. I might not be in love yet, but I like her just the same. I vote this holiday and unfair one.
