I am thinking about giving up Tegan & Sara because every time I listen to them, I start wondering if I should get a mullet. They make it look so convincing. And that is so wrong on so many levels. There is no possible way I could work a mullet. I can’t even believe there are two people in this world that can.
I also can’t believe I just admitted to considering a mullet.
It is December and sure enough, I’m getting into the holiday season! First by looking at all the outdoor light displays popping up all over town. Turns out I am the Bitter Scrooge of Christmas Light Displays. You would think I was judging a competition, I am so critical of them. It’s sad. That’s probably worse than admitting I’ve been thinking about getting a mullet, since the holiday season is all about being really nice and generous in spirit but really now, people: colour uniformity and balance are your FRIENDS. When decorating, ask yourself what Martha Stewart Would Do.
Although some displays are so amazingly tacky they are beautiful. They are even better than the Martha Stewart-like ones, actually.
So maybe I should just shut up.
To continue nurturing my burgeoning holiday spirit, I’ve gotten a Candy Cane Hot Chocolate from Tim Horton’s (too sweet, blargh), been listening to Sufjan Stevens’s Songs for Christmas (if you love Christmas music, that is a beautiful album) and collected every Archie comic I own that has Christmas-themed stories in it to read, which took a while (I almost admitted how many Archie books I own there, but I think I’ve mortified myself enough in one blog entry). I also watched the Trailer Park Boys Christmas Special. Which was awesome.
I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow to keep the momentum going but keep it going, I SHALL.
(I call mid-December burnout! Woot!)
