Nope, no spirit

Still can't get into the Christmas Spirit, not in any way shape or form. I am really trying to figure out how to get there, but it is not happening. Everyone else is singing their carols, bedecking trees and I could give a crap less.

So why DO we put up trees? Why DO we spend all our $$ buying crap for others. Ok I know that they are termed 'gifts' but really............what do you remember of last years' 'gifts'?  I mean, think about it: I am a knitter.  I knit. All the time, everywhere. It's not a secret.  Now you'd think a gift of yarn would be greatly appreciated, right. Any kind of yarn, even that fun fur stuff.  I'll use it. I've got charities that I knit for.

How much yarn have I received for a Christmas gift? NONE.  Really? I mean REALLY? How freaking hard is it to go to Wal Mart and pick up Red Heart? I'D USE IT! I'd REALLY use it!

Instead I get more body creams.  Do I smell bad? I DO shower and stuff.
Or Candles.  Scented candles.  Yeah, the only candles I use are the ones when the power goes out.  Is this some sort of effort to 'chickify' me? It's not going to work. After 43 years, it.   won't. work.

Why is it we see family at this time? They're always bitching, always fighting. Can't shut their pie holes for more than one second.  I'd rather spend time with my geese, thanks.  At least I know where I stand with them.  They aren't two-faced.  Yes, I know of all the times when you mock my handmade gifts and throw them out.  Thanks.  At least I keep YOUR crap.
