I'm not ready for this

Headline seen this morning in one of the local papers: 
 
114 Shopping Days Until Christmas

People, it's 100 degrees F (36 degrees C) here today, and I live in the northern hemisphere, which means we have Christmas in the winter.  When it's cold.  (Well,  relatively cold ... I am in L.A. ....)  But I AM JUST NOT READY TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS SHOPPING YET!!! [/end venting]

*goes off to find the nearest air conditioner and stand in front of it*

That's a bit early. Basically a third of the year is now supposed to be the Christmas season? It's like 9 million degrees in NOLA so pardon me marketing gurus if I don't partake in the festivities quite yet.

It gets more insane every year, huh?

At least we (typically) just get the heat. You get the humidity on top of it.

All I can say is I'd better not hear any Christmas carols (*looks pointedly at acting Barnes & Noble music department manager*) until November. Preferably after Thanksgiving, but I know that's probably too much to hope for.

It is Barnes & Noble, isn't it. Not Borders?

Oh, you're forgiven! And I actually need to sit down and reply to that e-mail, don't I? *adds item to "To Do" list*

Oh, while I'm thinking about it, you may not have gotten the word about my new e-mail address. There was a lot of unpleasant stuff going on at work a few months back, including the head of my department demanding that we all allow him access to our work e-mail traffic. So at that point I asked everyone to please switch over to my gmail account, which is: aswanargent@gmail.com. I think this all might have taken place during that period when you went missing from LJ. Things have calmed down since then, but now that I have the laptop and can access my gmail anywhere, anytime, I'd just as soon keep personal stuff away from people (my boss) who don't need to see it. So, if you could just change your address book, it would be much appreciated. Thanks, dear!
