I was out hanging Christmas lights yesterday. I SO didn't feel like doing it, and really didn't get much done. I'm not sure if I would do this anymore if not for my wife and son. I would, at least, do something much more subdued and different. The whole Christmas thing really doesn't do it for me anymore.
My dad's gotten sick of it as we grow up, now we just put a sort of glowy star over our outside lamp. I think it's enough. I do like Christmas lights, but I don't doubt they're nothing short of a pain in the ass and an extra charge on the elec. bill.
On a somewhat related note: I kinda wanna buy some of those smaller Christmas lights, the ones you usually put on the trees, just to decorate my bedroom when I'm watching a movie or something.
Anywho. Had a big fight with my brother yesterday. I swear, I'd have an easier time making plans with the freaking US President. We keep making plans to hang out, only for him to tell me *twelve hours later
* why he can't
(or obviously by then, why he couldn't
). I wouldn't complain, but this happens 90% of the time.
On a brighter note, I got 80's on all my mid-terms! ....70's on the papers, butt fuck it, 5 years in post-secondary, I've stopped caring as much.
