Stores were putting out Xmas stuff by the first week of October and this is the time of year I always bring my iPod/headphones to Tom Thumb while grocery shopping because they have the same Xmas music on loop. NORMALLY it's Debbie Gibson's "Electric Youth" EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I shop there.
Just a couple days ago bought a 20 pack of holiday cards and about to start addressing them because I remember being late on that last year. I used to send out more than 100 yearly but over the years marked people off the list because I never heard back from them, at Xmas or any other time of the year. I don't give a fuck, less envelopes for me to handwrite addresses! I can be rude too! LOL
