Are there no workhouses?
I don't like Christmas very much. Honestly, I don't. This time last year I devoted a week or so to posting images of horrible things happening to people at Christmas and my Christmas Eve haunting. This year I can't even work up that much energy.
Partly, of course, this is due to being out of work for an extended period of time and having to start a new job just as everyone else in the world is going into Christmas shopping over-drive. But mostly it's just a primal aversion to seeing people who'd happily slit one another's throats at any other time of the year pretending to give a damn about people other than themselves while going into debt in an orgy of consumerism.
But, I'm determined not to be as big a sour-puss this year as I was last year. So, for one time only, things I actually like about Christmas:
The songs "Wreck the Malls" and "Walking Round in Women's Underwear." Man, those never get old.
Also "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)" by the Ramones.
Officially beginning planning my End of the Year awards...
The Christmas Events in City of Heroes and now City of Villains. Last year we got to fight evil snowmen. This year we get Santa hats and monsters popping out of presents. And villains actually get a mission in which they "Steal Christmas" and earn a "Scrooge" badge. Yeah, my villains will be wearing their "Scrooge" badges for a long time.
