THIS CALLS FOR AN INTERVENTION
on the 100th day of Christmas, my neighbors put this crazy shit up...
can someone please explain to my neighbors the following rules about decorating the exterior of one's home:
- dude, CHRISTMAS IS OVER. in fact, even if you follow the rule that Christmas decorations get to stay up until the religious holiday of The Epiphany, you still only get 'til January 6th.
- it's friggin' February now. if it's late enough into the new year that you can't say "Happy New Year" anymore, that might be another indication that IT'S TIME TO TAKE THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS DOWN.
- Don't try to extend your Christmas decorations be adding hearts to them and all over the rest of your crib thereby signifying that you're now celebrating Valentine's Day. THAT SHIT IS NOT CUTE.
- Valentine's Day is hardly a holiday that warrants exterior home decoration. if so, I SERIOUSLY FEAR WHAT THE FUCK YOU'LL DO NEXT MONTH FOR ST. PATTY'S DAY.
the Hammer Cornucopia
i used the 15% discount offer from Wil's blog and ordered directly from Hammer this time. now the only thing i actually ordered and paid for were the two big jugs of Perpetuem. the rest was what they sent for being a first time customer. not to mention that i got a call from a nice lady named Liz at Hammer saying that she'd received my order, it would be shipped out that same day, and if there was anything else i needed or had questions about, feel free to call her. how's that for some customer service?? i'm thinking about asking Liz to call my neighbors and sweetly ask them to TAKE THAT HOLIDAY SHIT DOWN!!!
i leave tomorrow for my first century at the Tour De Palm Springs. YESS!!! gonna stay the night with my old running coach, Vic. so psyched to get to visit with him on the eve of my longest ride EVAH (guess i'm just gonna keep sayin' that, my longest ride ever). i gotta get a swim in tomorrow morning before i hit the road, but Sascrotch is gettin' a little unruly on me. off to get my wax on....TOOTLES.
