Sitting at home, drinking an ale, and watching the Nats game when suddenly....

they played a Christmas Commercial*!

Holy crap, summer ended days ago.

2. I was in Big Lots 3 wks ago. They were decorating the Xmas

Trees they sell. I commented on the date to the woman who was working on them. She agreed with me, shrugged her shoulders and continued. They've taken all the fun and excitement out of Xmas for everyone, regardless of your age.

6. Was at the grocery store (Giant)

Today and they do *not* have Christmas stuff out yet! Just Halloween and Thanksgiving. Give them a few days.

I was at the Giant on South Glebe Road in Arlington, the one near the wastewater treatment plant.

Turkey Hill Egg Nog ice cream, which is a seasonal flavor, was in the freezer.

I doubt that the store manager gets much say in what is in the mix of varieties that gets sent to his store.

Egg nog was not in the Aldi that I went to yesterday. Give it a few weeks.

11. Hi Ellen, Sad that the Nats are tailing off as the playoffs get closer.

They need to get healthier quicker.

10. My rule is, the first company whose xmas commercial I see gets none of my xmas business.

And that was fucked up, because it was Target last year.

But I stuck to it.

13. "They" (whoever that is) have been running the commercial for the laser light thingy

that splatters the lights all over the side of your house for well over a month. Ostensibly, those are "Halloween" lights, but you know what that dog whistle is all about as well as I do.
