Commercialism


So, I am heading into the gift-buying time of the year, when I shell out what little cash I have left after paying bills and buying food and booze, to purchase gifts for the fam.

And I hate it. I mean, most of my family doesn't give a shit if we swap gifts, but we do it out of habit every year. I finally ended the tradition of getting a gift for ever sibling and step-sibling and implemented a name drawing system. That is my first step towards eliminating Christmas gifts. I mean, I like buying my neice stuff, but even she has every single toy in the world.

So, thinking about this reminded me of the book I have above that I always see and think about reading, but haven't bothered to because I am too dim to follow through on reading most non-fiction. Anybody read it?

So, on this holiday season I give commericialism a big fat stinking F!

Grade: F

Its so retarded that we're so pressured to buy stuff. I just want to see friends and family and eat.

I'm not celebrating Christmas this year. I am throwing a birthday bash for Jesus instead. But it's a surprise party. Jeez, I hope Jesus doesn't read your blog, Charlie!

BTW, you're linked on my blog too. Usually, I just go to Dustin's blog first, and then to everyone else's through his. :)

My family has to draw names too. No way would I buy presents for everyone. Casey, am I invited to the party?

Buying for everyone is hard - I am glad I have a small family, but even I have troubles. My mom just said to me the other day, "If we could all just admit that we didn't have enough money to buy lots of presents, we'd be better off."
