I hate being part of a cliche…

If there’s one thing I hate it’s those certain cliche conversation starters that people use because they’ve run out of things to say to each other. Like for example, that guy in the office just has to freaking mention that he’s seen the first Christmas display of the season and can you believe how early it is this year? God I hate people like that.

So it pains me to have to do this, but OMG I was in Wegmans Supermarket (way the hell out in Fairfax) on Sunday August 27th and they not only have Halloween candy for sale, but they also have some Xmas decorations up! It’s not full blown Xmas frenzy yet, I’m sure that they’ll gradually add more as the day gets closer, but you can definitely see a few Xmas trees and Santas here and there. I’m not sure though which bothers me more, the fact that they are starting Xmas 4 full months before the actual holiday, or that they expect people to hand out 2 month old candy for Halloween! Maybe they figure that a lot of people can’t resist eating the candy if its sitting in their cupboard for two months, so they’ll have to come back and buy more.

Merry Xmas everybody!

    This is the best news, evah! I’m holding out for mini eggs in my Christmas stocking. I cannot wait to see the giant Easter bunny up before New Year.
