Violating another one of my own rules

LIFE RULE # 1225: Do not listen to Christmas music before December lst.

Except yesterday I did. And I liked it.

Because I and our children sing in choirs (read: begin singing Christmas songs in September), Christmas music has been playing at our house for a month. This goes against EVERY rule, since Thanksgiving is the best. holiday. ever. But I find myself (gasp!) enjoying the spirit of the season I am feeling.

What?! No "Bah, humbug!"?

I love it. As of right now, I'm listening to the Messiah...and I have to admit I've been listening to it since Halloween. I regret nussink!

Dear Annakin,

The Emporer Radio is deceiving you. You cannot bring summer back to life by skipping Gorge Yourself Til You Fall Asleep Day. Also known as, let's watch a lot of football day.

There must be balance in the universe, young padawon.

Do not give in to the darkside.

p.s. I know your father.
okay, not really, but I know who he is.

It is only OK if it is Mannheim Steamroller and it is snowing outside. Because Eugene doesn't get much snow, Randi and I are going to have to wait until Black Friday to bust out our Mannheim Steamroller vinyl.

I'm not sure Bob the WW would divorce you for trying to acquire a chihuahua (it would be a serious trial, however), but Christmas music before Thanksgiving? Better not have a chihuahua sitting on your lap on November 16 listening to Christmas music or things could get ugly.

Hurrah for the new book.

You should go right out and buy or adopt a dog smaller than your cats, smaller than the parrot. You already have a dog larger than a pony. There's a symmetry there.

What is the etymology of "Bob the Woodworker"?

Lucky for me, Blogger recommended your blog to me tonight! I'm a former Utahn, so I remember your great columns, and I also remember you speaking to a class I took at BYU many moons ago.

One more thing--rules about Christmas music were made to be broken.
