...Mayan Prophecy (?)
Read books by AWers!
My Gregorian 2012 calendar ends December 31, but I have confidence State Farm will send me another for 2013. Could be we haven't found the next stone their insurance company sent the Mayans.
I don't exactly hate it, but I do miss Christmas carols.
F- that. I'm celebrating Christmas because it's the funnest. Celebrate what you wish, but don't hush me when I say, "Merry Christmas", because you think other people's feelings might get hurt.

"Look at the sound of all these people on fire. I want to be on fire, do you want to be on fire?" -- Most Roads Lead to Home, Listener.

It was snowing last night. And this morning it was SO cold.
Heat. It's the start of Summer down here on the bottom of the world. It's meant to be a long, hot one...
We've already had 1 day at 40C, which is over 100F, and that was before Summer officially started!
Otherwise, I tend to like December. Few responsibilities and at the end of the month the family and I exchange gifts. I, for one, like the gift-giving tradition.
I can't think of anything that I like about December.

Tears are peanut & helplessness.
I know I'm going to come off all scrooge, but the Salvation Army bells ringers. Seriously. I live in a college town with tons of malls and big-box stores and they are everywhere! I also hate the fact that every time I walk by and don't put something in the kettle the bell ringer and all the good souls around them glare at me.
One of the local radio stations also turns to all Christmas music right after Thanksgiving and starting December 1 every single restaurant and mall in town, not to mention most the people I know (especially my mother) blare it top volume until new year. Ugh. I love Christmas music, but the variety around here is really sad. If I hear "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" by the Jackson 5 one more time...I might go hide under the bed with Kelly.
Nothing. I live in Florida. mkaythxbai.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
The blog, which may not be updated regularly enough. -- I'm linking to other AW blogs here. -- There's some nonsense here when I can be bothered.
Don't hold your breath...
The British Comics Database is growing. Or mutating. I'm not quite sure which, yet.
Consumerism hiked up on steroids.

B****ing people. I swear, 90% of the people that come into the store I work at can do nothing but sneer, kvetch, complain and be nasty to others--especially those of us behind the counter. Before Turkey Day, the same people were happy and joking, but now--not now. I really hate the stress the holidays put people under that make them change so dramatically.
The cold. I'm in a rented house and haven't figured out how to get the heating to work. If I cuddle up in bed my feet still go numb from the cold and I'm living with a hot water bottle on my feat.
Ginnie- wow. That's terrible. I assume you've located your thermostat and turned the heat switch on? If you have a pilot light it might have gone out. Otherwise, you should call your landlord asap. That's no way to live. Other things you can do include picking up that awesome plastic covering for inside and outside your windows. It usually comes with the sticky tape to put it up. That will block drafts. Be sure your windows are caulked properly too. Check your vents for blocks. And get some extra blankets.
good luck and stay warm!
I only hate December if it's snowing, which it usually is by now up here...but it's warm right now...which is crazy, but awesome!
Wait, I live where it's supposed to be snowing and it was in the 60's today...yep, world's gonna end.
Do not look here...there is nothing to see.
Christmas presents put strain on my finances and stress me out, and I've got a revision deadline looming on top of that.
But apart from that, I love December. Rain! Hot chocolates! Snow! Quiet days at work when everyone goes home for the holidays.
I can't complain too much about December. I have a birthday coming up soon, and I love Christmas!
But, the one thing that always brings me sadness this time of the year is the fact John Lennon was murdered in December, not long before my birthday.
"God help and breed you all."--John Lennon, In His Own Write (1964)
"I have a distinct feeling about people who think of writing. It is this—if anything can stop them, it is probably no great loss."--Alexander Woollcott
It's cold, the university session is drawing near while I realize I've done NOTHING yet and I get extremely lazy from the Christmas vibes all around Not a healthy mix!
Nothing! I love everything about December - the snow, the atmosphere, the darkness, the pretty lights in the darkness, the decorations, the solstice, Christmas, the burning log on the fire... Yay!!!
Oh. Except my end of year exams, which start on Monday.
