Random stories from a Kingston girl

Not Christmas yet!!!

My computer is behaving rather strangely at the moment. Well, actually I lie. It’s not my computer that’s behaving odd, it’s other peoples. My office computer is just behaving dead. Apparently it is being fixed today … I am waiting anxiously. So in the meanwhile, I am forced to wander around the office, grabbing anyone else’s when they step outside for more than 2 minutes. And the one that I was on this morning was being rather odd.

I tend to be in early in the mornings as I like to make myself a hot drink and read the newspapers online before everyone else arrives and the day starts. I did that this morning and was dismayed to see every single blog and newspaper site that I looked at was talking about Christmas! I got upset – it is way too early to think about Christmas. After all, we haven’t even had my birthday yet (which is October 6 i.e. tomorrow!!!).

After huffing and puffing and trying more sites, it finally dawned on me. I’d seen all of these stories before. In fact, they were all old news. And when I finally let the coffee sink in and rubbed my eyes, I realized why. All of the pages were dated 23 December 2005.

I am now slightly concerned by how long it took me to work that one out.

    Happy Birthday when it comes. Christmas has become such a drag that they have to start making a big hoopla about it as early as summer. Hell, Fame FM started playing Christmas carols in July!!!

    Thanks for the early wishes!

    No such luck gela - will be working tomorrow... I figure that I finish early on a Friday and that if I took the day off, I'd just be hanging on my own so might as well work and save the day off to recover from a girls weekend at the beach we have planned for next month!
