TOO GIFTED FOR YOU 2009: For the Obsessive Christmas-Lover in Your Life
My personal take on the holiday season could generally be described as "indifference, with a slight bent toward 'like'." Like everything, Christmas has its ups and its downs. Polar bear cookies are awesome; "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" makes me want to slit my wrists. But, if there's one thing that makes me want to fully Grinch it up and spit eggnog at reindeers' faces, it's definitely "obsessive Christmas-Lovers." Like, is your life so unfulfilling the other eleven months of the year that you need to channel that much psychotic enthusiasm into poor December?
But maybe I'd be an obsessive Christmas-Lover too, if Christmas was cooler. Like, if every Christmas carol was as good as "Hey Jude", and Santa looked like Syd Barrett, and slutty mall-elf costumes were designed by Alexander McQueen. There is a serious shortage of "cool Christmas-themed merchandise" in this world, which is why stumbling upon these Limedrop earrings filled up my proverbial "stocking" with a sleighful of holiday cheer. These little dudes are cuter even than cutie-cute Rudolph, and are undeniably seasonal without being undeniably lame. Plus, you get to pop them out of the packaging, which is kind of like popping one of those crappy little chocolates out of a cheap cardstock advent calendar, which is one of the most satisfying feelings in the entire world. It is the "pulling dried glue off your fingers" of the holiday season.
