I knew something was missing - Tia

So I've been working my butt off trying to get ready to go on vacation. Well not so much go on vacation as not go back to work until the new year. I've been on the road and in something of a funk for personal reasons that I will eventually write about...I think. So with my schedule being what it is and all of the work that I've been doing on top of house hunting, it just hadn't really felt like Christmas the last week or so. I mean, sure the pictures of the screaming children sitting in Santa's lap are always HAHALARIOUS. But something just felt like it was missing. Then I realized...I hadn't watched any of my favorite Christmas movies.

Most of my dvds are in storage. But I did kept a few with me. I didn't know how long I was going to have to keep my stuff in storage and didn't want to have to go out and rent something that I already own. I know it's not a big deal, but it's the principle. I just can't knowingly give Blockbuster $4 for a movie that I've seen a million times AND own.

I kept Love Actually and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with me. I figured I could watch A Christmas Story on TBS. But I don't know what I was thinking not bringing A Charlie Brown Christmas. Say it with me now, "CHRIST, THE LORD." (Linus was not playing with y'all.)


So even though it's almost 11p.m. and I just heard my blackberry chime (Seriously, who is up thinking about work besides me at this hour?) I put in NLCV and skipped to my favorite scene: Clark's freak out.

Now it feels like Christmas.
