Oh, am I the only one that has noticed this? There haven't been ANY decent Christmas movies on TV. NONE. Sure, I have a few Christmas movies on DVD, but that's not the point. I think right after Thanksgiving I saw that Elf was on, so I DVR'd it. A week or two ago there were a few Christmas specials on the local channels (Charlie Brown, Shrek, etc.)
But now? IT'S THE WEEK OF CHRISTMAS! This blatant disregard for the holiday had me in a rage...poor Joe was the recipient of said rage.
Me: Let's find a Christmas movie to watch!
Joe: Okay. Sure.
Me: (flipping through all 1,654 channels....flip, flip, flip, flip.)
Me: (now checking the On Demand channels...flip, flip, flip, flip.) What the hell is this?
Me: There are NO Christmas movies on!!
Joe: What about "random movie name here"? That's a good movie.
Me: IS IT A CHRISTMAS MOVIE JOSEPH?! IS IT?! No.
4 hours later...
Joe: (flipping through channels...flip, flip, flip) He stops on Big...then puts on Doc Hollywood.
Me: WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!? DO THEY NOT REALIZE THAT IT IS 2 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND THEY ARE PLAYING THIS SHIT!
Joe: This is a good movie...
Me: YEAH, ANY OTHER DAY OF THE EFFING YEAR! THIS IS CHRISTMAS! WHERE IS CHRISTMAS VACATION? WHERE IS RUDOLPH? WHERE IS FROSTY?
I don't have the time or space to continue with my entire diatribe...but it went on for a while. So long in fact, that Joe removed himself from within my flailing arm range, went to pee, came back out and I was still going on.
Me: AND ANOTHER EFFING THING, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CRAP ABOUT THEM PLAYING WHITE CHRISTMAS ONLY ON FRIDAY MORNING AND ON AN HD CHANNEL!?!?
I am proud to say that I have calmed down considerably since then...though I am still in a funk about the whole thing.
Oh, Clark. I miss your face.
