Bah! Humbug!

The tree is trimmed and the exterior lights are lit.  The holiday cards have been sent and the presents have been purchased.  But for some reason, I lack all holiday spirit this year.  I see on the calendar that time is slipping away toward the big day but I only want to curl up in bed with the covers over my head while wait it out until the new year.

Is it because I'm behind on the short story that I'm working on?
Is it because the rain has not stopped for three days and I'm looking online for ark building plans?
Is it because the dog is rummaging through my dirty laundry and hiding my socks around the house?
Is it because the Bengals lost to the Steelers last week?

I don't know why I'm a holiday grump this year, but I thought I would celebrate it with the other well-known holiday grumps.  So here's a clip.

Oh, and here's another well-known holiday sourpuss!

Wait!  At the last minute, they all had an epiphany, where they mended their evil ways and made nice with the townsfolk.  So there's still hope for me yet.  I think all I need is this:

Yep. I think that would put me in the holiday spirit. Have a great holiday season and I'll see you in 2012 where I will be bringing new stories and new insanity.

Come on over to my blog and read a great interview with new Avon Impulse author, KC Klein, it's got a giveaway, too. I think it will make you smile. : )

I'm happy you found your possible cheer. I must warn you... if you find it I'll have no choice but to kick you out of the the grinch society. ;)

I'm a proud member. In fact, I just got my own grinch shirt for the season! (Oops... I must be careful that it doesn't cheer me too much...)

Ugh, it keeps raining here too! It's depressing. Your videos made me laugh though :)

I've been the same way, which is weird for me because I normally love Christmas. This weekend we are finishing up the decorations and baking cookies. Maybe that will help:)

Watch Xmas movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. That usually does it.

I want to use some of the insults from the Grinch song on someone and see if they figure it out .
