I like to think I have decent taste. Obviously, most people probably think that about themselves or we wouldn’t have all the tasteless things in the world. I guess what I mean is I don’t watch terrible reality TV or buy frivolous things (I’ve been in a Spencers like once, out of curiosity.) My cell phone doesn’t have a tripped out case and I sometimes get self-conscience about wearing lipstick that is too flashy. I keep things classy and as I said, in good taste.
When it gets to be this time of year, however, I go a little cray cray.
I get it in my head that, yes, I must buy that t-shirt of a tiger dressed in a suit holding a cat, because “what a laugh that will get on Christmas”. Yea, my sister does need that lotion dispenser with the long handle so you can reach the middle of your own back. Obviously, Mom couldn’t live another day without the pillow for your feet that vibrates. I will admit to actually buying each and every single one of those gifts.
Unfortunately, my bad taste and decisions don’t end there. At Christmas time there is more crap on the TV lineup than usual. I mean ABC Family does 25 days of Christmas, which basically means I will be watching absolute garbage for 25 straight days and somehow feel justified. Here are some of the gems that I have indulged in thus far… (and remember we still have 8 days to go)
Yes, the token ice rink scene.
– The Mistle-Tones –
Featuring the always earth shattering acting of Tori Spelling.
– Christmas Cupid-
With a stellar cast featuring Christina Milian and Chad Michael Murray… yes!
– Holiday in Handcuffs –
Again, all I needed to know was who (Melissa Joan Hart & Mario Lopez) was in this and I was already hitting play.
– 12 Dates of Christmas –
Okay. I actually liked this one. Was the story line tired? Yes. Was the acting bad? By almost everyone. But, I will support anything with the adorable Amy Adams and the man that will forever be the hottest guy in school, Zack Morris I mean… Mark-Paul Harry Gosselaar.
like a fine wine… (you are welcome ladies)
Sorry I got a little sidetracked there. I can no longer concentrate. So here is just the titles of a few more Christmas delights to get into this year.
– A Holiday for Love (yikes.)
– Desperately Seeking Santa ( Aren’t we all?)
– Snowglobe ( Wouldn’t you know it, that Christina Milian weaseled her way into another one.)
– Teen Spirit ( Not Smells Like…)
– Santa Baby – 1&2 ( If you can stand watching loud mouth Jenny McCarthy for two movies.)
– Snow – with these two…
(who has time to find their real names?)
– Christmas Caper – (I haven’t actually seen this one, but the title looks promising.)
– Beauty & the Briefcase (with big toothed Hilary Duff)
-Special Delivery (with Andy Dick, so you know it’s good)
