Mutter mutter f-ing netdorks mutter

I'm very grumpy right this millisecond. On Thrift Horror, I posted a silly little contest to find the "most disturbing Santa," with a silly little trophy as a prize, and people are getting pushy and rude and competitive about it. *sigh* People pick the stupidest things to get strident about.

Christmas eve, and we've got all the presents wrapped. Kitchen's a little messy, but it's only a half-hour to clean it at this point.

Was working at my mom's church for a few hours, helping sell books. I'm going to be un-PC, but I'm feeling pissy right now. I've been at mom's church on and off for years, and there's a really annoying retarded kid. He used to steal cookies (the ones I'd bake and sell, splitting the money with mom and earning a pathetic $40 or so a week, most of which went back into ingredients) and hang around and mooch things, and generally waste my time. Irritating, but...these things are a part of the world, no avoiding them.

Anyway, I'm working the bookstore tonight, and my high school creative writing teacher comes in! I see her once in a great while, every two years or so, but it is a treat. And cosimultaneously, so does the retarded kid. I say a few words to her, but she says, essentially, "I'll let you get to your customer," and runs off :(

Bah.

Grump, grump. All unimportant things that are transitory, and pale in comparison to the orgy of present-opening and cooking ere the morrow.

Well...the church is open until like 12:30 for a Christmas Eve service, and she wants to be open whenever there are that many people in the church. Which makes sense. And she only asked me to be there from about 3-6, and I was able to get a little wrapping done, and she got to go have dinner with her daughter's boyfriend's family, which is probably important.

Hey Spotty, just dropping in to say "merry Christmas"! Thanks so much for making and maintaining thrift_horror! You probably already know this, but the community got Boing-Boing'ed this morning. So you're big time now ;)))
