10/07/2005: Say it ain't so... say it ain't so.....
For lunch, I went to try out a new sandwich shop which just opened up not far from my office.
While waiting for my sandwich, I noticed that the sound system (wasn't Muzak™, more likely a stereo) was playing "O Holy Night".
While I've been accused of being a "hard core" atheist, I don't mind the holiday season and its religious excesses, as long as they're not being crammed down my throat (unfortunately, that's the usual state of affairs in a town that has more churches than gas stations). But I do sincerely believe that Christmas music and decorations before f*cking Halloween is A Crime Against Nature, and should be punishable. Preferably by slow torture.
I'm too afraid to ask if the Christmas merchandise (or at least the candies or decorations) are out in the stores already. I don't know what would happen if the answer is affirmative, though the thought of sedatives and restraints comes immediately to mind.
