Hit the Snooze Button

No.  Please stop this madness.  It's not Christmas season.  It can't be Christmas season.  It was just October the other day, right?

Sigh.  I know some of you have already put up your Christmas lights.  A curse on you!  Kidding.  I get it.  You're going to be out of town, the kids are coming over, the weather's been nice.  I get it.  I just don't like it.

Whine. Whine.  Yesterday, a "last-minute" Hammacher Schlemmer catalog arrived in the mail.  Last-minute?  Really?  At least it's good entertainment and my wish list is nearly complete.

To kick-off the start-to-get-ready-to-think-about-gifts season, I've selected a few of my favorites:

I love taking power naps.  But, really, this thing?

I can see why Evil Twin loves it.  It is so her.   I'm a bit concerned about wearing it on an airplane, though, but at least it would hide the drool.  That hairstyle you put together?  It's toast.

Let's take it to the next level:

Wouldn't you love one of these in your office?  Let me get my warm cat and binkie.

But this last one is the one you simply must have....

in your spaceship.  I will certainly have one in mine.

Practice safe snoozing out there, folks.

I want a PEACE of you!

I'm excited to see my blogging friends writing about PEACE today.  Peace begins within and we need more of it in this world.  We also need humor.  Peace is getting a lot of attention.  Unfortunately, "piece" got upset about this and decided to assert herself, via Evil Twin, of course.

I want a piece of you!

Whoa.  That's not peaceful.  Back off.

I want a piece of pie.

Ok.  That's better.  I'll make one.....soon.

Wow.  That's a nice piece!

Um, what EXACTLY are you talking about?

That shotgun hanging on the wall.  What did you THINK I was talking about?

Sigh.  I'm glad you clarified that but I think that term is used for handguns.

Ok.  That's enough.  I hope you are having a peaceful day.

Singing (more likely disturbing the peace)....

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.
