There’s only one thing that makes me swear more than driving and intolerant douche bags, and that’s untangling Christmas lights.
Could you put that on a christmas card? You’d make a fortune.
I second that.. this definitely belongs on a christmas card.
Totally. I almost feel out of my chair at work when I saw this.
Love it!!!!! I agree, would make a great Christmas card.
It looks like the cougar didn’t have as much trouble setting up the lights as you did. 😉
Happy Holidays 🙂
I think my thumbs must get in the way of putting them up.
I HATE this. Also, when it just happens with ordinary wires or headphones. It’s bullshit. I agree with the above though, you really should put this on a card, I’d buy it~ or I would just be cheap and print it off on some card. Buahahahahaha!
Yaaaaaaaay, Christmas header! I agree, it would be a great Christmas card. You can make it even more Christmas-y by swearing “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!” (My father’s favorite.)
Christmas header is awesome!
Untangling lights was always a family affair for me, so I look back on it fondly. We bonded over the horror.
I agree…maybe that’s why so many people in my neighborhood leave them up all year. I always hated that, does that make me an intolerant douche bag?
I like your style!
I am so happy I have opted out of that task since I’ve been away for my undergrad and now masters. I come home, and the lights are up! Indoors and out! lol
Every year we fold them neatly so that we won’t have to spend hours untangling them, and every year we take them out of their boxes to find them even more tangled than the year before..
I think they do it on purpose…
Oh such memories! Such cursing! Such scathing red-hot anger! Yay Christmas lights!
LOL! I feel that way every time I dig the buggers out of storage!
Your page is snowing now. How cute!
Yes, it is! I can’t decide if it’s too distracting or not. Everyone can feel free to gently tell me if it looks stupid or is annoying.
It will be annoying on January 1st. Until then it’s adorable.
I love the snow on the blog…but I was wondering – did you make it snow or did it just magically start snowing?
The snow is a WordPress setting you can turn on, but don’t tell anyone, I feel more talented if people don’t know I just had to click a button.
You’re so talented that it’s now snowing on my blog too 😉
It’s worth the extra money to throw them away and buy new ones to avoid the stress it brings.
I’m with Pete. They are cheap enough I would rather just spend the money and buy new….love the Christmas Header and snow fall.
Oh, the boundless joy of untangling the christmas lights. Good memories. Love your drawing, and I agree with several of the comments that it would make an awesome christmas card (my dad would LOVE it!). 🙂
haha, it happens the same to me when trying to take the tinsel out of boxes – I always end up taking it personally and freak people out if they happen to be around..
lol.. happens every diwali (a festival of ours) !! : )
Hahahaha! So funny…and so true. Part of the reason I stopped putting lights up in my apartment is for the tangled – cursing phenomena that Christmas brought out of me. Just glad that my folks push through and put their lights up 🙂
