Last night as I was watching TV I saw a commercial that irritated me. So what else is new? What commmercial doesnt irritate me? Fear not, this one really got to me. Sleigh bells ringing and snow flying. People walking down the street with presents wrapped in bright paper topped with large red bows. The commercial was for Carnival Cruiseline. The temperature has barely left the high 80's here. The Astros are going to the NLCS and I am supposed to dream of a cruise? I am not ready for the holiday commercials, sorry. I have noticed more and more toy commercials. It's a good thing I am not an advertizing critic. But I guess it behooves me to get on the ball and finish (I mean start) Christmas shopping and bake that Thanksgiving turkey. Then, maybe I'll have time to take a cruise for Christmas. That is if I finish everything I need to do before next July 4th.
