    my home has turned into Hallmark Christmas movie central

    Last week the Hallmark Channel started their Christmas movie programming. They must make a ton of these. My wife is now in full-on binge watching mode. These are some of the sappiest movies ever made, and follow a very exacting formula
    1. Boy and girl meet, get off on bad foot
    2. One of them has lost the Christmas spirit
    3. Several comical misunderstandings; maybe throw in a magical Santa character
    4. One of them has an epiphany and realizes the true meaning of Christmas
    5. Couple live happily ever after

    All's you need is Lacey Chabert, Candace Cameron or Lori Loughlin and a couple of days of filming and you have a movie

    Make it stop

    Damn, and here I was all pissed off about a car commercial's blaring the Transiberian Orchestra or whatever heavy-handed Christmas song that is.......

    Call your cable company, ask how much extra it would cost each month to block that horrific channel. Life is too short to suffer like that.

    I canít wait for the Manheim Steamroller holiday music. (Something that I have never said and never will because that is some unbelievably annoying sheot.)

    Monk: I want to go like my Dad did Ė peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    System: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President, for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    EJD: Modern-day conservatism isn't conservatism, it's reaction rooted in deep pessimism that isn't in keeping with the American character.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    I thought about blocking Hallmark and QVC but I am afraid she might retaliate by blocking me from several online bike stores

    That's why "man caves" are so popular to get away from such nonsense.
