An open letter to Target

Dear Target,

Okay listen I know it's not your fault that James Taylor, Aly & AJ, Jim Brickman, Sarah McLachlan and Enya all released Christmas albums this year, but did you have to put them all by each other at the store? I mean Jesus H, people, at least give me a fighting chance of keeping my money. Also what is up with all the cute hat/glove/scarf combos this year? Last year I looked all over the place, and you had crap. Now you have 47 different kinds, and I want all of them. I mean one of the sets is chenille. Do you know how soft that is? What are you doing to me? Do you want me to be some kind of weirdo poverty-stricken old lady surrounded entirely by hats and gloves and listening to Christmas music? Because that's what you've made me. That's what you've made me!!! (Mom and Dad, you may have played a part in this, too.)

P.S. You're lucky I didn't buy Lionel Richie's new Christmas album. Actually everyone who rides in my car with me is lucky I didn't buy that.

I had the same experience last week! Each and every scarf set was wicked cute!

Is it bad that my house is furnished with a mix of authentic antiques and Tarjey?

The Aimee Mann Christmas CD is supposed to be the pick of the litter this season. She is amazing.

Holy Crap! I'm scared that your scared that you think I've grown up. I guess it was bound to happen, I've been grown up for years now... maybe even decades.

Adam, OMG. You named me the your favorite interviewee! This is the greatest honor of my life. Somehow a few lines later you insulted me by saying I was only a genius of comedy and TV and nothing else, but I totally don't care. You = my favorite Australian ever and I am including Keith Urban in that and I looove him.

Kiki, because I am an upstanding, law abiding citizen. Also because I didn't know you could do that. Where can I do that?

Ok, Sarah, I hate to break it to you (and Target too, perhaps) but it ISN'T EVEN NOVEMBER YET. Why are you listening to Christmas music already?!? OK, I might be a bit of a scrooge myself, but I suppress the urge to tell people to turn off the X-mas music during the holidays. However, in OCTOBER and early November you should be ashamed of yourself. LOL!
