First Sign of Christmas 2016 - July 29

Jul
29

Hey, it's here.

For last several years (perhaps over 10 years?) the first sign of Christmas at Costco was these Christmas ribbons.   I always see them in late July.  Today, July 29th, at my Costco shopping, I expected to see those Christmas ribbons, and I there they were.

I was excited to see those ribbons  You know how much I love Christmas. To me, it's fun and exciting when I see the first sign of Christmas.  It so happens that Costco is the store that officially releases Christmas products the earliest.  This adds to my mental association between Costco and festive feeling.  When I think about Christmas, I think about Costco. My Christmas will not be the same without Costco.

We still have long Summer months left.  But, seeing these ribbons changes my internal energy.  Things wil be different now that Costco has officially hinted Christmas 2016.

We will have good time this Winter.  And, soon, 2016 will be a history.  So, now is time to show love to my friends and family before I look back with regret.

Enjoy~!!

Christmas 2015 - Cubicle Decoration

Dec
23

Merry Christmas

Here are some of the pictures of my cubicle at work.  I wasn't able to enjoy Christmas last 2 years, but I'm back stronger than ever.  I had so much fun so far.  It's been glorious. I am sad that the season is almost over.  But, we still have almost 2 more weeks to enjoy.

Who cares if Christmas was created by greedy corporate people?  I thank God for greedy corporate people.

Some people try to make it a point NOT to celebrate Christmas, so they can stand againt the culture molded by capitalistic "pigs" - and they hope that I would avoid this 2 months of absolute joy every year.  All I can say to them is... Merry Christmas~!!!

First Sign of Christmas - July 21, 2015

Jul
22

Look!  I found Christmas product at Costco today (July 21, 2015).
Christmas season has officially started at Costco.  We have 5+ long months to enjoy.

Sadly, I lost Christmas spririt for last 2 years.  I went through depression 2 years ago.  And I was mellow last year.  Now I feel fantastic, I flew to San Francisco and Georgia making new friends.  but I am still single.

Well, it's all good.  There's nothing to worry about.  It's Christmas time.  I am hoping for Christmas miracle.  :)

Merry Christmas~!  Thank you for keeping touch, some of you.. especially 2 years ago. :)

First Sign of Christmas 2014

Aug

I saw the first sign of Christmas at Costco on July 25, 2014.

I don't like getting old.  I am losing excitement on Christmas... I am tired and busy.  I just want to lay down and take a nap.

I hope I will enjoy Christmas this year.  Last Christmas was the worst time of my life (some of you remember... it's getting close to 1 year already)

God bless everyone.

I am sorry for not updating my blog.  Things are changing.  I've been busy.  I am not negative.  I am positive... I'm just busy.  Keep in touch.

Christmas Time is Here

Aug

August 16, 2013

Christmas time is here at Costco.  I am very happy and excited.

My new job is much less stressful, so I will have time to enjoy this holiday season.  I will not spend a lot of money this year.  There will be no Christmas tree.  I am carefully saving money for next Christmas (2014).  I plan to buy a car with whatever the cash I saved.

Have fun.  Don't complain that it's too early for Christmas.  Don't be one of those people who complain, but be the person who enjoy Christmas in August at Costco.

Ah~~ four months to enjoy Christmas at Costco.

First Sign of Christmas 2013

Christmas time is here at Costco.  (July 3, 2013)

I think it will take about 1 more months until we see any more Christmas items other than these ribbons at Costco.  The ribbons came about 3 weeks earlier than I anticipated.  But, I kept my eyes opened.

And "BOOM~!" I found them.

Here we go~~!!

Costco Shopping - Mrs Scrooge, Adolfo Suits

Sep
15

Ah! it was a glorious Costco shopping today.  It was fun.

I plan to have a BBQ baby back rib Sunday, so I bought a jar of pickle chips to go with it.  I already have ribs and BBQ sauce I got from Costco.  There will be some good eatin'.

Christmas is in full swing at Costco.  I looked at every single item there.  Then I turned back to make one more round.  I love 48" Twinkling LED Snowman.  I hope I will have enough cash to buy it next month.

I saw Costco's Christmas Cookies (European Cookies), but I didn't see Chocolates of the World yet.

Christmas area at Costco was beautiful.  I said hello to parents with their babies playing with Christmas toys.  There were music boxes playing Christmas tuns.  Everyone was smiling.  There were kids checking out toys.

I bought a beautiful water globe and 100 LED lights.

Then there was one old lady.  She was alone and was talking to herself loud "Christmas already?" "It's only September"  "I mean, come on! this is ridiculous" "This is not right"...   She was keep walking and talking around Christmas section to make her point.  But... she was only proving that she was not a happy person (probably doesn't like sex).  She looked mean~!! Foot in mouth

I don't care if Christmas is commercialized.  Christmas makes millions of people happy.  A lot of people don't think about true meaning of Christmas.  That's perfectly fine.  The point is we have fun.  I thank God Christmas is commercialized. To me, it is not right for some people to get angry at Christmas and spread bitterness when we're only trying to have some fun once a year.  We are not hurting anyone.  OK, we are stupid, let us enjoy and spend money. Just let us be...

And I thank Costco for bringing Christmas early.

###

I thought I was done shopping with $50 worth of merchandise in the cart.  Then I saw Adolfo men's suits roadshow. For less than $100, I could have Adolfo suit.  They even had my pants size.  So, I picked up a set.  Ah~!! There is always something at Costco.

So, I ended up spending $150.00+

Now I have three brand new suits that I never wear.  haha~!

###

I spent a lot of time looking at Adolfo Suits, so when I was done shopping, food court was closed.  After Costco, I went to Wal*mart, Home Depot, and Smart and Final.  I came home mighty hungry at 10pm.
