The true meaning of Christmas pt. 1
Surely there's someone out there reading this. I can't be the only person bored and/or stuck at work on this Xmas Eve.
If you are bored and/or stuck at work, you should head here. Blog has done plenty of pimpin' for X Entertainment in the past few months and it's not likely to stop anytime soon. The site, which is a virtual vomitorium of '80s nostalgia, has really gone above and beyond with its Christmas coverage this year.
Accompanying daily posts devoted to 20 year old boxes of holiday-themed cereal and Family Circus TV specials is the ongoing saga surrounding the contents of a Playmobile advent calendar. This little sidebar soap opera is slow going until the arrival of a doll dubbed Mare Winningham on December 6th (the connection to the ex Brat Packer of the same name remains unclear). Not to blow the plot, but Mare's winning smile and cute pink outfit belie the evil hidden in her little plastic heart. Will she single-handedly destroy Xmas? The series concludes tomorrow.
PS: Yes, the CBS logo above was blantantly stolen from the site. Doesn't it bring back found memories of Christmas Specials Past? If you're REALLY bored and near a television, the Pac Man Xmas Special will be on Cartoon Network at 4 PM later today. If Blog can wrestle the HDTV office remote away from his Oprah-addicted coworkers, he'll be spending this afternoon of Xmas Eve ODing on childhood nostalgia.
