Rants, Ramblings and General Diary of Juliana Wathen

Ho…Ho…Ho…


I know what you’re thinking. It is WAY to early to start thinking about Christmas – even Christmas in July! Which, by the way, falls on a Monday this year and since it STILL has not been recognized by anyone other than Summer Rep Actors and the local department stores, most of us will have to  – dare I say  – work on Christmas (in July) Day.

Out of respect for the age old holiday I will host a Christmas Eve in July soiree at my place Sunday afternoon, July 24th. Sing-a-long is mandatory!

ANY HUUUUU

So, even though Santa is sipping pina colada’s on the beach outside his condo down in Cancun right now he still is making time to deliver early to the people at the TOP of his list…..LIKE ME!!!!!!!

Two days ago I found out that the wiper motor I replaced 4 months ago on my zoom-zoom Mazda is now part of a major recall and they are reimbursing folks who already paid to have it fixed. That would be me!

CHA CHING! That’s just free money people!

And yesterday, I found my favorite silver necklace in the glove box of same said zoom-zoom car that I was sure I left behind at my ex’s house over a year ago. It wasn’t like I could just call her up and say “Hey, can I come look for my necklace?” or “have you seen any of my jewelry lately?”….That would involve her answering her phone, number one and you know how that is…so I just figured it was gone and I would pout about it every time it would have “made my outfit”.I envisioned it lost in the nether regions of the couch which someday will probably go to Goodwill. Somebody would buy it and make it their own and they will have the guts to reach there hand WAY DOWN IN THERE and they will retrieve my wonderlust necklace.  They too will experience the wonder of Christmas in July.

So you see, Christmas has come early this year cause Santa knows I have been a very, very good girl so far.

And just in case you need some suggestions Santa, I’m still missing my Bobby Sherman Lunch box from 1969…Just saying!!

Life is a circle, good things always come back around!

I love each and every one of you

Juliana

  1. Wow! Merry Christmas! 🙂 if you don’t mind can you share me why you are celebrating Christmas on July?

  2. It started YEARS ago when I was in college. Most of us went to work over the summer at Regional Theaters and you only got to see these people for 3 months. It was like cramming a lifetime into a three month period. We lived and worked together all summer.

    The craft stores would always unveil the Holiday fabrics and craft items in JULY so people would A.) Have plenty of time to make things in time for Christmas to either decorate their homes or to give as gifts. B.) to pump up sluggish summer sales.
    So we adopted the CHRISTMAS IN JULY SALE as an official holiday! We decorated our dorm, put up a tree, cooked a traditional Christmas dinner, had a sing along of Christmas Carols and gave outragously funny gifts to one another. It became a tradition and the tradition lives on today!

    Everyday is Christmas Day when you are living right and in the spirit of blessings and giving.
