I've been on a homemade beef jerky kick lately. Directly unrelated but awesomely coincidental: my mother in law got us a pressure cooker. It has a dehydrator built in! Woot!

I will say though, I've been cooking my beef jerky in the oven at 180 degrees over 5 hours....and the video i saw on you tube with this particular pressure cooker, produced the same exact looking beef jerky i had. So i may just continue to use the oven unless the pressure cooker does it quicker.

Also, I got a nice sports coat that I've desperately needed.

Happy Holidays you nuggin futs!

My sister got me the best gag gift ever. (We do a name draw.) She printed out all of the pictures of me with crazy faces, snarky faces, hilarious selfies, etc. She then put them in a box with a shirt that said "If my mouth doesn't say it then my face definitely will." I belly laughed pretty hard! It felt good.:)

So, no, I think it has nothing to do with people not explaining in great detail what they gave to others. Maybe it has a lot to do with the stress of expectations during this season and the focal point being material things that cost so much. Maybe that's why it's depressing. Not because we're subtly implied selfish assholes for not explaining what we gave.:shrug:
Then doesn't it stand to reason that this depression just might be expectation specific? I never said anyone should be obligated to pen a novella on what they gave. I just think the commercialism has a price and that price is high.

People's lives are so stressful and shitty, that Christmas becomes just another thing people have to get through. Everybody has to buy presents for each other, which is stressful in itself because it's hard to shop for others. Some people tell others "I don't want anything", but there is a societal expectation to buy the right thing for everybody instead of just enjoying each other's company. People end up getting more presents than they gave out and then feel guilty. Everybody would be more grateful and actually enjoy Christmas if life wasn't stressful and full of expectations.

You can sell that shit all you like but I ain't buying. People's lives are stressful and shitty by choice.

Again, this is a choice. You are choosing to 'get through' Christmas based mostly on fucking marketing. The merchants and advertisers created the game you choose to play. Its all an illusion.

Haha. Says who? You are defining the season as "Christmas" so that means you're basing the celebration around Christ. Did Christ command you work yourself into a tizzy over making sure you figure out a way to get Jamal that pair of Yeezy's or Karen that 14 carat bracelet? I must have missed that. Which book is that in? Matthew?
which is stressful in itself because it's hard to shop for others.
Buying shit for people is stressful? Damn dude. Just....wow.

You make your own expectations based on what you value. If you value the social expectation to buy the right thing over just enjoying each other's company then you've created that reality BY CHOICE. "Hey Mom, I've decided that instead of playing the consumerist game this year I think it would be better to have dinner then next week I'd like to re-paint that bathroom you've been wanting to make over". "Nah, Sonny Boy. I'd much rather you run into Kmart and grab me that Lavender Bath Soap Basket". Is this seriously your reality?

K Mart used to be great where I'm at. The gun counter was run by an old farm girl who loved talking about hunting. You could still buy a Remington 870 for $120. and hunting/fishing licenses, tags, bulk powder and lead. That went away when that fuckhead shot up Sandyhook. His entire line should be castrated.

This is fucking stupid. How the fuck is stress a choice?

And society fell for it hook, line, and sinker. I'm stuck in the buying shit because everybody else is, and people get disappointed in me if I don't.

I don't follow religion, and celebrate religion secularly. I get anxious buying shit because other people might think I don't like them as much if I don't give them equally awesome presents.

Yes it is when I have to worry about getting everybody the right thing, and getting disappointed if I don't.

I don't create my own expectations. I live in everybody else's expectations all year. Christmas is the worst. I didn't put myself in this reality, everybody else did. I'm just stuck trying to please everybody or else I won't be respected as much.[/QUOTE]

Ad nauseum.
Thanks for being a douche, and writing a long triggered post berating me for my feelings. I bet you fight the war on Christmas every year because you think people are attacking Christ by not celebrating Christmas correctly.

If not having a stroke over trinket acquisition makes me a douche then color me guilty. Hopefully those chocolate covered cherries in February keeps you off the therapist's couch.
I'm not complaining about not getting enough for Christmas. I was complaining about people not being grateful for their "trinkets" and expecting me to provide more. Stop changing my point to look better. Stop telling me to stay off the therapist's couch when this is a complaint site, and you wrote a nice long complaint yourself.

Today I saw that candy bars were 88 cents and was planning on buying one, but I forgot about it until now.
It was one of those Fun Size candy bars. Fun size? What piece of chocolate candy bar on this planet is not fun size? Ask a fat kid, they're all fun size.

But not the melted fucker that I had? It was mud size. Stupid underwears!
