haters beware.

you know the phrase that mentions
something about a watched pot not being able to boil?
i have come here to tell you
there is truth in this phrase.
so.much.truth.

for the past week/week-and-a-half
{let's be honest, since halloween ended}
i've been obsessively changing
my radio stations between
106.5,
100.3, and
89.1
in hopes of hearing christmas music.
it was like russian roulette
but the bullet of joy and happiness
never fired.

after making homemade pasta
in my cooking class last friday,
i got in my car
and expected to hear i'm ready, i am
blasting through the speakers.
imagine my surprise 
when my eardrums were blessed
with this glorious gift. 
it truly was a christmas miracle.
don't believe me?
allow me to hit you with some facts.
uno.
 i was expecting the format to play
because i was listening to my cd, not the radio.
santa changed my three option-stereo
to the right station at the right time.
dos.
this is one of my favorite christmas songs.
it's the children. they get me every time.
tres.
the moment i gave up obsessing
over christmas music on the radio
is the exact moment it appeared.
magick*.

i rolled down my windows
and blasted my happy music
as i cruised out of the parking lot.
i basked in the strange looks
and plugged ears due
to my happy, loud, and off-key singing.

i love this season.
please note: 
in my mind, "this season" 
means thanksgiving and christmas.
i like to combine them
and feel two whole months
of gratitude, happiness
and love.


*magick is making a comeback. 
watch it happen.

I adore this. I don't allow magick because I made a Christmas cd for my car in September... It's a shame, really.

a watched pot never boils.

that is something i tell myself all the time. personally, i think it's best applied to when you are staring at your cell phone waiting for a boy to text/call you.
