Tired and headed upstairs, but wanted to get this out of my head before bed. I had Lifetime on this evening, solely because I saw Kristin Chenoweth's name in a movie description and thought I'd watch a minute. During the ads, they were running spots with Tim Gunn; I assume "witty commentary on the holidays" was the intent. I'm paraphrasing, I admit, but I ran it by my mother who was also in the room, too. The spot was roughly:
"Nothing says I care better than a homemade gift. Unfortunately, nothing says 'cheapskate' better either."

Wow, Tim. Way to seize upon the spirit of giving AND the zeitgeist. I'm pretty sure that's non-denominational stupidity. Second time this year Tim Gunn has made me turn off the television; maybe I should thank him.

Spending *time, love and effort* on a gift is far more important than spending *money*. I'm sorry for anyone who lives in a place where they don't see it that way.

But seriously. I thought he was kind of entertaining before, but after that comment...not so much.

yeah, there is a lot of media out there that implies that home made gifts are not as good as, say, a Plasma TV. Disgusting.
