Is your item bigger than a breadbox?
So the image of the moment is some lights I have obtained for this year's tree... very unique in that they're avocado green and burgandy purple, along with the orange which I'll swap out when they go up, and that it's only 3 colors rather than 4 or 5. We haven't put up our tree yet, but we will this weekend I suppose. Sure, a little slow on the draw this year but we keep having guests over so don't want to get anything started when we're going to need the space. Also, since I haven't blogged yet this month (whoops), we've filled the display case at the library with our wonders for the sixth time in seven years... this year the theme is "A Homespun Christmas" and contains items you can either make yourself or look homemade. :)
Stupid thing I've wanted to say for awhile: There's this handheld toy gadget called the 20Q – actually, several of them – which plays 20 Questions with you to guess items (or sports figures, or TV shows, or whatever other specialty ones you find). I have discovered that if your thought is really good, it will go out to 25 questions before giving up. Okay, here is how you totally screw with a 20Q, the one intended for general subjects: Think about genitalia, whichever kind you prefer. The questions become very funny in that light, like playing an adult version of Mad-Libs. And twenty-five questions later, it will fail to have guessed the item... someone seems to have left those parts out of the database. That's today's holiday gifting tip; pass it along!
Okay, so, well, I can now say I've written something. Happy holiday of preference to you handful of readers, and I wish you a bountiful 2009. With the way the economy is going, that's not just a "how are you?" ersatz statement, I really do wish you a bountiful 2009 because you could probably use one. Hasta.
we'll still be following!
worked from home the last two days, and may be doing so a few days next week as well. i work early, and every offramp into seattle is inclined severely.
I decorate for Christmas right after Thanksgiving is over, so our house has been twinkly for some time now. It was weird though, because yesterday I de-Christmased the house since we are spending Christmas in CA. I didn't want to come home to a Christmasy house after Christmas, so I packed it all away.
We love that 20Q hand held game. We gave those as gifts to family members once, and we have a couple of them. I will have to try your suggestions and see what funny things it comes up with.
I also wish you a bountiful and healthy New Year.
So far, we have not been personally affected by this downturn in the economy (except for when gas prices were high), so I hope the new year stays steady in the financial department since we will have two kids in college come January.
Seriously, I wish you and Paige well in the coming year.
Now, go eat some cookies and say Ho Ho Ho a few times. It's time to bring some merry into your holidays.
