Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Unter dem Weihnachtsbaum
This is what it looks like from the floor in front of our surprisingly nice artificial tree:

No, we're not indulging in Christian allegory. Skylar asked Santa for a large stuffed lion without having expressed much interest in the Narnia film. And he clearly heard her request in spite of the hype.

To thank him for his efforts, I made sure to have a pot of coffee ready to accompany the homemade cookies that she left for him. "Is this Peet's Christmas blend?" he inquired. "Yes," I replied. "Not bad. But the fact that you can buy it in hundreds of Safeways takes away some of the pleasure, don't you think?" I had to agree. And I felt sheepish saving the Raging Sage Christmas blend for myself, so I asked him if he wanted to sample that as well. "Nope, I'm already running behind. Merry Christmas!" As he walked out the door, I noticed the puddle where he'd been standing. I wonder if it will evaporate by morning.

Santa peed on your floor? Dude, that's totally good luck for the coming year.

BOOOOOOOOO ARTIFICIAL TREE.

I read kdd complain that the trees dry out but mine never have... you do water them right?

I used to feel the same way. But we can have it up a lot longer this way, which comes in handy. And it looks pretty darned good. If we lived in the Bay Area or some other place where it's easier to prevent drying out, we'd go back to the real thing in a second.

Awesome.

They were out (no surprise) of Christmas blend when I stopped in at RS Thursday evening for a Christmas gift for the parents, so we're drinking Monsoon blend out of season. I don't mind.

Merry Christmas!

you people are fucking freaks for this coffee.

Yes.

Sometimes I think the fun of being a freak for it must surpasse even the coffee itself :)
