The Electric Buzz of Merriment

I got iced in last week.  Couldn't leave the house for days.  Inches of hardened sleet, in early December no less.  Just ain't natural.  But at least it was just sleet, and sleet doesn't pull down trees and cause blackouts.

Speaking of trees, I hope everyone has their lights and trees up by now and gotten things all festive-like.  I went with a blue theme this year.  Used some outdoor icicle leds I had sitting around on the tree.  With the lights on it's an innocent, if brightly lit, white tree.
But turn off the lights and
I feel like I have to shout to be heard over it!  Even though it's completely silent!  And I'm writing!  That's how blue it is!

Happy Yuletimes!  Yeah!

I LOVE this tree!

I saw an artificial tree in Borders back before it closed. It was very small, and I wanted one like it, just a lot bigger. The tree itself was metallic black,and had red lights, and I thought "This is just so... Goth".

I have this vision in my mind of this cute, unsuspecting, slightly Gothy girl who is preparing for Christmas and ends up being a Christmas toy for one of Evil Dolley's cheerful, relentless, romantic,merciless sadistic characters. And she's SO jolly over her new toy, and she's looking forward to getting it out of the wrapper and playing with it.

I love your stories. Always have.

Anyway, Seasons Greetings, and may your Christmas wish come true.
