i recognize that the cool thing to do these days is to ride into the woods on a sleigh pulled by two horses and chop down a tall evergreen with your own bare hands, or an axe, while sipping hot chocolate, wearing a pretty party dress, and taking ridiculous amounts of professional-looking pictures on your expensive camera. i understand that the cool thing to do these days is to decorate said tree with vintagey, creative, DIY-type ornaments and garlands while listening to sufjan stevens Christmas albums and still taking ridiculous amounts of professional-looking pictures on your expensive camera.
well, we still have our 3 dollar tinsel tree from canadian tire which looks suspiciously like a spaceship. and when it's lit up, i'm pretty sure we could pop a bag of microwave popcorn beneath it.
forget the tanning bed; we have an ultraviolet Christmas tree.
and i think it's nice. in an alien-esque sort of way.
so anyways, we put that up and decorated it and drank cinnamon heart tea lattes and listened to a Christmas music mix from last year and made a nest on the floor and fell asleep beneath the radioactive glow of our little tree.
