The Words I Write Ain’t Big or Bright (or Even Here)

Happy New Year, everyone!

While I’m still digging out our home from My Love’s annual overly ambitious holiday decorating work (I’ve rolled up 56 extension cords and unplugged 29 lighting timers in the two days since I started this project, and those laid-off British Royal Guardsmen she hired as live “nutcrackers” are not taking my pleas to stand down seriously), please take a click over to Kristine’s Wait in the Van blog to read “The Northeasterner’s Guide to Texas” I prepared for her before she heads to the Lone Star State this spring.

Anyone want some leftover candy canes? How about a few hundred white doves of peace?

Mmmm, squaaaaab!

  4. Read the post over at Wait in the Van. Loved it. And when I say "loved," I mean "was terrified."

  6. Thanks for reminding me. I need to take down our decorations, too. Don't want to be the BAD neighbor.

  7. being from T3exas, coming to the Northeast, i think it is much worse, the way i did it. there(in the lone star state) you only have to get use to people saying hi, having and shooting guns, open beer in the car is okay laws, dry counties and general bad mouthing of "northerners". I remained in shell shock for 2 years after moving here (and i am not sure i am over it yet).

  8. I am such a disgrace. Not one single christmas light adorned my house this year. But I had the tree on a timer, so it was lit when we came home every night...

    Does that count? No?

    There's always next year.

  11. Hmmmm... no excuses! Even Snookie managed to put out (a book) and she is working with only 2 holiday inflatables and not a bright bulb to be found.

    Have to go read about Texas .....

  13. No doves. No candy canes. And I'm glad it was you winding up the extension cords not me. I had a "minimalist" Christmas. No outside decorations and very few inside ones. It will be easy to pack away. Not bragging or anything . . .
