so i bought a christmass tree today. james would say i didn't. it's kinda fake. ok, i bought a FAKE christmass tree. for a decent price. i grew up with fake trees. like i'm not enough of a fire hazard without a real corpse of a plant being lit with 1000+ christmass lights on it. and shiny glass things. and we ALL know how good i am with rembering to water plants... and those are the ones i wanted to keep ALIVE...
actually, the tree and applicable decorative stuff are early christmass presents from my parents. yea for having a credit card that they get the bill for :-) i am very happy. however, with james and steve here, and being all online, and me being all anal about christmass lights and how they go on trees... i'm not actually... i have about half the tree lit (and by half i mean over 800 lights.... though it's half way up the tree... i think i mentioned i was anal about this) i had invited steve and katie FL and nick (though he couldn't come) to come over and help decorate, but we encountered some snags, and 3 hours after katie leavs there is still a lack of a fully lit tree. i'm also wicked hyper at this point. it shall get done tomorrow.
so to facilitate such gatherings, james and i didn't go out to dinner and order cocktails. i bought beer/malt beverages/cider and got carded. and i was LEGAL. yippe! it felt nice. i'm sure i'll order a drink SOMEWHERE for SOME reason this week or next. i'm just.... yea... i got a christmass tree. :-) now to drag darxus over here and make him cower in the glow of the christmass stuff. *muahahaha*
