Freshest Christmas tree ever

We had a volunteer cedar growing too close to the house, and this weekend we decided it finally needed to come down. And voila! Christmas tree!

It’s a little too tall, but the top is very bendy. So we just curled it over. Somewhat Charlie Brown-esque. As is usual every year, Monster Girl is baffled by the sudden growth of a tree in her spot, but she’ll get in the spirit eventually. Probably that would happen faster if I stopped trying to put bows on her head. But she’s so cute!

Hope everybody’s holiday season is fresh and pleasantly scented!

Hope your day was merry & bright

Jessa Slade drinks the blood of banned books

For Christmas from my loving family, I got a Banned Book mug! The mug makes everything taste better, tinged with the tangy-sweet tears of angry, small-minded people who try to ban books only to be mocked by mugs. Monster Girl down in the corner would like a sip.

(The bottom of the mug reads “For best results, use other end.” Heh.)

I hope everyone had a lovely Friday, a Merry Christmas, a delightful full moon, and generally Happy Holidays according to your inclinations.
