the lights are packed away for now
now that the rain has stopped and we no longer really have an excuse to bask in the warm glow of our Christmas lights, we took all the decorations down today. we'd taken the plunge and made the big post-marriage investment of a so-real-it-should-smell-piney tree, complete with pre-strung lights, which as far as i'm concerned is one of the best holiday innovations next to eggnog lattes. it quickly became our favourite piece of furniture in the living room... well, okay, it's one of three pieces, so it didn't have much competition, but in any case, it was a bit sad to stuff it back in the box. no more light radiating from the living room in a sort of alien-invasion-type way. sniffle, sniffle... so we cheered ourselves up by watching this video -- at three minutes it's a little long, but well worth the show! honestly, Google video is our new internet time suck (beware, it can be addictive). of course, good old regular Google returned this background story about the creator of this festive light show.
well, gotta go -- we've got lots more hilarious foreign commercials to watch on Google video! this is what happens when you don't have a television, i suppose...
