Sinatra Was Swinging, All The Drunks They Were Singing

I've been too busy with work to pay much attention to Christmas shtuff, but I decided to throw up a few decorations throughout my casa to get me into the "spirit" of things.


I used to have a Christmas tree that I'd put up every year (see here, and here), but there was nowhere to store that big sucker in my wee li'l apartment. So I sadly had to get rid of the tree, which was my favourite part of  the Christmas decorations.

I did, however, keep all the damn ornaments. With no tree to put 'em on, I decided to dress up my tall bookcase instead - complete with a star on top. It's like a Nerd Christmas. Kinda fitting, really.

Add a couple of beer bottles on that there thang, and you've got something that's pretty much as Kris as can be.


Yeah. It's a little sad.

But kinda fun in a way, cuz I got to "decorate" some of my favourite things.


An old pic of my grandpa with my cousins and I when we were tiny li'l brats?

Now Chrismafied! Alongside To Kill A Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby and Shakespeare's complete works, no less.
 

And where else can Little Women and Hunter S. Thompson celebrate Christmas with a grade-school punkass Kris and her best friend Vicky, posing on the baseball diamond?

Nowhere, dude. Nowhere.



I was about to make some kinda 'Jim Morrison is Jesus' comment, but one of 'em I believe in... the other I don't. So - my backup choices are:

He is the Christmas King, he can do anything.

or

Mr. Hoho Risin'.

Meh. Ah, leave me alone...


 I see stars.


I threw random Christmas decorations around the place.

Though it still feels (and is) half-assed, it helps.


Even the Salt and Pepper guys got decorated. They creepily look like carolers at the moment. Maybe singing this? (Go Dee, GO!):





It's officially winter. Keep warm (not like you have a choice in this weather).

Ho ho ho, hosers.

FIRST!

This is a message board right?

Has Daisy tried to smack up any of the newly placed ornaments?

Kris said...

Nope! She's good like that. Even when I put up a tree every year, she never ruined any of it. She respects the Christmasness! I taught her well.

It's the cutest half-assed decorating I've ever seen.

Kris said...

I'm gonna have to decorate Daisy.

You've got some good books there, K.

Kris said...

I try my best. I got rid of quite a few books awhile back, but kept my favourites.

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a
number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
