Christmas Trees!

I'm home for the holidays so me and my mom decided to decorate one of the trees along the road in and out of town for a laugh. Turns out, it's extremely difficult. Most trees are much taller than me, despite my being six feet tall in my winter boots. Also, it is FREEZING here! So our hands went numb and every needle on the tree that touched us literally felt like a needle was stabbing us. My wrists and hands got scratched to hell. But it was still a laugh, as you can tell by our tree that looks like there was an explosion at the tinsel and bow factory.

Also, in lieu of a gingerbread house this year, as I had made one at Halloween, I made a gingerbread Christmas tree. Getting the consistency of the icing wrong has become somewhat of a holiday tradition with me. I guess I'll just have to settle for melty looking gingerbread by-products.

Pushpin Attack!

So un-called for. Second work related bleeding in a week! I should be getting worker's comp!

Also, guess who broke the fancy bathroom decoration! For the second time!

And, will this never end? (Note the giant chunks of salt)

First Winter Storm!

This tree was being such an icehole! ee ee.

Sometimes you have to go for the obvious.

It's just trying to stay warm.

Usually I take a bite out of my paycheque. Today my paycheque took a bite out of me.

Extreme Close-up!

If you look closely at my ring, you can see my stripey sleeve cuff and my hand and camera taking a picture, as well as part of my thumb.

This joke is so old.

Mmm... so many good chewy things here.

These two band-aids were on Spring Garden Road. This particular one has been there for months. Months! It can stay on a sidewalk but not on flesh. Today I finally had a chance to get a shot of it.

Then it was two for one cupcake day at Sweet Jane's!

This is from a paper cut!!! So uncalled for!

The sickness monster has bitten me again and infected my blood, hence my recent lack of posts. Also, I was in Cape Breton for a few days, in a house full of sick people spreading their germs to me (a.k.a. family reunion). President's Choice Canadian Maple Ice Cream is attempting to make me better.

Guess who went to the eye doctor!

Also, I was hoping finding that fully clothed band-aid would put an end to these shenanigans, but apparently not.

The ultimate lost band-aid!

Christmas Craft Fair!

One of these babies will set you back $3200. I find carousel horses oddly appealing, despite being kind of creeped out by them. And if I had won the lottery last night, I totally would have bought one of these.

Santa's going digging.

Indoor band-aid! I expect it will be the last band-aid for quite some time, as the cold weather is preventing the exposure of skin, therefore less band-aids can make it outside of clothing.

Guess who got new glasses at a flea market!

Happy Earloween!

Now, in the words of the immortal Garfield:

Almost Halloween!

This is my window at work. It's a little odd to have ghosts on the windows while I type up the last words of the dead.

This is some awesome stuff in my apartment. I EAT halloween!

Nothing says halloween like Chinese food boxes to eat your candy out of.

Halloween Hippo!

I made these! Well, not the rock part. Just the paint part. Well, I didn't make the paint. I just put in on the rocks.

My mom made me this!

Me at halloween in Walt Disney World! Guess which one I am! (Hint: I'm a woman. Well, girl anyway.)

Soon enough there will be snow on the ground and I will no longer have to stop to crouch in the street taking pictures of band-aids.

I actually saw two more, but my camera had broken (I used it to death) and I was not able to capture the two other vacation band-aids, or the one I saw the other day on the way to the grocery store. Sorry to deprive you. The second one had not technically fallen off, but rather was removed, folded upon itself and left on the ledge of a bus window. Because it's so hard to hold on to it until you get to a garbage can.

Pod people!

Third leg!

Everyone there was eating meat on a stick. For some reason.

Real live hippo!!!!
