Ho Ho Ho and all that crap

I was going to grinchify a picture of myself and make my face all green, but Photoshop defeated me this evening. I guess you really do need to read the manual at some point.

Anyhow, here's my list of stuff about Christmas:
  • I heard a new Christmas song on the radio this evening. It had so many double entendres that it was borderline obscene. I was shocked. Not because of the content, but because I didn't think there was a Christmas-themed song I hadn't heard a zillion times in the last ten years. (I would post a link to it, but I can't figure out what it was or who sang it.)
  • As usual, I have no Christmas decorations up. On the other hand, at least I don't have a "tree" in my living room that looks like a disguised cell phone tower, unlike some people I could name (cough, Jeff).
  • How hard is it to crochet? I'm thinking about making these for all my nieces and nephews and calling them cell phone cozies. Yes, I'm that aunt.
  • I've become that aunt because my nieces and nephews have parents with jobs, and five aunts and uncles with jobs, and they have pretty much have everything that they can even think of, much less want. It's a far cry from my grandmother whose doll disappeared in the weeks leading up to Christmas, then appeared with new clothes as her present...
  • Bah Humbug!

Yip, yip, yip.

Maybe a heavy dose of carbs at the holiday potluck will cheer you up.

Bring some chips to scoop up the pumpkin dip -- I doubt there will be any ginger snaps left by tomorrow morning.

Would you like your cozy in purple or red?

Oddly, I find it difficult to crochet, but most people say it's easier than knitting. I would rather knit a lace shawl so delicate it would go through a wedding ring rather than crochet, well, anything.

Hope the hat is keeping you warm.

That worries me since I know what my knitting looks like...

The hat has gone AWOL, but I remember that I put it away someplace special last spring -- I just need to remember where that special place is. Luckily it hasn't been that cold lately. (You're regretting your move away from California, I know. Hey, I tried to tell you... ;-) Oh wait, it's still early enough that everything looks pretty with the snow. Just wait a few weeks.
