Pretty day, huh?

Christmas music time! I usually start with it the day after Thanksgiving, but I'm really slacking this year. Oh sure, the cards are out, and the baking's half done, but I'm not going to decorate this year. I feel a little sad about that, but I can't even seem to make myself go up in the attic to put the Halloween box away, let alone bring the Christmas down. And let's not even discuss putting up a tree.

At least I did go get two of the annual Hallmark Star Trek Christmas ornaments. They are the best ever this year, too. That tribble one is beyond awesome. (I skipped the Reliant.)

I know just how you feel. I forced myself to do it, but then just bought a giant elf. So I feel broke AND Christmassy, and they go together, right?

Dane said...

You bought a giant elf? Are there pictures of it?

Well, I took up the Halloween today and brought down the hurricane jars filled with shiny bulbs and the wreath. That's it for this year!

How could you pass on the Reliant?

I'm actually dying to get the Jonny Quest and Space Ghost ornaments this year.

Great photos as always, Dane.

Unless it's an Enterprise, I don't really get excited about the ships.

I saw that there was a Jonny Quest ornament but haven't looked at it - I'm sure it's pretty cool, though.

And thanks. :)


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
