But you know what, I'm not going to.
We got our tree up today, I have to admit that reforming the branches into tree shape was not a part of my childhood Christmas tradition, but tobogganing a tree out of the woods (at an Xmas tree farm) is not really an option here, as there is still lettuce growing in our garden.
The tree is WILDLY overdecorated, we made decorations here, we had decorations in Canada and on the boat, which have all been amalgamated on a rather moderate sized tree....looks .... exuberant.
Kids are happy. Lovely day. Lovely lovely day. Slept in, drew, taught, hung out, walked the dog with a friend and her dogs, cooked, ate sat by the fire reading stories, decorated the tree and sang carols. One of my students even sang Oh Come All Ye Faithful in Latin! LOVELY!!!! he has a wonderful deep baritone voice.
PLUS the good guys just beat Madrid in MADRID!!! JEJEJEJEJEJEJEJEJEEEEEE!!!!!!!! The fireworks and horns in town are impressive.
Seems poor kids in Toronto aren't going to be. Thanks Mr Ford, thanks Toronto. What were you thinking voting this man in? This is REALLY what we needed? Comments about the man's size are being resisted here. Almost.
God it makes me so angry.
