I have a lot of food ornaments on my tree. It happened by accident, I think. I somehow got my hand on the Jell-O mold and fruit cake ornaments (you'll see them in a second) and a collection was born.
Pretty much my only collection, too.
Because I'm too much of a commitment-phobe to have a collection. Collecting requires some sort of discipline, perseverance and space (for display). I have none of these.
SO! Here's my FAVORITE!!! My old boss and buddy Kim gave me this one. It's supposed to light up, but remember my whole lighting-the-tree-saga?? Let's just gloss over all that and say that my new lights aren't compatible with my old light-up ornaments. Okay? If I think about it anymore than that, I will get all "bah humbug" on y'all.
How cute is this???? I ask you???? And I also got a shot of one of my first faves, the apple and orange crate! Cute!
Oh....and Zuddy got me a new one this year. I was going on and on about Linda's fridge ornament, so he went out to find it (but couldn't), and got me this one instead:
Sorry, it's a little blurry. Cute though, right?
Okay, so I'm totally behind in my whole Holiday schtick. Today? I want to make this look a little more festive:
I think an excellent way to start is to take the frozen pumpkins and dead kale outta there, don't you think???? I bought some greens put in the pot and I'm making my own wreath with them as well. THIS should be entertaining, people. I have my "Z" wreath form from my last years' Ballard Designs wreath and I'm going to give it a go and post a photo tomorrow.
Okay. My new MJ story:
Have you ever heard of the Roches?
They're a singing group. They have beautiful harmonies - especially when they're singing Christmas music.
So, MJ calls me the other night, She and Michael are going to a concert and she needs to know how to get to the venue. I give her directions and ask her who she's going to see? The Roches. Oh! I have one of their Christmas CD's. Okay! Have fun, MJ!
Now, for me? The story would end right there.
But not for MJ, people. Oooohhhhh no.
She got up on stage and sang with the Roches. No freaking lie.
That's all I know of that story right now. But a month from now? I imagine we'll be talking about this and she'll let the bomb drop that they spent the night at her house because they became best friends.
Another thing: I'm not sure I'm ready to out myself on this one yet.......but I was telling MJ about a concert that I'm going to see in January? First of all, she laughed at me.
Laughed at me.
LAUGHED AT ME.
Then she told me she sang at that one, too.
And truly? I'd laugh at me too. Only your true friends will laugh at you when you tell them a totally embarrassing deep-down musical secret.
Other people you think are your friends? Like your Internet pals? They'll sllooowwwllyyy reach for the mouse and "CLICK" the red and white X, never to be heard from again.
