Christmas light blogging


For our first Christmas in the house, we put up lights. We haven't graduated to a tree yet, but this is a big start for us. Who knew that we could be so domestic?
I've never had a tree, and I don't plan to start. I used to have a leopard statue (kinda like this) named Gompers (yes, actually after the labor leader) that I would put some tinsel on and hang an ornament off his ear, and then we'd put our presents under that. Gompers died in a tragic moving accident when furniture in the moving truck shifted and crushed him into tiny bits.
My presents are currently gathered around the scratching post.

Off topic:

Amanda, have you read anything by Greg Egan

http://gregegan.customer.netspace.net.au

He writes hard-sf that delves into all kinds of topics; his short stories in particular delve into insanely mixed up gender roles, fundamentalism, cloning, simulated consciousness, corporate health care gone crazy, lots of other good stuff. ("Axiomatic" and "Luminous" are his two best short story collections, I believe).

Here is one story online:

Anyway, thought you might like it :)

What's wrong with a tree? Not that can't decide not to have a tree without thinking there's something wrong with it, buy you seem to imply that there's a reason for the no-tree-ness. Somehow, a tree has a strange draw for me...I actually seriously considered buying a tree (fake) for my first christmas in my first apartment (which is this year), but then I remembered that I'm broke and that I'm also Jewish.

Dear Amanda, isn't the internet amazing? I was out looking for info and sites related to home grown christma trees and the search put up your post 'Christmas light blogging'. Whilst it's not exactly what I was looking for I can see why it came up when I searched on home grown christma trees and other terms. Just thought I'd let you know I stopped by. Bye for now and thanks for a good read!

Had a bit of time to kill today Amanda so I was sniffing out info on Noble Fir Christmas Trees for a project I'm working on. Your post Christmas light blogging came up when I searched on Noble Fir Christmas Trees. So thanks for an interesting read, glad I found it even though it's not completely related to what I was looking for! I'll look back from time to time if that's OK. Bye for now

Hi,

I've put up a site related to web site hosting directory its only been up a couple of days. and i'm still scouting around for information and articles that may be suitable for some of my web site hosting directory pages. Your web site hosting directoryblog seems to be a good idea, I doubt if my web site hosting directory site will become as popular... but I suppose that depends on me finding those web site hosting directory articles.... A well, on with my journey - thanks for reading, hope to see you on my web site hosting directory site.

Take care
Steward.
