If you look closely, you can see our Christmas tree reflected in Guinness’ eye. He’s obviously impressed ;)
I am not sure where this joke originated, but it is making its way around the Internet:
"I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace.
Dr Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished."
So I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn’t finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahlua, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription with the last of the scotch, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates.
You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now."
I hope you too find inner peace! Just maybe not the Dr. Phil way ;)
The latest Apple commercial is a Christmas-themed spoof of one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies: the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Claymation from The Original Christmas Classics.
In the 1964 Christmas story features an outcast reindeer and wanna-be dentist elf who run away together – run into the Abominable Snowman, find an island of misfit toys, to which Rudolph eventually leads the way for Santa’s sleigh.
In the Mac spoof, a desperate PC bastardizes the holiday classic, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" to encourage people to buy a PC and not a Mac – to which the Mac and Santa look on disapprovingly. Though it’s not a story spoof, it’s incredibly clear where the inspiration for these characters came from!

Ok. So I went a little crazy on the whole Christmas tree thing. Last year, I bought what was probably the largest tree I’ve ever owned, at something like 6 or 7 feet. This year, I headed to Rona while there were still lots of trees to choose from and fell in love with the first tree I had them unwrap (a huge feat for me). But, it’s about 9 feet or so tall.
Ianiv was not there while I picked it out and the look on his face was priceless. Already thinking about how we’re going to get it out after Christmas. But, with some care, we got the tree home. It was going to go on the second level by our stairs… but, well, it was touching the ceiling and you couldn’t walk around it. Oops. But, it looks great where it is, and is beautiful. A gorgeous, big, symmetrical tree.
Thanks to Tamara for helping to decorate!!
