The little truck tree may actually work out as Godzilla. I have the basic shape down, more lights, and it’s the perfect way to use Larry’s Christmas beard baubles. I need more tail, and some talons and teeth. Either I cut and move branches, of I cannibalize an old wreath. Maybe I can find an old tRex or raptor toy and take that apart. I ordered tiny Santa hats too! Contemplating a tiny tree skirt… or a tiny Tokyo?
I got my Secret Santa gift mailed off. I do like participating, but always feel imperfect. It is fun though, to see how others view my Reddit personality. Fingers crossed that she likes what I chose for her!
I went into the mall for lunch, and because if I am spending money on Lyft I may as well make use of my time. I needed coffee, and there’s always some at Burlington. A gyro and a kid sized Orange Julius later, I perused a few stores. Found a $7 unicorn popsocket for my phone. The salesclerk had scissors and helped me get it onto my phone. I looked at the opal bracelet in the Kay’s case again, but I know I will never even ask how much it is because I have several perfectly marvelous and expensive bracelets I already do not wear. Still, it is a pretty thing and a joy to view. On to Hot Topic, where I found THREE Avenger Funko Pops. That was the sale, three for $27. No Holiday Baby Groot, but they had the holiday Thanos, plus Taco Hulk and Gamer Korg. I passed on the Captain America Snowman. I was very pleased to buy more Stuff I Don’t Need But Like, so I participated in holiday consumerism. Thanos now stands with Godzilla. Tried the hot fudge sauce at the Burn Your Tongue tasting. Yummy, but far too hot for me to actually eat in any quantity.
I did vacuum a bit, and I got the new rope lights up and the cords arranged. Swapped out the metal stars out front for the holiday stars. Edging closer to taking down the autumn decor. Problem is, I have to empty the Christmas bin so I have a place to store them. I need to do more laundry, and then begin packing. Write down some addresses so I can send post cards, I bought stamps after all. Will those do in place of holiday cards? YES!
