Holiday-season

Reasons the aliens might think we’re strange

“It’s the coldest time of year!  I’ve just killed one of the biggest forms of plant life on my planet – a rather small specimen, mind you; one that fits in a car – and brought it inside my home.”

“I will now hang various things of an aesthetically pleasing nature on it, and employ technology that makes it look like it’s burning with oddly-colored embers.”

“I will nail footwear over the house’s heating station.  I will put food and small luxury items in the footwear.”

“I will play music that, at any other time of year, would make me plug my ears and screech.”

“I will consume a liquid made of eggs, sprinkled with something that is hallucinogenic in high doses.  I will not use a high dose.  But I may add a mild poison, for recreational purposes.”

“I will sit with my egg-drink next to my simulated forest fire while the restricted music plays, and remark that this is my favorite time of year.”

“Then a month from now the tree will have been taken by the garbage collectors, and I’ll be complaining that the weather is cold and I can’t wait for springtime already.”

just, spread some holiday cheer. smile at strangers on public transport. put $5 toward the next person’s groceries. shout a co-worker a coffee. be patient, gracious and kind. little things can make a big difference especially at this time of year

Last week was our third anniversary - I can’t believe it’s been three years already! Unlike last year, we were together this time (the pains of long distance relationships across borders!) so I wore something pretty to go out for dinner and drinks with my Moosh. We look some photos in Cubbon Park before the light faded and then strolled over to Social for cocktails and the arguably the best poutine in Bangalore. I felt rather festive in my burgundy velvet skirt and snowflake stockings from Tabbisocks - ‘tis the season after all! The best thing about anniversaries around Christmas is how joyous and festive everything is all around. I might post some photos from our Christmas celebrations later - we managed to dish up a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings but forgot to get any pics of it! In the meantime, I hope y’all are having a joyous, restful and much needed winter break ♥
