    My dear old Dad used to kid my Christmas-crazy wife that he was going to make a bunch of flag-themed ornaments so she could keep the tree up until the 4th of July….

    Tomorrow morning I shall wiggle my nose and blink my eyes and everything Christmas will be back in their rubber maids put away in the basement and the house will be cleaned. Ahh yes nice to be magic.

    One year, out of curiosity to see how long the tree could last, I kept it up until Valentine’s day. I found strings of valentine lights at Target, and added them to the tree. My husband was mortified, and the kids were starting to get a little uncomfortable with it too. So, it was also an interesting social experiment. I shoulda applied for a governement research grant or something.

    SOME night I’m going to plink my way across town….

    Head Missy SondraK & youz Porch Minkees have given me a
    wunnerful episode for a moobee I wanna develop the plot for.
    It’s about a hysterical safety-nazi wimmin that memorizes every
    safety precaution on every label & in every publication & on TV.
    Then she spends most of her time practicing all those safety
    ‘rules’ & drives her fambly bonkers. Then she goes out & recruits
    a buncha other wimminz to do the same insane, obsessive,
    hysterical, screaming, psychotic safety ‘episodes’ day & night.
    The Christmas tree fire & safety hazard can be a goldmine of
    ideas. Plus Santa, chimney, reindeer, roof collapsing, etc.
    Intended to make Code Pink look very sane & normal.

    Trees stay up ’til Three Kings–January 6th.
    Tell the kiddies to get the facts or shut the fuck up.
