Day 352 – Weird Christmas

I am always amazed at what weird Christmas stuff you can find.

This year, feathers seem to be popular…


Feather balls as modeled by Garbanzo.

Oh, and gigantic gems….which are Christmas-y because they are red?

Weird stuff aside, we did get the rest of our Christmas shopping done.  We went out for a quick dinner beforehand at a local pizza chain. Garbanzo ordered, and I decided to get the same so I told the guy taking our order. He made some smart ass comment to which I replied “well, I AM easy”.  I smiled at him as he struggled with his response.  Garbanzo responded something about “and THAT’S why we are together. Like I would have a chance if she wasn’t easy.”  I laughed – and the guy was just dumbfounded in that sort of OMG-I-can’t-believe-it sort of way.  We did get really good service after that.  Guess he was hoping his chance would be good.  He wasn’t bad looking. 😉

    Feathered balls… I wonder if the trend will ever take off… (get it? take off?)… 🙂 excuse my morning cheesiness.
    I love the way you made the men squirm, and that poor (yet lucky) guy serving you. I guess he wishes he could be serving you. (okay, I better stop before these horrible puns continue).

    Those feathers trees and balls are heinous, but if you were where I think you were, did you see the pretty feather wreaths? For some reason that works. 🙂

  3. I saw the big gems a few weeks ago and though the same thing. I haven’t seen any peacock feather stuff though. Maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. lol. Glad you got your shopping finished. Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. A friend once bought me a monkey in a leopard print trimmed Santa suit for Christmas. It is crazy what some people find. I think my moms outta her peacock phase else I’d be all over that tree!
