OMG, it’s December tomorrow

So, it’s December tomorrow. How, exactly, did that happen? Wasn’t it January just like 5 minutes ago? Looking at my calendar for the next month, I see that December will also be flying by, because I have an insane amount of things in my calendar, including:

Plus a variety of other meet ups with people I haven’t seen in ages and, you know, Christmas and New Year’s! Let the festivities begin!

  1. This is how you can tell that the 12 Bars of Christmas crowd has gotten old. []
  2. Where DDG = Drinks/Dinner with Dr. Girls – where me and my PhD grad school buddies get together to catch up []

O Christmas Tree

It’s December now, which means (a) WTF? How the hell did it get to be December already??, and (b) it’s totally legitimate that I put up my Christmas tree last night. Totally. Legit.

I took pictures even though it looks *exactly* like it did last year. Except that I now have a TV beside it1. That’s what we call “progress.”

Happily, the chili peppers that I put on my tree last year seemed to hold  up pretty well through a year of being in storage. While hanging on the tree, they dried out nicely, which seems to have preserved them well. Two looked a bit icky, so I tossed them, but the rest were in fine shape.

Also, I already have some presents, which I picked up from my family when I was in Montreal, under my tree:

A little bird told me that some presents are winging their way towards me, so there will be more to put under the tree soon!

I still feel like I don’t have enough ornaments. Maybe I’ll get creative and make a few more this month!
