I've been revisiting my old blog Random is More than a Word, It's a Lifestyle, and was reminded of some of my past rants... I thought you might enjoy them, too.
(Note: I intentionally didn't capitalize anything in that blog. It was kinda my schtick. Woe is my younger self.)
while i can follow most kids' books, i'm having a really hard time with this series lately... could someone please explain to me how a mouse, who talks and dresses and lives in a house like people, can have a pet cat who's just a normal cat??
it really boggles my mind. and she runs a farm, too with a bunch of farm animals that live in a barn and eat hay and poop wherever they want just like normal farm animals. but she lives in a house and is potty trained and these other animals' lives depend on her?
i similarly always wondered why goofy, who seems to be a dog, can talk and walk upright and hiccup-laugh while pluto - also a dog - actually acts like a dog. poor thing doesn't even get to wear vests. what gives?
and speaking of animals in places where it doesn't really make sense... guess which website is home to these chubalubs:
if you guessed a christmas tree farm website, you're exactly right!
the place proved just as fantastic as the website promised... i mean come now - any christmas tree lot with horses to ride...
random hubcaps all over the place...
and these guys selling you your christmas tree...
count me in! as you can tell from the boy's proud "i just cut down my own christmas tree" stance, he was just as entranced.
(isn't he adorable??)
the fun had only just begun though. we went with our friends, who also cut down a good-size tree and we decided we could haul them both the several blocks home on a little red wagon.
i was very impressed that they only toppled over once and that was before we even started moving!
and since we were down one red wagon, we also decided to haul home three kids on one sled...
(note quincy's cat hat... see how nicely i'm threading the theme through the whole post?)
now that's what christmas is all about, charlie brown!
(isn't she a beaut?)
oh and don't forget...
