While I fully intended to post the pictures of snow, I've been out of town for the last week visiting various members of "my team" (doesn't that sound official?) in Oregon. Once you get past Portland, it's mostly fields and sheep. I did like the city of Corvallis, though. And Eugene is beautiful, although it does not contain a single non-one-way street within the entire city. A pain in the ass to drive if you don't know EXACTLY where you are going.

Currently, I'm in Dallas, TX, waiting for my boss and my boss' boss to show up. I'm so excited to spend the next two days with people I don't know and intimidate me grandly. Frinklin is home right now, putting up Christmas lights on our house. Walking the dogs around the neighborhood, we've see exactly two types of Christmas light displays; 1)Those that are not decorated at all, and 2) Those that are decorated so completely they prevent you from seeing the actual house on the other side of the light display. Is there no happy medium in Tacoma?

While our house will be subdued by this standard, I'm told we have way more lights than in previoius years. I was always a single strand of tasteful lights sort of girl, but enjoy the effect of icesicle lights. This year we have a light-up snowflake in the window, icesicle lights, and borders of other lights around the windows and doorway. I haven't seen it yet. I'm trying hard to trust Frinklin's judgement on this issue. I fear because my father-in-law is a BIG fan of covering every square inch in lights, and he is assisting with the light display.

Lastly, in this hodgepodge of random blogging, an experience Christmas shopping at a local store:

Frinklin and I purchase several CDs and wish the clerk Merry Christmas.

Clerk: Have a good Christmas. I hope it isn't too bad.

Me (to Frinklin): What did she just say? Isnt' that like saying "Happy birthday, hope it doesn't suck"?

I assume she's worked several retail holiday seasons and is just over it.

So--Merry Christmas to you all--hope it isn't too awful!
