Greetings all! It has been a while since my last posting and for that I do apologize. I will also try to get some wedding pictures on here soon. :)


The recent coupling of myself with another has made this holiday season all the more special as I was finally able to put up my own family Christmas tree. This matter was complicated, however, by two trouble making kittens lovingly known here to for as the Wasabi Bros. The Wasabi Bros, you see, have a great affinity for climbing trees and on that joyous day that was the day my newly minted wife and I finished tasseling our last branch and sickling what few sickles we had, they struck.

Oh sweet baby Jesus did they strike. It was so bad that we actually considered just throwing out the tree but after a few hours with a pair of needle nose those cats squealed like bottlenose dolphins the tree was back to working order with the only major casualty being the complete shattering of our angel's face. We searched far and wide for a replacement head to no avail. It was on this sweet and sour precipice of failure, when my wife and I believed that all hope had been extinguished, that I found my solution.

Totally epic. I'm sure Jesus would approve.

Wel, looky, looky, Rhett just created himself a new smilie. Too bad about the angel's face. Now, did you call them the Wasabi brothers b/c that's what you served them up with after the initial fiasco. :xp:

I <3 you Rhett :D

EDIT: This tree would kick your tree's ass:

Well, unless your tree has good enough reflexes to dodge when it blinks.

(The tree isn't that great, not enough lights and not enough ornaments to be honest.)

Looks like a pretty Christmas Tree!

But if you look closer.....

It's 100% pure Hallmark Star Wars! What makes this tree special, is that I have never purchased a single ornament for this tree. All of them have been gifts. Last year when I took the tree down I had exactly 84 Star Wars ornaments. This year who knows...

That's actually incredibly awesome, Grooves. I guess your friends know what you like :D

My tree might not be very geeky, but at least it's real Scandinavian pine, from the forest, not those measly plastic thingys:
