2. It's October. I don't have my Halloween stuff out. I have a Christmas tree. It's white. I can explain! It was on sale for $39 and I thought for that price, if the trend doesn't resonate with me next year, what the hell. And the white tree with the blue lights is going to look damn fine in my girly living room. I only set it up to make sure I didn't hate it, it's not in my living room presently.
3. I had to get Napoleon a new collar, and since dogs are color blind and all, I got my favorite color. I also sprung for a nice one with his name embroidered on it and my phone number so he's not making that little jingle all night long as he wanders the house solving the world's problems and patrolling for nefarious squirrels. He seems unimpressed by the gesture.
