- [Funny video] I found this yesterday but didn’t think it fit with my post – SNL was hilarious this weekend with Justin Timberlake hosting – check out his skits – D in a Box is my absolute favorite (warning: language may offend)
- [Wine tools] A very cool “Octopus wine aerator.” This will have to please the wine lover you know.
- [Terrible mistakes in comic books] I can’t believe they redesigned Betty & Veronica. I seriously am sad. It looks terrible.
- [A Menu for Hope] Don’t forget to donate. Remember, I just added two more items to my basket!
This weekend I only did three things: Bake, Read, and Walk through il Centro di Milano, the center of Milan.
We don’t have a Christmas tree at home this year, but I am surrounded by them! Which one do you like best? Are there any good Christmas trees around you?
This is the tree that is decorated at work. Though it’s not a pine tree, I like it because it uses a tree that is already part of our landscaping (multi-use and recycling is good) and it’s the first and last thing I see at the office so it helps improve my mood and remind me it’s the holiday season.
This is the tree the Comune di Milano provided (the City Hall-government) and it’s right in front of the Duomo which is very very ugly right now – since it’s still covered up, this is an excuse to use the “covered-up” space to display ads. I can’t wait until it gets back to normal. I feel a little snarky but the Comune tree is pretty scraggly and reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Poor tree. At least it’s got a nice backdrop.
Maybe my previous comments make more sense once you see this tree – this is the Swarovski tree, only a few meters from the Comune tree, decorated of course with Swarovski crystals and about a million lights, and if possible, an even better gilded backdrop. I feel for the Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
