A Reason Not To Decorate For The Holidays

Image
I have a very lovely Christmas tree. The first year I had George, I didn't put up my tree because all of my ornaments are glass and I was pretty sure she would destroy them. I would have been really, really upset. Probably to the point where I'd have to discipline her and we all know I'm not capable of that.

A few years went by and I bought a little 3 foot high tree and put tiny, plastic ornaments on it. Ornaments that I caught her snagging off the tree with her teeth. Ornaments that I found in various corners of the house for months afterwards.

This year, I decided to go really simple. I got some gel clings and put them up on my bathroom mirrors.

The day after I put them up, I found one of the bows on the bathroom floor. The present itself was no longer on the mirror nor anywhere to be found. The bow was covered in cat hair but, to be fair, so is everything in my house.

The day after that, I found the present on the bathroom floor. With even more cat hair on it.

But, wait…

Nerd Trivia

We had our team Holiday lunch this week. It was loads of fun. We played Holiday tunes, ate too much food, did a White Elephant gift exchange and played what I called Nerd/Pop Culture Trivia.

I made up the questions which made one of my co-workers happy as he believes I'm a trivia savant and didn't want to play against me. I am so his fears are well founded.

There were 65 points possible and I tried to gear the questions so that there was something that everyone could answer regardless of age and nerd level. I got bashed for not having any Star Wars questions but my rebuttal is that I still haven't forgiven George Lucas for those three horrible movies. Any man who gives us Jar-Jar Binks is dead to me.

Here are the questions if you want to try it:


1.  Name all of the primary Captains in the Star Trek series. (actor or character names accepted) 1 Point per correct answer, 5 Points possible

2.  What colors were the original Power Rangers? 1 Point per correct answer, 5 Points possib…
