Anyone for a snowcone?
Christmas stuff in stores so early is wrong enough, but this is what I saw today and sort of thought it made it even a little more wrong. Or maybe I just have a twisted mind. Well. You'd have to have to keep a blog I guess.
I also saw some bird tree decorations that looked like they'd been hung from the neck, 'til dead. Was going to take a photo, but as I was reaching for the camera, a store person rounded the corner.
Apart from the wrong-looking things, I was very tempted by the shiny baubles in gorgeous colours. But I don't need more junk in my house. Instead, I went to the bookshop and bought four more Popular Penguins. Apparently those rumours about a second lot of 50 Popular Penguins may just be true, but we'll find out more in the next few months or something.
And then I head back home and the wrongness continues. There's a fire starting up not too far from home in bushland, which fortunately they managed to get under control in a few hours. And ladybirds were gettin' it on on the rose bush out the front of the house.
What a strange day.
