More fugliness...

When decorating for the holidays, these people were thinking:

"Why should home owners be the only ones with unsightly lights? Apartment complexes can be hideous, too, damnit."

"We are patriotic maniacs with a love for miniature snowmen and randomly dispersed rope lights. Let's share our joy with the world."

"Christmas is the time of year when I embrace my inner barber."

"I can't decide. Just use them all. BUT - be sure to leave a random bald spot on the lawn. We don't want to be obnoxious."

"Everything in the 'Christmas Lights' box is going up. Regardless of whether it works. And, no, I don't plan to ever look at it, so I'll never know."

"The deer's main food source is luminous ground squirrel droppings. And I won't have this phenomenon of nature go unrecognized at the holidays."

"No one will unload their RV shitter into our gutter if our house doesn't look *just* like the Griswalds. And that is something I can not bear."

"We couldn't make our candy canes crooked enough on the ground, so we had to take to the sky for maximum crookedness."

"We have a dead tree stump and want everyone to know about it."

"This is the only shape I can make with rope lights."

"You can only be so heinous with static lights and I will not be restrained."

More soon - cheers.


  1. Rope lighting is an affront to good taste, bad taste and everything in between. I HAVE seen in wrapped around a go-go dancer to good effect, but it was 1994 and I was really wasted.

  2. Yeah, baby! Unleash the fugliness! What in the world were these people thinking? There should be a penalty on their electric bill for "misuse of public utilities."

    Great quotes, BTW. I'm particularly fond of the deer's luminous food source.

  3. Steven - Don't tell my neighbors that they can wear rope lights.

    Shelley - Misuse of public resources? That is awesome and I will inform them that their citation is forthcoming.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
