Last weekend we brought our Christmas box up from storage. We unfolded all 3 feet of our fake plastic tree (since we’re not allowed real ones in our building) and setup various kitschy decorations around the house. I came across the Ralphie [imdb] doll my mom gave to me last Christmas. Complete with bunny suit and B.B. gun, if you push a button on his back he spews out such classic lines as “Oooooohh fuuuuuuuuudge” and “be sure to drink your Ovaltine? A crummy commercial?” This reminded me of a gift John received before moving here. Another action figure doll of sorts that also spits out funny little sayings. I don’t know if it was the twinkle of the lights on the tree or the giddyness of the season but John and I got a little crafty. I’m not sure how proud we are, but man, those couple minutes of complete insanity were just plain fun.
