dear blog: blog blog blog
As a result of my duties as a Technology editor at Suicide Girls, a fiercely proud representative of Team PokerStars, and writing for The Onion AV Club and writing for CardSquad, I find myself without a whole lot of free time right now. When I do find some free time, I'd rather spend it with my family than with The Interets, and that means less time blogging.
I thought about that, as I walked Ferris Berris and Riley Monster this afternoon: I've had such a fabulous time blogging about whatever here in Exile, I don't want to let regular posts fall down to once or twice a week. It's easy to fall into this trap where I think everything I write here has to be so fucking important and meaningful . . . I am always on the verge of taking myself a little too seriously, and that's just not what this is all about.
To keep perspective, and to keep blogging fun, I'm going to see how putting up whatever the hell I feel like works out for me, starting with this, which I found earlier today at boingboing:
Replica of Charlie Brown's Xmas tree
Urban Outfitters is selling a replica of the "pathetic" Xmas tree Charlie Brown took home in A Charlie Brown Christmas:
The tree is an exact replica of the tree from the famous cartoon, made of wire branches and plastic needles with a criss cross wooden base. The bendable branches allow you to make it look just how you want, super pathetic or just kind of pathetic. The tree comes with one red Christmas ball ornament.
