Toyland

is the song stuck in my head right now. The tinny version of it, the one that comes out of the christmas musicboxes I used to have. A few of those are set out in my mother's yearly display of christmas kitsch scattered all over the house - she has an entire extra set of nicknacks to go on top of everything.

Last year I had my own little christmas tree (next to armoire), with cute miniature christmas ornaments, and a star on top that I'd gotten probably fifteen years ago in dance class. It stayed up until close to Mardi Gras, in typical local fashion. I had to throw the tree away when I cleaned out my house in a frenzy in 98 degree heat in September, terrified of the next time it would rain. There was nowhere for it to go, and besides, it cost me maybe ten dollars at Lowes, right?
