Okay, that's the last of the "specifically drawn to be annoying" posts. There are still a few digital notes lined up for this week, but they are regular weird as opposed to desktop-clutter weird.
As a palate-cleanser, here are a few pictures from our first "Fishmas" celebration.
We've had Chintzy Blue, our belovedly-tacky Christmas tree, for almost a decade now, but in 2015 we finally decided to use its color to full advantage and adopt an underwater theme for our holiday decor. I handmade the starfish tree topper, which, while thematically appropriate, isn't quite as fun as either the "dead Harry Potter angel" I previously made out of cut paper, or the "Dr. Wily with floating coat action" figurine we used for the first few years.

This note was motivated by my husband's response in this GameCola article, as well as his current playthrough of Tomb Raider 3.
I asked my husband what he wanted for a note, and he said "something aesthetically pleasing." I translated that to mean "anatomically inaccurate mermaid."
What? You want a bad Wolverine joke? Well I aim to please...
Does no one else think of these things? I'm playing as a cat, who is wearing armor made from fish-people. It's obviously food.
My husband and I watched A Fish Called Wanda for the first time a few months ago. I was kind of scarred by the live-fish-eating scene.
My husband and I sat down last year to watch the first season of Squid Girl on Netflix. It's super-cute, doesn't take itself too seriously, and is chock-full of puns. While it doesn't have the most inventive or introspective plot line, it is great casual fluff entertainment.
