Monday's Match-up....

ok... so according to last week.... the general populous of readers here tend to lean towards the bread. Not saying that a good portion of you don't enjoy the red stuff.... just when push comes to shove... y'all want carbs. I personally would have had to vote for stuffing, too (or DRESSING... thanks, Carlotta). I don't think I've ever eaten cranberry sauce with the exception of having it spread on a chicken and brie pizza. (very good, btw... spread the cran sauce over a boboli or the likes... top with grilled chicken and brie cheese. Bake til cheese melts. perfect for an appetizer for a large group. yum!)


Anyways......... this week, I present yet another Holiday dilemma. LIGHTS.


In my unending quest to be the first recipient of the Nobel "getting Shit Done" Prize.... I started decorating the house for Christmas this past weekend. So far, things are coming together quite nicely. Tomorrow I plan on 'fluffing' the tree (it's a fake one and looks a bit mushed after being in a box all year) and hanging the lights.

Now I know how *I* want my lights to look.... but what gets YOUR chesnuts roasting??? This week... for fear of one of my relatives making a racially inappropriate comment... we'll leave the color of said lights up to you. What I really need to know is...


BLINKING

or

NON-BLINKING



Now if you're one of the three people who still have your bubbling lantern lights from the 50's.... you should just say Blinking, and go back to eating your TV dinners and waiting for the fire department to show up for your hazard-ridden tree.

so which shall it be, gang???? I find it utterly intriguing as to what really makes the season bright for you. Again... for your tree.. I don't care if you prefer colored or white lights.... I'm more curious if you're a blinker or solid-glow.

so without further ado....

ding, ding.....

BLINKING!

But not neurotically fast blinking.

I have lights that "fade" from one color to the next. That's how I like it ~ slow, methodical transition. Hmpf. Sounds like my life... LOL

Jessssuuuuussss. Non-blinking. You want me to start foaming at the mouth? Seizures and blinkies don't mix. Unless I'm throwing a family party. Then I'll put lots of blinking lights around so I can start randomly cursing at people like someone with Tourette's.

Definitley non-blinking.

No real reason, I just don't like the blinking ones.

Ahhhh- I love the holidays!

carrie-o! none! haha! we here are much more wild and use real, live fire. granted there are no trees or such. but often those candles are very near the wrapping paper. what can i say? we like to live dangerously!

holy shit, you've already got your tree up???? damn, girl!! I thought about it, but then thought better of it....didn't feel like fighting Garrett over it for 2 months rather than just 1!! LOL!!

anyways...I think mine are NON-blinking....I know they are white, but I sure don't remember if they blink.

I gotta say....I am a picky Christmas lights person. I like non-blinking, and all white.
How boring am I??

We just got one of those pre-lit trees last year to save the task of rigging up the damn lights. We got clear non-blinking. Of course our living room could now be used to land jets - but hooray! It's Christmas. So... non-blinking, glaring, migraine inducing, brighter than the sun, white lights.

I like non blinking. The blinkies are annoying after awhile. Although when I was younger my mom had a set of clear lights that blinked to 5 different Christmas songs that played from the tree branches. Those things kicked ass. You could turn the music down or off and just let the lights blink or you could just turn the music and blinking off all together. Which is usually the way those lights stayed, but while decorating the tree the blinking and music were nice touches. So with the exception of those particular lights. Non blinking gets my vote.

Christi said...

Absolutely, positively, NO BLINKING! And I only want white, please.
