Christmas Clip O' the Day | No Comment Necessary.

I know the whole point of me putting these clips on Blogger instead of Facebook was so I could comment, but... for this one, it feels like words would be gilding the lily.

Hmmm... Let's see. When I lived in NYC while in high school (and early college), my Mom clipped Calvin and Hobbes from The Oregonian and mailed a stack to me each week. When I lived in Olympia, WA my boyfriend at the time worked at a sign and trophy shop and would regularly misappropriate office equipment, so I own an 8.5 x 11 etched silver color plaque of Calvin sort of marching happily while singing a Christmas carol.

I dump (donate) so many things because of my pseudo feng shui attitude toward stuff.  Especially post-break-up.  If a thing hurts to look at, or even just reminds me of stuff I'd rather forget, I pitch it.  The thing is infested with bad energy, I tell myself.  But Calvin survived the "heartbreak cut" all those years ago.

It turns out some things are indeed sacred to me.

(It's Christmas, let's not debate whether the clip above should or should not exist, let's just take it in the spirit intended).

I'll try to shoot a cell phone photo of my silver Calvin later, until then, here's this:
