Have yourself a Green Christmas

Well now, I bet you think that I am going to get all environmental and start spouting words like global warming, conservation and hybrid. Well, no. Not that I am opposed to those things- not at all. I just don't do them. I would love a hybrid car, but not until there is one that never needs to be charged because I would forget to do that and then get stranded somewhere. Remember I am the girl who killed 4 hairdryers this year. I have helped those landfills a lot. And I'm not 100% sure about this, but something tells me that there is something in those that contributes to global warming.
But, I digress. This post is about my favorite color. Yes, very superficial of me. In my hunt for a new hairdryer, it took three tries to find one that actually dried this mane on my head. Coincidentally, the new dryer is green. I love it. I am hoping that this guy doesn't have a rather quick demise. I promised him a date with a hot curling iron if he behaved. (Ha! I totally just came up with that on the spot)
Then, yesterday Mike and Parker went out to do some Christmas shopping. You will never guess what they came home with. One of these: Oh my goodness gracious. It's a dream come true. However, I have never in my life felt more technologically retarded. I am realizing how far technology has come while I apparently stood still. I am trying to figure out how to get stuff on this little thing. I am in the process of putting the 200 or so CDs on the thing and we all know how impatient I am. I think that (in my mind) it would all just come with my type of music on it. But, no pain no gain. I am not complaining. I love the thing.
In other green news, I have a green tree, green ornaments adorning my trifle bowl in the kitchen, an adorable green cupcake ornament, and cute green christmas towels in the kitchen as well. Life is good and green. Just not the good kind of green, but that will be our little secret.
