this is the dumbest idea ever

Holiday Joy:

One of my roommates and I had a revelation: what if we bought a crap load of tacky Christmas decorations and covered our apartment in them? Short drive across town and a hundred dollars later, we had some bows, a couple hundred feat of garland, a six foot fake tree, one thousand indoor lights, and a light up Santa Claus of such poor quality, you wonder if the painter was blind and suffering from a motor dysfunction.

We quickly decorated our apartment before our other roommate woke up. We now have what I hope -- for the sake of humanity -- is the most tacky and shoddily done Christmas decorations, ever. It looks like a mix between a rave and a cheap roadside Christmas amusement, implemented by the most tasteless individuals the world knows. But, you know, it is really cool to watch TV now in the dark with all of our slick Christmas decorations, tree, and lights.

Oh. We also got "Air Supply Sings Christmas," an unbeatable CD deal for only $6. Highly recommended.

Happy Holidays!
