Now I want to play flying mouse quidditch

Mouse 1, coming in for a landing!

Tonight I thought about joining Winter's Bare Rose challenge and got distracted by trees (these trees). Wait, I think the story started last night when I went to visit Violet in her redesigned shop. It's got a neat upside-down room, and this room had brilliantly-colored feather-leaved Christmas trees. "Those are the ones Allegory's been making," I said, pondering that I've been under a rock for several days with my conference stuff. Tonight, hopping blearily into SL after two presentations, I realized that I should go wake myself up with something bright.

I experienced one of those surreal moments when I mounted a ChristMouse and watched it fly over an old motel. Yeah ... if SL is a cartoon brought to life, I felt as though I'd just entered the Nutcracker by Tim Burton section.

Then, I saw bright trees. Very bright! Orange ones, purple, blue...all made out of pretty feathers. They reminded me immediately of the kinds of trees I've seen in Thailand at Christmas time -- "Christmas colors" are very loosely defined over there (or really, not defined at all). I've always wanted a chartreuse feather tree!

I like the big 'SHIT' in the background. So Christmassy, heh.
