However, that afternoon, during one of many daily phone calls I learned that Mister's definition of "live" and my definition of 'live' vary greatly. I discovered this when I asked him if he had gotten a nice pot for the Christmas tree (we cant have it in one of those nasty plastic things). His response (according to my recollection): "what do we need a pot for?? Its not like we can plant it."
me: "What??!?! I thought you got a live tree"
Mister: "I did get a live tree"
me: "Well then in needs a pot with soil for its roots"
Mister: "I don't think the cut tree will root in a pot"
me: "What?!?!?! I thought you said you bought a live tree??"
Mister: "I did - its a live tree that has been cut"
me: "Umm...if the tree has been cut then its dead"
Needless to say we realized that we should have clarified our understanding of "live" before his trip to the nursery. Oh well, at least the thing was organically grown and we can always get a live tree next year!
more soon (obviously because its almost Christmas and I need to get it together)

4. I really like food. I have a hard time understanding people who diet and/or don't eat. Food is just too fantastic to limit. There are only 2 things I really dislike. One is mayo (although I eat tuna salad, egg salad, etc - I just cant have plain mayo - yuck). The second item is split pea soup (totally random, right?). I always try to see if my taste buds have changed their minds but apparently they still really dislike split pea soup.5. I live with my boyfriend in a little apartment. He likes food too. (see him cooking pasta, isn't he cute)

Anyway, my first thought was the Tree. My oldest Christmas tree memories involve various live trees that my parents would schlep into the house during December and schlep out sometime in January. Eventually these trees would get too big and we have to be planted somewhere in our yard and replaced with a new live tree. So I am totally used to the live tree idea. However I found out that my Boyfriend aka Mister was traumatized when i suggested we get a cute organic Rosemary bush shaped like a Christmas tree....he wants a real tree. So then I thought what about the Christmas tree program run by Friends of the Urban Forest in San Francisco where they deliver a live tree, come pick it up, then plant it in the city somewhere - sounds amazing right?? Well apparently that wont work either because if you notice they do not have any pine tree options and we cant just have any tree as our Christmas tree. Good lord.
to be cont...
