Re: PICTURE POST II!

Walk into a Big Lots store in July or August. Many of them already have Halloween and Christmas stuff stocked on the shelves.

^Whoa, come on, let's get through Halloween first! Geez! I saw Xmas trees at the mall while with my mom today. REALLY?!

I swear, if people want Christmas to come faster, they need to find a TARDIS. Now THOSE will be Christmas trees! (And snowmen, too!)
I don't want those snowmen...

Sheesh, even Michaels and Hobby Lobby don't have their Christmas trees out yet!
A friend of mine went into a Hobby Lobby in late July / early August, and they had their Christmas stuff out already. I was thinking it may have been one of those "Christmas in July" type sales, but no, the stuff was out permanently until Christmas!

Does anyone remember when stores would actually decorate and sell stuff for Thanksgiving?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

The store where I work doesn't have Christmas stuff out yet, but will soon enough. We were slammed last week because the university kids had descended upon the city and were buying bedding, kitchenware, electronics, and the like. Good for business, but it felt like the week before Christmas. This week's been calmer, thankfully.

Back in April I visited my dad just west of Toronto with my two sons. A friend of mine has her private pilot's licence, but she's been grounded for health reasons. However, she'd very kindly arranged for a flight instructor friend of hers to take my boys and me for a flight from Buttonville Airport, just north of Toronto. This photo is from when we literally circuited around the CN Tower. Normally I'm fine with flying, but four-seater planes set off my height nerve and vertigo and scare the crap out of me. There's no better way of getting a view of the city, though, and my boys loved it.

oh wow, that's really early for Christmas...
Here, we don't put up the Christmas decorations until 6th December due to a Dutch fest for children that is celebrated from half November until December 5th.

@theseeker: your daughter is very cute!

That was a good book. Hard to believe that it's been almost twenty years since he wrote it.

Perhaps Nimoy and Zach Quinto should collaborate on a new book:

Nice! I can't get over the fact that there are people out there (I know a few) who would willingly pay money to walk around the outside of the tower with nothing but a bungee cord keeping them from falling. When I took my ex up, it took me quite a bit of cajoling to get him to walk on the glass floor of the indoor observation deck (and that's engineered to withstand the weight of six elephants).
