it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

When I woke up this morning I sensed there was something different. What was it? The apartment was the same as always (I haven't ferried that much stuff to my new place yet). No smoke. No odor of death. Pinched myself--nope, not dreaming. Went upstairs, showered, went online. Hmm.

It wasn't until half an hour later, when I casually looked out the window, that I OMG SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

Also: almost overnight, a humongous Christmas tree (the size of a five-story apartment building) appeared in the middle of South Seaport, heavy with bells and ribbons. I was going to take a picture of me pointing to it and running away and screaming, as if it were Godzilla, but I decided that five blocks of the WTC site it might not be the most sensitive thing to do.

If my trial version of Paint Shop Pro hadn't expired, I'd put a Santa hat on my LJ icon.
