And our decoration is from the Seeing Things Blog, which is amazing
You'll have to go get the directions there.
I hate weather. Last night the forecast was that predicted snow wouldn't hit the Portland area after all, so I was v. v. unhappily surprised this morning. It took almost twice as long as usual to commute to work, though luckily that was more due to traffic moving very slowly than to accidents along the route - but conditions were noticeably worse the closer I got to the office. There are no kids (staff training day) and I think there are maybe three of us in the building. One coworker came in a bit ago - it had taken her four hours to commute from her home in Battle Ground! I'm really glad I didn't face that, as I would probably have turned around and gone home. As there are no kids, I'm seriously contemplating leaving work around 4:00, while it's still light.
At the first of the week I was rather surprised that The Cheese and her elves didn't immediately descend to decorate the lobby area, as is their wont immediately after Thanksgiving. Because I'm not an idiot, I kept my mouth shut. However, on Thursday, Em asked me if anyone had mentioned it, and then coincidentally within an hour she'd received a directive from The Cheese that she needed to get on that pronto (obvi, she should have kept mum) - so, she drafted a couple of folks and got the area dressed up for the holidays. Now I guess I should dig out my box o' festive headgear and pick out a few to wear the last few days before the winter break.

Christmas Spirit: World’s Largest Gingerbread House (site design in crappy - you have to scroll halfway down the page for photos)
"Everything is bigger in Texas." Thanks to a group of A&M Traditions Club members and volunteers, that saying now includes gingerbread houses too. Behold the World’s Largest Gingerbread House. Measuring an awesome 39,201.8 cubic feet, it’s the size of real house and it really is made of gingerbread. This press release describes the house and beneficiary of admission fees.

Don't some of the photos appear as though you’re looking at the edge of the world?

Leave a comment with a title and I will talk about why.
Almost a year ago, I put up a post about my genderbent Slave Leia costume. I talked a lot about why I decided to create it and my insecurities around exposing myself on the internet. It got a little more attention than I expected, and when I was finished hiding under my bed, I started wearing the costume to cons and costume parties. I thought I’d share some of my frightening and enlightening experiences here.
Last week I talked about my experiences going to conventions in less than conventional dress, but I left the account of my being fondled brief as I thought it deserved its own discussion. This is that discussion, and it comes with what is becomming a distressingly boilerplate trigger warning.
