the christmas tree: the brawny man of trees.

the other day i was listening to the radio - you know, the station that plays christmas music for 3 months out of the year and the rest of the year plays a lot of mariah carey and air supply - and i heard the song, 'it's beginning to look a lot like christmas.'

now, i can be somewhat particular about christmas music (is anyone else entirely creeped out by 'baby it's cold outside'?  and does anyone else get an itchy trigger finger when they play 'the christmas shoes'?  no? just me then?)  but i've never had much of an aversion to this song - until i heard it with new ears.  did you know there's a line in there that goes, "there's a tree in the grand hotel, one in the park as well, the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow"?

uh... you mean the sturdy kind of tree that doesn't mind... being outside?

you're right. i hate those stupid wuss trees that sit inside all day when it's cold, and when they have to go outside (because smoking's not allowed in their apartment) they stand there and smoke their cigs and drink whiskey and cuss at the snow.  those trees are the worst.
