Got the tree yesterday evening, left it outside in the backyard (to be snowed on... sigh) overnight, wrestled it inside this afternoon, set it up, tested all the light strings (all ok), started to put them on the tree, got to the last string, and it crapped out. Changed the dinky fiddly little fuses, but no dice, it was dead. So, the tree is only partially lit and I have to go out tomorrow + get a new string — Jim and Stacy are coming over Tuesday night for the traditional tree-decorating Mai-Tais, and white bean chicken chili.

That's a pretty perfect tree though. Merry Christmas!
