For The Rest of My Life...

My winter holiday decorations will include lighted, glowy penguins.

So much for my trademark understated elegance.

I guess I can live with this. :)

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

Excellent! I love penguins and have never been much for "understated elegance," though. Have you noticed that penguins only recently became part of American "holiday" iconography, like within the past five years? It's a change for the better, I think. :-)

I must have those! Where did you get them?!?!

I love penguins. They are my daughter's favorite and always, Always, ALWAYS make me think of her!

As I clicked on the link to your blog tonight, I thought "How odd that Pobble lives only 3 hours of me now." Someday we will meet I think.

Hope your holiday season is as lovely as you are.

Yeah...I have garland around more door that's as gaudy as gaudy can be...seriously. But then again I live in a residence hall so I'm allowed to be gaudy.

They look pretty fabulous to me!

I dig penguins, especially those which light up. HO, Ho, ho Pobble. I just strung my lights yesterday.

I could send the gnomes over to redecorate for you if you want. The thing is though that they have no concept of the word elegance. Besides, I think they are kinda cute and reflect your fun side.

I LOVE the penguins!!!

Of all the totems, penguins have I never seen. I wonder what advice a penguin totem would give. "Just sit on it and everything will be fine... metaphorically speaking"? "Go with the floe"?

It bears some thought.

Krystal said...

I did a search. Here is what it said about penguins as a totem.

Penguin - symbol of Order, Agility, Out of body experiences, Ability to change reality
Penguin is a bird who uses his wings as fins and does not fly. He is a fluid, graceful swimmer.

Penguin's ability to jump from the water and land on its feet symbolizes the ability to 'change planes' (or realities) easily. Water is a symbol of the astral consciousness, and is an important symbol in the dream dimension.

Penguins move in a very orderly fashion. If your life feels chaotic, Penguin can teach you to replace chaos with order.

Agility, order and the ability to move through the various dimensions of life are the valuable lessons you might expect to learn from Penguin.

If Penguin is your totem, you are probably a vivid dreamer who receives messages while in the dream state.

Krystal, in your debt. Thanks for doing that, sincerely. I hope Penguin speaks to you tonight.

CrackerLilo ~ As a general rule, I adore penguins as well. I'm adjusting to them as holiday deoration. But if they mean having Lithus this happy, I'll take penquins. :)

Jersey ~ There is a store out here called Fred Meyer. LOVE THEM. You should come visit just so I can take you to a Freddies. However, they are also owned by the Kroger family so maybe you can find them back east?

Traci ~ It is odd to think we are so close, isn't it?

Dreamer ~ Ah yes, the gaudiness of the college dorm. :)

Cam Pike ~ And fabulous they are. They are also a far cry from The Library on Beacon, however.

Wolfgrrrl ~ Dance, my friend!

$$ ~ I admit, I had never seen penguins that light up. I do, however, believe I am becoming biased in their favor. Ho ho ho to you as well.

Pharmyard ~ Well, there is that. :)

Krystal ~ They are cool little creatures, aren't they?

GOML! ~ Or perhaps "If we all snuggle up together, the winter will seem warmer." At least, that's what I hope they would say.

Krystal ~ Very, very cool. Thanks.

GMOL! ~ And there you go. May you too be visited by penguin.

CrackerLilo ~ Oooooo! You know I love a tag. Do you realize that you tagging the Mad Gay Housewife all those years ago is what brought us together? Thanks.

I've heard of Kroger but have never actually seen one. In my front yard, I have 2 penguins, one bigger than the other. The big one has a santa hat on, and he stands next to the smaller one. I adore penguins.

I do need to visit. And you need to visit here. The holiday party isn't til January 3rd this year, so there's still time!!
