    We started potty training our daughter over the weekend. She was running around the house commando style the whole time. Excitement has never made me so nervous. Farts have never been so scary.

    The only thing I hate worse is those stupid laser-on-the-side-of-your-house deals. Despise those. Half because I'm an irrational Scrooge and half because I was once landing at MSP and looked out my window only to be blinded by one. Fuck that ****. Should be a felony to own one.
    Quite a few in my area have inflatable displays. I often walk the dogs at around dawn, and it tickles my Scrooge heart to see them lying deflated face-down on the frozen ground. The Night wins out once again.

    Good idea. Unfortunately not many of the neighbors join in my immediate area. There are a decent number of the inflatables dx hates around though. X^D

    Maybe I’ll ask around though. It’s possible no one is putting them up for the same reasons.

    Some of these skeleton decorations aren't inflatables, they're plastic/metal. My miniature ones are as well.

There are a lot of things my back has robbed me of this year and honestly it’s pretty damn depressing.

    I'm an old and I don't matter though.

    Otoh.... same principle




    Edit: I'm talking about the 15-foot tall ones that form a wall around some houses now. Every time I walk into costco or menards it's just a wall of seasonal tackiness. blech.
    The skeletons I’m thinking of aren’t inflatables.

    LOL, god, I'm just complaining about janky *** GDO. I can't even imagine having a $2M house and having to look at the Macy's thanksgiving parade every time I drive by. COuld be even worse since they can afford that lol.

    Ugh, that blows. Sorry to hear that.... :-(

    I'm all for lights. I think lights are amazing. Been wanting to do the same but i'd want a nice fiberglass ladder and that's just not in the budget right now. Plus my fear of heights.... Either way. I think they can look really cool and brings a nice touch to the neighborhood.

    There's a line though. I don't want CHevy Chase setting up and pointing 2.5 million lumens at my bedroom window.

    My neighbor has 3-4 human-sized ones, including a dog skeleton. They're amazing. I went the other way and got like 20 15" skeletons. Next year I plan to double that count and get a larger one and do a big setup where the little guys are fighting the big guy.

    Somebody in my area has it up, posed such that it looks to be hanging their Xmas lights.
