I’m ornamental.

I don’t even know what that means.

But I’ll now distract you from the title by saying, “hey! look! here’s a picture!!”


It’s a new tradition. I’m going to photograph myself with each of my ornaments. Every year.

[Pause here to think about the ridiculousness of this idea.]

Nah, I’m kidding. Though the more I think about this, the less dumb it gets. I mean, that might be cool to have photo documentation of my ornaments in 2009. And then in 2010.

I. Must. Stop. Dumb-storming. [It’s like brainstorming. But with dumb ideas.]

The REAL purpose of this picture is for SheSeeks. I just wrote a new article about the importance of spray-painting macaroni.

And I’m not going to explain further because, mainly, I like leaving you with the thought that, “you mean Annie literally wrote about macaroni and it got published?”

Why yes, yes I did. Never underestimate the power of a good carb story, people.

    Pretty sure I’m adding “dumbstorming” to my vocabulary. That’s hilarious!

    I think it’s a great idea if you only do it with new ornaments every year. It would get kind of redundant and boring to take your picture with the same ornaments year after year.

    I’m just kidding, of course. On to read your story about macaroni.

    Dumb-storming. The catchphrase that is sure to take 2010 by storm.
