Playing with Fire

Each year at Christmas I use the extra boughs cut from our tree to decorate the mantle. Instead of putting these in the garbage this year I decided to burn them one night when we had a fire going.

I was kind of amazed at the result. I mean I always knew that Christmas trees were extra flamable, but I wasn't expecting such a large flame.

If you work in a college residence hall and have a hard time explaining to your residents why they can't have live trees at Christmas here is your answer.

*Sorry it's sideways. Andy didn't realize that you couldn't turn the camera vertically while filming. You get the point though.*

I don't know why I got so excited about it. Andy kept telling me I was a little pyro. Then he said he wanted to hold one of the branches in his hand and light it with a match. At witch point I promptly freaked out and threw all the branches in the fire at once so he couldn't set himself aflame. Who's the pyro now?

Bonus Post! Two in one!

I didn't feel like this deserved a post of its own. What do you think about having an "ask me anything" day? I've been considering this, but didn't know if people thought I was interesting enough to ask questions.

But what they heck, let's do it!

Ask me anything (within reason). Leave a comment with your questions sometime this week and I'll answer all of them in a post on Saturday.
