I need to win the lottery so I can buy a house and decorate it in a gaudy fashion for the Holidays. Cruising through the channels I again happened upon Home Shopping Network, a channel I almost never watch, and got snagged by yet another Christmas lawn ornament that had me drooling. This time it was one of those light-up inflatable decorations that have become so popular the last couple of years. This one featured Santa, a Snowman in a snow globe, and Christmas tree all in one big decoration. What sold me on it, though, is the fact that the snowglobe blows little white balls around inside it to make it look like the real thing. That pushed my gimmick geek button hard and I sat here for several minutes watching them talk about it on HSN. Damned thing costs $100, but that’s why I need to win the lottery. I really have to quit stopping on this stupid channel.
Can’t really see the snow effect in the still picture here, but it was way cool.
