About two weeks before the first of the month, we were wandering mindlessly around RiverCenter Mall downtown, and went into the music store there. They had a near-life-size cardboard cutout of John McCain, marked down to $5.
"I have to have that!"
Of course, we had no money right then. But my mother asked them if they'd hold it 'til after the first of the month. They agreed. We went back and bought it on the 4th of this month.

And then, one decides to put it in one's kitchen window, to hopefully freak out the neighbors. And since it is Advent, one puts a Santa hat on it:
(That's kind of a pull-back shot so as to prove I do indeed live in a trailer.)
The girls, by the way, love John.
