So. Does anyone remember the katydidnot versus karla with a k bitch slap? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? The tariff bill? The Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act? Bueller? Anyone?
katydidnot remembers! Okay. Good. For the rest of you: That particular bitch slap resulted in a new line of clothing and gave
us me someone else to be all snarky about for, like, ever.
So. I did not see this coming, but Jenn, who is a fellow San Diego Blog Bitch, brought it. And now? Jenn has to answer.
But upon closer inspection? Jenn’s tree puts Cheri’s tree to shame. So? This is where I have to take this mother apart point by point, katydidnot versus karla with a k-style.
Jenn has ornaments that came from years of a traditional exchange with another family.
Cheri has ornaments that came free with a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation DVD and a Polly Pocket doll.
Jenn has handmade dough ornaments made from ideas found in Family Fun and Good Housekeeping.
Cheri’s handmade ornaments are made from toilet paper rolls, aluminum foil, and cotton balls.
Jenn’s ornaments are seasonally themed (by season Jenn means holiday): “Snowmen, Snow Babies, and Santas.”
Cheri’s ornaments are seasonally themed (by season Cheri means television): “SpongeBob, I Lucy Lucy, and The Simpsons.”
The very placement of Jenn’s ornaments are remarkable too. Each ornament is hung on its own branch, evenly spaced, and is aesthetically pleasing. Jenn probably hung them all by herself, or, if she got help, it was from children who could reach higher than three feet and had actual attention spans.
The very placement of Cheri’s ornaments are remarkable too. Laura was very excited to help Cheri. Laura put all the cheesy, decrepit, fake, lead-paint-coated, Bisphenol-A-plastic apples on one low branch, warned Cheri within an inch of her life not to move the apples because “they’re supposed to be like that,” and then wandered off . . .
But Cheri’s tree and Jenn’s tree both have handmade ornaments, red bows, and white lights.
That’s the same, right?
Jenn – 1, Cheri – 0
