So. National Poinsettia Day! That's cool!

It's cool because I was going to go over and look at my super-secret source of cool holidays, but then I just went to Google and started typing in "December 12 is" and National Poinsettia Day automatically filled itself in, which was really handy. What's not cool is that I wanted to go get a picture of them to bring back and show you how pretty (and poisonous) they are, only they all. Looked. The same. Except for this one!!
It's a BLUE POINSETTIA. How cool is that?

It's blue-poinsettia-cool. That's what it is. Oh, and we just learned how to say poinsettia in Spanish: "la flor de Nochebuena." Which is actually, like, "the flower of goodnight," (literally), which sounds kind of threatening. Probably because the reason you're having a good night is because you aren't dreaming because you ate a poinsettia and now you're DEAD. That's why I'm kind of worried now.

But anyway. (Hope you're feeling better and less dead now! :D) (Also sorry for the poinsettia rant. Hope I didn't ruin everyone's National Poinsettia Day! Moral = don't eat poinsettias.)

So...today's WFTH are from the Rather Duh-Inspiring category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Wake me up when you faint." Waaaait....

"I don't think anyone has square eyebrows." What, am I not anyone? Sadness.

Person 1: "Why is it with a 'y'?"
Person 2: "'Cause I feel Swedish today." Aaaand...non sequitors are like rhinocerouseseseses: they both turn blue in the mornings.

"You don't throw away a trash bag!" Actually it has been done before. But only once, and no one got it on camera. It's like Bigfoot.

Your post made me smile.
What is it about Christmas that makes us want to surround ourselves with poisonous plants? Evergreen, poinsetta, mistletoe?

Eve S. D'ropper said...

It's just so much more festive that way.

Wait--mistletoe's poisonous?

And holly...weird! Plus this blue poinsettia is freaking me out!

Blake said...

Dude, mistletoe is THE poisonous Christmas plant. It's a lot more sinister than secret tonsil hockey, that's for sure.

Eve S. D'ropper said...

charli, do not be alarmed by the blue poinsettia. It (mostly) comes in peace.

Blake--lol. Just...lol.

La flor de noche burma- the goodnight flower perhaps it refers to the fact that in order to get the red color in time for Christmas the poinsettia must go through a series of locking away in darkness for 14 hours a day for 6weeks (usually bedtime hours) so that's y it is the goodnight flower. U gotta put it to bed each nite. Just food for thought.....poison free......
