festive idea

Googlin' miniature typewriter led to this festive idea:
How to Decorate an Intellectual Christmas Tree

Steps: 1. Buy a tree and set it up.
2. Put lights on it. Small white lights are perfect for an intellectual tree

If this seems challenging, then How to Make an Intellectual Christmas Tree Skirt is a concept just.too.abstract to understand.

Comments: festive idea

Noice, noice. I like the suggestion to decorate with grandad's old pipe and similar intellectul accessories.

What they don't explain is where to get an intellectual christmas tree in the first place. I don't think the Scouts sell those. I think you have to sneak onto Melbourne Uni's campus at 2am and cut your own from the garden beds outside the Bailieu.

Yes - or find a more densely stocked xmas-campus somewhere?
Ceci n'est pas un toy -- Grandad.

Think I'll stick with the thick-as tree, though I do like the thought of yarn ...

thanks Boynton for directing me to 'eHow'!- amazing what one may find from entering 'black labrador' in a search; and that Bookish Tree of theirs needs to be hefty to hold the weight of their suggestions toward the end.

ehow! sounds like something you'd yell if the smartypants tree fell on you...
Sounds like a handy curse actually

When I looked up ehow 'black labrador' I found:
"How to Clean a Dog's Ears: Tips From eHow Users "

So I searched ehow for how to swear:
How to remove Skunk Odor from your dog...
How to Sell Yourself to your Boyfriend/Girlfriend's family...
How to testify in a custody case...
etc etc.
