Puts a Spring in Your Step

Thanks to Bmad for putting me on to this wonderful little video. I believe it might be an ad for a Belgium "Maria" competition but I'm not 100% sure. In any case, watch until the end and enjoy. It's definitely a sunny start to the day (especially for those of us who LOVE musicals).

Don't use this to intimidate people

For Christmas I gave J a rather unique candle arbre by Studio Glithero. It is a candle arbre completely made of wax. Theoretically you can burn the entire thing. The piece looks rather gothic. Take this rather gothic candle arbre and add our over-the-top contemporized barroque (J's description) wallpaper and our bedroom is taking on a slightly weird look. See below..

So I figured how better to hang said candle arbre was with black curtain tie-backs knotted using a noose. A noose? Yes, a noose. (rather morbid I know)
I needed to figure out how to tie a noose knot given I've never needed one before. So, where better to look than the interweb and even better than Google, I checked Youtube as I figured I would need a video explanation. Within seconds I found 100s of 'how to' videos on noose knot tieing. The one that I ultimately used was the one below. My teacher made it very clear "DO NOT USE THIS TO INTIMIDATE PEOPLE" ... you heard me.
