Hey Christmas Tree… a Poem.

trees

Hey Christmas Tree
Oh Christmas Tree
You seem real nice
Come inside with me
I’ll keep you away
From stray dog pee

Oh Christmas Tree
Hey Christmas Tree
We just met
But follow me

I’ll keep you warm
Here by the fire
You can help me watch
That show, the Wire
And every movie
About the Baggins’ Shire

Hey Christmas Tree
Hi Christmas Tree
It’s pretty cold
Now come with me
I’ll pay 40 bucks
Plus a tie down fee

I’ll keep you here
When your needles fall
I won’t cut you down
If you’re too tall
I’ll vote for you
When you’re on idol

Hey Christmas Tree
Hi Christmas Tree
Get in the trunk
You’re coming with me

We’ll be best friends
Just wait and see
Just don’t ask about
After Jan. three
You don’t want to know
Where you will be
So let’s watch Die-Hard
One, two and three

Hey Christmas Tree
Oh Christmas Tree
You’re green and sappy
Now you live with with me

This Week! We talk about the Secret history of Christmas Trees with a Cat in a Tree!

​Winter is Always Coming

It’s that time of year when I add yet another blanket to the bed. The same time of year I try to figure out a way to live my life from under these comforting comforter blankets.

I usually don’t think of any reasonable solution aside from finding a crazy rich lady. One who thinks I’m adorable when I’m wrapped in blankets and does everything in her power to keep me there and happy. Kind of like all those memes about how to “keep your woman happy”.
Sure I’d get bored of it like the meme-women do. The winter months, however, would be pure bliss though. Pure bliss and hot apple pie from the grocery store(I assume)

The other option is to set up all the gear for my YouTube Morning show in my bedroom. Just wake up and say, “Morning Everybody!” Then talk about how great it is to be a blanket-person. Then complain about how difficult it is to get food delivery people to come to your bedroom.
Of course interviewing the delivery people that ARE willing could be fun, until I realize they steal from me. It’s just a fact that everything in the next room would be fair game. A real good-news/bad=news situation.

Like Lisa Simpson paraphrased, “Crisis and Opportunity are the same thing”. The crisis of getting out of bed in Canada is also the opportunity to reboot my own version of “the Big Comfy Couch” which would be “Curtis’ Collection of Comfy Comforters”.

If you’re already watching the show each Friday, you know I already have cartoon characters and puppets to talk too. There has even been a clown. Sure it set me on fire…but it was a warm Christmassy fire. The only thing I seem to be doing wrong with this show… is getting out of bed.
Every show thus far, is delivered by sitting in fun chairs with interesting weirdos. But only Joan Rivers did her YouTube show from bed, and it was great. I’ll just be adding more blankets and imaginary guests. It sounds like a good formula for happiness… therefore it must be!

Now that I’m down to 20% battery power I have to decide to make some changes: so that my own little world fits me, or to get out of bed and try to fit in the world around me? It’s a tough decision filled with crisis and opportunity.

In the end I have to think, episode 46 was the best I’ve done so far. There’s no way to make an episode 46 from my bed. Charging alone requires getting an extension cord in here. I can’t possibly sleep with a pile of electricity filled cords surrounding my bed like sleepy eels. Another crisis. Easily solved by the opportunities I’ve already created in the next room.

I’ve also managed to avoid learning about “bed-sores” my whole life. First-hand is not the way I plan to learn about them. So I’ll get up, open curtains and lights and follow my imaginary heroes the Muppet’s and the Loony Tunes because – on with the show… this is it.

Winter will always be here or on its way. So will crisis which means there is always another opportunity with which to warm One’s self from the inside out.

Like a Clown-fire.

My Friend Anxiety

Every week I am completely terrified to make a YouTube show starring my own stupid face and my imaginary characters.

Every week I make that show anyway.

Does this mean I beat anxiety? That the loophole to social anxiety is hiding behind a camera? No. Not at all. It does mean that I realize my anxiety can only slow me down, it can’t stop me. It means that some days I have to lay in bed and write down what I want to do. Then convince myself that somebody in the world wants me to get out of bed and make those ideas real enough for them to see or hear.

The other option is, of course, convincing myself that the rest of the world would rather I stayed in bed and did nothing. A much easier conclusion to reach, but usually not right.

As long as I get out of bed and manage not to hurt anyone, or force my show and ideas down their throat. Then there is no reason to second guess my plans for the day.

Done. Let’s make a show! Right?

Almost there. Once out of bed and the internet is read  you’re reminded that everyone hates everything… sooooo… I probably shouldn’t give them something else to hate and go back to bed.

No. There’s still no proof that everyone hates the thing you haven’t even done yet. A therapist told me to always make sure I have proof that everyone thinks I’m stupid and terrible. Before I decide to be a stupid and terrible person who lives under a pile of blankets.

Turns out I don’t actually have any proof of that. So it must be okay.

Anxiety beaten… oh but wait. Only a few hours have past. I didn’t forget my doubts at all… I do keep forgetting about the lack of “proof” I just reminded myself of. So I do Yoga or go for a walk and reset my brain once again.

The show is only 10 to 20 minutes long each week. It doesn’t take long to film. It doesn’t take long to edit and add animation and cats. It does, however, take an eternity to convince myself that I’m allowed to film, edit and animate each part of the show. Even a 15 minute task can take 2 hours of convincing and showga meditation(show+Yoga) before I can do that show related task.

Is it hard to overcome Anxiety? No. It’s impossible. But it’s very possible to understand that sometimes anxiety keeps you safe from danger while most of the time it’s trying to convince you everything is dangerous.

It’s okay to treat anxiety like a friend and say, “thanks for looking out for me, but I don’t need my spider-sense to tingle right now. I got this covered.” A real friend would understand and Anxiety really just wants to keep you safe… like a real friend. Just remember that even the best of friends need to give you space every once in a while.

Now watch a what Anxiety plus imagination equals and try to get excited for next Friday instead of terrified.
