Can A Christmas Tree Have Bed Head?

There is plenty of room in my one bedroom condo. I just can't find any of it. I'm drowning in Christmas decorations, Christmas Cards, dirty laundry from 11 days in LA, and hundreds of vinyl records which sit on my file cabinet, taunting me, waiting to be converted to digital.

I do all this to myself. I've always been a sucker for Christmas decorations, though I have no sense of style or proportion. Any junky old thing with Santa or candy canes and out it comes, to be placed in a nook where nobody would ever see it anyway.

And about this tree. As referenced above, it has bed head. No matter which way I point the thing, one side of it looks smushed. And this year, it's really short. I've been downsizing my trees for two seasons now, which makes it so much easier to negotiate the two flights of stairs to my abode. But this year I was in a hurry to get the tree, and I just did not take enough time to examine it thoroughly. And though it was marked as a 5-6 footer, once the guy chopped off the bottom of the trunk, the thing shrank like 100% cotton.

Merry Christmas! I have a tree from Munchkinland.
