No rest for ye merry gentlemen

dundas_square_treeWanda put up our tree last night (that isn’t it, by the way—that tree is at Dundas Square), but managed to SNAFU the lighting.  The plug for the lights humourously ended up at the top of the tree, not the bottom.  She wanted to get an extension cord and fire it up as-is.  I said this is no time to cut corners; make it right.   So it takes an extra day to put up the tree; if you’re going to do something right, do it right the first time — that’s what Mike Holmes would say.  There’s no pride in your craft when you wire up a tree the wrong way but camouflage it with an extension cord.  Next thing you know, kids are going to be building substandard snowmen without building-code-mandated corn-cob pipes, button noses and eyes made out of coal.  Pride in craftmanship is dying a rapid death in this country, I tell ya.
