So Greg’s had this light controller for a couple of years now but we haven’t really used it to its full advantage.
"This year," I said, "THIS year we’re gonna use it, even if we have to put our lights up in October." I was very insistent because last year we didn’t put up any lights AT ALL, and what kind of loser technophiles don’t put up any lights AT ALL?
So because I’m The Boss, we put up lights. Lots of them.
People have been driving by slowly for days, and the delivery men have to jump over myriads of extension cords. We’ll probably cause a wreck or something and get sued.
It wouldn’t do justice to the effort if you couldn’t see what our home looks like during the day, so I have taken photos so you can see just exactly the kind of excess we’re dealing with, here:
Disclaimer: The video you are about to see is not of the best quality — we need to enlist John for that — but Greg is all antsy to get this posted and he says it’s cold outside and he’d have to stand in the neighbor’s yard and people keep driving by and we have to put it up AS SOON AS POSSIBLE before he explodes, despite the burnt-out bulbs that need to be replaced and the focusing issues. We discussed this at length and I decided I wouldn’t make him go out and record it again. So, gentle readers, I am not at fault for video quality complaints.
I did, however, encode the lights. So if you don’t like the presentation, THAT is my fault.
