So! I bought myself some Christmas presents, and this asian-style parasol was one of them:
That's The Runt obstinately refusing to model in the foreground. See how his ears are back?
"What do I look like?," he says. "One of those Price-is-Right chicks? Forget about it! I'm just passin' through, here."
And no, that's not a chia pet on the right - it's the cats' greens. To the left of the parasol is a little wicker gazebo, just ... because.
