Whether I want to or not, I always tend to get into the 'holiday spirit.' I am a sucker for lights, presents and endless baked goods. So, even though we don't celebrate Christmas ourselves, I still like to participate in all of the bonus fun this time of year. I have been hankering for a good Christmas lights display but haven't wanted to dish out twenty dollars to drive around for a few minutes looking at really over the top light show.
|You may notice that this picture, too, is sparkling. Picasa has done its witchery to my pictures. And I like it.|
Mid-week my friend Sarah asked if we wanted to go to Baltimore to check out the lights on 34th Street on Friday. A shout out to one of my favorite movies and Christmas lights? Yes, please.
|Dylan McDermott in a turtle neck? A young Matilda? This movie has it all.|
|Don't they know it's spelled "Happy Holidays"??|
|This picture is SNOWING! What the who what is going on? It's a miracle. On 34th Street?!|

|This picture makes me want to check out google street view of this block.|
On the way in, we had passed an exciting looking place called the Papermoon Diner. Although it is a little bit arrogant, the diner accurately is described as "eclectic" and "eccentric" on it's website. There are strange mannequins outside with utensils for hair and an army of toys inside. The whole place had a Bjork meets spoiled, slightly psychopathic child feel. In a good way.
The food was pretty decent and it was a fun place to eat. I'm not sure if I would go out of my way to eat there again but it is definitely worth checking out once.
|We wondered what it said about us as people when we passed this on the street and all three of us wanted to eat here.|
