I can't help but be reminded of that great book club scene in The Stepford Wives where the ladies/robots are engaged in an animated discussion about all the lovely holiday decorations one could make with pinecones. Bette Midler's suggestions are hilarious. My contributions here are decidedly tamer, but I'm obsessed all the same :)
