Oh, the talking Hallmark Christmas ornaments.  How much do they rock?  They bring out my inner-twelve year old.  Luckily I married someone who shares in my enthusiasm and allows me to adorn our tree with a starship, or, technically, a scene from one of the Patrick Stewart films, circa 1998.

“Mommy, I wanna press that.  I want to press the green.”

I look up at the Christmas tree ornament.  “Oh, you want to push the button?  You want to hear Locutus talk?…Neat, huh?  Isn’t that cool?”

“Yep.  It’s a man.”

“It’s Locutus of Borg.”

“And Mommy.  It’s you, Mommy.  That’s you.”
