Is it weird that I always wanted a Chia Pet?

Flash forward to Christmas morning, and I made a shocking discovery.

So, back in January, I cracked open the box, and set out to grow my Chia Pet. But I figured that this was an experience that needed to be shared with the world. I filmed the unboxing and then I set up my camera in the hopes of doing a time-lapse thing to chart it's growth. And then edit it all together into a YouTube video.
I've had the video sitting on my computer about 3/4ths finished for a month now, so back on Saturday, I said, "Today's the day I finally get it done." And get it done I did, and now it's on YouTube for the world to enjoy.
