'Beneath You'


Goodbye and Good Riddance 2017: That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, Bingo!  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Thanksgivukkahmas, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering.

Go away, 2017. You have a lot to turn around, 2018. Bring it on.

"And that's why God Almighty gave us fire insurance and the public defender".

Erin, you are the best and you have made me tremendously happy (there might have been some shrieking. That may continue for the rest of the day and weekend). Thank you so much! this week has felt like a marathon and this gave me the extra push to survive it, and to do so with a smile.

You guys, Erin sent me Pat Robertson's best recruitment ad to feminism ever quote of "feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians", as a poster. I have been wanting this for years.

And Emily - the postcard is from the NLI's postcard collection, and the bookmark is based on Ardon Windows: [link] If I recall my selection correctly, the postcard is one of the early pictures/drawings of Jerusalem, and it just says the name of the donor and that it is from the library's collection. The chocolate too is local.

A dress should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to flee from zombies. — Ginger

You got it!!! I was a little nervous! Oh, I'm so glad you liked it!!!

...was there anything else in the package? Because there should have been and now I'm worried they fell out or Customs took them.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

The Sekrit Solstice Santa strikes yet again! This time Daniel received adorable kitty-themed pot holders! And we were just saying we needed new ones.

Thank you darling!

Nope darling, I loved it.

Oh, thanks for pointing that out! I haven't thought of checking the other end as nothing rattled or moved. The pin, the socks, and the lip balm are wonderful, thank you!

YAY!!

EOS lip balm is kind of culty little thing over here and I don't think you can get it readily in Israel? Plus everyone needs more lip balm. And the pin is from a nerdy company my friend Amanda owns called Geek Details.

I love giving presents!

"And that's why God Almighty gave us fire insurance and the public defender".

I am not familiar with EOS but I don't know much on cosmetics (2017 was the year on which I first purchased a face mask and a lipstick that lasts more that two hours. I like them but the concept is still growing on me). But lip balm, of course, is necessary, because climate. I use this and happy with it: [link]
