I hate to break it to you, oh impotent one, but you're not the big bad anymore, you're not even the kind of naughty.

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.

"Against all evidence, I keep thinking the assholes are outliers." - James Holden

Many monsters, quester!

I have a spectacularly fragrant box here from Anne, but I am being a good girl and trying to keep from opening the pretty wrapping paper until Christmas. Because I like to taunt myself!

I have not done my Santa thingy yet because life has been hectic, but I expect that the coming week will be calmer.

Back tattoos of the mother is that you are absolutely right - Ame

I'm going to be later than usual with my gifts - I still need to bake and I have a bunch of school work to do before I can take the time to bake. But I love hearing about others getting their gifties!

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.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

What is going on Santas and Santees? I've heard precious little from people, do you need help?

Any gifts or communications yet?

Did you not sign up but want to be a mayhem elf? Contact me, I'll give you a name at random to send something to. Better yet just scroll through your contact lists and mail something out to the person you stop on, buffista or not! MAYHEM OF JOY!

The lost sheep grow teeth, forsake their lambs, and lie with the lions.

I got a package yesterday, and opened it today! My Secret Santa did a good job of hiding their identity. Anyhow, I am enamored of my holiday fuzzy socks (always useful as I have hardwood floors and am stingy with the heat) and some scented pencils.

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

I got one part of my gift sent off today and am hoping to get the other in the mail before Xmas.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

Msbelle, thank you for the card, and ltc said thank you for the stickers. She loves them!

Because books.

My gift will go out probably on Tuesday, unfortunately, between working and budget. I have everything, I just have to pack it up and get it to the post office.

And I received two adorable pairs of earrings, and two gorgeous hand-painted art cards (one Sam and Dean, one Wash) from my Secret Santa! Thank you!

And none of us deserving the cruelty or the grace -- Leonard Cohen

I received my gift, and it was very literary: a pair of fingerless gloves with lines from Anne of Green Gables on them, band aids with Shakespearean insults on them, a tiny book filled with quotations by women, and the soundtrack to Outlander, all from erin_obscure. Thank you so much! I love it all!
