    Those post office landlubbers delivered teh parcel from da Duke of Dystopia.

    Aye matey, the most finest kind of book "The History of Pirates".

    I thank ye.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    PlannerGirl, was I supposed to eat all of the sweets in one sitting? Thanks for the sweets and my new knowledge of all things Washington DC!


    My SS goes in the mail today, bound for a street in Florida named after a golf course.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    if the weather breaks long enough for me to snowshoe to the post office my SS present should be on it's way this afternoon.

    Haha well if they make you sick its your own damn fault Hope you like them as I love to make them and was glad it was cold enough to ship a bag of home made chocolate crack as I call it.

    Happy Holidays!

    "Disclaimer" if my package does not make it fully intact....
    I am so sorry, but I just had to see if you could be lured to the dark side....
    Even if it doesn't... it should smell great!
    It is headed EAST.
    Let me know how everything comes out.

    I handed off the box to the USPS on Saturday. They asked if I wanted one week service, I said sure, why not, and after I handed over some green they took the box.

    So, on Saturday or thereabouts, someone to the east, and south, of me will get a small, Amazon box (which does not contain Amazon items!) delivered.

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

    Tresmo -- many thanks for the super secret santa loot! I'm going to enjoyreading 1491, laugh watching The Ref, and might -- or might not -- share my snacks! You rock, T!

    (Not that I'm surprised, we BSU alums never disappoint.)

    To a certain SS located in a sunny place on the left coast: My original gift idea arrived and I was disappointed in it and won't even send it. So, I'm going plan "B" tomorrow and it will be in Weds mail/ups/fedex. It might not be there until the 24th, but it will be there before x-mas.

    Sent off my package yesterday to the area known as Zone 8. I had to ship it in two parts, but it should be there by the end of the week. I hope they enjoy!

    Woo Hoo

    Just as I was getting really depressed, my SS from Acadia Land came through! Nothing like a couple of T's, one from Despair.com, to cheer me up!

    Thanks!

    OH wow,

    Thank you Natski, I love Graham Watson prints and pictures. Own two posters of places I have been.

    When we meet in Hawaii, I'll buy the first round of Mai tais, or if in Whistler, a rye and ginger.

    Thank you jmf for the lovely holiday goodies I cant wait to try the hot cocoa tonight and read up on somewhere new. I so love the Secret Santa thing every year and learning a bit about my fellow planning geeks and where they are from.

    Happy Holidays!
