Cool, that will be nice. :D

A great addition for sure Deb. :D

Good on you, Mr Wooly. :D

A great deed indeed Chief. :D
We too never really exchanged gifts, just little things in the Christmas stockings.

I did get one gift I love. A little background, when we were in NYC a year ago and went to see Spamalot, Caitlin and I went and looked at the merchandise they were selling, there were shirts with all the great single lines from The Holy Grail, except my favourite, so I left empty handed. This is my new shirt that Caitlin gave to me. :D

I'm far from caught up, so here's my first small MMQ before I head to bed:

mtnphtgrphr wrote in post #6935838 (external link)
He is the only one that can run the register... and he took the keys with him... So I wait 15 min at the register.

You have the patience of a saint! If it were me, I'd probably have walked after about five minutes, and I'd probably be pointing at them with a certain finger on my way out. (And, to be truthful, I'ld have also tossed a few bucks on the counter to pay the bill as I did so -- if I had the cash with me, that is... I generally pay with my debit card and don't often carry cash.)

Cheapest, bottom of the barrel, Mcdonalds of the pizza world, pizza place there is.

Uh, no... That would be Chuck E. Cheese... ;)

Dan,

I spent some time looking for a couple of amusing Christmas cards for my boy yesterday and all that I saw were so inferior to your "Crimbo Toons"

Man you could make some money here (and all I ask is 10% for the idea :-) )

+1 I so agree! I spent a good half hour in a store in Jackson looking for just the right card to leave for my friends who run the motel, before I settled on one that was "almost right". Any one of Dan's drawings would have been much better!


My name is Lonnie, but I answer to Thomas too.

I thought that since Jim showed his new T-shirt, I'd show the ones Heather and I were given by one of the members of our club. I just threw them into the scanner, rather than take shots of us wearing them. Heather's at work...

Mine:

Heather's:

Appropriate, isn't it?

John

Well... I didn't have cash... I only had my debit card... I rarely carry cash either... I realize now I was very patient... but I was sure that they'd call the law on me if I left :p so I didn't want to take that chance... :confused:

I meant to print out Dan's cartoons to take to dinner last night because our family friend (as well as my parents) would've really really appreciated them!

MERRY CHRISTMAS THREDDIES!!

A wonderful Christmas for the kids, lots of great presents; I think everyone was happy with their booty. We all go to my folks after our individual family happenings for the kids to open gifts from each other and my parents there, it is lots of fun.


A bittersweet Christmas for the adults as another friend battling cancer passed last night. His 10 year old daughter turned to her grandmother and told her, "don't worry Nana, he's our Christmas Angel"

Lesson learned is make every day count, tell those you love that you do love them, as I love all of you.

I haven't gone to bed just yet. (Nor, have I caught up any more.)

I just realized, Kitteh is a year old! We don't know exactly when she was born, exactly. It was sometime in December of last year. So, I decided she's a Christmas Kitteh. And, now that she's "officially" a year old, I decided she's of age...

I just gave her some catnip for the first time. She's buzzed and happy, and I'm not going to get any sleep today...

Marky and Spanky are in the top of the cat tree wrestling with each other. I swear they're going to knock the thing over. Right on my head... :shock:

aww that's cute!! Did you take any videos?


We got Kona a Christmas sock full o'toys and the cats got some crinkle mice (the sound makes em crazy and they run around like mad trying to figure it out).

It's been a nice morning.

The best part of Christmas so far was doing a video chat (all of us...Gus, Dan & myself with Tif and the baby) last night. It was almost like being together.


.. It's Permie's world, we just live in it! ~CDS
