Thank you and you and you!

Thanks to the sweet person who gave me a snowflake cookie for my profile! I've been waaaay out of the loop for the past four weeks caring for an injured parent on top of the usual working mama craziness, and this little pretty was much appreciated. Many thanks also to louise39 for a lovely holiday card. It was the first card I received this season,and it's holding a place of honor on the mantel. And finally, a big ol' (shamefully belated) muchas gracias to ladyaelfwynn for the generous gift of the book Vampire Haiku. Heeee! I've found both the historical and seasonal aspects of the haiku highly diverting. Thanks so much for sending me some giggles. They were most welcome!

Once the semester ends and I get this cranky old guy out of my house, I hope to come back and play. And finish my darned Seasonal Spuffy doll!fic. It looks so sad, lying in its file all neglected and uncaptioned. Also? I miss y'all liek whoa. ::huggles flist:: Hope all is well and that the season is being good to you and yours.

Glad you liked it! After I read it I had to pass it on!

Zombie Haiku is amusing as well, but not quite as good as Vampire haiku. I loved the DC aspects of VH, not to mention the literary and pop culture references.

Have a happy one!

Hope the old fellow gets better and out of the house soon, for your and his sake, and I'm happy to hear that your Doll!Fic is just delayed, not canceled.
Good to hear from you!

We miss you, too. I think me most of all, but that's just my raging egotism come out to play. She'll settle down in a nonce. In other news, I made my first batch of cookies last night, for a school function. Christmas has arrived. I'll get to the major gift-giving batches after my noel_of_spike day. You know you want some. *waves a cookie enticingly, gets powdered sugar on your journal*

Good luck with everything. Sounds like a full plate.

I've missed you! And your doll!fic! And I hope life is treating you better now and that everyone you love is healing up quickly!

I feel like this icon looks whenever you pop in! It fills me with that much joy!

Yay you!

Was just thinking of you so I'm glad you posted. It never feels like Christmas can start here until we celebrate Sweet Baby James' birthday on Dec. 19. That doesn't mean we don't have the tree or decorations up - we do. But it's weird to think about getting presents and stuff until his birthday is out of the way.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some party games to plan :)

*hugs*

Glad to see your post. Hope your family problems are settled soon. Also hope you get to enjoy the holidays.

I am pleased to be first with a card. Almost like the Scot tradition of New Year's first foot.

Thanks so much, Louise! My dad broke his ankle and has been staying with me and my sister (joint custody!) for five weeks. He went home yesterday, so I will hopefully be around a little more now.

Would you please PM me with your address when you get a chance? You're on my list, but I've misplaced it! :O

Hello, Kitty!
Awwwwww.

Hey, bb! My dad finally went home yesterday (five weeks!), only to be replaced mere hours later by in-laws. Who have now also gone home. And it's my last day of work until January 18. And I can no longer seem to form a complete. Sentence. I'm penciling in a mini-breakdown for tomorrow then hope to taste the refreshing sanity again. Chat soon, yes?

Aww, thanks for checking on me! I've been so tied up with my parents lately, and I'm realllly missing my LJ interactions. I lurk and read folks' journals, but there's just been no "me" time for posting. ::crosses fingers:: I hold out hope that things are going to calm down in a week or so.

Hope all is well with you and yours!
