I. Am. On. Vacation. 

Which should give me a chance to:

1. Decorate the tree that's been standing, nude, in our livingroom for the past two days. Late start, anyone?
2. Finish my holiday cards. I got 19 out this week and if I can get the same number done tomorrow, people will get them before ... uh ... New Year's? Maybe?
3. Tell the story of Andy's tale of woe - stolen guitar, smashed car window - which then turned into an honest-to-god Christmas tale of loveliness.
4. Wrap presents.
5. Cook a goose. 
6. Write ALL THE FIC for 
[community profile] fandom_stocking . (I have a stocking up myself, and here it is, but that's not quite as important as WRITING ALL THE FIC.)

More, later, after I've decompressed into holiday cheer. Oh, and a martini

ETA: Huh. I can't get through to LJ, ("Bad Gateway") and it's not cross-posting. Anyone else seeing those problems?.  This entry was originally posted at http://kaffyr.dreamwidth.org/433079.html?mode=reply, where there are currently comment count unavailable comments. You can comment there or here; I watch both.

I got the Bad Gateway last night when trying to access LJ. Clearly that issue seems to be resolved.

Yup, it does indeed appear to be solved. I was, quite irrationally, certain I'd screwed up, and then I remembered, no, this is LJ.

I hope you have a great Christmas!

WHOOT!! VACAY!! WITH GOOD THINGS PLANNED!!

Hope FB is okay...O_o

Yeah, Eljay went down last night. Which stopped me from posting. Which was probably a good thing, really...

Yes, FB is just fine - in fact, more than fine, since his friends got together and raised enough money to pay for the broken window and to pay for new electric guitar effects (pedals and such), and one of his friends gave him a new Telecaster. He said on Facebook that he felt like George Bailey at the very end of the movie.

Hugs to you and yours, my dear, and may this Light-Against-the-Darkmas be a good one for us all.

I wouldn't be surprised if bare trees became a new trend!

Heh. We normally load our tree down with many, many ornaments, as well as lights and garlands, but our little tree this year is so thick and dense that we would be able to put many ornaments on. I decided that's fine, since we'll only have to put our favorites on (including my great-great-grandmother's two very fragile tinsel ornaments.)

Less is more, although I usually ignore that saying;)

I hope the decs survive. One of the old tiny santa's belt has fallen off on my tree!

They did survive, and now have pride of place near the top of the tree. Were you able to retrieve the belt, so the tiny Santa doesn't lose his britches?

:-)

It's ok the belt landed on the branches directly below. They're made of a small pipe cleaner.

Sleep all you want.
Hadn't heard there were positive developments on the smash & grab. Glad to hear it.

I slept in until 9:30 this morning! W00t!!1!

I'll give a further explanation of Andy's Amazing Adventure elsewhere, but yes, he was gifted by a lot of loving friends.

& I just dispatched two fat thumb drives, one audio and one video, of remedial weirdness to Emily.

There's so much fun involved in introducing someone to fandom, isn't there? Your gift will be much appreciated, I can tell you!

Happy holidays! Vacation is divine, yes?

Vacation is indeed divine! (Although today will be "vacuum, make relish, prepare the dressing, prepare the goose, get the chocolates and the salad and, oh, wrap the gifts" day.)

I just finished putting the tinsel on our tree about 30 minutes ago. I am not an early-tree person.

We just finished the best tree ever (every year's tree is the best tree ever at Casa KathBob), and are about to put the star that Andy made when he was four atop the entire glittery mess.
