After all, you could be in Barrow fending off an invasion of Vampires for another half a month. (*weeps at the errors in that movie*)
But most of all, I want to remind you guys that you rock. If you're reading this, you have my gratitude. If you've ever commented, you have my undying love. You are a gathering of massively talented, big-hearted, fabulous-looking people who deserve every good thing that has ever happened to you, and I hope that the return of the sunlight brings you prosperity, success and love beyond your wildest dreams.
I hope that your holidays of choice are guilt-free and decadent, filled with the people who mean the most to you.
Thank you for the cards and virtual cookies! I have failed again to get Christmas cards out, but know that you are in my thoughts and forgive me my laziness.
If there is snow where you are, my suggestion to you is to go start a snowball fight with strangers and then have hot chocolate with candy canes.
And for the love of heaven, don't try to go shopping.
(I tried, yesterday, and barely made it home with all my limbs attached...)
PS: If you're in the Southern hemisphere, this still all applies. Except for the vampires.
