Halloween is past & I’m feeling overcast and grumpy.
Therefore, I am naturally beginning to collect Yuletide presents for my family & friends.
: – ) Somehow it pleases me to taunt them with the knowledge that they’ll be getting something nice from me in two months, but can’t know anything about it yet! Is this cruel of me? Maybe, but they seem to enjoy the fun, too, so I don’t mind so much. My Dastardly Plans(tm) proceed apace, and it pleases me immensely to know that good things lie in store once we’re all suitably half-frozen to death. You’ll probably hear more about these plans once the presents have been given & the secrecy is no longer necessary- I promise copious photos for your viewing pleasure.
