I do have a whole other show planned out for more holiday musical goodness, but for now, if you're looking for (actually GOOD) podsafe music that's fitting (and different from everything you're already heard a hundred-zillion times) for the season, I humbly entreat you to visit my podcast's little station, and listen. ^_^  (Both streaming & download available. :))  There's silly, quirky stuff here, traditional-ish sounding pieces, orchestral pieces, choral works, a kid-friendly piece or two, Celtic-y bits, archaic bits, and swing here n' there, too. :)  (The next ep'll have Dar Williams, some rock-ish stuff, and lots more too. *beams*)

Merry Christmas & Happy Yule Everyone!!!

With all of the curmudgeonly crud concerning the holidays floating about me lately, I thought I'd make something for the fashionable Scrooge & so-done Santa hat-wearing public. :) Enter "Humbug Horns!" :D

(Horns are $10, and can come in any color. The ones above however are in: [Top] Trad. Candy Cane (white & red), Anit-Cane (black & red), [Above] Candy Swirl (light pink marbled w/black), Trad. Candy Cane, Killer Kandy Kane (white, black & red), and Coal (black).
Any ribbon can be changed out for these lovelies. I've just used matching holiday ribbon to add a bit of coordinated fun. :)

For those merry mischief-makers, for those who wanna wear something unusual & original outside of the classic, traditional Santa hat fare, or for those who just wanna express how much they are "un-pleased" with this time of year, I've made these little holiday-themed, tie-on horns. :)

They'll be on sale @ Bound where I'll be vending tomorrow night, and might also go up in my etsy store. :) (They'd need better pics of them to go up at my shop, of course.)

Hope you like!

A little Merry Christmas Elf;

would like to wish you:

So, I just spent the whole evening putting together my Christmas tree, & the damn base broke JUST as the last limb went on.... *growls* 
Now, instead of singing in front of the tree 3 nights before Christmas (as is my family's tradition), I think I'm gonna throw away the trees remains asap, put up a tiny desk tree I have where the big one should have been.. & wrap peoples' gifts. 
Thank God I'm going to Wal-Mart tomorrow, or I'd be in tears right now.

Yeah.. that kitty pretty well describes me right about now... ;)  
I am feeling SO broken today. ;\
Plus I was a dork and forgot to reserve MA, so I got to walk to the bus, take regular PT to work, and get to do the same all over again to get home. :P:P (I know, I'm a dork. S'all my own fault. I know. ;))

I had a BREAT weekend, though. ^_^ I got to spend time w/[profile] flameofsilver , I saw Jen and Chris Thursday night, signed my lease on Sat., went to do a quick camera thing on a li'l movie I'm helping out with, had dinner at the yumtastic Bennigans, (MMMM, GUINESS SAUCE!!! ;D) and Sunday I got to give gifts out to friends at my D&D game, (they all seemed to dig their gifts, too! :D:D), and followed that up with going to the L-Word 5th season premiere at Town DanceBoutique. (Which is a -kickass- club in DC that all folks in the area should TOTALLY visit. ;D:D)

So why do I hurt, then..?? Well first off I had a BUSY weekend w/-very- little sleep included. Then I stood in a line for an hour+ that wrapped around the block, danced a TON and stood --all night,-- then stood more for another hour or so waiting for MA after the event. All told it was a BLAST. I danced first as usual- embarrassing the crap out of myself amidst a HUGE crowd (couldn't resist the music), boogied w/some strangers @ the end of the night, got some cool free bits upon leaving, and had an all-around good time. ^_^ Problem is- I got home LATE, hadn't eaten all day so I stayed up a while longer to scavenge for food & eat, and then I ---crashed.--- Now I'm -completely- sacked out, (haven't slept more than four hours a night in the past week), I have no food w/me 'cause I didn't have time to snag anything, (NEEDED to shower after last night), and as for my feet... Well... Ow.

I repeat: Ow.  ...  ;)

I hope everyone else had a rockin' weekend, and that soon I can tell folks I got my new place all squared away, give everyone my new address, and have my kitties and my ratties all back together in one nice, big, fuzzy family. ^_^ I move in this weekend, and frankly, it can't come soon enough. ^_^

Love Love Love Love Love to All,
I dunno what peoples' plans are for the Holidays, but I thought I'd send this out for a general assist. :)  It's not a hint or anything.  I'm just tryin' ta help, since I know -I- love lists of others, and thought I should put this out there just in case, since I'm always asking for lists from my lovedones. :):)

If you’re inclined to get me something for the holidays and want some ideas, or need some inspiration.. a jumping off point etc, I pulled this together to hopefully help ye and thy kind heart. ^_^  I hope it helps, and if you are so inclined, thank you so much for thinking of me. ^_^


(I’m SO excited, ‘cause this year -–I can actually afford to buy people stuff!!!-- :D:D  I even could afford to buy folks in my office each a little something, and can't wait to give out my goodies. ^_^  (And boy, is office-gifting hard!!! O.O ;))
I got to buy the large majority of my gifts online, ('cause when/how am I gonna do any real, good classic Christmas shopping???), and I’m pretty much done- but if you have something n mind that YOU want, please don’t hesitate to speak up and let me know! :D  I’d love to hear what your druthers are, too! :D:D)


Thanks and Love,

  • Anything Indian/Middle eastern as far as jewelry or bellydancing clothes/scarves/skirts/music, /cholis, etc.
  • Karaoke Revolution American Idol Version, (and anything other than KR Party- which I already have. ;))
  • Katamari Damacy (PS2)
  • Kimono
  • Talking Gir Slippers
  • Anything off of my Amazon or Kaboodle, Target or Hot Topic wish lists. :):)
  • Also a gift cert to any of these places would rock, too. (Well, besides Kaboodle, that is. ;))
  • Brian Froud’s “World of the Dark Crystal” would rock, too.  (Also on my Amazon List.) J
  • Plus there’re lots of neat signs on femailcreations.com that are spiff, as well as a bunch of their other stuff, too. ^_^
  • OOH, and I just found a NEAT place call the Victorian Trading Co.  It is AWESOME, and there’s a TON of stuff on there I totally drool over. ^_^
  • Another fun place is Uncommon Goods.  They have silver and gold mistletoe (ACTUAL mistletoe coated in metal!! O.O), wobbly wine glasses & wobbly tumblers! :D:D
  • I’m also a big fan of Chivalry Sports - (and any other store that sells renn garb, for that matter! ;D:D).  Love me some garb, circlets, girdles (chain belts), belts, feast gear, tapestries, other home-goods, and bodices!!! :D:D 
  • World Market also rocks my sock. ^_^
  • I’ve been wishing for a corset from Alter Ego Erotics for like.. eons now. ;)))
  • A tat would be amazing! :D:D  (If anyone knows a good, reputable artist.) J
    LTD has a ton of stuff I dig, too. ^_^

Plus I’m taking a small break from my diet over Christmas, so if you are so inclined, you could get me any one (or a grouping ;)) of these things I’ve been hankering for:

How cool, no?? ^_^

As for “Big Stuff:”  (Yes, I know I'm dreaming. ;))

And that’s pretty much everything I could possibly think of..! :D  
There’s lotsa room in there for creativity, and BY NO MEANS am I –requiring-- ANYTHING off this list.  I’d love anything from it, but if your heart leads you elsewhere, I’m most about the thoughts and feelings behind a gift, not just its price tag. ^_^  (After all, I acknowledge I have champagne tastes on a beer budget.. but I also dig handmade stuff, and gestures/events/outings as well! :D:D

Gracias para todo, all! :D:D 
*love and hugs*

I'm giving some of these out as presents.. AGAIN!! Know why?
These were a HIT the year I passed them out for holiday prezzies, and this year I'm hoping for more laughs. Now the only question is.. which Microbe for which recipient??? O.O
I'm giving my rats Rabies and The Black Death each for their presents, and would love to give a few out to people at my D&D game.. but ya know how it is... If I give Herpes to a guy who just talked about having cold sores.. could that be funny, (I think it is, as he was trying to figure out who had passed them on to him after drinking from folks' bottles last week), or would he get insulted..? What about Malaria or Typhoid Fever..? I mean, they're pretty commentary-less, aren't they? Or Mad Cow?? And Clamydia is just so CUTE!!! I'd love to give her or Sea Sparkle to a friend's baby, but.. again.. "you're giving maladies to my KID???" ... And should I give Scum and and Dust Mites perhaps, to people w/ a REALLY dirty house as a subtle hint..? *cracks a smile* And here, I wanna get Sea Sparkle and Algae for myself... Plus they have Krill and other oceanics like Red Tide!

..What -is- Red Tide, anyway?

Anyway.. go check 'em out!! ^_^

Teehee..! Did I mention I -love- shopping online?? ;D:D I don't have to ask ANYONE for a ride, and I can get all my shopping done in DAYS, not weeks and weeks, w/tons of frustration. This rocks!! :D:D

Ciao for now, kids! I gotsta go apartment search! :D:D
you answer your cell phone at home with the same phrase you use to answer the phone at work, and consistently dial "9" to begin your phone calls at home... ;P

YAY SNOW!!! ^_^

And if people have Amazon or other lists for the holidays that they want to give me a heads-up about, yemme kno! :D:D

Ooh, and the party last night was okie. I got there LATE because of the National Christmas Tree Lighting traffic, but I sat down in time for the salad course and got to talk to some fun people. :) It was more of a dinner than a party, but t'was coo, and lots of neat prizes were given out in a spiff li'l raffle. I didn't win anything, but Tommy (an older gent who works in my building) won a Kenny G Christmas CD that he was -all- excited about. ;)
Plus the food was good, so was the cheesecake after, and today, I'm right back on my NutraSystem diet. :):)

Hope everyone's doing well, and that for Christmas this year, my Christmas Miracle comes in the form of a new apartment. :):)

Love to All,
