    ... if you can't find any nog, try using your noggin.

    All I can think of is Topol singing "Tradition". It doesn't make for that good of a story.

    Yummy Egg Nog. With rum or without - I love it. Well I have an idea this month that did not take too much head scratching to come up with for a change. I have been inspired by the season so prepare yopurselves for a Christmas tale. You'll likely all hate it b/c it is sure to have a happy ending too.

    Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Batman Smells...Robin Laid an Egg...Batmobile lost a wheel and the Joker got away...Hey! Everyone join in. Now where did I put my nog.

    Heh. I have my story written and I'm just waiting to do one more edit and I can submit it. Unfortunately, my husband is doing his whole "work at home day" thing and is hogging the good computer. This one doesn't even have Word on it...and the keyboard buttons stick...and...and...and...it just sucks. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I spent a few hours yesterday and the story just flowed out. It's neither holly nor jolly, but it'll do. Well, we'll see. :cool:

    Eggnog? I want some...

    I've got my story all ready to go, mentally, but the words to share the idea are not coming so easily to me as they apparently were to venustar. Maybe I need some of that eggnog to loosen up the crusty ol brainpan. Hopefully I'll have my story ready soon.

    Darn HE. I was hoping to beat you. Well, now that I can't be first, I'll try to be last.

    Mine is all written up. I'll just spend the next 18 days or so agonizing over it and editing it to death. ;)

    I actually had mine written yesterday by about 1pm. Heh. However, this month, I'm being smart. I've sent it out to a few friends of mine and they're gonna read it critically for me. Then I'm gonna revise. Then they're gonna read the revisions and repeat. Now, if only they'd hurry their reading up.

    Well, the story I posted has little likeness to the story I plotted in bed last night. That story was...well, that story was forgotten this morning when I sat down at my keyboard. I'm going to have to begin keeping a notebook by my bed or buy a laptop and keep that there. The only notion most certainly brought into today's story from last night's is the idea of the Keep, why it's there and what it contains and how that seems to adolescents six or seven generations removed from its creation.
    Hopefully, today's story gives you enough information to make of the Keep anything you like.
