    And with that, I will eagerly be awaiting someone's story about the tradition of the grelflin. A vile creature spewed forth by the unholy matrimony between elf and gremlin: devourer of Santa's Helpers and worshiper of pre-xmas Scrooge.

    This time, I may actually do something. I know I said that a month ago, but I'm in a dry spell right now, and I need some writing to pull me out of this block.

    Count me in. *tips hat*

    For some reason I thought that read "pre-Xmas music".

    You could do what I do and just overconsume rummy eggnog until sparklie lights just start to magically appear. You know... shortly after ricocheting your way down the hall for yet another glass of yummy rummy eggnog

    Fung Koo's eggnog. Made with the finest eggs and the freshest nog.

    ... 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.

    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.

    Eggnog? I want some...

    There is brevity and then there is brevity eh!

    Man I want a drink now with all this talk of nog. I'll have to settle for lots of cream in my next cup of coffee.

    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.
