Merry Christmas and happy Chanukah, folks. Though I'm no longer around, I think of you all often, and with great fondness.
It's snowing here in western Maryland this morning. I bought Sausage a ski jacket. He looks pretty ridiculous in it. Wish you all could see him. I sure do miss sharing silly things like that with you.
Hope your holiday season is filled with family, fun, friends, and laughter: in short, everything you've brought to my life over the past few years here at VC.
Update: Sly is an evil genius ... heh.

We miss you a lot as well. Love the picture, envy you the frozen white stuff, since our rain here is a pain.
Merry Christmas to you and yours :-)

And it wouldn't be Christmas without family around to celebrate.

I love that guy's work. I have a copy of his original Wizards of Winter video on my hard drive.

Merry Christmas to you too. :-)

Merry Christmas, Cass. I still have you on my Google Bookmarks and often come here out of habit. Today it paid off!
We all keep hoping...

Chipmunks roasting on an open fire??? Leroy the redneck reindeer??
You guys are insane! Bwahahaha!! Merry Christmas!!

Don! Long time no see...uhh...read. How the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks are ya?
Posted by: Sly2017 at December 6, 2007 03:19 PM
Better, now that I stopped banging my head against the wall. I'm glad that Camojack posted already. I din't want to be the first guy to break up this Hen-fest! heh.
I see that some things never change; you still have some aspects of the spawn of Satan! :D
Merry Christmas, kiddo!
Posted by: Don Brouhaha at December 6, 2007 04:42 PM
Don, you are a dead man for that pig link :p
Posted by: Cassandra at December 6, 2007 06:06 PM
Why Peanuts you might ask? Heh! 'Cause when I was a younker I played Linus in that play at skool. We spent that Christmas at Mammaw's that year and all my uncles and cousins were back from Nam. I got to read from Luke at the Big Table in from of 30+ of my relatives. I was a proud peacock I tell ya'!
Seeing a post here reminds me of that homecoming. Sentimental sap that I am! *sniff*
Count your blessings Don. They have been trying to get me in touch with my feminine side by sending me JOHN MAYER videos! *ouch* That crap don't wash off! :-o
Ah yes, the feeding habits of the Villainous Hens! Yee-Haw!

Don't put that one on me, JHD :p
Posted by: Cassandra at December 6, 2007 10:43 PM
Don't lay that on me, either. If I wanted to get you in touch with your femynyne syde, I woulda sent Boy George.
Posted by: Sly2017 at December 7, 2007 12:23 AM
Merry Christmas to you all!
And if you celebrate something else [and if you do I hope it is Chanukah, b/c all the rest of the winter holidays are just silly], well I hope you have a happy one of those, too!
Great to see a Cass post, even if it is just to say 'HI'. Long live the weiner dog!
Posted by: KJ at December 7, 2007 09:36 AM
Well, it is not much of a post, but since a few people had stopped by to say Merry Christmas I thought I might as well make it a party!
Posted by: Cassandra at December 7, 2007 10:22 AM
Merry Christmas? Already? Please Lord no. Has anybody got a line on a Nintendo Wii? mrs. rdr made a promise to the littlest rdr that Santa is having a problem keeping for her, and the kid has no need for jewelry (the all-purpose escape gift). This situation prompts (of course) a seasonal haiku:
Why do Santa's eyes
Glow twice as bright as cinders?

Try Amazon.com and have it sent to work? You'd be amazed what you can order from them. I hate stores.

It's too bad the firewall Grinch blocks YouTube. Even so, he can't stop a Merry Christmas!
Posted by: Masked Menace at December 7, 2007 02:46 PM
And MathMom - somehow last night I did not see her comment. I do not know how I missed it. Guess I was just tired when I got home. Hello!

Right now it may be as slim as a spreadsheet.
It is FRIDAY!!!!
Crank it up, people. My office speakers don't have enough bass.

Hah! Miss the blog, of course.:) Merry Christmas, folks.
Posted by: Kevin L at December 7, 2007 06:08 PM
I am sooooo Glad that I stopped in to offer seasonal greetings the other day. Look what I started!
Thanks for all the laughs Gang!

What a fine tree standing decorated in the face of fierce and withering attacks by a cold uncaring north wind.
The soft, warm breath of Spring, fair maiden that she is, lies just beyond our flaming yule log yet close in our memories.
Best to all with a Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah.

Looks wonderful Cass. My family said it was nice out there until it rained.
Won't have any snow out here, hardest part about being over here in the suck.
Peace & Merry Christmas,

Merry Christmas, EssEm.
I can't tell you how much I am enjoying seeing all of your comments here again. It's better than Christmas cards :) Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
Posted by: Cassandra at December 12, 2007 04:06 AM
Here's my wish for you and yours to have a Merry Little Christmas Milady. May the spirit and blessings of the season be with you and yours all through the year.
Now off I go on my appointed rounds, over the river and through the woods, a-vexing socialists-anarchists I shall go...

I'm very fond of that version, bthun. I play it all the time. Thanks.
You know me too well :p
Judy, I have a very fine young grandson.
13 pounds, last I heard.
I can't wait to hold him in my arms again.

First Rule of The Burrito Rules: Don't talk about The Burrito Rules.
Second Rule: Ask Cricket for Burito recipe suggestions.
Third Rule: Aw, Screw It. Let's go to Cricket's house to eat over there.
