Happy Holidays, Everyone  
First, I want to thank the wonderful deirdre_c for the LJ gift-- a sweet little snow globe! That brightened up my evening last night, when I was online until 2:30am trying to fix a code problem at work and uploading photos to Walgreens and generally going nuts. Thank you so much!

I also got a Christmas card a few days ago from athrosknot, and one earlier from witchofthedogs, who are both SO much more on the ball than I am. I did all of my Christmas cards... yesterday. Yes. jasmasson sent me an adorable e-card last night, which makes me ponder whether my family would let me go that route instead. :)

I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas, Kwanzaa, much-needed break or whatever these next few days are to you. You've made the last year much richer for me, and I really enjoy your company!

Since I see time slipping away, I'm going to remind any stragglers (like me!) to vote in the pbslash awards before Dec. 31, when time runs out. I might very well be on the road that day, so I need to hop to it myself. WHY is there always the procrastination?

Love and chocolate greetings to one and all!

Have a wonderful holiday. I hope you manage to sneak in some well-deserved rest between the festivities, and that your Santa brings you lots of thoughtful, love-filled presents. (And some hot brothers. *crosses fingers for you*)

*hugs you*

P.S. If you make any festive cakes, you'll post pictures, right?

The rest is more important than anything, with the way the last few months have gone. I think my SPN Xmas fics are falling by the wayside, but I can't bring myself to care-- too much stress already. But the kids will have a good Christmas, and it looks like the windy weather is pushing a storm off for one very important day so we can travel north to my see my family. The Xmas travel across the Oregon border is always iffy!

:D If I DID I'd post them, but my only baking this time of year is stuff to give away (cookies and the dreaded biscotti). And even that's too tempting as it is. If I know my sister, she'll bring a pfefferneus house laden with candy, and I'll lose all semblance of self-control and eat at least a third of it. Gads, I hope not!

Merry Christmas to you!

Merry Christmas! Hope the stress isn't too chaotic :)

So, ever feel like writing a WinterWonderLand AU for our heroes?

Nnnnnnng. Nnnnnnnng. I'm working on it. You know how much I don't enjoy voting for awards. But I'm working on it.

Haha! It's the antithesis of sweaty "Panama," which is the reality. So much sweat that you really have to ask yourself about The Sweatshirt of the first S3 episodes (hence... the CrackFic).

AUs are so not my thing-- "Paradise" universe aside, which wasn't that AU when it started, up until Season 2 went nutso. ;)

But I'm working on it.
The sheer quantity of Michael/Mahone fics alone is staggering. :0 Though... not unpleasant. ;)

Naw, it's not so much the reading of the stories (besides, it's possible to only vote for the categories you are interested in), more that I remembered I generally dislike the process of most fic awards, that this one has no direct voting poll, that you can only vote for one fic ect...

So it's mostly the issue of having to get my own resentment/dislike of the process in general.

Well, nobody says that they couldn't have to settle down in a COLD country for a while after finishing whatever happens in season 3 :)

Canada! Russia! Sweden! Alaksa! (guh, Alaska would be hot! All those Due South memories getting to me)

You sure you couldn't be blackmailed with the promise of a winter of Christmas themed Dom/Lincoln manip? *bats eyelashes*

Hahaha! Mmmm...

Bet I've got a pesky fanfic100 prompt that'd do it, just for a standalone. ;)

Could be a fantasy/dream! A pre series fic! A vacation! :p

*giggles with joy*

Oh yeah! Hard to believe I couldnt get hardly a single soul - and believe I begged and pleaded in all possible directions - to write the pair in season two.

to write the pair in season two.
Well, canon wound up conspiring against you, what with Mahone being out to kill Michael and all.

But Season 3? With the rubbing up and leaning and whispering against Michael's neck? Hoo, boy!

Yikes!!! I almost missed your post :o(

Here's hoping you've gotten the time to slow down, rest and enjoy yourself in all that holiday running madness.

Travel carefully and have a really great Holiday my dear lady.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on December 25th, 2007 07:40 pm (UTC)
It's been a frenzy (every Christmas is like, "Well, we pulled it off again!"). But I'll be glad for a little breathing room in between all the driving, and fervently hope that the weather is on our side. *crosses fingers*

Many blessings to you and yours this season. :)
