*toasts her f-list* Merry Christmas!  
The girls are setting up The Santa Clause on the DVD player in the other room, my brother is rooting in the 'fridge for the fixings of a Naked Girl Scout (a mixed drink) and, if LC keeps demonstrating eight count push-ups he may just break the house.... all in all, a pretty good Christmas Eve.

I want to wish all of you a wonderful, brilliant Christmas. Even if you don't celebrate, I hope December 25th is just an awesome day for you. I love you guys, really I do. You make me laugh, keep me from taking myself to seriously, and you give me a place where I feel welcome.

*toasts* To the unparalleled Leigh-darling, to my fellow zombie-fighter Amber, and my darling wife Neb. To the amazingly clever Captanne, not to mention the supportive and generous badly_knitted. To my long-time fic comrades, the gals of our virtual Four-Oh-Double-Natural: witty Bea, blazingly brilliant Ra, the incomparable Raven, dangerously awesome Zixi, linguistically blessed Jimaine and the eternally compassionate Dougs. To the always inspiring Leia_N, and kindhearted Aeryn. To DQBunny, Antigone, Ropa, and Suzume-- friends who go so far back they know where all the bodies are buried. ^_~

To everyone, basically. Because you rock so hard trained scientists still can't measure it.

Awwww, Meredith. :) Here's to you, too. I'm so glad we met all those years(!) ago. My world would be a much less interesting and friendly place if you weren't in it.

Over seven years, now, if I'm correct. Joined M*A*S*H slash in December of '02... what an unexpected blessing that became. *hugs*

*quickly pours more gin* I still need to know where the goddamn *time* does Yeesh. ^___^

I hope you had a wonderful one as well, darling. You deserve all that and more.

*squishes Bea back* We seriously need to gate-crash that backyard MASH set and create a writer's retreat. ^_^ After the year we've had, I think we all need a break.

I'm so often astonished and delighted by the compliments and praise I receive from friends, and sometimes baffled by quite how they fit. But I'm very pleased indeed to be called "eternally compassionate", because it's such a close match with what I strive to be.

A very merry Christmas to you all, and I hope all of my friends have as many Naked Girl Scouts as they would want to have.

In my experience, you truly are. It's one of the many reasons I'm glad I met you. I made some wonderful friends on the MASH slash list-- thank you for being one of them. ^_^

Happy holidays my dear wifey! ♥ I'm so glad he's home and that you have a smile and things are going just as well as they damn well should for you.

*twirls her wifey about* I'm thrilled to have him here, and even more thrilled that he feels this is a place he can come home to. It's going to be hard to let him go, but I have every faith in his skills as a soldier and a strategist. If all goes as planned (*crosses fingers*) he'll graduate from Bootcamp on January 28th.

I'm constantly confused, irritated, proud of, and impressed by this kid. ^_~;;

I hope yours was lovely as well-- just like you!

We have heat! The job was finished Christmas Eve, the workmen were brilliant. The house is still not thoroughly warm, the loft insulation was removed after the burst pipe, but we're better off than we were. Still a hell of a lot to sort, pack and store, but we're doing our best! Christmas was a non-event, but that doesn't matter. Hopefully 2011 will be better!

Hey! Hiya!!! :-)

I went a-searchin' for ya and sorted through some old-ish LJ messages we had sent back and forth. Here I arrive to see my name in print and Holiday Wishes! :-) Same to you! I raise my cranberry and club soda to you in return! I've caught up you your other posts and see things are going swimmingly. My life trundles along -- some parts great and some parts "this too shall pass"-ish.

Can you believe I'm still harbouring resentment about that blasted television show and that marvelous young, cunning, crafty, slightly-wicked but oh, so brilliant Butler? *sigh*

All the best--

Hey! There you are, darlin'! ^___^ I'm so happy to hear from you! I'm glad to hear things are mostly going well-- I hope what needs to pass passes quickly.

Can you believe I'm still harbouring resentment about that blasted television show and that marvelous young, cunning, crafty, slightly-wicked but oh, so brilliant Butler? *sigh*
Only if you can still believe the same of me! *sighs* I'm looking forward to new Doctor Who, but it's just not the same. I think I've re-written the next chapter of "In Amnion" so many times, it's like I'm stuck in a temporal loop. @_@;;

It's really great to hear from you! *hugs*

Ya know, I've been in one fandom or another since I was a child. Literally. I was thirteen when my Mum drove me to a Star Trek Convention in 1975. O_O I love Spock, Ron Perlman's Beast, John Crichton, Michael Samuelle -- but I have ~never~ cried so hard as when Ianto died. And, apparently, I hold a grudge. Who knew.

All of CoE left me outraged and I haven't changed my mind one iota.

So glad to hear you're at least looking at "In Amnion". You know, you are hoist by your own petard? Your writing is so lush and atmospheric that it's seductive -- so much so that one wants more and more! Deal with it, dear. LOL If nothing else, cheat and send me an outline. I love to be spoiled when the development of a plot matters to me almost more than the writing of it.

Hope all is well with you! I'm doing great but my friends are all taking ill for some reason. One has an undiagnosed "everything hurts" complaint and the other is having neck surgery O_O in two weeks. One other has a congenital situation that has kept him in situ for the entire month. Jeez.

Glad to catch up with you! :-)
