I want to post but I am all full of yuletide! And I can't talk about yuletide! yar.
So instead you will have to make do with a post that acknowledges the existence of Christmas. Sorry.
Next, here is my Christmas wishlist, mostly for RL people who sometimes read this journal:( ten things )
Meanwhile, there was a list of things I promised myself I could do if I won NaNo this year (which I did! sort of! after ten years of trying!), and since the Scrivener winners' discount still isn't up, I'm going to have to settle for another one:
I would like for Dreamwidth to have a community called showandtell which is exactly what it sounds like: a place where people can make entries to show off that really interesting thing they own! And talk about it! And have people ooh and ah about it! Because I don't know about you, but there is a lot of interesting old junk crammed in this house that I would love to have some justification for continuing to hold on to. :P I'm visualizing that we could assign people weeks to post but have it also open to anyone who wants to post, kind of the way poetry works.
So would anybody else be interesting in taking part in a community like that? I don't want to make it if I'm the only one...
The following is the sort of thing I would visualize as belonging there, plus if I started a comm I wouldn't have to post this sort of thing here :P
( Meet my Angstbunny! )
There's a yuletide write-in at a Teaism in downtown DC this Friday which I am very seriously considering, because I haven't been to a local fannish meetup in ages (synecdochic has been very carefully cancelling every one of hers that I might be able to get to :P) and if I went I could, I dunno, TALK ABOUT MY YULETIDE. Also it's quite near the National Geographic Museum and I do kind of want to go to the Staffordshire Hoard exhibit while it's there, so I could go in earlier and do that before tea... and I could even drop by the local Occupy encampment, which is also within a couple of blocks. Anybody else thinking of doing any of those things?
And finally, here are some Yuletide-ish icon bases that I made for sharing last year and never posted, some of them from a very old greeting card and some of them from Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy From Mars book covers, and also one of the giant chicken of Hoboken (you can probably figure out which are which):
