The Biscuit's favorites: a black leotard, a purple yo-yo, and a toy vacuum.
The mehs that surprised the heck out of mommy: Ariel pajamas and a special princess carriage featuring the Party Princess. Like, no parties today, dude.
t.rex's favorite: the trash from the Biscuit's toys.
Dr. Krog's favorite: the cane he found in a UPS box on the porch on December 2. And socks without holes.
Delilah's favorites: International Delights Mint Truffle coffee creamer and the surety that tomorrow, the holy Poang chair from Ikea will be HERS.
Santa's favorites: the awesome sugar cookies on the mantel.
Rudolph's favorite: Delilah's aloe plant, which was knocked over and mostly dead on the back porch next to the uneaten "reindeer food", which looked like oatmeal with glittery rabbit turds.
Best outfit of the day: sunglasses, fake eyeshadow and lipstick, a Snow White purse, purple glitter penguin socks, a black leotard, and a new blue lightsaber. Tres chic.
Best name of the day: Santa snagged the last "Give a Cat a Cupcake" cat from Kohl's in a flurry of shopping, and when he artfully arranged said cat in front of the tree, Santa noticed why he was the only cat left. His face is like the cat version of the vampires on Buffy.
The cat's an uggo.
But Santa assumed this would give the cat character. The Biscuit named him "Ol' One-Eye Cat". She is currently running around, looking for the cat and the yo-yo, calling, "One Eye Yo Yo! One Eye Yo Yo! Where are you guys hiding?"
Best thing that happened last night: I dreamed a new book. Because I need more to do. Thus far, it involves two orphans, a confused house, and a magical catalog.
Worst thing that happened last night: I woke up at the exact moment that "The Book of Love" was playing on Scrubs season 8, and now I feel all melancholic and mortality salient and heart-squeezy-in-the-chesty. I do not wish to be reminded of how fleeting and special this period of my life is, thankyouverymuch, Zach Braff.
The latest Buffy revelation that is totally unrelated to Christmas: Angel? He's cute, whatever. But I'm on Team Oz.
and Happy Holidays,
