Must admit, sushi and black pudding's not on my Christmas Fayre shopping list this year. Oh how quickly food fashions change.

Not so with one little piece of winter decoration that means so much in Christmas Past, Present and Future by Caro.

I've been doing a spot of cleaning and have pruned my Flist on this LJ. I'm in agreement with kazzy_cee about changing the word friend to subscriber. If you'd like me to keep you on the list so you can read the F-locked posts, comment to this entry.

Munches the gingerbread man jamalove29 sent me. Mmmm, yummy. Plus, virtual sugar = zero calories. Now it's back to work.

*wants to stay, of course. ;-)
What's wonderful with this little gingerbread man is that you can munch for several days long. :)

Thanks again for providing all these links to many delightful Christmas tales , Pat !

No fear that I'd ever take you off the Flist, Caroline.

There's more wonderful tales still to come.

Would like to stay and thank you again for these pimps.
20th-Dec-2006 10:48 am (UTC)
Not to worry, you're safe, and thanks for passing on the pimps.

I've not commented befor, but I just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely stories you're pimping. Sadly I've only had time for a couple, but I might come back during the holidays and indulge myself!

Also I bring a rec for your list: Still The Night by the_royal_anna. Spike/Buffy, post 'Showtime' (Christmas). One of my favourite ever ficlets, because it's just so beautiful and lyrical!

Oooh - thank you so much for this. I'm making room for it on the list right now.

I've only had time for a couple.
I'm planning to post the complete list after the holiday.

Oh, do please leave me on. I haven't time to comment to people as much as I used to, but I do read! :)

No fear of my striking you off, you're one of my oldest Flist 'friends'. Not that you're old, but your alter ego (who is positively ancient) was the reason I signed up for this LJ malarky all those years ago.

staying please:)
20th-Dec-2006 06:25 pm (UTC)
Of course!
20th-Dec-2006 10:23 pm (UTC)
Yes please, I'd like to stay too. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Lots of Love. J.

::smooshes you::

Merry Christmas to you both.

Count me in....please?
20th-Dec-2006 11:04 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't dream of throwing you out.
20th-Dec-2006 11:10 pm (UTC)
Oh, I definitely want to stay... *bats eyelashes at you in a vain attempt to look appealing*
20th-Dec-2006 11:19 pm (UTC)
How can I resist batty eyelashes?

There was no danger of you being 'defriended' (god I hate that word). My FList is very unweildy and some people on it haven't posted an entry since 2005 or earlier.
20th-Dec-2006 11:26 pm (UTC)
I know... it's the whole concept of cutting people off I am uncomfortable with. I've only ever defriended one person, and that was because their entries were so depressing and ranty that I found I was automatically scrolling past them so they didn't ruin my day. And really, on a reading list (which is absolutely what the flist is, as far as I'm concerned) what is the point of an entry you never read? I felt bad about it though.

My grandad (curmudgeonly old sod that he was) used to mutter darkly that "X will be going in my black book" if they upset him. And used the threat of this fictional (I assume!) book to emotionally blackmail my mum and the rest of us wherever he could.

I felt bad about it though.
So did I - until this morning when I discovered that two of those I'd crossed off the list had 'defriended me'. Maybe all they needed was an indication that we had little in common any more?

will be going in my black book"
Did he ever say what the black book list was for?
21st-Dec-2006 04:00 am (UTC)
I would like to stay on board, please :-) Hope you have a lovely holiday!
21st-Dec-2006 09:23 am (UTC)

You too.
21st-Dec-2006 06:01 am (UTC)
i'll 'subscribe'. :-)
