Christmas Presence

I brought you a house,



a birdie,



a rooster,



some horses,



juniper berries for gin,



and some eerie deer.







And a napkin!

Has the horse been Zombie-fied??? He's looking at me like he might want to eat my brains!
He/she is beautiful though!! :)

So what's the deal with you? One week you're in one State and then the next, a different one.
Are you some sort of bigamist? Two different families in two States?
I NEED to know!!!!! :P

((Hugs))

Let's just say I have plenty of family and free time, Laura.

Rachel said...

Laura, I've got Thunder pegged as either a reclusive author or an erstwhile titan of industry who had a heart attack and retired to one of many seasonal retreats. I'm waiting for posts from the Caribbean!

It's the deer of the damned I'm worried about.

I needed a napkin to clean up the coffee I spit all over my keyboard. Put the album outside. Unintentionally funny. Stonehenge threatened to be crushed by a dwarf. Line for line one of the funniest movies ever.

I understand the house in the picture has some dampness issues in the basement, no?

Incredibly erstwhile, Rachel.

Jim, it's a fixer-upper.

Laura said...

Rachel~ Well, if he's got buck$$ he can come to Canada and pick me up.
I'm ready to retire and if my "new man" has already had one heart attack, all the better!
hmmm... I must do something about ALL that family first though

((Hugs))

Rachel said...

We could start a mail-order Canuckian bride company, and pick the best ones for ourselves!

Rachel said...

I mean the best men of course. As a failed artist I'm used to living simply, but would really like to do it in the Carribean - Aruba in particular. You see, I worked as a singer (and occasional portrait artist) on cruise ships for a bit and got to know it very well.... hmmm. Any suggestions?

Laura said...

Well, I think that I already dibs thunder so.... you're going to have to move along. :)
Sorry! :P

Thunder is a lumberjack bigamist!

Jennifer said...

I believe this is Thundra...

Belated Merry Christmas, Thundra!! Also, if the powers that be work it right, there might be an Explaining Voice post on its way.

Rachel said...

Shite, your link's not available to Canookiuttians. Do you mean Christopher Walken?!!

Jennifer said...

Damn Hulu! I forgot.

Yes, it's a link to Christopher Walken as The Continental on SNL.

Canadian girlfriends are real!

If I weren't an old married lady, I'd happily stalk several of the dudes on my blogroll. Then again intra-state and international surveillance sounds like a lot of work and my epic laziness prevents me from doing anything that smacks of effort.

vacuumslayer said...

And of course I do not have the advantage of being an exotic foreign exciting Canadian. Who wants to be stalked by an American?

vacuumslayer said...

ALTHOUGH "Who Wants to Be Stalked by an American?" sounds like the title of the most awesome reality show ever.

Laura said...

A certain "someone" has been awfully quiet.
He must be on route to family #2.... :P

((Hugs))

Ask Colin Frissell about American girls (Milwaukee, specifically).

Rachel said...

I love the ending to that movie, with the Beach Boys' tune. Are you trying to tell us you have a British accent?

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

No, not me! In fact, I have never crossed the Atlantic further than Barbados.

I did watch that movie tonight, though. With the family.

... to spend more time with his families.

Smut Clyde said...

and some eerie deer.

ITTDGY is making his presents herd.

Rachel said...

We'll invite Smut if he lets us visit Kiwi land...
Ah, I can see the house in Barbados now (with Jennifer's help)... it's got lazy pink shutters and smidges of white gingerbread with two huge columns gracing the front entrance. And each of us ladies gets our own room! No, wait, that's the brothel up the street.

Here it is: it's a converted old Spanish galleon, from Thunder's treasure-diving years... frilly white curtains in port-holes, expensive deck chairs on top, flying the Jolly Roger in pink & blue. Mmm, yes, that must be it!

Jim H. said...

wtf?

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

No, not me! In fact, I have never crossed the Atlantic further than Barbados.

Never got past the best producer of rum, eh?

Randal Graves said...

Aside from Ishtar, best movie ever.
