I find myself unable to improve on last year's Christmas post, Lights, Please, which is one of my favourite things I've posted on here and so, of course, drew absolutely no response from anybody. Oh well. Go check it out again, if you like. The bored reader may find diversion from trying to identify the sources of all those quotes and stuff (some are obvious; some hopelessly obscure).

I've fallen a little bit behind on The Legionnaires and Continuity Notes, but I should have something up soon. Plus of course there are a couple of comics to review next Friday--Jim Shooter and part 3 of the Action arc!

Anyway. Best wishes of the season to all!

All but two. Not bad. Okay, I cheat horribly. How about this one:

...A beer in a tree!...

A very creditable effort... although you skipped over '...we can watch the snow fall for ever and ever...', and I got '...Christmas Day will always be, just so long as we have we...' from somewhere else.

...A beer in a tree!...

Come, come, my good man. You know my country of origin.

And Merry X-Mass #2011 to you too :)

PS: No, I haven't forgotten about that thing you e-mailed me about doing before. I just haven't had the chance yet. I *will* get to it, honest :)
