'nk you Hogfather

Postby Nonny Mouse » Sun Dec 01, 2013 03:37 pm

Well, I had a lovely Hogswatch. I put up our outdoor lights - most of them anyway - had sausage and mashed potatoes for lunch, and opened my gifts. I got an AWESOME genuine Ankh-Morpork Passport of my own :sunny: and a box of Lady Grey tea, which someone out there knows I can't ever find out here. So 'nk you 'nk you Secret Hogfather, I'm really delighted :sunny: :sunny:

Fankoo secret Hogfather, for my brand new game - something that I'm very much looking forward to trying out!

Small was very pleased with his chocolates, and new pants are always useful.

fank oo Secret Hogfather! I must have been a very good girl when I wasn't looking. :oops:

I got a delightfully lifelike oyster pendant with matching earrings 8) , some lovely candlesticks from Anoia's Shrine and Gift Shoppe, a pair of hedgehogs that can never ever be buggered and will keep the abyssal ooze out of my nails, some Belgian mood altering drugs in lifelike molluscan shapes :thumbr: , and a stylish wizard's hat complete with occult symbols and a fir brim for these colder months. And finally, the Hogfather was able to intercede with the UU Registrar's office to execute and relinquish my hard-won degree in Inadvisably Applied Magic, which will soon take pride of place on my office wall above my US Coast Guard license, agency Safety Award, and American Society for Clinical Pathology certification as a registered Histotechnologist. :D A far more impressive credential in view of its rarity among state government employees, yet its profound relevance to my position description. They think I statistically analyze data, but I really just mutter occult incantations at the keyboard and, lo! bar charts and line graphs appear...

Dear Secret Hogfather,

Thank you for acknowledging how astoundingly good I was this year by sending me so many nice things from forn parts. My reward consisted of not one but TWO packages of Cadbury's mood-altering substance (had to steal that description from Phalarope), an exceedingly cool pen, a highly unusual keychain, and several small, lovely works of art. I shall try to be even better next year and perhaps I will get that real live wombat I've been wanting for so long.

Grateful as anything,
Yours ever,
Jean Ogg (aka Pighooey)

Thank you Secret Hogfather for my Airplane Spotter playing cards, the only problem is that I'm too busy looking at planes rather than winning at cards :D
