The Spiked Nog's Making Me Do It

I went to hell yesterday. I mean a cookie/ornament exchange party. I am down on these, in general, because I like my own taste in cookies and ornaments much more than the friends of friends of friends that I meet for the first time at these parties. Who knows if they rub raw pork on their counters before rolling out their mayonnaise and clamato juice holiday shortbread? But. The 5 dozen cookies I came home with were only nauseating because I ate 5 dozen of them. Hence the photo. The ornaments were ugly, as anticipated, so I hid mine in my cookie tin after I saw all the little cheap-o ones hanging from the ornament tree. A plastic car with Scooby-Doo (albeit, in a Santa hat) hanging out the driver's side window? Everyone knows Scooby doesn't drive! Except maybe when he's trippin' on Scooby Snax. I really like classic ornaments, painted or blown glass and the like. The only plastic we have are from previous ornament exchange parties. Before I learned.

However, and here's the going-out-on-a-limb part, with all that said, and feeling confident in those of you I've met in this blogging business, I am proposing an ornament exchange. If you're with me, just comment and I'll think of some way to draw names or some business like that.

Count me in.

I am still up for a cookie exchange, too, if I ever get off my lazy ass and bake some. Which I toltally will if put under pressure to send them away via postal mail.

Clamato flavor iced with mayonnaise is my specialty!

I like cookies. And ornaments.

Did you really hide your ornaments?
I love it!
We don't have a tree. But I'd send someone an ornament.

This is perfect. I just made ornaments for the first time ever last weekend. They are not plastic, no cartoon characters to be found and they are sparkly and pretty.

Okay - we've got six, including myself... any not-commenters out there want to step forward?

Will you post pictures of the ornaments? I'd love to see what other people come up with.

Is store-bought OK? I am not very crafty under pressure. I like sparkly glass, too.

Okay, so we've got six. I'm going to mix up a little pile of names and tell you who to send your ornament to, yes?
So if you all can send me an e-mail with your address, then I will send you each back a message.
Then, I'm thinking we can either each post a picture of the ornament on our individual sites (you holding it, a kid holding it, hanging from the kitchen sink - tb, or whatever). Whaddaya think?
And yes, store bought is fine with me, as the best I can do with crafts involves tinfoil and tie-wraps.

How do we email you?

Oh! You can get my e-mail if I've commented on your site, or I'll just send you an e-mail to respond to.

I'm do I get your email address from comments on my site? Thanks for bearing with me; I'm still mastering the mouse, let alone Blogger.

Arabella, you have outed me. I'm dumb and also not so smart. Here is my e-mail address:

Now my bum is sore from talking out of it too much.

From what I have read, you are very, very smart. Treat your bum to some cupcakes.

I'm worried you're going to get spam from posting your email address. Do you want to change it so it says "at" instead of the little character, so you're safe from the Spambots? Please don't make me worry about the Spambots getting to you; it will seriously keep me up at night.

Maybe I'll make a good, if neurotic, mother after all.
