Holiday Songs I: Christmas : Apparently the Holidailies prompt back on the 11th was "What is your favorite holiday song (or alternatively, what is the worst holiday song?)" (posted Dec 14, 9:45pm)

MissMeliss: Bathtub Mermaid by MissMeliss (19)

Swing : I like big band, and the Great American Songbook - all those lovely, deliciously singable songs, and I highly recommend this album, which is available pretty much everywhere. (posted Dec 14, 9:41pm)

Chaos Attraction by Jennifer (19)

Dickens Fair : "I was watching Ellen. I had a glue gun. And this happened." (posted Dec 14, 9:32pm)

Megan knows arse-all about... by blau (18)

Undergrounds under the wire. : This is a gross one. And it's five minutes to midnight. So it's quality reading indeed. (posted Dec 14, 8:56pm)

Tuna News by Green Tuna (17)

Lucky 13 : After three years, I've finally made it past 13 posts in December. I should be kicking myself for being so lazy in the past, but right now I'm just happy to have made it over the hump. (posted Dec 14, 8:15pm)

Hat on Top, Coat Below by KarenD (19)

Quilt Show Flashback : After a couple/few days of feeling like I was getting over the sinus crud, it seems to be staging a comeback, leaving me once again with an extra fuzzy head and low energy. Instead of dwelling on that, let's instead look at some pretty pictures. (posted Dec 14, 7:43pm)

Where's My Plan? by JohnSherck (15)

Fantasy Football : In which I gripe about a sorry end to an otherwise good season. (posted Dec 14, 7:28pm)

4callingbirds by Rob Rosenberg (19)

House of Macbeth : In tonight's blog, my son writes about how similar the show House of Cards is to Macbeth (posted Dec 14, 7:18pm)

Funny the World by Bev Sykes (20)

Prompts : But now it's 7 p.m. and it's time to light a candle to represent all of our losses. I think we're going to need a bigger candle. (posted Dec 14, 6:33pm)

Creative Output by Angela Brett (7)

Christmastime is Wunnerful (Robot Protectors cover) : I unexpectedly flew to the other side of the world and got way off-track with the 'dailies' thing. But I got my robot overlords (did I say overlords? I meant protectors!) to sing a 'holiday' thing for you, along with some recycled video. (posted Dec 14, 6:18pm)

Red Nose by Bozoette (14)

Achievement Unlocked! : So... remember when I said I wanted to get ornaments, decorate the tree, make cookies, drink spiked cider, and listen to Messiah? "Why yes," I hear you cry, "how'd that pan out?" Well may you ask! (posted Dec 14, 5:54pm)

Ned the Duck by JFHobbit (19)

Day 14: Music Of My Heart : I decided that, instead of writing long and verbose prose about why I love this music (and music in general), I would just make a compilation of all the songs I've come across in recent days that have knocked me flat on my butt with awesome. (posted Dec 14, 5:22pm)

Fauxklore by Miriam (19)

Walking Frederick : 've done this walk before, though it has changed a little since the visitor center moved. It's still a jaunt through downtown, over to Hood College, then along a couple of park trails, followed by walking around Mt. Olivet Cemetery. (posted Dec 14, 5:04pm)

Wendy's Tumblr by Wendy McClure (9)

Seven Christmas Song Lyrics That I Think About Way Too Much : Who calls it ”corn for popping”? And who carries it around with them? (posted Dec 14, 4:29pm)

cygnoir.net by cygnoir (4)

Adore yourself. : It is really boring to hear about how ill someone has been, so I will save you that part of the update. But I can assure you of one thing: it is even more boring to be the person living it. (posted Dec 14, 3:56pm)

this little life if mine by lisa-marie (11)

Rain! : We had our first big storm of the year and it was really exciting! Really enjoying this rain! (posted Dec 14, 3:54pm)

Someone in a Tree by Stacey (13)

a little warm in my heart : I don’t understand how I manage to injure myself, quite often, in incredibly stupid ways. At least if I hurt myself sky-diving or something I’d have good stories to tell about it later. (posted Dec 14, 3:08pm)

Patrick's Daily Journal by Patrick Cleary (19)

Tree : With the tree and the stockings hung on the staircase (no fireplace here) and the wreaths on the door and the big round mirror and a few other decorations here and there, it now feels like the Christmas season is in full swing. (posted Dec 14, 2:23pm)

what if this is as good as it gets? by Kwizgiver (15)

this little light of mine... : I'm quite lucky... (posted Dec 14, 2:11pm)

crickwooder chronicles by Stef (19)

my thoughts all seem to stray to places far away : We still came out on top. (posted Dec 14, 1:17pm)

Extemporaneous Effects by Xeryfyn (4)

Grinch in my Heart : Now that the kids are older and do not seem to want to help deck the halls, don't want to listen to the carols or nestle into the spirit of giving, I am feeling the distinct Grinchyness creep into my own heart. (posted Dec 14, 1:15pm)

Visible Woman by Linda Ball (20)

Lego is the Topic : What cool toys, right? Of course, I'm not a parent who has to step on little pieces of plastic and try to store all these pieces. (posted Dec 14, 10:36am)

Sudden Silence by Wendi Kast (11)

Happy Holidays (emphasis on 'happy') : In fact, the towns right along the lake tend to get less snow than we do. The boundaries of the lake effect snow area are really dramatic – the storm that ultimately gave us 16 inches of snow dropped just a couple of inches in towns right around us. (posted Dec 14, 10:19am)

Where's My Plan? by JohnSherck (15)

Don't Let Go, Do Lego : Our second idea was to go up to Chicago and see all the Christmasy stuff downtown. But then Lauren had a better idea: Legoland, out in Schaumburg, plus do a little shopping at Ikea and Trader Joe's, which are a big deal to those of us living in the hinterlands. (posted Dec 14, 7:34am)

Valeroni by Mellie (18)

One Month Post Thyroidectomy : Supposedly it takes six weeks for your body to use up all stored thyroid hormones, so the big crash (or whatever) is right around the corner. My friend pointed out that it takes longer to heal inside than it does outside. (posted Dec 14, 7:30am)

Stariel Knits by Ariel (17)

A Very Knitty Day : A day filled with knitting, even more than the average day. (posted Dec 14, 1:00am)

Catchy Name Needed by Mel (19)

1975 - we've all gone crazy lately : Elton John is not the most uncool artist to admit to having liked, so let me tell you about some of the less cool stuff: The Captain and Tennille. Barry Manilow. The Carpenters. (posted Dec 14, 12:23am)

Ned the Duck by JFHobbit (19)

Day 13: History : There were, however, some things that I found pretty funny, and definitely worth saving. A lot of old essays from my first real English class that I took in 8th grade, which I decided to keep to prove to any future writing students that I too once sucked at writing essays. (posted Dec 13, 11:14pm)

Tuna News by Green Tuna (17)

Stuff Takes Time : After all, it's not like the Three Wise Men arrived second-day air. (posted Dec 13, 8:57pm)

Shmuel's Soapbox by Shmuel (19)

Inevitable Consequences (Holidailies Triolet XI) : The problem with buying a gallon of nuts... (posted Dec 13, 8:27pm)

Where's My Plan? by JohnSherck (15)

Christmas Dream Gift : That's not to say I wouldn't appreciate having a break from work that was like the break from college junior year when I read Moby Dick 8 hours each day until it was finished, but you can't go back, can you? Seriously, can you? (posted Dec 13, 7:26pm)

Megan knows arse-all about... by blau (18)

Misnamed Hitchcock movies. : "How did the pigeons get up here?" (posted Dec 13, 7:06pm)

Still Mindy by Mindy (12)

Who knows how many knives : Brian Regan on Goober PB&J – ““You know I could go for a sandwich, but uh, I’m not gonna open two jars. I can’t be opening and closing all kinds of jars. And who knows how many knives!” Today I made PB&J sandwiches for the kids. (posted Dec 13, 6:53pm)

American Graffiti by Plin (7)

Life Serial : I suspect it may never end, that I'm stuck in some sort of metaphysical Groundhog Day loop until I learn a Very Important Life Lesson. (posted Dec 13, 6:47pm)

Hat on Top, Coat Below by KarenD (19)

Irrevocable : Maybe in ten years one of your reading this will come check in to the Selkirk Lodge and find me behind the hotel desk, working nights so as not to interfere with my skiing on powder days. It could happen. A lot of things could happen. (posted Dec 13, 6:28pm)

crickwooder chronicles by Stef (19)

toys in every store : It’s been a good day. (posted Dec 13, 5:57pm)

Markings: Days of Her Life by Margaret DeAngelis (11)

12-13-14 : Today is one of those magical dates: 12-13-14. It is also St. Lucy’s Day. Tomorrow is the Third Sunday in Advent, or Gaudete Sunday in the Roman church calendar. That was the day I always had my Gala Open House Extravaganza. This is the eighth consecutive year I am not having this party. It’s been something of a stressful week. ... (posted Dec 13, 5:14pm)

MissMeliss: Bathtub Mermaid by MissMeliss (19)

Hair Apparent : I’ve had base colors from dark brown to platinum blonde, and highlights from aubergine purple to cotton candy pink. I even, once, bleached my entire head of hair and had it dyed hot hot pink (but that nearly melted my hair, and I promised Natalie I’d never ask her to do that again). (posted Dec 13, 5:10pm)

4callingbirds by Rob Rosenberg (19)

Secret Santa : In tonight's blog, my daughter discusses what it was like for her to learn Santa's secret. (posted Dec 13, 5:07pm)

what if this is as good as it gets? by Kwizgiver (15)

knitting by the fireside : My local library built a book tree. It's amazing! More than 10 feet tall. (posted Dec 13, 4:32pm)
