Um ... no prizes  
I did write for hd_holidays , but there are no prizes for guessing which one I wrote as it needed to be done very quickly, and so is blindingly obvious. I'm going to talk about this far more after reveals, but I just want to quickly note that nursedarry  is an absolute treasure and a bloody marvel who gave up a significant part of her Christmas break so that I could turn in an edited pinch hit (and what a joy she is as an editor!) when the wondrous jadzialove  and indefatigable treacle_tartlet  were both trapped in the internetless wilds of two great countries after their invaluable help on the first part ;-)

Related to this is a round of loud applause for the hd_holidays  mods who have done an amazing job under duress. Though next year I will be completely avoiding the lot of you lest you awaken my dregs of human kindness again.

I was going out today, but accidentally turned the cricket on. Oh well, two days of work and then the weekend!

It was a pleasure. And a very funny, clever one at that!

Obviously any cleverness came out of our surprise psychic link!

For which I'm giving our mothers NO credit :) it was all us, BB.

Ha! They could not be organised enough to obtain any credit! Absolutely all our own fabulousness. Which is not genetic. ;-)

Hardly indefatigable, darling, since I believe I fell asleep instead of beta reading the fic in question (although, in my defence, a week with Blondie's family compounded by Jetstar's fuckwittery on the way home had rendered me barely capable of stringing a sentence together, so I would have done more harm than good, I fear!).

Oh, god, Squish has eaten something blue...

Let's hope it was also something berry ...

I think it might have been (non-toxic, thankfully) face paint crayon...

This is why you should never let her watch Lady Gaga videos. Bad fashion role model!

Hah! We only listen to the music, I promise!

Barbara Cartland pictures also bad. *nods*

Absolute treasures should of course be commended.

I'll join in on the applause for the mods. I'm very grateful for all they do. :)

My flist is full of them, but to give up some Christmas is quite the kindness!

And yes, they have been stalwarts!

Hmmm, you should point me via email, because I've not been reading much of the HP comms/fests lately. :D

Also, Pommy Pommy Pommy, Oi Oi Oi!

Ah, Mr Cook and Mr Bell ... I did think it poor form that only Mike Hussey applauded Cook at his century, but then, since Hussey has been pretty much the only reliable person in the Australian team, perhaps the one counts for the whole ...

Mr Cook is rather awesome, and not a little delicious.

I'm also all for good causes, but it didn't take me long to get over the whole pink thing (and the television sop that went with it). Honestly, it was like an explosion of finger buns at the CWA bake sale. My teeth were hurting after just a few minutes of it.

Hard hearted, cynical old crank, aren't I?

(I have little regard for Australia's much-vaunted good-sportsmanship, which I've seen little evidence of in real terms)

I've had no time to be on line long enough to read anything during my travels in Sweden, so this is a request that once they are no longer secret please do post which is yours so I can read it later. Feel free to also mention if there are any others I shouldn't miss despite the lack of on-line time...
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 5th, 2011 03:05 pm (UTC)
I will! I am debating whether or not to write the two bits that I had to drop due to lack of time before posting it here ... on the one hand, they're in my head, but on the other hand, I could finish something else!

Reading through others now, will list my unmissables :-)

What can be done to "awaken your dregs of human kidness" If I ever have another child (immaculate conception and all that)I could name it after you? deal?
I love you and your writing and if the above offer doesn't hold, then I am open for suggestions :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 5th, 2011 09:36 pm (UTC)
I'm still writing, I just plan to really and truly stick to my no fests rule this year, in a bid to do some writing I had planned to do! Last year saw a whole lot of completely unplanned festage due to my inability to say no to the words 'desperate for a pinch hitter ...' This year I shall stay strong!
