But.... but....
I was just settling down for a nice long (nearly) winter's nap
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But another dear tease from my Sweet Santa dear

There's a gift on my wall and one in the closet
I figured I was lucky it was early that I got it
All that I needed was patience and luck
To prevent protective spells from turning all into muck

But now I must wait, for the white coral bells to ring in the season
When the magical musical fairies do sing all in tune
My Michevious Magical Mystical Santa must have a reason
While Santa is playing and taunting it's a haunting low croon

I'll sit with my hands folded most contritely
I promise I'll go right down and do all the laundry
I've done up the dishes and wiped down the loo
But I'll stay a good girl waiting once again Waiting on you...

WHY IS NOTHING EASY!!! ????

Hoorah! My present came today! Yea!

I could even tell you who sent it, 'cause her name is on the return address. Thing is, it isn't her MUDCAT name … so I'm no wiser!

OK – inside there's something in an envelope so I guess it would tell me what 'Catter is my lurvely lurvely (and now penniless – sheesh, how much did this thing cost t' post????) Santa if I opened it, but I have this thing about opening stuff ON Christmas.

Which I can't do, 'cause I'll be away so I thought I'd open it the night before I go.

Well – I say "it". I should say "them" 'cause the box is full of pressies, all with little niggling sticky-notes on them. "Nope – not this one", "Uh – Uh", etc.

Anyone remember back in the '60s when Kodak did an "Open Me First" campaign? I desperately wanted an "Open Me First" (i.e. camera) so my bl**dy family put "Open Me First", "No – Open Me First", "I'm the one to Open First" on every single present under the tree. Got me so worked up I was sick as a dog by Christmas Eve.

So … to wait or not to wait?

I'm already feelin' a bit queasy ….

My 2004 Secret Santa gift has arrived.

It appears that, unlike last year, I have not received a rock. There are two of whatever they are and they obviously are not rocks. Well... They could be rocks, but they would have to be rocks of exactly the same size and weight as CD's in jewel cases. Furthermore, they seem to have been shipped directly from "CD Baby", not "Rock Baby". So, I would say that the odds of them being rocks are rather slim. But, hey, stranger things have happened.

I wasn't expecting you to get two presents, but I think CD Baby have thrown in a free one for you. Let me know what it is when you open it!

The other one is not a rock, but has something to do with something that rhymes with 'rock'.

There will be a little bit more from a lot further away, but probably even less rocky than this instalment - almost squishy, you might say.

Well, OK. The elves have finally got their act together (sort of, you just can't get the staff these days, you know), we've loaded the sleigh and fired up the steam catapault to get it airborn (not much flat ground for a runway here) so you should be receiving something or other some time (or other). My amanuensis on the Mudcat wishes to append the ensuing caveat (look THAT up in your Funk & Wagnall):

"Dear Nancy,
Due to concerns about National Security (whose Security? for that matter, whose Nation? they won't tell me anything) I have been obliged to put my real-world name and a return address on your parcel. Thus with very little spadework (and, indeed, a very little spade) you will be able to dig up my Mudcat identity without even opening the package. I leave it in your capable hands to decide how long you want the mystery to last.
Best wishes for the festive season,


pp Nancy King's Santa-Type Person"

Our postie is wondering just WHO is sending all these postcards at this time of year - usually all we get is bills :-(
