    Chicago's very own, Channel 9 WGN? Sorry, I'm old and my memory, it's like a steel trap, it remembers waaaaay too much stuff. Honestly, I don't know if I do or I don't have that channel in my current provider's scramble, they switched everything back in April and I've adjusted by finding a clutch of basic faves. Other channels I've found by accident, but I really can't identify more than half of the channels on the dial.

    *Equally disappointed because I can't get my Muppet photo project done thanks to sendspace not working at the moment.

    Yep....that'd be the channel.
    You? Old ? Uh...nope! When you start forgetting things, THAT'S when you worry, hokay? Who knows? That channel might be on your TV but don't go completely crazy looking for it. Good luck with the photo project! :)

    Robin: Oh Mom PLEASE don't tell my friends! They'll laugh! An' don't tell Prairie Grover, Rowlf or Chef either!

    Sure hope the snow clears up and we can get good reception to listen to MCR before the Christmas music gets completely phased out or even before we miss the New Year's selections.
    UD: They have New Year songs on there too?
    Yep. There's one that always impresses me with audio clips of events and people throughout the years in American history/pop culture.
    :batty: And they play cuts from that New Year's special ve stayed up for late once.
    Me: That special has a fond place in my heart, especially due to how I caught it as a real surprise.
    :insatiable: Me remember that one... :laugh: got the newsanchor gig on MNN (Monster News Network) that night, :super: was the delivery monster, and me was science expert.
    *Ed chuckles at Cookie and the ending of the special more than anything.

    *:insatiable: grabs a coupla peppermint orbs from the bowl to tide him until dinner's ready a bit later.
    Everyone in Apt 1 is excited for Christmas, their stockings hung by the furnace, the candleholder draped with our spooky ornaments.

    Everyone is sitting in the living room eating delicious ginger cookies with white frosting on them, while watching The Muppet Christmas Carol. They are at the part where the Cratchit's are singing Bless Us All.

    Bridget: (Cuddled up in a warm blanket with Elizabeth, Natasha, and Little Murray Sparkles) This movie is so touching. Robin did a wonderful job at playing Tiny Tim. His mother must be proud.

    Elizabeth: Yeah! I really hope that Mr. Scrooge realizes that its better to be nice though. Don't you Little Murray Sparkles?

    Little Murray Sparkles: *Meows and purrs against Elizabeth's chest*

    Natasha: (Playing with Little Murray Sparkles tail and giggling)

    Bridget: I'm so lucky to be able to spend Christmas Eve with such a wonderful family as you guys!

    Elizabeth: Aw! Right back at you Bridge!

    Tiny Ti...er...Robin...time to call it quits for tonight.
    Robin: Aw, c'mon Mom...please?
    It's late and tomorrow's Christmas. You know that.
    Robin: Welll... OK. I'm tired anyway. Goodnight Mom. kissing me.
    kissing him back
    Goodnight kiddo. Love you.
    Robin: Love you too. in slightly higher voice God bless us all...everyone!

    Elizabeth: (Runs into my bedroom and starts shaking me to wake up) Bridget! Bridget! Wake up! Its Christmas! Its Christmas day!

    Bridget: (Looks at my clock to find that it is only 6:50 in the morning. Sighs and turns over on my side. Yawns.) Thirty more minutes Lizzy?

    Elizabeth: Oh please, oh please Bridget? I wanna see what Santa brought for us! Please! Please! Please!

    Little Murray Sparkles: (Licking all over my face)

    Bridget: (Sits up and stretches my arms into the air) Oh alright, Liz. Come on, let's go get Natasha up.

    In Apt 1...

    Cookie Monster has a big pot of chocolate coated raisins, he's snacking on a few already.
    Uncle Deadly got a new shroudy black coat, kind of like the one he normally wears.
    Count received a similar shirt, though his is decorated with silver white bat-icons around the collar and cuffs making him look quite festive.
    Ed has a few shirts he was wanting, one of his fave football team and another of the Halloween Town citizens on parade.

    There are candy canes with a bow in the stockings by the furnace, Fatatita can be spotted at Count's feet demolishing the hook of the one he gave her as a treat.

    Merry Christmas guys and happy holidays to everyone else.
    The gang put their presents away so they can wash up and have something for breakfast, then go down to the party at the club where they'll meet family and fiends.

    Ojo: (walking with me to The Count's room with a basket of cookies, and a triple berry pie) Where is it? Are we lost again?

    Me: Hmm...nah. I see it up ahead. Let's just leave it outside his door. It'll be a nice surprise! :)

    Ojo: I love surprises!

    Me: Did you like your Christmas surprise?

    Ojo: A closet for Snowbear's clothes, and more clothes to put in it? Of course! And I know you loved yours.

    Me: A copy of recipes from Bear and a cooking set? Oh, I can't wait to make cooked and buttered string beans the way he does! (stops walking) Here's his room. Let's go!

    Ojo: (knocks on the door, leaves the basket and we run off)

    The spooks from Apt 1 are enjoying a cool breezy evening at home, knowing full well there'll be a few bangs and booms outside, despite what Bear said about fireworks being for the 4th of July.

    :insatiable: This triple berry pie is delicious, and the little chocolate shavings not bad either.
    :batty: Ve should share our 4 and 20 Blackbird Pie recepie with Ojo and her roommate.
    UD: Yes... But where would you find enough blackbirds to stuff into the pieshell?
    Me: Never mind, we'll just send her some of our number cookies and an apology we picked up the pie late yesterday.

    *Drops off a quick consultation note in Aunt Ru's mailslot.

    *Goes to deliver some butterscotch 10 cookies to Ailie up in Apt 7, along with some goodies for her other roomies. Glad that she's still here, hope everyone has a safe New Year's.

    Ojo: Happy New Year, T! :)

    Me: Happy New Year, Ojo. Did you get any mail today?

    Ojo: Mr The Count sent cookies and a note. He says sorry about getting the pie late.

    Me: Aw, he didn't have to do that! It's fine whenever he gets it. You know, since it's the new year, maybe we can stay in one of the apartments now!

    Ojo: That would be great! Snowbear could use more room.

    Me: Room? Room for what?

    Ojo: All her clothes and her car!

    Me: Wha-? What car??

    Ojo: *pushes Snowbear in a toy pink car* This one!

    Me: A car for snowbears. What'll they think of next?

    Downstairs in Apt 1...

    The roomies are cleaning up after a breakfast of bowls of oatmeal.
    :insatiable: Ah, that a good breakfast, thank you Mr. Deadly.
    Me: Yep, I love a good bowl of oatmeal with plenty of raisins, but no lumps.
    :batty: I enjoy trying to count all the little raisins.

    *Ed washes up, already wearing his new Ravens shirt. The game's not until later this afternoon which he hopes Baltimore can beat up on the New Fangland Wraithriots.
    UD: Are we headed down to the Bat, Bolt & Skull fto watch the game?
    Me: Sure, oh, and you can invite Link if he wants to join us too.
    :batty: What about the townhouse though?
    Me: We'll probably start asking for re-application submissions on Monday, best to get that started with a new week now that the holidays have tampered down.

    The scare crew set about enjoying the rest of the day with usual Saturday stuff.

    :sympathy:: Hey Kat...you ain't gonna believe this!
    I what going to believe this Rowlf?
    :sympathy:: C'mon Kath..I'm mad. An' besides...Robin isn't around.
    OK...I'm sorry. Talk to me. What's the matter?
    :sympathy: : I was watchin' this clip of a TV game show on You Tube. It was an old Match Game Hollywood Squares thing. They wanted to know if dogs are smarter than pigs. Ya know what? They said pigs are smarter!! How do ya like that?? So if you know who finds out, she'll rub it in my face!
    Rowlfie...c'mere hugging :sympathy: First of all you are a very extraordinary dog. I think you're extremely smart!! Second of all, that TV game show was from the 1980s; over 30 years ago! Third of all, who says the porcine princess is going to know? She'll only know if you or I tell her. I don't see anyone else around. And even if they were around they better not say anything because they know better than to eavesdrop stopping and listening to make sure I don't hear any medium sized flippers running. Nothing. Good. I know that Chef Prairie or Grover wouldn't eavesdrop either . All clear. So do you feel better?
    :sympathy: : Yeah...I'm sorry I was all ticked off.
    Hey...if someone said "I'm smarter than you!" I'd be pretty mad too!
    :sympathy: : YIKES!! A mad Kitty Kat!! Seen it and don't like it!

    *:batty: sends out a hext to people from the townhouse to join us at the club now the game's over. We'll have the organ going if :sympathy: wants to blow off some steam and some beer on tap if he needs to wet his whistle too.

    :sympathy: Nah....I'm OK. Thanks for the invite anyway guys. My whistle's already wet enough. Maybe some other time.

    Ojo: Hey, Mr The Count! T isn't watching football anymore. Something about some Gigantics not playing so well this year...

    Me: That's Giants, Ojo. And that's okay. Hopefully, we win and face a certain team we seem to play against every 4 years now.

    Ojo: I wonder if he knows about Ferret Jeeter, the baseball star. We saw him play once. :)

    Me: Sounds cool! I watch baseball, too. But, my team isn't so great there, either.

    Ojo: It's nice that you cheer for them when they lose so much. SnowBear and I could be cheerleaders! Now, we just need matching outfits.

    Me: (sighs and chuckles) Guess it's back to the Build a Snowbear store for us.

    Hi T. Giants huh? So long as they knock that team from Boston down a peg. At least my blackbirds put up a decent showing yesterday, we coulda have won. *Moves on to next year/September of 2015.

    BTW: You can send in an application in full if you wish. And I think there's a BuildaSnowbear store at the HVC Mall.

    Me: Really? That's great! Uh, could you send the blank application so we can fill it in, please?

    Ojo: And also send a map to the mall. I get lost easily.

    Me: And that's why you stay close to me so you won't be lost. How's the bike riding going?

    Ojo: Better! But, I can't ride my bike now. It's still Winter and there's snow and ice everywhere.

    Me: Yeah. I wonder if Ed would like something from the mall before we leave.

    Ojo: Maybe he'd like a Snowbear!

    Me: (chuckles) Maybe...
