Popped In To Ponder

"Is Santa so jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live?"

Wonder why me gadget threw that one up? Apart from having stacks of  boxes containing Christmas decorations, with nowhere to store ‘em, I aint seen any sign of a yuletide approaching on the outside of me lofty retreat.

Oops... there's the door bell.

  3. No sudden moves, Valance, or you'll be sorry.

    Right-e-o... off visiting, maybe gone a while.

  4. Maybe Santa's jolly because the reindeer only need the fairy dust on Christmas Eve - the rest of the time he gets it all to himself.

  5. Or... maybe the fairy dust does "things" to Santa at Christmas time.

    I don't wanna be a party pooper, but I am pondering about the level of alcohol Santa consumes on his Christmas delivery round.

    Just because Christmas is but once a year, is no excuse to knock back the scotch and fly by night. Santa may have a few fairies to sprinkle dust, here there and everywhere, but you would have thought 'elf and safety would have been on hand to stop the intoxicated jolly fella from jumping behind the reigns.

    Anyone for a minced Thai?

  6. Ah, now I do know about the drinking.

    What happens is that he has loads of those expandable water carrier thingies. At each house he leaves the pressies and then tips the drink into the appropriate carrier (it's not just scotch, you see - he gets sherry and brandy and eggnog and buttered rum and Cointreau)He also boxes up all the mince pies and licorice. This is sensible because giving at pressies means he loses ballast and as he needs to corner pretty jolly quickly, he wants that sleigh to be stable.

  7. Now look what you've gone and done, Patsy... Given Valance ammo fer me ballast!

  8. I'll admit the thought did cross my mind, but for once I wasn't being flippant. I just liked the science behind Patsy's reasoning. Much better, I think, than Santa employing a little elf with a big jacksy, to sit further along the sleigh after each drop off.

  9. That's me redundant at Christmas, then!

  10. If the land is free, why is someone always trying to sell me something?
