Well, well, well… welcome to (meteorologically speaking that is) winter… officially, yah… December 1st, although those of us who’ve had the pleasure of freezing our asses off and dealing with snow, sludge, blizzard conditions et al probably feel like it’s been months already, right?

But hey, look on the bright side, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas yeah? In our house preparations are complete (yeah, we start soon as the turkey’s washed down) Lady M dusts off the heirloom decorations and trims the tree, our dear daughter gets her arty game face on and makes new baubles using all sorts of art and craft supplies,
…meanwhile me and the grandson hunker down over the dining table with glue, fluffy white stuff in a bag, A santa hat and come up with…

Let’s make some farkin noize…

Oi to the punks, Oi to the Rudes, Oi to the Trad-Skins… everybody wins…!!!

Yeah, feelin’ pretty sharp this morning like… hope everybody’s well out there? or at least as well as can be expected under the circumstances…! What can we find around this disaster zone today then…

Well, as we learned yesterday there’s a December meetup for Chitown Vamps coming in December… You can find the details at The Chicago Vampire Meetup Group page

During the week I wandered across to the West and caught up with Lady Shannon McCabe to see what’s going down this Christmas… well, seems like the Wonder Woman of Sacramento is taking a Personal Leave for Christmas… don’t blame her, she must be tired from all the amazing work she’s done this year. She did let me in on some upcomings though…
