    That sounds good. I'll be a little late. I have a BD dinner to go to for my DGS turning 17 today. I'd bring back some "Better Than Almost Anything Cake" to share, but I am sure it will get eaten up.

    BTW, you girls are just INCORRIGIBLE! What kinds of things are you teaching the younger members of the squad here?!?!?! We older ladies are supposed to be setting good examples, not leading them astray.

    Just remember to save me a chair next to the wine cooler tonight. TaTa!

    I go to work for 8 stressful hours and come home. I come here to check in and laugh so hard I think the DH thinks I am visiting the naughty corner on my way home.
    Happy Quilting.

    You mean that you didn't??? I thought you were helping to decorate your new tree!

    Never know what could happen during the day...it's getting close to reveal day and SOME of us are getting pretty crafty at figuring out how to get the packages open early.

    Hey Deb...do you think it would count if we let our grandbabies loose on the packages??? They are sweet and innocent and don't know how to read "don't open till reveal day"...besides my little one could just drool all over it and the tape would surely pop open.

    That surely wouldn't count as naughty. Who would blame our sweet, innocent little grandbabies?
    Happy Quilting.

    I think you'll have better luck using Tink as an excuse.

    1. put the box in front of you.
    2. start tugging on the nearest tape and pp-p-u-u-u-ll-ll-ll.
    3. if you hit a cross tape, bite the cross tape till it tears, and continue as in step 2.
    4. tear any brown paper, or outside wrapping paper and throw over your left shoulder. ( right shoulder if left handed)
    5. open the box top, one flap at a time. if you have a box with no flaps, you can use your non-fabric scissors to carefully cut flaps. or you can turn the box over and over until you find flaps.
    6. look carefully to determine if items are wrapped in bright colored papers, or not.
    5 1/2. clear the box of any edibles as you may need strength and nutrients to deal with opening the individual parcels. no good fainting into the box from hunger.
    7. carefully remove fabric quarters and hang them about your person with gay abandon. this adds to the festive atmosphere and tone of the occasion. i always bring hair pins for this part and re-use any sticky tape to adhere to my chin (no unkind remarks about hairy chins and hair pins, thank you. (nose in the air)). a word to the wise, hanging a fat 1/4 from your forehead makes it more difficult to eat any goodies, and hard to see what's in the package. personally, i hate getting chocolate on my quilt fabric.
    8. continue as you will from here. i am busy eating my chocolate! is it illegal to send liquor in the mail?
    I think we should start by state. The states starting with an A should open first . . . you know, like Arizona.

    I do some of my best quilting when I'm drinking. Or at least I think so at the time.

    Funniest thing I have read today

    I laughed so loud dh and the kids were startled. I can just see Oscar our ugly little dog pooping batting balls.

    Thank you for a laugh, I really needed it today.

    British Columbia would be next right? That way I do not need to wait until getting home from work on reveal day.

    i think that states that are the only one starting with that letter get to go first. for instance-- utah, and pennsylvania.

    I lost IT! I had it but I must have put it down somewhere like I do with my glasses or keys and then spend hours looking for them. I looked everywhere for it. I looked at the community parade, the hanging of the greens at church, the community sing a long, the tree trimming with the senior citizens at work, the mall, the mall santa with children and their wish lists, I bought a warm snickerdoodle and ate it, and even drank a mimosa and still couldn't find it. Somehow I have lost my Christmas! HELP!

    Okay, remain calm...take some deep breaths and listen to some Christmas songs. Then start decorating your house and don't forget to include the smell of fresh pine trees. Hopefully that will help!
