Hello, dears.

A quick update on the holiday giftings. 

I've received packages from Rae and Molly -- thank you!  They were put together with a lot of thoughtfulness and were hugely fun to open.  Hugs all around, and thanks for helping me try scents I've been dying to get my paws on.

Lucy is in the midst of shipping hers.  2 shipped, 2 not (one of which is mine).  Shipping place was being picky about packaging, doh!

My packages went to the post office (finally!) on Saturday.  I really do apologize for the delay, but I hope you all appreciate that I've left out my cold germs and didn't send them to you as an extra holiday gift.  This time, no giant ice storms or power outages interfered with my packing plans.  A care package is also on its way to Tally.

Thank you all for participating -- this has been fun!

I had a whole lot of fun with this, putting together the packages and all. And in my opinion the delays are only prolonging the festivities. I mean, for everyone else, the holidays are over, but for us, it's still prezzie time! :D

I got me an Emma package today!! I'd already gotten the Rae package. I am positively /rolling/ in goodies!

This also had my Invasion of the Flesh-Eating Reindeer from Uranus, from our group order (THANK you, Emma, for placing that order/enabling!!!), which is so absolutely perfect for me!! I swear, every time I sniff it I catch another note to it. Crumbly gingerbread, and rum that my skin doesn't eat (squee), and clove, and a hint of brandy, something oddly peppery, and candied fruit and...Mmmmmm! It's so much fun!

I'm so glad you got your package and are enjoying it! :) The soaps were fun to pick out -- I'm so addicted to that Etsy seller. Her sugar scrubs are to die for.

Glad also that Flesh-Eating Reindeer is working for you. I had to call the shop and argue with them about not receiving one of the bottles we ordered. They were nice enough, but a little skeptical. All's well that ends well, and I'd be inclined to order from them again in a situation where shipping can be split (or where I want multiple bottles). I'm still figuring out how I feel about Reindeer. I haven't gotten to wear it enough to decide if I like it or if it's too much. Either way, I plan to let it age a bit and see how it is then.

I was giggling gleefully over the soaps. Really!

And it took me about 15-20 minutes to completely open the package and go through my Preciouses Sorting Rituals. By which time the chocolate was, sadly, all gone.

Reindeer is being a bit fleet of foot today. I didn't do my usual jojoba oil wrist-slather pre-application, and it's low humidity, so my skin has eaten it up too fast. I'm hoping it's the combination of factors and not just that I devour this scent. Luckily I also put it in my Clocket this morning, so I am still engulfed in sexy, boozy, gingery goodness.

I'm sorry we had a missing-bottle incident, but I'm very glad they were willing to make good.

I'm a bad girl and didn't comment here.

I got my Lucy package, and it was heavy and full of wonders.
