|12:49 pm - Christmas bells those Christmas bells, ringing through the land!|
You're not late sending out Christmas cards until after all potential holidays are over, right?
FYI, I think I have a final list of who I'll send to. Several of you are on it. Anyone I get a card from is on it.
Now I just have to *do* it.
Fortunately, the ADF member Database has a good amount of my LJ friends listed with sharable info. . . I'd feel very uncomfortable using my position as an Office Elf to find addresses that were confidential :) Similarly, I'm happy that no one I know from school has listed their directory information as "do not release", because I'd feel similarly icky about digging for information in the student database. It's one thing to have access. . . it's a whole other thing to use it for personal stuff.
Going through my LJ friends list and the people I've met in ADF in the past year, I've realized that I've become much richer in friends, even if I'll be much poorer for the stamps I have to buy to send out. I added an entire page of addresses to my old list. And if I get a card from you, you can expect a card back, if not this year, than next year, or whenever I get around to it. :)
Of course, I will miss some people. For others, I simply don't have an address. There are also those who I don't even have a last name for (heck, for some of you, I still only have an LJ username). For still others, I'm meaning to send something nicer than just a card, but haven't gotten it together yet.
Last year, I failed miserably when it came to sending out cards. I actually think there might still be some stamped ones sitting on a bookshelf somewhere that never made it to the post office (so some of you might get last year's card, too, if I'm feeling silly).
This year, they're late. Very late. But not as late as they were two years ago, when I sent them on Christmas Eve. On a bright note, I can point out that I wasn't alone: I had to stuff and shove the cards into the box that night, and they barely fit.
Three years ago I think they went out in September.
I am nothing if not inconsistent.

Hm. I wonder how many cards you could have addressed and mailed during the time it took you to write that post? ::poke::
In any case, we'll have to fill you in on last night's Yule ritual soon. That, and yesterday morning's Ack! It's sunrise! march.
Yes, I look forward to reading about the rite :) Esp. since I wasn't able to make the short trip :)
Hey, I have plans to get my cards out at the end of Jan when I have a breather. It may become an annual thing for me.
There's a place in town that sells "Happy January" cards for those of us who can't get them out before Christmas.
w00tw00t. Friended is always good :)
That's sweet that you do that! :) I've never sent cards out before... shows what a good friend I am. XD
Well, once you get out of school so far, it's the only way to keep people updated with your new address.
You know, aside from talking to them regularly. And who would want to do that?
They're not late until after 12th night.
When's that? I need a new deadline to blow past.
OMG! Your post title! I thought I was the only one who remembered the Snoopy Vs The Red Baron songs...
I only did cards for our local Yule Card Exchange that I started... so I've got a whole 5 cards to send out. I think 3 of them have stamps... one I'm giving to her in person next week. The other 4 are still waiting to be mailed. SOOOOO you're doing better than I am. LOL
Zoe. (a.k.a. Deb Beckwith - there, now you have my name LOL)
haha. If they'd managed to go out, I might agree. But they haven't yet :)
*snicker*... Neither have mine... oops!
