Of Parties & Catalogs-

Well, we had our annual Christmas Party for the Book Elves in the Cataloging Cave at Foggygates last night and, well- let's simply say that we won't be posting pictures on the website anytime soon. To begin with, I could be wrong, but I'd always assumed (before last night) that the question "how many drunk reindeer can you stuff into the boss's office?" was rhetorical...

But before they stumbled off into the night, swathed in plastic holly and singing "I Saw Mommy [deleted]-ing Santa Claus", the book elves finished work on our new catalog-

"BOOKS ON DECORATIVE ARTS- including folk art, interiors, metalware & iron, textiles, & other Americana & related subjects", with a special section on the China Trade, features 284 books and catalogs, and is available for browsing on our website, or as a printed catalog. If you would like a printed copy, please send us your mailing address.

Those danged Elves really know how to have a good time...don't they. And in the for what it's worth category, I just recently got the song "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" out of my head. Thanks for the reminder.

mike- yes, the book elves get around and know how to have a good time. one would be tempted to hang out with them more if they bathed once in a while.

as for 'mommy kissing santa claus' do what they do- substitute another verb, and then start altering other words to go with it. hours and hours of fun, and when co-workers as why your smiling and you reply 'I'm singing christmas carols in my head' it's even more satisfying. for more xmas carol suggestions go here and click the "carol" link-
