E-Elf c*cks up

well, even the best laid plans, eh. . .
E-Elf was so distracted with "lists" and "things to do" and "generally looking busy" and "clip-boards" and "ticking boxes". . . you know what support staff are like. . . that E forgot the global time differences
having realised there are time differences,
looks slightly abashed and very sheepish

imagine, if you will, how Santa gets around all dwellings (houses, bungalows, flats, apartments, igloos and - we hope - mud huts) on the whole globe at the stroke of midnight; you can (imagine this) because he does!

a very smug looking and on-time
Secret Santa

now imagine E, trying to coordinate one tiny little minuscule smaller even than a teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini list. . . only involving three continents and not even on the stroke of midnight of the day itself. . .
. . .
(altho one does have East Coast to West Coast time difference, granted)
(and I,LTV herself is never quite sure if Norfolk is in
a different time zone to London Town, it sometimes seems to be)
(or perhaps a different planet)
(and are France and England on the same continent?
same continental shelf, possibly,
but really England ought to have a whole continent to itself,
don't you think?)
. . .
(I digress). . .
. . .could E do it?
could E heck
useless blinking f*ecking Elf
so, anyhow, amends have been taken and E firstly has to do a little snow shovelling. . .
. . .then is consigned to the wrapping department, where E has to iron out last year's unused bits and pieces. . .

. . .and then E has to match up all the papers and bows and ribbons into coordinating/contrasting sets. . .

in the meantime, you don't need to worry about E messing up your gifts, because no wrapping was required. . .

oooh, wrapping...hadn't considered that! (Whew)

The very Happiest of Christmases to you, dearest View! All the love and hugs I have to you.

I, Like The View said...

see, e-gifting saves the planet in more ways than one! (reducing a carbon footprint by no paper or mailing)(altho I was trying to work out in my head whether computer manufacture and internet hosting and electricity made an even bigger CO2 contribution. . . but then my brain frizzed out)

lots and lots of love and hugs to you too, dear shot - hope your cold clears up soon

A triumph of organisation really :)
So clever, so thoughtful and SUCH FUN.
Thank you dear I and happy c
Christmas again:)
(I'm never sure what time zone I'm in myself so other times zones are a complete mystery to me)

Very nice I, Like The View. You did a great job, a lot of fun for all. Now tell me who my secret santa was!

A very Merry Christmas to you and all you hold dear. It is a little after 6:00 a.m. here in Wisconsin USA on Christmas Eve, 12/24/2009. I don't even know if I'm early or late with my greeting, but it is from my heart just the same.
