St. Knickerless Day (Advent Calendar, Day 6)

ElvesFinalForNow

The elf in the corner is not me! It’s Emily Tilton! She even said so her very own self. Ask her.

Last year I wrote a series of “naughty elf” Christmas stories inspired by an exchange with Emma Gardner. If you want the stories, go here:

I am now a reformed and law-abiding Head Elf, I promise you! Others, unfortunately, fail to believe me. (I sincerely hope Mrs. Claus spanks them and lets me watch.)

When I asked Minelle to create the artwork for this year’s Advent Calendar, she started chuckling as she drew a naughty elf in the corner. (For the record, I requested Mrs. Claus holding a wooden spoon. Period. No mention of naughty elves!)

Then Katie T (just to point out that this girl’s last name is TROUBLE, so I wouldn’t believe anything she says!), in creating the graphics for Minelle’s artwork online, concocted this far-fetched story that the polka dots in the letter “A” of “Ana’s Advent Calendar” somehow “proved” that I was the elf in the corner.

Luckily for truth, justice, and the American way, Emily stepped up and took ownership. She is the naughty elf! Yet over at Cat’s blog in response to this special meme I wrote for her, the antics grew ever worse. Not only did Cat end up implicating herself in naughtiness, but Ami Starsong let it slip that she owns a pair of “spotty knickers,” as she calls them.

So, because this is Ana and Ana loves a good laugh (don’t we all?) I asked Miss Naughty Ami if she would like to contribute a pair as a prize for the Advent Calendar. Neither of us has been able to say “knicker” or “spotty” with a straight face since then!

Part of the conversation in which Ami and I discussed today’s fun a month ago:

I’m laughing so much at this. Ami’s St. Knickerless prize? lol….

Minelle and Katie had WAY too much fun with that elf stuff. I’m going to post links to last year’s elf stories where Head Elf Ana did indeed get it from Mrs. Claus. I still say this one isn’t me, though. Sue agrees. She says if it were me, the bottom would be a lot redder. LOL who needs enemies with friends like these?

I can just hear your conversation with your husband:

“Honey, can I have seven pounds for a prize, plus postage?”
“What for?”
“Well, I want to send a pair of knickers.”
“Ami, no! Do you know what kind of sick people will come out of the woodwork if you offer that?”
“I don’t mean used ones. Clean ones. Brand new!”
“That’s supposed to make it better?”
“Oh, please let me. It’s for Ana’s Advent Calendar.”
“Why does she want knickers for that? I don’t think you should talk to that girl anymore. She sounds like an odd duck.”
“No, Dan, I swear, it’s not like that!”

Ami’s response to me a few days ago, after I’d threatened dire action if she didn’t tell him about her prize:

I finally told Dan about the knickerless prize this morning.  You must be a secret fly on our wall! He reacted exactly as you predicted!  One very high lifted eyebrow and then he said “Your soiled knickers!”  I was horrified.  I said “No, a new pair!  When I find out the size and if the person is willing to let me have their address.”
He really does think I’m a nutcase!  He is perfectly happy to pick a name out of a hat though!
Ami’s take on this whole nuttiness:

How did you come up with the name for St. Knickerless Day?

Well, I have this rather large collection of knickers…  Then I thought of a play on St Nicholas (thought to be the real Santa Claus) and the word Knickerless came to mind.  When I saw Minelle’s painting of the knickerless elf in the corner everything fell into place.  I asked Ana, and she thought it could be a fun day.  So there you are.

Why did you decide to donate a pair of knickers to Ana’s Advent Calendar?

Because I have several pairs of “spotty knickers”.  It was hilarious because I emailed a picture of them to Ana and I was really worried the world could suddenly be presented with a picture of loads of my knickers!  They are my comfortable everyday knickers that I buy from one of my favourite shops, but they are very pretty too!

No, seriously. What were you thinking?

I was/am serious!  I love nice knickers.  I love nice bras too.  I am not Italian, but I like to think I took a lesson long ago, from Italian women.  That is that they always wear amazing underwear regardless of age or shape or size.  I have my everyday stuff, and then I have my “knock ’em dead” stuff that I buy at sale times because I can’t afford it at any other time.  Even if Dan or my doctor are the only people who see my underwear, I feel better knowing it is nice underwear!  And one always has to think about one’s grandmother’s advice “You could be knocked down by a bus – and then what would you do if your underwear wasn’t presentable!”

How did you explain this to your husband?
With difficulty.  He has always thought me somewhat bonkers.  Now he knows I am for sure.  He is wondering who started all this in the first place.  He says “Are they all like you?!”

NO!  Good grief!

Are you expecting a barn burner and/or come to Jesus meetin’ for pulling this stunt?

Cat kindly explained to me what a barn burner was, and so I probably haven’t had one of those yet, although I may have come awfully close on several memorable occasions.  After a while they all sort of blur together!  I have no idea whatsoever what a “Come to Jesus Meetin'” is.  Someone will have to explain that to me too.  I come from a very sheltered background.  Can’t you tell?
 
I think Dan will just wipe his brow and be completely resigned that his wife has found a whole gaggle of similar women.  LOL!   (And men too for that matter!)

What are your favorite shops for buying knickers?

My favourite shop for everyday knickers is “White Stuff”.  So pretty. So comfortable.  My favourite sexy knickers are by Janet Reger and also Tom Baker.  Marks and Spencers have improved their underwear recently as well, but can’t always be relied upon to stock my size in a bra.  LOL!

How many do you own?

This is just a tad embarrassing.  I would say over a hundred pairs of knickers at the last vague count.  I have, however, thinned out my bra collection of late and will be sending a batch to Africa.  (Do not laugh – we have big collection boxes in our towns and they have to be clean, nicely packaged, and then they are sent off!)

Do you ever buy knickers after drinking too much sloe gin?

What an insinuation!  Moi!  This is Ami Starsong you are talking about – the one who butter wouldn’t melt….!!!

Have you been dipping in the eggnog too early this year?
Not yet.  But now Cat has given me a recipe, I plan to.  In fact, we could be twins in a corner somewhere.  Who knows?

What is the difference between spotty knickers and polka-dot panties?

Hmmmm….  Looked it up in the dictionary and spotty means “covered in spots”.  I couldn’t find polka-dots anywhere.  But I do know that polka means a “woman” in Polish.  So that is quite weird as I am half Polish.  A “dotty” woman?  LOL!

What will you do if a man wins today’s prize?

My first inclination will be to laugh.  Loudly.  Then I will set to and seek out some “men’s spotty knickers”!

How will you explain your behavior to Mrs. Claus?

This is a tricky one.  Do you think Mrs Claus is the sort who would listen to a naughty elf?  I can see by your furrowed brow that you don’t.  So I think I shall just have to blame my actions on this crowd of scoundrels who call themselves sister-elves.  And then run like heck for the hills!

Who is the real elf in the corner?

As Katie says, if you look at the spots in the A for Ana, and then look at the knickers around that elf’s knees, there can only be one answer for it.  (And I buried all my spotty knickers at midnight so you won’t be able to find them!)

What message would you like to give to the Advent Calendar players today?

I would like to ask them a few little questions concerning life at the North Pole. [Ana’s note: you can pick one or more of the questions; you don’t have to answer them all. Ami likes to be wordy!]
 
1  What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?
 
2  What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they?  What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?
 
3  Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
 
4  When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
 

5  Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc.  If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why?

(Ami is out this morning and will respond to comments in the afternoon.)

    Ami, you’re cracking me up. St Knickerless day? I’m not sure I approve – just let me check – does that mean we have to go without the sexiest item of clothing for the day? I like my knickers too much to ignore them for a whole day! On the other hand, if St Knickerless day just means we worship the ornaments that adorn our shapely bottoms, then I’m all for it.
    Love the knickers pictures on your blog (mind you I love knickers too) and thank God for husbands who can’t be arsed to read our ramblings 🙂

    Now for your questions
    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?

    Its made out of North silly!

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?
    Aurora Borealis are a beautiful florescent green before dipping into the eggnog, and a sort of sickly scary green (bright lights bright lights aaaggghhh) after tippling on too much cheer

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
    Totally – unless you’re on the other side.

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
    Its about four years – its that long since we had enough snow here in Ireland

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why?

    A nice flat wooden spatula – covers more surface area – yum!

    You have a great christmas, and this year instead of leaving out a stocking for filling – try a pair of knickers – you might have to tape the holes in the legs though.

      And Tara, you are cracking me up! If all the answers are like yours, I am going to have to go for a lie down after answering them all! Believe me, going knickerless can be a wonderful feeling – but only when the north wind isn’t blowing in the wrong direction, like today!

      I love your answers to my questions. Will definitely call upon you to throw snowballs at all the people chasing me with wooden spoons! My northern lights tend towards rainbow coloured after too much egg nog – or they will when I finally manage to get some of that looked forward to mixture down my throat.

      Thank you so much for playing on St Knickerless Day, and thanks to Ana – this is just pure fun!

    Unfortunately I have never made angels in the snow, and I don’t go for eggnog or similar. There is rarely any snow (one night last year and only in the mountain area) where I live as it rarely gets to freezing.

    I do however have a penchant for spanking naughty elves, keeping their bums nice and warm for when they are not wearing any knickers.

    As for Mrs Claus’s spoons, the best is a nice big one with a large surface area to leave nice bright oval marks……..

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what color are they? What color are they When You havebeen drinking too much egg nog?

    Ok, I must admit I’ve never had egg nog ….. how does it taste? lol, but I know how a Northern Lights looks. I had seen them several times. Getting to see a real “norrsken” (it is Northen Light in Swedish.) is something special that you will not forget in a hurry, it is so different from anything else you can see in the sky.
    Different colors, green, red, blue and violet can be found in ..
    You can call it Aurora Borealis also..

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
    Absolutely! No problem!!!

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
    Last year, with my Children…it was fun.

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why?
    No, thank you, In my World, wooden spoons are meant use for cooking. It is all, let it be so..lol

      You have seen many more colours in the norrsken than I have! I only saw them once many moons ago, and just greens and golds. Glad you can make snow angels too! Such fun!

      I have to agree that wooden spoons should just be used for cooking – but unfortunately my Starman has other ideas. He would agree with Leo, but frankly it’s just too cold at this time of the year! Thank you so much for joining in.

Aurora Borealis…I have never seen, but my husband has…I am just going to imagine lots of colors swirled together. I don’t drink egg nog usually – and if I have a taste it is the non-alcoholic variety so hopefully I would see the colors the same 🙂

      Hi Terps and thank you for playing!

      Sorry but wooden spoons are made only from wood – not feathers! Shame on you Cat!

      Just remind yourself never to let me lead you astray, because you may then get to feel that wood sooner than you had anticipated, and snowball fights are brilliant fun! I think the north pole is made like a candy cane in rainbow colours and we can all get a taste as it’s yummy! There is probably a sign pointing the way, but then, having had too many egg nogs I find directions difficult to follow and I wouldn’t wish to bump into any angry polar bears.

    The North Pole is an enormous candy cane stuck into the snow. It’s easily the size of a rhinoceros upended onto its bottom, and just as angry.

    (We elves are told not to get near it, and Mrs. Claus spanks us if we do. The last time this happened to me, I was looking up at the Aurora Borealis and watching it turn a lovely shade of Purple as I drank the eggnog in my hand (shhh! Mrs. Claus gets mad if we drink on the job). That’s when my snowball team showed up. I’m usually reliable, but that night I was rather poor in my aim–I kept falling down and inadvertently make snow angels as I tried to get up.

    Sigh. Mrs. Claus did show up, but when I said “Please, may I be spanked with big candy-making spoon?” she said, “Naughty elves don’t get to choose. Come inside and get over my lap, Emily Elf.”)

    When I first heard of St. KnickerLESS, I assumed it would be something far different! Lol!

    Ami, you would know if you ever received a barn-burner, without question. 🙂

    Oh, and a “come to Jesus meetin'” is used in a couple ways in my neck of the woods. Most often nowadays, it refers to a very intense lecture/scolding at which you are strongly exhorted about your misbehavior (and/or sins), told how to change your attitude to become a better person, and the proper way to comport yourself in future.

    Originally, it referred to going to church, often the fire-and-brimstone revival meetings, where you are told you must come to accept Jesus as your savior, or burn in hell. These meetings were very lively, and those who wanted to go enjoyed them very much. Those who did not want to go – not so much. 😉

    There is a third version used by the corporal punishment folks. There is another meaning attributed to this phrase, that I am familiar with, that is yet another version custom-tailored to a certain subset of society. I’ll have to share that in email (nothing horrible, just specific enough that I don’t want to post it).

    On to the questions!

    1. What do I THINK the North Pole is made of?! Everybody KNOWS it is made of cotton candy, rock candy, marshmallows and fluff, and flavored shaved ice!

    2. The Northern Lights are aka Aurora Borealis (dawn of the north), or Rainbow Lights, and they are multi-colored – usually pale green/yellow green with pink, and sometimes have red, yellow, blue, violet/purple, darker green. (School report, many years ago, for an A. Lol!)

    3. You definitely want me on your side in a snowball fight!

    4. My last snow Angel was two years ago, too sick last year with one flu after another. However! There is snow outside this morning, school was cancelled, and – dang it, the post few days I’ve been coming down with my first bad head and chest cold. I’ve been delaying it rather successfully, but I think it started getting me good yesterday and today. Grumble….

    5. Hmm… I guess one like my regular everyday cooking/stirring spoon. It looks like a really big flatware teaspoon, without the slightly curved neck. I have lots of wooden spoons I use to cook with, but that one is very versatile so it is my favorite. I suppose its versatility means its shape would work for non-cooking applications!

    Loved your post, Ami! I can imagine your conversation with Dan! Too funny!

    • Irishey says:

      There were no comments when I started mine! Loved reading through everybody’s so far. I forgot to answer about the effects of too much eggnog on the color of the Northern Lights. Eggnog makes all colors prettier, and blurrier!

      For those who don’t like the really thick eggnog, you can substitute the heavy cream for lighter cream, half and half, or even whole milk. Skim milk is not great, but it will work if you are accustomed to drinking it.

      I don’t care for the heavy spices, especially the amount of nutmeg or allspice called for in eggnog and other creamy fall/winter drinks. Sprinkles or pinches of these spices are plenty! While I like eggnog, I only want one or two a couple times each season. White Russians, Slippery Nipples and Bailey’s cream liqueurs in coffee or half and half are my favorite creamy holiday beverages.

      Heh Irishey!

      I think I have probably had my share of the lecturing type of ‘come to Jesus meeting’ over my life from one person or another. Can’t wait to be emailed with the meaning of the third version!

      Glad to hear you’re good at snowball fighting, but if I have you on my side you’ll have to promise to go get your winter ‘flu jab! I had mine a couple of months ago – just to sound smug!

      I like your version of the north pole too! I wonder if you would get your tongue stuck on it if you lick it and is it frozen? Got my tongue stuck on a metal gate once! Just don’t ask ‘why’ I was licking it!!!

    I like to think that the North Pole is actually made of cheese. That sounds like a much better thing that any other choice. Like I think of stories of adventurers before the modern era who would have been helped by finding it cheese.

    I’m totally undependable in a snowball fight. My Master say that He’s all good with a whip, but if He has to throw something (like fighting stars) all bets are off. And well, I failed physical education repeatedly in school. Yes, I cannot aim at all.

    I like thick spoons, like my favorite cooking spoon, which my Master has now joked about a few times, having seen it laying on the counter and knowing that I’ve started reading spanking fiction. I’m wondering if one of these days, He’s gonna grab it and use it 😀 I’m trying not to picture cookie batter or some such on my butt

      You’d freeze your butt if you lived in a clothing optional household here! One of my many shortcomings according to my Starman is that I always forget to turn the lights off when I leave a room, and have a blatant tendency to turn up the heating dials! Does admitting to wearing only Dolce and Gabbanna Light Blue in bed redeem me?

      Snowball fighting is such great fun – you just must try it! Practice makes perfect you know!

      Cookie batter doesn’t adhere well enough! Try chocolate syrup or be seasonal and use some Christmas cake mixture! Just don’t use holly leaves as decoration! I’ll lend you my French jam spoon if you’d like to try a very thick, sturdy, long-handled spoon! LOL!

    I love the words spotty knickers. And I love your husband’s ‘your soiled ones?’ I also loved the pics of your knickers on your blog (that’s probably the first thing anyone who visits this blog did you know…

    So questions- North pole is made of cotton candy. Pink – but a very soft pink so it looks whitish. 🙂

    Northern Lights – what Tara said. They’re beautiful naturally and even more beautiful when I’m feeling toasty.

    Snowball fights – no, probably not. 😦 but it’s the truth and I’m stickin’ to it. Oh, I love the term Come to Jesus Meetin’ by the way. How cool is that! I’ve used it but don’t really know what it means…

    Angels in the snow – shoot. Can’t remember. I will make them this year.

    And the wooden spoon – just saw these giant ones at a shop here. Can I attach a pic here? Ana? My husband even tried it out just on his palm at the shop. We got a few looks but I think they were just jealous.

    This post makes my day. I am feeling silly and happy at the moment. Thank you!

      Hey Natasha, I am sooo glad you are here! The words ‘spotty knickers’ do have a certain ring about them! I told Dan I called them ‘dirty knickers’ and he said “No, they are soiled knickers.” I just want to ensure everyone that I do not SOIL my knickers!!!! LOL!

      Gasp! I warned Miss Ana that my knickers would gain notoriety! I also told her I was not going to post pictures of them, but maybe three pairs out of over a hundred isn’t too bad? I must be kinky, but I have always liked nice underwear, but it has to fit well, and it has to be pretty, even the everyday cotton variety!

      I am so glad someone besides me didn’t know what a come to Jesus meeting was!

      Oh I wish you would attach a picture of the giant wooden spoons! They sound scary – but lush! And believe me, I have quite a good collection of the things, and more than a couple have been split in two whilst being employed in the service of warming up my tender backside!

      I’ve never been told a post of mine has made anyone’s day before. I am quite taken aback. Thank you. (Isn’t she nice, Ana?! She can play again despite being hopeless at snowball fights and being relegated to the back field!)

    Lol. So much fun to read.
    North Pole is made of pixie dust because it’s all sparkly and magical.
    Northern lights are the aurora borealis and made up of lots of colors – green, blue, red. If I’ve been drinking too much egg nog they’re probably nothing because I don’t handle my egg nog well.
    I can’t be relied on during a snowball fight because I’m not a fan of snow (even though we get tons every year). You can usually find me inside making the hot chocolate.
    Snow angels — last year. Not yet this year, but could right now so probably soon.
    And I’d have to choose a heavy, thuddier, wooden spoon.

    1. I think the North Pole is made up of cotton candy, rock candy, marshmallows and a giant peppermint cane for the pole itself. And there are lots of beautiful colored lights everywhere.

    2. The Northern Lights are the Aurora Borealis. The Lights are mixed with greens, blues and pinky purples I think. I have only seen them a few times but I don’t live far enough north to get all the intense colors. The very first time I saw the Northern Lights was when I was in college and my friend woke me up at 1:00 am on a below zero January night to go outside to watch the light show. I like my egg nog without spirits so no changes in the colors here.

    3. I’m ok in an snow ball fight as long as I don’t have to throw to far. I can never get much distance on my throws. I can make great snowballs so if I get the right partner I’ll supply the ammunition for the fight.

    4. I don’t remember when I made my last Snow Angel but I remember my best one. I lived in South Carolina years ago where it snows very occasionally. My roommate was from Florida and she had never even seen snow before. One Sunday we got about 2″ of snow and in South Carolina if it snows nothing moves until the snow melts. With stores not open and no where to go I taught her to make Snow Angels in our backyard. We made snowmen families and had a snow ball fight. We both were soaking wet before we quit but it was a great day to remember.

    5. Confession. My husband and I have a vanilla relationship so no wooden spoons for me thanks.

      Hello Terry and thank you so much for joining in the fun! Your description of the north pole is just great. So many people round here have a sweet tooth! Only one north pole made from cheese! Like the idea of coloured lights too!

      I only saw the northern lights once too, from an aeroplane many years ago! Beautiful! I am determined to make lots of eggnog this Christmas, both alcoholic and non alcoholic! I have a feeling it is probably like Advocaat!

      I am glad you are game for the snowball fight! Remember – the snowballs are made out of ice cream so are extra sticky and extra yummy to make, throw and eat afterwards!

      South Carolina sounds lovely. I have visited Florida, but not South Carolina, but it sounds very like the UK in that we only need a couple of inches of snow over here and everything grinds to a standstill! Even the trains cease to run!

      You can be any kind of relationship you want! I am sure Mrs Claus will be glad of a hand with the eggnog making, and the icecream in preparation for the snowball fight!

    I don’t know about anyone else but I think St. Knickerless Day may be my new favorite day ever! 😉 My face hurts from giggling so much reading everything from Ana and Ami’s conversation about knickers and each and every comment that follows. Same as Irishey {waves hard} there were no comments on my first read (c’mon, I KNOW I’m not the only who reads all this awesome a few times before commenting….right? she asked with obvious newbie status in mind)
    Knickers, heehee, I love that word!
    I have a habit of being knickerless when I’m just lounging around writing (although I do wear sweatpants or something because chairs can be cold completely bare) but the truth is I have an addiction to knickers/panties/lingerie etc… buying Christmas ornaments isn’t my only obsession when I go to Cape May, they have the best lingerie store called Lace Silhouettes and I never leave without a bunch of new knickers and I’m babbling again so onto the questions {rubs hands together with glee again}

    Ok so I know the North Pole has lots and lots of snow but only those of us who still know the truth (that Santa really does exist) can see everything else that’s really there; they have mountains made of Marshmallow Fluff and when it snows you can stick your tongue out to catch the snowflakes which taste just like confectioners sugar (on Christmas Eve some of the Elves mix red and green colored sprinkles and blow them into the air to add the flavor of Christmas to the sweet snow), there are also gigantic lickable candy canes outside to lead the way to Santa’s Workshop- again, only true believers can see them. There is also a test for those in doubt, there’s a special frozen candy cane you have to lick before you can enter Santa’s workshop, if you’re a non-believer your tongue gets stuck so you aren’t allowed inside.

    I’ve never seen the Aurora Borealis but I know it’s greenish in color, if I have a little too much nog, I still can’t see it from New Jersey but I imagine those lights would be all kinds of swirly.
    As for snowball fights, I’m your girl, I can hurl a snowball with the best of them, long arms come in handy and I’m almost as fast as Buddy the Elf.
    I haven’t made a snow Angel in a few years but I’m determined to make a snow Angel this year because it’s so much fun!

    Now as far as the wooden spoon for naughty spanking, I would ask (with the utmost respect of course) Mrs. Claus to pick whichever one she thinks would be best for someone who’s never been spanked (yet- a girl can dream though) and hopefully she’ll go easy on me the first time around ;-D

    And once again, as per usual, I’m smiling hard inbetween all the giggles 😀

    OK Since I’m Canadian, I know these for a fact, so…

    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?
    – Ummm… do you *really* wanna know? Fine – well, since reindeer are also knickerless, they have to do their business somewhere! So they agreed on a spot -over the years the cold, which froze their residue, creating a pole like structure known today as the North Pole!

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?
    – Aurora Borealis and the colours vary depending on what you had to drink – or smoke as the case may be…

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
    – Duhh… this is Canada!

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
    – Well, my dog (who also goes around knickerless if you must know!) pees lovely designs, does that count? (and if you know what dogs do in the snow, you wouldn’t lie down in it!)

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why?
    – Wooden spoons hurt! Trust me, I know! My mom would use a spoon on our behinds when we were naughty… If I must be spanked, use your hands, or if you’re too much of a wussy to use your hands, a cat tail will do 😉 *meow!*

    Ami it is lovely meeting you. St. Knickerless Day has just given me a serious case of the giggles. This Advent calendar has kept me smiling for days. I love, love, love pretty, sexy knickers too much to give them up. Pretty knickers and bras are probably my biggest weakness… well next to chocolate. I have drawers of them. I always say no matter how modest and covered I have to dress – under the wrapping I am all me. It just makes me feel good. The North Pole is made up of sugar and spice and everything nice, that is why it is magical. I think the Northern lights go by the name Aureole Borealis and I bet they are beautiful. However, all lights are prettier and brighter after a little eggnog aren’t they? No, I don’t think I would be good in a snowball fight – I was always one of those last to be picked for any sport type of kid. We had about an inch of snow a couple of years ago and the kids and I ran out to make snow angels before it melted away. Ana, the elf in the corner? I think there is a saying from Shakespeare about the lady protesting too much. Hmmmm…

    1 The north pole must be made of candy and cream. Santa’s pretty chunky.

    2 The Northern lights are called Aurora Borealis (sp?). I have no idea what color they are with or without eggnog. I don’t like cold weather (even though I live in New England) so I’ll probably never travel far enough north to see them.

    3 Sorry to say, but you definitely can’t count on me in a snowball fight. The last time someone threw a snowball at me (when I was in my 20s) I broke down and cried. I was one of the youngest on my street and used to get pelted with them. I now stay far away from snowballs.

    When I read that you have over a hundred knickers I thought that’s crazy. But when I stopped to think about it, I realized I have two drawers full of undies. I have ones of cotton, silk, and nylon in just about any pattern you can think of. But no spotted ones. So a hundred undies is not too crazy.
    My answers to today’s questions:
    1. The North Pole is made out of cotton candy. What else could all that fluffy stuff be?

    2. Northern Lights are also known as Aurora Borealis and they are lots of colors; blue, green, amber/yellow, pink.

    3. I make a mean snowball but I throw like a girl.

    4. The last time I made angels in the snow was last year with my nieces and nephews. There’s no snow where I live, so I only get a chance to play in snow when I go to Chicago for Xmas.

    5. I think a good sized mixing spoon would be preferred. I don’t have much experience with wooden spoon spankings but it seems a smaller spoon would sting more since there would be less surface area striking my tender cheeks. Though a bigger spoon might be more thudy and end up causing a more lasting ache. I’m just not sure. I’ll be good so I won’t have to find out. Well, as good as I can be.

Too numerous to list but indelibly etched in my mind and heart. I am so lucky to be part of Ana’s Advent Calendar this year as I am meeting so many wonderful people. I will be busy for a while adding all your blogs to my blogroll.

    First off, a few days ago when I heard from Ana that today would be St. Knickerless Day I completely misunderstood and took the name literally so sent my wife Season off to work sans knickers. She didn’t understand until I told her it was for Ana’s Advent Calendar. She still didn’t understand but nodded her head as she removed her knickers (non-spotty, just a soft, sexy, purple color) and muttered that Ana was nutty but fun, and needed to feel the sting of Mrs. Claus’ wooden spoon.
    On the other hand it really winds Season up when she goes out without undies so I’m looking forward to an exciting Friday night. 😉

    The North Pole is made of magical snow that never makes you cold. You can frolic in it, make snowmen, snow women, snow angels and snow balls and never get cold or wet. Oh, one fact you may not have known, The Claus house at the North pole is decorated with knickers that Mrs. Claus has confiscated from naughty elves after spanking them with her wooden spoon and ensconcing them in the corner. That’s one of the reasons I thought St. Knickerless Day was a no panty day. I can’t tell you how many pairs of panties naughty Ana has contributed to the Claus décor. They are too numerous to count.

    The other name for the Northern Lights is Sidney. Nope, that’s wrong. Sidney is the name of a city in Australia and that is the wrong part of the world for the Northern Lights. They get the Aurora Australis, the Southern Polar Lights. The North Pole gets the Aurora Borealis, another name for the Northern Lights. The colors of the Northern Lights are blues, greens and purples. Their color after I’ve been drinking too much eggnog is black because I’m usually passed out.

    I can definitely be counted on in a snowball fight. I am fearless and always take the offensive. That’s probably why so many people say I am offensive. Yeah, that must be the reason.

    Been about ten years since I’ve made a snow angel. Far too long. When I was a kid I used to try to talk my little sisters into making face-down snow angels but they were too smart for me, and I usually ended up being pelted with snowballs.

    Sorry, no spankings for me, but our toy bag does contain a few wooden spoons and spatulas I use on my wife’s pretty bottom. There is a thick wooden spatula with a wide head that Season finds particularly ouchy. I can lend it to Mrs. Claus for use on the naughty elves here. I heard dear Ana is due a session over the lap of Mrs. Claus and this would be the perfect implement.

      Michael, you are such a card! I am so glad you are joining in our fun today! I am almost choking about your interpretation of St Knickerless Day! Honey, I would freeze to death over here if I took it literally and Dan does nothing but lift his eyebrow when I turn up the heating or moan I am cold. He simply tells me to put on another sweater, or he will demonstrate how a certain part of my anatomy could be warmed up!

      Our opponents in the snowball fight all come from the south pole. They are extra pesky elves who are employed during the holiday season to help Santa out when delivering toys on the other side of the Equator! We’ve won the last five snowball fights, and this year should prove to be no different. Just look at our line up! You are definitely going to be in the front line!

      Far too long since making a snow angel. Shame on you! Time to relive your youth!

      I am sure Mrs Claus has several wooden spoons you won’t have tried out before, but you’ll have to move fast, because she isn’t fussy who she tries them out on!

    Well, I can’t throw and I can’t catch so probably not. Also, we haven’t had enough snow to make snow balls in several years.

    Holy cow! This is just too funny! St. Knickerless day? Someone’s been dipping in the eggnog all right, and it was definitely spiked! lol

    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why? I was totally going to say Santa spluge, but I think I’ll plead the fifth instead.

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much eggnog? They are called the Aurora Borealis and they are literally every color of the spectrum. Sadly, it’s almost impossible to take pictures of the actual colors. Which is why you see a lot of green, but in Alaska I’ve lain out in the snow and watched veritable rainbow of colors shot back and forth across the sky. When you drink too much eggnog, it doesn’t change the color, but it does drastically reduce the likelihood that you’ll avoid passing out in the snow and/or freezing to death.

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight? You bet! In fact, I can be relied on to not just get you back, but get even!

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow? I was just married, so about 18 years ago.

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why? I vote spatulas. I like the surface coverage and I hate the cup of wooden spoons. Ouch! Well, spatulas are ouchy too, but at least they hurt in a nice, flat way.

    I am disappointed. I was sure that St. Knickerless Day meant we all got to go without Knickers today. (Come to think of it, if I don’t get the laundry done soon it will be St. Knickerless day by necessity!)

    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?

    An electro-magnetic field. Why? Um… because I think that’s what I heard once.
    (But it’s really made out of blocks of ice and decorated with candy canes.)

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?

    Aurora Borealis. I’ve never seen them in real life but in pictures they are mostly green. I don’t put alcohol in my eggnog so they’d probably still be the same color.

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?

    I have lousy aim.

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?

    Alrighty then…here are my answers to your questions:

    1 The North Pole is made out of magical ice and snow that are soft if you fall, warm to the touch but never melt. Why? Because the North Pole is a magical place silly.

    2 Another name for the Northern Lights is Aurora Borealis and they pulsate with the colors of the rainbow ranging from pale to intense…the more eggnog you drink, the more intense the colors and the faster they pulsate. Of course, come hangover time, they are neon bright while pulsating and spinning violently!

    3 Oh yes, you definitely want me on your team…not because of my throwing arm (which sucks) but because I’m sneaky…I will sneak up on the other team and shove snow down their backs! LOL

    5 Hmpf…well we all know that contrary to what SOME people might say, I NEVER do ANYTHING that would earn me a spanking so there would be no reason for me to choose any weapon of m’ass destruction but since I ALWAYS follow the rules…I choose…a feather!

    Like Michael, I thought St. Knickerless Day meant going without knickers or panties on. A sexy thought, but not at all good for me in reality, for reasons I will NOT divulge here.

    Loved the article, the replies and the replies to the replies. Definitely an uplifting day for smiles all around.

    As to the questions. I was just going to answer the Northern Lights one, but decided to go “whole hog.”

    1. What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why? – The pole itself is peppermint candy cane that the reindeer love to lick. The area looks like sparkling, crystal snow, but it’s not cold except when capturing a flake on the tongue during a “storm.” Then it feels like tiny ice crystals melting in your mouth, and tastes like sugar.

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog? Their other well-known name is Aurora Borealis and they display all the colors in the spectrum. I don’t think egg nog changes the color of things, but it can add a ghostly shimmer and change the shape of every day items if you stare at them long enough.

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight? Nope. I execute a girly toss, then quickly duck and hide to avoid getting hit back. A total wuss.

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow? It’s been a few years. You need a really good winter jacket and nice warm gloves to make them properly, and I’m an inside creature, so I lack the proper equipment to make a good snow angel.

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why? Hmm. A small plastic teaspoon, maybe? Something that would be totally ineffectual for its purpose. Hey, if I can do anything to avoid a painful spanking, I will. Though I’ve been known to take a wooden spoon to hubby’s unsuspecting backside on occasion, when I’m drying the dishes. Not enough to hurt or spur him into retaliating, but enough to get a reaction. Usually, a growled warning to “Watch it.”

    Thanks for giving us all a smile today, Ami. I really enjoyed it.

    I sure am glad to note that you gave that NAUGHTY ELF ANA a sound answer about the original elf’s identity. You have it absolutely right!!! She is indeed the one on the left with the Christmas colored, polka dotted knickers!!! How do I know? Well, Minelle told me when she handed me her beautiful art. And I sealed that with the “A” in Ana! 🙂 Further proof- the art with all of the naughty elves in the corner, was put together by yours truly. I painted designer knickers on all those naughty elves when I put them in their corners- even gave myself some (yeah I have my naughty moments, it is true. Not as many as my sister elves you know. And I have never been in the corner. :)) The bottom line is that I did not have to paint anything on Ana’s panties- they were already there. She was the ONE. Minelle was nice to give Ana such lovely holiday panties, wasn’t she? I’m sure that the lucky winner of your matching knickers will feel a special bond with Elf Ana, won’t they????

    Anyway, I hope that you noticed that I gave you a beautiful violet pair of knickers, complete with white stripes. Does that match any of YOUR 100 pairs of panties in your drawer???? Gosh if I had 100 panties I would get a swat for every last one of them. I am pretty sure of that!!! LOL. He made me pay for 300 of something once. Not all at once but the last 100 ones were a package spanking deal! YOUCH!!! 🙂 Seriously, your collection sounds lovely. I try my best to wear pretty knickers each and every day- unless I am going knickerless… Which can be kinda HOT at times. Ask Rob… LOL!!!

    1. I always picture the North Pole as a place like in the movie The Polar Express, or a mix of a bunch of kids movies. Mostly it is a place where a bunch of people are happily working on bringing joy to people everywhere. Just a happy place… colorful and with lots of candy!!! And some reindeer too!

    2. Aurora Borealis is the other name for Northern Lights. All those charged up colorful particles crashing into each other as they make their way into the earth’s atmosphere. Maybe it is the particles way of spanking each other???? I promise that I haven’t been at the egg nog or anything else. Though Cat had a great recipe to try… 🙂 Oh and there is a lot of pink and green colors up there in that sky. Though there are many to see as well. Would love to see sometime… With too much eggnog I don’t think that I would see many more colors- just see them spinning round and round!!! lol.

    3. Yes I can be a reliable snowball fight teammate!!! Fun times!!
    4. I have made many an angel in the snow. Probably within the last ten years with the kids. Time for another go!!! 🙂

    5. I hope that by the time Mrs. Claus takes care of all of you naughty people, all of her spoons will be broken. But if I had to choose, I would NOT pick the one that Rob tends to use on my B-U-T-T!!!! You know, the one that is in the Katie T Special. The one that some (un)lucky person will win this advent. It is thick and kinda rounded… I’d pick a little flimsy one- or a toy. 😀 I prefer leather, or a Rob’s hand ya know!!!! Wood is Bad! Susie told me that a long time ago. Thanks Ami, and Ana too!!!!

      Mrs Claus has such a large collection of wooden spoons that I am certain she will be happy to let you “trial” them. LOL!

    1. I think the North Pole is made out of ice formed into dwellings (similar to igloos). When the lights from all the candles melt the snow and, when the cold breeze blows, all sorts of icicles are formed making beautiful homes.
    3. I definitely cannot be relied on during a snow fight. I am always hiding and laughing my behind off as other get picked off, 🙂
    4. I have never made a snow angel. I have made a sand angel. My homeland is a balmy 78F, on average year round. Currently, it is 46F; so, now I am wondering – what am I doing here, have I lost my mind? I need to book a flight home, :-0 . For those looking to escape the cold, the Caribbean is a great place to visit.
    5. I would like a spoon made out of ice – after mixing the cake, by the time a new use appears, it would have melted, 🙂

    I made a snow angel last year, but its not a good past time to undertake if you have done anything to annoy your HoH; I live to tell you that I would rather not repeat the spanking on a cold bottom thing.
    I love the idea of snowball fights but when we get down to them I tend to side with the nearest person and hide behind them.
    Now this mrs Claus can’t spend all her time baking and using wooden spoons. Surely she must have cobwebs in her house too and need to do dusting. I think I would choose to leave the wooden spoons alone altogether and opt for her to use her feather duster to punish if she really must.

    Hi Ami! I just went to your blog to check out the knickers. Very pretty. Of course, here in the states they are called panties. 🙂 I’ll have to look at your blog more closely! OK, onto your questions……..

    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?
    Hmmmmmm………I’m going to go with a candy cane. It is stripey and, if you licked it, it would taste good. lol

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?
    The other name for the Northern Lights is Aurora Borealis. I have no idea what color they are as I have never seen them. When my husband and I retire, this is one place I want to see. I never drink too much eggnog! I absolutely love the stuff.

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
    Of course I can! I live in the North and experience winter every year! My kids even have the thing that makes snowballs. Oh, and we have the forms so we can make a great fort to hide behind!

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
    Last year, with neighborhood kids. My kids think they are a little too old for that! Just have to watch out for the brown and yellow snow. 😉

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why? Hmmm…..never been spanked, so I don’t know if I would like a spoon. I guess I would let Mrs. Claus choose and hope she would take it easy on the new kids!

      You and I agree on the north pole one hundred per cent! Candy cane! Yummy!

      Dan and I also have a “real” visit to see the northern lights on our bucket list, but the trips are very expensive and often coincide with winter when the North Sea is a roiling force to be reckoned with, and as I get very seasick it would mean flying up into Scandanavia I think. Apparently this winter is going to be the best show for many, many years!

      Glad you are good at snowball fights, and I have to tell you that when we get any snow I am the first to dash out and make some snow angels! Brown and yellow snow? Yuck! Avoid the area around all trees! As for snow angels – get out there and make some yourself! You’re never too old! LOL! Even if like me you need a hand to get up again!

      Mrs Claus is always extra caring about new kids on the block. She ensures they get the opportunity to try out each and every spoon in her arsenal!

        Ami, I finally found the book I want to tell you about. Have you read “The New Panty Collection” by Joannie Kay? This book is about a wife who must go to the local lingerie shop to buy new panties every time she is to be spanked. She has strict instructions from her husband on type, color, etc. Once, she had to tell the clerk there that she was buying the panties to be punished in. I think that you would love this story. I bought it on Barnes and Noble quite a while ago, but it might still be there.

    Okay as stated earlier I don’t live where it snows and I didn’t see snow for the first and only time when I was 44. But I did it in a big way. We traveled with my in-laws that would be a group of 23 people to Norway and took a ship up the coast of Norway. This was January. There was a storm for most of the trip. They shoveled snow off the deck at least once a day. But we did cross the Arctic Circle.

    1. I did not see the north pole but based on what I could see I guessing a giant icicle.
    2. The Northern Lights are the Auroora Borealis. The storm broke our last night and we actually got to see them. The once we saw were green and almost eerie in the way they moved. Didn’t have any egg nog on the trip but one night they gave us a shot of Ocavid(sp?) Didn’t see any lights but I was light headed does that count.
    3. Never participated in a snowball fight but figuring how I am in most sports related activities. No.
    4. I never made snow angels but on that Norway trip my youngest was 5. She made a snow angel in every port. We took pictures of each one. The cutest thing was her is how she said it when she made the first one. “Look mommy a sand angel in the snow.” Of course while she had made sand angels I never did that either.
    5. Not sure about the whole wooden spoon thing.

      Hi Katybeth! Thank you for joining in the fun! I am most impressed about your sea trip to the Arctic Circle! In an earlier comment I think I mentioned how seasick I get, and the North Sea is renowned for its choppiness in the winter, so I stay off it! I would have to fly up there! I also loved how your youngest made snow angels in every port! Brilliant! I would have been right down there with her! What a lovely memory to look back on!

      The only time I saw the northern lights they were mostly green. They looked just like green and gold fire in the sky. Very eerie.

        Ami if you get sea sick you would really not have wanted to be on this trip. The first day was the worst because we woke up to and had empty stomachs. I spent all morning in the bathroom until we docked. Wasn’t sure I wanted to get back on. Got the tip that a full stomach actually helped and they were right. Believe me I made sure to keep eating after that.

        Funniest was my daughter would get on the rail by the observation window and ride like she was on one of those horse in front of the store. She never got even one bit sick. I think it was because she was so much closer to the ground and had a lower center of gravity.

        Worst was when the worker said this was the roughest cruise they had ever experienced. Gee so glad I could be here.

    Ideally, she’d start with the cake-making spoon, move onto the pudding mixing spoon, the jam spoon and finish with rubber spatula and then I’d BETTER get a massive cuddle because you can bet I will blubber. I’d prefer not to stand in the corner afterward, but I suppose that’s not my decision. Sigh.

    Aurora Borealis, right? I’ve never been that far north, which is why I’m not sure what the North Pole is made of either. I’ve seen pictures of it, and most are green, but I think I’ve seen some with red and yellow also, and I believe it looks different depending on the atmosphere you are looking through. I wouldn’t spoil eggnog with alcohol, it’s too good without it, so the lights would look the same.

    Uh…, I live in Southern CA, we don’t have snow.

    See number 3. No snow here. We could probably make sand angels at the beach, but I don’t go there either. Don’t like to get sunburned, and I’m too fair skinned.

    Hello Ami,

    My, what an interesting conversation. I did not know that Tom Baker aka Doctor Who made knickers? Time Lord tech, things are bigger on the inside. haha

    And what if a guy did win and wanted knickers? Some guys like to where them even on ST. Kickerless Day. Haha

    Ok as for the questions.

    1. I would say the North Pole is a large Peppermint Pole. And the magnetic north pole is a steel rod, some where in Canada. Those that are saying a cotton candy, must never have seen cotton candy left out for a while.
    2. The Aurora Borealis is neon colored, mostly green. I don’t think I have seen it other then pictures or videos. I have not had a chance to seen it dipping eggnog. Speaking of eggnog, I am of the leave the booze out group. This allows it to be other ways. But do not ever put in on your sugary breakfast cereal, it is TOO sweet.
    3. I am not the best at throwing, but I have plenty of experience tossing pies and baseballs at the dunk tank. I can also be used as a shield. Oh course I have never been in an ice cream snowball fight. Sounds fun and yummy.
    4. I made a snow angel about 2 years ago. I had got some new bra/nicker set from a mistress and she had me make a snow angel in that. Yes it was cold, but I had on boots and gloves, nothing else.
    5. Being a pie clown I would say the wooden spoon used for pudding pies, custard, or cake mix. I am sure Mrs Claus would use it with the mix fresh on it. I new take on a pie spanking.

    I have say that reading this was a great fun Thank you Ami and Anna

    1. As boring as this sounds…lots of nice cool snow I can sit in after Mrs. Claus finds me! (Please hide me, someone!)

    2. I am a decent and restrained girl who would never drink too much eggnog. Why are you asking about the northern lights, Ami? Are you revved on too much eggnog of your own? You know you’re not supposed to drink eggnog while replying to comments, right?

    3. Depends. A boy once threw pieces of ice at me during a snowball fight. I went to his house and told his mother. So I stopped him, but not exactly the orthodox way.

    4. Gosh, I’m not sure. I no longer have snow pants, etc. that make this project less messy! Plus, it’s impossible to stand up without ruining your work.

    5. I would smile prettily, kiss her cheek, compliment her new hairdo, ask her if I could help chop onions for her shepherd’s pie, and tell her to sit down and put up her feet because I’d take care of everything for the rest of the day. After that, I’m sure she would smile and slip me one of her famous sugar sprinkle cookies. We’d all be happy, and no one would get hurt.

Aurora Borealis, I’ve never seen it myself outside of movies and TV. It looks like it is lots of colors, I think I remember purple and green mostly. When the eggnog comes out they turn to a lovely shade of pink with polka dots.

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight? Not even a little. I’m clumsy and I throw like a girl.

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow? I made one once when I visited up north. I live in the south. It was 80 degrees today, so we don’t have much opportunity.

    2. They’re all the colours of the rainbow and some more besides. When one looks at them tipsy, they are even more swirly, upside-down and backwards.

    3. Hm, not in the sense of being a reliable team member… I’ll switch sides in a second if an opportunity for amusement presents itself 😀

    4. Three winters ago 🙂 my friends and I were rather intoxicated. It was great fun!

    5. Mm… what a lovely thing to ponder! I can just imagine standing in Mrs Claus’s warm kitchen, frowning sadly over the range of spoons laid out on her table, knowing that whichever one I selected would then be used to turn my bottom a fierce, howl-inducing red.

    So I’d choose the biggest one!

      Hello Penelope and thank you for joining us for our fun day!

      Nah. I think that is the South Pole you are talking about. Ours is much prettier and a whole lot more interesting and delicious!

      When you get to drink Mrs Claus’ eggnog you will understand how little you can actually see of anything!

      Please don’t let her think you would change sides in a second. We have been fighting that rabble from the South Pole for years now, and we ALWAYS manage to win!!! Changing sides would earn you a barnwarmer, and although I’ve never had one I can just imagine how painful such a thing would be. Howls would be the least of it! Shrieks, yells and hollering for the moon might be more like it!

      Hugs

    I loved this post so cute! Defintley not what I was expecting for St. Knickerless day. I have enjoyed sneaking off and checkin in on the comments throughout my day today almost forgot to join the fun.

    1. I hunk he North Pole is made of powdered sugar and fluffy sugary creations with gumdrops and licorice.

    2. A beautiful periwinkle color.

    3. I can for sure be contd on in a snowball fight but I play dirty and am sneaky.

    4. I’m like a but kid- last year after we did naked snow angels after the hot tub my bits nearly froze!

    5. Ekk back to th damn spoon. Hmm I’ve never been spanked with wood just an occasional wack with a hairbrush when I make the mistake of trying to jockingly use it on my giant and damn it hurts!! Can I choose a swedish butter knife?

    I love that you are crazy for panties or knickers so am I. I took a creep shot of the post that said you had a 100 plan to show it to my h that I’m not the only one who has an obsession with beautiful sexy funny colorful panties. I love bits if lace and static cotton or silk. I’m obsessed with lingerie and my panties much match my outfit. I also seem to always stash extra panties in my purse car his jacket pockets just Incase not sure Incase if what, pretty much the entire world where I live has seen me in my panties I’m not to shy about answering the door or goi to get the mail in them. My family was like always nudes which is very different from my giant he is never thrilled when he drives up and sees me out in a cute pair but they are to cute to hide sometimes.

      Hi Sassy, and I am glad you came to play with us!

      Licorice? That sounds lovely. I don’t know whether there is any on our north pole or not as I never seem to get beyond the marshmallow chunks! I like the sound of periwinkle blue northern lights as well.

      A hot tub? Oh, please invite all the elves. We could do with a soothing session – just look at our poor sit-upons! But rolling around in the snow afterwards? Ugh. No thank you. I only do that when I have warm leggings on!

      Yes, I would agree with you that a hairbrush can hurt. My Starman broke mine in half during one particularly memorable session! Luckily it was never replaced. But a spoon must surely be better than a knife?! Anyway, Mrs Claus is the one who gets to make the decisions around here. And whichever she chooses, really, really hurts!

      I am laughing like a drain at you and your shennanigans wearing only knickers! I would give everyone around here heart attacks, and Dan would NOT be impressed! He is the only one who gets to see me in my knickers! But yes, I too have a “thing” about underwear. I just love feminine stuff. I do like wandering around in them in the house though, when I know there is no one else around and not likely to be. And I always carry a clean pair in my handbag. You never know. And a girl has to cover all eventualities!

    1 What do you think the North Pole is made out of, and why?

    The North Pole, in my opinion is all snow. Reindeers live in the snowy mountains and Santa

    2 What is the other name for the Northern Lights, and what colour are they? What colour are they when you have been drinking too much egg nog?

    Other names are the Golden Compass, Dance of the Spirits, and Heavenly Dance. They are multi colored almost like the colors of fireworks. With too much egg nog, I would think that the lights were spirits, ghost like. My son thinks that they also look like fire

    3 Can you be relied on in a snowball fight?
    Oh definitely Grew in snow country and was a softball pitcher. Plus I know how to build great snow forts to protect us from the other teams.

    4 When was the last time you made angels in the snow?
    Last winter. How can one resist especially when your kids are going “come one mom”

    5 Mrs Claus has lots of wooden spoons – for cake-making, pudding mixing, a jam spoon etc. If you had to pick a spoon to be spanked with, which would you choose, and why?
    A regular stirring spoon, oval shaped bottom and a bowl like inside. Thicker the better. It is very quiet and it isn’t slappy like lighter spoons can be.

      Oh Blondie I am soooo glad you came to play with us. I love the idea of building a snow fort! Excellent! You will definitely be in the front row! Just don’t drink too much eggnog first, okay?

      I heard of Dance of the Spirits but not the others I don’t think. They do look like fire, but I only saw green and gold.

      I make snow angels with my eldest grandson. If you get someone to give you a hand up off the ground after making them, you can get up without ruining them. It is great fun!

      Re your answer to question 5 – just you tell my Dan that the really big spoons aren’t meant to be slappy!!! I swear that man makes everything he uses SLAPPY! Good grief!

      Mrs Claus is pretty good – she tends to splat more than whack. But she certainly makes sure she covers every inch. You can fairly fry eggs on your poor tender backside by the time she has addressed your behaviour! Note our little line-up above.

    Ami, thank you for so many giggles and chortles! It’s a good think that I’m such a good girl, ’cause I might have gotten into terrible trouble with St. Knickerless and all.

    And Mrs. Claus knows what an angel I am, too!

    As for the questions:

    1. The North Pole is made of cotton candy, marshmallow fluff, rock candy, and lots and lots of peppermint. The pole itself is the biggest, most, um, suggestive, stick of peppermint anyone ever licked.

    2. The other name for the Northern Lights is the Aurora Borealis! I’ll go with the magnetic particles spanking each other–I like that image. They come in all colors of the rainbow and they’re very hard to photograph. I hope to see them in person someday. As for what they look like after too much eggnog, well, how would a good girl like me know about such things? (Sip)

    3. My son used to say that I was best at being a meat shield in a snowball fight–you know, the poor kid in front that everybody pelts and hides behind. Sigh.

    4. I made a snow angel two years ago. Don’t know if it’s going to happen this year because hubby isn’t excited about helping me up. On the other hand, my granddaughter is two and somebody’s got to teach her!

    5. I would never choose a wooden spoon! I’d just use them for stirring cake batter and cookie dough and chocolate sauce and Mrs. Claus wouldn’t have any reason to even think about using them on me. I’m a good girl!

    Thanks for all the giggles!

      Hi Sherilyn! Thank you for joining us in our fun day! It’s Mrs Claus you need to worry about! Angel? Huh! I think there is a spoon with your name on it!

      I agree totally with your description of the North Pole. I don’t think there could possibly be anything better to lick! LOL! Well…

      A meat shield! Never! You can be in mid field and lob all the snowballs back that get through the front line. How about that? And any bits you don’t manage to catch and go splat, you can always have a nibble at.

      I just love playing snow angels with my grandson. I do need Dan’s help to get up though, or the imprint in the snow resembles a grizzly bear more than an angel!

      I agree. I am a good girl too. Unfortunately Mrs Claus seems to think that good girls especially are the ones who need a session with one of her horrid wooden spoons! Poor little elves!
