Given that I have failed to send out cards two years running, should I even bother to try this year?
Yes, third times' the charm.
No, you'll just fail again and feel guilty all year.
A third option which I will explain in the comments.
I just wanted to press a button.
Depending on the results of this poll, I may put a post up this year. Or I may not. I am being indecisive.
Also, if someone will explain fandom_stocking to me (the procedure, not the prinicple), I might put a stocking up and/or do something for other people's stockings. I have been over to the comm several times and find it confusing.
So far Chanukah has been good. I have had a variety of packages most of which I bought for my self during the online sales right after Thanksgiving but also a belated birthday gift from paranoidangel42 who remembered that I had wanted the Eleventh Doctor sonic screwdriver screwdriver and sent that to me. :) Yay for a sonic screwdriver that actually unscrews things.
I have been busily rereading and rewatching a variety of fandoms for yuletide as I try to decide which prompts I want to do for my recipient AND my pinch hit (in both cases I'm familiar with all the fandoms they requested).

I've got about 40 inches done on a scarf for the work gift exchange (I always knit a scarf and hat and the hat is done.) I think it may be long enough by the party on the 10th, but I am not ruling out packing it with skein and needle and a note that says they'll get it in a week. I'm about 1/5 done with a baby blanket for my cousin's baby, due in December, but the scarf has the earlier deadline, so the other has been put away for the moment.
