But first a note about scheduling for the next two weeks: unlike some of you lucky jerks, I have to work Monday-Wednesday both next week and the week after, so I’ll still be posting submissions if they come in (and putting up general chat posts, if not) on those days, but there won’t be any new posts on the 25th, 26th, and January 1st and 2nd. I’ll remind everyone about this again; just thought I’d give y’all a heads-up.
Now you must dance, and tell me about your weekend plans:
I have always known that someday in my future dream home, I will have a library with a Beauty and the Beast rolling ladder and some sort of slide from the upper floors to the lower floors, but yesterday I found a new thing that I want! A secret room. I was googling to find a link to the book Secret Rooms (which summerestherson recommended, and now myself and a few other Monsters are currently reading) but instead stumbled into a google image search of actual secret rooms. Not creepy sex dungeon secret rooms, or doomsday panic rooms, but just legitimate ‘lets try to use up this extra space and make it cool’ secret rooms.
Wondering what’s in the stars for you this weekend? Wonder no more, because here I am with this weekend’s Flanosnowflakes. They’re like horoscopes, but they tell you what the best Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Yule present you’ll receive this year.
Aries: March 21-April 19
A themed Monopoly game featuring your favorite sporting team. You can add it to your collection of baller merch and leave it pristine and untouched, but you’ll just rip it open and then also play it with your friends and family after a couple of hot toddies and trounce them all!
Ho, ho, ho everybody! The Christmas hits keep coming, and for some reason, I keep watching them. The latest addition to our canon is bafflingly bad – it’s Dear Secret Santa.
Our long-lost (sort of) star is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s Tatyana Ali! And she’s teamed up with someone I confess I did not know was an actress, American Idol Jordin Sparks (tell me how she’s ‘sposed to breathe with no air?), and someone I most definitely DID, Ernie Hudson off of Ghostbusters!
Just keep a pack of Butterballs in your purse whenever you need it.

It’s a very busy day for me and I’m not going to be able to check for new submissions until later, so here’s a post to chat in the comments about whatever you want!

HM is a place to share ridiculous animal videos, but since it’s the Month Of Cheers™® I thought an uplifting story about a disabled canine would be more fitting. Dog-lover Tara Anderson recently participated in the foster program Peace and Paws, where she was matched up with the lovely Derby, a husky mix who was born with two deformed legs. The disfigurement took a toll his ability to be active, so Tara decided to do something about it. She just so happens to work for 3D Systems, a hardware company that makes 3D printers. Instead of printing pizza and unborn children, Tara used this technology to print Derby a set of prosthetic paws, enabling him to live his life like any other energetic pooch. Between this and these damn commercials, we should considering buying tissues in bulk.
