If you'd asked me where I was planning to spend Christmas a couple of months ago, I would not have said "on the beach"! It's almost deserted most of the time and doesn't tend to start getting chilly until after sunset, so we just sat out on the balcony for half the day and went down to the sea for the other half. THE BEST. We've done a lot of coast-walking - the tide doesn't come in far, so it's easy enough to just wander along the shore in both directions. Wading through all those sand dunes may have left me with thigh muscles of iron. Maybe. I hope everyone else had/is having a great holiday, and that all those who celebrate Christmas in any form had merry ones!

(There was a small flareup of cross-ocean family drama, but I think it's as sorted as it'll ever be. I have never been so grateful for international call charges.)

Also, I got two fantastic Yuletide fics: Be All My Sins Remember'd (Destiny) and A Rare Reverse Metaphor (Marathon). If you're even a little bit familiar with the fandoms in question, I urge you to go and read! I still feel kind of bad for flubbing YT so hard myself, even with unforeseeable extenuating circumstances in play... at least I defaulted well before the deadline? I didn't have time to treat before the collection opened, so will just have to NYR it.

I'm away from the flat a lot and have sporadic internet access, so haven't had much time to dig into the Yuletide collection outside my own gifts. It will happen! Possibly tonight; we'll see.

Mmmmmmm, the beach sounds so lovely right now... It is unseasonably warm here at the moment and I HATE IT. It was like 75 degrees F today! I had to run the air conditioning in my car! Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. (Sand-walking is excellent for the thighs, I can attest to this.)

I have to admit I was a little nervous when I saw Eris/Toland show up in the tags, but wow, that was a GREAT fic (the Eris/Toland parts included!). So many feelings. ;o; YOU DESERVED A NICE YULETIDE, ANYWAY.

Have lots of non-internet fun! Yuletide fics will be around forever, holidays will not. XD ... although I might just be saying that because I've been so busy helping with party stuff that I've barely read anything besides my gifts + a few of the shorter things in tabs. @.@

Ahhhhhh, that sounds so nice! It's finally cooling down here, but we've also gotten ridiculous amounts of rain, so - not much of an improvement. (Why couldn't at least some of it be snow. ;o; )

I'M GLAD THERE WAS SUCH GOOD DESTINY FIC IN YULETIDE THIS YEAR, IT WAS GREAT. And what can I say - it was their time to shine! I COULD NOT PUT OFF THEIR AWESOME ANY LONGER. Although I wish I'd had time to make it an even longer fic... /o\ I'M JUST SUPER HAPPY YOU LIKED IT.

All the parties were great successes and I might even have time to make a post about them soon! If I can tear myself away from Iron Banner. XD (I just want that Titan helmet - and maybe the pretty pretty shotgun...) And at some point I will get around to my million tabs... /o\
