Holiday cheer

Got home last night to not one, but two packages for me! I was expecting presents I'd ordered for other folks, but gettin' loot of my very own was a happy surprise.

First, I got a tanktop that says "Kree" from my beloved fandom girlfriend, tafkar. I just love it! And apparently E does, too.

The package also contained one of those white, oval stickers, only this one says SG-1! I'd be a tremendous geek to put it on my car, wouldn't I? E points out that quiet a few actual Air Force personnel work in his building, and he'd likely get laughed at for it. But I'm gonna persuade him anyway.

The second package was from peregrin8 and contained a vegetarian cookbook. Yay! I can never have enough of those. She also included her holiday letter, which was newsy and quite inspiring, as she is doing so many cool things with her life.

Then, cyntergomes brought us devilishly good cookies (some of which my "helpful" husband slipped into my bag this morning) and a Playmobile advent calendar that has all these strange little animals in it. Including guinea pigs. I have never seen guinea pigs included in a nativity scene, but they are cute, so there you have it. I am considering to what nefarious purposes I can put my little, plastic menagerie.

We are so lucky. Thanks so much, mes chers!

Does she have one that reads "Skrull"? (comics fandom) Or is there another Kree out there is SF?

"Kree" is the catch-all command given by Goa'uld to their Jaffa. It means variously "come here," "pay attention," and "kill that guy a lot."

Didn't realize it had another relevance anywhere other than Stargate.

The Kree are a (mostly) blue-skinned alien empire in Marvel comics. Captian Marvel (not Shazam, but the other one) was a member of the minority white-skinned Kree.

They had a long-lived conflict with the Skrull, who were little green guys with pointy ears who can change shape.

My cat's breath smells like cat food.

Captian Marvel (not Shazam, but the other one)

The Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) who wore the nega-bands, hung out with Rick Jones, and died of cancer, rather than the current Captain Marvel, who's a black female cop with light powers.

I think.

current Captain Marvel, who's a black female cop with light powers.

Actually, she's called Pulsar now, but changed her name from Captain Marvel to Photon a while ago.

The most RECENT Captain Marvel would be Genis-Vell, Mar-Vell's genetically-engineered son (and therefore also a Kree), but he lost his memory and started calling HIMSELF Photon. Hijinks ensued.

I have bathy stuffs for you too...
Dec. 20th, 2005 04:37 pm (UTC)
Ooh, Hurray! I had completely forgotten about that. Might not be able to get it till after we come back, as we are leaving at 4 AM on Thursday, though...

Whatever works for you. You guys driving again?
Dec. 20th, 2005 05:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we are driving. And tonight we have a family obligation, so I don't think we'll get a chance. When will you guys be out of town?
Dec. 20th, 2005 05:30 pm (UTC)
Just Christmas day through the 27th.

Let us know when you get back...I can always just bring them to book club too, but I hope we see you before then.

The "quick 'n' easy" recipes are going to be so useful. Thanks very much!
Dec. 20th, 2005 05:28 pm (UTC)
YAY!!! You got it! I'm so glad you like it! Now post a photo, because I bet it looks HOT on you!
Dec. 20th, 2005 05:54 pm (UTC)
Hee. Perhaps I will have E do a photo shoot which I will post privately for you!

*smooch* Thanks so much! I just love it. (And the sticker is totally going on the Scion!)

What, we don't get to see?
