A Gintama chapter a day keeps the ending away...Lesson 99

This is my New Years resolution for 2017: to re-read a chapter of Gintama every day starting from the beginning and sum it up thusly…

Title and Image:

Favorite Scenes from Lesson 99:

This Santa and his reindeer slays me. (har-har-har)

The naughty-minded stand owner was a hoot.

That’s what they get for listening to Gintoki’s fashion advice.

I loved the pay-off we get from the little girl’s Christmas wish.

Kagura’s wish was so adorable and pure and kinda sad at the same time. Poor deprived girl.

Santa being a total dick made me guffaw.

He totally deserved that for farting on her face. Disgusting.

I really enjoyed our first twisted Gintama Christmas tale, especially how it ended. Kagura’s contented face gives me life.

Ships Tally:

I could count Santa/Reindeer since they were bickering like an old married couple, but nahhh. Wouldn’t want to piss off the old geezer and then not receive my Christmas present this year.

18 U.S. Mayors To Obama: We'll Take Even More Refugees
"We will welcome the Syrian families to make homes and new lives in our cities."

New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and 15 other cities are ready and willing to take in even more refugees than the Obama administration has proposed, mayors wrote in a letter to the president on Thursday.

“We will welcome the Syrian families to make homes and new lives in our cities,” wrote the mayors, all of whom are part of the Cities United for Immigration Action coalition. “Indeed, we are writing to say that we stand ready to work with your Administration to do much more and to urge you to increase still further the number of Syrian refugees the United States will accept for resettlement.”

A final Carmilla Secret Santa 2015 update

Entries are now closed (again) and I won’t be reopening them again. Sorry to anyone who missed out but it really does take a lot of organizing and I’m only human.

If you have entered and have not received a name to Santa for please send me a message or an ask.

If you do not hear from your Santa by Monday 7th let me know and I’ll sort a new one. It happens, people get busy or forget or are otherwise affected by circumstances out-with their control.

If you’re part of this years participants please remember to have your ask box open and anon enabled. I’ve already had to remind a lot of people, make my life easier.

And finally, if you are willing to take on an extra person to Santa for please shoot me an ask saying so. I always end up needing back-up Santa’s and it’s immensely helpful if I have a little list of people.

Movie-A-Day Day 338: A Christmas Horror Story (2015) - Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.

Genuinely shocked by how good this is. It’s got some great scares and a collection of fun christmas based scary tales. It’s not perfect, and does have some cringe-worthy acting moments but as a whole it’s damn fun stuff. The editing and direction is great and I like how the stories are all edited together rather than presented as a whole one at a time. Silliness, scares, chuckles, and some great make-up make this a new holiday tradition. Definitely worth checking out for your holiday horror needs!
