New Year's EvErotica, Welcome 2020!

Dear Silly Ones,
   As we pack 2019 away, I wish you a very Happy New Year! May it be a more calm and safe one that includes heaping spoonfuls of friendship, chocolate, naughtiness, and giggles.
   We're sending forceful-thoughts for safety and reprieve to our friends in Australia, Elephant's Child and Anthony, and many more.
Much love. Welcome, 2020!

Big, Big Santa: Christmas Erotica

Dearest Sillies,
   I can't thank you enough for popping in and out of this silly-fest for yet another year. Circumstances change, and those changes are often traumatic, yet your kindness and ferocity persevere. Blogland has become a safe and necessary haven, more than ever before. 
   Together, we prove that laughter is a key to life, one nearly as important as chocolate.  
   Please be good to yourselves. Keep faith that darkness will lift and sassyness shall prevail.
   A very warm-loving Holiday and New Year's to you.
   May your Christmas be at least as naughty as nice.
   Happy Hanukah to the Jewish world.
   Love you all.

Elf on the Shelf, Precious or A Weird Scam?

Dear Sillies,
   I don't understand the Elf on the Shelf phenomenon, do you? It's gone on for 15 years, and the product reaps millions per year. Well over one million folks follow Elf on the Shelf's Facebook page. 
   It's all creepy and weird to me. And now they have "girl" version. You can dress her as a mermaid (if you splurge on the mermaid tail). She's flat chested just like the guy, though. I'm suspect. 
   But wait, there's more: various stuffed animals like a St. Bernard that you MUST buy for your Elf. And skirts she can wear to the big little Elf prom. But the boy doesn't have any special attire. He's just a red suited anorexic. No worries, he's a star; the Elf on the Shelf DVD proves it. Don't miss out on any of the Elf on the Shelf books. That would make you a negligent parent or grandparent.
   Oy vey!

Claus Couture Collection<sup>®</sup> Merry Merry Mermaid: Scout Elf in Outfit
   Upon research, I've learned that others aren't thrilled either. In fact, over half a dozen folks who paid for a "girl" Elf on the Shelf with her skirts had this complaint:

1.0 out of 5 starsWatch out!! There is NO elf doll included with this skirt!Definitely thought this came with the elf as well. Am I that dumb? I don't think so, I think I was mislead. And the price was outrageous, so it seemed obvious that it comes with a doll! It does not. Why did I pay almost $20 for a skirt for an elf!!??And the worst part, I had to find an amazon drop off location to return it. Well, that drop off location was impossible to find. I walked around UCSD campus for 45 minutes looking for it! Serious joke. So I gave up, and now own this stupid expensive skirt. So irritated!

Imagine the horrors being stuck with Elf clothes but not having a body to put them on! Especially NOT during the holidays. I suppose you could gift the Olsen twins that tiny Elf skirt. Surely, they could both fit into it (at the same time).

1.0 out of 5 starsDescription did NOT accurately represent the actual product Was NOT clear on the ad about it being ONLY the sweaters for the elf on shelf. So once I purchased it, I had sweaters for an elf on the shelf.....but no elf on the shelf. 

Oh sweetie, you own little tiny Elf on the Shelf sweaters? Maybe you can keep your pinkie toes warm. Then go barefoot to your next ugly Christmas sweater party. I bet you'd be a winner!

And here's a question from one Elf on the Shelf customer, with an answer from another.

Question: My elf keeps watching me use the bathroom. Help?
Answer: Try closing the door. I'm guessing that your family is also getting a bit tired of watching.
Good answer! That elf is a perve.

What do you think of this Elfin craze, my friends?  
This Jewish gal says: Elf it!

Martha Stewart Ruins the Holidays Again

Oh, my Dears,
Call her a place-holder for frenzied times, I call Martha Stewart an annoying narcissistic witch with a bold-faced "b." I'm sorry she finagled her way back onto Life by Chocolate. Excuse my holiday pudge too. I can't stop - too many good treats around here.
Be safe. Be warm. Be good to yourselves.
Love you.
