Confusing this, isn't it?  So as this is very last minute there's plenty of days still to claim - almost the whole month is empty so far! 


Stake your claim for a date on this thread.
and...
View contributions to the advent calendar here.




Except I'm trying to create both threads at the same time so I may have to actually make them linkable in replies to this post!

Yay - the forum software let me edit the posts so that both the contributions thread and comments thread link to each other!  Thank you SMF!

Thanks guys it’s a pleasure to add something to a great little feature like the Advent.

AlexF I read your blog and enjoyed your insight on these specials. However on a personal note I hold the 1980 Annual in high regards as this was my initial foray into the world of Thrag and from that deformed shrivelled acorn of content I was as hooked and now I have a great big oak tree of books, comics & tat as my wife calls it in the corner of my office/spare room.(Admittedly the content could only get better from that first read)
I look forward to your other entries 😁 👍🏻

Hope the Boy child had a great day Colin- it’s quite something when the Parent is making a home made card rather than the child. I hope he appreciated the effort and thought that went into it 👍🏻.

Let’s hope there’s more Squaxx getting the home made feeling soon as there’s not many dates filled in 🙁 I’ve always enjoyed everything posted on the Advent

Well the truth is as he opened it this morning a giant grin spread across his face...

... but...

...me and the girl child, seating opposite him, both bust out laughing as bless him for trying it was the most forced smile ever. In the end he admited that he thought the face was pretty weird lookin'!

Still its the thought that counts.

Have tried a personal message on 'how to do pretty links' but can't see the message to see if the code was visible, so I'll post here where I can actually see how it turns out!  I'll put a space after the opening square bracket and before 'url' so hopefully the code will be visible.

That’s a cracking little story Pete and even though I didn’t have the sensory items at hand I could imagine the sense they would give and it really works well.

Given how quickly Sheridan got this together we've had some LOVELY stuff as exemplified by Pete 'lovely' Well's fantastic story - dare you to use that in class - and Jim's wonderful sound effect. Hope you have a quiet month Jim so we get more of these. I love a good sound effect. Do less exercise or summit!
