Holidays, holidaze

I hope everyone had wonderful Thanksgivingses and Christmases!

For the record, the very first Christmas card received at the library was addressed to me.  Oh, and the second one!  Then the holiday wishes for the humans started in a few days later.

As always, the holidays here were pretty busy.  We had the super-big library Christmas party on Monday, December 1 this year, and 300+ people showed up!  (I hear) it was crazy!  (I napped in the safety of my office and visions of cat-treats danced through my head.)

Here is Clarice the Reindeer with her human, "Candy Cane Chris".  (I have a suspicion that "Candy Cane Chris" is NOT the name on his driver's license.)  Clarice is the highlight of the Silly Safaris animal show, but I don't get it.  She isn't even litter-box trained!  See that tarp she's standing on?  She peed right on that mat, like, three times!

I have to give Clarice credit, though.  She's brave.  Anybody who can stand there and get petted by over 100 children is One Tough Cookie in my book.

My library staff partied on a Monday night in mid-December.  The wildest parties happen on Mondays!  They ate a lot of stuff that they seemed to think was tasty but didn't interest me too much.  Veggie pizza.  What is the point of that?

My library is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so that my staff can spend those days with their pets families pets and families.  Since I live in the library, I got some extra-special visits from AAB Karen.  She helped me open my stocking so I could see the catnip, treats, and stinky food that Santa left for me.  We spent two whole hours together on Christmas Day!

Now Christmas is over and we are looking forward to a New Year.

Purrs to a wonderful 2015, filled with catnip, treats, belly-rubs (if you're into that sort of thing), and stacks of Important Papers (for sitting on),
