HELP THE ELF: I Found Santa’s Missing Nice List!

Hi everyone! As you may remember, a few weeks ago PETE the Elf had a touch too much Eggnog at the Holiday Christmas Party and as he stumbled home, he lost Santa's NICE LIST.

The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.

Ever since I read about it, I've been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!

Yes that's right...I found part of Santa's missing NICE LIST. There it was, fluttering in the wind, half caught under the corner of my welcome mat. And shock of all shocks, I recognized the name, and I bet you will too.

Here it is below:

NAME: Lynne Abernathy

LOCATION: USA

NICE LEVEL: 95%

NAUGHTY LEVEL: 5%

OBSERVATIONS: She's an excellent dragon tamer and guardian. She makes the most wonderful and original virgin snacks. She had bore 12 years of writing partnership with the Father Dragon (not easy at all). She might have abandoned Dragon Cave lately (for work.)

RECOMMENDATION:     a) Coal                   b) Special video card (look below)

NAME: Jeff Hargett

LOCATION: Strands of Pattern

NICE LEVEL: 92%

NAUGHTY LEVEL: 8%

OBSERVATIONS: He is a great supportive friend. He is an excellent critique partner. He offers good advice and honest insight. He is a good "Toss the Dwarf" player, for a human. He could have more confidence in himself, though.

RECOMMENDATION:     a) Coal                   b) Special video card (look below)

There are two other people I just have to mention even if they're not writers but they also mean a lot to this writer. Mama Dragon, who hates writers but supports me and wishes for this dragon writer to be published one day. And Father Dragon "The Great", who was 98% responsible for my love for stories and books.

RECOMMENDATION:     a) Coal                   b) Special video card

Because poor Pete is dashing all over the place trying to hunt down the rest of Santa's missing Nice List, I decided to take care of these ones myself. Merry Christmas, buddies! Your names are carved in golden letters on the Wall of Honor at the Dragon Cave. Enjoy the gift I made specially for you and have a wonderful Christmas!

  4. Oh for goodness sake, let me try this again. OH this is so nice! That Jeff is a nice, nice man and I have no doubt the "better half" of Dragon is a saint. Great picks!

  5. Wow--what a video card! It must have taken a long time to build and I know the recipients will love it! I loved it too--in fact, it gave me not one, but two story ideas! How about that--talk about the gift that keeps on giving. :)

    Thank you so much for joining in on the fun. Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas!

    1. Thank *you*, Angela. It was nice to do it and it was quite an achievement to actually have mother dragon sit and watch and translate it for her. Wonderful idea you had with this. Merry Christmas! :)

  7. A dragon farmer sounds like a cool occupation. Do you need a university degree to do it? :)
