Subject: To all.

Oh my love we've had our share of tears
Oh my friend we've had our hopes and fears
Oh my friends it's been a long hard year
But now it's Christmas
Yes it's Christmas
Thank God it's Christmas
The moon and stars seem awful cold and bright
Let's hope the snow will make this Christmas right
My friend the world will share this special night
Because it's Christmas
Yes it's Christmas
Thank God it's Christmas
For one night...

'Thank God it's Christmas' - Queen

Whatever our faith mybe, I think the words say it all.

Peace my friends,

You Know You've Been Too Cruel To Vachon in Fanfic When... you're at work
and recieve and email from MRVACHON. And think to yourself, 'Ah, he's
followed me from Toronto! And he's using a really crappy alias."

And the worst part is, I won't get to find out if "Mark R. Vachon" is out
to get me until January 3. D'oh!

I wonder if I can bring a stake and holy water into the cleanroom.

...and, if you don't mind me tossing this in, it's a national tragedy for
all Canadians, as yet another of our great institutions falls into foreign
hands.  What's next, the CN Tower??

(In case that sounded extremely "un-PC": Canada is known for having a
"branch plant" economy, i.e., only a small minority of large businesses in
Canada are owned or controlled by Canadians.  So, when one of Canada's
biggest Canadian-owned companies, not to mention one that's international in
scope, fades into the sunset, it's a Big Deal, even to Traitorous Canadians
who are Virtually American and are Canadians In Name Only, well, like,
errrr, well...me (*) ).

Well, at least now I the corporate fatcat-errr, whoops, person to be sending
my letters to... Thanks for the update!


P.S. : (*) For those who don't know me, that "traitorous Canadian" remark
was a slap at myself for the fact that I have lived in the States since June
of 1997, because apparently that Canadian money just wasn't good enough for
me.  :-)   And then on top of that, there's the fact that I TOTALLY sold out
my country by marrying an American - egads!!  Well, shucks, you know, I did
TRY, you know, but geez, I just wasn't good enough for any Canadian girls,
eh. (JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!  Okay, everyone start bricking Perky Cousin Will
now for being silly again.... :-) ).

P.P.S. : Happy Channukah! and Merry Christmas! (in advance :-) )

>How did the list get started at PSU to begin with??

Wow, now there's a fandom question that I can actually answer (I hope).  The
founder of this list is Jean "Jaye" Prior (right Lisa?), who is/was a Penn
State University grad student.  I don't recall how she ever managed to snag
university list server space for a non university-related subject, but hey,
I'm not complaining!!  :-)

Also thick in the midst of things was Laurie Salopek, who was co-Listmommy
for a few years.  Alas, I haven't seen for a while lately.  I met her at the
fan gathering in Toronto for Deborah Duchene's appearence in "The Winter's
Tale".  She's quite nice and I miss her being around here more often.
Laurie, I mean.  Well, Deborah's nice too, of course.  (Geez. Is anyone
thinking, "Geez, is he sounding like Forrest Gump today or what?!?!?")

Come to think of it, I haven't seen Jaye for a while either, but I have a
feeling that she'll be back soon to tell the whole tale.  THIS time, I'm
actually going to try to remember it in some detail in case anyone asks this
question again.

P.S. : No relation to Forrest Gump.  Ahh sw-eer.  :-)

Nigel's movie, Catch A Falling Star, will be shown on Monday on CTV, at 9
p.m., not on CBC at 8 p.m. as I originally posted.  Sorry for the confusion!

Hmmmnnn, I think that this is a little late. Obviously someone didn't see the
post that Jaye wrote a few days ago. She came out of hiding and put up the
whole story. :)

Subject: Re: Another question

> How long do you suppose it took Nick (apparently a strong Catholic)
> to quit crossing himself after he was brought over?
   I think Nick had stopped before he was brought over.
        My impression of Nickis that he was deeply, bitterly
disillusioned by the violence he saw and experienced in the
Crusade.   I'm inclined to think that he thought "no true god would
permit such carnage to be unleased in his name" and had
effectively given up the whole Roman Catholic idea of god by the
time he had returned home.

        I think it is part of why he was such a willing companion of
Janette and LaCroix for so long.  He was a man without a soul or
faith in anything but himself.

Subject: Helping KC

Just wanted you all to know... (hold on to your keyboards)......

I'm sending out a check to KC and her family in the amount of $300!!!!!

$100 anonymous donation via PayPal
$150 anonymous donation via PayPal
$25 donation from Nancy K via PayPal
$25 donation from me

There is NO DOUBT in my mind that we are the most wonderful, loving fans in the
world.    I also want to acknowledge the other two people who let me know that
they sent something to KC:

     Christy S:
     Since you've offered to keep up with the stuff going to KC, I just
     thought I'd let you know that I sent out a little gift to each of them
     along with some cash tucked in KC's gift.

     Bonnie R.
     I sent a check to KC last week to help out.  <waves>

And to everyone who sent something, be it a gift, money, a card, or just good
wishes to KC and her family, you are truly amazing.   No matter what your
religious followings, this is truly the season for sharing and helping others.
I am so proud to be associated with all of you.

Warmest Regards,
and may you all have a Safe and Joyous Holiday
and a Happy New Year

Subject: Re: Need a favor

With McLisa's permission:

We all know how Nat and Schanke were hooked on coffee and donuts.  Well going
to LCA3 did the same to me. I'm hooked bad.   I became aware of this great
coffee shop.  One on every other block in Toronto.  Yes, it's Tim Horton's.
After trying to find a web site for them and then calling on the phone, they
don't ship. Is there any FK fan out there in Canada cyber land that would do
me a favor and ship some to me? Please email me off list.  It' would only
cost you time.  Which I would greatfully reward by sending you a copy of the
current FK ad in the Hollywood Reporter.  I'll even let you select a tshirt
from my line, for your trouble.
Thanks so much All.  Your a great bunch of people.  Then again, what would
you expect from fans following such a great show.
