Shelf Critter Advent Calendar – Day 19

The Nest is helping to turn the holiest time of the year into the most utterly messed up time of the year.  We’re counting down to Christmas with our Shelf Critter Advent Calendar… and after several weeks of door by door disaster, we’ve finally reached the bottom row in our stolen off the internet and horribly Photoshopped onto the SCT stage hand-crafted calendar!  Here it comes, your 19th nervous breakdown….

Oh boy, I’ll bet today is just going to reek of the Christmas spirit.  It’s the Shelf’s always pleasant skunk, Rainy.  How is your holiday going, ma’am…

RAINY: Awful!  Just absolutely awful, thanks for asking.

I’m sorry somebody took a leak in your bowl of Shredded Wheat.  If you don’t mind me bothering you with a question…

RAINY: Yes, I do mind you bothering me with a question!

Well, since you’re a part of the SCAC, I’m afraid I need you to tell the readers out there what Christmas means to you.

RAINY: It means dreaming of a wet Christmas….. which NEVER happens here!

But Rainy, doesn’t a white Christmas look so much more magical?

RAINY: No, it doesn’t!  And get this ugly fake snow out of my precious rain gauge at once!!!

Sorry Rainy, but everyone thinks it looks cute.  And you do want to satisfy The Nest’s loyal audience, right?

RAINY: You want me to satisfy the audience?  I’ll give them something to remember my appearance by!  It’s time to turn this into a green Christmas!

Careful kids, don’t eat the green snow…

  1. you want a wet christmas? you can celebrate with us… the rain is always there so we get a shower as soon as we leave the house…

  2. The only thing that would have made Rainy’s “gift” of green for Christmas better would have been the “red” of Zeeba’s latest BLOOD KILL…… and green never looked so good for the holiday as they do at The Nest!


  3. Oh Rainy a wet Christmas indeed, well maybe a wet summer but never a wet Christmas.

  4. So THAT’s who was lurking behind my vinyl fence that the boys (my boys) found so intriguing vis a vis scent and which I had to go indoors and visit the porcelain throne from smelling? (longest run on sentence going today)… 😛 Gee thanks Rainy for providing us with a truly ‘green’ Christmas. Even if that does mean the shade some of our faces turned…

  5. Oh Rainy…you know just when to deliver a punch line. As in straight to the nose. 👃🏻

    Urgh, that came right out of my laptop screen. Damn this new “full sensory experience” technology.

    Rainy should spend the holidays here. December is almost always unbearably wet and dismal. We’ve had about three inches of rain over the past couple of days. The rivers are flooding, there are landslides – Rainy would love it!

    • Hmmmm… as much as Rainy loves the rain, I’m not sure what she would think about mud. It just might change her mind if she ever stepped in a mud puddle or got buried in a mudslide…
