I remind myself of Cruella De Vil in this picture."

We all tag-teamed this Open Thread from our holiday break locales — Des Moines, Fort Lauderdale, New Jersey, and TriBeCa — and through a series of egg nog (Amber actually likes it) and candy-cane (I bite them through the wrappers) incoherent text messages present it to you with a big, shiny, dumb metaphorical bow on top and a couple days late, sorry.

If you're in a holiday kind of haze too and have no idea where to start, warm up by answering one or more of these not-so random questions: 

Have you ever been snowed in?

What is the best ever — in your opinion — Holiday cocktail?

Will you be doing any post-Holiday shopping?

When do you go back to work?

Do you prefer Netflix or Amazon Prime?

Did you watch Making a Murderer and do you agree that it's better than Serial and The Jinx?

Now, please join us and share stories from your week, your year, your last moment, ask or give advice, or post remarkable giggle-worthy gifs. Claim this, and every, Open Thread as your place to say whatever you want, however subtle or glaring or silly or obvious, however you want, with no judgement, no awkwardness, no self-awareness even and no you-can't-say-that-out-loud tongue-biting.
