Re: Anime Thread of Doom

Boyfriend and I watched the first episode, and thought it seemed charming, but not enough to prioritise it above the many other things we're watching together (including, on the thread topic, Sakura Quest, March Comes in Like a Lion, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept., and My Hero Academia).

Re: Santa Claus

When I spent Christmas away from home Santa came early to deliver stockings that I took with me for the day itself.

We've never openly discussed Santa not being real? I don't want to risk losing my socks and chocolate, you know.

Would you believe the dragon was easier than the sloth? It's intricate, but all the folds are actually pretty simple. The sloth was a nightmare, my first attempt managed to split completely in half.
