The Christmas Mouse
I love you Christmas mouse.
I love you too, Christmas Mouse. I'm sad this Christmas.
It's so nice to have you back, CM.
I love you christmas mouse!
Are you a vegetarian?
Merry merry Mr. Christmas Mouse! Christmas has officially arrived.
Where's the Liza "Silver Belsh" thread this year? Oh, yeah, I love you too Christmas Mouse.
Be patient with Liza -- she passed out at The Pig while making a run for Schlitz and toaster pastries.
What kind of Christmas tree do you have, Christmas Mouse - plastic, aluminum, or wood?
Answer the question, mouse.
This rodent is an impostor!
Back atcha CM! I'm glad you showed up.
Merry Christmas, Christmas Mouse ...I toast you with a wee cup of piping-hot cocoa and the best wishes of the season ....
R2 - i'm sending you love from across the miles ...this too shall pass.
does Christmas Mouse want to play with my cat? Meow!
I love you too Christmas mouse!
Wish I could send you a nice cheese place, CM.
i thought i noticed droppings in my kitchen. how merry to have you back.
Hello, Christmas Mouse!
Hello, CM! : )
Happy Christmas, Christmas Mouse!
So good to have you here!
Don't worry about the cheese Christmas Mouse, your love and kind words are enough. I raise my mug of cocoa sprinkled with cinnamon & marshmallow to you.
Christmas Mouse, how many of your brethren were killed by Sandy?
This is not the real Christmas Mouse. The real CM would have been here by now.
Alas, I believe r23 is correct. The real Christmas Mouse would offer us comfort and joy.
But I am the Christmas Vole, and wish you all the Happiest of Holidays!
bump, you unloved mf
I love you, Christmas Mouse. Thank you for being here this year.
Well even if it wasn't Christmas Mouse, it was very good of *this* mouse to step up. His sweet message made people feel better and I am sure that was his deepest intention since people were asking for Christmas Mouse.
He is a fine Christmas Mouse in his own right.
Merry Christmas, Christmas mouse to you and to your Christmas mouse elves!!!
It is sad that the appearance of Christmas Mouse on DL is the best present I will get this year. Thanks, CM!
Feel you, R2.
People were so incredibly horrible to CM last year that he probably gave up.
R30 my friends and family live far away from me so you are not alone, Christmas Mouse is a big gift.
I find it helps to find a X-Mas service or midnight mass of caroling. Often the stories are the best that religion has to offer, not nasty sermons about how everyone is a sinner.
The songs are amazingly uplifting, you connect with real people in a joyous way & I guarantee many will be there for the same reason you are, NOT the dogma. Here's one of my favorite choir pieces.
Christmas Mouse, how is your Christmas Eve going? Do you have a fire going while you're downing some hot chocolate?
Mary, your little Datalounge friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Mary, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Mary, there is a Christmas Mouse. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Christmas Mouse! It would be as dreary as if there were no Marys. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence
We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Christmas Mouse! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the hearths on Christmas Eve to catch Christmas Mouse, but even if you did not see the Christmas Mouse drinking cocoa, what would that prove? Nobody sees Christmas Mouse, but that is no sign that there is no Christmas Mouse. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Mary, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
No Christmas Mouse! Thank God! He lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Mary, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
Merry Christmas to all my Datalounge friends.
Christmas Mouse, I hope you are warm and cozy on this white Christmas!
Did you sleep well Christmas Mouse, all warm and snugly?
Where's the "Like" button? I want a Like button for R36. W&W isn't enough.
R39, with minor changes that is the famous "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus" editorial first published in the New York Sun in 1897.
Love you too.
Yes, I know. That's why I like the way it was adapted to the DL Christmas Mouse. When I was age 12, I got a scrapbook/photo album for Christmas and the first page contained a copy of the "If you see it in the Sun..." Virginia O'Hanlon story and "Yes, Virginia" editorial.
I love you, too, Christmas Mouse. Enjoy the holidays!
Happy 4th day of Christmas, CM. Now you've got six French hens and six turtledoves to go with today's birds.
R44, aren't you afraid that they'll eat Christmas Mouse?
What a lovely mouse! Greetings to you too.
Did you get the five golden rings I sent, Christmas Mouse?
Christmas Mouse, what do you think of the cunt troll?
I received a late e-card that featured the Christmas Mouse today!
Are you avoiding the nine ladies dancing today?
Eleven pipers piping on this eleventh day of Christmas.
Christmas greetings to the millions of people who are celebating their Christmas today. (December 25th is not the only date for Christmas.)
