HELP THE ELF: I Found Santa’s Missing Nice List!

Hi everyone! As you may remember, a few weeks ago PETE the Elf had a touch too much Eggnog at the Holiday Christmas Party and as he stumbled home, he lost Santa's NICE LIST.

The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.

Ever since I read about it, I've been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!

Yes that's right...I found part of Santa's missing NICE LIST. There it was, fluttering in the wind, half caught under the corner of my welcome mat. And shock of all shocks, I recognized the name, and I bet you will too.

Here it is below:

ImageChef.com

NAME: Candace Ganger

LOCATION: Lost in Candyland

NICE LEVEL: 98.6%

NAUGHTY LEVEL: 100%

OBSERVATIONS: Candace is jaded, but she's the good kind of jaded, where she doesn't take spit from anybody, cracks the best jokes, and has no problem sharing a virtual beer with a friend who needs one.

RECOMMENDATION:

a) Coal                   b) Gift - an ebook copy of Open Minds, by Susan Quinn

~ ~ * ~ ~

Because poor Pete is dashing all over the place trying to hunt down the rest of Santa's missing Nice List, I decided to handle this one. Candace, I'm so proud to call you my friend! Enjoy the gift I sent to your inbox and have a wonderful Christmas! Booyah.

I love this! (And not just because you're lovin' on my book!!) It's a sign of how crazed my life has been lately that I haven't heard of this terrible crisis caused by Pete's unfortunate Eggnog predilection. :) Thanks for including me in the fun.

Bwahaha, I LOVE the naughty/nice percentages! That's awesome, Matt! Candace is a great choice--she's face a ton of challenges this past while and has done so with love, friendship and finesse!

Pete asked me to pass on a giant thank you for helping him out. I'm sending you both big virtual beers, hugs and bacon and wishing you the very best of Christmases!

Nicely done. 100% naughty? Sounds about right.
