Dear yuletide Santa,
I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow morning, and I probably won't be able to read your story until I get back on the 31st. This makes me very sad, and I hope you don't hold it against me.
Yeah, so I'm probably not going to be around for a while. If I manage to get a hold of internet access, that would be very exciting, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen. :(
