Crossover with Smug Christmas Letters

Dear Friends,

Whew! What a breath-taking year it's been for all of us!! Once again, we've been busy, busy, busy, and we've hardly got the time to put pen to paper!!

Macbeth got a promotion at work this year! Though he started the year as Thane of Glamis, soon enough he was Thane of Cawdor, and then he became King of Scotland after Duncan died quite accidentally and unexpectedly in his sleep by smothering himself with a pillow and then stabbing himself several times! Bad luck for Duncan, but good luck for us, right? I like to think that behind every good man there's a woman encouraging him, and I did my best to encourage Macbeth to be a real "go-getter" this year, and look at the dividends that paid off!

Mrs. Danvers was worried about Lady MacDuff's heirs being a problem, but I gave her a wink and said, "Maybe something she drinks will disagree with her!" and we both laughed and laughed. Keep it to yourself - this kind of thing is supposed to be hush-hush!!!

The whole thing didn't quite go to plan, as those pesky witches and Hecate tried to spoil it for us by filling Macbeth's head with all kinds of paranoia about Banquo, knowing FULL WELL how superstitious he is. Little did Hecate know that my charming husband met Banquo in the Speakeasy Bar right after and they were able to work out whatever problems they had between them. Why, just the other night at dinner Banquo showed up completely unannounced!! He looked a little worse for wear - Macbeth or I would NEVER show up at someone's house with blood all over our face, but to each their own! After all, it is CHRISTMASTIME and I'm sure Mary and Joseph weren't "dressed to the nines" in that manger, either! LOL!

In the meantime, Stanley has taken up operating elevators, and he's gotten pretty good at it! I'm so glad he's found his calling, and getting around the school has been a BREEZE lately now that he can take me from floor to floor. I wish he'd stop singing that "Let's misbehave" song to me, but that's a minor complaint for a MAJOR convenience!!

We've had some new additions to our family this year, too! Nicki Minaj showed up unexpectedly, and she's just been a hoot! Why, just the other night she came into my bedroom shouting, "WHY WON'T YOU PEOPLE LET ME LEAVE?!?!" LOL! I assume that must be one of her new rap songs. Her album with Steampunk Dinosaur, "Doin Thangs", topped the R&B chart for 11 straight weeks!!!!

PHEW!!! That's just about it from us. Hope you had a good year, too. I have to go wash this spot off of my hand. I wonder how it got there??! A CHRISTMAS MYSTERY!!!

Blissfully yours,

Queen Lady Macbeth of Scotland
