yep, a whole gang of my favorite intergalactic hooligans** have dropped in to help us get ready for a big holiday celebration. fortunately one of the first things they discovered on this planet was the sketch saturday blog, so they knew exactly how to arrange themselves for maximum photogenic benefit.
*just in case you have NO IDEA what i'm talking about: in autumn 2008 i bought i roll of paperchase giftwrap with these uber-cute alien/monsta creatures on it, and for some reason, i decided i should use one of them on a holiday card. and thus a (surprisingly popular) tradition was born.
**the lads would like me to assure santa, if he's reading this, that they now understand that reindeer are our friends, and NOT, under any circumstances, a tasty snack. also, they are sorry about the damage to the sleigh. it won't happen again. (some of those chimbleys come up REALLY FAST tho, it must be said.)
