So one of the neighborhood crack-junkies- one who's always polite and fairly decent to deal with- liked my scarf.
And I thought about how the scarf came to me: as a completely unexpected gift from a friend-of-a-friend. For which I paid nothing. And I knew she was outside for the night... and it is pretty freaking cold.

So, I gave this random homeless woman- or at least strongly-disadvantaged woman- something to keep warm.

Happy Christmas, everyone.
  • Awww, that's nice. Thanks for sharing, with her and with us.

    • TELL NO-ONE.
      I wouldn't want to ruin my reputation as a hard-assed jerk.
      • points and laughs and runs away
        • O GODDAMMIT
          • That was awfully sweet of you, downright gentlemanly...[/badfake DickensFaire Cockney]

            (Would you object to a replacement? I'm always looking for good homes for my learning experiences, and just got a bunch of new yarn in and need to make a test piece or two...)
  • Aww. Merry Christmas for that.
  • So hahah wow. A: fucking COLD out and I notice through more than a few pints. B: I can now be described as a person who'll give his own clothes to a complete stranger.
    Well fuck me running.
    • I always knew you were a softie.

      Some drunk dude just banged on my window and wished me a merry Christmas. Vancouver is weird, but charming with it.
    • Fucking you running would be very tricky and require a lot of flexibility.
  • I did that last year, only it was a scarf I'd made myself. I blew several days of my life doing it, then wondered why I'd wasted the time, especially since I never really wore it. So I made something good of it by giving it to the homeless guy who lives in the parking lot of the grocery store I go to. It didn't seem worth mentioning... unless I've already mentioned it, in which case I'll be terribly embarrassed by my fake humility.
  • Thanks, my cockles are feeling toastier now. Happy Christmas!
  • That's just the kind of thing that completely embodies the spirit of Christmas.

    As always, you rock, Evercool.
  • I believe that you pretty much exemplified the bit of "God Bless Ye, Merry Gentlemen".
  • Cool.
  • Yer a guid yin.
