Ted Clayton, 2014 Christmas Elf Extraordinaire

MMMCEEV, pronounced ‘3MC5 Award’
No votes are taken – Marge’s decree! Godspeed to the recipient, the spirits are with you!
Marge also decreed 12.21.14 that this year and going forward the award winner would receive founder shares of David Mills in CREinFocus LLC (one of Marge’s legacy interests) valued at $1000.

12.23.10 David Mills
My instructions arrived on December 21st 2010 that an award was to be established honoring the person who through the year expressed the most consistent Christmas Spirit and who otherwise displayed exuberant chutzpah regarding all of life’s interventions.
MMM Elf AwardInterestingly, this award was proclaimed and transmitted through the cosmos on the day of the winter solstice and on the particular day when the moon was full and a full lunar eclipse was occurring. It was reported that this convergence of planetary and calendar events had not occurred in some 2000 years. This inaugural recognition also occurs near the tenth anniversary of Marge’s transcendence from this earthly plane.
It was instructed that the award be announced on Facebook the week of Christmas where today 500 million people could potentially be infected with the Christmas Spirit. What is amazing about this instruction is that Facebook wasn’t even a twinkle in the eye of Mark Zuckerberg when Marge ‘checked out.’ Facebook in Heaven – unbelievable?
Good vibrations – anything is possible!

The award, I was told, carries with it certain attributes, requirements and distinctions.
First, the attributes. The theme song is ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ and the recommended version is Dianna Krall. The official color is ‘shiny s*&!#t’ and should be worn, adorned and displayed everywhere. The scent is night blooming cereus. The tag line is ‘piss-elegant’ and the official movie is ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ while the symbolic food is turkey and the cocktail is Heaven Hill and Sprite. Decorations are required to include white feathers, either from angel plucking or fan-dance attire.
Second, the requirements. ‘Whatever your heart suggests.’
Third, the distinctions. These seemed a bit more ethereal but may manifest in unsuspected ways. The recipient will be accompanied by heavenly hosts and mischievous spirits throughout the year. The spirit of Marge will appear without apparent request when some unrecognized need is present.
If you’ve gotten this far in the reading, it might be obvious this wasn’t a planned communication on my part and I hope I have included everything I was supposed to convey (I haven’t even sent my Christmas messages yet!).
If you were tagged in this message, here is how that happened (how did Marge know what a tag meant?). ‘All the ones that you think loved me, tag. I’ll get to the others later. (Gives me chill bumps – thankfully the best kind.)
