I love this.

I am beyond words for this one.
Really.
Truly.
You all are just amazingly talented people.

I love all of the "days" but "famous last words"...oh man...that was the keyboard.

Is there a secret clubhouse where you all get together to talk when I'm not watching??




You've made me rust the gin pail.

There will be consequences.

We heart Miss Snark!

Wishing you a very happy holiday, and all the blessings you can carry for the new year.

Famous last words!! Flaming hairdos! That last shot of the hooks was just too funny.

Laura K said...

Wow, do I wish I had that kind of talent!! You all are amazing...I thank you for saying what the rest of us would if we knew how.

My son and I sang all the way through. Snarkalicious. Well done, all! Cheers, Miss Snark and KY, you deserve it.

Wonderfully clever and a well-deserved tribute to Miss Snark.

And may we all find a new keyboard under the tree tomorrow morning.

Merry Christmas

Zuleme said...

That's wonderful, and as a videographer I know just how much work it was! I'm glad someone figured out how to say a proper thank you.
I have learned more from your blog than any writing course or workshop I ever took so add my thanks to Christmas too. If I ever get that darn book rewritten and sent to the editor who said she'd read it last March, it will be because of the inspiration I get from everyone whose work I have been reading here.
And I will be less of a nit wit too.
Thanks again from Zuleme

Miss Snark, you do something great, and we all want you to know that we apreciate it, even if it is just so we'll send you less nitwitry (wink). Major props to you, and a happy holiday!

pjm said...

That was truly amazing. I admire all who worked so hard on that.

Tina said...

Yes, please, add my many thanks, not only to Miss Snark, but to the clever Snarkling army who created and delivered this.

Kudos, guys and gals. Your creativity is exceptional (and it's nice to see your faces).

Bright blessings to you all! Peace and joy.

Yes, I have to jump in with a thank you. You snarked me pretty severely earlier in the week, and, I admit I'm still pissed. Getting a little less pissed as the sting wears off. I submitted "any 250 words" that would hook your interest (taking direction from the COM FAQs) and my quiet novel has no flaming hair, vampires, or sharp-tongued YA characters. I guess as I lick my wounds I still need to whine. BUT..BUT, now I know that a hook has the X, Y, Z, and L. So, even though you will never love my style or quiet story, I did learn something. So, thank you. Damn it.

Wow, writerinthestorm. Awesome.

Very nice gesture, folks! Great job.

jamiehall said...

The "secret clubhouse" was done with private messaging on the Absolute Write message boards. Alas, I did not contribute but I knew it was going on and kept the secret.

Bernita said...

Merry Christmastide, Dear Heart.

Bonnie Shimko said...

Oh, WOW! That's an amazing piece. You certainly are loved, Miss Snark.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Yup, there's a secret hangout we use. It's where we're plotting to take over the Internet and make Barbara Bauer queen of ... uhh... nothing.

Merry Christmas, oh Leader of the Snarklings. Hope KY gives you what you most want!

The photo of George at the end is what ruined my keyboard....

Sam said...

I kept hitting pause on the photos of George Clooney. Damn he's hot!

I hope you find him under your tree!

HUGS and BEST WISHES

Marva said...

Happy Holidays, too, from those of us failing to leave contact info on our blogs. Rats! ALL of us would have loved to "sign" the card.

Michele said...

So glad to have been a small part of it.

In addition to the Absolute Write boards, one person went to the web pages of snarkling commenters and contacted others of us.

My hook might get snarked by new year, but so far it's been educational. The last crapometer was quite helpful.

Kim said...

Merry Christmas and here's looking forward to another year of hooks, lines, and sinkers - with a great deal of Snarkasm thrown in for luck!

I heart Miss Snark!

bunnygirl said...

I mostly just lurk, but Happy Everything, Miss Snark! It's a creative little group you have here!

Dee said...

Happy Holidays Miss Snark, and to KY...

loved the video...and loved what you do on your blog...ain't life grand!

Tattieheid said...

To Miss Snark, family and all her fans have a good Christmas and may 2007 bring all you desire.

This is a brilliant video and cheered me up no end. Thank you.

Crystal Charee said...

Alright, I'm not gonna get snarked before the holiday, but at least this way I'll have a lovely Damocles Christmas.

Merry Christmas Miss Snark! You rock too hard!

Joelle said...

Brilliant job, snarklings.
And happy holidays, Miss Snark.
Thanks for everything!

inherwritename1 said...

Miss Snark, the secret is out. You're an old softie! I'll never tell.

Consequences, indeed.

Merriest,

That was awesome! Southern writer looks like Jamie Lee Curtis in that photo.

Merry X-mas all!

I heart Killer Yapp

overdog said...

Snark is tops. Can't wait to have a website so I can say it better.

Brady Westwater said...

Amzing, amazing job all concerned! And thank you Ann Crispin for organizing it all!!

MichaelPH said...

This has become a love-fest! That was a lovely video...thanks to Miss Snark and Merry Christmas! AS a schoolteacher for the last decade and a half I can say this Crapometer is like grading 700 essays. Not fun. Endless.
Thanks Miss Snark, you are a daily snark-ucation!
Michael

Brady Westwater said...

OOOPS!

Gave wrong credit for video. It was our very own Southern Writer, Lesia Valentine, who herded all us cats into the Snark corral!

Terry said...

I wasn't aware of the 'secret hangout' but was ever so thankful that someone thought of this, and then took the time to backtrack contact information from all the comment threads so I could take part.

I have learned SO much.

The best to you, KY and Grandmother Snark in 2007.

Angus Weeks said...

Kudos to the creators for coming up with a suitable thank you for Miss Snark.

Could I ask, does anyone have the text for it? I'd like to see the whole of it but unfortunately my dial-up connection has taken 5 minutes to load up to the start of the third day of Christmas. I think it will disconnect me for the next week if I make it load any more.

Southern Writer said...

There will be consequences? Bring it. Let's see what ya got. Wait. What am I saying? I know what you've got. And I don't want it pointed at me.

How could we not say thank you for all those hooks, not to mention your work all year? I don't always agree with you, but I always respect you. You are a force of nature. An original. You're awesome, Miss Snark. Best wishes for the coming year and always.

cm allison said...

I add my thank-yous! to both the crew who created such a masterpiece and Miss Snark who's hard work and devotion to her Snarklings inspired it. All of you "rock"! May the New Year bless the conspirators with publishing contracts and Miss Snark with best selling clients! (And a reduction in nitwit querie.)

Merry Christmas / Happy Hannuka / Joyous Kwanza and all other blessed events this season to all

Chumplet said...

Snarklings, you did a fabulous job of putting into words and pictures what we all think of Miss Snark. Well done! I only wish I could have been part of it, but I don't have a blog.

Miss Snark, you rock!

dink said...

Excellent video! Couldn't be better (southernwriter and cohorts ROCK!) ...wish I hadn't gotten the news about it TOO LATE to add my THANK YOU

but then ...it's NOT too late.

THANK YOU and the tammed one too!

Ski said...

You're still da best! But... I have to ask... is this part of your court ordered community service? Mind you, not that it would in any way lessen what we love about you.

With My Warmest Regards.......Ski

Marlo said...

Actually, your snarklings tracked us down at our various secret clubhouses, and instructed us to remove the evidence.

There isn't a writer I haven't told to follow the snark. Every day. You're as irreplacable as standard manu formatting. But you make me smile more often.

Thank you.

And a warm thanks to the other snarklings, many of whom can also be counted on to make our nitwit moments a lot more funny and a lot less lonely.

To sharing stories! *toast*

And editing...which I have to get back to...:P

S. W. Vaughn said...

Ya know we luvs ya. :-) Now kick back and celebrate... you earned it!

(WOOT for Southern Writer! Awesome job!)

skybluepinkrose said...

There's not much new to add, but you really ARE talented people. The video is awesome.

randomsome1 said...

Nooo! No rusted gin pails!

:)

Seriously, though, I've learned a lot. Thanks for helping us all out so much!

Snitchcat said...

Love the video! What great entertainment.

Thank you, Miss Snark for all the information you provide us with. Have learned lots and lots.

Hope you had a great Christmas.

~Nancy said...

Thanks to you, Miss Snark (as I was quoted in the video :-)).

I'll admit I was in a less than good mood yesterday even though I was off from work (I didn't have a good night's sleep).

But when I clicked on the video (and I can only do it at home, as I'm blocked from You Tube here at work), I had such a blast...it was so funny...esp. the part with the gin. :-)

Lesia and all others who helped create the video - you ROCK!

And, of course, so does Miss Snark.
