There are still a few days left before Yule. I’ve asked Sigyn what she wants for her present. As usual, she has opted for an experience rather than a gift. With the museums closed, though, doing that this year may be a bit difficult. I’ve suggested that she look through a few of the catalogs in the house to see if there’s anything she likes. With my magic, I can have a gift here almost instantaneously. No need to rely on Usually Smashes Parcels Significantly, Unrepentant Package Squashers, or Fed-up and Exhausted!
Sigyn likes animals, so this may be a good place to start:
What about a bear, my love? You like bears.
Although this one looks as if it might have some giraffe in its background. We should keep looking.
This one looks to be all bear:
Somehow, I can never look at one of these black and white ones without getting an Oreo craving…
What do they have besides bears?
“BIG spotty kitty!”
You don’t think we have enough Feline Felonies in the house already?
What on earth is this thing supposed to be?
Giant aquatic rodent? Suuuuuuure…. I think someone’s making things up over at WWF…
Sigyn thinks the sea lion looks like it is singing.
“Fish, fish, O beautiful fish! Come fill my belly, oh that’s what I wish.”
Or maybe it’s just yawning.
Anything you want, Sigyn. No matter how big.
“Loki! Look at the stripey stockings! Could we get one of these?”
Oh. Oh, no. This was a bad idea.
Sigyn was under the apprehension that this was a catalog we could use to order actual animals. She is heartbroken to learn that one orders a stuffed animal and the money goes to fund conservation efforts.
It really is the safest way to hug a snow leopard, sweetie.
Ah, don’t cry, my love. Look–over there! It’s a different catalog. Let’s go look at that….

P.S. Midgard makes NO sense. There’s another WWF, one that has nothing to do with animals. One of my favorite bits of foolery is this clever mashup between the two WWFs:
