I Have got to set this up, my 6 year old will totally get a kick out of it *giggles madly* Adding to my good pile Jenny xoxo

  15. So creepy! I find the Elf on a Shelf to be one of the creepier things in life. I’ve only started watching Who in the past month or so and thus got introduced to the Angels last week. THAT was scary. This is creepy on so many levels…

  16. I hate the Weeping Angels! The vast majority of elves suck too!
    I think I just made some powerful enemies…
    And being a Whovian rocks, right, Bloggess?

    The Hook recently posted The Hook Weighs In….

  17. I’m sure the Elf is thinking, “I am SO GLAD I don’t really have eyelids right now.” Also, there’s NO WAY I’d own a Weeping Angel. I’d be too afraid to go to sleep, you know, just in case.

  18. The utter fabulousness of the creep factor…

    Yes.

  27. I wonder if a black hole will appear between the two.

Of course the Angels are actually terrifying and make me happy I live in the suburbs far from statues except the one on campus but that one isn’t creepy it’s just confusing and don’t go near it.

We do the Elf on the Shelf (I did all the cute things last year, this year she just hides in a new place every night, if I remember to move her. Otherwise she was just too tired and didn’t find a new hiding place, my daughter doesn’t really care), but our elf is a cute little stuffed one that doesn’t creep me the eff out.

  180. There are simply no words for how much awesome is displayed here..

  181. This is our FIRST season with “the elf”. Those eyes creep me out. I’m waiting to place it in a new place, only to have its head swivel and talk to me in a Chucky voice.

  182. Actually, this just looks like a pretty average episode of Doctor Who. I’d check Moffat doesn’t read your blog, if I were you. He’ll be stealing ideas for next years Christmas episode xx

  183. This is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. Well, since Haley flipped off everyone at her Thanksgiving performance.
    fucking hilarious. Thank you!

  184. Most excellent Elf Shelf usage!

  185. Every time I see a weeping angel statue, my eyes widen and I’m afraid to blink. Then I really need to blink.

    Your elf has the advantage. Painted open eyes.

  186. You have almost 200 comments from the picture. You must be the bloggess.

  187. This. Is. Awesome. I need a weeping angel!!!!

  188. Thank you Jenny! Going through a bout of mental troubles (not as bad as a real mental illness, but still a problem) and I come here multiple times a day for cheering up or inspirational entries. While I have always just lurked, I want to remind you that you have a tremendous impact on many, many lives. Best of luck with those troublesome elves!

  189. Oh, I purchased the audio version and now I feel robbed! I won’t see the pictures!!!! What to do, what to do???
    Loving it, by the way :)

  190. I have a collection of Christmas angels – no weeping one (not EVER) and no elves, but I LOVE Dr Who and totally get this picture – but will NEVER get the ingredients for my own! Too scary by half. Love your wacky sense of humour Jenny. Have a great Christmas with your family and friends.

  191. OMG this makes me so happy, you have no idea.

  192. How the hell can you live with that statue in your house? I. Would. Never. Sleep.

  193. Oh man… a friend of mine just sent me this link. NOW I totally get Elf on a Shelf. Good thing my kids are grown.

  194. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this blog! Yesterday I stumbled upon the Barefoot Blonde blog via Pinterest. I’ve spent most of today depressed by the fact that a self absorbed dingbat who lacks a basic understanding of the English language (seriously it’s I’ll not ill) has something of a cult following. Today I found your blog. Balance has been restored to my universe.

  195. Bwahaha ha ha!!! So awesome!

  196. Now that I’ve seen this, all I can think is that it would be totally kick ass for Dr. Who to battle the Shelf Elf himself!

    Molly Dugger Brennan recently posted The Permission Pixie.

  197. Day. Made.

    Just wish I hadn’t already sent out my Christmas Cards… Oh well, I guess I can still order a weeping angel online and recreate this to freak my husband out next week :)

  198. I dont trust that elf, just cause he is all over pinterest does not make him OK.

    Nikki recently posted Curly hair is complicated, but Justin it is OK to be straight.

  199. There is someone posting elf on a shelf pictures. These are pretty funny. http://imgur.com/gallery/P0ELb

  200. Elf on a Shelf scares the shit out of me. I don’t like tattle-tales. I mean really, he watches you all day, heads up to the north pole, tells on you to Santa and then when he returns, he hides from you cause he is “funny”. Creepy.

    JIll recently posted Packing up the newborn outfits, moving on to bigger diapers.

  201. Our Elfie didn’t last 12 hours in our house and HAD TO GO! He really creeped out twin B. She couldn’t bear the thought of being’watched’ while she was sleeping. She suffered with insomnia worrying that the little guy would be in her room. http://undercovertwins.wordpress.com/2012/12/12/the-elf-on-the-shelf-epic-fail-for-this-family/

  202. I stole this and posted it to Facebook as a test. I also gave out your web address. Sorry for the weirdos currently coming your way…

  203. I just saw this posted on Facebook by someone who found it on G+. I thought it looked familiar, so I had to make sure the original source was referenced in the comments :)

  204. *gasp* And they dispute this being an original Bloggess image! Surely this wasn’t copied from somewhere else…

    (It’s original. They’re still in place on the table as we speak. Bet them a grand that it belongs to me and I’ll send you proof. ~ Jenny)

  205. Best picture ever! I don’t watch Dr.who but my teenage son does-I couldn’t wait to show him this picture to him! Best picture ever! (Might e because this is the one dr.who part I know!). Whomever stole it from you is definitely on the naughty list

  206. You just won the Elf on the Shelf game. Perfection.

  207. I didn’t realise that Dr Who was available in USA as well. Somehow, I never expected that there would be an American audience for this series (coming up 50 years since the first episode). It has been compulsive viewing in Aust. since then.

    I just Googled this Elf on the Shelf and fully understand why the Angel is about to wipe it out. Blink Elf, Blink!

  208. I have to say…the Angel episodes are the creepiest thing. I’ve seen two of them so far, and I think there might be more coming, but I don’t know yet, since I haven’t watched Doctor who in like 36 hours and I’m starting to go through withdrawal and I really want to get caught up with the rest of the Doctor Who world, but my kids have been having their Christmas concerts and wow, is this really all supposed to be one sentence? Somehow I think I should have taken a breath in there somewhere! Anyhow, I LOVE this picture, even though it creeps the hell out of me, because really….those Angels are terrifying! (And the Elf is creeptastic too!)

    I LOVE THIS
    I have been thinking it since the Elf got here !!!

  210. Love, love, love this pic! Almost makes me want to get one of those weird elves just to do something like this. Of course…I’d need a Weeping Angel as well..

    Mid December, our elf mysteriously disappeared. Kids didn’t do it, I didn’t do it, hubs didn’t do it. I think I should have taken this MAGIC elf more seriously
