Little Ho Peep is getting measured for a dress in front of a mirror as Keith talks to her. She's played by Emmanuelle Vaugier, who has been seen in a few shows we've recapped. Considering that her most sympathetic role was as a Gypsy who turned her back on her heritage on Charmed, I think a talk with her agent might be in order. Anyway, Ho Peep doesn't know anything other than that Haaron has "an ass like an eighteen-year-old wrestler." Honey, did you have to go there? My brain really can't take being completely shorted out today. Anyway, the husband enters and flaps his yap about Haaron for a while. Keith mentally affixes horns to the guy's head. Scene.
School. As Veronica watches Duncan and Sean eating pizza from across the courtyard, VMVO worries about the diary, but tells herself that maybe everything will work out, since it's Christmas. Wallace interrupts Veronica's reverie (and that's a sentence for which I'm going to have to create a macro) and says nothing of interest (and we have macro #2). Logan grabs some pizza and sits next to Duncan, but Duncan looks at him like he read Duncan's secret diary. Which, if Logan's really seeing Weevil, might happen awfully soon. Sean impatiently tells Duncan and Logan to kiss and make up, but Duncan just stands there glowering as Logan throws a kiss in his direction. He's got so much love to give. Convenient, that, considering the forums. Veronica and Weevil appear, and Veronica says she has good news and bad news, both of which are that she knows who stole the money. She announces that Logan will host another game that night. Logan mentions the Christmas party, but Veronica pooh-poohs that, and says that when she tells them who did it, the rest of them will buy her into the game: "I'll just take the place of whoever stole the money." Logan's still resistant, but Veronica points out that they might actually see their stuff returned if Weevil gets his cash. Logan asks whether she even knows how to play. Veronica, after a pause: "No. But it must be really hard if all you guys play." Duncan cocks an eyebrow. Hee. I'm quite liking him this episode, not that I disliked him before. Veronica smiles and walks off into the commercial break.
Casa De Tacky Decorations And Tackier Husbands. The Echolls parents greet the Kane parents. Lynn says she hopes the Kanes aren't going to be blubbering over Lilly's death like they were last year. Jake, on the other hand, says he's got a bet with Mommie Sneerest that Haaron can't keep his pants on through the whole party. Okay, none of that happened, but don't you wish it had?
