Xmas

I don't think I am capable of eating ever again!


And there's so much food we haven't even started on. Ugh, I just don't want to eat it (the exception being the Tiramisu that my mum forgot to defrost for Christmas dinner).





My parents xmas tree this year is very pretty, and frankly very gay...





I got:

A Water Feature that doesn't work
Ghost perfume gift set
Snowflake Bracelet
Moisturiser
Hair Moisturiser
big bag of Maltezers
Mug with a Pixie on
Guylian Shell chocs (can't even comtemplate them)
Wash Bag with cats on
Kill Bill vol 2 DVD
Pirates of the Caribbean DVD
Spyro: A Hero’s Tail PS2
Eeyore’s ‘Gloomy Club’ bowl (I chose that)
Stolichnaya Vodka Gift Set
Bottle of Cointreau (good old sexgoddesshilly!)
Bagpuss cup
Star-shaped Mood light
Cidre and soap from hesadevil (Thanks)


I'm ashamed to say I missed big chunks of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day due to wine induced coma (I wouldn't mind, but I only had a couple of glasses with food).



But all this is tempered by the fact I can't get my mind off these tsunami's in Asia. These things are, of course, horrible, horrible, horrible, but feel so much worse when it happens in places you know (Phuket).

I love the tree, why are you saying it looks gay?

it's really cute and small and the presents look shiny! :)


tell me how you like kill bill 2...gonna make icons of that movie soon..cool movie..okay..no spoilers.


I think the photo doesn't really show how pink this tree is, and some of the ornaments are quite panto dame-ish. It is a gorgeous tree though. My parents and I always have a comptetion to wrap the presents in the most extravegant ways.

I haven't got to Kill Bill yet, but I loved the first one. I always convince myself that I'm not going to like Tarantino films, then I always like them.

I don't think I am capable of eating ever again!


Or drinking!

I got a water fountain pump too - haven't tried it out yet. And there's the little matter of having to go out and collect my own stones for my dragon pot.

I got two Buddahs, too. I asked for one but two turned up at once. A little like London busses.

Haven't seen the news about the tsunamis - better go check out how the FCJs are faring, thanks for the headsup.

FCJ's?

There's never a Buddha when you need one.

Oh and go and look at your feedback!

FCJs (Faithful Companions of Jesus) = the nuns who educated me. The proceeds from the book about the school are going to their missions in the Phillipines, but they are all over Asia, educating girls and women and helping build community housing etc. I think the last lot of sanitary provisions in the Phillipines was lost in the hurricanes of last month.

Feedback! *disappears*

Oh yes, I remember now.

That tree is gorgeous! I like the colors! And I, too, am very saddened by the news this morning.

It's a lovely tree, just a bit pink for my liking.

The tsunami are terrifying, all the more so because they are envitable at some point.

Glad you had a lovely Christmas. Your parents tree is quite flamboyant. And pretty.

But all this is tempered by the fact I can't get my mind off these tsunami's in Asia. These things are, of course, horrible, horrible, horrible, but feel so much worse when it happens in places you know (Phuket).

That's all I've been doing this morning. Watching the news. I just can't believe it. I've been thinking about the tiny, little resort we stayed at this summer in Koh Phi Phi. Not to mention all those teeny fishing villages. Aw crap. It was paradise. So many good people we met. I can't even wrap my brain around the numbers right now.



My mum was quite pleased with the 'flamboyant' description' btw!


I'll make sure I donate to the disaster fund. Seems like Asia is under a right battering at the moment, one way or another. I do so want to go back.

I want to go back too. As soon as we got home we were already talking about going back. No Bangkok though. I think I've told you how I'm not too crazy about the place. But, Phi Phi was wonderful.

Yeah, definately feel a need to help out somehow. The numbers are still mind boggling.

Very nice haul, you must have been a good girl. I had Tiramisu for Xmas dinner and it was, frankly, YUM. Too much chocolate too.
HEEEE! Eeyore! :)
And well the tsunami is dreadful - so many people have died. It's just terrible to start contemplating the numbers...

I believe I now have tiramisu for blood.

I love my Eeyore.


I had a tiramisu drink yesterday with lunch, I don't know how it compares with the real thing, but the drink was wonderful.

There's a drink? Me want!

Kaluha, vanilla liqueur, vanilla ice cream...I don't remember the rest but it was very good.

Kahlua, Disaronno Amaretto, Tuacan (Italian vanilla liqueur) and vanilla ice cream blended, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with chocolate. It didn't give measurements, but the drink was not strong and was served in a hurricane glass so I would guess 1/2 to 3/4 shots of each liqueur.

Shopping list duly updated, thank you.
