Best – Gifts – Ever!

Santa was extremely good to me this year. Highlights from my list of goodies are…

  • A new pair of black and red stripey gloves
  • A shiny chrome USB memory stick
  • An adoption certificate for a grape vine (including a tour and a tasting at the vinyard)
  • A little robot that walks up walls
  • A little crystal skull(!)
  • A poseable weeping angel
  • A lith print from Riva in Italy
  • An iPod Touch (engraved with “We are all made of stars”)
  • Money for driving lessons
  • A flight to see the Aurora Borealis (including a speaker)

How exciting! I’m especially looking forward to that last one… I can only hope that all the things I gave were nearly enough to say a proper thank you for all of these.

Merry Christmas to one and all!

    Re: We are all made of stars
    I’m really excited about it! The trip isn’t for a couple of months yet, so I’m just having to be patient for now…

    We are all made of stars
    I love that line :)
    I’m pretty jealous re getting to see auroras :)

    yeah, it’s kinda brutal, but it beats working a full shift during store hours, which might kill me, so I put up with it.

    Man… getting up at 5am. 5am doesn’t normally exist in my vocabulary. When it does, I usually see it from the other side (and realise I should get some rest soon).

    I had to look that one up, hilarious that you gave yer dad a title.
    well, I worked 6 days up till xmas at 5 am everyday, so getting up at 7 was actually sleeping in 3 hours! turns out, no one got up till much later, by which time I was hungry, tired, cranky, so I went back to bed.

    Oh right! Yeah, this is a song lyric (Moby, I think) as well as a personal catchphrase of mine…
    Up since 7? Just like a little kid! That’s so sweet… ;)
    Alaska would probably be a good place to go, actually. I bet you’d come back with some unbelievable photos too! The gift’s actually from my Dad. We always get each other unusual gifts. One year I bought him the title “Laird of Kincaven”! :)

    I think the crowley quote was “we are all stars”
    yeha, it’s earaly here yet, 10:30 am. I’ve been up since 7 reading the Achewood archives. I’m waiting for everyone to get up and my buddy to bounce over so we can dig into our stockings!!! I love stockings!
    I would also like to see the lights, I guess I could go up to canada! who got you that gift? it’s so inventive and exciting

    Crowley quote? If it is, it wasn’t intentional! ;)
    I’m not entirely sure where the plane would fly to — I think it’s a big round trip past the North or Scotland and back down… Northern lights! I’ve never seen them before…
    How’re you? Having a good yule?

  9. madsophia says:

    is that a Crowley quote?
    yeah northern lights! where will you fly to?
