I had a really nice, peaceful Christmas. I just got done watching The Muppet's Christmas Carol with my mother. It stars Michael Caine as Scrooge. Last night we watched A Christmas Story as we do every Christmas Eve. Today Becky [ profile] miss_lixx decided to drive down and join my family for Christmas dinner! I made her a Superdrug gift basket, full of Lime & Mint shower power gel, Lime & Mint soaps, and 'Adventurous' body spray! She loved it...I assume considering she was bouncy and smiling. hehe. <33

My mom gave us Pepparkakor, a Norwegian biscuit (for those you don't know, my mother is Norwegian and there's always a fair amount of Scandavian influence going around in my household...) and when you get the biscuit, you press it down with your finger, if the biscuit breaks into 3 pieces, you get good luck for the upcoming year!!!! If it breaks into more or less than 3 pieces, well then, it really doesn't mean anything....2 out of my 3 biscuits broke into 3 pieces!! very good luck.

What I got for Christmas
From my family
a generous cheque
David Bowie- Aladdin Sane (30th Anniversary 2CD Edition)
David Bowie- The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (30th Anniversary 2CD Edition)
The Strokes- Room on Fire
Strawberry Shortcake socks
Candy (lifesavers, snickers)
an Irish flag pin
a Rovada watch from Ireland
acrylic paints
flannel pajamas with teddy bears on them
From Becky
a Marilyn Monroe and James Dean handbag, with rhinestones were Marilyn's diamond jewerly is. (the strange thing is that I was thisclose to buying one of those during the past few months but something always came up and stopped me from buying one!)
From Terra
George W. Bushisms, edited by Jacob Weisberg (it's a book full of dumb things George W. Bush has's pretty lengthy ;) my favourite one so far is "One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures"..)

From Heather
A cute coin purse with Marilyn Monroe and her doggie on it!! so adorable. <3

I think I posted on the wrong message. I don't really know what the hell I'm doing. But whatever. I wanted to add that the pics are really cool, and I'm glad you liked the Cranberries-esque one, that turned out nice. And I love the red light district crack. I got the pics of us on Wardour St. developed, and the light show playing on the white wall behind us got blow out by the flash, so it's just us posing all stupidly in front of a white wall. But it's kinda funny. I'll scan them when I get back home and send them to you. But I'll talk to you before that. Cheers!
