I am sure if most of you took a guess at what I’d been doing for the past 5 days since I last blogged you’d probably say something like “spending Christmas with your family!” Of course, it’d be a huge lie; I’ve actually been playing Animal Crossing non-stop for about a week.
After doing the brief family thing on Christmas Day/Boxing Day eve, Karl and I returned home to play with the goodies Santa brought, and relax away from noise and children (much the same thing, honestly). Talking of which — goodies that is, not children — I am now the owner of a Fujifilm FinePix S5600 which (compared to the previous camera) is an absolute beast. (Thank you Mummies!) I’ve not had chance to really play with it yet, but rest assured I’ll be filling up my web space with gratuitous shots of boring crap shortly.
Amongst other gifts, I received a gorgeous smelling leather camera bag and 1Gb xD-Picture card from Karl (lots of “cuddles” for him :9 ) and plenty of chocs from my brother (Kristofer) and sister.
obsessions aside, I think one of the best moments this Christmas was watching my niece open the Tickle Me Elmo X. For those who’ve not had the opportunity to see it (the Elmo), I direct you to YouTube. She immediately starting copying it — lying on the floor kicking her legs and patting her belly. It was hilarious, and if I didn’t have a hatred for children being exploited for cheap web hits you KNOW I’d upload the video.
Right. My potatoes are boiling over, so I must dash.. safe to say I’ve had a jolly Christmas so far, only marred by the lack of my father. Heyho, maybe next year!
