I Finally Got Excited About Christmas

Now for the best Christmas Eve I've had planned in many a year.

JatB and I are having high tea at the Ritz today. We booked the tickets in February, and booked the date in September. It's going to be a difficult choice between beef and horseradish sandwiches or cucumber with no crusts, but there'll be plenty of well dressed penguin suited chaps to confuse the deicision further. I can't think of a better place to spend Christmas Eve, or better company.

So here's my blog Christmas card to all the readers, especially the six loyalists who continued to read last Thursday when the shag-blogs had alienated the other 183. Merry Crimble!

The Last Christmas Cracker* Joke Survey 7:
Q. What do you call a chicken in a shell suit?
A. An egg.
(WHSmith ; best of the bunch!)

[I fixed all the Christmas Cracker links; click on the word 'Cracker' on each post to get a different Christmas jingle to play each time]

For some reason that comment reminded me of poo.

Hey, I got a message from a scene dyuke yesterday, complimenting me on my blog, and commiserating on the noisy hetties upstairs. As I live on the top floor, I was quite confoozled for a while, till I realised, she had confused my blog with Creepy Lesbo's blog. Heh. Next week: Everyone I've ever had Ana| With ...?

Dyke, not Duke, I take it? Mind you, with the anaI comment, I think perhaps the latter might be right..?

Dyke, sorry, yeah. And I haven't had any, not since a particularly horrific nightmare involving half a cutlery drawer, in 1975.

hey lady, hope the tea was swell... so to answer a couple questions you asked of me... Wurtzel's More, Now, Again.. is it any cop? Well considering i am on page 28 after having started it five days ago may say it all... I like her style of writing actually so thats unfair. i read most of przac nation (what happened in the end??) but wasn't all mentally stable (ha) myself and think it made me worse so I gave up. i think she's hot tho... can that be a good reason for reading a book?! thought not.

as for The Hours.. i have to admit that i have not mrs dalloway tho i really should... the hours was excellent!

merry christmas!

Tea with champagne - the best mixture! Cheers, Billy. Merry Christmas!

Hoorah, Miss Fee! Whose blog is ace! Cheers for replying. Well JatB got me The Hours for Christmas (thankfully no sign of that witch Kidman on the cover), so I'll soon find out. Prozac Nation seemed the worst writing I've read for many years, but she's an interesting personality, if that makes sense. Anyway, Merry Christmas...

I thought Prozac Nation was a poorly written Girl, Interrupted.

Abso-bleedin-lutely! Nail - head - hit situation, there, Lux. Although Girl Interrupted wasn't the best book either - it had more.. erm... curio value as a historical piece than anything, I thought. I'm still sticking with the Bell Jar.
