24.12.04 | Christmas Post (Part 1.5: Merry Christymas Yer Arse! Yaay!)

Well well well.

Another year draws rapidly to another heartstopping close... but first... Christmas. And an especial Merry Christmas to all our friends and readers in the Southern Hemisphere, who are currently having some nice weather... how i look on you with envy.

An especially fond thought to a fabulous lady living in Brazil. Everyone go say "Hi!" Her blog is written with superbness! And is better by far than that trashy novel that your unimaginative realtive has bought you for Crimbo.

Dear Santa (and Mr God where applicable)
Thanks awfully for that lovely lovely iPod thing, which i just know you're gonna drop down the chimney (Carefully of course). I am of course especially grateful to you for ignoring (You have ignored, haven't you?) the letters stating that i have changed my name to "Tam", and that i am living in Auckland, New Zealand. And while there may possibly be such a person in that locale, i am sure that you in your Zen-like calm, know that they would much prefer something else...

But prezzies aside. Although they're fun and important, what i really want you to bring to all my friends (linked and yet-to-be linked) plus the "many" other readers of this site, is a sense of the festive spirit, which i fear is being drowned under an avalanche of buying and commercialism (iPod notwithstanding). And if you can't quite manage that, could you bung them some moments of blissful happiness. Please? I'd like that very much. I'd even consider giving my 'Pod to the needy if you did that... certainly i'd be more charitable to everyone.

Also Santa, could you have a word with Him/Her Up There? Y'see, i've been looking for Him/Her for a very very long time now. And i'm kinda tired. I haven't found anything yet that i can truly believe in. Not myself. And certainly not the majority of the human race. Have you seen what they do?!? Dreadful things. Sometimes in His/Her name! And the lies! The lies!!!

Anyway, I'm not asking for a burning bush speaking in some old language... just... something... (Although a 2nd coming might be nice...)

Thanks Santa. I hope this message finds you well. Hope that diet worked out well- although i did hear scurrilous rumours that you'd got obsessed with that Atkinsons Diet, and in a fit of pique, had eaten Rudolf and the other reindeers... but i'm sure they were just that. Rumours.

PS: if yer bored between continents, and i know it's a long night for you, i thought i'd include some little Weebl and Bob cartoons below, with you in mind. We all need a bit of a laugh from time to time.
PS: It's just been pointed out to me that you're very unlikely to be connected to the internet during all that flying, so this post may be in vain.
PPS: But i just know that someone like you will be all hip to all the modern technologies, and are bound to have yer own laptop, with yer own super-efficient Santasoft O.S. installed, and a wi-fi worldwide connection to the web. How could you not?!?

Anyway. May your God(s) bless you and all who sail in you. Good luck. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. More love (again...)

Don't be envious of us in Wellington, NZ. Summer remains elusive for the second year running. At this rate I'll be moving north... It's actually been snowing in various parts of the country!
Thanks for the Weebl links too! Hope you're having a nice Boxing Day. I spent much of mine at the national museum - very absorbing.

hope you had a good christmas.
my dad got my mom a mini iPod. she didn't even know what it was for- hehe! when i saw it i was envious and decided that i want one now! when he gave it to her, i thought about you and wondered what your christmas is like- any traditions in your family? is your family's 'tradition' to be 'un-traditional'? is 'un-traditional' even a word?
in any case, hope you had a nice holiday.
the very best of wishes to you for a happy new year!!

So, jessie, would that be "absorbing" in the same way that a sponge is absorbing? I still think i'd prefer N.Z. and Wellington to here at the moment... i can't remember the last time i saw the sun... it's been grey skies and rain, since it stopped snowing.

B. No traditions in our family. While i adore my folks, they are singularly lacking in imagination.


An iPod mini, eh? Ni-ice! Don't the things look gorgeous? Am amazed at how much my 20gig version accomodates. I've thrown 60+ albums on it so far and it's not even a 3rd full! Plenty of room for all my indie singles and everything...

Hope yer having a nice time in yer respectiv parts of the world.

Hey its sunny over here but it snowed for the first time in 100 years on Christmas Day. For some reason that seemed malevolent to me.

  9:46 am :. Blogger me hollered thusly:

Hope you got your ipod! I got my trip to see my sis & dad for the first time in 20 years, so I'm right chuffed. :)

If it's any consolation to anyone out there - I didn't get an ipod either...


but then again, I don't think I even know how to work one anyways.

Hiya Stella.

BAh! Effin' Ipod! It's not working due to the effing cable that's meant to connect to the mains and recharge it being a faulty bastardo... so all i've got at the moment is an expensive and pretty ornament. Still, it WAS nice for the two days i could use it....


Lynda, that's awesome! Joyyy! I'm so glad for you.

Santa has forgotten me this year!!!

How dare he!!!

Haha, yeah I knew you would like the undies *blinks*
Ohw, how was your Christmas? Did you get what you wanted?

And already for tomorrow; Happy New Year!!!!
