What have you got for Christmas this year?
Having desecrated my stocking, I found in it from Father Christmas (really me)

Two tangerines
6:30p (about $12:60c in US terms)
A paddleball bat and ball
A mini chess set
A mouth organ
Some fake penalty tickets to put on random cars at stupid'o'clock in the morning when noone is awake to see me do it :p
A laser pen
A bookmark
A "T" seal and sealing wax
Two packs of Vienesse truffles
Three packs of chocolate coins
A compass
Three mini chocolate logs with marzipan robins
Three chocolate puddings
A small slab of chocolate.

The chocolate will come in handy for raising my engergy levels after a bad sleep.

I'll tell you what I got under the tree when I've opened my under the tree gifts later on.

Most of my Christmas haul for this year just came through. :)

I got...

A red gala silk shirt that makes me look like Father Christmas.

Big black boots that also look like Father Christmas's.

A big back Father Christmas like belt embossed with red stars.

A dark blue denim shirt.

A map where you hang it on the wall and scrape off a gold foil covering of the countries that you have been to.

A regifted book to write in.

A 2012 diary.

A 2012 Taylor Swift calendar (not as good as the 2011 one but it has some good pics of her.)
A book called "Buried Alive" about the history of live burial.

A book called "Many Skies" about how things would be with different star systems.

A book called "Christmas-a candid history" about Christmas traditions

And my father asked me and my two brothers to shut their eyes. They did and I pulled my Father Christmas hat over my eyes to serve as a blindfold. When we could open our eyes and I could pull up my hat, we were each holding-a brand new blue plastic sledge. :D So if it snows in 2013 that will come in very handy.

There are two more presents coming up when my uncles and aunts get here that will give me a total legit reason to bump up my thread one last time.

I love the gifts that I have got.

And a book by Condalezza Rice.
