How was your fab holly-day?
I got a pretty good haul of presents this year. Hehe. I got 4 of the things on my Blog Christmas Wish List…which included 2 new plastic sturdy portfolios, peppermint extract, knee high patent pleather boots, and 2 (!) warm jackets. My mummy got me the Stella McCartney parfum, which was totally unexpected, and these awesome “lava lamp” starry night lights. The best of all was that she ordered EVERYTHING that was on my art supply wish list, but was way WAY way too far off my budget.
Anywho, that’s not what I was really looking forward to…I was waiting for the people’s reactions to my food.
Yes, many “oooo’s” and “ahhhhh’s.” It made me feel all happy inside like a child getting a puppy. I was kind of last minute with doing everything, so I wasn’t able to make all the nummy food I wanted to make. I made mashed potatoes with Isa’s punk rock gravy, chocolate raspberry cake, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate raspberry puff cookies, Isa’s cranberry-orange-nut loaf, and cranberry oat bran muffins.
My mum made this amazing pasta salad with sun-dried tomatoes, Italian sausage tofurkey, and olives. She also made her infamous cranberry sauce and a cranberry apple crisp (and many other non-vegan foods). My dad made a whole bunch of barbecue (veggies included)…I found that extremely abnormal. BBQ at Christmas Eve dinner? Strange.
In all the party was superb.
I finished my friends’ presents…
My mum’s friend gave this stellar present, The Puppini Sisters CD! I was so stoked! It has great pinup girl pictures inside the cover. There’s interesting covers of Blondie’s Heart of Glass and The Smith’s Panic. Go check it out.
My cousin’s girlfriend got him this AMAZING jacket. This design is just…I can’t even think of a word for it. There’s drawings of guns in the pockets, a butcher knife for a zipper, and a fantastic drawing on the back. I just couldn’t get over it. Maybe I can find myself a small enough version for myself…like a men’s extra small.
