This is how Christmas went down at my place (needles to say, there was very little Christ involved, except when I hit my bacon-scab burn off the desk and cursed a bit):

A flurry of paper and then I fell asleep. Here's some stuff!

This is soap:

Yeah!!! I almost bought this for myself a few weeks ago but couldn't afford it! Luckily, my brother and his wife could.

A hippo pencil case named Buffalo!

Various blankets!

And now for the most hi-tech gift:

Webkinz hippo! Which I named Rizzo. You can play in an on-line community, like Neopets, which I was addicted to for a time, as was my brother. Technically, this toy is aimed at younger kids (younger kids than myself I mean), but as you've probably noticed, I have a thing for hippos. Which has been put on hold because my apartment is overflowing with them. Here's his adoption paper! Pff. Madonna makes this look so hard.

So I went on-line and decorated his room and bought him a Santa suit and a bed and he took a nap. So like me.

Here he is with the Hippo On A Halfshell painting I "bought" him.

The rest of the day consisted of eating pizza and ice cream. And my mom's famous Butterfly Bread, which will be documented in a future posting. As will the rest of the holidays, as I'm heading to Newfoundland and my hometown, Pasadena, for a wedding tomorrow. You'll just have to keep looking at these pics for a few days. Merry Fishmas!

Oh my god y'all, I done scorched my hand in the belly of the baking machine!

Ugh, I mean look at this gross skin in extreme close up! I singed my hand up real good!

Damn yo, I don't want to go to a wedding with scab hand!

And it does sting like a mo-fo.

Lazy Sunday

Religion finally makes sense to me

I'm at my parent's place!

It's snowing!

And the cat wants in!

The ongoing trials and tribulations of having donated ten buckaroonies to the SPCA! I got more crap today! But awesome crap! If you thought the personalized photo album and teddy bear could not be topped, you were wrong! In my opinion. Although, that bear is pretty shit hot. But check this:

That's right! My holiday gift box is here!


- Christmas cards and envelopes


- Gift wrap and gift tags

- Ribbons and bows


- Your CSPCA pen

Check (although I don't know what makes it a CSPCA pen per se):

So great! I am a total sucker for stationary products, especially ones that come in boxes. But isn't this the kind of thing that you would buy for ten dollars, say, in a mall, at an unsteady Lions Club table that's been set up, as a way to make a donation but still get something out of it, other than the feeling of goodwill, which only lasts until you find a DVD you wanted and you would have bought if you hadn't given away that ten dollars? As opposed to sending to someone who already gave you ten dollars and has gotten a boat load of other crap from you but still didn't give you any more money?

Although, at least they are coming down to my level. Usually when they send me forms, it's for 15 dollars, 25 dollars, 50 dollars and upwards. At least they are starting to be a bit more realistic:

And truth be told, I actually gave them another ten dollars a few weeks ago, what with it being a year since I donated, but I must point out, that cheque has not yet been cashed, and therefore this holiday fun time box was sent pre-second donation. I like to look at this donation as a ten dollar fee towards having something to blog about.

Now, who will get this delightful wrapping? It could be an extra bonus for my secret santa recipient!!

Human Hair!!


What is the deal with hair being left out in the open like this? I find it disturbing.
