User avatarAnnual Christmas Roundup

Another Christmas has been and gone, so we’d better start wiping up the spillages and straightening the furniture.

Let’s see what Santa’s sack disgorged into my lap this year.

Comestibles

  • Little Italian biscuits with almonds in them
  • A selection of cheeses
  • Usual assortment of chocolates

Drinkables

  • Nice bottle of wine
  • Crate of 20 bottles of Budweiser (it’s so me)
  • Mug with a bear on it

Enjoyables

  • Theatre tickets
  • Room escape game tickets
  • Lego architecture set

Tea towels

  • Public Service Broadcasting tea towel
  • Mr Smith tea towel
  • David Bowie’s Big Boy Runaround tea towel

If anyone got more tea towels than me this year, I’d like to hear about it. But for me, the best Christmas present of all is my twelfth bean of 2015. It’s been a wall-to-wall bean-filled year for me on the Beans. Happy Christmas.

    You didn’t mention your Wang Chung cd. Surely that would come under ‘Enjoyables’?

  • The Wang Chung CD belongs under the subheading “No”.

    That’s a bit harsh. All they want to do is ensure that you and everybody has fun tonight. Godley and Crème swear by it.

  • Godléy and Crémé’s take on that song made my eyes hurt. Their opinion doesn’t sway me.

  • Elena....

    I’m glad I made it to “Enjoyables”.

  • You made it to “Drinkables” and “Tea towels” as well. I’d say you did well.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    It is quite unusual that you managed to acquire three different tea towels for the same Christmas. Clearly people are trying to tell you something.

  • Elena....

    I’m not sure why chocolate road signs didn’t make it to “Comestibles”. I thought that was my trump card.

  • You should get major kudos for that. THAT is so perfect a present it puts everything I gave him to shame. Well, apart from the Wang Chung cd that is.

  • Elena....

    Thank you most kindly!

    Credit where credit is due, Miss Wolfson.

    Just make sure he drinks the Budweiser in moderation. MODERATION, Christopher, moderation 😉

  • I don’t know why it wasn’t in either. You’d have to ask the panel of judges who decide these things. They’re peculiar types who usually answer questions with a cryptic riddle.

    Can I book them for an 11 year old’s birthday party next week? They sound a hoot.

  • Yeah. They do jokes but the punchlines never quite seem to work. My favourite goes like this:

    Why did the blackbird cross the road?
    Your maladjusted expectations will be the downfall of all your relationships.

    Hilarious.

    As long as they can also perform an accurate yet different but somewhat faithful version of ‘Leg Jazz’ by popular pop puckers the Papples then they’re hired.

  • I’ve never known the Papples to pucker pop. Are they preparing to kiss it?
