Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

I've got plans to only buy presents for people who will be at mum's for Christmas. With my current situation, I'll buy presents for two of siblings during January, as my sister has her birthday and my brother has plans to return to Australia.

how about the good old days of icicles? I remember picking them out of the tree. yech! ouch! but they looked so nice! I don't see them in stores much anymore. I guess that will save me the expense of getting them exticated from the cats via the vet. (they love string and WILL eat if much to my dismay!)
Now that you mention it, I haven't seen tinsel (a.k.a. icicles) around for a while. I really like it. Would go looking for some for this year, if it weren't for the kitty issue.
My family still uses tinsel but overall I don't think it's as common as it once was.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Yeah, I love tinsel, but my cat will try to eat it. Funny how he doesn't bother anything else on the tree...

Here's Eddie in his Santa hat:

^Yes, kitty looks decidedly unamused, in a "When you're asleep I'm going to crap in your shoes and change all your computer passwords" kind of way.

Something about the expression reminds me of Worf. This is not a merry cat.

Usually Eddie is the sweetest, happiest cat on the planet. But he didn't approve of this! I didn't make him wear it for long. Just long enough for the photo.

I expect he'll be even more peed off if he finds out you've posted it to the web!

My Christmas prep is coming along very slowly. Ie, I've done nothing!

I'm so glad I don't have to buy or make any presents for children this year!
