I am officially all set for crimbo! Everyone’s presents are covered in festive wrappings and ready to be given out! Unfortunately they look like they’ve been done by a 5-year-old. It’s times like this when i get extremely jealous if my boyfriend who can wrap presents of any shape and size in such a professional way! Completely unfair! I’m thinking of bribing him to wrap all mine next year!
Me and dad decorated the Christmas tree tonight! It’s totally tacky and we love it! It has all the decorations that dad’s family used to use when they were little on it, and awful coloured lights! Trendy it most certainly isn’t, but it wouldn’t be our Christmas tree if it was any other way! :)
Had my first mince pie of the year tonight too! With Christmas presents brought and cards all written, i’m starting to get a bit excited now!
….just got to get these uni assignments out the way first *grumbles*
Alton Towers have released the name and theme of their new secret weapon roller coaster for 2010!
Th13teen is based on the discovery of an unearthed ancient burial site in an area of unexplored woodland called The Dark Forest. It’s been developed by the world’s leading coaster and thrill consultants, who have worked together to combine the ‘ultimate elements of physical and psychological fear’, creating what experts are calling a ‘psychoaster’. …
Question: How much do i want Serena van der Woodsen’s hair?
Answer: a LOT.
I realise it’s professionally styled, and probably takes hours to do, but i <3 it to death! Not to mention the fact that she’s absolutely gorgeous too *secretly hates her*
After watching far too many American dramas separately, and one of us always being behind on episodes (usually me), my box set fiend of a friend and i have started watching Gossip Girl together! Every Thursday we sit down with our good coffee and watch an episode…which usually turns into three, and muse about how we should really hate Chuck, whether Dan is taking over the oc’s Cohen on the adorable scale, and just how much Nathan really looks like Zac Efron.
Just finished my Christmas shopping for this year, apart from a bottle of wine and some earrings, i think i’m all set. Thank goodness for the internet at this time of year! I much prefer doing the bulk of my present shopping sat down with a nice warm cup of tea instead of fighting through a crowded shopping centre and standing in ridiculously long queues…
So i’ve just been to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ in 3D with my bf and the ginger one, and i can honestly say i am traumatised beyond all reasonable belief.
Now, after only ever seeing ‘A Muppet’s Christmas Carol’ as a child, i went into the cinema with a positive feeling about what i was about to watch, only to have that positive feeling stripped away by a CGI ghost with a corroding face :| if that wasn’t horrific enough, the ghost of Christmas present (who i remember to be a jolly red-headed giant) wasted away in front of my eyes and turned to ashes, only to be replaced by the grim reaper who jumped out of the screen and made the small child next to us cry.
Obviously the director has stuck to the original storyline of Mr Dickens’s book, but did it really have to be so gruesome?! Even the sultry sounds of Jim Carey’s magical voice couldn’t relax me in this one. The people who rated this film a PG ought to be shot.
Bring back Kermit the frog and the other muppets, they know how to tell a real Christmas carol.
Days like today make me wonder how many funerals the average 21-year-old goes to in one year. I don’t suppose it ever gets any easier, no matter how many you go to, but it does start you thinking about your own mortality and how you’d want your funeral to be…
