When it comes to Christmas, I'm not exactly ba-humbug, but I'm not trailing tinsel either. I have a confession to make. I'm in it for the gifts. I am, in fact, a present whore. It's not like I'm proud or anything, but it is the truth. So I have to buy a few to get a few, that’s okay. For that sweet, sweet feeling of tearing through paper and ribbon to get to the treasure waiting within I'd do *almost* anything. (And between you and me, people that stop to read the card? They're doing it wrong.)
There’s nothing like getting gifts. Except for cake maybe...cake is pretty good. Coconut is my favourite. In Australia Christmas is smack bam in the middle of Summer so steamed puddings aren't such a good idea. But a lovely lush coconut cake is spot on. We're more likely to have cold chicken, seafood and salads with lashings of icy drinks on the go than a big hot roast dinner. My favourite icy drink is half a tub of strawberry sorbet blended with a sweet champagne. Just the thing to beat the heat and it also aids in dealing with the extended family. Spending the day in the pool is also a good idea. I like to have Die Hard blaring in the background if possible. Best Christmas movie ever. Bruce Willis battling it out against those crazy European bad guys. Awesome. So that's my version of Christmas Down Under.
But back to my capitalistic tendencies. Presents. I want them. Here's my wish list so far...
|'Be Still my Heart' t-shirt from Se7en Deadly. What I especially love, is that they come in sizes for curvy girls too. Be sure to check out their 'Embalming Fluid' and 'Bonnie and Clyde' designs also.|
|Crystal Head Vodka. Seriously. How cool is this?|
|Zombie Magnetic Poetry Kit from ThinkGeek. The kids will love it.|

Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.
