I didn't get anything for christmas. lol
Well.. You just got a random hug. :)
We have a spider on our tree, made out of gold and crystal beads... with a tinsel "web." The story that came with it tells of the spiders from this family's attic that came down after they decorated the tree, and crawled all over it to look at the beautiful lights and ornaments. They were sad when they saw how dusty and spiderwebby they had made the tree, and the good fairy of christmas or something like that took pity on them and turned their webs to gold and silver, and that's where tinsel came from.
We don't use tinsel, we think its kinda silly and wasteful, but we have a little cluster with our christmas spider. =)
That is SO cool!! I love that story! :)
sniffle? Did you say sniffle? Linda looked up when she heard me sniff, so I moved over to her to show her this. Hanky-time.
It's enough to make me wish I acquired a taste for coffee, though other drinks serve as well.
My favorite gifts this year?
A video from my sister, though under-pining heart-wrenching.
Much musing from LJ friends.
Lap-stretch by cat Tina, with accompanying wrist licks.
Surviving the day.
I sniffle a lot. ;)
And cool! :)
That sounds so... goth? Nightmare Before Christmassy? My goodness... A spider and web on a Christmas tree would send my arachnophobic friends into spasms of horror!
You like Jeopardy, too? Oh I love that game!
lol! Yeah, I thought about not posting it because I know a number of my journallers are really freaked out by spiders. I figured since it was artificial it wouldn't freak anyone out.
And oh yes! It rocks. =)
I'm getting more gifts later, but probably the best gift I got so far was this new laptop. My third laptop this month. Hope the third time's the charm!
LOL! 3 laptops in one month!? What are you doing to them!? Haha!!
Aww, I like that commercial.
My favorite gift.. honestly?
My mom got me a kickass push-up bra. XD
Un-honestly, I got a gig for my laptop because it's sloooow.
And by the by, Jeopardy = <3
Woot! Big boobs and smart computers. Always good. ;)
And I'm so frustrated with the Jeopardy game I could scream right now. I can't get the the damn thing to work and I'm like homicidal.
This definitely makes me sniffle.
I think the best present I got this year was that I'm finally spending it with my family. It's been awhile, but they're here and that's nice. :)
I gotta tell ya, i'm crazyjealous about that jepordy game. :)
You wouldn't be if you were trying to get the piece of shit to work. *growls*
christmas to me is just spending time iwth my family.
we don't even really do presents, we just spend the day together. board games. movies. buffet... :)
although my best christmas gift was seeing my exboyfreind who is down for the holidays. we're going to go to the bodies exhibit tomorrow.
i tell everyone starting after halloween that i don't want anything for christmas or my bday- so don't do it or it will be donated. i don't need anymore stuff. :P
Randompoting. :) Nice to meet you!
I got a new bonsai tree and a book on bonsai trees along with it. They're slowly becoming a hobby of mine, although it's difficult since I'm living in a college dorm and most don't like to grow indoors. I have a feeling one day I'll have a backyard littered with bonsai trees...
That's totally awesome!!!
You can never go wrong with one of those. ;)
