Well it's that time of year when RAUK seems as quiet as our herpy friends, so a  pass the time thread (roll on the first rays of warm sunshine). Not sure what I want this year other than to have the family together, drink and eat too much and watch some old movies, so give me some ideas by letting us know what you want Santa to bring.

'good health' almost goes without saying, so a toast to our collective good health over and beyond this christmas

plus, of course, an odd herp book or two . . .

I'll drink to that (hic!) oops I've started a bit early on the Baileys 

So a couple of herp books added to my wish list, need more pressies though. (I can't wait 'till Baby Sue sees this thread, she'll be good for lots of pressie suggestions for an old person like me)

ItÆs really something I havenÆt given much thought to.

NOT!!!!

Baby Sue's Christmas List:

? Froggie wellies (my Auntie Chrissie is searching the internet for some size 7Æs but canÆt find any anywhere. )

? Chocolate, truffles, sweeties and gingerbread.

? Anything froggie. If you old folk donÆt like shopping with your feet this website is frickinÆ amazing www.frogstore.com/home.php?cat=354 ! (IÆve already tried the caramel crÞme chocolate frog and frog poop.)

? Froggie watch.

? Alarm clock. (I need a new one).

? IÆm thinking of replacing the wall hanging clock in the rodentsÆ room for something more fun and interesting. It needs to be large and must look right against the duck egg/cyan walls.

? More froggie earrings.

? Garden and pond ornaments. Something that floats in my pond would be ace.

? Letter opener.

? Albums: -

RobbieÆs æReality Killed The Video StarÆ

RhydianÆs æO FortunaÆ

AbbaÆs Greatest Hits

DuffyÆs album

The new Take That album

? Pyjamas.

? Matching scarf and glove set.

? Perhaps another winter hat (must cover large ears).

? Sunhat, not white or yellow, preferably khaki coloured.

? A small decorative mirror for within my cloakroom area under my stairs. Perfect size 8.5cm long (can't be bigger than 12cm long i.e. horizontally), any length vertically.

Note: - No liquorice, no coconut things, no peanut things, no cook books, preferably no books at all as IÆm not big on reading, nothing cat themed, no alcohol, no roadkill.

 

 

 

 


I wanted presents from lots of you. Snot fair that Ben Rigsby was the only one to send me Xmas & birthday presents.

no prezzies for me so it's all about the booze and food
(err..oh yes and the kids). bottle of champagne mid morning
then onto g&t. nice bottle of red with dinner then carry on
with the wine until the kids have gone to bed. then its
baileys and ice until i pass out on the sofa.

instead of bringing me a present, id like santa to get a GCN mitigation licence, park his sleigh up (leaving plenty of feed for Prancer, Rudolph et al) and then get off his fat bum, pick up a spade, mix some concrete and dig me a roofed pit with steps down one side of my pond. installing a glass pane against the water. like in a zoo aquarium. then i can watch all the newt activity on the pond floor better and live happily ever after.

ill give him a mince pie for his effort.

if i can find any low calorie ones.

Might be best just jumping inside the sleigh then and nicking the pressies and the reindeer. Santa wouldnÆt need the sleigh anyway, not if he didnÆt have no pressies left to give out.
