Like many others, I am damn excited about Christmas. Like many others, I have a Christmas Tree and decorations erected.

A new custom has been introduced in my family - as soon as my dad has bought the presents, he places them under the tree. Here's what I have so far: (feel free to post your own)

Present #1
----------------

Shaped like an action figure, but a larger base.

Prediction: Some type of gaming, film, wrestling or music action figure.

Present #2
----------------

Shaped like a DVD or PC Game. I shook it and it didn't rattle, which blatantly says that it's probably not a DVD. Also, it was quite heavy. I just borrowed Red Alert 2 from my cousins the other day and that was heavy also. My dad knows how much I want it.

Prediction: Red Alert 2.

Present #3
----------------

Snaped like a small cereal box. I shook it and I think that my sister put the present in a cereal box before wrapping it. She said ages ago what she would get me.

Prediction: Packet of fudges.

Present #4
----------------

Shaped like a video, but slightly smaller. It's to me and my brother, so it could be something to do with wrestling.

Prediction: ???

That's it for the moment. Of course, on Christmas Eve, the tree will be full with presents and when my mum comes around to drop off her presents, the tree will get massive. In other words, I'm being spoilt this year for reasons I'd rather not delve into - nothing bad I've done! (which basically gives it away) Again, feel free to post yours here!

Cheers.
Firebalt.

PS. Don't try and guess my pressies please - if you get them right, I'll be annoyed. Thanks.

Due to the inclement weather forecast for the Sedbergh region we have decided to cancel the ride & save it for a better day.
We are going to do a local ride setting off from Cuerden Valley incorporating the Great Hill and Darwen Tower area.
Meeting points are the bridge below the lake at 08.30 or at the Lancaster lane end at 08.35. if anyone wants to meet us on route give Steve or Simon a call, phone numbers are on the contact page.

think what you will at that

Actually, I'm paying 1150 of it. I'm not rich, and I tend to be insanely jealous of those who are. Music is just something I'm good at, and can make money from.

I'd rather not guess what gifts i've been bought. Chances of there being any games/dvd's/or music cd's and extremely slim.

Least if I wait until Christmas I won't have to spend the next month depressed!

I also found some cheap games (5) in the paper, so I've asked for them. I just hope he gets the right ones!

I remember when I got Boulder Mountain from MASK. The box was huge. I tied balloons to it and tried to make it fly, but it wouldn't. Boulder Mountain was good though.
