Play games on my fantastic new GX4000. I'll be getting Pang, Switchblade and Navy Seals. It's gonna be great and I feel sure that with all the fantastic games lined up the consoles future will be rosy.

It is 1990 still isn't it?

Probably spending a day in the cells again after I get caught trying to sneak down people's chimneys while dressed as Santa Claus! I tend to get a bit over excited at Christmas, no matter how many of those special pills they give me! :D

1. Watch some made-for-TV movie with the Muppets then wonder why.

2. Argue with family members about who ate all the green triangles from the Quality Street.

3. Set fire to the Christmas Pud prior to burning the roof of my mouth.

4. Go to bed.

I'll be waiting for Santa to empty his sack down my chimney.

I'm not sure exactly where I'll be spending Christmas because I'm in the process of moving house, which I hope will be all done by then, but either way I'll be spending it with my lovely boyfriend and hopefully get some of the wonderful pressies from inside Santa's sack :)

Having all the Christmas decorations start to pop up in the stores before Halloween this year has inspired our family to opt for a "non-commercial" Christmas. We're going to exchange hand-made gifts, and we've requested that friends and relatives who feel compelled to do something more give donations to the Humane Society or WWF. We'll do all the usual family visits and feasting, of course, but otherwise we'll be playing with the toys we have, rather than unwrapping new ones...

Nice sentiment, but I love the commerciality of Christmas.
