London was covered in snow today so we got down to the park, to play at being 5 years old again.
Except now, we can make bigger snowmen.

Tasteless Christmas Gifts (2009 Edition)

Each year, every family manages to collect a few bad taste christmas presents. Right?

Here are three of my favourites from this Xmas:

Lego Pirate Ship

After the Somalian pirate attacks in late 2008, it really ought to be time to villanise pirates, not celebrate their stereotype. But just look how cool it is; the captain even has a wooden leg and a hook for a hand!

Monopoly

Going bankrupt is no longer something to take lightheartedly. Playing Monopoly this Christmas was not as fun as usual - instead it brought home the very real possibility of losing your house to a man in a sportscar - or just going to jail for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It also makes you realise that £200 suddenly looks like a good wage again to lots of people.

The Manchurian Candidate

A vision of the 2008 election that features a black guy, a war hero and a feisty old white woman. Time to let the dust settle on this one for a bit, don’t you think?

(Thanks to mondayne for the Monopoly photo, and to Lego for being awesome.)

What we gobbled this Christmas

This Christmas, my family’s dinner menu included:

  • 25th December - Turkey Dinner
  • 26th December - Turkey Sandwiches
  • 27th December - Turkey Stock & Vegetable Soup
  • 28th December - Turkey Curry
  • 29th December - Turkey¬†Casserole
  • 30th December - Turkey Sushi
  • 31st December - Turkey and Sweetcorn Chinese Soup

It all seemed strangely reminiscent of this Fawlty Towers scene:

Also, here are some of my recent sushi creations:
