The Good, The Bad, and The UGG (The Christmas Haul)

      Christmas was mostly good,  so we'll start with the good.  It was a very techy, gadgety Christmas this year.  I got an ipod  (probably one of the last people in the world because I didn't know I needed one).  I was always getting in trouble for clumsily carrying around the laptop to listen to Stash and Burn and I guess Jerry wanted to save me from dropping the laptop and smashing it.  Smart fella. 

     Actually, all of the gurls got ipods.  This was a common view on Christmas day.
     I also scored a super slim Coolpix.  
     And Mum gave me a ring,  she said I would wear it more than her.  I am not sure about that, but it is my birthstone, aquamarine.
     Now for the bad.  Will got the Ultimate Bumblebee from the Transformers movie.  It is big, VERY loud and it took me more than an hour to figure out how to turn it into a car (Bitchin Camaro!).  A butter knife helped, but the instructions didn't suggest one.  I needed two aspirins after the first transformation.  It did get a little faster with successive transformations, but I am working with Will on keeping it in one mode per day.  You can't tell by the photo, but Will loves it more than anything,  maybe even Mario!
      And now for the UGG.  The name speaks for itself.  What crazy Aussie designed this purse!  I get the boot thing, they're warm and cozy, but the purse is just loony.  Apparently,  I am out of the fashion loop.  Katherine loved this purse and promptly grabbed it from me  and ran off.  I'm glad she took it.  It is more her style.  I feel bad for the sheep.

Hey hun-looks like you made out! I don't quite get the purse fashion either, but then again, I think the boots they sell to match that kind of stuff are just as UGG! Welcome to mp3 land! Hope you enjoy the visit (and lime and violet podcasts)!
