I asked for PaRappa the Rapper on PS1.
have slipped your mum a naughty little request for a Christmas "special".
and the board game Machi Koro.
If I don't ask for stuff then they'll go buy me something I'll never use, so I may as well let them know...
could only find it on import at vast expense before like jan 5th. is this just amazon dicking me about?
for around £24. Might have sold out though, there was a fair amount of buzz around it...
I said no in the knowledge that she'll buy worse stuff than we already have but I could tell that she was going to do it anyway
It's all in the mind.
I send her the link, she buys and wraps. Good system
"I'm not asking what you want, because you always have an answer"
It arrived at our flat in November.
He's not good at christmas, bless 'im.
And some boots.
I asked for neither but my Mother is incapable of keeping surprises.
Mink are barely real animals, though.
So that was a massive waste of fun.
No of course not real fur.
OHHHH Guess what Fidel! I am revegetarianing in January. (not forever)
blates too lazy/greedy though.
just don't go vegan, you'll waste to nothing like C did.
to make up for all the animals chintzo is slaughtering
I love it.
but my girlfriends parents upgraded us to a Dyson as Christmas present (but we had still pay as much as we would have paid for a Henry).
They'll probably be bright pink with curled toes and bells on or something
Hoping for dosh, want to buy a rocking chair with it.
that's the kind of thing parents like to buy, isn't it?
I do not wear a watch.
if I can not leave it in a bar for a year I'll consider getting a proper one.
(this is quite literally never going to happen)
I don't constantly lose accessories so much as immediately repel them.
awful chat up line about not needing to know the time/can miss your last bus/time flying etc
ME: "TIME FLIES"
[throws watch across crowded pub and looks expectant]
and insists and that was all that came to mind.
don't know what this means
need to buy loads of new clothes as I'm too fat for almost all my current wardrobe
but we usually just get £50 in a card and a stocking full of fruit but my mam's made a big thing about being more poor than last year and getting us each a 'small token' instead so i've asked for a pill box
(40 years for the NHS lump sum) but I hope she keeps it for herself. I'm poor at the minute but both my sisters are minted and I could get rich if I wanted. Just want my mum to treat herself for once.
does anyone know if it's worth getting? I had the gamecube game which came free with the wind waker, but I gave it to a friend who I don't see much and'll probably never see it again.
It's nearly older that you are!
Just because it's old it doesn't mean these things just disappear.
this reminds me of when my old boss asked me how I could possibly know the song 'Ghost Town' by The Specials as it 'came out before I was born'.
He is 7 years older than me and would have been like 1 when it came out. What a berk.
just always assumed it was too much of a cult thing for younger generations than mine to really be aware of.
thanks, yeah I get what you mean. looking forward to it!
colchester vs. gillingham boxing day ticket
possibly an NFL wembley ticket for next year
those joseph joseph bowl/sealable storage things
Although I am over 30, I still used to get one "big thing" from them that I need. A camera one year for example, or going back a few years they splashed out on a laptop. Basically something that had broken that year that I needed replacing. I wish I had asked for a hoover but my Mother had in mind that I need some smart work shoes after she saw the state of mine, so I got some of those.

Lo-Pan - Hey dad, see for christmas, can you stop haranguing me about work for a few days
Lo-Pan Snr - Depends
Lo-Pan - cheers da
or money for that matter.
They live too far away.
Thanks family. Thanks a bunch.
Dad probably won't even call.
They won't tell me what it is
I overheard my wife talking to my mum who asked I would like the new inbetweeners film. The wife said yes. It's very sweet that my mum thinks I might want it
. But I don't really, as a) I don't really watch dvd's and b) it'll be on channel/film/E 4 every other week come the summer. She'll spend ten quid on it and it'll be four or five quid by boxing day.
like, one present. worth £20 at most. like i do for her. because we're both adults.
almost sure she forgot this by january 5th, because i told her this after christmas 2012 and it didn't make the blindest bit of difference last year.
it's sweet and i really don't want to come across as ungrateful. but i don't she actually enjoys buying me presents. she always tells me i'm 'difficult' to buy for. i'm not; i talk incessantly about things i like, it's just that nobody listens or remembers. what she means is that i won't tell her what to buy me, because it's pretty crass, and because i genuinely like getting surprise presents.
here's to another year!
