2010 ...

So, that's it for another year then.
The final David Tennant Doctor Who is on my tellybox.

Highlights of my family Christmas?
  1. Dinner table conversation about the quality of prostitutes in Hamburg.
  2. The whole family settling down on Christmas Day to watch The Hangover on DVD.
  3. Dickhead John buying my mother a book he wanted to read as a Christmas gift. He has started reading it already and has complained that it is boring and "there are too many words in it". What does he expect from Charles Dickens?
  4. Dickhead John giving my mother another gift - a pair of fingerless gloves. What. The. Fuck? He said he thought they would be a good present for someone who worked outside. My mother is a teacher.
  5. Sitting in stony silence watching Deadliest Catch or Ice Road Truckers with Dickhead John in the name of father/daughter bonding.

Signs you are having a true Northern Christmas?

None of the chairs at the dinner table match

Bob, the world's fattest cat, also menaced some ham on a plate.

Some things I am going to try and do in 2010:

  • Read more books
  • Arrive at work on time 3 days out of 5 [This will almost certainly never happen]
  • Watch less TV [with the exception of Glee]
  • Eat more fish
  • Go to at least one place I have never been before
  • Learn more about wine
  • Dispose of at least one third of my wardrobe
  • Bake more cakes
  • More pyjamas-as-leisurewear action
  • Incorporate at least one Malcolm Tucker quote into my everyday life

"Do you know, Malcolm? The best way to clear a paper jam?"

"I don't know. Kill a kid an hour until it sorts itself out?"

Your family sounds...interesting.

Nice new year's resolutions...I never even bother ;p

My family is a freakshow.

And none of those resolutions will last. Another one to add to the list should probably be do laundry more often so I am not left with a 5 year old tshirt and some tracksuit pants as both casual and formalwear options.

2 days into 2010 and I am already a loser!

Give yourself a chance on the resolutions, girl...I actually thought they were pretty good :)

Happy New Year, Jess...just gotta say it, "YOU.ROCK."

yea my family is pretty crazy too, we have some infamous exploits. I think every family is a little nuts in their own way.
