Merry Christmas! Ho ho ho!

It's Christmas again, and I'm sitting down to a delicious Chrismas meal!

This Christmas I'll be spending time with myself, followed by later being on my own. I was in America until the 23rd and didn't get a chance to get to the store until Christmas Eve, by which time everything was closed. Our cupboards and fridge are bare, but I managed to find, hidden amongst this summer's camping supplies, my salvation!

It's not gourmet, but it'll keep me from starving until the stores open up on Tuesday.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Thank goodness for MREs? So sorry. Any Chinese restaurants open in Edinburg?

We're going for Japanese tonight!!! Tatami! Yay! (turns out that if we'd tried to go to Tatami last night for my birthday that was when they were doing their Christmas dinner and it would have been really expensive!)

I'm going to see if any are open, although the stuff that looks like canned catfood isn't too bad, if you salt it a little.

I thought the fuschia and green foil wrappers looked festive, too! Bonus!

Enjoy your Japanese!

Oh no, puika! Do we really have nothing else for you to eat in the flat? I'm so sorry. I agree with your family, though: both the "eeewww" factor and to go for Chinese! I definitely do not recommend the Latvian diet...

And just what is the Latvian diet? You have peeked (peaked?) my interest.

I woke up this morning and said to myself, 'picqued!'. I think it must be the Gemzar. They say there are cognitive side-effects.

Oh sure, after 54 years of being a bad speller you now have something to blame it on! Hahaha!

And about time, too!

I just want t0 say that not everybody in Scotland has forgotten that Nathan exists over the holidays. In Fact my bfamilly have already beaten him over the head for not letting us kn0ow that he was going to be pathetic and alone over Xmas. As soon as my parenyts found out that he had not eaten properly on the day they sent me with a care package (including food). The point is that we want you to know that Nathan has friends here who will not sehim alone or unhappy. He is in fact a good guy and whats more he amuses us so we plan on keeping him around for a while. Whats more I plan on taking a trip to see all of you guys next year to prove that he has friends here who cae about him as much as non-familly members can. I know that you don't know me but I ask you to trust me when I say that Nathan has people here who care about him so don't worry all is good. By the way...

The Latvian diet consists of coffee or tea and cigarettes. At least that's what Latvian women consider a successful diet; this I wouldn't recommend to any sane person, including Nathan. Does he like fruitcake, I wonder?

You know, in the picture is included "drinking chocolate mix". As opposed to . . . the snorting chocolate mix? Just wondering why they felt they had to specify "drinking".

Keith - were you the one I chatted with for a while when Nathan and I were back in the States at our parents' house?

I like Christmas Pudding, which is very similar to fruitcake! In fact, a good fruitcake is delicious, just like real mincemeat. Ingrida, I'm flattered that you'd consider me a sane person! That's so sweet!

Mara, you had me laughing my breakfast haggis through my nose with the idea of snorting chocolate!

I think they call it drinking chocolate to contrast it with eating chocolate, which is just called "chocolate."

By the way, Keith is really sexy

Now, see, that was snorting haggis!! Well, there you go, I guess that's why they had to clarify. :-)

If Keith is really sexy, why hasn't he included himself in the Dornbrook Family Readers on Frappr, eh?

That's a good point! He should be putting himself on Frappr...his cousin did. Antony lived with Keith until yesterday, and Antony is on there.

I had no idea that my diet had a name and state endorsement. By the way, how do the M.O.D. rations compare to MREs? Remember omelet with Ham?

I didn't have omelet with ham, but I did have tuna casserole - and it was absolutely wretched. I did enjoy the applesauce, though. I usually ended up trading my main dish (the spaghtetti was pretty gross, too) for applesauce and . . . graham crackers? Yeah, fortunately I was only on the MRE diet for one weekend training. Hey, no bottle of Tabasco sauce?

Omelet with ham was horrible, the bottom of the barrel.

On the other hand, ham slice was always underrated. What a great MRE. Absolutely fantastic. One of the best. It came with potatoes au gratin and M&Ms and Pound Cake.

I usually tried to get ham slice. Sometimes, I'd convince people to trade their entire ham slice MRE, unopened, for a potatoes au gratin and some peanut butter and crackers, which is all the more ironic because the omelet with ham contains potatoes au gratin and peanut butter and crackers.

MRE trading is one of my fondest memories of the Marine Corps, which says a good deal about me and a fair bit about the Marine Corps.

The beans and franks in the MOD rations are top notch, much better than our beans and franks. The pork casserole was terrible; I'd take a ham slice over pork casserole, or even our tuna casserole instead of their pork casserole.

The fruit crackers were tasty, the catfood was delicious, the drinking chocolate was thin and runny, the soup mix was rich and thick and warming, the chocolate bars were waxy and reminded me of Hershey's.

No Tabasco, unfortunately.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

awesome I have an older model and it worked so well for me and I haven't had the instructions for a few years now

Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your website and in accession capital to assert that I get in fact enjoyed account your blog posts. Anyway I will be subscribing to your augment and even I achievement you access consistently quickly.

Very sad if there isn't price remark here. Don't change into spammers.

It's something a laugh to see your posts.

God! i was just talking to my dad about gay pride in birmimgham and my mum gave me the dirtiest look ever!

I’m not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for excellent info I was looking for this info for my mission.

Just desire to say your article is as astonishing. The clearness in your post is just nice and i can assume you're an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.

Thank you for due to this spectacular post. i'm invariably close to to the present up out for content material material and was lucky to uncover you on yahoo i am going to absolutely be back nonetheless once more againg to determine what other spectacular content material materials you post.

Neat blog.. I enjoyed reading and I'll be back later..

I appreciate the effort that you have set in, in this page. Great, also I desire to quote a few lines from this post in my site, I will give a backlink to this post. Again.. it is really a great work. Thanks

Shouldn't we see this more in other sites if this were the case? I almost never hear of this on the mainstream media. Either this article is at the state of the art, or you have gone too far in your article.

Despite the polished article, I am still not moved. I think we still need even more well-reasoned posts.

Enjoyed studying this, very good stuff, thanks .

Just wanna input on few general things, The website design is perfect, the written content is real superb : D.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Super artykuł.Dobra robota.

Designer inspired – There are hundreds of products in the same styles that boast the coveted Wholesale Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags authentic, but at a much lower cost.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

Good site! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Interesting point of view.Thanks for the post. - Why are our days numbered and not, say, lettered? - Woody Allen Born 1935
