    White rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit— Thumper, under Blossom’s tail

    Was this thread made already? Anyway happy December everyone! Yesterday when I went to bed Blossom was sitting up but had her eyes closed and I get the feeling that the silly bun went to sleep like that! XD In another note December 31st is Demon’s gotcha day and in one final news I dyed my hair orange on purpose.

    LET IT SNOW~

    White rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit!

    December is a busy month – my partner’s birthday in a few days, his sister’s birthday just before Xmas, my Mum’s birthday 2 days after Xmas and then my niece’s birthday Dec 31st.

    I’ve just ordered 2 birthday cards for Adrian (my partner) from MoonPig. One from me and one from the bunnies ?

    Ugh… I am not in the Christmas mood this year. I hate winter.

    First day of a new month… and it’s like my new bun (who I got on Wednesday) is a new bun! She’s been pretty scared of me, doesn’t do much when I’m around but today she’s running around in my presence and even let me pet her, which I’m pretty excited about. She’s also been making a buzzing sound which I haven’t decided if its hormonal or happiness…

    She probably decided you’re safe, since she lived to see another day

    My chrimbo prezzies are waiting to be wrapped and my cards are mailed (although with our national postal system on strike for weeks now, who knows if they’ll survive their respective trips??)

    Happy human-bunny bonding Caillou!

    Breintje greeted me with a binky yesterday ^_^ I walked into the living room and he ran towards me, did a high-speed binky and put his chin on the floor. I’ve never felt more appreciated ^_^

    @Q8: That’s such a great feeling to have everything prepared for the holidays! Takes so much stress out of it.
    Our Sinterklaas preparations have to be done last minute, because everybody was late with their wishlists. Bas and I drew the lot of one of his nieces and her BF, and we don’t know them that well at all. Yikes! We still have no idea what their “surprise” is going to look like, and I have no material for their poem yet. Time to ask family members for some fresh dirt

    For the people who have no idea what this is about: for Sinterklaas (5/6th of December) people draw lots and make a wishlist. You make a poem and a surprise for the person whose lot you drew. A surprise has gifts hidden inside of it, and has a personal theme (your hobbies, favourite sport, some silly stuff that happened to you this year). One year I had mice and I fled to my BF’s place until they were removed. For Sinterklaas I got a huge cardboard mouse which I had to decapitate to get to my presents. Therapeutic ^_^

    I’m pretty sure I’m the only person that doesn’t enjoy December. I think the message of “spend your money to show your loved ones you ACTUALLY care” is shoved down our throats. I’m normally given out to for being so negative lol. Just hoping for some snow! (Unlikely in Ireland )

    Nope, you’re not! I don’t like December either, and yes, I agree some snow would improve it, but we’re unlikely to get any either


    #1887162

    @Boo and GJ: yes, people turning it into spending show-off stinks. That takes the whole spirit out of it I have a very small budget and all the affordable items on Bas’ wishlist were claimed by his family, so I’ll have to get creative to get him something nice.

    I’m with you guys. I am not a December fan. Like Sarah’s mom, I’m 2 days after Christmas. Everyone tells me how wonderful it must be… it’s not. No, you don’t get extra presents, you get less sometimes none on either day. No restaurants are open, so any hope of something other than Chinese food is a bust. At almost 27, I’m used to it by now. I’d much rather stay at home with the John and the boys and play some Zelda or Smash bros or watch a good Star Trek.

    Living in New England, like most of us, I am not a fan of the snow and the cold. I’d prefer to be in South Carolina where it never gets colder than 50 and I never have to experience the ungodly amounts of ice, slush, mud, and snow.

    This all being said, John loves Christmas with all his heart and he loves my birthday. So I put on a smile and tell him how much I also love this time of year. He needs some happiness with his Tourettes, so I really try not to ruin the season for him.

    All I want for Christmas this year are some powerlifting shoes so I can really focus on improving my squats to get a better Wilks score. Odds of qualifying for nationals are slim because there’s so many athletes in my weight class, but we can try xD

    What’s wrong with you guys? I hate December BECAUSE of the snow. I hate winter period. I get so depressed this time of year, it’s awful. And winter came way early this year. We had snow in October and then more in November. More just this last weekend and I’m already wanting to cry. I’m over winter. Just over it. I want it to be spring. I can only hope that spring will come when it’s supposed to. Last year, it was the spring that would never come. It snowed 3 weekends in a row in April!

    As for Christmas, I like Christmas itself. But it has sort of been ruined for me as an adult. I love the buy things for people and I put a lot of thought into gifts. But no one in my family or my husband’s family is interested in exchanging gifts. :\

    Bah humbug!

    I don’t mind snow as long as it doesn’t come with arctic temps. And I LOVE Sinterklaas and solstice night. I love the lights and the colours. And I make presents or just give a card or a bespoke poem or a print of one of my photos. And the food! Did I mention the food? Romanian Christmas food is INSANE!

    I think that if more people clamoured for it, we could take Christmas back from the marketers.

    After 1.5 years…two friends of mine fi-nal-ly got together! Oh man, I had to keep a straight face and pretend I knew nothing every time one of them came to visit me. She’d talk about him while 2 days before he had been here talking about her. Me to myself: “Shuddup, shuddup, don’t interfere! Especially not if someone is already taken.” When he was planning to break up with his GF my first thought was: so, how long is it going to take until… But when he became single she had just started dating someone, so the timing was off the whole time.

    She had to laugh when I said “finally I don’t have to keep a straight face” and when I mentioned how endearing the whole process was. It was just a case of unfortunate timing, but they have been a likely match for a long time. Nice to see that they got together. Finally… ^_^

    hahaha I love stories like this. It’s like some movie love stories where people are like “that doesn’t happen in real life”.

    Ugh. Well, we are having 2nd day of 38C (100F) temps so anyone pining for the warmer weather can have it!

    I hate it. That said, I don’t really know what living in temps that bring snow is like.

    I generally have liked the feel of Christmas in the past. I absolutely do not like the commercialism, however. My family (siblings) keep things very reasonable as we only buy a gift for one person (like, secret santa) around value of $50. It would just be too much to buy for everyone. They’re already getting gifts for their own families. I think we will eventually do away with the secret santa thing or just doing it for the kids. We enjoy getting together for a meal more.

    This year will be bittersweet, our 1st without Mum. We are very much needing to be together though.
    The cake and pudding are still not made (should really have been done in Nov). I put them together the past 2 years, with help of nieces and nephew and Mum overseeing things. All the little tips and alterations she made have comepletely gone out of my head.

    @a&B, my best friend and also my niece both were Christmas Day babies. My friend agrees, its not wonderful. My niece will be turning 4 but my sister tries to separate out her birthday so she has her own special day. She’s still young, so it works.

    @a&B & Q8: indeed, it sounds a lot like “Love, actually”! Also: they managed to pick Sinterklaas Parcels Eve so it’s raining jokes about gifts and surprises They’ll never live that one down. Their story could have been one of the plots in “Love is all”, the Sinterklaas rom-com flick. It felt a lot like being the narrator ^_^

    @JG: I totally agree, small presents are fun but it’s more important to have quality time in good company. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas. Thank her for raising your family, and I hope that her favourite traditions will be remembered.

    It happened again today: Breintje wants brushies too when I’m brushing my hair. Normally I brush my hair in the bathroom, but it’s freezing in there.

    As soon as I started to brush my hair Breintje hopped close to me, sniffed my hand and the brush and presented his head. It’s so cute when rabbits want to mix scents (as long as they don’t pee!). I often find him licking things which carries our scents, like my wireless headphones and the pillows on the couch. We’re honorary rabbits and proud ^_^
