Now don't get me wrong it's really not about the presents, I had a great Christmas really enjoying the company of my family and friends and grinning with total smugness when a couple of present that I had given were quite obviously very well received.
That's what it's all about for me, being thankful for what you have, meaning great friends and family - not the presents, good food on the table and a warm and cozy place to be. I know it sounds like a Cliché but I really do appreciate these things.
Having said that I was also given a few things that were very well received indeed. These included The Taint, Haggopian and The Ghost Quartet - yay!
Other things of note that I also recieved included The Necronomicon - a collection of Lovecraft, a book on motor racing, couple of Batman graphic novels, Rob Zombie box collection, Set of pans (may sound ridiculous but I was really quite excited about the pans!) and a Nintendo DS with Mario and Guitar Heros - yay!
So did anyone else receive any Lumley for Christmas? Was there anything in particular that made you really smile?

I got indigestion...!
The pressie that made me smile most (and literally laugh out loud) was a book called Pets with Tourettes... I opened it at random and it was just so damned funny!

Hee hee hee, indigestions is awful. I was very fortunate in that I didn't get any ill effects all through Christmas and the New Year. I ate and drank everything and just felt really satisfied and full! I didn't even get the dreaded Christmas cold that everyone else I know had.
Of course this means that next year I'll get everything and be really ill!Where's the Derby Dumpling?!
