Yo Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!

December has snuck up on me even though the local shops have had Christmas trees on display since early November. Having lived for some years on the other side of the planet and experienced many a Winter Christmas, it makes me giggle that New Zealand is so traditional when it comes to the Festive Season. Santa all wrapped up in his winter red and white outfit, stockings hung up next to a roaring fire, snow and mistletoe are images we Kiwis embrace even though our Christmas takes place in summer.

I'm not complaining, though! I far prefer having Christmas Day get-togethers outside around the barbecue rather than stuck indoors. In fact, this year we are having a Pot Luck Christmas in a relative's garden (which will be very exciting if we all bring desserts!).

Christmas in game is an exciting time too! You should soon be seeing white-named 'Lucky' pirates wandering around accepting challenges. Look out for me popping in as Luckypavo. I'm a particularly lucky pirate to encounter as I'm terrible at both sword-fighting and rumble, the two challenges I'll accept this year. You should have a very good chance at winning a Lucky prize!

office

I've been poked a couple of times recently about a long promised picture of my 'office'. I expressed jealousy at Hephaestus' office space as my office is in a broom closet (I feel great empathy with Harry Potter and his room under the stairs). So, here it is complete with my treasured Hera doll made by Liliene of Midnight and my not so treasured (anymore, see below) Cronus and Hera mug from Zazzle

Finally, it has come to my attention that Cronus has been spreading nasty rumours about me. Again. I should like to point out that while I have decorated his ship on a couple of occasions, he takes screen shots and stores them up before writing about them. There were months (months!) between the times I decorated those ships! However, it is my nature to be jealous and if he goes around naming familiars in such a manner as he has on Hunter, I'll continue to be very cross indeed! (Expect coal for Christmas, Cronus. Lots of it!)

Point of fact: I didn't name that familiar on Hunter. It just appeared like that one day, *eyes Gaea*. I can't help if if all the ladies are throwing themselves at poor Sickle.

*giggles* I was wondering when people would spot my toys. You should also note my Dr Who poster to the left. My office is like the TARDIS in reverse.

his words and discount soccer cleats were subjected to instant analysis and querulous criticism. The audience of 70 million Americans gathered to hear white soccer shoes was inherited by a small band of network commentators and self-appointed analysts, the majority of whom expressed in one way or another their hostility to what nike mercurial victory had to say. It was obvious that their minds were made up in advance. Those who recall the fumbling and groping that followed President Johnson’s dramatic disclosure of his intention not to seek adidas f50 adizeros have seen these men in a genuine state of nonpreparedness. http://www.soccershoesclearance.com/ LJP
