I've just finished watching The Corpse Bride, and it was very Tim Burtonesque. Funny how the world of the living is all drab and dreary while the underworld is full of colour -- and funny how Victor, when he finds himself in the first should want to go back to the latter in such a hurry. My nephew is going to be so annoyed when he hears I've seen it already...better not tell him, I suppose.

Our Christmas hamper this year contained a stainless steel fondue set, a recipe book, a bottle of olive oil and one of wine, 6 green mugs, a green cool bag (very uncool if you ask me), an egg timer, a pack of paper napkins and not 1 but 3 chunky green and brown candles...I wonder who put it together, and why. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find a use for some of these items, and maybe I can flog the rest on eBay.

It sure does look like it...Or, perhaps it's one of those unforeseen results of the cost cutting initiative; whoever was in charge of organising this year's Christmas hamper, probably wanted to see how far they could make the budget stretch.

But here I am, moaning about an end-of-year gift when there are those whose very jobs look to have gone up in smoke! I should be ashamed of of myself! I hope all those affected will see an end to their uncertainty soon.

Meanwhile, your Christmas card has arrived -- thanks!
