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.

Oh you know, the kind of grocery/carrier bag that's lined with aluminium foil to keep your ice cream or frozen meat cool while you try and find a place for it in the fridge. I have no idea what it may be called in reality, but I've always just referred to them as freezer bags and ben readily understood by M & S personnel ;-)!
