Christmas Day: Progress So Far

My in-laws run Christmas rather differently to the Tinworth clan. At home, all the present opening is done by about 12pm at the latest – and that's a laggardly Christmas.

Here in Bristol? It's nearly 3pm and we've opened precisely one present so far. From my mother-in-law, I have received Poems from Guantanamo: The Detainees Speak. Yup, a book of poems from inmates at Guantanamo Bay. Not quite sure what to make of that…

Anyway, I must go make roast potatoes now.

    [this is good] Ah, yours too? I grew up with my mom cursing at right-wingers on tv, although I never did get any books about federal interrogation for the holidays. How funny. Well, it’s better than having boring parents, right?  😉
    Happy holidays!

    That’s true!

    And it’s interesting, given that she’s normally in love with all things American…
