So, um, Adam is bad at setting deadlines. Enough said.

OK, so I like insects as I study them (my honours year will involve a lot fly stuff) and I have done a variety of courses where I learn about them in one way or another (I now can't help looking at various insects that I come across), but I don't like them in my house. At the moment two insects are really giving me the shits - ants and mosquitoes.

Adam finally posted something! This is good, not only because it's a good start and makes this site less boring, but also now I can stop writing about stupid and boring things (I won't). I think we can actually keep this site going this year and I might update the layout etc etc next week or so.

I don't really have much to say other than it's impossible to find a simple red bath robe (for a Tarantino themed costume) and steak is delicious.

With a new year comes a new schedule. It was clearly evident that 1 update per date was too much (and 1 a week too much for Adam). I think I will stick to a more reasonable 3 updates a week (at least) and also keep them unthemed (that was way too much Christmas talk for liking). As for Adam, I'm pretty sure he died in some kind of fireworks/"I bet I can do this with my eyes closed" accident (in his defence it did look pretty cool).

1 minute to go. I've got nothing. I just heard this band though, they're really good, haven't listened to a song I don't like yet.

Totally forgot about this update. So, um, boxing day. That was a second Christmas starting at 5 30am (as previously mentioned) and ending at 1am the next day. Lots of eating, drinking, presents, eating, carols, backyard cricket and eating. Sleep was very much appreciated that night.

Christmas has come and has brought with it a variety of presents and, more importantly, anecdotes (I was clutching at straws near the end there). While a lot of things happened in the past two days I think I can only put them into two posts. Then I'll think of things that don't relate to Christmas - whatever they are.

It's Christmas eve and I'm just about to head off to Newcastle. I might not have access to a computer until Monday, so I'll leave you with this.

Merry Christmas to my brilliant readers. You are all awesome and amazing, and I don't know what I'd do without you.

As Christmas is 2 days away, today was a good day to start Christmas shopping. I am really bad at present buying, so I enlisted the help of my younger sister. That didn't help too much. We worked out that we are as bad as each other.

Regardless, the day was relatively successful. There was a lot aimless wandering, but I don't think anyone can avoid that. We also saw a certain bearded man who promotes generosity and good will, as well as a santa of the non bearded and slightly aggressive pharmacy spruiker variety.

OK, I'm a bit late but I was out. Also I have horrible luck with buses (even those that aren't the dreaded 370). I think I must have angered a bus god (I knew killing those baby buses was a bad idea).

Before I start, I'd like to say that Adam is a jerk. Maybe it would be OK for him to not go with the Christmas theme if he actually made a comic, but he hasn't. So he needs to do themed posts, or I will continue to be mildly annoyed (can you handle that Adam?).

So, back to the post. This is the second installment in what I can probably pad out to 3 or 4 present based entries. This post is about hiding presents.
