What was for Christmas in Cartoon Reality Land?
#1
WHAT I GOT OFF SANTA

http://conormchale.blogspot.com/2011_12_01_archive.html



Well Chumleys, it seems Pere Noel's generosity knew no bounds this year! He flushed himself down my chimney and left a rich deposit of luxury goods with nary a spot of soot to be seen. Then he managed to get back up said chimney and go on his merry way - which is quite the achievement considering ours has a u-bend fitted.

How does Swiety Mikolaj (as they call him in Poland) do it? I'll admit to being a Godless bead-mumbler

He is back and wrapped!

I suppose now would be an opportune moment to enquire what was the favourite (archaeology related) Christmas present they recieved. And does anyone have anything to add to the scurrilous rumours that Santa Claus is not real?

The Moleskine diary (as always).....the bobble hat (all the way from Iceland this year)....and the assorted birthday/Christmas best wishes from far flung friends and colleagues...I'm easy to please....Oh and not forgetting the joy of being able to pick up a used and discarded Kindle and/or Tablet on E-bay in a couple of weeks time for next to nowt. Its gonna happen...!!

I was presented with a copy of 'A History of the World in 100 Objects,' and because I fish off sea cliffs I was given a lifejacket - but due to employment prospects for this coming year I'm sure it will be pushed into service in an archaeological sense. Also I was given a pair of rubber gloves! A hint about the washing up methinks.

I can just see me on site with my lifejacket, rubber gloves and Neil MacGregor's latest missive, waving extravagantly at passing tourists . . . 'Yoohoo! Over here!!'

Hmmm mmm I love a bit of rubber glove.. er... :I

For me it was a .. damn... being married to a toolstore for archaeologists means that there is nothing I can be given that I don't already have ,sob> what I would have liked but did not get this year was a shersey ( come on mum-in-law) which combines the shirt with the jersey so turns you smart but casual in seconds without all the need for buttons and taste.

:face-huh:

I was however given a selection of bath products... perhaps that is archaeology related?

No, I don't think the bath products can be seen as archaeology related, not judging by the stink off some of my familiars. The shersey sounds like an interesting product! I suppose if you crossed an anorak with a cardigan you would end up with an anagram - figure that one out!

The Australians have crossed a string vest with a t-shirt and they call it a 'chesty'.....

How did they manage to cross those two? - what sort of foul genetic experiments have those dastardly antipodeans been up to? It sends a shiver down my spine thinking about some Aussie eugenicist coaxing a string vest and a t-shirt into unholy matrimony. This has to be stopped!

I think I need to lie down.

Too late! Think you just described an old Airtex shirt.....

The holes are a bit closer together than airtex...
