Q: Christmas box just arrived from home. Scored big time! Can you beat this?

4 disc set of Fleetwood Mac.  Can any of you suckers out there beat that?  Doubt it.

Plus a book written by HG Nelson.  Can you even beat that?  Doubt it.

And some vegemite, curry and anchovies.  Beat that?  No, you can't.

And a few packets of Tim Tams, Twisties (green, of course) and some licorice.  Har!!   Anybody??  No....I didn't think so.

Oh, and a little water pistol inside my bonbon...Oh yeah, it's already had a workout in class this arvy.  

So, I'm the winner!

But, please, try not to get the envy...what did you get for Chrissy this year?

I got tons of little presents from my students this year (including a really nice scarf), but none of them gave me Vegemite or Twisties. So I will give them all terrible scores and they can spend the winter holiday reflecting on their mistake.

You bloody bragger Royce! Well I got 2 blocks of Cadbury's chocolates, Tim Tams, Mint Slice, tinned oysters, cheese sauce, 4 different gravy mixes, shortbread bickies, a jar of sweet spiced gherkins and a tin of beetroot. I bought 5 tins of anchovies in the Philippines which I use on my home made pizzas.

A book by HG? That should be interesting.

What gets me is the cost of postage from OZ. $63AUD to post contents valued at $20AUD!!

@mArtiAn....a jumper? Not many reading this forum will know what that is. I have had to drop the term as nobody here knows what a jumper is! They think I am referring to a kangaroo.

Happy New Year folks!!!

You can buy tim tams in like every supermarket here in southern china now. I had no idea what the hell a tim tam was till an aussie friend introduced me. I immediatly became addicted. Best export since ....... I cant think of a witty answer,... its early..... some aussie hot actress.

Anyways, my family wont send anything anymore so i just got cash. 1000 us, paid for my flights to Dalian to play in the snow, 5 star hotel and turkey dinner!

Oh and a friend sent me the burning fire log dvd hahaha pretty sweet

I haven't had a care package for years! Too expensive to send and takes forever! Doesn't mean I don't miss them though!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
