Tis the Season?

Whether it is because I am the product of a very large family, Santa Claus is not very creative, or my folks want their life to be made easier, I am required to submit some form of Christmas list every year.

You may have noticed some hints and suggestions already posted on my past blog entries....

I really am at a point where I don't need or want much. I don't have space, really. But this year I have thought of two things that I really, really want and "need."

1) A bathrobe

I no longer live by myself, and scampering from the bathroom to my room in the buff is no longer acceptable. A towel alone can be chilly and I am modest. Nuff Said.

2) A Dutch Oven

Not the Urban Variety.
1. Colloquially, a "game" in which one person traps another under a doona after a pungent rectal emission in order to "share" the odour.
Rather, this type.

Although I may not be worthy of such beautyful kitchen things, I have a dream of acquiring a set of GREEN Le Creuset cookware.
I figure I have a number of years left to cook, and these will last a long time. I'll just start one pan at a time...... Hopefully this year- an oval Dutch Oven!! (or French Oven) I'm not at all sure about the size so any suggestions would be grand.

I do not at all need these, but I have been lusting after them ever since I saw them in the Le Creuset outlet store. Soooo cute!

Hmm- my comment re cast iron dutch ovens for the last post might be better placed here. C'est la interweb.

As to that robe - I can pretty much guarantee if your Mom OR Dad reads this blog about you scampering in your altogether with only a towel to cover you will get a floor length robe with a hood and potentially hand mitts to match. Seriously.

No snidiness about lists please- nobody wants to spend money on a gift that won't please these days AND with picky adult children in the mix (not saying you are mind you but mine are) having a list makes life a lot easier. There's none of that uncomfortable no eye contact as you lie about how excited you are after opening something you didn't want and won't use to overcome. Win/win.

hehehe. :)
i actually don't mind making lists, i used to get rather creative with them....
but as i get older they are just much harder to make, and sometimes i feel i am putting things on there just for the sake of having something on the list- and otherwise i might not have asked for it at all.

but. meh.
