I've heard women be called many names - some endearing and some not so endearing - but this was the first time to hear them likened to Christmas Cake. Yes, Christmas Cake. Here it is said "Like Christmas Cake women are no good after 25." I didn't get it at first, but it means that after Dec 25th no one wants Christmas Cake and no one wants a woman over the age of 25. :-O
Can you believe that crap? Luckily it was a woman who explained it to me because I wouldn't have taken it so kindly from a man. So every Christmas single women moan in unison as they feel the pressure of not being able to get a man.
My Japanese girlfriend explained to me that she's 30 and single so that makes her a 5 yr old Christmas Cake. Me? I'm a 1 yr old Christmas Cake. Grrreeaaat! :-S
On another note, here are some random pics of the season.
Why'd they have to go an' mess with the Colonel?
It's 30 degrees and they still insist on lining up around the building and down the street for ice-cream. Buy shares in Cold Stone!
I just couldn't capture how pretty all the lights were. But they were.
