Last minute surprise packages
An unexpected thing happened the other day. I received three packages from amazon.
Now, I was surprised. Shocked. I had played with the idea of getting piss drink and drunk ordering as seen in my favourite news website:
But as it turns out, there is a Santa Claus, or in my case, Mlle Noel. I have to wait until Christmas day to unwrap the gifts, but I feel giddy like a schoolboy on a candy high.
Pre Christmas party
Before the not-born-in-Berlin Berliners leave for their holidays, I had a few them over for drinks and some brought along ornaments to adorn my tree. A friend even suggested that I wrap a white sheet around the base to make it look like snow. I even got a surprise gift in the mail from a friend in the beautiful city of Hamburg.
I’m shocked: this Christmas tree is shaping up quite nicely.
I’ve received some sympathy from a fellow reader in Berlin, and now have a copy of the Zoolander DVD under the tree. As well, I received a bottle of gin from work. Thus, not all is pathetic as a single man in Berlin over Christmas.
Fine print: I have to return the DVD.
It doesn’t light up, but still is a star(fish)
