Bad Giftgetting - from Good Housekeeping's Christmas cook book 1958.

Wattle I get? ....Gathering wattle for Christmas

I am a Losing Lottery Ticket! (Full of hope and promise. But in the end, a cheap letdown)
What crappy gift are you (via lexicon)

Comments: wattle

I think it's a damn shame that wattle is no longer gathered for Christmas. Slap on a tablespoonful or two of daub & pour yourself a glass of Chateau Marmont '98 to wash it down with & you've got yourself a toothsome seasonal supper dish.

Crap pictures though.

Now this is book illustration,...and where I want to be for Christmas.

I think I had most of the books listed from '57 to '74, and still have the Eagle space and rockets one. Great bog reading.

I realise that reads rather ambiguously. To clarify - I meant the getting of gifts, not the receiving. I would only ever cast apsersions on my own gift selection of course. ;)

Sounds good, Dick - though maybe a wattlecino is in order with shopping still to be done:
The Gumleaf smoked salmon and salmon pâté sounds pretty good, as do the Bunya nut slivers. I could avail myself of the Bunyas in parental garden.

I desperately wanted to be Socks, Link.

Great blog reading, thanks Nabakov.
Will have to save it up for the sleepy Boxing Boxing Boxing days.

Cheers Michelle. You too.
