Our only "tradition' is at every festive family meal, my Nanna makes rubbery Yorkshire puddings that may or may not have bits of teflon stuck to the bottom. She will alert you to this fact after you have eaten half of one and then proclaim "oh it's just a bit of me pan - no bother."
@Herriot, shmerriot Oh lord - there is a cat in my neighborhood called "Trouser." Not "Trousers". TROUSER. Like...a single pant leg? I don't even know. It's incredibly satisfying to hear them scream his name out the front door. Also, my cousin has a miserable, lard-ass of a cat named Broccoli.
Mediocre animal names for the win!
@Lucienne they were all like "why are you a pirate with a wreath on your head?" and I"m all "THAT IS A CROWN OF LAURELS, FUCK YOU SO MUCH."
uuggh! It is currently pouring rain in Toronto - I am sort of drunk and waiting for a streetcar, and reading this thread on my iphone. I just wanted to say that you are all so wonderful and reasonable people. Also - I am dressed like Napolean, and no one really got it BUT I FEEL LIKE YOU WOULD HAVE.
