I went shopping today with my girlfriend, and we finished most of her shopping.  Since I have very few people to shop for, my work is pretty much done.  I am decorating a couple of stockings I bought for the dogs, since we don’t have kids, our dogs get as much doggy toys and treats as we can shove in their stockings.  It’s not that I think they are kids and deserve a stocking, it’s just easier to shove unwrapped toys/treats into a stocking, than anything else I can think of.

I’m also going to make the video on Christmas crackers.  If I didn’t mention it already, my girlfriend and I perfected our own Christmas cracker system yesterday, but I was too tired to complete the video.  It’s important the I don’t waste the opportunity to show how to make the traditional Christmas cracker, as others have made them on video, but don’t show the cracker or the other components that make them like the English do.  I wanted to actually make mine crack, because the videos I’ve seen, only show either how to make the cracker (without exploding it), or how to make the cracker without including the explosive device.  No, it doesn’t actually explode, but it does make a loud popping noise…at least the ones we tested yesterday did.  Of course that wasn’t on video..once I’m on video, you never know what could happen.  I might not get any popping, or I might burn down the house–it’s really a toss up.  I guess you’ll have to watch the video to decide what happens.  I’m seriously hoping it won’t be an ugly experience, but I have had so many fails, that I don’t want to get my hopes up for a positive outcome…
