It's only rock and roll

We had a few more big earthquakes yesterday. Not really what we needed two days before Christmas. Luckily, no one was seriously injured. Since there's not much you can do in these situations except keep calm and carry on, we spent Christmas eve eve eating blue cheese stuffed olives and pepperdews and watching telly (which was still sitting on the floor where it had fallen during the quake).

I'm not heavily into the whole Christmas thing (we don't even have a tree) and I hate Christmas songs but Tim Minchin's White Wine in the Sun pretty much sums up all my feelings about it. I hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday however you celebrate, and manages to drink some white wine (or other beverage) in the sun (or snow if you live in the Northern hemisphere).


  1. Fabulous christmas song :-)

    Enjoy and keep safe,


  2. That song is hilarious! Poor Miss Camelia Crinoline in Christchurch :( I hope it gets better. What a horrible, scary thing for you to have to go through! I think you need wine. Lots of wine x

  3. I don't do christmas, Jesus Birthday either its more about whanau time and continued birthday celebrations. My xmas anthem is a bit cliche, Fairytale in New York. Keep safe.

  4. Yay,the quakey bollocks hasn't got you down!!
    I am not big on the Chrissy thing,just the hanging with awesome peeps and drinking/eating lots to be grateful for all the good things!

  5. Love this song! My sentiments exactly. And love Tim Minchin too, he's so funny. Merry Christmas to you and I hope there will be no more earthquakes for you!!!

  6. Mmmmm, blue cheese stuffed! Glad those quakes haven't got you down too much and that Xmas was wonderful. x
