Posted:From Home of Poi
*Electroglo poi
*Flags
*Four LED's! ( )
x 2 Blue
x 2 Green
From out, around the town
*Pants for spinning in
*One gallon of white gas
*A Mossimo hat (My other two are brown... they were black)
*A blanket!! It's so immensly warm! ( 's his blanket)

**And since we ran out of wrapping paper, my mom wrapped all of her presents in Lame fabric... when we were all done unwrapping them she said:
"So, Kinudin. Later on in the week, you'll have to show me some designs for flags!"
Me: "Wha?"
Mom: "Yea! You don't think I had this pretty wrapping paper to throw away did you? I'm gonna make flags out of them!"**

Merry Christmas everyone!
Happy spinning. Much Love
Kinudin

i made myself a pair of stripey meteors for my christmas present.

Posted:one of my performance art professors was a riot... she did all kinds of crazy chicken performances where she was dressed as a chicken in public. she said it was her totem spirit guide . i think she was serious about that part too.
i have a friend named "space chicken" she calls everybody chicken too.
when we get together my name is "space gnashing tooth"
she has another friend in on it, he is "space bucket of balogney"

Posted:Wakka Wakka Wakka...your prof. sounds like my type of people!!! I would love to dance around in public like a chicken...but dont tell too many people...k? Our secret.
Maybe your space chicken and I could get together and start the fire twirler, chicken fanciers secret society of flaming chickens....
You may be a member, space gnashing tooth...We will bestow the golden flaming chicken touch on you which enables you to touch a member of the public who will proceed to cluck like a chicken uncontrolably, for your personal entertainment for three mins exactly...whaddya reckon?
Would crack me up...I'd get the Prime Minister Johnny Howard to do it on telly ....LOL

I got a new hoodie

a microwave oven (I missed having one soooooo bad)

a toolbox for my truck that fits widthwise across the bed, so now I have a safe place to store my staff and wicks without exposing them to the elements or having my room/car smell like kero.

I got a set of nice laquerd chopsticks from my mom that have little pewter Bhuddas on the ends.

I got some new tools, a set of deepwell sockets and such

and a wicked candle shaped like a tree in winter.

Last night it was port wine cheese with nuts, hard sausage, crackers, tapenade (a delish olive spread), baked brie, orange cranberry loaf, eggnog with bourbon, some chocolate, and a blue-striped peppermint stick that turned my lips and tongue blue...
Today, gosh, coffee and chocolate and cheese/ham croissants and chocolate and smoked fontina and oranges from the stocking, leftovers from Christmas Dinner at my housemate's grandma's house(yum!), and i may have some chocolate...

I got:
(in ascending order of of my excitement)
a little inspirational plaque from my boss (snicker), but with a cool kayaking picture
a Nutcracker ornament
a gold star ornament (I collect)
a floral bath set
a handmade candle that smells really nice
A copy of Stanislaus Lem's short story collection The Cyberiad
a copy of Horton Hears A Who (yay!)
A pair of cool coppper planters
a deep green fuzzy-fleece throw (which my dog promptly tried to take possession of)
a ticket to the Avs/Calgary hockey game Jan 7th!
A new original sculpture by Denver artist Rogelio Quinones, whose work i collect

and

a phone call from my oldest brother, from whom i have not heard in about 6 years, as he had sort of dropped away from the family for a while. I was so glad to hear from him, i actually cried...

Merry Christmas to all my Home Of Poi family...

Posted:Oh my god...you are all listing stuff down....

Okay well....

From Noah, a cd (Shakira in Spanish) that he picked out and this great wall hanging he made. I love it.

From Whipping Boy, 3 postcards: One is a vamp scene that is beautiful, one is a girl on a fire painted trike that says "What are girls made of? Tattoo's, Bikes and Staring Fights" LOL, and the 3rd says "You all laugh at me beacuse I am different. I laugh at all of you because you are the same." I like! He also gave me a pretty green sweater, and a kick ass t-shirt that says "I live in my own little world, but that's okay, they all know me here!" ..It is soooo true!

From My best friend:A home brewing kit and the new Anne Rice book

From my North Carolina friends: 3 tatoos (yes, real ones. I sat for 3 hours on them and my tatist kicked me out saying I was nuts to get all 3...so I have about an hour left of work)

From my house mates: 6 mini-oil candles where the wicks burn green, purple and pink for candle belly dancing.

From some friends I didn't think were friends: The Tarot-Sutra deck (they are really cool)

From a very beloved friend way across the ocean: The Charles Dolbel/HOP Art of Staff video (nice job!) and some money to kick off my NZ visit when I get there. (I laughed and cried..thank you! )

From another amazing friend way across the ocean:
A healthy check, an adorable change purse and some items from my son and fantastic photo's of him. (If you read this, I love you sweetie!)

Clothes, scented bath stuff, a good amount in gift certificates, food, candles, money, a snowman ornament....

I actually cried tears of joy for the first time in a long time. I really enjoyed seeing people open gifts that we gave them that I was nervous about to find out they really loved them alot.
I even had a peaceful afternoon with my family, for Noah's sake. I didn't even need alcohol to get through it! (and I had some ice cream to think of a friend and share that moment from a distance with! )

And we aren't done yet. Tomorrow we are having Midwinter with my friends! YAY! I picked out some nifty stuff for them!

Oh, and how can I forget...Mother Nature dropped a blizzard on us....the driving was terrible and the snow is now knee deep on me (and I am fairly tall!)

Noah got so much he can open his own toy shop now!

Hope you all enjoy your gifts and have a great New Year!
