AN ICELAND CHRISTMAS MAX OUT

SO, THIS YEAR WE DECIDED ON DOING SOMETHING FESTIVE AS A GROUP OF REASONABLY GROWN UP AND CIVILISED FRIENDS. WE DECIDED TO CONGRERATE AT JOSH'S FLAT (FIT), THE WARMEST, CLEANEST, POSSIBLY MOST STYLISH OF ALL THE HOMES THAT ANY OF US LONDON LOT ACTUALLY LIVE IN. ANYWAY, A QUICK STOP OFF AT ICELAND IN HOXTON NEXT TO THE MACBETH (STEPH "I NEVER KNEW THIS WAS HERE! WHY HAVEN'T YOU EVER TOLD ME? WHY? WHHHHHY?") AND WE WERE MORE THAN ON OUR WAY TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS DO' WHICH RIVALLED COLLEEN AND JASON'S. I SHOULD THINK ABOUT £73 WAS SPENT IN TOTAL IN ICELAND, WHICH WAS ENOUGH TO BUY MORE FOOD THAN WAS PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO EAT .AS YOU CAN SEE, WE DRANK ONLY THE FINEST BOOZE ICELAND AND POSSIBLY JOSH'S CUPBOARD, HAD TO OFFER.WE SAT TOGETHER AROUND JOSH'S STYLISH COFFEE TABLE, CHATTING LAUGHING AND GENERALLY ENJOYING EACH OTHERS COMPANY. WELL, I THOUGHT WE WERE, UNTIL I SAW THIS PHOTOGRAPH OF A CERTAIN MR BENEDICT SIDDLE (CLOSET SCROOGE? YOU DECIDE?)THERE WERE ALMOST TOO MANY YUM FACES TO PHOTOGRAPH. THIS ONE IS A PARTICULAR FAVOURITE OF MINE OF RIA. ENJOYING HER QUORN LOG (MORE TO FOLLOW).THIS IS THE DINNER ITSELF. A FINE COLLATION. WE DIDN'T EAT TURKEY BECAUSE 1. IT WAS TOO EXPENSIVE. 2. IT PROBABLY WOULDN'T HAVE FITTED IN JOSH'S OVER AND 3. WE HAD A TIME FACTOR (OR RATHER) THE X FACTOR TO WORRY ABOUT (MORE TO FOLLOW).WE ATE TWO CHICKENS AS AN ALTERNATIVE. OSKAR MARCUS TOOK AN UNUSUAL DELIGHT IN FONDLING THE CHICKEN ANUS. MEANWHILE, JOSH'S FLAT WAS DECORATED IN QUALITY FINERY.OF COURSE, WE ALL DRESSED FOR THE OCCASION.
FINALLY, WE ALL GOT TOGETHER TO EXCHANGE PRESENTS WE'D BOUGHT FOR ONE ANOTHER IN A SECRET SANTA EXERCISE. ASH'S CHOICE OF UNDER THE SEA ORIGAMI FOR CARMEN WAS INSPIRED. BILLY GOT BOUGHT THESE RATHER FETCHING SNOW GOGGLES (HE'S GOING TO THE MEDITERANNEAN FOR CHRISTMAS-THATS A HOT PLACE. ) AFTER ALL THE EXCITEMENT, WE WERE SLEEPY BEAVERS, BUT THE BEST HAD YET TO COME. WE SAT DOWN TO WATCH THE X FACTOR. BUT THATS ANOTHER POST ENTIRELY. MERRY MAXOUT!
