Scraping the barrel for uncostly prezzies, BEN TROVATO came up with this.

Here in the Burrow, the festive season will thankfully be more traditional - mince pies galore by Mrs Malaprop, free drinks on the house in the Snug, a carol concert by Dame Barbara's Heavenly Choir of Virtuous Virgins [ guitar backing by Cliff and the Shadows], while Anticant will be giving readings from selected portions of his newly published Memoirs Low Life at the Top.

The Beadle will ensure propriety and due decorum.

By Order

Oh yes I could really get into those mince pies of Mrs Malaprop.
Have here as me Christmas bunny I will.

I say, readings from /Lush Life At The Low End/ and 'propriety & decorum' seems an odd juxtaposition. No tutus, one supposes? Dulce et decorum pro ambigua and all that.... I'll have a most unislamic bottle (or three!) of stout, please!

I am cooking Beef Wellington for the family.
Don't know whether to do a single or whether to do individual ones.

Any suggestions?

/I/ am boling lutfisk, taters and cabbage...something that reduces the guest list pretty generally!

Please Bodwyn : Do not "boil" those mince pies of Mrs Malapoopers. They are just nice as they are !
I know.

Is Anticant really to "give seedlings from his (most e-specially prepared)potions."

Jet Harris has already refused to attend.

Just the fish, Zola...and out on the veranda, mind you (says SWMBO!)

No fishy things concerning Mrs Malapoopers - not in the Burrow anyway.
