Merry Christmas to you, PM!

Hmmm, flowered hankies? Sounds like someone was trying to reach your feminine side. :o)

This is funny. But a lot of men appreciate pink shirts now...my husband, my musician friends, my male friends, my bros, my male cousins--practically most of them. I think it's now an "accepted color" for being fashionable for men.

Merry Christmas and may you enjoy peace, love , blessings in this celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Thanks Bingkee,

TO be honest, if Mrs PM bought me a pink shirt for Christmas I would have to wear it (at least once anyway).

Thanks again and I hope you have a fabulous Christmas

Cheers

I'm with you on the Celine CD, the socks, the hankies, the scenic paintings, romantic novels and ballet tickets. The rest would be fine by me. Although who is Gok Wan??

Merry Christmas to you too, PM!

Hi Pia,

Gok Wan is a new fashion guru. He has a TV programme called "How To Look Good Naked" that Mrs PM positively adores.

I rant about it and him a lot. I'll post about it and him soon...

:-)

Cheers

Funny post as usual. I'll be sure to show people this so that they know what not to get me for Christmas. Haha. Merry Christmas!

I hope my little ditty helps.
