Santa Dan

Blah... Yay!

Over the last few days I've been gradually feeling slightly sicker every day. It's slightly annoying, especially as I'm feelin' particularly RS today, and I'm going to be Santa-ing tonight and tomorrow.

Mind you... gunna love playing Father Christmas no matter how sick I feel. May even wander the neighbourhood in costume tonight after I get back, depending on how the heat has hit me.

Mind you, even though I feel blah, the video below is made of awesome and has cheered me right up. I think it's the joyous laughter at the end :)

San-Ta

One down...

Well, Santa-ing for Glenn's family went well tonight. The kids were thrilled, Glenn and his wife seemed to enjoy the experience, I enjoyed doing it, it was good.

Glenn's a customer who became a mate, so it was nice to be able to repay all the business (and friendship) he's given me with a visit from Father Christmas.

It was bloody hard though. Been crook all day, struggled to get ready, but once I was in the suit - POOF! I'm the man, and ain't nuthin' gunna stop me! I'm in character, and I'm goin' for it!

Had lots of people toot or wave at Kringle in his 1970 Holden, too, which I always enjoy.

Got home, stripped off the suit, and it was like Fearless Fly taking off his glasses, except a little slower. Back to feeling really, really substandard and ill.

But very, very happy!

Tomorrow I get to do it again, not for the person who won the eBay bid (don't get me started... grrrr....) but for someone who saw the eBay ad and contacted me. Looking forward to that :)
