Twelve days of Scifi hubby

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2013! I’ll do a post looking forward to what’s coming up in 2013 soon but after silence for a few days I thought I’d fill you in on twelve days away with Scifi hubby in true Christmas style…

    On the first day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    An Iron Man power band (his main Christmas present although I think he actually prefered the children’s toy version of the power bands which he also got!),

    On the second day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Two Hitchcock sketches (David Hitchcock is an amazing artist that we are friends with. He gave Scifi hubby two amazing pieces he’d done of Batman with the Penguin and Batman with the Joker. The Penguin piece in particular is beautiful, Batman is fighting Penguin in the Iceberg Lounge surrounded by evil looking penguins),
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the third day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books (to mention just a few!),
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the fourth day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Four Batman pillow cases (and a kingside Batman duvet cover – thanks Mum!),
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the fifth day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Five bottles of booze (Dad took pity on Scifi hubby and bought enough alcohol for Christmas to be easy),
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the sixth day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Six jars of mayonnaise (I know this sounds crazy but we can’t get Scifi hubby’s favourite brand of mayonnaise where we live so we’ve come home with six HUGE jars of the stuff),
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the seventh day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Seven hours at the comic shop (We have some wonderful, long suffering friends who run an online comic shop. We went to visit for a couple of hours, stayed until 1am, ate them out of house and home and then spent far too much money on yet more comic books),
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the eighth day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Eight balloon hats (my mother’s idea – a kit for making balloon hats. Some hilarious results and a very scared cat),
    Seven hours at the comic shop,
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the ninth day of Christmas, Scifi hubby got
    Nine lead Batman figures (he’s been collecting one of these 120 part magazines which come with lead DC figures. Unfortunately they won’t post them to our house so they all end up at my mother’s. She stacks them in a great pile in the guest room and we collect them when we can. Thankfully this series has just finished, unfortunately there’s a new series starting on Batmobiles. Shhhh Mum doesn’t know yet…),
    Eight balloon hats,
    Seven hours at the comic shop,
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the tenth day of Christmas,
    Scifi hubby got
    Ten Batman questions (we had a 13 hour drive home and Scifi hubby doesn’t drive so he decided his role was to keep me entertained. Sadly this seemed to mostly involve a Batman quiz app on the iPad which asks ten multiple choice questions about the Batman universe. There’s several problems with this, first, it’s timed so he couldn’t read out the answer options leaving me to guess every time. Second, the app seems to only have about forty questions so over the course of a few hours even I learnt the answers. Third, he felt the need to explain every answer I didn’t know in great detail so I now know the backstory for Joker (the Red Hood), Harley Quinn (a psychiatrist) and Jason Todd (stole the wheels from the Batmobile). Finally it’s Batman so risks making fall asleep anyway!),
    Nine lead Batman figures,
    Eight balloon hats,
    Seven hours at the comic shop,
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the eleventh day of Christmas,
    Scifi hubby got
    (One hundred and ) Eleven Hot Wheels cars (Scifi hubby’s mother has a lot to answer for – she used to buy him a toy car every time they went food shopping. Somehow this has become a Hot Wheel car whenever we go into a supermarket, and this holiday got he got a little out of control!),
    Ten Batman questions,
    Nine lead Batman figures,
    Eight balloon hats,
    Seven hours at the comic shop,
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band.

    On the twelfth day of Christmas,
    Scifi hubby got
    Driven Twelve hundred miles (hmmm maybe an massive underestimate but it fits the lyrics and I’m fed up with this song now I don’t know about you!),
    (One hundred and ) Eleven Hot Wheels cars,
    Ten Batman questions,
    Nine lead Batman figures,
    Eight balloon hats,
    Seven hours at the comic shop,
    Six jars of mayonnaise ,
    Five bottles of booze,
    Four Batman pillow cases,
    Three Judge Dredd Case files books
    Two Hitchcock sketches,
    And an Iron Man power band!

Now he’s just got to work out where to put everything…

Happy New Year!
