So it's Boxing Day now, but I just wanted to extend a Merry Christmas to anyone actually reading this. I had a very good but very, very hot day yesterday. Christmas morn was awesome, got so many pressies and our dog Tess, a yellow labrador, just went nuts with the wrapping paper. Visited Mum's family in West Auckland, where we had a great lunch, pork and beef off the spit and lots and lots of Pavlova afterwards. Heaps of people there, I swear it just gets bigger every year! My cousin Kylie bought her new kitten to show us - he is the cutest thing ever, and his name is Huffer, adorable!!!
At around 4pm, my brother Adam and his girlfriend Sarah came over from Sarah's family lunch, and we drove together to Ararimu for my Dad's family dinner, which is about an hour south of Auckland, in, like, country area. Two new additions to that side of the family as well - my cousin Nick's new baby Piper, who's about five months and it was the first time we've got to see her, and my cousin Julianne's new baby Eliza, who's nearly three months. On top of that, Piper's older sister Scout, who's almost three years old - so it was like baby central. Got to play with some playdough, oh yeah!
Piper is SO cute, I wanted to take her home, such a good baby!

Anyway, thought I'd catalogue my Christmas haul:

I got Mum a rose & patchouli scented infuser and a cupcake shaped tea cosy (she asked for it!), I got my Dad Port glasses, where you sip through the handle, my brother some shot glasses and his girlfriend a thing which hangs from the ceiling and you attach photos to it with heart shaped magnets.
And that was it, :). Hope your Christmas was just as good.
Can't wait for New Years! Leaving for camping with my mates tomorrow.

TITLE: Hell & High Water
AUTHOR: hollow13 
RATING: Not sure how to rate it, but high up there- M for mature, maybe?! I think the term is “not poeia compatible.” Nasty things happen to House, alright?
WARNINGS & NOTES: This is based on the Contractverse, which if you haven’t already read or heard about, is an awesome but tragic fic from diysheep  (who I really hope doesn’t mind me writing under the umbrella of the Contractverse! Respect, I promise!). As it is a Contractverse fic, you can expect a lot of angst and violence and torture. Be warned! You can find all the Contract stuff here: http://contractverse.livejournal.com/. Also, partially inspired by a passage from a novel called Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – but its quite different, just a little borrowing going on…
SUMMARY: A mean little story in which House gets wet (not in the sexy way either)…
