Oh, would you look at that...  
I'm not going to New Zealand. Nope. Not at all. Not going. End of story. Yep. That's it. Nada.

Instead, I'm going to Vancouver in Canada!

See, Mum's decided that rather than just going to New Zealand, (which is about as "over the road" as you can get on the only island continent) we'd go somewhere a bit... further for the ski trip. Okay, understatement - much further. She told me that she knew I'd always wanted to go, ever since I was little, and so she was going to, one way or another, this Christmas, take me to Canada. She's been haggling away on the phone all day. At this rate, the flight's going to cost us each $1,100 return. All up, we'll be paying... $2,200AUD! That's, like, NOTHING! And that's got the tax included, even! *faints*

Okay, so half this trip is going to be credit-card funded. (please find the bank manager who gave one to her; I'd like to knock him cold. Seriously) This will obviously rack up a massive $2,000 debt, but heck. It'll be like the mortgage we never had, only much, much smaller. :P I'm not sure I disagree so much anymore, anyway. Mum's going, and she's taking me, whether I like it or not. Regardless. Might as well enjoy it. ;D

And besides, it'll be only the second time I've ever seen real, tangible snow, and my very first white Christmas. Which, I'm sure, is a lot better than a stinking hot and sweaty Christmas, where everyone's complaining about the air con not working hard enough. *laughs*

This ought to be interesting.

And now that you've said the words "my very first white Christmas", it's going to rain. *shakes fist*

*suddenly looks sulky* Of course that'd say that. Or, worse, there'll be a heatwave. *fistshake* Oh, wait, I shouldn't have said that... ><;

Rain is definitely more likely. At least that'll still be a change, right?

True, true. Well- sort of. Christmas days around these parts are known for burn-skin-off heat and torrential downpours at the same time. *facepalm* It's like it AIMS to be on Christmas day.

Wouldn't heat + rain = steam? XP It would be funny if that actually happened.

Occasionally it gets a little misty, but otherwise, apparently not. XD It would be funny!

Typos, typos. ><

*Of course that'd happen.
