Santa lists sure have changed, haven't they? Remember when you were interesting? When your Christmas list included things like "A glow-in-the-dark dinosaur, a WWF skateboard and army men!"

I like everything everything that was big in the 80's: Meatloaf power ballads, video games with swords and dragons, cartoons about anthropomorphic animals solving crimes and movies with Bill Murray in them. I know nothing about any sports, with the exception of Quidditch. I'm also fond of tea, the occasional custard cream and support the Browncoats
