1.Swimming In Coffee Boy
This young fellow has a tendency to drink endless cups of coffee, then get his goggles on, pour himself a fresh cup and dive in.
He's a master of all competition strokes and is particularly adept at the butterfly.

2. 24 Hour Billie Jean
He began life as most Minipops do: as one of many in a list. But 24 Hour Billie Jean wanted to break out, he was different, you see.
He, specifically, was very slow at dancing. It takes him many days to complete a dance routine. So, I had to put a limit on his dancing and gave him a routine that lasts for one whole day.

3. Marmite & Sunpat
These lovebirds were the stars of the Flipcam, which was like a webcam, but better.
I set up the Flipcam in my kitchen in the old flat I had in Crystal Palace in south east London. Over many months it documented the use of various condiments, sauces and oils.
During that time a romance blossomed between Marmite, a fine yeast extract based thing that is best served spread on warm toast, and Sunpat, a popular jar of peanut butter (crunchy not creamy).
In March 2000, they ran off together, and for a while I was quite worried about their whereabouts, but it turns out they were just running around the world together, full of joys of love.
Two months later they were married. And they've been on honeymoon ever since. This is the first time I've seen them since then, so I'm sure they'll have one heck of a slide show to be showing me.

4. Stewart
My trusty steed.
I was out shopping for a bicycle in the summer, and there he was. Not as flashy or shiney as some, but he looked gorgeous to me. I gazed at him, he gazed back.
Now Stewart and I travel everywhere together. Apart from if I fly anywhere, because Stewart is very very scared of flying.

5. Meg
A Kentia palm. A beautiful plant that makes my flat a prettier place to be.

6. This Little Doggy
Star of FFF's Christmas story, This Little Doggy spent many months preparing for his role as a fat little puppy by eating loads of chocolate biscuits and spending hours perfecting a forlorn look. He's like the Robert de Niro of the canine world.
He was due to go to Battersea Dog's Home after his role was over, but FFF Boy & I liked him so much, we decided to keep him.

7. Pixel
The female lead in Boy Meets Pixel. Played by top Hollywood leading lady, Meg Ryan.

8. Flip Flop Flyin' Boy
My best friend.
FFF Boy & I have known each other for a few years now, and it was him who forced me to make a website.
I was glad to help, cos he has lots of ideas, but his fingers aren't big enough to use computer.
He and I share a birthday, 22nd September, but FFF Boy also has an "official" birthday, just like Queen Elizabeth II.
His official birthday is 12th May.
He has to have two birthdays because he gets too excited to just have one.

9. Raul The Owl
One of the fine creature from the Cheap Zoo. Raul is a big fan of the Real Madrid star from whom he takes his name.
We've adopted him, and the Cheap Zoo wanted us to look after him over for the Christmas holidays, and we were only too willing to oblige.

top

10. George's Widow
We invited George's widow to our Christmas party bcause she's been very lonely since her husband died. She was overjoyed when we asked her to come, and she brought lots of nice cakes with her.

top

11. Pink Sofa
Whenever any of us are tired, Pink Sofa is who we go to. Pink Sofa is very comfy indeed.

top

12. Ralf
This little fellow came into our lives earlier this year when he began his journey to the seaside. He's still not there yet, but I sent the FFF chopper to go and get him so he could be home for Christmas. The chopper will be dropping him back in the forest in the new year so he can continue his journey.

13. Twin Eltons
These young fellows have been waiting in the wings of FFF for a while now. They want to get out there and do their thing, but currently their only fame is being some desktop wallpaper. FFF Boy & I found them on our doorstep one day in the summer. They were giggling a lot and playing little jokes on each other that we didn't understand. So we took them in to see if we could understand. We still don't.

top

14. Christmas Tree
A very beautiful young lady is Christmas Tree, but she's also very shy.
If it was up to FFF Boy and I, we'd have her out on display all year round, but she likes to be put away in a cupboard in early January. Come the end of November, though, she starts perking up and can't wait to get all dressed up.

top

15. Presents
We don't know what these are yet, cos Santa brought them.

top

16. Mr. Flamingo
Because of the mess FFF Boy sometimes makes, and because I'm a bit too lazy to tidy up after him, I decided that we needed a butler.
So I we went to the agency where you go to get a man for the job, and found they had a flamingo butler. Well, how could we refuse?
He's a good butler, always there when I return from work, taking my coat and enquiring if I'd like him to draw a bath for me. My paper is always ironed and my shoes are polished to perfection. When he goes off duty, he likes to stand in the paddling pool that I put on the balcony for him, where he smokes his pipe and preens himself.

top

17. Kraftwerk
Four Germans from the Düsseldorf area who've been kind enough to let us watch their progress putting together that elusive new album. They tend to just sit around a lot and make fun of my attempts at their language.

So, from us, The Flip Flop Flyin' Family, a Very Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year.
