Yuletide? It's more like a yuletsunami

i'm feeling unusually festive.

maybe it's the combination of wine, beer, and greek food from my office christmas soiree.

maybe it's the fact i missed the run-up to christmas last year thanks to being in warmer, sunnier climes eating tapas by the bucketload, and now i'm making up for lost time.

maybe it's having a chica to chase. there's certainly something in the air other than the cloud of noxious gas falling out from hemel hempstead.

or maybe it's just destiny's child's '8 days of christmas' playing over and over on my ipod. sample line - 'on the eighth day of christmas my baby gave to me: a pair of chloe shades and a diamond belly ring'.

is it wrong to be this excited when i dislike/reject both the religious and the commercial aspects of the season? what is it exactly that i like? it's not the tinsel fosho.

It's the time off work and the morning drinking that I like.

Plus the delicious mutton curry we always celebrate christmas with at work.

And of course the impending Ashes day! Ten Hours!!

its the time of year to let your ethical scrutiny take a little holiday of its own. I;m totally aware of it.. I get all soppy during the Christmas period and crave American festive cheese. I totally buy into it. Haha

what, like 50 slices of american festive cheese?

and john, is there anything especially seasonal about you drinking in the morning? hohoho. it is nice though. g'n't never tastes better than when drunk before 1pm on a wintry day when you're inside and the central heating is cranked up to 11.
