"Hold out your hand, come back to me...."



7 feet of festive fantastic-ness. Alliteration turns me on baby.

Christmas cards sent - 0
Christmas cards bought - 78 (Yes, really. I only need about 15 but I panicked and bulk bought in Paperchase. 3 for 2. What's a girl to do. Rhyming ftw!)
Christmas presents bought - 3
New 'essential' Christmas outfits bought - 2
Mince pies consumed so far in December - Approximately 700

I am seriously behind.

I am however winning in the Christmas cheer stakes. Festive spirit FTW!

So, in the spirit of yuletide procrastination here's a round up of all things internet that are bringing joy into this cold cold house:
  • Food porn. If you only click on one link this year, click on this one. I beg of ye.
  • Ffffound! I cannot get enough of it. I just need someone to invite me so I can participate. Anyone? Anyone? (A prize for the guesser of the tenuous movie link. Well, not really a prize. More a pat on the metaphorical back)
  • Quagmire It. For all your festive giggedy needs.
  • San Diego zoo Panda Cam. I have become obsessed with those black and white beasts.
  • Stay Puft. I know he's meant to be scary but I heart him. I can't believe I hadn't seen Ghostbusters until earlier this year. Sick. Sick and wrong.
  • Alexey Titarenko's 'City of Shadows' photographs. Truly breathtaking. Sinister yet utterly beautiful.


And on that slightly spooky and Russian note...

What's rocking your world, my wee Christmas elves?

We don't even have our tree up yet. I don't know if we will! I'm running around like the proverbial blue-arsed fly, away at the weekend for my cousin's wedding and then we're away for Christmas. Woez! But m mum's got hers up, and her wee crib which she bought for my first Christmas, so that gave me a little smile tonight.
