This lurgy appears to be viral. Possibly not flu, after all, but certainly energy-sapping and 'orrible.

I spent most of Christmas Day (and Christmas Eve, and Boxing Day) in bed, comatose. I did manage some turkey and sprouts (mmm, sprouts) and then went straight back to bed. I can just about (even now) cope with half an hour or so of concentration (for example, winning Scrabble) and then need Yet More Sleep.

Most disturbingly of all, I've been off tea.

Dad managed to prove that he's not always an arse (although I might have slept through evidence to the contrary) and decided that his screaming flying monkey was the best present he'd ever got.

Today I'm in the office, theoretically finishing the UK tax return but in actuality trying to concentrate and focus. So far, 2 out of 3 people have told me I look like death cooled down.

Both Yuletide and Scribblemoose are blocked from work. Bah, Humbug. Speaking of Yuletide, though, I got an adorable Antique Bakery fic and an equally adorable and Terribly Manly Fenndom one, too! Hurrah for gaily ejaculating soldiers! AND! Despite the author reveal not happening until 1 Jan, I've been recced! (Only once, but That's Not The Point.) Whee!

Ok; all that was far too exciting. I'm going to stare blankly at a spreadsheet again for a bit.

i.e. 7 hanks of Graffiti, in dusk (and OMG COLOUR...), one mohair in purple (possibly Velvet Damson), and one Giotto in purple :)

Also, an external hard drive, a manicure & pedicure, some smelly stuff, a magnetic photo frame, a scarf, some gorgeous jewellery, chocolate, and chocolate. Something inspires people to give me chocolate money. Hurrah :) And thank you, [livejournal.com profile] claire_wain & [livejournal.com profile] indochine_uk :) Now all I need is ATCB in a big bow & I'll have all the pretty things I could ask for...

The PLAN for tomorrow is to be in Camden at 2ish. [livejournal.com profile] faerierhona is nominally IC organisation, but it would be lovely to see anyone else there as well - call me & I'll tell you where I am at the time. I intend to get some new PVC jeans, 2 new ear holes and whatever else inspires me :)

Merry Christmas Icon (and hurrah for Photoshop) :)

And now to get ready for the work do. Given that my hair is still wet, my ears blue and I have no idea where my plunge bra has gone (*how* can I lose something that - substantial?) , this could take some time. And then I have to get into town, and across town, wearing pvc and a corset.

What? I'm the wrong shape for party frocks!

No joke today. Band Aid released "Do They Know It's Christmas" in 1984.

(The same year Iron Maiden (baby) released Powerslave, a far superior piece of work. 10 days to go!)

So. The Advent calendar this year1 has not only chocolate behind each door, but also a bad cracker-style joke. Never one to keep pain to myself2, I'm sharing them3. So, without more ado:

Oh yes; O2's share of the air is full, so I've managed to get hardly any texts through today. If you haven't heard from me, assume either I don't know you (or your number) or it wouldn't send.

I have a digital camera! (Canon somthingorother, possibly an Iosis, though that might be the new Ford Mondeo-based concept car instead. With this blood alcohol level, I'm not sure). Anyway, what I have has 5megapixels and no gullwing doors, so probably isn't the 4-wheeled version.

[livejournal.com profile] riksowden - you really shouldn't have, but thank you hugely anyway. I'll give you a big hug & a pint when I see you :)

Doctor Who :) Doctor Who, in pyjamas, quoting the Lion King :) Yup, that's where my Richard Hammond crush came from. David Tennant appears to have less ego as well, which is all good. Very nicely timed episode, too, after James May advocating duelling yesterday :) Note to Self: Self, buy Casanova in the sales.

Camden tomorrow :)

Tax xmas do tonight.
Wearing pinstripe corset & death wellies in office.
Lack of oxygen is exceeding the "willthisgetmedisciplined(inabadway)" worries.

Ho hum...

Or spontaneous combustion, or large hand coming down from the heavens & squishing me like a bug.

Of all the things to do this lunchtime, I (rampant screaming atheist that I am) went to a carol service at the Town Hall. Not just any service; this one was organised by the Lawyers Christian Fellowship.

They didn't do The First Noel, which is my favouritest carol (of those written in English) ever, but it was still jolly good fun, and I behaved myself very well & didn't sing "washed their socks". Some students from the RNCM did a non-religious interlude (which gave me time to relax & stop thinking people were going to see my ankh and damn me to hell) - The Swan and a flute / piano piece that I didn't recognise.

I'm more confused than ever about my singing voice. I was comfortably matching the *men* we were sitting next to. Do women sing tenor?

I wish I could believe in god(s/ess/es). Everyone seemed so happy & full of christmas cheer, all because of faith.
