8 Days to Spain! If one more person asks me whether I’ve started packing, I will shoot them and then have my passport cancelled so I won’t be able to go.
And while my diary isn’t quite going to Oscar Wilde’s (see above) I do plan to try and blog the trip to make you all jealous!
1) I’ve been grinning at what a turd-head Michael Crichton is: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/14/books/14cric.html?_r=1&ex=157680000&en=5f655def0e7d4adc&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink&oref=slogin. When I’m a writer, I promise not to be anywhere near as much of a turd-head. The man makes Germaine Greer look like someone’s nice drunk Nanna…
2) I’ve been trying desperately to get in a holiday mood: I found http://babychaos.wordpress.com/2006/12/15/the-most-pathetic-christmas-joke-of-all-time/ on someone’s blog, and think I may have gotten my christmas spirit together 🙂
3) I read an awesome review of BNL’s latest wonderful album, Barenaked Ladies Are Me. http://www.boingboing.net/2006/12/03/barenaked_ladies_are.html. What excited me even more is that it’s written by Cory Doctorow, who wrote “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” which I liked a lot. In the words of Homer Simpson, “Everything has come together in a neat little package”!
Until next week (mere hours before Spain!), God Rest Ye Merry Blog Readers. Let Nothing You Dismay. (Except for celebrity antics and crappy work christmas gifts…)
