Eeeeeeeeh, how are you then? Have a good Christmas? Mine was quite marvellous. Had a quiet day itself, and then Boxing Day was spent with my cousin, her hubby and their lovely kids, 3, 5 and 8 respectively. I think. And they were great fun. On my level, as I'm sure you can appreciate. We made balloon animals, built Lego robots and played Nintendo DS. Very exciting. I hope Santa brought you everything you wanted (within reason, he's not made of money) and that you're on the road to alcoholic recovery.
And a Happy New Year for when it happens. Just a quick note to those delightful people at the RMT Union who want the strike to go ahead on the London Underground on New Year's Eve: call it off you selfish bastards. Thanks. Now, I'm a pureblooded leftie, and am usually behind union action when it's needed, but that's just being mean. You'll ruin my night, and the nights of hundreds of thousands of Londoners, and we have long memories. I've been trying to think of some counteraction we can take collectively to show how bloody annoyed we are at being pawns in some daft ego trip from both sides. I can't come up with anything that wouldn't actually be a bit dangerous. Although all wearing T Shirts that say "You ruined my New Year, you bastard" on every platform as the tube pulls in might work. But then the driver might feel the need to do a classic "stop in the tunnel for 20 minutes for no apparent reason" in response. Curses.
Anyway, do have a Happy New Year, and if you're outside the Capital, spare us a thought as we walk for miles, get into a fight at the cab rank and then get mown down by drunk drivers. Cheers!
