all come together to form a gigantic blob of nothingness and ZOMG!
You'd think it was Christmas again...
...for three distinct reasons.
1: All this snow!
Seriously! This weekend, I took a trip with my housemates to see a friend of ours who's still at university (hahahahaha), and it's amazing as to the staying power of snow when you leave large cities. There are large parts of Cambridge in which it looks like a winter wonderland, despite the fact that it's been a week since any material snow has descended upon the British Isles. If I heard people caroling or saw decorations being put up, to be honest, I wouldn't think that much of it!
2: All this swag in Culture and Media!
And by 'swag', I don't mean any of its 9 Dictionary.com definitions, but all the EMBLEMS you can win! I mean, you can write a review and get an emblem; you can come up with a kooky caption and get an emblem; you can even predict the Oscars and get a self-important emblem accompanied with a speech by Meryl Streep* (aka PC's equivalent of an Oscar). It's like Christmas has come once again! (Also, I've decided to unsticky some of the contests, so this is my way of hoping they stay vaguely relevant to whoever reads this.)
3: I'm listening non-stop to 'Countdown' by Beyonce
I know it came out before Christmas, but the end of 2011 was when I first discovered the amazing 'Countdown' and couldn't stop myself from listening to it for a week. Cut to: today, when I accidentally stumble across it and listen to it - I kid you not - 10 times in a row. So, er, this one's probably more personal, but whatevs!
*Speech by Meryl Streep will probably end up being something I find on YouTube: not a fresh and new speech... sorry! But do keep donating to PC and maybe I won't have to lie in the future about celebrity endorsements!
