i reckon we were surprisingly restrained on the christmas front - certainly when compared to last year's festive onslaught. it was partly due to our efforts to squeeze in every request, apart from rage against the machine. it's all a bit silly isn't it? i mean, is killing in the name of really what people want to dance to at christmas? well we aint playing your 'counter cultural' game. especially when some people seem to be taking it Very Seriously: i still can't believe one girl reacted to my disinterest in the "campaign" with "so are you sincerely telling me that nice n sleazy's doesn't have an official position on this matter?", WITH A STRAIGHT FACE. lordy. although she also repeatedly insisted it had to be played before midnight despite it already being 12:20, so maybe the whole thing was a really really really clever and really really really funny joke...

shockingly, there are no photos this month due to lost cables and forgetful minds, but just look out your window! christmas is everywhere!
