Quote of the Week

The Rock Star insisted on this as Quote of the Week. Christmas is a time of joy and giving; for making peace with one's fellow men. Supposedly.

The Rock Star and I weren't having a particularly good Monday. We'd been discussing, on our way to Tesco, the lack of good news of late. The US House of Representitives has just approved oil drilling in the ANWR. Big business seems to be able to get away with anything. So does big government. No one seems to have any respect for anything anymore. We were both feeling distinctly unfluffy when we walked into the store to find a mass of carolers warbling "O Little Town of Bethlehem", each in their own personal key. They were raising money for some charity or another, but unfortunately chose two teenage girls as collectors who's strategy was to chase after shoppers and yell, "Give us money!"

Me: If you rattle that tin in my face again, you little slag, I swear to god I'll smack you.

The Rock Star: Erm, Merry Christmas.
