Finding Christmas Love

December 15th, 2008

With Christmas approaching, the thorny issue of festive love always arises. Anyone can roughly divide their friends into the ‘I watch Love Actually and feel pathetically envious’ ones and the ‘fuck fucking Christmas, I’ll be broody’ types. From my experience, people will go through recurring cycles of transition between these two admittedly wonderful attitudes in the months leading up to the, now 2009th, birth of the most troublesome baby in history.

Getting Christmas Love Strategies:

Try standing awkwardly under mistletoe at the office party until someone takes pity or until you see someone on the other side of the room doing the same and you realise what a desperate lemon they/you look.

There’s no time to waste so catch prospective partners’ eyes by wearing the wedding-cake-like extravaganza dress – remember there is no limit to red taffeta/cleavage/bows/glitter wearing during Christmas.

December 5th, 2008

Ok, for Christmas I either want a shisha with banana-flavoured tobacco or a 1950s telephone where you have to turn the keys around to dial a number.

A wooden chess set, an antique ring and The Lord of the Rings book - special hard back edition, with maps and cool extras.

A big, new dressing gown, with my initials on the back.

The Green Room – The Organic Hair Salon

November 21st, 2008

I hadn’t had my hair cut in over a year, as you can imagine the end result of this was that all my ends were split and a different colour to the roots, purely from extended exposure to sunlight. I wanted to get a proper haircut to alleviate the stress that having really crap hair induces and conveniently The Green Room opened (or should I say re-opened) recently on Gloucester Road.
