22 Days

Ok… perhaps I was feeling a little over ambitious about the ‘daily countdown’ thingy.

Had a fun weekend. Had to head to work on Saturday to support the new upgrade going on, but my presence was not needed, and you couldn’t imagine my surprise this morning when I found out two of my colleagues had done the night shift. It was like… WHY?!?!? They, especially the chick, acted like she’d done me this GREAT favour by showing up. I was like, why didn’t you call me??? I was around, and I won’t have minded night work ( cos then I won’t show up all DAY, he-llo). But whatever right?

Anyway, met up with Darkman, he came to my crib, a move I regret cos our touchy security guy was around and complained to my sister, who SUDDENLY realised that maybe he shouldn’t be at our Anthony place. Keeping up appearances, she said. I don’t give a toss ( a thought I’ve found that I have more often this days). We went out instead and had a LOVELY time. Got home at the ungodly hour of 10. Was that enough for us? NO, we still had to kill 4 more hours on the phone…

So, I strolled into work this morning (not following the staff bus cos it left ultra early this morning, and I went against my better judgment and had a 1-hour chat with Darkman at 2am) and looked in the mirror, only to not recognize myself. I kid you not. I looked DARK and PIMPLY. Anyhoo, on climbing into my floor… I heard it, resonating quietly but obviously from the in-built speakers in the ceiling (those things never work)…

CHRISTMAS CAROLS!!!

They’re easily the BEST part of Christmas for me (after the sparkly lights of course, woot!). I remember since I was a child, Silent Night and O’ Holy Night have been my best, and for some reason, they both used to make me cry. Especially the bit at the end of Silent night that goes ‘Sleep in heaven in peace’. What can I say, I’m emotional. It’s always ‘interesting’ to hear all these artists come up with a Christmas album, but the best I’ve heard so far are NSync, Destiny’s Child and maybe Christina Aguilera (if she didn’t butcher it a little with her voice).
For some reason though, I’ve barely heard any this year, and we’re in December.
What’s going on people? Cool Fm used to be my one-stop shop for Carols, but they’ve been slacking these days, running us down with adverts half the hour.

I think I’ll go buy a Christmas CD. Or not.
