Ok, so the whole “once a month” idea for the Five Things didn’t work out. Don’t know who I was fooling, really. Instead, and to take the pressure off a little, I’m going to just make it a sporadic thing, whenever the mood hits me.
Five songs (yes, most of these will be Christmassy.)
David Bowie and Bong Crosby- Little Drummer Boy
Lilly Allen- Somewhere Only We Know
One Direction- Story of My Life
The Pogues and Kirsty McColl- Fairytale of New York
Five to look at
> One of the society’s I’m a member of in college is doing a 24 hour live broadcast this weekend. I’ll be involved, and luckily I’m used to not sleeping so I’ll be well able to stay awake for it all. Hopefully.
> Christmas film season is upon us, so I can finally watch Elf and not wonder if I’ve made a bad decision. Even The Holiday has been on telly.
> An article I wrote for the college paper a few weeks back got some pretty serious feedback- in a good way.
> My love affair with Pointless, which began during the summer, has been reignited. This particular round had me in stitches.
Five reasons I smiled
> I (finally) got a job. In the airport, which is no good for someone with serious wanderlust. Somehow, despite the early starts and the wanting to get on every plane I see, I’ve made it work for the last few months.
> My local team reached a Munster final. The first team from my county to do so in the grade we play in. No pressure, so.
> Naked 3 came out. It’s very pretty and I really want it.
> Forget Christmas jumpers, this is the only thing to be seen in for Christmas.
> In about a week’s time, I’ll be going home to spend some quality time with the family for the first time in months. I’ll also get to see the cat, which is nice too.
