09:30 am - Christmas Card to you
Hi folks, Instead of sending you a Christmas card I donated to Oxfam on behalf of you. This year I paid to Educate a Child on behalf of my livejournal f-list.

It's been one of the strangest years ever. I liked Charlie Brooker's piece this week in the Guardian.
2011 has been like one big end-of-season finale; a climactic episode in which multiple story arcs come to a head. It's used up far too much news for one year. How can 2012 possibly compete? Surely the event cupboard is bare.

Yes, they threw it all at us this time. Next season I hope they (and by 'they' I suppose I mean The Universe) plan something a bit gentler for us all. Perhaps a musical episode, or a blooper reel. That's all I've got the stamina for.

I hope for abrinsky's sake it isn't a musical episode, but a blooper reel would be perfect.

If Abrinsky's voice is anything like mine I think we may have to mime singing like I used to do in church. Open and shut mouth while trying to look like I'm joining in.

He doesn't have a bad voice, he just hates musicals :)

Thank you for the Xmas card. I could do with a blooper reel too. Fear we may get the mid-season cliffhanger.

Cheers Altariel. Oh, just realised I need to make a Christmas icon.

I'm looking forward to "Occupy... The Musical". I'm thinking leads in the mould of Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald.

Only a matter of time. It's already an episode of Law and Order, it seems.

That's so funny, but not out of the realm of possibility - one of my friends is a singing teacher at a posh cathedral school and got her girls to write one act of exactly this as a 'fun' end of term activity...make of that what you will!

Thank you!

SantaHat!Yorick FTW, too.

Well, considering that the End of the World is supposed to occur next year, I think that counts as the ultimate Sweeps Week stunt.

Thank you! I like this Christmas card.

Personally I'd be happy with a clip show of only the best bits of the previous decade.

Thank you! That's a wonderful idea. I'm praying to all the gods I don't believe in that 2012 will be better.
