Thanks for the lovely snowmen, complicat & gyri!
I've been knocked on my butt by flu, which means no skiing. It's annoying because it's a perfect snow-year - my parents' street couldn't look more prettied up by winter if it was art-directed!
Someone on twitter posted this photo, which may be my favourite for 2012, for just summing up perfectly every dull holiday party that's ever existed. The two guys to the centre left look content - one guy happy with his grill. But the guys on each end have "they won't let me LEAVE" expressions on and then there's Michael, surreptiously checking his phone. It could only be better if they were all wearing Santa Hats, with the exact same expressions on. The chair circle is also amusing to me.
Hope everyone is having a happy & relaxing day!
