Well. You know my family don’t really do Christmas. (More about this in a later post). But it’s hard not to say “For Christmas, I’d like to get...” when everyone else is banging it into each other’s eardrums, and buzzing around like a blue-assed fly trying to come up with thoughtful, unique, one-of-a-kind presents. Which, more often than not, would turn out to be yet another supposedly-sophisticated book that one can hardly use for anything but leaving on the coffee table, because… it matches with the sofa. Or similarly useless offerings.

Enjoy the silly season, folks, and please help maintaining world peace by er… staying away from dreadful gifts!! Seriously, no one needs another Forever Friends photo frame or flaming red heart-shaped cushion! Hint: check that link above.
* Apart from the other present in the form of a certain homo sapiens that well, even Santa can’t deliver unless he specialises in kidnapping and concocting love potions. So please just stick to the Blue Dragon Gift Cards and stop pressing me with “No, but what do you REALLY want?“, won’t you? 😉
