snow

Wow, it's still 30 outside - I can feel it through the sleeve of my dress as I sit in the livingroom

Ah, the solstice at last, and I'm happy to say I'll be sleeping through sunrise tomorrow. Woo! Second item on the agenda (after sleeping in) is going to the pub up the street that has "Full English Breakfast 2 Pounds," which is what I'll gain eating it. Then I suspect home for a bit of deboxing, then we'll do a museum or something. shadowdaddy is going to have an early night as he'll be pulling a midnight-8 AM shift at some theater somewhere (this just a one off gig), but wechsler will entertain me, I'm sure.

Dang, it's late.

I had a great night at Sadler's Wells with spikeylady, bathtubgin, itsjustaname and wechlser watching handsome shirtless men dance around stage with leather pants on. Er, I mean, with feather pants on, at least in acts one and three, as this was Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake. Something about the production seemed to leave us all very ... energized. Not sure how to put it really, but I do think "festive" captures it. Talk about getting in the spirit of the season! What is it about watching actors die on stage that could possibly be so cheering? At any rate, I end the day in a very good mood, which I must frankly admit has a LOT to do with it being the start of my Christmas vacation. No work until January 2nd ... WOOOO!

I'm thinking of maybe starting a tradition of Christmas tacos. I can have duck here anytime, but how often can you have tacos? I can do a Mexican Christmas in London, I'll be the only person who does it, and for me, it will be the flavors of the old country. MmmmMMMmmMMM! And I can make enchiladas, too, since we've got lots of sauce and it would be yummy.

No games on Saturday - was hoping to get two or three but can only get one, so ... I guess we'll go see Meet Me In Saint Louis at the Riverside Studios or something similarly silly.

Happy Solstice! And - I will sleep in, thank you very much

Fresh back from a two pound English Breakfast on the high street, we're wondering what to do next. The wonders of London await! I'm thinking a museum, but not sure which one.

In honor of the solstice, I give you the Old One's holiday song, from You Tube: Scary Solstice (to "Carol of the Bells"). I'm so happy we've reached the pits of the darkness, but with it hovering at freezing, it's not like we're even close to being out of the pits of winter. Think it's time to pull out my Cthulu Carols, wherever they've gone to; it warms my cockles to think that one day, that little light gleaming in the sky will be heralding their return.

Sleep in heavenly webcowgirl,

I really enjoyed sleeping in today. It's nice not being at work.
