Today was the turn of Christmas and its aftermath, from bibliogirl. A narrative piece, stepping its way from the drip-drip trickle of money pouring out of your bank account in the run-up to Christmas (here represented by the heartless electro of the Pet Shop Boys, Flying Lizards, Annie Lennox) through the rocky overstuffed weirdness of Christmas itself with its highlights (I'm always touched by your) Presence Dear by Blondie, glorious moments (Victory by Bond) and sheer total freakiness (thank you, the Goodies) to the blissed out food coma of Christmas evening and finally to I Feel Free by the Foo Fighters. Gruelling yet uplifting, like Christmas itself. Go under the cut for the full track list and a blast from the past -- the wacky video to ZZ Top's TV Dinners
In other news, M&S eat in for £10 is back on! I just ate my fat and salt allowance for the week. Saving the wine for the weekend, though.
