Happy Halloween y'all! And to celebrate, because let's face it with this huge bump this is about as much celebrating as I'm going to be doing, here are some appropriately creepy news items:
- Heather McCartney compares herself to the late Princess Diana again - it's getting old
- Joan Collins shouldn't wear see through stuff but looks great(ish) for 75
- Yet another possible Big Foot sighting?
- German Halloween zombie mistaken for murder victim
- Get your AK-47 personalised with a hand-crocheted Hello Kitty shoulder-stock muffler (Thanks to the lovely Roberto for the tip)
I love Christmas, but I hate Christmas shopping - only because of the crowds and the chaos. Now that I'm roughly eight months pregnant (34 weeks on Monday), I'm definitely not in the mood to stand in long queues, or get shunted around by women with large handbags, or bashed into by tourists with backpacks. God, I hate backpacks.
Cue internet shopping - what a heaven send. Though, for the record, you cannot order hard copy vouchers from HMV or Virgin online - only e-ones which then get sent directly to the recipient via email. Great if you aren't going to see them over the festive period, not so great if you want to give it to them in an envelope in person. I'm just giving you the heads-up before you, like me, go through the laborious online registration process only to discover the fact.
I imagine my posts on here may become less frequent over the coming month, and may even come to a standstill once the baby arrives, at least for a few weeks. I'd ask one of my friends to be a guest blogger, but if my various attempts at getting them to contribute to other online endeavours are anything to go by, it's probably not a good idea. They're a bunch of lazy bastards. That, or the fact that they actually do what they get paid to do at work, and don't have time to peruse the Daily Mail every hour. Shocking really.
