Merry Christmas Megamix
I’m at work, with a suitcase full of presents from the four main present groups: booze, cheese, comics and computer games. Everything’s winding down here: most have already left while the entire megageek team – with their excellent Jesus beards and irritating* Mario Kart DS battles – are all off for a meal and drinks together and are unlikely to return.
I’m here until 8pm, by which time the entire office will be deserted and I could probably get away with riding around on a segway commanding mice to produce an imaginary Christmas Day edition of the paper. Naked.
Could, but probably shouldn’t. So it’s a good job my colleague Alan has left me a lovely Christmas mix cd to keep me company. He works at night, like Batman, and so finding the CD on my desk when I arrived this afternoon was a magical Christmas treat, like when Santa drinks your sherry or the underpant gnomes steal all your underpants.
It’s a mighty tracklisting – I’m looking forward to hearing Shonen Knife’s “Space Christmas” particularly. It’s Christmas… but in SPACE!
