December reflections

Stop pretending you are diligently working or internet shopping because the reality is you are reading this blog. And while I don't typically revert to links abuse, I can't help but think today we all deserve it. Because as anybody stuck in an office will know; eating mince pies whilst arranging Christmas cards on your desk is hard work.

So for a few of my favourite London links this week:

This YouTube from the driver's cab on a London Underground train. And you thought you suffered from tunnel vision?

This website to encourage Americans to visit historic England in 2007. Happy 400th Birthday America!

This map of the London 2012 marathon course. Because everybody needs a New Year's fitness goal.

This photographic portrait dedicated to derelict buildings of London. No doubt a few places ripe for the next Banksy.

This example of just how helpful Londoners can be to one another.

If all of this linking has distracted you even further (life is one big excuse) from your last-minute chores, fret not - tonight is late night Christmas shopping at the Design Museum. A great chance to find unusual, quirky presents, design cards and wrapping paper. The Cafe will be open serving mince pies and mulled wine. Tonight until 9PM.

Do you have a spycam there CS? I opened up your blog page after just finishing off my packet of Tesco's hot mince pies. My boss is off at Exmouth Market, my secretary at Coast and this is THE life.
In 3 days next week. Keep feeding through links!

Do any of your links have sound? Can't do with getting sacked after all.

If America is really 400 years old ; why do most Americans act 4 years old? Give me a gun and let me run around and shoot people. That's grown up?!

Ella - that photo is at More London site between City Hall and London Bridge. I should know I look out at it all day. And Simply Foods do a damn fine selection of mince pies.

The Design Museum is fab for MOMA cards and odds and sods.
