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.
