In 7.5 hours it will be 2012. I’m not sure how I feel about this exactly, but in general, I am not a big fan of the changing of the years. New Years Eve is pretty much one of my least favourite ‘celebratory’ occasions (expectations: too high, disappointment levels: through the roof) and I’m one of those people who gets into the depths of worry and depression about what they’ve achieved in life and where they’re going and it’s generally just pretty overwhelming. (I’m nothing if not completely neurotic.)
In terms of goals/new year’s resolutions for 2012, I don’t really make them but one thing I do want to do is to get a photo of Karlie Kloss. That and worry less, but I know that’s not going to happen so I’m happy with just the Karlie photo.
For all of you who have been reading this blog, I sincerely hope you’re not as jaded as I am about the turn of the year. I hope that you have things to look forward to tonight (keeping expectations at a reasonable level though) and that people are nice to you and you are nice to them and that you don’t spend a fortune on drinks and regret it upon waking up tomorrow. I JUST WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY GUYS. See you on the flip side.

Hello readers, how are you doing? Merry Christmas and the like. This is just a quick post to say I hope you have a nice day and that you’re spending time with people you like and that you’re overeating and drinking and doing whatever festive things you’re supposed to do on a day like today.
Christmas is not a huge event in my household. This morning we got up early and had this $70/head buffet breakfast at the Langham. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve had better, but I did consume three hash browns and some bacon and eggs and a champagne and a coffee and a pineapple juice so I can’t really complain. There was a young guy in charge of cooking eggs and I felt really sorry for him. His nametag said his name was Cameron. Poor Cameron. All I could think about was the fact that everyone was complaining about how slow he was at making eggs and that he had to work on Christmas day and how people are so demanding when they’re hungry. Anyway, now we’re home, I’ve opened a couple of gifts, my uncle is asleep on the couch, my brother has gone off to hang out with his friends and I have about 6 hours to kill before the next thing – dinner with my dad and his side of the family where I’ll get asked whether I have a real job yet, and when am I going to find a nice chinese boy to marry? I’m not sure where I’m going with this but I’m going to assume you guys are all too busy eating and getting drunk to read blogs so it doesn’t really matter.
Anyway, for those who are online and got to the end of that ramble, happy holidays! xx

I haven’t posted in two days. This is quite a long time for me, and yeah I’ve been busy but sometimes life just gets busy and overwhelming and sometimes you’ve run out of gift guide ideas or maybe you’re just lazy and putting together a post is just too much when it’s sunny outside and sometimes there’s things to write about but you just don’t want to overshare online for a few days. Kind of like when you get in a fight with a friend or you reach a stalemate or you’re so tired you can’t move and you literally have no words. Sometimes there’s just nothing to say.
PS. I hope the Christmas shopping is going well, folks. Mine is done and dusted.

We’re getting down to the wire people. Down to the wire. If you haven’t started Christmas shopping now, it’s about time you did because the next few days are going to be pretty stressful and let’s not even start with heading to a mall. Just avoid it. Avoid it all together and go out NOW. Because I’m a little disorganised, I’ve compiled a list of easily attainable last minute gift possiblities for today’s gift guide entry:
