Hallo? Secret Santa? Don’t you want to step forward? The Angie Stone CD you’ve sent me has been on repeat on the stereo since yesterday, and I’d like to thank you properly, unless you wish to remain anonymous, which is

Had a lovely Christmas thank you very much. All the elements for it to make me depressed were there, lurking in the background for me to give in: flatmate away to see his family, most friends with their families too,

One last “cheeky post” then I’ll stop, cross my heart: The Cheeky Girls headline Glastonbury 2003! They may as well, since Glastonbury Festivals license application has been refused.

Ha – I knew it! According to Popbitch, Brian Higgins co-wrote both the Sugababes’ Round round and Girls Aloud’s Sound of the Underground. (Actually, I think his studio Xenomania only produced the latter). I had a definite feeling about it.

Which piercing are you? At last! One of those “which ___ are you?” quizzes that speaks the truth. Not too sure about being “spunky” in large crowds though. (*checks meaning at Merriam-Webster Online*) Ooh, they mean “spunky” as “lively, spirited”?
