          No, no, Frilly, I was just looking at a feature on Ornette Coleman.
          That I was about to masturbate was purely a coincidence.

    Is it me, or in the past five years, has the retail approach to Christmas totally changed.

    The sales kick in from the start of December, rather than Stephen’s Day.

    All the main retailers are out of the starting blocks for Christmas. My betting is everything will be premium priced for the next month, and then the sales will kick in the first week of December.

    Shoppers of the world unite, boycott the sods for the next month (as far as Christmas is concerned), hold (wait, wait, it’s like that charge in Braveheart) the wallets in reserve until December and get 25-50% off the cost of Christmas.

    “BT2s” , really? Not sure if your south Dublin lexicon is correct.

    It is “..oh my god, did you see that BTs have their lights up already like”…
    However, the ‘s’ is dropped and silent after the 2 in BT2 “…oh my god like, BT2 already have their lights up…”

    Ugh, I’m not setting foot in BT2 ’til January since they insist on dragging the 12 days of Christmas into November. Whatever happened to Advent?

    In Denmark it is apparently against the law to plaster the place in tasteless Christmas tat and pap before Dec 1st., and the Danish economy doesn’t collapse. Is there a way we can make that happen here?
