Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

I quite fancy...

...a hot cross bun. I think I smelled some cooking a couple of days ago. This must be the source of my desire.

This seems kind of wrong, given that hot cross buns are traditionally associated with Good Friday, a day noted for being a flexible feast but always falling two days before Easter Sunday, whereas today is a day noted for being seventeen days before Christmas Day, which is itself normally a good three months before Easter Sunday.

Hmm.

Tell you what, I'll have a toasted tea cake instead. I mean, that's almost a hot cross bun, but without the actual cross.

Tonight we're gonna party like it's...well, 2011, actually...

At Sarah's work Christmas do.  Am a bit overwhelmed by the noise, but all present seem to have thrown themselves into the sci-fi/future theme with great enthusiasm.  So far, have spotted at least three stormtroopers (one cost £1500, apparently), two Buzz Lightyears, one each of Darths Maul & Vader, a Marty McFly, Spock and assorted other Federation members, a full complement of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a Beachcomber, a Tracy Brother, two Master Chiefs from Halo (one of them Sarah), and...that's barely scratched the surface.  I'm left muttering, "the people...the things..."

Oh, and the venue is right opposite Mornington Crescent station.  It may be difficult to restrain myself when we catch the tube home...  :-)
