It's the first of December and already I'm sick of Christmas! You can't pass a shop or open a newspaper or switch on the TV without hordes of greedy fat cats pushing "bargains" at you, in order to snatch your money and leave you up to your ears in debt for the new year. Beautiful models and "trustworthy" celebrities, hired at vast expense, hawk the fat cats' planet-plundering goods. And yesterday some daffy bishop started moaning about "nonsense" carols (CLICK). Isn't there always one? Why these religious twerps keep trying to claim a British pagan festival as their own is beyond me. Kelly Brook posing in front of a Christmas tree with artificial snow, advertising Calendar Girls at the Noel Coward Theatre in London, is about as good as it gets (title link). Mistletoe, anyone?
