I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

I’ve always been a little jealous of our friends in the Northern Hemisphere… at least, when it comes to Christmas. The thought of a white Christmas sends me quite green with envy. Perhaps it’s because of all the Christmas carols and Christmas TV specials that have wormed their way into my heart over the years. “6 White Boomers” never stood a chance.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life… but it’s also the first day I give up TV for 2 months! (List item number 14, courtesy of my bff, Tracey).

In fact, I tried to start the challenge yesterday, but forgot, and accidentally ended up watching The Morning Show (my loyalty to Larry Emdur shall henceforth never waiver). It included a very engaging piece on “Extreme Cougars” (and not the four-legged kind either). It was both disturbing and enthralling.

But that’s TV!

Of course, I was still reeling from missing the final episode of Neighbours for the year. I had my whole evening planned out and then my equally fanatical Neighbours fan of a friend’s tyre exploded in protest and I was stranded in Milsons Point.

Bummer.
