Calling Londoners...

Calling Londoners..., originally uploaded by Ayoumali.

I need a nap


1. Bloody ice storm is raging outside
2. My hands ache from making so many Christmas wreaths this week
3. I slid on glitter at the shop, and jacked up my knee. How new rave....

and in the last half hour, I have-

4. Splashed hot sauce in my eye

and the piece de resistance-

5. Disposed of a dead mouse. Unfortunately, the dead rodent was discovered by my 15 month-old niece, who picked it up. Her mom did not, repeat, NOT, handle this well. Can't blame her.

Ahhhhh, sweet lady sofa.

Cutie pie

AmEx Agyness wins "model of the year" at the Brit Fashion Awards. Love her.

Key creatives in the fashion world gathered to honour the industry's brightest stars this week at the annual British fashion Awards. And there was, of course, only one choice for model of the year – Agyness Deyn, who has been dubbed the new Kate Moss. The leggy blonde, who used to work in a chip shop, made her entrance in a black Giles number with trailing hemline.

Twenty-four-year-old Agyness, who is the face of Burberry, took to the stage to collect her award from designer Roland Mouret holding her mobile phone to her ear. "It's my mum on the phone," she told the crowd, which included Lily Allen and Kelly Osbourne.

Christmas #1

As addressed in 'Love, Actually,' having the number one single on Christmas is a rather big deal in Blighty. Today, Stereogum posted a list of all the songs to achieve this since 1952.

I must confess, I am completely wild to hear the entry from 1980, 'There's No One Quite Like Grandma.' Martin Hannett allegedly once snorted some illicit substance off its gold record. And I don't know what Stereogum is smoking, dissing the entries since 1999. 'Sound Of The Underground' is an AMAZING single.

Despite the fact that Christmas, and hopefully, presents, are less than a month away, I just ordered this book.

Oh yes, I'm working my way into a nice little frenzy here....
