Fleetwood Mac

I’ve been home less than 24 hours from my excursion to see Cut Copy in Toronto (which was amazing and I will update you on later), and I am now off to see Fleetwood Mac tonight! Christie McVie will not be playing so I wonder whether we will be blessed to hear smash hits like Don’t Stop and Everywhere – both my faves. Despite her absence, her former spouce John, and Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood are sure to bring back some fond childhood memories.

2nd best.

wal-mart-with-pride1As I understand it the weekend prior to Christmas is the biggest shopping day of the year and today, boxing day, is the second biggest, but probably the most dangerous. The big sales are frightening and do something to people comparable to being inflicted with an alien strain of rabies. I suggest as you pack your enviro-sacs with gifts to return you consider bringing a discreet weapon and stock your new Ipod Touch with some serious audio-distraction to keep you from being enraged and infected.
