it’s that time of the year

Aided by an early start, some “freeloading” stickers I got during a company meeting, and the 10th Birthday double-your-stickers promo, Don and I got our first Starbucks planner a bit earlier this year:



Aren’t we all such suckers for this planner promo? I meant that in a gleeful way, of course.

Question: is it just me, or do their gingerbread men look gay?


And it really doesn’t help that you can also get a package of “gingerbread boys.”


Anyway, I hope everyone’s enjoying the Christmas season, whether they’re giving to the commercialism of it all or not. Just remember it’s not just all about the commercial stuff.

In keeping with the season I have also changed my blog banner. That is a close-up photo of the Christmas tree at the top level of Rustan’s Glorietta by the way. See the Christmas ball at the left? That horizontal dark blob reflected on it is me taking the picture 🙂

Happy Holidays!

    Nice planner and nice banner! 😀 I don’t think the gingerbread boy is gay (kaya nga siya gingerbread boy, di ba?) 🙂
