The Charon QC Blogging & Drinking for BIG SOCIETY Award

As I sit here sipping my not-quite-chilled-enough, not-really-my-favourite Chardonnay because I finished all the Pinot Grigio unexpectedly early, I gaze upon my latest award with a sense of completely unearned pride.

Do go and visit the entertainingly bonkers, yet informative and insightful, Charon QC if you fancy an award of your own to enhance those parts of your blog which look somewhat forlorn and neglected. It covers those stubborn understains that you just can't shift from velvet upholstery and flock wallpaper beautifully.

I am most grateful for this pleasingly relevant and appropriate award as it is far time my efforts in this area were acknowledged and rewarded. The composition of my hilarious ditties, my groundbreaking posts and photos of me in my underwear simply wouldn't occur without the ingestion of several bottles of vino blanc on a regular basis.

Also, no sex bloggers like me any more and none of them will give me an award.

Luka's Christmas Present

As you can see, I have spared no amount of time or expense in creating a wonderfully festive blog post for you, my loyal reader.

It's that time of year again when I like to pause a while and take stock of the year just passed and the future unspooling before me.

Then I like to have a drink or two to take the edge off it all.

Live in the present, that's my advice. It is the only way to be happy. Let the past rest easy in its grave and future lie cocooned in its womb. This, after all, is why Christmas, Yuletide, the Mid-Winter Solstice is such an important, longstanding part of our culture. You need one day out of the year to just enjoy the moment. To eat, drink and be merry and not give a toss that tomorrow you'll be fat, hungover and broke. A day of not dwelling on the consequences of eating an entire tin of Quality Street nor remembering what happened last time, just going for it in the spirit of immediacy. This is the real joy of Christmas, I feel.

So, raise your glass in a toast to the here and now. Merry Christmas you lot!
