When one Apocalypse isn't enough
Recent adventures in free book hunting: More coffeetable art books. We should really consider getting a coffeetable to properly show them off.

Well, we do have a coffeetable, but it is more of a clutter table and I have no idea why. It's not the only table we have and not the flat surface closest to the entrance either, however, everything always seems to end up on it. At one point I noticed a mug shortage and went to investigate and found nine used mugs on that table. And we're only a two guys household and didn't have any guests and it's not that we live in chaos or anything ... so yeah, new coffee table that isn't a clutter magnet is in order.

On other news: I've been invited to an ugly Christmas sweater party. Guess that's the price I have to pay for having creative friends. Or is this an American tradition maybe? Because the friend hosting it is originally from the US. I know some people in the UK, who actually own Christmas jumpers, but they don't throw parties in them. Not that I know of anyway.

So, I need to do some shopping to be properly dressed. It shouldn't be too expensive to find something seriously ugly in a second hand shop ... on the other hand, Christmas sweaters might be too ugly to even bother stocking them. Mmmh ...maybe I could find something semi-ugly and ugly it up a bit, sew some bells on or add some glittery snowflakes? Oooor ... build in a flashing light (like in the Santa hats) or a button that plays music when you press it? I'm really starting to like that party idea, it has so much potential for bad taste.

And now, time for some Ostfriesentee with Kluntje and cream, I've been looking forward to some all day. Oh, and more Lost Girl. Hot succubus goes well with tea, me thinks.
how: lethargic

UN UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER PARTY? HOW AWESOME IS THAT?

And I loooooove Ostfriesentee mit Kluntje und Sahne. Yum. It's a pity that one cannot drink it more often.

It's one of these drinks that need time. I can have a coffee while I'm walking to the subway, but for nice cup of Ostfriesentee I have to sit down and relax to fully enjoy it.
