Don't dress as a bumblebee and shake your stuff at a disco in cork, far more energetically than your poor body is really capable of. This will lead to the following ill effects. Your legs and arms and neck will think you have climbed a mountain (while moshing), and will complain loudly about such tasks as climbing the stairs or standing up. You will contract pneumonia from the walk home in the cold, sweat freezing to icicles by the time you land back to your lodgings. Resulting in a furry sore throat, and an inability to concentrate long enough to make a cup of tea, let alone finish your masterpiece.
Other things to avoid include doing online jigsaws. Reading blogs. Writing blogs. Playing with your new camera. Playing with your new nintendo ds. Making lemsips every half hour. Repeatedly checking the website of the nightclub you were in for proof that you were actually there, and getting frustrated when they haven't put up the pics yet, lazy feckers.
The new camera is still blurry at night - (it'd be upsetting if it wasn't really) - but takes hours longer to download the pictures, and is an attractive shade of pink. See below a particularly fetching one of me looking like the guy from "the Goonies".

Background music provided by good ole Leonard Cohen. If you're reading this Leonard, I will accept concert tickets as payment for all the promotional mentions...

And here, ladies and gentlemen is the result - another poem in another shop - successful launch!! Try it... seriously... it's a great buzz.
Better than the late late toy show for thrills, and that's saying alot.
Apologies for the poor focus on this one - it's the clean looking sheet selloptaped to the outside of the cabinet. In this mission I disguised my purpose with a large handful of christmas cards, which I held over the area in question while taping up the card to bamboozle cctv watchers. Mastermind me.

I've realised I am able to fluently read Leonard Cohen lyrics upside down. Not that someone is unwilling to let me see them while he's playing the songs on guitar, in fairness while he's using things does seem to be the only time I want them - it's a hangover from childhood, but it's an interesting skill. I realised then that I cannot however WRITE upside down. Altho if I remember the late 90's ad correctly if I had only bought a Penali fountain pen, I would automatically be able to write in any direction with it, even upside down.
It's kinda like the crumb sweeper, an item discovered on Organize.com (don't ask why I was there) (really don't) - the ad says - and I quote "In case your toast rack fails to keep your table crumb-free, pick up those crumbs with this crumb sweeper. It's even good for non-toast crumbs." Pure genius! There was I about to go out and try to source a different sweeper for all the different types of crumbs that asail my everyday life - peanut crumbs, cake crumbs, those stubborn wheatabix crumbs! imagine. And if that doesn't sort out christmas, I don't know what does.
By the way anyone who doesn't put a poem up in a shop this month is only a (boc boc boc)
Chicken!!!! - and a can drinking chicken at that.
