Well I could get all prissy and say it's nothing to do with Christmas but then that was overrun by thoughts that: I've not listened to Transformer (The Lou Reed Album that this is from) in ages. This was a masterwork by the BBC. God it's good. As Lou Reed said "I have never been more impressed with a performance of one of my songs." Then just reflecting on the tenderness of the song which caused a weepy moment or ten. This was juxtaposed with the remembrances of Christmas past courtesy of Aunty Beeb. Then the strangest thought "If this is all BBC how did the Coke comercial get tagged on at the end?

Please fill in the sentence as you feel fit Though I'd declare myself as a socialist many would be confused by my conservative (Small c) attitude to many things though I hardly think it to be particularly libertarian to think that ECT therapy is a little over the top in "treating" someones homoseual tendancies.

Which might be a suitable thought about humanity at Christmas.
As someone who is fond of the odd drink I'm still puzzled wondering how many have drunk sangria in the park though.
