This Christmas, don’t kill yourself

Hanging ToughChristmas is traditionally linked to severe depression and high incidences of suicides, not that it’s true, but when you are alone and you see people laughing and giggling on the streets, you just want to go kill yourself. Or someone.

Just. To. Stop. The. Giggling.

Is it any wonder there’s a song that starts with “You better watch out”?

Anyway, instead of meditating on mayhem and thus being a nuisance to everyone, you might want to sign up for the Christmas Flog Exchange. This is where we use Christmas as a excuse to get together, dress in latex and leathers to discipline one another with a whip.

Actually no, Freudian Slips aside, this is a bloggers’ event where we do not dress in sweaty outfits and flog each other. We merely exchange gifts and have a cracking (har!) good time. 😉

While the process is complex (for someone who just got up), Joone! and Hinata has posted detailed instructions. Don’t worry, the text will be slowed down for your ease of comprehension. Go ahead, do yourself a flavour, and sign up now.

And speaking of suicide, one does not need to display Kevin Carter’s chilling photograph to remind one of the horrors of starvation. Famine (and her younger brother, Feeling-Peckish-in-the-Wee-Hours-of-Morn) is an especially horrible thing to a food blogger. As such the ever wonderful Chez Pim has organized a Menu For Hope III in aid of the UN Food Programme.

Fellow Singaporean Food Bloggers Joone! and Chubby Hubby have also put up some of the most amazing prizes for the charity.

how embarassing that you managed to figure joone and i out so easily!!! i’d better put the thigh high boots back in the closet… seriously though, I’m just glad you managed to leave out puns involving whipped cream 😛

Oh dear, I think your comment on the boots will put a spike on this blog’s hits… Actually I deleted the whipped cream part as this blog is read by kids under 25. ;P

No, I can use my powers for good only.
