It's 7pm on Christmas Eve, so I think I can be excused for using the cheating "InstaCarnival" this month :P I hope you're all having a great Christmas so far, but take my advice and get away from the computer and spend some time with the people you love (although I'm flattered you're spending your time here ;)). Enjoy the rest of the year, and I'll see you in 2008!
