That’s not so surprising — print deadlines mean that an awful lot of “Christmas” content tends to be written several months in advance — and I’m definitely not complaining. Well, at least not until somebody doesn’t pay me.

Anyway, the point I was trying to make was that I’m currently a very busy little journalist. So what did I just spend thirty minutes doing?

I’ll let the images do the explaining as to why it was worthwhile for me:
