’twas the month before Christmas

It’s not even December yet, and the major TV networks have started broadcasting Christmas-themed shows and movies. Well, to be fair, it probably starts – at least – by about this time every year. The shopping malls, etc all had their Christmas decorations up weeks ago, so I suppose TV isn’t really the first to the party anyway.

I only had a half-day at work yesterday, finishing up at midday. I stayed back to have lunch, and went down to the cafeteria to put up more posters for The Compliment Project. I was quite chuffed to see that, of the two I’d put up on Monday, one had had all the tags taken (or I assume so, anyway, since the poster itself was no longer there) and the other had most of the tags taken.

(Yeah, I could have looked it up last night when I saw it but I was too tired to be bothered (but not tired enough to not be randomly browsing Twitter…?) Anyway, I still thought of it this morning.)

Turns out, it was started by artist Anna Sergeeva (in California?) Ok, to be honest, I didn’t read that much into it; I read enough to know what it’s about i.e. spreading compliments and hence kindness and positivity and love and all the rest of it.

Anyway, despite my lack of detailed research into this (to be fair, it was Sunday morning, and I’d just woken up), I totally think this is a great idea. I’m going to put some up tomorrow, and help spread The Compliment Project to Australia.
