A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
::ahem:: Sorry, wrong fandom.
Anyway, I was sitting here thinking to myself about life, the universe and everything* and I thought Self, you're getting restless. Life doesn't have as much meaning any more and you're suffering from a terrible case of ennui.
So, off I trotted to Google (only metaphorically, of course, since I was sitting at the computer and there was no actual trotting involved at all) and googled "cure for terrible case of ennui." We'll ignore the first option, since I'm pretty sure it's immoral, illegal and physically impossible. Also, it would be a 'mare to source a llama at this time of night.
But the second option? Well, apparently, the best sure for a terrible case of ennui is to use a picture of a small grey naked alien wearing a festive hat in some way.
I thought, you just happen to have one of those to hand.
Of course, I couldn't just randomly
post a picture of a small grey naked alien wearing a festive hat for no reason. That would just be daft. Which meant, I had to have a reason. So, I continued to think. Self,
I thought again, what possible reason could you have that would necessitate the use of a picture a small grey naked alien wearing a festive hat?
And then it came to me.
Which is a tl;dr way of saying SGA Secret Santa 2011 is open for business *\o/*
