I do not want to spend Christmas with Ms. Granola Suicide and her spawn

Do you know what I like almost as much as sad and British music? Sad and British movies based on books by sad and British writers. Throw in a sad and British soundtrack and you have a mind blowing convergence of sadness - and Britishness.

So make a cup and tea and pretend you love the queen as you listen to the soundtrack to About A Boy, a lovely movie based on the Nick Hornby book. The soundtrack is a collection of songs and short instrumentals by Badly Drawn Boy that makes for a beautiful but slightly melancholy album. "A Minor Incident" is perhaps the best song on the album. Everything has a lazy Saturday feel to it. It's nice, just like that cup of tea you're drinking.

Man, now I want tea. My cup of coffee is NOT going to be happy when I cry out, "Oh, yeah, tea! OH, TEA!" mid-sip.
