It's just four days 'til Xmas Eve, and there's no snow on the ground in Wisconsin, plus it's kind of rainy. But I've finished my Xmas shopping, the decorations have all been built, I've only got two days left of work before a five-day weekend (and one of those is a day when I spend most of it driving and in court, so it's not even like a workday!), and that all makes it a perfect time to have an upbeat song that's not upbeat really if you listen to the lyrics, but which does mention Xmas: "I Don't Love Anyone" by Belle & Sebastian:
And a picture! From outside Milwaukee's City Hall:
Plus bonus pictures from Xmas shopping yesterday:

And then Mr Bunches took Mr F's picture.
