|Proof-reading is so important, you guys.|
Can't you just almost taste it? Senseless eating, wine before noon, reading for pleasure, getting guiltlessly lost down an interwebs rabbithole .... Ah, the holidays. We're not there yet, but here's 6 crumb-like morsels in the meantime.
1. Sales tips: 12 ways top performers close out the year
As we approach Fuck this Shit O'Clock, this article almost goes against my firm belief that if there is any time to slacken right off, it's now.

Mainly to my children to encourage them not to follow my junkyard mouth lead - and here are some more alternatives to the eff word. (Potzblitz, they're good!)
4. Mike Baird mural
Slow clap for the lord of the Lockout Law.
5. Which Aussie ad campaigns won Christmas 2016?
Eight of Australia's Christmas ad campaigns were put to the test to measure their creative effectiveness. Here's the rather clinical breakdown of the ads that are supposed to give us the warm and fuzzies or, at the very least, push us into a purchasing frenzy.
6. Christmas bucket list
Simple but simply says it all.
Jingle all the way (because no one like a half-arsed jingle)!
