I have seen the Christmas Invasion!! No, really...

There I was, sitting at my office desk after everyone else had gone home, staring out of the window in despair at the huge quantity of extremely tedious and tight-deadlined work I still had to get through before being able to go home. My eyes wandered across to the other side of the street, and what did I see there?

Answer: Santa Claus (or a bloke dressed as him), leading a large squadron of about forty people (mainly women) dressed in identical elf uniforms, each carrying a large wrapped present, and accompanied by a dozen more people dressed as reindeer with brown jumpsuits, antlers and red noses. They all marched down the street in brisk and rather stroppy fashion – some of the elves looked really pissed off and were clearly bitching to each other – then they marched right past my window, around the corner, and out of sight.

And lest anyone has forgotten, it's July.

Either this was the Christmas Invasion, or work-related stress has finally got the better of me and I've started to hallucinate....
