It has just been brought to my attention that the last minute of this year will be a whole second longer!!!
Apologies to those of you who knew, but this is a major revelation for me. 2009 is a second further away, damnit!
I feel that we now need to think long and hard about how to spend this extra second. It's time enough for an extra sip of your drinky, a peck on someone's cheek, a full runthrough of all of Robbie Williams' decent songs - the possibilities are brief but endless!
So, how will you spend yours? I'll be holding my note on SingStar just a little longer in celebration.
