Before I give you this week's photo, I'd like to share a few lines of Keats. I found a paperback of his complete works for four quid in the bookshop so I picked it up, being painfully aware of how little literature I read.

I just wanted to say I'll leave it to your capable imaginations which one was me at eleven o'clock when my brother came home with a bunch of friends -_- Nevertheless it was an alright New Year.
