As Noddy Holder, lead singer of the glam rock band, Slade said ‘Ittttttttttttttt’sssssssssssssschriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas’ with a voice akin to a fucking foghorn.

So what are you doing at the moment? Have you got all the presents for your family and loved ones sewn up? What are you most pleased about snapping up? Have you any fears or dread about spending christmas with family? Have you already got drunk and snogged someone in an alleyway at a party? Are you at work or on holiday?

Tell me, you lovely bastards, what’s christmas like for you?

Poster First:

I’ve just got back from 4 days away with the family. There’s only a few of us, but my step-sister came in from Edinburgh, my step-brother from Cyprus, my actual brother from south-england. I got massively hammered on the first night and spent the whole day clenching my teeth until they nigh-on nearly shattered.

Dinner was amazing as wave upon wave of pain and regret washed upon my brain. It felt like someone had taken a tin opener to my head, rolled by brain around in grit and stuffed it back in with a meat-tenderiser.

I sat through some classics: Gremlins, Raiders of The Lost Ark, even Home Alone. Man Kevin is one precocious kid.

I had hair of the dog until eventually, around 11pm I was finally no longer hungover, but mostly drunk again.

Travelled back yesterday. Discovered my housemates have cleaned the flat. Buying all the trimmings tonight and then counting down the days at work until the weekend. Awww, freakin yeah.

I’m having a lot of trouble getting into the Christmas spirit this year. Had to basically go out and force myself to buy Christmas presents. Just not into it this year… or not ready. I dunno…. I am looking forward to a four-day weekend from work, that’s what I’m really excited about.

in an attempt to steer the topic back to the corse from which I had derailed it -

our house has a christmass tree, it has two strings off poorly placed tinsel on it – looks like a cheap tart covered in feather boas>

looking forward to several things but mostly im meh about christmas as ever, one day I will disband it and everone will sit in grey cubicles worshipping me.

peace and love.

Christmas for me is playing a concert on Christmas Eve (not a chip gig), waking up at 6:30 the next day even though I stayed up late, going back to sleep until 8:00, and then going downstairs in my underwear and opening presents with my family. And then we just kinda lounge around.

Christmas for me is all about Christmas Eve. Our family tradition is an abundance of snacks/h’ordeuvres instead of an actual meal. I’m going to eat way too many pigs-in-a-blanket, olives, and brie. I’ll probably have one small cup of egg nog, then realize I just want the bourbon part and stick with that.

So, yeah, whisky and finger foods ftw.

I’m not buying anyone a damned thing this year. I get shafted every christmas. My gf found some pine branches in the yard, and propped them up in the corner of my office, and wrapped them with christmas lights that she stole from work. Happy holidays.
