For me Christmas is a religious occasion, and if you don't produce photos within the next 24 hours I'll find out where you live and make you post them, 'k?

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

^Sigh. If I must. grumblegrumblekidstodaygrumblegrumble

I went out shopping today, which wasn't in my original plan of avoiding the town centre over the weekend. My daughter was going to meet a friend in town but the friend had to cancel. Since I knew my daughter needed to do gift shopping for her friends (her last day of school is Friday) I offered to go with her. She had saved some money but I don't mind buying small gifts for her close friends. In fact, when she saw how much we'd spent on these gifts she said, "I'm glad I'm not that popular!" I need to be back in town tomorrow morning for a dentist appointment anyway, so plan to completely finish my shopping then.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

My crazy-ass sister in law wants a hand-mixer, but says she'll refuse anything that's made in China.

I have found about 8 different types of hand-held mixers in nearby stores, and they're ALL made in China.

I guess she's getting another gift card, the cow. Everything she owns is made in China but suddenly she can't have something made in China. Whatever.

Things like that aren't made anywhere but China any more!

Although, for exclusively political reasons Taiwan is included in the 'China' things are made in and a lot of stuff comes from there...

^she's a real nut job. I don't know how I'm going to get through Christmas with her in my house the whole day. I truly, TRULY can't stand the witch. But I will do my best to suck it up.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

I have a sis who's a nut too, she won't have anything to do with our parents; I think the guy she works for -and started dating while still married to someone else- isn't actually running a consultancy firm but is the head of some secret sect

Oh well, it'll be only me and the parents for x-mas then...

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

I don't need a countdown thread, I know it must be nearly Christmas; my closest friend is disappearing off to sunnier climes tomorrow, and that's usual for him from mid-December until February. Lucky bugger; I don't get to fly somewhere warm until mid-January...

Yeah, OK, true, perhaps I'm being a little grass/otherside about it... and I do prefer staying for Christmas in the UK, so I can't complain too much about that really...

Still, let us live vicariously - where's he going?

(I have customers on my paper route who cancel their papers from December through until April because they're heading south for the winter.)

Mauritius. Fortunately he's generous to his friends with the spare room in his place there; hence my nabbing a fortnight or so in January.

Cool. It's the best way to survive the cold.
