even though i don't really like people who are all scrooge-y.
but you know, it's mostly shit, non?
The ads and crap are all annoying and horrible, but it's not like you have to pay attention to them. Loads of people are out and busy and stuff in the days before and after, which is cool. You have an excuse to see family you don't often see. And/or you have an excuse to party a lot with friends. What's so shit about it?
i tried real hard
the only things i can think of are the hoardes of people running about town for the week prior to the event and being a little skint for a while. Both easily avoidable and unimportant when it comes down to it.
Some people are never satisfied.
i don't mind working in a shop in the city centre during december at all. it's all the "OMG LOOK AT US HAVING A REAL NICE COSY TIME" stuff that gets right on my tits.
what's not to like?
i'll be getting some new headphones (hopefully)
it's a good feeling
should get some more. you've got wine in it yeah?
i might just drink myself into oblivion tomorrow, although that would be weird as my family aren't really heavy drinkers as such.
nice and warm
get some in
plus i have to be in work at 9 in the morning
it's kind of nice, we get dressed up and have some pepperkaker and stuff and there's hardly any customers, except for the odd stressed out dad buying a board game or something.
from 10am until 1pm I'll be at a birthday party tomorrow!
then to church, then Christmas dinner/presents
spending the evening with family or what?
I'm doing roast lamb for 12 on Juldagen
its fun everything slows down and you have time off work etc.
it's what you make of it?
I went to the pictures to see White Christmas and had a cold pint in a cosy pub. I'm having a fine time.
And a fine 2009 to boot.
