well how about that
your friends would get to you for dinner then have the same problem?
long walks through a near-deserted 28 Days Later-esque London!
on christmas day.
when i get a degree and sell out and earn A MILLION POUNDS i'm going to move to soho and host family christmases purely so i can go for morning christmas walks around the west end.
doing it wrong
i'm usually too full of food and alcohol to move from the sofa, never mind walk to the train station. do all your necessary travelling on christmas eve if need be.
they've got their own things to celebrate
Take the rough with the smooth, innit.
would react if they started running public transport on Christmas Day for all the godless foreign heathens?
and then some
personally speaking i'd quite like to be able to go back home so i don't have to sleep on my mother's sofa.
I'd be all for having a single day of the year where no one works.
but yeah, the usual parental sofabed for two nights for me too /o\
HEY, there's a christmas party at esquires on saturday night. wanna go?
and meant to paste it in after. oops.
AWW. Sadly not. Bedford - Deeping on 26th for Kirstymas on 27th. Not back home to sanity until 30th, mnnngh
cos they did out of hours support for a couple of housing departments and some companies that ran microwave transmitters and stuff. they paid something like 5x basic for that day so i tried to get them to let me work but they gave it to some hindu guy whose family didn't celebrate christmas. chuh.)
*ticks off another reason not to ever live in London*
i remember having to get a rail replacement bus from luton airport to get home to london. the driver went down the M1, around the M25 to west London and came in on the Westway. the guy next to me reeked and drank skol all the way. worst boxing day ever.
