My dad's a vicar and I've got quite a big family so we have quite a nice traditional Christmas. Not all my brothers are around so it's gonna be a bit a boring, but I just plan on getting shitfaced and eating loads of free food before going back to London.
are you religious?
I'm not a christian, and definitely not religious in a traditional sense. Still got respect for my dad though, he gives so much of his time to the occasion it's hard not to. I still go to church and shit though, to keep the folks happy.
Nice being north of the river again and it's cool seeing my mum and having meals cooked for me. I miss my housemates though.
I feel a bit like a teenager again
missing housemates and lady friend
but the exception being it's made me acutely aware of my lack of lady friend.
oh, nevermind. Bitch.
I don't come home very often so I get spoiled at Christmas, which is nice. I know, though, that by Boxing Day I'll be sick of everybody and want to leave again.
In fact, very boring, and my little sister is an awful human being, and drives me fucking mental.
Also, living in the middle of nowhere is a massive pain in the arse, especially as I can't drive.
who constantly has tantrums when she doesn't get her own way, and fucking screams at anyone if they type on their laptops.
in a calm and reasonable manner
I've been back a week already, since I'm on Christmas holidays from uni. I get on pretty well with my family for the most part, and we tend to have loads of friends round for Christmas Day so tomorrow shouldn't be dull. It's been good to catch up with a few friends from school as well over the few days.
not sure if it means that i hate my day-to-day life in london or i just love leeds, but this is so so so so good. despite being megaill.
I'd been looking forward to getting back.
Won't be long before I want to get to uni again. My family's pretty dull, in a lovely, lovely way.
suits me down to the ground frankly
compared to most visits. i've been here a few days and nobody's had any massive arguments yet. i was feeling pretty ill when i was first here and was hoping to get some dinners cooked for me and that, but my mum's cooking's not that good and my dad makes a massive hassle out of everything so that plan didn't really work.
(As shuttle lands on Pandora)
Dad: Where are they going?
Dad: What country is that in?
Sister: It's not a country, it's a planet. It took them six years to get to.
Dad: Six years!
(About an hour into the film)
Dad: It must have taken ages to do the makeup for all these people.
Me: They're CGI.
Pretty quiet- my sister's in Hong Kong at the moment, and my mum's at work. Me and my Dad just watched Shrek.
I don't mind the chance to rest though, had a few busy days with travelling, band shenanigans and seeing friends, so being able to sit back, watch tv and eat chocolate currency is fine by me.
its nice, if not that exciting. Feel sad that my brother has had to go to work, (he works in an old folks home), and also that I know my dad is spending christmas day on his own, which has to be pretty depressing.
The only down point so far is that I'm being made to watch corrie and emerdale when I'd like to be watching a good film.
My dad did the dinner which was AMAZING. best christmas dinner I've ever had and my mum did little table gifts. We all got a scratch card (dad won £5 and my uncle won a £1) and a little gift (mine was lipgloss!)
It's a been brills though. I love christmas!
on quadruple pay drinking wine.just watched toy story 3.this may be the best shift ever
the TV through the day has been shite though. Roll on the test match and tomorrow's football.
But no, the senile twat is back presenting a christmas special.
Retreating to bedroom with laptop.
There was a genuinely brilliant moment there when one of the judges told Vince Cable he'd "danced well but had a tendency to lean to the right". The sight of him trying to pretend to take it in good grace was superb...
On the down side Shrek the Third was a fucking awful afternoon film.
meat, booze, charades, Cartoons, presents, quality street. fuck´s not to like eh.
wish my family were the type to get a bit more drunk. the most interesting conversations i've had so far were about the merits of facebook and what exactly farmville is, and an argument with my sister about how she takes doctor who far too seriously (because every time i make a terribly witty or sarcastic comment during it, she sighs heavily, pauses and rewinds in case she missed a bit of vital dialogue). YAY CHRISTMAS
my dad was like "oh! it all makes more sense now. i thought some of my friends were actually talking about starting a farm." bless.
My dad during Coronation Street: "This programme is just getting MORE STUPID BY THE MINUTE".
Turns out my parents love watching repeats of I'm Alan Partridge, so that's what we're doing now.
Mam & Dad feuding yesterday though. They're finished now.
fuck me there are a lot of sofa ads
Went to the pub last night and caught up with some old friends (and drank too much cider). My siblings are all of an age when no-one gets up too early on Xmas morning, so it was all quite civilised with present opening and breakfast.
Lunch was good - my nan and grandad arguing over whether the plates were warm enough was a particular highlight. And also my grandad referring to John Barrowman as 'that raging poofter'.
I've been the golden boy. Washed all the stuff from christmas dinner and went up to shut the chickens in just now, after taking the dog out.
Now I'm watching Carrie. I find it the most depressing film ever, but it interests me cos it's set in my mum's "heyday". The 1970s is the crappest decade ever though isnt it?
Was at a party yesterday and some really hilarious person put on youtubes of 9/11 to do "a random buzz kill!". But then I hung out with the girl I loooove and we planned a wee date. Bads and goods.
If football gets cancelled tomorrow I will be angry.

my mum bought me a sexy blck electric violin for chistmas and that's all i've done is be on a short fuse and a bit pissed
'I think you drink too much.'
WELL DON'T BUY ME A MASSIVE BOTTLE OF JACK DANIELS THEN
Yes i am reve rting back to childhood.
miss london london
I get on really well with them, but I'm still sodding off today, Tube strike or not.
I want my bed back :(
been home for a week now. Managed to just drink loads but now that I realise I've just wasted a week drinking, I feel I should do something really productive so I'm entering an essay competition, applying for internships, learning Finnish etc. My sister is being really annoying and keeps pestering me to entertain her and go shopping with her and ah FUCK OFF YOU'RE 25 READ A BOOK OR SOMETHING.
but yeah it's been fine. i only got here at around 9pm on the christmas eve and am only staying for two more days so i think i can handle it. yeah.
