eating loads of nice food [./]
getting presents [./]
no work [./]
classic telly [./]
don't get me wrong, i know where you're coming from, but you're aiming your angst at the wrong places, man, let go, just because everyone else is enjoying themselves doesn't make you a lemming doing likewise.
can't say it's felt particularly Christmassy, but it's been a solid effort, 7.6/10.
Gonna get a pizza in the interim #decent
worst two days of the year no doubt. would actually prefer being at work.
tomorrow is just gonna be dull & awkward. With the gf's family who don't really drink, don't play any games, the Dad single-handedly chooses what we watch on tv while the sister drones on for hours about her children.
My family are a laugh but about 200 miles away
hate that i HAVE to go out tonight aswell.
want someone to open the wine but that's stressful cos ive noticed i drink at twice the speed of everyone else
Gotta win it tomoro or 2014 is gonna be a haaaaaard year
And have generally sat around doing fuck all.
Of course I'm enjoying it.
landlord is reclaiming it due to financial difficulties of his own. It sucks but we found somewhere new dead quick. Still, this flat was uber cotch so to speak.
not moving till the 28th so tomorrow will be loads of beer, it's always sunny in philidelphia, a mediocre christmas dinner and presents!
and soon to make it four. Eaten loads and been watching Peep Show and Simpsons. Life is goooood.
Not a great time of year for me personally, might get a bit more out of it helping people out.
Until the familial spot-squeezing started.
watching my girlfriend play mario galaxy and listening to foals while sort of slurring some utter shit about how i'm proud of them as a band but it's surely bollocks. HO HO HO
my housemate turned up a short while ago after drinking 8 pints and 2 whiskeys in the pub, he has to go to work at 11 tonight to work till close which'll probably be about half 5/6 in the morning. I fear to get through the shift he'll have to continue drinking or do some coke. He's had a big bag of maccy d's though and gone to bed for 2 hours so let's see how that goes.
he's fine. about to watch die hard. moving on.
Also been jumping quite a bit between white, red and fizz.....there's an outside chance I'm half cut
only got five of the chaos emeralds :(
Watching bad Santa on my own. Time for london
Was an answer of university challenge last night.
Ur so highbrow
the closest thing I have to a plan is just to listen to the Ice of Boston on a loop
Trying to get home to Italy and I was making big exclamations about driving there from Cardiff to pick her up and make sure she didn't spend Christmas in an airport. Then she managed to get in the air and I've finally be able to get drunk and now I'm LOVING christmas and fighting family over board games and I just ate santa's mince pie and port and watching ghost busters and looking forward to the kids running around screaming about Santa and happy happy happy
no electricity and therefore tv, music or hot food, intermittent 3G, one hour battery left on my laptop, no pocketmouse thread it seems. this was the worst christmas ever
What's the news on the power, you gonna get any?
it came back on about an hour ago, pretty good news as bbc said it would be unlikely to be fixed today
Glad to hear that ThingsThatFly!!
"How can I stop my dog chasing everyone on a bicycle?"
Got as far as saying the "su" of "suck it's dick" before I could stop myself. You people have ruined me.
Yeah I probs should have just said it huh
And it probably would stop a dog chasing a bicyclist as well in fairness.
Everyone wants to settle down to a good film at this point in the day.
toy story 3, muppet christmas carol, home alone 2
my mum is sleeping and my dad is shouting at a computer an my sisters are sitting quietly on their phones and i am sitting drinking a bottle of wine by myself. dinner was better than usual though. doctor who soon.
Yeah this. My brother's vanished to play football manager. Thanks ant!
Had to work overtime to not burst out greetin. Not sure why but the last 10mins of that film really gets me!
pretty much constantly drunk
and got a chili jam making kit, I love christmas
i had a nap and was sick a bit, couldn't sit on my actual bum properly cause of sciatica and arthritis so i had to sit weirdly all day. #pogdogs was good.
haven't had a single drink cause i'm on antibiotics (same as last year).
we've had british gas out twice since christmas eve. boilers broken but now the heating has to be on FULL BLAST until tomorrow when they can come and fix it. shower isn't working properly so i might have a bath (had one bath in ten years or something).
i get to see two dogs later if i can make it out the house.
going to hospital tomorrow and need to go to the bank. can't buy anything online until i go to the bank to sort my account out.
back to work saturday, dunno what i'm doing for new years yet.
as we actually to go have it at our own house and not travel to parents. In-laws visited us. But, it could be much better. All down to my mother in law really....
She's a big lady (mainly down to diet and lack of exercise) and doesn't sleep well. She claims to need to sleep in the front room, on the sofa, with full control over the telly. Thus we are kicked out when she wants to go to bed (around 10.30pm), otherwise we feel awkward. She might sleep better if she didn't eat food, drink tea and watch tv.
The whole day is basically a farce. Her poor day, who is always exhausted (due to work demands and vitamin B12 deficiency) sleep for all but 4 hours of Christmas day. He constantly got harassed about it. She gets him to the dinner table by pouring him a beer and leaving it at the table. Then, a pint and a glass of wine later, she's slating him for drinking too much and telling him to go to bed.
Oh, and we can never have turkey. Her mum doesn't like it, so that's that. I have not had a turkey dinner on Christmas day for nearly 8 years.
The house is a real mess, due to he eating biscuits in the front room, her dog tearing up all the wrapping paper (not the dogs fault...). I now have to clean it all again, just like I did the day before they got here. Otherwise I would have got moaned at for not having a clean house.
and I'm 31, married, with a kid on the way!
in his wife's ear and get her to speak to her parents about being fucking appalling
To the point where I now just speak my mind openly in front of them and I imagine I come across as pretty pissed/grumpy/ratty all the time they are here.
It doesn't help the her mum is stubborn, opinionated and inconsiderate and that her dad won't intervene as he has (after 30 years married to her) worked out he's best off just keeping quiet.
It's only going to get worse when the baby arrives. The wife and I have already decided that next Christmas she won't be using the front room as a bedroom and we having a fucking roast whether she likes it or not. It's gonna be fun telling her all this...
We've always had christmas at theirs, so you can't complain what she doesn't it's her house and we were guests. This is the first year we have lived in a house big enough to have guests for christmas. We've only been in the house two weeks so have been just too busy to really make proper plans so it's kinda just gone as before. It'll be different next year.
Good thing I'm leaving for the airport in twenty minutes, then.
The joys of staying with a smoker.
i didnt spend it with my real family
