it's only october, maaaaaaaaaaan
just makes me look like (more of) an arse
10 more humpdays till christmas ! :))
Only a matter of time til I'm subjected to the strains of Mariah fuckin Carey warbling like a strangled cat.
Finished working on the 23rd last year so didn't have any time to get excited about Christmas, it was just there all of a sudden. Not making the same mistake this year.
...sunday was a gorgoeus crisp day up here and as night fell i sauntered into a pub i like, and the fire was on and it was all very cosy and plesant and proclaimed that i 'feel really quite festive tonight'
the girl i was with told me i was a twat, i think she was probably right
I got VERY excited. Man I was with was very meh about it.
it's October. I've got a birthday (as have you I believe...), Halloween, and Bonfire Night to do before I even want to think about Christmas
i think people forget that some of us can't afford to spend all our money in december.
v. middle class privilege to complain and try to force me to spend my meagre december pay check in one month instead of spreading it out especially harsh on families where the mums and dads have to buy all the bits in the last month
Even though I'll get into loads of trouble, I just can't bring myself to do it. I love Christmas loads but it's not even Halloween yet ffs.
Just stay on my own and eat cherry bakewells and drink brandy. Also listen to the radio LotR series. I work over christmas if possible so I can be a martyr.
Minus points: fuck off, it's October. Also literally everything else about it, except mince pies and my "BAH HUMBUG" slipper socks.
God bless us, everyone!
(Glasgow xmas markets open and I do little else than eat cheesewurst and doughnuts and drink gluwein for a month solid.)
freezing my buns off, should be good though ya think
been saying that for a couple of months now
Declined 3 work Christmas lunches so far, holding a big time grudge for getting napkins from secret Santa last year
that I am going to be v choosy about which work-relatd invitatois to acept. last year, between team/ department/office/firm-wide events, and client thigns on top, I ended up with a lunch or dinner almost every day in dec (sometimes both). With it being year end for lots of clients I tend to be insanely busy and I nearly had a meltdown trying to do evberythign. So this Year I think I'll say No to most things.
(hurt myself getting it up the stairs, then couldn't get it to stand up and had to get big ange round to help. The, I couldn't get it out of my house on the 6th, despite dressing it up as darth vadar. and had to wrap it up in in a duvet cover (RIP) and beg my downstairs neighbours to help me hoik it off the premises (AFF THE ROOF).
after that, I am getting on delivered by a company which takes it right into your house, puts it in its stand/ pot, then comes to your house in the new year and ethically disposes of it for you. No needle rash for me this year!
this years works do is gonna be rubbish, not even sure if i'll go cause i'll be paying for food that i can't even eat and the plan is to stay in the same place all night
i will get some extra hours over christmas though which is nice
so I'm more excited than usual. Came to the realization last year that once you're an adult and see your family regulary anyway, Christmas Day is PRETTY DULL
