    good god surely there is nothing worse than people doing christmas shopping? (though a mob of rabid DAoC fans may come close) every single thing about it bugs me, from the proud parents who thought it would be a brilliant idea to bring their entire brood of screaming babies into the city (including a double pram) to the checkout/pressie wrapper person who's so fuxored with dealing with xmas shite all day long that she's one step away from murder. I'm also miffed with myself for catching the chrimbo feaver (off some wailing brat no doubt) and feeling slightly panic stricken because there's only three days left oh dear god :(

    my girlfriend, bless her, has thoughtfully chickened out of organizing the food fest declaring that she can't deal with working out what to wear, me getting underfoot and going out to get stuff done without having a wee nervous breakdown. the fact that I am allowed to have the breakdown is perfectly acceptable naturally, just as long as I get everything done before the nice men in white lab-coats come to take me away away.

    now I have to do the dishes. someone shoot me please.

    here's my usual christmas plan that seems to work ok for me ...

    at the start of november consider what presents you will buy for each of your loved ones and work out how much you need to spend.

    whilst doing this organise which family member you will be having xmas lunch with.


    when there is only about 2 hours left to get the presents bought hit the the shops with avengance (baring in mind you know what you want and where to get it from).

    you should actually find that most of the shops are empty and goods are being slashed in price to get them out the door and dont forget some wrapping paper


    last but not least get home and wrap the pressies up then sit back and congratulate yourself on a job well done with the minimum of hassle

    I follow a similar routine JBP but with a lot of nagging from the relatives...

    But i feel the way Callous does ... its all a load of bollocks really. Its just a relgious festival that we have come to accept as part of our life. I like Christmas in that it makes a lot of people happy but its fucking annoying to get reminded about it 2 months in advance...
