    I scurried to the car to drop my son off at school, and my daughter at the bus stop for college. I am now back home, and shall not be doing much else.

    Fuck going out in THAT.

    I have to get a Secret Santa present - the organiser used a website and you could put a list of interests and even have a wish list. My recipient has done nothing at all. *gnashing of teeth*

    OH GO ON THEN, please re-schedule the dinner we've had booked in for TWO WEEKS, and which you confirmed you were attending YESTERDAY, as you are SO BUSY, as you have done for EVERY SOCIAL engagement for the past YEAR.

    Or maybe just DON'T SHOW UP AT ALL, like you did for your own BIRTHDAY DINNER.

    I know you're moving to Asia next year and want a PROPER CATCH UP, but actually it'll be a relief when you FUCK OFF.

    This is why I hate December, I'd happily go into hibernation if it was a possibility.

    I added a lovely beer selection box to my Ocado shop for mine, and it's arrived and it's MASSIVE. And the recipient will have to get it back to Sheffield on the train. Oh well. Beer.

    I generally find that whenever I have beer with me on a long train journey, it weighs less as the trip progresses.

    "Due to the resounding "success" of last years quiz, there will be another one
    this year at the Xmas meal.

    A "Cryptic Christmas" (using the word cryptic very loosely) quiz.
    Prizes for first and forth place (to throw in a random element)."

    Well I think THAT has finally made my decision to GIVE IT A MISS

    I don't talk to the people I work with much so it always makes a change to have some kind of Conversation at the Christmas meal. But I don't want that conversation to be about DECIPHERING CRYPTIC CLUES to the NAMES of fucking CHOCOLATE BARS like it was last year. I'd rather not fucking BOTHER. Not to mention the JOY taken in it by SMUG TWATS who probably think QI is a REALLY GOOD TV SHOW

    I just heard there are going to be TWO BOTTLES of red wine and TWO BOTTLES of white wine for 18 PEOPLE

    Honestly why not just CANCEL the WHOLE THING

    I'm going to TWO Christmas parties on the SAME DAY on Friday. First, it's our department's Christmas Lunch at 2pm in an Italian across the street from the office. Then the actual BIG shindig in a hotel at 7pm, - the latter is all paid for with free food and a free bar all night, the former we have to pay for ourselves. I told myself I'll just have ONE glass of wine with lunch and then save myself for the big event but I'm not sure I can trust myself so I'm wondering if I should just NOT DRINK at the lunch but then I remember I have to sit with a bunch of people I cannot STAND...

    I don't have a job so I miss the joys of such events this year.

    No I can't do it. Not if we can't go to the pub first, there's no way I can get through a fucking QUIZ on ONE GLASS OF WINE. I'll lose the WILL TO LIVE.

    You could always take some alcohol in with you and go to the loo to 'freshen up' and refill your glass there... :D

    They deserve whatever they get - quite literally. A santa that sings carols when you pass maybe, or a pack of novelty tea-towels?

    Mr S is trying to persuade me to go. Apparently I'll feel worse afterwards if I don't. I WOULDN'T BET ON IT

    Can someone remind me to nominate adults who cycle on pavements for Cunts of January, please?

    No I'm NOT going to move for you, you PRICKS. Get on the FUCKING ROAD.

    There used to be one fella in the usual CYCLING HELMET and all who used to DISMOUNT and RETRACT HIMSELF and his BICYCLE into the HEDGE when he same me coming

    I don't know whether he extended that to everyone or whether it was just me with my famed GRANDMA FACE on

    I HAVE to stop eating Lindt balls. I'm doing WONDERFUL things in the gym at the moment but negating ALL of it by shovelling those EVIL little things down my throat at the most ridiculous rate of knots. I'm not even normally that BOTHERED by chocolate!

    Oh and the mint ones...

    In a strange way, I admire that....bombing around everywhere, ignoring every traffic signal or road marking and taking on everything from toddlers to juggernauts with nothing more than the tring-tring of a bell. It's a bit like a squirrel striding onto the plains of the Serengeti and telling everyone to just shut the fuck up cos there's a new boss in town.
