Would have been interesting, great Christmas otherwise haha.

But damn I seriously haven't been feeling too good probably from all the food over the last weekend or two. I eat pretty healthy thesedays and when you go back to the crap... it's so easy to feel it.

Fuck it, bumped. Why bother making a new thread?


Christmas is in three weeks. Who's got plans? What'dja get for people?

I haven't done any sort of shopping yet. Frankly, I don't know what I'm getting anybody.

No plans to head out of town. I've only got Christmas Day off and I'm saving up my paid personal leave for my birthday next month.

For whatever reason, I still don't like Christmas much thesedays. I can't really pinpoint why though. The music especially just bugs the heck out of me.

Working at the center, I've been having to listen to holiday music since Halloween ended, so I feel you on that. Even when I'm driving the vans, the clients insist on listening to KOST 103.5, playing X-Mas songs all day every day. At least they occasionally throw in Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

No, I also get it. I haven't really been digging Christmas for years. I think it's coming with being a childless adult. You don't really think about what you want or what you're getting for others, and you're not seeing the holiday with fresh eyes these days.

I think the only reason I'd get excited about it was getting to go out of town for a while on the guise of visiting family.

Yeah that makes sense. And the family keeps shrinking with some grandparents passing and families splitting and it just all feels kind of routine now. I don't even have any money this year to get my family much at all, if anything, so that doesn't help much either.

And who likes snow?

Well anyways, I guess my aunt and uncle with my cousins are all coming in this Christmas, so that will be cool.

Good grief, this'll be our first Christmas without Lola.

It was heartbreaking enough the one year we were piling up presents in front of her Christmas morning and she was asking why we were doing that. We said it was Christmas. "IT IS?!" she asked, suddenly stricken with depression that she didn't get anyone anything. She was always so generous.

*hug*

My grandmother passed right before Christmas after we moved here, so I feel you.

This year seems to be the year of "meh"... no one is really doing anything. My friends here and I are having a little Yule party, but that is about it. Got a few people presents, but otherwise I think this year people are just getting peppermint bark and that is it.

*hugs* Sorry to hear Rogue.

Christmas was a big deal for my dad's mom whom we lost two years ago to cancer. I'm thinking with all the grandparents I've had passing over the years, might be why my enthusiasm for the holidays has kind of died off as time goes by. That and well... Rogue has an excellent point about some of us without children. That would probably spark things up again.

Hugs all around.

Finally did our annual walking around the Naples area of Long Beach, looking at the lights along the canal.

I did all my Christmas shopping this weekend. It took up my whole paycheck. Got Brandon a new TV, our first flat screen. Let him pick it out himself and I paid for it. Looking forward to hooking it up to the computer and streaming things on it. I've got him a few other things, so at least he has some surprises under the tree.

Got my parents a 7.25-quart Le Creuset Dutch oven. They usually retail for nearly $400, and Amazon has them for $335. Picked mine up at an outlet mall for $240 since it was on sale. Oh man am I looking forward to cooking things in it.

I'll consider my new job at Quest a nice present, haha. Good to have money again! Maybe I can get some little things for the family after all.

More cooking utilities and experience is definitely what I need as well.

What kind of TV did you get?

Also, dutch ovens are the BEST things on the planet.

So... I guess we are doing a Christmas dinner for the three of us... my mother in law got a prime rib so I finally get to try hers (I've been hearing stories for years). Going to see Star Wars on Christmas Eve since Kaleb has family stuff the next day so he can't revel in heathen movie day with us. Oh well.

43" LG LED. Right now we're using it as a second screen for our computer and streaming things from the 'net onto it. This is awesome.

Really looking forward to Christmas and getting to see the other presents getting opened.

Heck yeah! That's what I do in my room with my 40" heh. Also if you guys have Steam games, you can use Big Picture mode with the TV too.

I have a 32" LG flatscreen (about 4 years old on Christmas), right above my computer and yet I don't bother connecting it.

I need to sort that out and play DKC.

Just doing usual stuff like christmas dinner and sorts. Might watch one of the OFAH specials or something as well.

So what's everyone doing this weekend?

I've got nothing planned at all. We don't even have a tree up. My parents have been on vacation since the beginning of the month. Still haven't even gotten anything for Brandon.

Already did things with some family last weekend before they went out of town. So just going to my parents new place (bit more out in the country, kind of nice to get away) and hanging out there for the day. Spent a bit too much on my family and nephew... haha. Got him a big Power Rangers guy and an Iron Man toy too.

We had an ugly sweater day and secret Santa at work today. That's pretty much it for my holiday plans.

I guess at some point we'll try to go over to Riverside to see the Christmas lights on the Mission Inn?

Yeah, I've got nothin'.

I'm not really into festivities so I don't really mind a low key Christmas this year, lol.

So far all we've done is just go out and look at Christmas lights on a few days.

We went to Sleepy Hollow a few nights ago, Naples the next night, did nothing on Friday but lay around in pajamas since we were tired and it was pouring rain. Yesterday we drove out to Riverside to see the Mission Inn all lit up. They had the Gingerbread truck.

No plans for today at all.

Just hung out all day with the family. My nephew is 4 so he gets all the focus and it's fun to watch him. Sister and parents made an excellent full breakfast then a lunch/dinner when they rarely cook haha, it was shocking. The weather here hit 60... um WTF. Strange and fun Christmas all around. Back at home and time for some games.

Merry Christmas all!
