For all those who had enough of the phony cheer .. cheesy carols .. annoying relatives dropping in without warning .. crass materialism ... and all the rest of the holiday madness ..

Grab a drink .. throw darts at carolers .. cook up a reindeer steak .. and escape the madness of the season ..

Always amazes me how nice people appear to be during the season, and the rest of the year they hardly nod hello.

'Tis the season to be phony.

la la lala land…

It will be just another pointless lonely holiday where nothing is open, rubbish on tv, spent alone, drinking. just like the last 15 or so. Listening to all the obnoxious neighbours partying till 3am, playing music, pretending they care about each other.

I'll be drinking though, so hopefully I pass out before it becomes too noisy..

bah humbug.

OK you win??

No decorations here, no christmas music, no tree, no trays of cookies, just NO.

I will be wisking the over excited, over gaming, over lego'd "grand" here for some quality downtime from whatever society has attempted to morph him into and just be chilling working on spelling & math. Maybe squeeze in a bonfire or two out back.

It's quiet here for a reason and all while the rest of the world is recovering from it's tinselly-hangover of shopping disappointment, relatives battling over who got shafted this year with the worst gift ever.....we'll be happily playing cards and watching Shaun the Sheep.

well.....maybe foghorn leghorn or rocky & bullwinkle.

I'm just happy that ebola™ and ISIS™ get the holidays off or at least their importance wanes while TPTB hock the wares they couldn't $ell throughout the year. They do this under the guise of celebrating Jesus' b'day ergo using Jesus (again/still) ALL the while Jesus would be the first guy saying STOP the insanity!! If Y'all recall this is why J got whacked and it was pinned on the world's first 'Lee Harvey', Judas. Now Thanksgiving lasts until the start of the 3rd quarter of the Lions game (NFL™ hasn't paid taxes since 1966) and it becomes 'Pre-Black Friday' and then folks beat the 'snip' out of each other for crap they can't afford/they don't NEED and then get saddled with more debt! Yeah that is what Jesus wanted..

What would make it more offensive? Maybe if We can $ell perfectly fine, LIVING trees and jam the aforementioned commercial crap under? And then leave them outside on the curb or worse, drop it off of some roadway and let someone else enjoy our holiday.. Folks equating theirSelf with either Jesus (receiver) or Magi (giver)..

Cheers mate,

I'll raise a glass with you anytime anywhere. As for my end, my better half is half a world away from me in your corner of the world. I'm stuck here finishing up cancer treatment and feeling like _________________. I'm getting t the point that very little makes me smile anymore except the emails and nightly chats when I can't sleep because mmy Docs took me off all pain meds. Cold turkey pull off 2 pain meds, I can't chew have rouble swallowing and sleep is almst unheard of. # the #&$% holidays...
