There are times when I despair - The run up to Crimbo being one of these. Now don't get me wrong I don't mind a bit of Christmas cheer , assuming I actually get the time to enjoy it. This year that is looking increasingly unlikely. However passing on from that, what I REALLY dislike is others acting like arseholes 'because its Christmas innit.' . Especially this year with Covid still stalking the land. Then of course there are all of those godawful Christmas adverts about the place, bloody Crimbo music in the shops makes me wish for the magical appearance of heavy weapons so I can blow the sound system away . One more bloody Michael sodding Buble crimbo crooning and I may just scream.
Whatever happened to the Sally Annie band rather than the piped mid-lantic slush. Where are Noddy Holder and the lads? People go on about 'Traditional Christmas ' but of course it isn't, it is merely the next phase in the neverending marketing racket.
Some of the so-called 'party-food' put out by such as M and S brings me near to throwing up just looking at it. Gawd knows what would happen if I was daft enough to actually eat any of that overpriced crap. A bad case of the two bob bits on top of Omicron because I was idiot enough to go to some silly party or other .... NAH I think I'll pass thanks.
No, as usual Carole and I are looking forward to a bit of P and Q perhaps with the odd glass of something French and fizzy and (given the foregoing) the odd striped minty sweet ! Even perhaps a mince pie or three and maybe some slight culinary overindulgence. A re-charging of the batteries for the coming year.
Yes we will be keeping our heads down more than usual .
Hearing assorted thickies going on about not being vaccinated is certainly worrying. Here in the NE of England something around 20-25% of so called adults have not yet had a single jab. This is mind numbingly stupid to say the least not to mention astoundingly selfish. Kill yourselves by all means - your choice-and it will improve the gene pool, but to infect others because of your intransigent stupidity?' Oh but we wanted to have our Christmas' and see our loved ones .... and possibly infect them perchance?
Not doing that either- Carole and I have both had 3 Civid jabs plus the flu jab- dumb not to really .So while we are protected up to a point it would be stupid to go out seeking sorrow for some transitory ... er... enjoyment so we'll keep our heads down and 'zoom' about - well actually portal but you get the point
Better that than coughing up a lung on boxing day .
