Season's Bleatings

So, kids. It's that time of year again.

Here at Surly Towers the preparations are in full swing. Well, I've bought a turkey. And some Pringles. So we're all set, pretty much. I get to see Small Person on christmas day this year, which pleases me no end. Then it's lunch with Mother on Boxing Day, and off to Fifi Sis' that evening (sans Mother. Woo!) for karaoke and much silliness. Hurray!

The pressure of wondering what to buy for people, actually getting round to buying it and spending three weeks vaguely knowing I ought to wrap some stuff but not actually bothering to do it means that, as usual, I have left everything until the very last minute.

All of which is a bit of a long-winded way of saying that D-Flat Chime Bar is closed for the festive season. I'll be back some time after christmas, when I will launch into a protracted whine about how fat I have got over the holiday, and how January sucks because it is long and cold and dark and hasn't got any money in it and how I can't even seek solace in sweet, sweet alcohol since we have decided to Go On The Wagon and maybe last a bit longer than this year where we got to the 8th of January and went to the pub.

So. Anyway. Ever mindful of the need to watch my cultural manners, I will close by wishing you all a very happy Winterval. Click here for seasonal joy (needs sound).

Carry on.

Blimey, is "carry on" back? Oh, and that tramp Santa as well ... it's almost like the old days when there were only five bloggers and it were all fields round 'ere.

Have a relatively happy Christmas and don't go on the wagon.

zanna - see you on the 27th (what the hell do your kids want for xmas?!)

spinny - there but for the grace of whoever....enjoy your festivities and remember, a family xmas isn't a family xmas without someone drinking too much port and falling off a chair. make it you.

geoff - many thanks, and the same to you and the lovely betty.

belladonna - i am VERY excited. more so than small person, i rather suspect.

Merry Christmas all.
(2007 might be the year of 'prayers on the toilet', btw - just for me, I mean, not world-wide obviously - that would be silly. Or would it?)

Merry stuff to you and SP and Other 1/2. May Santa visit with a bulging sack, the Ex behave like a normal human being, and the neighbours shut the fuck up.

See you after.
