How difficult would it be to get the entire company shut down and everyone made redundant?
Maybe phone the FBI and claim everyone else is in fact an alien in disguise and that they should all be taken back to Area 51.

This has nothing to do with me re-watching X-Files by the way.

Today I'm going to write my list to Santa!

Then I'll post it to my mum, because she knows his address.

Actually, to save on postage, if anyone else wants my mum to forward their's on too just let me know!

My boy will be 3 and 9 months when Christmas comes this year. He fully gets what the deal is, and hype will be through the roof. I honestly can't wait: got my shopping lists for people already.

Mine will be 3 and 7 months and I am dreading it. He will be expecting a proper present this year rather than the cheap tat I have bought for the past couple of years. :slol:

Edit:

strawberry float it, I am just going to tell him we are Jewish. He doesn't know bacon isn't kosher.

Co Op started putting out their Christmas selection today. New Cadbury bar with bits of ginger in it too. Exciting times.

I'm already booking events for Christmas sales as unfortunately Xmas preparations start way ahead in commerce or you get basically pushed out. Internet is great though as lots of buyers and no physical preparations really needed.

Anyone help me out, what kind of things do you buy in busy market towns/streets for Xmas?

We have a German market in Bristol every year and the only thing I have ever bought from any of the stalls was a gift box of hot chilli sauce.

I love wandering around the Christmas markets but it's rare that I ever actually buy anything to be fair!

I seek out the biggest sausage I can find and I consume it with great enthusiasm. I usually have a beer in one of those two pint jugs to go with it.

Pretty sure I've never bought any of the actual Christmas tat.

HYYYYYYYPE! This year will be great.

While there's never a Christmas market around here [not in the very local area, anyway... that I've seen in previous years... aside from turning on the Christmas lights...], I did enjoy the Christmas spirit that this place gave last year. Might have to see what festivities are going on this year, and might even cook a bit of Christmas content up. Could even maybe make a GR exclusive something.

Oh, yeah. Christmas movies have already started, so be prepared for the cynical "they're all the same plot" posts to start making the rounds on Facebook and the like.

What's your best Christmas film?

I'm going to watch Home Alone constantly until that particular zinger is decided!

...

Haha, he's fallen over in some oil! And now there's a can of paint on a string heading for his bonce! Oooof! He'll probably burn his hand or something next. Get in!

Absolutely literally legendary.

And then they recreated the fun of it a second time. And then they decided to try it a third time. And then a fourth, but no-one talks about that one.
