Merry Xmas?

Well once again it is upon us, silly season, it's now December the 24th but also for me now the end of the working day and working week..... Bah Humbug!!!!!!

Unusually for me I'm not feeling as festive as I usually do, usually by now I have decked the halls, baked a xmas cake and been so merrily intoxicated I have away in a manger'd. As I look around I count 3 pieces of draped, not even hung pieces of tinsel, adorning various bits of furniture.

So I'm just home from work, my head is still frazzled and I have made no festive plans at all.....
This is extremely unlike me.... Xmas is important to me, the rest of the year can be a total bag 'o' bollocks as long as I have a good Xmas.

So here's what I'm going to do tonight.....  I have a bottle of mulled wine that I acquired several weeks ago.... I have "It's a wonderful life" on DVD I have 2 glasses at best left of my Cognac, one I will have in about 10 minutes, the other after Xmas dinner tomorrow. I'm sending out for a takeaway and sticking in a 40watt bulb then I'm going to drink the Cognac while I have a bath... order the takeaway so that it arrives just in time and slowly seep into a mulled wine inflicted stupor and remember the words of Charles Dickens... the generally acknowledged expert in celebrating Xmas.

and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us!  And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!

For everyone else here's The Ramones
