What is everyone planning for the holidays? It is 45 and rainy where I am today... PERFECT cuddle weather but alas no one to cuddle... and I have to work. Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, is brunch with family and walking dogs at a local shelter in the afternoon. Christmas Day, I am staying in my pajamas all day, eating appetizers and drinking festive adult beverages, while watching Christmas movies. Quite honestly, I am excited about having a super low-key holiday and simply resting and being.
Similar here. Weather decent. No availability to cuddle close by. Will spend quiet time.
I will be full-time relaxing, with 110% continuous effort, and no breaks.
@2dogmom I work all day Christmas Eve until 7:00 and then I go to Christmas Eve service. No Christmas cuddling on that day for me either.
@2dogmom you’re getting the weather today that we had yesterday. Tomorrow I’ll be relaxing and hanging out , then Christmas Eve service. Then Christmas Day is immediate family and gifts, the hanging out and watching sports. Then maybe go later that night to look at more lights.
Christmas Eve I’ll be celebrating my 30th birthday with my immediate family and opening one present. Christmas Day, the family and I will open gifts, watch The Nightmare Before Christmas (and other animated Christmas movies), have dinner and just relax.
I'll be eating Chinese at Great Wall Christmas Eve and Christmas day go to my brothers house . Hopefully I'll sleep
I will be stealing Christmas with my sleigh and pet dog.
If it's anything like today, getting ghosted by another cuddler. At least this time I wasn't wandering around her town for an hour and a half after driving over an hour to meet her.
@geoff1000 I like 110% continuous effort... giving it your all.
@ILikeWarmHugs I always sort of liked working on Christmas Eve when I was younger and worked retail. People were always cheerful for the most part and festive.
@adorable48 oooohhh light looking... but that means putting on shoes lol
@Pasion2 HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
@pmvines Chinese will probably be dinner tomorrow night for me too... hope you get some rest boo.
@FunCartel I have no doubt.
@2dogmom Thank you SO much and happy holidays to you!!!
I’m going to read my favorite Christmas story: “Oppressed In The Butt By My Inclusive Holiday Cups”, by Chuck Tingle.
Also: happy Hanukkah, you filthy gentiles.
@hogboblin you never disappoint. to you for no particular holiday reason, just because you black-light up my world with your dark humor.
@hogboblin LOL. I bet you own a black dreidel with skulls on it.
Nah. I just eat chocolate gelt. And deface images of Jesus while hissing.
@2dogmom thanks! Last day off was over Thanksgiving .
@Pasion2 Happy Birthday, everyone else Happy Christmas Eve. I'm settling in for 48 hours of turkey and egg nog. If I feel ambitious, I might even practice my hibernating.
Oh, the funny guys are here... smh
@hillbilly will that eggnog be spiked or no?
@2dogmom try Sailor Jerry Rum. Egg nog will never be right without it again :-)
Funny guys, scatter! The Fun Gestapo is here!
@hogboblin it is my thread... and "funny" was tongue in cheek... funny to some, not to all.
@hobgoblin Hope your 8 Crazy Nights are the best yet- Happy Festivus to the rest of us :-)
"funny" as in amusing, or as in strange ?
@geoff1000 well not amusing... at least to me
Maybe the CC forum should come with an allergy warning, "Caution : May contain nuts".
I sincerely apologize for defiling the sacrosanctity of your thread.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be disappearing.
@hogboblin eyeroll ... bless your heart
Once a thread is started, it is never “your” thread. It is the community’s at large.
Ssssh. Be careful, or you’ll disappear.
@FunCartel maybe so but that doesn’t mean I have to appreciate the comments from everyone in the community esp when they mock the intent of the post. I just find it unfortunate you cannot block people and keep them from commenting on your threads.
