    Well i sort of remember my Christmas Eve, went out on the town and caught up with heaps of old school mates... so it went late. [face_mischief]

    All the family together, especially good to see my sister back from London. Brother got me some sw figures which was good. Hangover wasn't too bad, ate too much caught up on some sleep, woke up and now here I am.

    Planning on driving down to the Boxing Day test in Welly tomorrow :)

    Hope everyone had a good day peace out!!

    Pardon my interruption, but I just wanted to say a belated merry Christmas to Kitt (and everyone else) :).

    Christmas kinda sucked this year. :(

    A serious lack of family and I kinda felt really blas-a (spelling?) about the whole thing.

    Food was ok, but I really just wasn't in the mood and it kinda dawned on me x-mas is over-rated really.

    It's usually a great time of year to be with family members we hardly see year-round, but without that it was kinda average and without that fact there was little to celebrate really we we're not religeous.

    Strange really.

    Sorry, but just how I kinda felt at the time and feel now. :(

    My brother probably had the worst Christmas of anyone I know. He had to work, so he couldn't come down to be with us (he's a doctor), and he had to endure hospital provided Christmas dinner which he said tasted awful. He also had a raging fever, which broke out into chicken pox the next day (caught it from a patient, and wasn't aware you could get it twice). Yet despite being in this sad state, he still had to work, because the rural health system in NZ is so stretched there was no one to relieve him. Luckily he's resting up now, but geez ... the moral is, don't be surprised if your doctor turns out to be sicker than you when entering hospital during the holiday season.

    tell me about it.
    even though the boss is away this week, starting back at work in the new year is a real downer. I need a new job.

    given the nature of this forum I feel it is only fair to offer forum members a hefty discount on ewok and wampa stuffing ;-)

    January is like the 'Monday' of months ... kinda depressing. Not to mention the sauna-like heat.

    A stuffed wampa? Sounds cute :) Does it come with a detachable arm and mauled Taun Taun?

    I don't know who he is Moyima. Some immature flamer who was a CR till they got rid of him. Should have banned him at the same time I say!
