Is it typical for you to fall asleep after Christmas dinner?

Years gone by when I was with my ex wife and spending Christmas day at the in-laws, it was customary once dinner was finished to fall asleep in front of the tv.

 

Or is this a regular occurrence? :unsure:

 

One year, about 9 of us were asleep in the lounge, noticed with one eye open before drifting off again! :tumbsup:

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Seriously, though, not at all. Sounds very strange.

 

I couldn't tolerate that kind of scene under any circumstances, but to be honest I think my wife's family do do this after we leave. We got to my wife's family lunch first, then we leave and go to my family for dinner. I couldn't imagine anything worse than what you describe (:lol:) but I actually think my wife used to get in on it too.

I think nodding off to dreamland is a great idea, but it's hard to get any actual sleep when you keep hearing, "You forgot to build (insert name of needs-to-be-assembled Christmas item) in (insert name of child)'s room", or "We have to move all this stuff from the living room into the other rooms", or "You're a lazy, fucking lout. Get up and do something. Anything."

    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
    • Thats not even close to what I said.
