Any plans for Christmas Eve?

We`ve got all the kids at the moment and just chilling out.

 

Been up to see my Dad and Nan to hand over presents.

 

My 2 boys are going back to their mums shortly and my step daughter will be going to her dads.

 

This leaves my daughter, Mrs Rock Fan and I to go visit a couple of people and then to our favourite Indian restaurant for some great spicy food.

 

We will then come back and I`ll tell my daughter a lovely Christmas story to get her in the mood and then off to bed for her.

 

We will put out the obligatory carrot and drop of juice and then wait for him to appear :lol:

 

Anyone doing anything nice? :)

I just passed out presents to all of the employees in the office and now I'm just hangin' out planning what my next move will be....

 

I'm thinking of heading of to lunch with one of my friends and then stopping by a few stores before heading home and then off to the neighbors for a Christmas Eve get-together......

Christmas Eve is present-wrapping for me. Flipping hopeless at it. Every year I swear I'll just buy people box-shaped presents but every year I buy stuff like umbrellas (how the f**k do you wrap that?) & then spend hours on Xmas Eve wrapping the bastard.

Tonight we're going to my mother's. Both brothers and their families will be there for lots o' food and togetherness. :)

 

Will be a good time as long as my brothers don't try to "out macho" each other as usual.... :unsure::lol:

Two words: "Gift bags!"

Let's see, I USUALLY drive up the street about half a block to the in-laws to load up all the presents for about 2 or 3 trips back to the house, BUT this year, Mother Nature saw fit to drop roughly 2 feet (and still falling) of snow on us, so I'll be hoofing it for about 8 or 9 jaunts back and forth. Ho ho fucking ho. Then, if I have any strength left, I'll probably watch about 15 minutes of Christmas Vacation before nodding off - only to have the kids wake me up at about 4 or 5 a.m. This is the Lower Mainland of B.C., for crying out loud; we NEVER get snow like this. I now it ain't his fault, but if I see a meteorologist in my travels, it'll be all I can do to keep from kicking him in the schnuts.

Just having fun, we've played a few board games and we'll be watching a Christmas movie - then put little 'un to bed and read a special Christmas story.

Then once he's asleep sneak the presents outta the loft and downstairs under the tree. Then relax before tomorrows mayhem!

Right? This is insane. When's the last time we had a white Christmas? And because of it, I'm sure the church service will be cancelled. And if that is, then my day is limited to wrapping gifts and wasting time on here. Merry Christmas everyone.

That's it right there! :tumbsup:

 

Throw in some gluttony and thats my next few days.

 

Like Mike I am at a newer job, thank goodness, and have been at work this morning, but a 4 day weekend is just over the horizon and to mimick everyone else, it is snowing like mad here in the Pacific NW and has been for a week. I would hazard a guess at around a foot at my house which is roughly 11" more than usual... :)

 

Stay safe everyone.

    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A

Yeah, JACKYL born to play live, and ”30 Coming In Hot” is really ‘hot’ indeed. Very well recorded, mixed & produced, the set is very, very good and entertaining, and you have 3 new songs to enjoy as well.

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
