    ugh! what a 24hrs - just thought i'd use the oppurtunity to vent some wierness, and make a vain and obvious attempt for sympathy!
    ok, my last 24 hours...

    yesterday, 9am, get up, shower etc, normal morning stuff.
    work from 10 - 5 dealing with grumpy customers / audience members saying things like "i paid for this seat, now where is it? YOU, SIR, ARE TO BLAME!"
    5-5:40 walk home in pouring rain carrying heavy beer. wet, cold, not drinking said beer :eek:
    5:40 - 7 guilt-tripped into doin houseowrk by parents
    7 - 8 walk in pouring rain again to xmas party, stopping off on the way to buy nice wine for present, have to blag off ID, even though already CARRYING aforementioned beer, grrrrr, damn you oddbins
    8 - 2:30am, get rip-roaringly drunk -at last- with beer (always me and the beer, hmm)
    2:30 - 3:30 discover in my ultra-drunk state that we can't stay,realise i've been semi-attempting to chat up the hosts mum for the past half hour (oh, the shame), and so walk home, in the (you guessed it) pouring rain, fighting off the urge to hurl all over the pavement
    3:30 - 7am sleep. GLORIOUS sleep
    7 - 7.40am today - get up, realise that not only am i still tremendously drunk, but also tremendously late fr my bus, and so stagger as fast as my trolleyed little legs will carry me into town
    7:45 - get on bus, realise i havent got enough cash, and so pull an incredible exercise in blagging, right down to "c'mon man, it's christmas eve!" eventually get let on (geezer)
    7:45 - 9am most horrible bus journey ever - noisy kids, grumpy old people, near-miss accident :eek: all meaning i can't sleep, and cant' get rid of ahngover
    9 now- arrive at house #2, to find my mum isn't even up :mad: try and madly get ready for MORE driving to my aunts URG!

    IT SHOULDN'T AHPPEN AT CHRISTMAS, MAN!

    anyone else wanna share woeful (or joyful) tales of this lovely festive period?

    When you got older you realise christmas is just hype. Once all the presents have been opened you realise you have got:

    1) 2 power drills you have no use for
    2) Yet another useless cheap soldering iron
    3) 4 pairs of cheap torches
    4) 6 Pairs of socks
    5) A CD you already have
    6) A book you will never read
    7) 2 more pairs of bloody socks
    8) Some nice pair slippers given to you buy your great aunt maybel as she secretly wants you dead.
    9) £150 worth of cheques that bounce when you take them to the bank
    10) A clock radio that sounds like Basil Fawlty having a fit
    11) Some useless talking gadget that you just want to through out the window
    12) £50 worth of cash. You try and spend it on boxing day only to discovered the notes were in fact fake.

    I happen to have a distinct fondness of useless talking gadgets (with the exception being the talking parrot which repeats everything you say that I bought for my brother a year ago).

    13) A lovely day spent with your loved ones and the satisfaction of having bought people presents that they will enjoy (even if that just means they'll have warmer feet in all those nice new socks ).

    Ah, you see, what you need it a nice little pressie store/cupboard/box. Then you can take all the crap presents and store them to give to some other poor friend/relation (obviously avoid giving it to someone who was with you when you opened it/knew who gave you what) at some point during the following year/s.

    1) 2 power drills you have no use for- That'd do my Dad's presents for the next year.
    2) Yet another useless cheap soldering iron -Swap it for some bag of smellies I will doubtless be given? I think I could have fun with a soldering iron.
    3) 4 pairs of cheap torches -pairs of torches?
    4) 6 Pairs of socks -You can never have too many socks
    5) A CD you already have - Pressie store.
    6) A book you will never read - Pressie store.
    7) 2 more pairs of bloody socks -Hurray!
    8) Some nice pair slippers given to you buy your great aunt maybel as she secretly wants you dead. -Say they don't fit and put them on the fire when she's gone?
    10) A clock radio that sounds like Basil Fawlty having a fit -Pressie store.
    11) Some useless talking gadget that you just want to through out the window -Throw out the window. Or alternatively, pressie store.

    I never get money either

    I once got 3 pairs of slippers

    And I always get a small raft of Winnie the Pooh related stuff (because when I was below the age of 13 I was quite a fan (AA Milne not Disney (*spit*)...shame that's over 10 yrs ago now).

    I quite often get nutty chocolates (I don't eat nuts), and often some very odd clothes.

    I'm not very easy to buy presents for though - I've a tendency to just be content with whatever I've got, there isn't much I actively *want*.

    Still love christmas.

    Next year I want some stilts (and a substantial first aid kit to cope with the consequences of my bad balance )

    I hate gadgets so much because I am a programmer. I spend half my life trying to figure out how things work, the last thing I want is to try and spend ages working out how to use some stupid gadget!

    I don't even know how to use half the functions on my mobile phone. However if you were to ask me how a mobile phone worked I will be able to tell you. I'm odd like that.

    makes sense. very techy, but kinda simplistic with simple things. now which would you rather be? The one who can do this that and the other thing with a mobile phone, absolutely clueless as to how it all happens. Or the one who knows how it all works, but can't find that number of the girl he met last night?

    Merry Christmas - did you get any nice presents? Or any really really crappy ones ?
