Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, 2018

Hope you’re having a happy and fun holidays!

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Merry Xmas, happy Life Day, and a solemn, dignified Sanguinalia! (is environmentally conscious and reuses chat jokes for the board)

You folks are awesome and should keep being awesome.
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

I got a bunch of small things but there's plenty to love about spaniel-themed drinks trays and a small collage of photos of George. :D Perfect for spending the week with 'im too!

Pretty decent Christmas here this year, just waiting for dinner to be ready in a few hours. The smell is killing me.

Graham lost his luggage when we flew to my family in Sweden. :( But we just got news from the flight company that it's been located, and it will probably arrive here tomorrow or the day after. So it'll all be good. Also, we had a bit of a flu, so not the best Christmas ever. But my parents have been spoiling us and we got some really nice presents.

Ohh, crap, that's not a nice experience. Hope it gets sorted out soon, and you have fun!

Well I *was* having a good one but now it's ruined.
On a related note, I sincerely hope Sakurai breaks his leg or something.

Sorry about the hassle, Graham. Glad it's all working out.

Me? I got a bunch of kitchenware, since I'm moving soon. That's great because I need it! Though there was a solitary fun thing, a Cloud amiibo.

And thanks for the sympathy!

Sounds like a good haul.

Merry Christmas, all! I got Octopath Traveler and the Kingdom Hearts 2.8 remaster, a bunch of funny Star Wars shirts, some sorely-needed new pajamas and a spiffy new winter coat.

Fun story: Spent Christmas dinner with the whole family at my aunt and uncle's. One of my cousins' young kids somehow got themselves trapped in the upstairs bathroom, and since I was the only one in earshot, I opened the door for her. I spent the rest of the night half-jokingly hailed as a hero by everyone. ;D
