  1. Morning all. Hope that those of you looking forward to a Christmas Eve all have a lovely one.

  2. Nice!

    I am sadly prepping to go into the mimes today. At last count, I think more than 1/2 of the company took today off. Wish I could've done so. Bah, Humbug.

    At the very least, I plan to stop to get some decent coffee on the way in.

    Happy Xmas Eve to those who celebrate!

  3. Maria, I hope you either have one of those super productive days since no one will be around to interrupt you or a day with plenty of schmoozing and nibbling on holiday treats.

  4. Merry Christmas Eve!

    I'm working :/

    Didn't get any cookies baked. Which, for me, is a large part of the holiday. But time time time wasn't on my side.

    Treat those cashiers well. It's been a long two weeks for many of them.

  5. Merry Christmas Eve! I'm supposed to be off today but worked for a couple of hours this morning. (Actually I was supposed to be off since Friday night but ended up working Saturday and 1/2 of Sunday). Think I'm finally finished until Wednesday.

    I love Christmas Eve. Finished wrapping a couple of gifts just now and am sitting looking at my tree waiting for my sisters to call and see if they want to go to a movie. Then HUGE family party at my parents starting at 4:00.

    My mom said she was at the grocery store the other day behind two "little old ladies" (my mom is 76) and she felt so sad because one asked the other what she was doing for Christmas and the other said she had nothing to do on Christmas. My mom felt so bad for her that she almost invited her to ours. But didn't. My first thought was that when I'm a little old lady I too will have nothing to do for Christmas - not having any kids or nieces or nephews or even many cousins with kids. We're all going to get old and go to the party at the Home I guess. Ok that's maudlin but mostly I was thinking about how its important to enjoy your family and friends while they are there to enjoy. You never know what next year will bring. That's what I'm going to do today!

    Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!

  6. I've had a lovely Christmas Eve. For a start it's my birthday and we always go out to lunch or somewhere, the whole family. Tonight we went to the pantomime (big British tradition)and had a great time. Awful jokes, lots of lights, singing, dancing, two men dressed as a comedy cow, fairies and villains, all sorts. The story (such as it was) is the fairy story of Jack and the Beanstalk, cue magic beans and a whoosh when the beanstalk magically shot up 40' high.
    Huge fun and the kids and grown-ups loved it.

    Hope you all have a great day tomorrow, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, and let's hope that the forthcoming year brings more peace and happiness.

  7. Happy Birthday, Nicky! And Merry Christmas Eve to everyone. I've been in NC at my aunt's house since Saturday - finally am able to get online. Been spending time with friends and family. More relatives here tomorrow, then I'll dash back to my own life early on Wednesday. Tonight I'm watching Wonderful Life, wishing I were spending the evening with someone special. Ah well, maybe next year. Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday, and has a wonderful day tomorrow!
