Did you mention to the gift giver we've already decided this picture's a fake, @Ahhh Girl, and Ringo's hat is photoshopped on?

Not very Beatley, though it can be made so, I got the Sims 4 Seasons expansion because the wonderful @Ahhh Girl asked me what I wanted for Chrimble, and I unexpectedly got the Sims 4 Get Famous from the wonderful AG when she kicked herself for not using the discount I'd told her to use on Seasons and wanting something to use the discount on. ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gif  

Has your data recovered from the automatic download, @Ron Nasty?

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, Biblers. I slept for 12 hours last night, woke up thinking it was 9:30am, it was actually 11:45am...oops. 

I got my usual gift of a million books or so, tomorrow I'm going to my county's hospital to give away 40 books that I know I amn't going to read anymore (so my over-purchasing of books balances out, right, right?!?!).

 

As for Beatley things well I got:

The Beatles' Anthology DVDs (I got them at a good price, even though they'll probably be re-released in a year or two, which is probably why they were at a good price...).

IMG_0206.JPGImage Enlarger

Living in the Material World book (another one that I got for like €5, having had a quick glance through it, it's an awful lot of photos with very little text, if I had paid the full retail price for it when it came out I would have been annoyed).

IMG_0204.JPGImage Enlarger

My traditional Beatles 2019 calendar, I already expressed my delight for the photos matching their birth months but: LOOK GUYS LOOK

IMG_0205.JPGImage Enlarger

And the final thing I got was a goofy YA book about a girl who refuses to date anymore during her high school years because all men (as we know) are pigs. She's called Penny Lane 'cause her 'rents are big Beatle fans and her no-dating club is called The Lonely Hearts Club. I've already finished it and it's quite cute, a guy offers to take her to a Beatles' tribute band but her parents hate it because nobody can replicate the Fab Four, which I wholeheartedly agree with.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That's cool! I too was disappointed by the sparse text in Living In The Material World, but the pictures are good. I still like the book.

It's good that they included his birthday... but did they include his other one? a-hard-days-night-george-10

That book sounds really cool! I love it when books reference Beatles. You're right, there is simply no way to reproduce the Beatles, but Beatles music is still better than no Beatles music (most of the time.) We're going to see a tribute band on the thirtieth.

This has become a new favourite for me......

Sounds dour.......About a man lying to himself to find a little transient Christmas happiness.........

Not everyone's Christmas is like Donny Osmond's house.......Some have lost partners of a lifetime....Christmas can bring that into focus.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season! 

From experience, this time of year can be tough for closeted LGBTQ+ folks, so if you're in that boat and you need someone to talk to, I'm sure myself or other Forumpudlians would be happy to offer our support heart

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Just when I start to question humanity's intention, something simple like this happens and I get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Thank you.
