Having thought it through, for the first time in a few years I decided not to work Christmas this year and instead have booked a hotel in Glasgow. Not sure if I’ll bother with a Christmas tree therefore. 

I dread the Christmas/New Year period; the weather is generally horrible, I have no desire to go visit people as it’s damn awkward for everyone involved, the same 20 songs are repeated infinitely, and everyone expects you to be delighted to receive crap you don’t want, need or ask for. It’s not the case that everyone loves this time of year and it shouldn’t be met with “oh you’re just a misery”. So I will hole up in a hotel and get thru somehow.

  

At the very least you’ll probably get a bang up meal in the hotel! 

 

The thing I like about Christmas is I have no work and can lie guilt free in front of the telly (I lie down on the floor, will it cause me back problems in like 20 years time, let’s see!) watching absolute shite films. True bliss in my world.

 

INTROVERTS UNITE! Separately....in your own homes!

Lying on the floor I’ve heard is better for your back than sitting in a couch or a chair. 

Either way I took last week off traveling back home for Thanksgiving, and now all my students have decorations in their houses and today it snowed in Seattle.

It’s getting close to 40 degrees here, so it’s definitely starting to feel like Christmas. Inside the oven with the meal. a-hard-days-night-john-6
